The 5th Let’s Chef Together event was all about Moroccan cuisine
On Thursday, November 24, the 5th Let’s Chef Together event was organized by Color Media Communications in partnership with Lidl Serbia and the Prezident Palace Belgrade Hotel, where the event took place. The Embassy of Morocco was the event’s host.
The Let’s Chef Together project is a continuation of the story started by the magazine Diplomacy&Commerce Austria to present authentic and traditional dishes from all over the world. In the presence of the diplomatic corps, media, food bloggers and other guests, we talked about the importance of food as part of the cultural and touristic identity of countries worldwide. Lidl’s products helped us to put together the ingredients of the delicious dishes prepared at the event, while the splendour of the Prezident Palace Hotel added to the delight of the event’s guests.
“Tonight, we will take you on a journey through a thousand years of my country’s history to discover its culture, music and cuisine, which roots are a unique and rich combination of Arab, Hebrew, African and especially Mediterranean influences. You will learn how to set the table, serve food and the art of entertaining in the Moroccan way, which gives people the opportunity to enjoy quality food and drink while, at the same time, sharing unforgettable moments and making lasting friendships. We want you to allow yourself to indulge in the poetry of the presented menu and the flavours and essence of our local Moroccan products that will surely make all your senses dance and flutter”, said the Moroccan Ambassador to Serbia, H.E. Mohammed Amine Belhaj, at the opening.
The guests were traditionally welcomed, just as they would be greeted as they would enter the home of a typical Moroccan family, in the traditional setting, with a serving of original Moroccan tea. Also, the guests had the opportunity to experience Morocco by watching the promotional film “Le Maroc Vu du Ciel”.

“As a partner of the Let’s Chef Together project, we can ensure that you enjoy the charms of different world cuisines using Lidl’s groceries. This week, together with the Embassy of Morocco, we have prepared Moroccan dishes that are rife with exotic spices and have intriguing flavour combinations. Lidl continues to offer its consumers the opportunity to taste the traditional cuisines of the world under the auspices of thematic weeks”, said Martina Petrović from Lidl’s Corporate Communications.
“This was yet another fantastic gourmet night! After getting acquainted with Egyptian cuisine, last night we had the opportunity to try specialities with the Moroccan geographical signature. The Let’s Chef Together project gave us an incredible opportunity to get to know our tastes anew and to learn something completely different about the gourmet meals of global cuisines. Once again, I would like to thank the collaborators on the project, the Lidl Company and the Color Media team, but also the entire team of the Prezident Palace Hotel. This was another validation of the famous quote ‘great minds think alike’, said Olivera Škorić, Marketing Manager of the Prezident Palace Hotel Belgrade.
A large number of dignitaries attended the event. In an informal atmosphere, the diplomatic corps, media, bloggers and influencers enjoyed the fusion of traditional and modern flavours of Morocco and the unique sounds of the country’s traditional music.
