Do you guys know what type of melting cheese Belizeans seem to use for their Johnny cakes? I noticed the cheese was a white-yellow colored cheese with arabic writing on a blue wrapper. Anyone know the name of this type of cheese? Thanks!

The cheese I found most of the Local Chefs use is referred to as 'Dutch Cheese'...It is mostly white with a light yellow tint....Has a great flavor reminiscent of a Romano/Parmesan blend.....However, it comes in wedges or whole rounds with a red wax wrap....Keep in mind not all red wax wrap cheese is Dutch Cheese... I use it every now and then to cook with it....The texture is firm and the flavor is strong.....Hope this helps.....It's great in Tacos, Johnny Cakes, Veggie wraps. Of course Johnny Cakes have many variations, here and across the globe.....

Just don't use the Mennonite cheese you need a blow torch to melt it.

Any idea what the blue wrapper for the cheese could be? Or does "dutch cheese" have an arabic variant? Thanks! Might not even be used in johnny cakes. Lol... we found it in one of the supermarkets and the wife's been craving it since. Maybe another excuse to come back!

The "dutch" cheese to which you refer is Gouda.

I'm not very sure if you would use the Gouda if you knew that in the meantime it's produced completely denaturalized and then going on this long travel to Central America? There are delicous and natural cheeses produced in Belize by Ian Anderson from Caves Branch lodge: Belize milk from the surrounding Menonite communities, no chemicals, daily natural treatment and great tastes and you can get it young or ripened in many flavors: Parmesan, Spressa, Brie, Camembert and many more. It was an amazing huge surprise for me to find this treasure in Belize - I'm a real cheese lover :-)

Diane I thought the same thing....at first...However, I found the two cheeses are completely different....The Dutch cheese can be found at Marina's as it is a local product....Different texture and flavor....But yes looks a little like wrapped Gouda...No Netting...Hope this helps....
