)-- Erin Meagher, founder and Chief Coconut at Kelapo Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, began her 2012 speaking tour at the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Pasadena, CA on Thursday. Meagher, who guest lectured at the school last year, works to educate future culinary professionals about the extraordinary benefits of cooking and baking with coconut oil. The prestigious Pasadena cooking school welcomed Meagher back after a successful educational program last spring.
Meagher's visit to the Los Angeles area coincided with the Natural Products Expo West, where Kelapo presented its latest innovative premium extra virgin coconut oil cooking products to over 60,000 industry professionals. The West Coast was finally introduced to Kelapo's newest and most popular product, Kelapo Pre-measured Coconut Oil Baking Sticks, a unique consumer good that has garnered lots of attention from the press. Recently, a panel of industry journalists at the Winter Fancy Food Show named Kelapo as one of the Top 5 Food Trends of 2012.
Show attendees were treated to delicious foods prepared with Kelapo Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, including a festive Irish Cream Cake, vegan Apricot Rice Pilaf, and a creative Quinoa Salad, whipped up by the advanced student chefs at the Le Cordon Bleu.
Kelapo Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is an excellent replacement for butter and other oils in cooking and baking. Kelapo Extra Virgin Coconut Oil products are 100% organic, unrefined, and Fair Trade Certified.
