  The Guinness World Records' record for the largest collection of prepared food-related items consists of 8,083 items and belongs to Akiko Obata (Japan) in Sanbugun, Chiba, Japan, as of 24 January 2014.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest distribution of food samples; it was achieved by Kraft Foods of Brazil and organized by Saraguato Promotional Marketing (both Brazil), who distributed 623,111 samples of Club Social crackers in Salvador, Brazil, on 14 February 2010.

   The 123-pound dumpling was prepared and cooked by Rivers' Executive Chef Richard Marmion and Assistant Executive Chef Adam Tharpe.

   "As a Pittsburgh native, I appreciate our city's passion for pierogies, which you can see on the menus in the restaurants throughout the casino," said Richard Marmion, executive chef of Rivers Casino. "Our team had a great time preparing for this challenge, and we're very excited to celebrate National Pierogi Day with a big win—literally."

   Pierogi are dumplings of unleavened dough – first boiled, then they are baked or fried usually in butter with onions – traditionally stuffed with potato filling, sauerkraut, ground meat, cheese, or fruit.

   In celebration of the new record and National Pierogi Day, players will be treated to a free tasting of world-famous Mrs. T's® pierogies from noon to 1 p.m. in Levels Lounge.
