See the world's longest California maki roll
Sunday 12 September 2010
On September 6, in honor of the first day back to school at USA's University of Massachusetts-Amherst (UMass) 300+ volunteers rolled 422 ft (128m) of maki goodness.
The UMass community activity, headed by celebrity chef Jet Tila (Wazuzu, Las Vegas), broke the world's record previously held by 500 students and faculty at the University of California, Berkeley (330ft/100m).
If you want to beat UMass's record it will take more than:
650 sheets of nori (seaweed)
200 pounds (90.70kg) of sushi rice
200 pounds (90.70kg) of imitation crab
100 pounds (45.35kg) of avocado
100 pounds (45.35kg) of cucumber
Two pounds (0.90kg) of sesame seeds
Five gallons (18.92L) of soy sauce
Six pounds (2.72kg) of wasabi (Japanese horseradish)
