    Lebanon fires latest salvo in hummus battle with Israel

    Lebanon fires latest salvo in hummus battle with Israel


    Lebanon has claimed the latest victory in the continuing battle with Israel over which country can make the largest serving of hummus.

    Some 300 chefs set the new record, creating a huge 10-tonne vat of the chickpea-based dip in Fanar.

    That more than doubles the previous record of about four tonnes, set in January by cooks in the Israeli-Arab town of Abu Ghosh near Jerusalem.

    Both Lebanese and Israelis claim hummus as a national dish.

    A Guinness World Records adjudicator confirmed that Lebanon now held the record.

    Hummus is a dip made of chickpeas, olive oil, sesame paste, lemon juice and garlic.

    The chefs mixed the ingredients together in a giant plate which itself claimed a record for the largest earthenware dish.

    There is a rather amusing film called, "Don't mess with the Zohan" that makes a standing joke out of that stuff.
