World’s Longest Baguette: Another Record Broken at Expo Milano 2015

World’s Longest Baguette: Another Record Broken at Expo Milano 2015
The record for the longest baguette in the world was broken on October 18 at Expo Milano 2015.


A team of 27 Italian and French bakers set to work making the dough for a baguette 122.4 meters long, beating the previous record-holder, a baguette no less than 111 meters in length baked in 2009 in the Big C Supercenter, a supermarket in Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam.

Under the control of Guinness World Records judges, the baguette was baked for six hours in an extremely long mobile oven, then filled with Nutella and distributed in 2,400 portions to the visitors of the Expo.

The aim of the initiative, sponsored by Ferrero, was to celebrate the traditional combination of bread and the tasty chocolate spread and also to highlight the friendship between Italy and France.
