To say nothing of the extent to which culinary dishes were of particular interest to all attendees for being nutritious and appetizing when it comes to the ingredients’ rich flavors.
On this occasion, the Ambassador of Morocco, Mr. Abdelfattah Lebbar, made a historical reminder of the different civilizations that had forged the Moroccan identity through ages, taking the example of Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Jews and Arabs, Romans and Andalusians, Sub-Saharan Africans , etc , highlighting the areas of convergence between both the Moroccan and Mexican cultures.
Caftans are deeply rooted in the culture of Morocco, as well as its history and heritage. Its features definitely symbolize royalty and nobility. Indeed, Caftans are worthy to be admired by different populations throughout the world.
