The celebration season that sweeps Australia in spring and summer has begun. It’s time to start planning dishes that will impress guests but won’t leave you slaving in the kitchen for hours, missing all the fun. There is one particular ingredient that ticks many of the celebration season boxes, is delicious, crowd pleasing and can elevate any occasion to something special – the macadamia.
Macadamias are our native nut, evolving in the east coast rainforests of Australia around 60 million years ago. Renowned for their buttery texture, soft crunch and unparalleled versatility, macadamias bring a touch of gourmet sophistication to every dish. From savoury to sweet, dairy free to gluten free, this superfood promises to transform any recipe into something special.

In just 10 minutes you’ll have a show-stopping decadence ready to share – rich, creamy triple brie adorned with spicy-sweet macadamias in an aromatic glaze, perfect for scooping up with chargrilled Turkish bread, sourdough or crackers.
