Last month Croatia set the Guinness World Record for the world’s longest sarma when a whopping 1,320-metre sarma was made at the Zeljarijada festival in Vidovec in the northern Croatian Varaždin County.
Now Bosnia and Herzegovina has joined in on the act. In the city of Tuzla today a huge meat burek, weighing 650 kilograms was revealed which they hope will earn them a place in the Guinness Book of Records.
Besides the massive burek, they also produced a gigantic portion of ćevapi, 1,500 pieces on a huge lepinja. They also hope that makes the Guinness Book of Records also.
“The dimension of the burek is 6 meters x 6 meters. 14 people took part in preparing it with the pastry measuring 1,500 meters in length,” Omer Isović, one of the organizers of the Tuzla Gastro Show.
The measurements of the Burek will be sent to the Guinness World Records headquarters for confirmation that it was indeed the world’s largest.
