During the “Bucharest Food Festival”, “Scandia" Sibiu has cooked a 279.49 US gallons (1058 liters) pot of “Traditii” tripe soup – setting the world record for the Largest Tripe Soup.
“Eight Chefs have cooked it for seven hours. They worked hard, but is was worth, as we established a world record for the Largest Tripe Soup. "It is a traditional dish, that people do not prepare often at home."
"The 1.058 litres that we prepared (over 5.000 helpings) were eaten in no time” – explained Silvian Scornea, the chef of the “Mircea Macelaru” restaurant, who supervised the preparation of the Largest Tripe Soup.
“This type of dish – the tripe soup – has been in the Scandia portfolio for ten years and the Romanians are devoted consumers. Due to this, our sour soup range increased and we have four types of soup at present. After setting the world record for the Largest Tripe Soup, we hope to become renowned worldwide”, declared the Scandia representatives.
“We were glad because we established the world record for the Largest Tripe Soup, but also because the visitors ate heartily our soup” said Silvian Scornea.
