Israeli chefs go for grilled chicken innards record
Tuesday 01 December 2009
Israeli chefs on Monday attempted to create a new world record for the largest ever "Jerusalem mix," a local specialty of grilled meats.
They should have no trouble getting their concoction of 200 kilogrammes (440 pounds) of mostly chicken innards recognised by the Guinness book of records - no one has ever attempted it before.
"It's the most Jerusalem of dishes, a mixture of all the peoples and cultures, a mixture of peace and unity," said organizer Noam Shaked.
The dish, "meurav yerushalmi" or Jerusalem mix, is a local favourite, made by grilling a mixture of chicken pieces, chicken livers, hearts and kidneys with thinly sliced onions and topped with spices.
A group of nine chefs gathered at Jerusalem's main market to create the dish, slathering the huge pile of meat onto a giant pita bread surrounded by bunches of parsley.
"We are trying to make a Guinness World Record," said Shaked. "We are the first but we have made the amount needed to be considered for a Guinness record."
A lawyer was on hand to verify the amounts, he said.
