Birgu / Vittoriosa Fest


The world's largest cooking pot was lowered by a crane at Victory Square, Vittoriosa, ahead of Malta's biggest cookery event yesterday evening as part of BirguFest.

The pot, large enough to hold risotto for 5,000 people, has a diameter of 3.30 metres and weighs 520 kilos.

This sounds like a good night out,might try to make it though I think it will be too busy for me, but no risotto for me thanks as I don't really like rice dishes!

what a fun photo! its good you included a kid to show its size =)Good for 5,000 people? I wonder, will it take one cook or many to make a dish from that? Because as they say too many cooks...
