Food at the ARTS Carnival in Barranquilla

Food was wonderful at the Arts Carnival in my hometown. We were served BOLLOS DE MAZORCA or corn cakes, our way, cooked in cornhusks to a wonderful, slightly sweet and yet savory taste and topped with smoked salmon, BUTIFARRA our own peppery sausage served with BOLLO LIMPIO another kind of white corn cake.

More recipes in my book Secrets of Colombian Cooking.
Outside there were all sorts of food being sold on carts but we chose to have OBLEAS, which are made of 8 inch round cookies made of the same light mix of the mass´communion cookie, and filled with DULCE DE LECHE and eaten immediately so the cookie remains crisp.
Have a look and remember….
