The world’s Largest Chocolate Truffle Mosaic



         Another Emiratis achievement this year that UAE should be proud of as they broke the record for the largest chocolate truffle mosaic. 

The Guinness World Record awarded the official certificate to Za’ abeel Palace Hospitality of Dubai for  a record breaking.  The said 404 square meters truffle chocolate mosaic has an EXPO 2020 logo in the middle covered with 360,000 pieces white chocolates.

The formation of this giant chocolates mosaic was completed by 85 students.

Emirati businesswoman Sara Rashed Al Sanqiti, who runs ‘Minilicious’ in Dubai conceived this idea in line with the inaugural  of Dubai World Hospitality Championship (DWHC) with the theme: “Continuing the Legacy of Emirati Hospitality”.

Shaikha Al Mutawa from the local championship committee of Dubai World Hospitality Championship, said: “Dubai has raised the bar and set uncompromising standards for itself and its people. DWHC is a testimony to the fact that with hard work and boundless talent it is still possible to revive the half-forgotten magic of timeless culinary traditions, and present them in a manner that is interesting to today’s generation. We are thrilled to be a part of this historic cookery championship, and these records are our way of expressing our gratitude and appreciation to the UAE.”

DWHC is an event to showcase  the skills in culinary from different countries. Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, Russia, Singapore, Slovenia, South Africa, UAE, USA, and Wales were among the countries who joined the competition held last Nov. 16-18, 2013 at The World Trade Center Dubai, UAE.
