TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Changhua County (彰化縣) is ready to challenge the Guinness World Records again with their special local cuisine, oyster pancake, in the 2013 Changhua Gourmet Gestival on Saturday, Dec. 7. The county had already achieved two records before by creating the world largest Taiwanese meatball and the biggest stewed pork with rice, said the local government.
The challenge will take place in the playground of Chunghua Lukang Junior High School (鹿港國中). This time, they are aiming to break the record for “most people cooking simultaneously,” and are calling everyone to join them in order to complete the challenge. Changhua County is hoping to get 3,000 people in order to surpass the current record of 2,300.
In addition, the Chunghua County will also cooperate with vendors and prepare 10,000 free gift coupons for visitors to try the special local cuisine. They welcome everyone to try the famous pearl oysters which are used in this local speciality. The oysters are raised naturally, and are thus smaller, yet juicier and tastier than normal ones.
