Lebanese chefs have set a world record for hummus

Lebanese cooks whipped up more than 10 metric tons of hummus, breaking a world record previously held by rival Israel.

The gigantic serving of the popular Middle Eastern chickpea paste is the latest shot in the two countries' ongoing war to assert ownership over the dip.

Some 300 Lebanese cooks prepared the huge batch of hummus which weighed in at 10,452 kilograms. That more than doubled the previous record of around four metric tons set in January by cooks in an Arab town near Jerusalem.
