Sounds like an interesting dish. Recipe? or better, a redaction?

It sounds somewhat similar to a dish that Master Cariadoc mentioned recently which was layers of flat bread with something in-brtween which was backed underneath a roasting chicken so the drippings fell on to it.

What is a good definition of "olla podrida"? From our earlier discussions it just seemed like a dish with everything you could think of, piled together. Maybe this isn't a representative series of recipes. Or maybe these aren't the same dish.
