Indonesia makes world’s biggest spring roll


Published on Apr 23, 2012

Authorities in the Indonesian city of Semarang have made the world’s biggest spring roll. Taking a break from their usual duties, officials from the Semarang municipal administration set a new record on Saturday when they constructed the 465-metre-long snack at the Indonesian Museum of Records. The move forms part of the celebrations marking the city’s 465th anniversary, which falls on 2 May 2012. The Jakarta Post reported that the spring roll had a diameter of 5cm, and was made using 13,000 sheets of rice paper and one ton of bamboo shoots. More than 400 cooks from local restaurants were involved in the effort. The spring roll will now be displayed as part of a food festival in the city. I wonder how much plum sauce they’ll need to dip it in…
