  Largest matzo ball: Tucson Jewish Food Festival

  Saturday, August 8, 2009
 Largest Matzah Ball-world record set by Noah's Ark Original Deli

  NEW YORK CITY, USA -- Noah's Ark Original Deli (owner Noam Sokolov) baked a Matzah Ball which weighs in at 267 pounds, is 29.2 inches across and sets the world record for the Largest Matzah Ball.

   The Largest Matzah Ball stood three feet high and required an army of hens working around the clock to provide 1,000 eggs, combined with 80 pounds of margarine, with 200 pounds of matzo meal and 20 pounds of chicken base.

   The massive round mound of matzo was trucked with police escort from a specially designed 100-gallon kettle in New Jersey where it slow boiled for two days by a team of a dozen chefs before being lifted by a custom designed "soup sling" by two dozen helpers into a large protective crate before being transported in a 24-foot freightliner through the streets of New York to its ultimate unveiling and measurement for the world record.

   Noam Sokolow, owner of Noah's Ark, who directed the planning and "deli development" of the Largest Matzah Ball, said, "This culinary caper really was all about making the impossible possible. Yes, Noah's Ark has been voted the best corned beef sandwich in the United States, but now we've created something that helps more than an appetite ... it helps draw attention to at-risk children."

   It was all to celebrate an upcoming basketball game, which will be played on October 18 at Madison Square Garden between the New York Knicks and Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv benefiting Migdal Ohr, the world's largest orphanage in Northern Israel and home to nearly 7,000 orphaned, impoverished, underprivileged and new immigrant children.

   "What's better than this in New York City?" asked Noam Sokolow, owner of Noah's Ark Deli and an organizer of the event. "Big Apple, big matzo ball, big basketball game."

    The Largest Matzah Ball was cut into smaller pieces and doled out to diners at the Good Companions Senior Center on Madison Street, a provider of low-cost kosher lunches and fitness programs.
