Tulalip Resort Casino to feature locally grown hazelnuts

The resort wanted to put a focus on meals created with the nut.

SILVANA — Restaurants at the Tulalip Resort Casino have been incorporating hazelnuts in meals this month from Hazel Blue Acres, a farm owned by Karen and Spencer Fuentes along the Stillaguamish River near Silvana.

The resort wanted to put a focus on meals created with the nut. Quick note: Northwest orchardists call the nuts filberts, but hazelnut is the British term and the nuts are often marketed that way.

The Fuentes family has worked for nearly 10 years to get their filbert trees to the point of providing top-quality, sought-after hazelnuts, agreed the chefs at Tulalip.

At Blackfish Grill, one can order maple-glazed pork belly with toasted Hazel Blue hazelnuts and finish with chef Nikoi Nakamura’s coffee and hazelnut brownie. At Cedars Cafe, chef Brent Clarkson offers blue cheese stuffed, hazelnut crusted chicken breast, along with chocolate hazelnut pudding topped with Hazel Blue nuts.

The Carvery offers a toasted hazelnut chicken salad, Eagles Buffet will serve its signature green beans with toasted hazelnuts and the Draft Sports Bar features a hazelnut waffle with pork tenderloin. Even Blazing Paddles Pizza is in on the use of Hazel Blue nuts. The shop will offer a hazelnut dessert pizza.
