Carnaval Barranquilla in Colombia? La comida?

Hey! I am doing a project for my grade 12 spanish class. It's on the Carnaval de Barranquilla. My section is the food, I need a little bit of information regarding the food but mostly recipes. I have done some research but I can't read fully spanish speaking websites yet, so the information is pretty scarce.
