Attendees at Liaoning’s Carrot Culture Festival were yesterday privileged to witness the construction of the world’s largest dumpling.
According to Tencent, the giant dumpling, measuring 2 meters long, 0.8 meters wide and 0.85 meters tall, was made yesterday morning at the opening of the Carrot Culture Festival in Shenyang, Liaoning province, attracting a great number of spectators.
The dumpling was made of 300 kilos of carrots, 25 kilos of celery, 200 kilos of flour and an assortment of seasonings, including salt, oil and pepper powder.
According to reporters, the dumpling took the volunteers roughly an hour to make.
The festival was organised to encourage more people to eat carrots and raise awareness of their nutritional content.
The organizers said that the dumpling is equivalent to 700,000 of the small dumplings that you might encounter at a normal restaurant.
Frustratingly, however, after going to all that effort, spectators were unable to taste the giant carrot dumpling. At least these festival goers in Zhengzhou were allowed to try the giant hotpot on offer.
