Peruvian Potato Breads?

October 11, 2012 - 6:43am -- kitcar

Hi All!
I was recently in Peru and tried the most amazing potato bread at a restaurant (The restaurant was called "Chicha por Gastón Acurio") - I've been trying to recreate it every since without any luck. Anyone know if there is such thing as a "traditional" Peruvian potato bread receipe, or was this just the creation of the restaurant's baker?

Peruvian Bread?

August 7, 2009 - 10:17am -- mommajack

Hi Everyone,

I'm a newbie and was wondering if any of you had some recipes for peruvian breads?  Specifically andean/highland breads?

In my travels I have tasted some yummy stuff and one of the best breakfasts I have ever had was

pan taparaco con nata miel and cafe con leche

basically a really hard crunchy toast ( i think it is twice baked) loaded with the solids that form when you heat raw milk and honey and a cup of coffee with milk.


i dream about this bread and can't seem to find a recipe for it.
