    Well, lard is pork fat.
    Yeah, I know. I just wasn't clear if she meant lard or something like bacon grease or melted fatback or something, whether it was rendered and whether it was bringing a porky flavor.

    Is it a yeast bread or some other sort of leavening? What is the texture of the bread part like - more like an english muffin or like a buttermilk biscuit?

    Do you see the bread here? No information but possibly a clue that might help if we know what it looks like ....

    Do you know if it is baked in an oven or done in frypans?

    I found something similar-I'm playing with words on dogpile so it may take time if the recipe is out there.

    It looks more like a pita or naan type of bread. I have been searching also, and I hope that someone finds it, because it looks good, and I am always interested in trying breads from other countries.

    I have also tried searches for Spanish and Portugese Bread as they have had a large influence in Peru's culture. Hopefully some one can find it as I can't. I wonder if the shape of it has anything to do with its' name.
    I am interested now and would like to try it too.

    I looked at those, and it doesn't appear that any have this recipe.

    Maybe it's a national secret. icon_lol.gif

    My guess is that Chuta or Pan Chuta is not the more common name.

    Here are some more links that might help ...

    I've been searching for it too since this thread went up, I even ran 'chuta' through a translator to see if that would give any clues (it means shoots in Spanish and kicks in Portuguese) but that didn't help much in the search. Hope someone finds a recipe, I'd like to try it as well.

    No, that's the name. I'd guess the "chuta" part is indigenous (Quechua) in origin, but that's just my guess. Not flat like naan. (The ones in the sacks, not the giant ones on the table, they are pan de oropesa, I think.) Some of the tourism websites say it is baked in ovens fired by eucalyptus wood, fwtw.


    I vote someone just call the Cusco Visitors Bureau monday morning. icon_eek.gif

    I have a Spanish dictionary (not Spanish to English, but one that defines Spanish words in Spanish), and it said as an adjective, "chuto" or "chuta" is a Latin American equivalent for "rabon," which means "having had the tail removed."
    I don't think this gets us any forwarder, though. icon_lol.gif

    And here is yet another translation which says chuta is a Quechua word meaning "pulled" ....

    I've been also checking links with information on the Andes with no success.

    It just occurred to me that it might be a Quechua word. That makes a lot more sense.
    No one seems to want to give out the recipe, though.

    I called the Peruvian embassy but the person they said could probably give me the recipe wasn't there.

    I just also emailed the Peru bureau of tourism. Hopefully they'll c ome through.
