Lebanon has claimed the latest victory in the continuing battle with Israel over which country can make the largest serving of hummus.



Some 300 chefs set the new record, creating a huge 10-tonne vat of the chickpea-based dip in Fanar.



That more than doubles the previous record of about four tonnes, set in January by cooks in the Israeli-Arab town of Abu Ghosh near Jerusalem.



Both Lebanese and Israelis claim hummus as a national dish.



A Guinness World Records adjudicator confirmed that Lebanon now held the record.

They made the worlds largest serving of falafel at the same time as the world largest serving of hummus!







11,300+ pounds of falafel.





Man, that's a lot of falafel!

I bet you could just dive right in, and eat them all, Mr F! I'll let you have a quick dip into my hummus as well though, if you save me a few falafel....!

Hmmm, we could have this as a small side dish to the falafel and hummus, perhaps?

I hate these "world largest" food concoctions. I can't help but think most of it is going to waste.



And a lot of these cheat - like the world's biggest smore, should have to be one smore, not 50,000 smores laid out next to each other.

Ha! I was fully aware of the double entendre. Can't beat a bit of harmless flirting on forums, can you?!

Agree! Not my fave thing. Its too minty and leafy. Yes I like healthy stuff but that takes it a bit too "healthy" for me.
