Milan, Italy has become the home to the world’s biggest baguette according to A Guinness World Records judge.
Around 60 French and Italian bakers produced the sandwich that measured at 121 metres during a seven-hour baking frenzy at the Milan Expo 2015 World’s Fair. The team of bakers used a specially designed portable oven that makes the bread known for its crusty exterior and soft centre.
Despite being hindered by being outdoors, the bakers worked at a rate of 8 metres per hour using a plastic cover over the dough to protect it. Breadtopping favourite, Nutella sponsored the event and it was spread over the baguette after the result was announced and shared with the crowd.
