Macademics Equals Nuts Worth Studying

Macademics is more than a catchy marketing name, it's the study of some of the best macadamia nuts available in North America. The 74-year-old Brazilian company has recently set up a local sales office in Belvedere to distribute its fleur de sel-kissed macadamias nationally. Let's just say that, unlike the Hawaiian macadamias that arrive drenched in chocolate, these nuts don't need any extra help.

Buttery isn't the first word that comes to mind when describing nuts, but these have such a creamy texture that it's not a stretch to think there might be an invisible pat of the stuff hiding inside. Maybe that's why the trees take 12 years to mature. Salted nuts can be sodium overload in general but there is just enough salt here to bring out that natural flavor and not be the top note.

Pouches or cans of Macademics are easily found online or at Buyer's Best Friend.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
