  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most different dishes on display: 5,845 - achieved by Kraft Foods Philippines at Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, Philippines.

  "Artichokes are a big part of our food culture here in New Orleans and we did a little investigating and learned there is no record-setting display for fresh vegetables," said Joe Watson, director of produce, Rouses Supermarkets.

  The display was unveiled on Saturday, April 21, with a special appearance by "Arti" the artichoke and Dale Huss, vice president artichoke production, Ocean Mist Farms.

  In addition, Rouses showed shoppers how to clean and prepare an artichoke for cooking, and served "easy baked artichokes" with chipotle mayo.
