Reuters – Crowds gathered in Mexico City on Wednesday (July 31) to watch chefs craft a record-breaking super “torta” sandwich. According to organizers, the 72-meter (236-foot) long “torta” sandwich set a new record for the longest such sandwich ever prepared in Mexico.

Different from the traditional sandwich, the torta is bigger in size and can include a variety of products. Thousands of pieces of bread, lettuce, onion, and tomato were mixed with myriad ingredients, including hundreds of liters of mayonnaise, mustard, and spicy sauces. Each section of the super torta had a different flavor, each representing numerous combinations that local cooks have created over the years.

The torta challenge kicks off a fair aimed at elevating the status of the Mexican sandwich. In recent years the torta has taken a back seat to increased consumption of mass-marketed fast foods.
