PAN DE CAMPO

BREAD

The bread was born in the south of Texas at the end of the XIX century. It created ... a situation. Cowboys, rushing and grazing for months, did not often have the opportunity to get fresh bread. They came up with a simple bread, which can be baked over a fire or in special containers, covered with a lid with an embers on top, called the Dutch oven.

The bread is flat, crunchy on the outside, the soft inside tastes with everything - dried meat, fried bacon, scrambled eggs, goulash in every form ...

My grandma was baking Pan de Campo at home, in a cast iron skillet. Then she made a kind of nest from the towels, put bread into a special container for tortillas, which she placed in these towels. As we came from school - the bread was still warm. We got a pancake with butter and honey. I like this bread very much, I grew up on it! - says Vianney Rodriguez from Southern Texas, author of the book "Tex-Mex Slow Cooker" and "Latin Twist".

A few days ago, the annual festival in San Diego (from 1978) ended. Pan de Campo Festival, during which, among other attractions, cowboy bread was baked, cowboys presented their riding skills, played local bands, sweetened themselves, drank beer and margarita ... There were also competitions and games for children. It was a bustling, fragrant fire, joyfully ...

For those who were not in San Diego, they did not graze cattle for some time, so they did not have the opportunity to bake bread on the campfire, today the recipe for homemade Pan de Campo! Yummy!
