    I just returned from Peru. While there we were introduced to a flat bread called 'Pan Chuta'. I have searched the web for days and cannot find the recipe. Has anyone else heard of it and can someone provide the recipe.

    I appreciate any help I can get.

    You might have good luck posting this on the South America forum.

    Thanks. I have tried that site but can't find anything. The bread was sold throughout Peru. I can't believe I can't find the recipe.

    Thanks again

    What they meant is to post a request there, as some of those folks may have other resources. I've posted for you. I googled and found very few references to it. It sounds interesting, and hopefully someone will be able to help.

    What was the bread like?

    pizza crust?
    italian bread?
    pancakes or crepes?

    I don't remember having this particular bread in Peru, but I have had very good bread there.
    I have a couple of Peruvian sites bookmarked, but there's nothing similar listed. Are you sure the name is right?

    Yeah, that's the right name. It's wheat bread, not corn. Someone told me it uses pork fat? I think maybe they meant lard.

    This blog has some good photos, but no clue on the preparation.

    Well, lard is pork fat. icon_lol.gif
    I had a sandwich on that bread in Lima, too, but I don't know any more about it.

    It was more like a pizza crust in shape but tasted like a sweet bread. Our guide bought it several times at different towns.

    Yes the name is right as per the peruvian guide we had. She called and spelled it out, 'pan chuta' The pictures show exactly how it looks when cooked.

    Thanks for thinking of adding these pictures
