Goan company, the Trinity Group, recently got Guinness certification for the world’s largest fish patty (cutlet). The Guinness authorities handed over the certification to officials from the Trinity group, Goan 5-star hotel chefs (members of the culinary forum) and those associated with the record in the presence of Shripad Naik, union AYUSH minister.
Congratulating the makers of the fish patty for putting Goa on the international seafood map, Naik, assured all assistance in organising the next world record as “it made the state proud Joseph Dias, chairman of Trinity Group said “The idea of creating the world’s largest fish patty originated since we wanted to give back to the Goan food and hospitality industry, from which we have over the last 15 years received much support. We also wanted the poor and less privileged to at least taste 5-star food once in their lifetime. We are grateful to all who helped us achieve this milestone. We are encouraged to take a shot at another record soon.”
The Guinness world record attempt for the world’s largest fish patty took place on August 3 2017 at the International Hospitality Expo, in Dr SP Mukherjee Stadium. The giant patty weighed 296.5 kg and breached all parameters of the record as the requirement was 200 kgs.
On the certification process, Dias said that, it took non-stop video footage, photographs, documentation, etc., and back and forth before the Guinness authorities in UK to confirm and certify the patty.
The patty took five hours and almost four hours of baking in the oven and it was distributed to orphans, destitute and the elderly by the Sangolda food bank for the poor.
