    Default Lebanon cooks 10 tonnes of hummus in order to beat Israel's record

    300 Lebanese chefs set a world record when they concocted more than ten tonnes of hummus this weekend in a bid to beat their rival Israel's attempts in their long running hummus war.

    That easily doubled the previous record of about four tonnes set in January in a town near Jerusalem.
    The bowl of Biblical proportions was made with seven tonnes of boiled chickpeas, two tonnes of tahini and 700kg of olive oil – equivalent to nearly 1million olives.
    Many hands: It’s hard work
    Hats off: Olive oil and tahini are key ingredients

    It was all mixed together in a giant vessel which itself claimed the record for the largest earthenware dish.
    Lebanon accuses Israel of stealing traditional Arab dishes like hummus and marketing them worldwide as Israeli – costing Lebanese businesses hundreds of millions of pounds.
    Stirring achievement: Some of the 300 chefs get busy

    Lebanon is demanding approval from the European Union to register hummus as a national dish – as feta cheese is for Greece.
    But Israeli Shooky Galili, whose blog carries the slogan ‘give chickpeas a chance’, said: ‘Trying to make a copyright claim over hummus is like claiming for the rights to bread or wine. Nobody owns it.’

    I think I need to go to bed. I just read the title to the thread as: Lesbian cooks 10 tonnes of human's in order to beat Israel's record.

    I clicked anyway.

    ^^LOL!

    I wonder if they now have to make the world's largest pita bread to go with it?
