Macadamia and salted caramel raw slice

Aunty Dale Chapman is an Indigenous woman born in Dirranbandi in south west Queensland on Yuwaalaraay and Kooma tribal lands. She has kindly created two delicious macadamia recipes for us to share this NAIDOC week including this raw macadamia slice (pictured) and a special macadamia dukkah.

“I have lived and worked on Kabi Kabi land, known as the Sunshine Coast, since 1976. My totems are the emu which was passed to me through my grandfather's family and the possum passed through my grandmother’s family."

Aunty Dale has been in the food business for twenty years and you can learn more about her and her business at
