4/27/2004: Record sandwich



There's some other Cellar talk of weighty Americans but this one is property of the Mexicans. It's the world's biggest sandwich, at 3.5 meters by 3.5 meters. It's ham, cheese, mayonnaise and lettuce.



They built it...





...and then they busted it up and served it and ate it.



jaguar  Tuesday Apr 27 01:24 PM

That's very orange cheese and where the HELL did they find an oven big enough for the slabs of bread.

MMMM.....gubmint cheese



Leah  Tuesday Apr 27 06:07 PM

Can someone please cut my crust off.

I know, I know, eat your crust and your hair will curl. It's NOT true, I've always eaten my crusts and I have dead straight hair. I think my mum lied when I was a little girl.



Pearcie (AUS)  Tuesday Apr 27 08:07 PM

LOL! Thats gold Leah! I was fed the same story by my Mum when I was a kid, but I never ate my crusts and I don't know many people (white people) with curlier hair than mine.

So that settles it, there's no truth to that 'saying' and there probably never was.



Leah  Tuesday Apr 27 08:11 PM

I know DP, I'm jealous of your hair. It's just not fair.



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Apr 27 08:34 PM

Don't be jealous, your hair is beautiful.



Leah  Tuesday Apr 27 08:40 PM

Gosh thanks Bruce . but I would rather naturally curly hair like Pearcie, he's got curls that would make any girl with straight hair jealous.



Pearcie (AUS)  Tuesday Apr 27 08:45 PM

Shux



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Apr 27 08:47 PM

Aw shaddap and eat your crust. You people with hair make me sick.:p



Leah  Tuesday Apr 27 08:47 PM

Don't go getting a big head now Pearcie. It's just the curls we like.



Pearcie (AUS)  Tuesday Apr 27 09:51 PM

Ouch! pulled back down to reality with a thud.

Thanx for keeping my massive ego in check Leah



NOTE: Sarcasm used in this post.



elSicomoro  Tuesday Apr 27 10:02 PM

Crazy ass Aussies...




Leah  Tuesday Apr 27 10:24 PM

And proud of it.:p



Bullitt  Tuesday Apr 27 10:41 PM

Eww...

Ugh.. wouldnt that mayo taste terrible after bein in the sun for so long ( in mexico..) ?



chrisinhouston  Wednesday Apr 28 10:28 AM

Ok, can somebody explain why this even happened? Ham and cheese isn't much of a Mexican delicacy, how about the world's largest enchilada?

And where do you find an oven big enough to bake bread the size of a mattress? Or was it just 2 slices off of the world's largest loaf of bread?

Mexico is plagued with corrupt politicians and police, poverty, drugs, illiteracy and if it weren't for the tourist trade at the resorts and islands they wouldn't have much of anything but dammit, they made the world's biggest ham and cheese sandwhich! Now that's something!

xant  Wednesday Apr 28 12:25 PM

My only question is how will they eat it? That bread looks like it's a foot thick. Not exactly bite-sized, is it?



wolf  Wednesday Apr 28 01:10 PM

they'll eat it the same way the people on the Land of the Giants TV show did ... a handful at a time. Actually it's not that much different from the "nibble around the edges" technique that is sometimes required on a normally sized hoagie.

Nerollss  Wednesday Apr 28 07:30 PM

This is just too much calories for me. I can't handle this.



dar512  Thursday Apr 29 09:48 AM

Ham sandwich. Booooring. Couldn't they have done a more interesting sandwich? Pastrami, maybe.



elSicomoro  Thursday Apr 29 06:15 PM

"Who wants a free cheese sandwich?!"

There at it again!

Algeria cooks up couscous record
A catering college in the northern Algerian city of Tizi Ouzou has cooked the world's largest couscous.
The traditional north African dish was made from 2,600 kilos (5,732 lb) of dry semolina, meat from 100 sheep and 1.5 tonnes of vegetables.

Representatives from the Guinness Book of Records attended the event to ensure it complied with the rules.

The feat by both teachers and students surpasses the previous record - not listed by Guinness - in Tunisia.

It was made using a custom-made couscoussier, or traditional cooking pot for couscous, which was 14ft (4.3m) wide and 26ft (8m) deep.

A three-tonne stove was also built to cook the couscous.

Organisers said the finished dish could feed 22,000 guests.
