Bolivian Faux Rabbit ( Conejo)

missclaudy | Sep 25, 2006 05:31 PM

When I was travelling in Bolivia, many years ago, I was served (dare I say it )(vegetarians and children look away) Guinea Pig , which was called by the Quechua woman who served it to me, "Rabbit of the Andes" in Spanish. It tasted like( you guessed it, chicken, was very bony and quite tasty. I saw them butterflyed and roasted on sticks all over Bolivia too. Any chance that's what you had as faux rabbit? The little critters (guinea pigs, not rabbits) were running around underfoot, making that noise guinea pigs make, all over her house, which is common in Quechua and Ayamara households in Latin America. Really fun and amazing!!!!!
