Fifty chefs in the Arab-Israeli village of Abu Ghosh on Friday mashed up over four tons of hummus, beating the Guinness World Record set in Lebanon just months ago.
"This is a new record," said Guinness adjudicator Jack Brookbank as the massive dip, dished out in a six-meter (20 foot) satellite dish provided by sponsors, weighed in at 4,087.5 kilos (8992.5 pounds).
That is about twice as much as the previous record set in October in neighboring Lebanon, Israel's political and culinary rival.
"I've heard Lebanon is already planning to strike back," Brockbank told AFP as a band struck up a traditional Arabic tune to words hailing the humble hummus.
