Dad Creates 60m-Long Kebab For Son's Wedding
Just ahead of Father's Day, one dad has put all other dads to shame by creating a 60m-long kebab for his son's wedding. What a guy.
Ugur Aydin and his new wife Kubra were said to be chuffed with the meaty treat laid on by Yasar, who owns a kebab shop. I bet the guests were pretty happy about the whole thing too.
According to reports, the whopping kebab was made from minced lamb and mutton rib meat, fashioned into one enormous piece.
Speaking to local media, kebab shop owner, Yasar said: "Our family business is kebab meat and I wanted to make my boy's big day even more special, so we made a record long kebab.
"I made a 60-metre long grill as well and we cooked the kebab at once. I am very pleased about my son's wedding and the kebab we served."
But Yasar will have to try harder than that if he wants to claim the title of the world's longest kebab. According to Guinness World Records, the official longest kebab ever goes to a company called ArcelorMittal Newcastle Works, from Newcastle in South Africa.
During the company's annual 'community day' they whipped up a kebab measuring an unbelievable 2047.47 m (or 1.27 miles). Not bad, eh?
Chef Johnny Di Francesco, from 400 Gradi in Melbourne, cooked up the surprisingly normal looking pizza earlier this year; smashing the previous record of 111 different varieties of cheese on a single pizza.
Johnny told the Guinness World Records: "While the 154-cheese pizza may not have been a culinary impossibility, it was certainly a culinary challenge! We knew it was an ambitious idea, but probably more so than first anticipated.
"We also needed to be sure each individual cheese was distinct enough from the next, yet complimentary to each flavour, and could blend really well together once combined."
"The cheeses included the likes of gorgonzola, pecorino, Taleggio, aged cheddar, gouda and of course, many more!"
Sounds gouda to me. (Sorry).
