Guinness world record for largest baklava broken in Ankara
A group of chefs in Turkey claimed a world record for the largest baklava with a giant tray of the pastry dessert weighing over half a ton.
The giant baklava was presented at a 'Gastronomy Summit' in Ankara.
Mehmet Kanbur, who led the group of 14 chefs and is also the head of Turkey’s Mado patisserie chain, said the baklava weighed 518 kilos - more than doubling the previous record - and had been in the works for six months.
The feat was confirmed by a Guinness World Records official who monitored the event by video link, Anadolu Agency reported.
