A Jaipur-based catering service team set a unique and new record in the prestigious “Asia Book of Records” for making the largest Ghewar (traditional sweet) on Thursday in Jaipur.
Throwing light on the event, Divolka Jain organizer of Salt Food Festival, said, "The objective behind this event was to put Jaipur and its food on the world map. Even though the minimum requirement to make it to the record was a 20 kg Ghewar, the team of Gyanjee caterers made a whopping 120 kg Ghewar. To ensure that the Ghewar does not break while coming out, special customized equipment was also made exclusively".
An adjudicator from Asia Book of Records, M Shantanu Chauhan who was also present on the occasion said, "This attempt was in the ‘Food and Fashion’ sub-category of ‘Culture and Creativity’".
It is to be recalled that the Salt Food Festival, organized in association with Gyanjee caterers is a 2-day event which will be held on 20 and 21 October. The fest will feature alluring workshops by celebrity chefs, pop ups by food giants from around the country and market by home chefs, entertainment nights, among others.
