The Big Felafel


Israeli cooks giant falafel for NY Parade

Thanks to @davidzstein for alerting me to the most important news of the century!

According to the Jpost:

In honor of the annual New York ‘Salute to Israel Parade’ on Sunday May 23, an Israeli chef cooked a 30 lb (13.5 kg) falafel ball, setting a world record.

Former Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau and an engineer certified the ball of chickpeas and spices for the Guinness Book of World Records. The ball was cooked in over 40 l. of water, and has a circumference of over a meter.

It seemed only appropriate that we report on a giant felafel here on The Big Felafel.
