Today’s post is going to be a little bit different, because today, we are going to do a product review! Yay! We’ve done restaurant reviews before but never a product, so hopefully you all will enjoy.
The product we are going to be talking about today is Maison Orphee‘s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil.
This company has several lines of top-quality oils, mustards and vinegars, as well as sea salts. Both Brit and I doing double majors in French and Foods and Nutrition, and Maison Orphee being a french food company, it is the perfect match for us. It’s like they know our souls… 😉 .
While we’ve never had the opportunity to try out many of their really cool oils and vinegars (toasted sesame oil say whaaa?) we have tried their mustard, and of course, their coconut oil!
Seriously, guys, this stuff is so good! We’ve used several different varieties of coconut oil, and Maison Orphee’s is hands-down our favourite! It is so smooth and creamy, and adds such wonderful flavours and aromas to whatever you use it in!
We love to use it in stir-frys, curries, chocolate desserts… the list goes on! Here’s a round-up of a few of the recipes on the blog that we’ve used coconut oil in!
We would also like to point out the healthy benefits of coconut oil. For years people have shied away from this oil, because it is quite high in saturated fat. However, new studies have been done showing that the saturated fat in coconut oil is different from those in butter, margarine and animal fat.

Anyways, if you have never used coconut oil before, we encourage you to try it out! And when you’re staring at the shelf trying to decide between the excessive number of brands to choose from, we recommend Maison Orphee, we promise you won’t be disappointed!
Have you ever used coconut oil before? What’s your favourite brand?
