  Largest 'Jerusalem mixed grill'-Israeli chefs sets world record

 JERUSALEM, Israel--Israeli chefs created a giant "Jerusalem mix," a local speciality of grilled meats, which weighed in at 440 pounds (200 kilogrammes)-setting the world record for the Largest 'Jerusalem mixed grill' ('meurav yerushalmi').

    The dish, "meurav yerushalmi" or Jerusalem mix, is a local favourite, made by grilling a mixture of chicken pieces, chicken livers, hearts and kidneys with thinly sliced onions and topped with spices.

   22 pounds of flour were used to make the two yard long pita bread that was the base for the mixed grill. The grilled meat weighed in at 70 lbs (32 kilograms) and the salad at 24 lbs (12 kilograms). 3 lbs (1.5kg) of spices were also used.

   Jerusalem's famous Angel Bakery was tasked with baking the oversized pita.

 The meat mixture, served on pita bread, includes chicken hearts, livers, spleen and lamb grilled with onion, garlic and an array of Middle Eastern spices.

   "It's the most Jerusalem of dishes, a mixture of all the peoples and cultures, a mixture of peace and unity," said organizer Noam Shaked.

    The market's merchants and passersby were invited to take part in preparing the meal, and once the record was broken they found themselves sharing the enormous meal.     

   A local lawyer documented the documented the size and weight of the cuisine created. There is no previous world record for the Largest 'Jerusalem mixed grill' in the Guinness Book of World Records.

    Alongside the world's largest mixed grill sandwich, the Jerusalem chefs also prepared the world's smallest dish: A Jerusalem mixed grill in a pita the size of a coin.

    The Jerusalem mixed grill was presented as part of the Hamshushalayim 2009 festivities, an annual cultural event held in the capital.

   Organisers said the project was also part of a programme to promote tourism in Jerusalem.
