A New Record for World’s Largest Meatball
It may be a publicity stunt, but it sure is one spicy meatball. When I see it, my only instinct is to pick the metaball up (if I could lift a 110 pound meatball) and throw it at the first person I can find wearing a tux.
CANCÚN, Mexico — To promote their upcoming film “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”, Sony Pictures asked the chefs at The Ritz Carlton to cook a 109 lbs (49.5 kg) meatball-setting the world record for the largest meatball.
after the record for the largest meatball was confirmed, the meatball was cut up into normal-sized portions and served to everyone at the record-setting event.
The Hotel’s Executive chef Rainer Zinngrebe along with banquet chef Aldo Novoa accomplished the appetizing feat, surpassing a previous Guinness world record for the largest meatball set in 2008 that stood at 32.93 kg, or 72 lbs., 9 oz.
