The town of Crevillent expects to see their name in the Guinness Book of Records shortly after local company Ortola claimed to have created the world’s largest hamburger.
Hundreds of people packed the Parc Nou de la Alfombera to witness the painstaking creation of the 466-kilo burger. It measured 180 cm in diameter, was 24 cm thick and took over 14 hours to prepare and cook.
Judges from the Guinness Book of Records were also present to measure and weigh the burger and the day formed part of the 50th anniversary of the Moors and Christians celebrations in the town, with music, parades, street bars and food stalls aptly serving up, that’s right; hamburgers!
After officials had made all of their assessments, the burger was then quickly served up and enjoyed by the hundreds of attendees. A period of two weeks will pass before an official announcement is given as to whether or not the record has been achieved, however the creators of the giant burger believe that they have done it.
