And the largest Tabbooleh dish goes to…

The world’s largest Tabbouleh dish was prepared today in Saifi Market, Beirut, and earned a new entry in the Guinness book world records, in a giant effort to confirm that “Hummus and Tabbouleh are Lebanese”

Tabbooleh world record

Was it fun? Totally.

Was it a priority? I would have preferred to have the public transportation improved, however, a big tabbooleh plate does not prevent the authorities rfom fixing our roads.

Was it worth it? A new entry in the Guiness book, walaw! And economical gain, resulting from the branding of Hummus and Tabbouleh as Lebanese.

TheCedarTree considers this food contest ridiculous, Rami thinks it is habal, Maya that it is pointless, adiamondinsunlight bizarre.
What did Fady Abboud, president of The Association of Lebanese Industrialists have to say?

“The record-breaking attempt hopes to lay claims to the dishes’ cultural heritage and dispel international belief that the dishes are Greek or Israeli in origin. A lot of countries are trying to dishonestly appropriate these dishes and this in turn results in colossal losses.”

ShowerThe bad:

  1. The sad “منرفض نحنا نموت” song which has no place during this celebration. Even the Tabbouleh song would be more appropriate… or maybe not
  2. The retarded people who refused to stop smoking in a closed space.

250 young Chef Apprentices celebrating their feat:

Did that huge plate break any record?
