The CNTB Representative Office in Poland, in cooperation with the prestigious Polish culinary magazine KukBuk, prepared a virtual culinary workshop “Croatia, Full of Flavours” for 25 prominent Polish journalists, including representatives of the largest Polish state television TVP, the largest private television TVN, editor in chief National Geographic and National Geographic Traveler, leading editors of travel magazines such as the most read WaszaTurystyk and the portals Onet.pl, Wp.pl and Fly4Free.pl, bloggers CroLove and famous Polish gastro bloggers Krytyka Kulinarna and MintaEats.
“Thanks to new technologies, we were able to connect with different parts of Poland at the same time and promote Croatia in an innovative and interesting way as a destination with a rich and diverse culinary offer. Our guests were very happy with the idea of cooking together, and the workshop resulted in an even better knowledge of Croatia, always full of extraordinary flavours. Everyone is eagerly awaiting the summer and we hope that with the calming of the epidemiological situation, a large number of Poles will spend their summer vacation in Croatia”, said the Director of the CNTB Representative Office in Poland, Agnieszka Puszczewicz.
Due to the current pandemic situation, prominent Polish journalists prepared traditional Croatian specialties in their private kitchens, and the day before they received all the necessary ingredients to prepare Croatian specialties with their own hands: Zagorje štrukli (typical pastry of Zagorje) and Samoborske kremšnite (custard pastry). Journalists posted their work on social networks with the hashtag in Polish #ChorwacjaPełnaSmaku, which means #CroatiaFullOfFlavours”.
“This is another great promotional move for our dear Poles. All journalists who virtually participated in the workshop and cooked in their home environment under the direction of the great chef Cristina Catese prepared excellent Zagorje štrukli and Samoborske kremšnite. I am sure that Poles will come to Croatia in large numbers this year as well, and we will be ready with all the necessary health and safety measures to ensure a safe and comfortable stay as we already did last year”, said the Ambassador of the Republic of Croatia in Poland Tomislav Vidošević, who also participated in the culinary workshop and prepared Croatian specialties at the Bii Farm.
In a relaxed atmosphere, there was also discussion about Croatia’s plans for this year’s season and the current project Safe Stay in Croatia which promotes Croatia on the Polish market as a safe and desirable destination.
