Largest cottage pie: Welwyn one tonne pie set world record
Welwyn, England -- Weighing a whopping one tonne, the colossal cottage pie made for the Good Food Channel's Monster Munchies show, was the creation of staff at The White Hart – and many of its regulars and neighbours – who spent a "mad" 24 hours creating the beast - which sets the world record for the Largest cottage pie, according to World Record Academy (www.worldrecordacademy.com).

The Guinness world record for the largest mince pie recorded was one of 1.02 tonnes (2,260 lb) and baked at Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire, UK.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest potato pie: IT weighed 5.37 tonnes (11,858 lb) and was made by the District Municipality of Carmen de la Legua Reynoso.
The beefy dish was made for the Good Food Channel's Monster Munchies show, which challenges teams of foodies to a supersized cook-off.
The winning pie consisted of:
■ 450.5 kilos of beef (the equivalent to five front ends of beef)
■ 550 kilos of potatoes
■ 100 kilos of carrots
■ 100 kilos of onions
■ 25 kilos of celery
■ 10 kilos of garlic
And licensee Piers Lyon told the Welwyn Hatfield Times he couldn't have done it without all the help of the volunteers who came down to the pub for a community peeling and chopping session, which was also attended by the film crews and the former Celebrity MasterChef winner Mr Dawson.
