A Quick Overview Of Puchero
A ‘puchero’ *(m) is one of several Spanish words for a ‘stew’. See also ‘cocido’, ‘estofado’, and ‘guisado’.
This is a Spanish word, so you pronounce each syllable. The stress is on the penultimate (second to last) syllable.
- The 'u' is pronounced closest to the 'u' in 'scuba' - which is to say it has more of the 'oo' in ‘food’ than the English 'u' sound in 'cut;
- The Spanish ‘ch’ sounds much like the English ‘ch’ in ‘chip, or more accurately, the ‘-tch’ in ‘catch’ – make sure you know whether the word is Spanish or Italian – this rule does not hold in Italian;
- The 'e' sounds like the 'e' in 'egg';
- The 'o' is pronounced closest to the 'o' in 'hot'.
The French word for stew is ‘ragoût’, and the Italian is ‘stufato’.
