A Guinness Book of Records worthy 1 kilometre of cabbage leaves rolled around a filling of minced meat, known locally as Sarma, and weighing around 4 tonnes, was the highlight of the 16th Greens Festival which took place in Varazdin over the weekend.
The biggest sarma ever to be made in the world was just one of the attractions during the traditional festival held in Vidovec, where visitors were treated to a variety of ‘greens’, folklore, old customs, and music and dance. It was not the only Guiness Book of Records attempt made regarding food in Croatia over the weekend. On Saturday in Biograd na Moru, a 1.2 kilometer, one and a half tonne strudel, filled with a cherry compote, was successfully baked by locals. The previous longest strudel in the Guinness Book of Records was 720 metres, which the Croatians have comfortable beaten. (pic: Facebook)
