5731Record trio for Dubai as city tucks into world’s largest cereal breakfastMembers of the public in Dubai got their day off to the perfect start last Friday, by setting a trio of breakfast-themed world records.During an event organised by Kellogg's Middle East & Africa at Dubai's Marina Mall, a record-setting 1,354 participants sat down to eat together for the world's largest cereal breakfast.The massive meal beat the previous record for a breakfast attendance which was 841 people, set in Kent in the UK last year.Stalls were set up to serve cereals prepared in different styles from countries such as Russia, India and the Philippines.In order to seat the huge number of gathered diners, the organisers required a super-sized piece of furniture, so a table stretching an incredible 301 m (987 ft 6.36 in) along the marina's promenade was created for the attempt, in turn setting a new world record for longest table.To round matters off, Kelloggs also unveiled the world's largest cereal box at the event, which measured 2.84 m (9 ft 3.84 in) in length, 1.11 m (3 ft 7.68 in) in depth and 4 m (13 ft 1.44 in) in height.One of the many participants who helped set the record was Gina Gelvero, originally from the Philippines, who got up at 4.40am to take part."I live in International City so I had to take many buses to make it but it was worth it," she said. "The event was amazing."Speaking after the event, Rachel Fellows, director of communications and brand public relations at Kellogg's, said: "It is the most important meal of the day and often the most neglected."We're passionate about building awareness of breakfast and making it fun, and the record attempt felt like a good way to do both."This was a family event and having breakfast with your family should be part of your daily routine."Related storiesVideo: Breakfast in bed world record set in AustraliaLargest omelette world record set by Portuguese chefsJamie Oliver and Gennaro Contaldo cook up Guinness World Records double for new YouTube channel launch
5732Guinness World Records announces new Certificates of ParticipationMany of the most iconic Guinness World Records achievements have been broken by groups of tens, hundreds, and even thousands coming together toward one goal.And now, the global authority on record-breaking has introduced a way to recognize them all.Guinness World Records is proud to announce its recently launched “ Certificate of Participation” service to record-breaking groups around the world. It marks a watershed opportunity for individuals who attended mass participation world record attempts – and whose unique participation made those attempts successful – to receive formal, official recognition for their efforts.Each certificate is available for purchase after a successful attempt, with the use of serialized, unique codes provided to record event organizers. Organizers are then encouraged to share these codes with participants for the attempts they undertake, allowing all those who helped make history to own a piece of it.While event organizers will still be awarded their own individual certificates, the Certificate of Participation will state an individual participant’s name, recognizing their involvement in the record, as well as listing the full record details.This all comes printed on irreplicable Guinness World Records paper stock, along with an official seal of acknowledgement, provided in a convenient holding sleeve with a foreword signed by Guinness World Records President, Alistair Richards.Now the 104,173 Michigan and Michigan State fans who packed Michigan Stadium in 2010 for the largest attendance at an ice hockey game can prove they had a seat for one of the sport’s legendary contests.And those who painted themselves blue in 2011 for the largest gathering of Smurfs in multiple venues can own a unique keepsake that reminds them of the time they joined with thousands of fellow record breakers across 11 countries to make history.Guinness World Records invites all mass participation record organizers past and future to inquire about certificates of participation for their attempts, with more information available here.

5742Oldest restaurantRestaurante BotínSpain, Madrid01 January 1725Restaurante Botín in Calle de Cuchilleros, Madrid, Spain was opened in 1725 by a French cook called Jean Botín and his Asturian wife at the beginning of the 18th century with the intention of working for a nobleman of the Spanish Royal Court. Today the restaurant is run by the third generation of the Gonzalez family, Antonio and Jose Gonzalez. Located in the heart of Madrid near the Plaza Mayor it now has four floors which retain the original 18th-century interiors as well as the original firewood oven.The existence of the building which currently houses Restaurante Botín dates back to 1590 coinciding with the temporary transfer of the Royal Court to Valladolid, northern Spain by Felipe III. The proprietor of the building at this time requested what was called an 'Exemption of Guests Privilege' a document which still exists today. After paying a certain tax, this exemption allowed all owners of a building with more than one floor to avoid having to house guests from the Royal Court when they visited Madrid. In 1606 the Royal Court returned to Madrid and in 1620 renovation work started in nearby Plaza Mayor (the old Plaza del Arrabal) and the area became a commercial enclave of the city filling the streets with shoemakers, tanners, metal workers and others. The streets today bear the names of the businesses which were once there: 'Ribera de Curtidores', 'Plaza de Herradores' and 'Calle de Cuchilleros' where Restaurante Botín is located. In 1725, Jean Botín and his wife opened a small inn and renovated the ground floor closing the existing arcade, evidence of which can be seen today. It is curious to note that well into the 18th century, the inn was not allowed to sell meat, wine or food but only what guests brought themselves and which was then cooked on the premises, a Spanish custom at the time. Jean Botín and his wife passed away without any children so the restaurant was taken up by Mrs. Botín's nephew and since then the restaurant bears the name "Sobrino de Botín" ("Nephew of Botín"). After further renovations to the ground floor (in the 19th century), the restaurant was taken up by Gonzalez family (Amparo Martin and Emilio Gonzalez) in the 20th century who are the present proprietors.

5745Most dangerous cheeseCasu MarzuThe most dangerous cheese to human health is Casu Marzu (or ''rotten cheese''), an illegally-produced sheeps' milk cheese considered a delicacy in Sardinia, Italy. It is essentially a Pecorino cheese left to rot, where flies can lay eggs resulting in thousands of maggots (fly larvae) infesting it. The enzymes produced by these maggots assists the fermentation process of the cheese, which itself adds to the desired taste of it. The dangers can occur when the maggots, once consumed, can survive stomach acid to pass through the intestine walls, causing vomiting, abdominal pain and bloody diarrhea.
