2 - we were specifically told to use coconut oil for frying...reasoning being that olive oil goes rancid when heated to high degrees. they even sell the coconut at our oulet for frying purposes. noone else seems to have heard this information....

if anyone can shed some light , i would be grateful!
Olive oil only goes rancid if it's old, stored in a high heat area for extended periods, or exposed to oxygen for months(open bottles). High heat during cooking may take away the strong olive taste, but then it wil just taste like other, less pungeant oils(vegetable). Not to be so cynical, but sounds like the coconut oil they are selling you is just another product they can get you to pay for. I guess that was cynical, after all.
