Believing that they can never have too much, citizens of Kyrgyzstan made a 117 metre (384 feet) long giant chuchuk horse meat sausage and 1,464 kg (1.4 ton) of beshbarmak, the traditional Kyrgyz dish, in an attempt to break the world record in Bishkek on Monday. They pick up the competition from the neighbours in Kazakhstan, who made the record for the largest portion of beshbarmak weighing in... Еще at a whopping 736.5 kilogrammes of the dish. Kyrgyz chefs decided to challenge it and came up with a 1,454 (1.4 ton) kilogramme serving of the traditional cuisine. They also attempted a world record of the longest chuchuk, measuring 117 metres (384 feet). Once done, the beshbarmak was given away free to the people who came. The rest was delivered to nursing homes and orphanages. Chuchuk is a typical sausage of Central Asia and the Middle East. It consists of ground meat (either beef, pork, lamb and horse according to the area), with various spices including fenugreek, cumin, sumac, garlic, salt, and red pepper, fed into a sausage casing. Beshbarmak is the national dish of Kyrgyzstan and is common across Central Asia. It consists of boiled meat finely chopped with knives, mixed with boiled noodles, and spiced with onion sauce. It is usually served in a big round dish and eaten with the hands.
