Largest open buffet in the world

by Gizem Melek

The world’s largest open buffet in Kusadasi, Turkey, offering 1028 dishes, made it to the Guinness book of records.

Kusadasi Chefs Society prepared the 5th Open Buffet Food Festival for the tourism week on the west coast of Turkey.

The festival's official website confirmed, 400 chefs from the hospitality industry in the town got together to prepare the massive buffet on a 7000 meter square field.

20,000 people watched the festival which became a showcase for the 1028 diversity of foods; salads, traditional main dishes, desserts, appetizer and drinks.

The preparation for the record costed 1 million Turkish Lira. The Anatolian Agency reported.

Kelly Garret, Guinnes Director, London, took part in the festival and tried every salad, dessert and food to confirm the record.

Garret said the buffet was even larger than the previous record holder in Arizona, USA which had 601 different foods, according to the news sources.

Hayati Gokceel, Director of the Kusadasi Chefs Society, told Anatolian Agency, “We knew that we would break the record and we are very happy about the result.

This was a great opportunity for us to introduce our rich cuisine to the rest of the world. 90% of the dishes are Turkish dishes. We worked hard indeed and we are proud of the result.”

After it was declared as the “World’s Largest Open Buffet”, the dishes were consumed by the spectators in a couple of hours.
