On this National Food Day September 4th is National Macadamia Nut Day. I went ahead and found a lot of recipes for those interesting in learning to make foods with macadamia nuts which are super buttery in their flavor, and also rather expensive too.
September 4th is also St. Ida of Herzfeld, patron of brides.
Other Interesting tidbits to notes on this September 4th:
