Lisbon: Portuguese chefs have created a world record as they cooked the world’s largest omelette on Saturday in a record attempt at an annual three day festival that took place in the town of Ferreira do Zêzere, in the central city of Santarém, the officials of Guinness world records stated on organization’s official website.
According to details, 145,000 free range eggs were poured into an enormous impressive pan measuring over 10metres in diameter and weighing 9458lbs along with 220lbs of butter and 880lbs of oil.
For almost six hours the chefs continued to scrap and pulled the mixture in observation of Head chef Pedro Mendes. The previous record was a 4.401 tonnes (9,702 lb 8 oz) omelette cooked up in Ankara in Turkey in October 2010. A whopping 6.466 tonnes (14, 225 lbs. 6 oz.) omelette, this time, broke the previous benchmark by quite some margin.
The event was organized by local council which aimed to bring together local people that may normally live or work outside of Portugal who are returning for the summer to visit friends and relatives.
