Nuts with Macis
Nutmeg, typical of Indonesia. Everyone knows its warm and intense aroma conferred by the high content of essential oils. The mace instead is the husk of nutmeg (the membrane that covers the classic walnut); less known but more valuable. Its aroma and its warm fragrance are a must try. In cooking: a pinch of finely grated walnut goes well with béchamel, eggs, boiled potatoes, fresh and stuffed pasta. Mace is used mainly for the preparation of pies, focaccia and pate. Do not overlook its use in sweet cakes and cheese dishes.
