A 157m and 80cm roll was made in Astana on July 5, Tengrinews.kz reports. The dish is aiming at getting into the Guinness Book of Records. 160 people worked on preparation of the kimpab (Korean rolls). This was their present to Astana residents and guests before the Capital Day and 20th Anniversary of Kazakhstan Independence. The culinary record was set during a festival called Culinary art for the beloved city. The almost 160m roll was made right next to the city administration building at the old square. The previous record was set by students from Philadelphia whose roll was 138 meters long. “Kimpab is a national traditional roll which is very popular in Korea,” a chief Gulnara Lin said. Its preparation requires nori leaves, sesame oil, rice, sesame seeds, daikon, cucumbers and salmon.” According to organizers, they have sent a request to the Guinness Records Book, but did not wait for completion of all the procedures wanting to make the kimpab-roll before the Capital Day. “We have photo and video proof and have a full right for official acknowledgement of the record,” one of the organizers said.
