  Largest guacamole serving-world record set by Miami-Dade students

 HOMESTEAD, Fla., USA -- Culinary students from culinary/agricultural programs at South Dade Senior High, John A. Ferguson Senior High, Robert Morgan Senior High and Homestead Senior High prepared a gigantic guacamole batch that weighed 4,114 pounds-which sets the new world record for the Largest guacamole serving.

   The event, called the Holy Moly Redland Guacamole Celebration, at Schnelby Winery in Redland raised money for the culinary programs at John A. Ferguson, Robert Morgan, South Dade and Homestead high schools.

   Guacamole is an avocado-based dip which originated in Mexico. Guacamole was originally made by the Aztecs by mashing ripe avocados with a molcajete (mortar and pestle) and adding tomatoes and salt.

   Ingredients: Ripe avocados, tomatoes, onions, lime or lemon juice, and salt are common to most recipes. Lime juice is added for flavor, and to slow the enzyme causing browning. Other common ingredients include cilantro (coriander), black pepper, jalapenos, garlic, etc.

   It took about 500 pounds of tomatoes, 100 pounds of mayonnaise, 500 limes and 3,500 pounds of avocados. The ingredients were donated by Fresh King Farms and the Krome family groves.

   The Largest guacamole serving was certified by the state’s weights and measures division.

    Some students juiced limes. Others pealed and squashed avocados. A few mixed the ingredients together. They worked until they filled a 13-gallon bucket with guacamole. Then they dumped it into a giant dumpster-looking cooler to be weighed.

   Chef Allen Susser of Chef Allen’s Restaurant, Chef Michael Schwartz of Michaels Genuine Food and Drink, Chef Darren Lee of Intercontinental West Miami Hotel and Chef Giancarla Bodoni (Escopazzo, Miami Beach) were each assigned one of four local high schools with culinary programs -- South Dade Senior High, John A. Ferguson Senior High, Robert Morgan Senior High and Homestead Senior High -- to help them break the record.

   Fresh King co-owner Peter Schnebly, his wife and Fresh King co-owner Denisse Serge, and high school agriculture teacher Will Dukes developed the three-day “Holy Moly Redland Guacamole Celebration” — which also featured avocado recipe competitions, food, music and dancing — to generate money for area high school culinary and agricultural programs and to increase awareness for Florida’s green skin avocados.

   Peter Schnebly said he plans to sponsor the festival annually. This year’s event attracted 1,000 people, much more than the 300-400 attendees organizers expected.

   The fundraiser made about $4,800 from the finished guacamole that was sold to benefit the schools. Schnebly also wants to use funds generated by the event to start a culinary institute in the Redlands area of Homestead and Florida City to train south Florida high school and college students.

   The students surpassed the previous Guinness world record for the Largest guacamole serving of 4,011 pounds, set in 2007 by the Mexican Avocado Industry in Lynwood, California.
