Trinity Chairman, Joseph Dias said, “It is indeed a momentous occasion for us after achieving two successful Guinness Records, the hat trick attempt proved challenging. We had to beat our own previous best of a choco mud pie weighing 1345 kilos. Goans having a sweet tooth, we decided on a bread pudding which universally is a traditional dessert. We had to not only get an oven specially fabricated for the attempt, but also added a whole lot of ingredients to make it a nutritious and healthy snack. This was keeping in mind our objective to always ensure the poor and needy share in our happiness of creating a world record. It also gave them a once in a lifetime opportunity to taste 5-star quality food, which many of us could afford, despite exorbitant prices.

The chefs’ team comprised Ranjeet Pandey, Prasad Paul, Sunit Sharma, Manjeet Singh, Saurabh Puri, Kunal Arolkar, Kapil Muchandi, Nitin Tewari, Ravi Vishwaskarma, Yogendra Ghatge, Subadeep Modak, Veronous, KS Mahesh, Farooq Baig, Lawrence Gomes and many more. Students and staff of Agnel Institute of Food Crafts & Culinary Sciences, Goa University, Goa College of Hospitality, among others assisted in the task.

Drawing support with the presence of the Union Minister of State for Food Processing Industries, Govt of India, Shri Rameswar Teli, who witnessed the baking and also mooted the idea of having a centrally assisted food processing unit in Goa to encourage a robust food industry in the state.

The world’s largest bread pudding was later distributed by Food Bank of Goa to a number of charity institutions so that the less privileged could partake of a happy meal. For culinary and baking enthusiasts, the makings of this global feat saw 176 kg of bread, 400 litres of milk, 400 litres of cream, 150 kg sugar, 25 kg butter, 400 kg eggs (8550 nos), 25 kg cashew nuts, 25 kg raisins, 2 litres vanilla essence and more.
