The sandwich fest was part of the summertime
Windsor Farmers Market, which celebrated the seventh Annual
Tomato and Pepper Festival Sunday.
Marie Ganister, director of the culinary
program at the Windsor High School Culinary Arts,
readied her students for the final step, putting both
sides of the sandwich together. “OK everybody,” she said,
a length of BLT for as long as she could see to either side.
“Close your sandwich!”
At $5 a slice, the potential history-maker
served as a fund-raiser for the 160-student culinary program.
“How sweet it is,” said Windsor Town
Councilman Sam Salmon, tucking into the BLT’s ceremonial first
slice. “I like good bread. I like tomatoes. I like lettuce.
Mmm, mmm, mmm.”
Windsor’s BLT record attempt follows on
the heels of 2006’s 500-pound apple pie and what was billed
as the world’s largest-diameter pumpkin pie in 2003.
