Peru In Search of Another Guinness Record: The Largest Ceviche in the World

leave a comment »

ceviche2This Sunday December 7, more than 450 chefs in Lima, Peru will convene to prepare the world’s largest ceviche in the world and look to gain its leadership back from 2004 as Peru’s largest newspaper El Comercio reports.

Ingredients will include 5 tons of fish, 3 tons of lemon, 2 1/2 tons of onion, 440 lbs. of salt and 440 lbs. of Peruvian chilli.

In 2004, Peru won the Guinness world record after preparing 9,127 lbs. of ceviche.

Ceviche is one of Peru’s cuisine flagship dishes largely known around the world — and please make sure restaurants serve you on a plate like this, not a glass (!) and with large-sized corn, and sweet potato on the side. That’s a good tip to keep in mind to make sure you are eating a real ceviche! Bon apetit.
