An Italian restaurant in London has made an attempt at the Guiness World Record for ‘Giantipasti’ with an antipasti board featuring a mouth-watering array of 62,100g of ingredients!
The board, which includes 16,000g of cured meats, 13,000g of cheese and 13,000g of vegetables, stretches the length of the entire restaurant at a whopping ten metres long, and is looking to set the first ever record of its kind.
It took a dedicated team three hours to build the feast for guests to enjoy, with world renowned chef Theo Randall chipping in to etch his name in the record books.
Randall said: “It was a great experience to work with ASK Italian’s team to create ‘Giantipasti’. Antipasti has an important role in Italy to draw people together, prompting interaction through the act of sharing and bringing the conversation to life. Giantipasti is the perfect way for ASK Italian to bring this concept to life.”
The board was laid with carefully selected ingredients from ASK Italian’s four new antipasti boards, leaving guests spoilt for choice with a range of smoked prosciutto, rosemary and sea salt bread, fioncchiona salami and a variety of Italian cheeses.
ASK’s new autumn menu has been devised to celebrate the ‘Joy of Italian Eating’; featuring beautifully crafted dishes, sharers and complimenting their 100 per cent Italian wine list.
Corinne Prior, Marketing Director of ASK Italian commented: “We are so excited to have been the first people to ever attempt a world record sized antipasti. Sharing a ‘Giantipasti’ is a perfect example of our desire to bring people together with food just like the Italians do. We look forward to welcoming everyone to try the new menu.”
