Talented Mexican chef Alejandro Kuri thought the seminar “Rediscovering United States Cheeses” within the hotels Grand Mayan Nuevo Vallarta and The Westin Resort & Spa in Puerto Vallarta.

The two sessions were attended by many professionals in the food industry, including executive chefs, suppliers, retailers and managers of the hotel and restaurant industries; who were able to get acquainted with the variety of cheeses from our northern neighbor, as well as new techniques and market trends.

The seminar was organized by the US Dairy Export Council, an association that represents producers, retailers and exporters of dairy products in the United States. At the end of the session, attendees enjoyed a cheese tasting.

“United States has a wide variety of cheeses. There are 600 types, including artisanal cheeses with more than 10 years of fermentation. People tend to think of United States only as a producer of processed cheese but as a matter of fact this sector of the gastronomy is very rich in that country”, highlighted Alejandro Kuri for Vallarta Lifestyles.

Kuri will continue on teaching this seminar in other cities in Mexico such as Los Cabos, La Paz, Toluca and Querétaro.
