  Largest Gathering of Chefs in One Place: UAE breaks Guinness world record

 
DUBAI, UAE -- As part of an initiative by the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing and Emirates Culinary Guild over the past few months, 2847 people wearing chef whites – hats and all – gathered at Meydan racecourse,

  The previous Guinness world record for the Largest gathering of chefs was set by 2,111 people who dressed in white at Daejon, South Korea.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest gathering of people dressed as turkeys: 661 - accomplished at the 44th Annual Capital One Bank Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot in Dallas, Texas, USA.

  The event was held at Meydan racecourse from noon to evening with the grand culinary gathering being the first of many events to bring Emirati cuisine closer to the UAE residents, as well as commemorating the seventh accession of His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

  All the victorious 2,500 in chef whites had to do was stay in the stands for the essential five minute countdown to beat the Guinness world record and as they eagerly waited for the final second to draw in, cheers rang out from the crowds as they performed variants of the Mexican wave.

  The crowds, judging by talking to a handful of them, were thrilled to be a part of this "Reunion for all the chefs in the UAE" as Roderick Peridiguerra, executive chef at ADIFC – Abu Dhabi Inflight Catering Service said.
