In a democracy the poor will have more power than the rich, because there are more of them, and the will of the majority is supreme. – Aristotle

Special cheeses for the holidays are already on their way to Herma’s! Some will be here just in time for our first open house. We are excited about this and hope you are too as some of these cheeses only make an appearance once a year. One fascinating cheese to be sampled this weekend is Beppino Occelli’s…
Only a small amount of this type of cheese finds its way out of Italy, making Raschera a special addition to any cheese platter. It has a savory and salty taste that can be moderately sharp if the cheese has been aged. The name comes from the Raschera Alpine lake located at an altitude of 2000 metres in the Maritime Alps.
25% off Valtellina Casera DOP
The production of this cheese was first recorded in the year 1500. The taste is sweet with a touch of dried fruit, and is very delicate, becoming more intense as it matures. Delicious with salads, classic Lombardy dishes, and on its own with glass of red wine.
Celebrating Election Night Together
Herma and the gang will be watching to see who will be the next US president on election night, November 8th. Will you be watching? They plan to spend the evening together nibbling on one of Cathy’s special cheese and charcuterie platters while enjoying a fine glass of wine. If you would like a cheese platter of your own for either election night or just for fun, be sure to call 905-885-9250 or stop by to order. 14 hours notice is appreciated.
Fondue also makes a great choice. Check our blog, hermas.ca and facebook for recipe. Plenty of Gruyere and Vacherine in the cheese department!
Have a great weekend!
