One of the first things a visitor to Hawaii notices upon their arrival at the airport or first stop at any convenience store are the huge displays of macadamia nut products, such as gift packs of dry roasted nuts, chocolate covered nuts and macadamia nut brittle. The selection is almost endless and the prices are amazing, less than half of what you would pay on the mainland for the same items.
How is this possible? Well, the answer is very simple. Hawaii is the macadamia nut capital of the world, growing 90% of the world's macadamia nuts.
Beautifully illustrated, this book contains a number of Macadamia Nut recipes that are sure to please. Aloha!
