A big record breaking dip!

Record breaking Hummus attempt

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

Chefs in Lebanon in the Middle East have cooked up a record breaking dish, 10 tonnes of a chick pea based dip called hummus!

It might look like an enormous pool of porridge you'd like to jump in, but it's actually something you might have eaten before with carrot sticks.

Three hundred chefs broke the record for the biggest amount of hummus ever made, and as you can see it's going to take some time to get through!

This effort more than doubles the previous record attempt of four tonnes of hummus which was cooked up in Jerusalem in Israel four years ago.
