Belmopan, Belize, January 17, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Caves Branch Jungle and Adventure Lodge in Belize, Central America, is offering a pair of cheese making courses over the latter half of the month of January. These courses are designed for the home cheese maker and for anyone considering small-scale commercial cheese production. The mantra of Caves Branch is that with basic kitchen equipment and as little as four ingredients, students will be able to make hundreds of exquisite cheese types. In order to participate, interested travelers may purchase one of their Cheese Making Adventure Packages
. The packages include a 5-night stay at the lodge, meals, a day’s worth of tours, 3 days of cheese making instruction and full access to the facilities around the resort, including the pools, hot tub, and botanical gardens.
Travelers may choose from either of the two courses, depending on their interests:
Cheeses of Italy (January 17th - 22nd, 2013)
This course explores classic Italian cheeses and how to make them. Italy has been a center of cheese production for well over 4,000 years, and some of the world's best known and loved cheeses hail from the Italian Peninsula, Sicily, and Sardinia.
Cheeses from Around the World (January 24th - 29th, 2013)
This course delves into cheese types from around the world, including some fascinating Latin American cheeses. Latin American cheeses are little known in North America, but demand for these cheeses is on the rise due to expanded interest in the cuisine of this region.
Interested travelers can visit their dedicated cheesemaking site for more information on the upcoming cheese making courses and how to book one of their packages. However, there are other cheese making courses to anticipate in the coming months for those unable to make it for either of these two events,
