World’s largest arepa set Guinness World Record by Venezuela’s largest food company cooks

CARACAS, Venezuela — Employees of Venezuela’s largest food company cooked the world’s largest
arepa Wednesday, producing a flattened corn flour patty weighing 1,087.31 pounds. It was
19.7feet across.

Arepas, which vaguely resemble Mexican tamales, are a traditional favorite in this South American country and neighboring Colombia. The patties are usually stuffed with fillings like shredded beef, cheese or black beans.

Ralph Hannah, a representative of the Guinness Book of World Records, certified the record weight after the giant arepa was cooked for hours over a heated metal plate and the water used to mix the dough evaporated.

The previous record weight for an arepa was 440 pounds.
