Texas chef coming to celebrate Grapefruit Month
Coming soon, spirited bilingual TX chef to celebrate Grapefruit Month in show & tell segment. “It’s not bragging if it’s true,” says Blanca Aldaco, about the reddest, sweetest, juiciest grapefruit variety known to man – Texas Rio Star grapefruit.
Chef Blanca will be in Sacramento in time for February’s celebration of National Grapefruit Month and promises to be a memorable guest. She will provide information about the health, nutrition, versatility and deliciousness of Rio Star grapefruit – a kissing cousin to the legendary Ruby Red.
Blanca is founder, owner, and operator of one of the most popular and trendy Mexican food restaurants in San Antonio, Aldaco’s Mexican Cuisine. Aldaco is a native of Guadalajara, Mexico. Her name has become synonymous with authentic Mexican fare. Chef Blanca’s culinary contributions have helped bring national recognition to the Alamo City as the undisputed capital of Mexican food.
Chef Aldaco has been selected as the spokesperson to deliver the sweet news about February’s celebration of National Grapefruit Month on behalf of the growers who make up TexaSweet Citrus Marketing, a non-profit organization committed to promoting all Texas-grown citrus, including the unique, seasonal, special Rio Star variety.Rio Star is a variety, not a brand. “Even the legendary Ruby Red grapefruit doesn’t stack up to the Rio Star,” Aldaco claims.
I’ll follow up to determine your interest, or reply to this email to confirm an interview with Blanca. She has appeared on local and national television and radio programming including the Food Network and Discovery Channel.
No kitchen set? No worries. All Blanca needs is a flat surface to put together a fabulous display while informing the folks at home about the nutritional value, versatility, ease of preparation and availability of this Texas born-and-bred citrus sensation. From a Rio Star margarita, to a Texas grapefruit sun riser smoothie and just about everything in-between. Chef Aldaco will leave you and your audience inspired.
Make no mistake – Rio Star grapefruit are special. They’re just available from October through May and grow only in the southernmost tip of Texas, home of tropical breezes, warm weather and, well, the best grapefruit you’ll ever be lucky enough to taste.
