The World Records Union (WorldKings) and Vietnam Records Organisation (Vietkings) have recognised the first Dong Thap Lotus Festival 2022 as the world’s largest event of lotus-based dishes.

The World Record has been awarded to the Mekong Delta province of Dong Thap for hosting the largest event on the processing and presentation of 200 lotus-based dishes.

Boasting large lotus growing areas and rich culinary culture, Dong Thap organised the festival to introduce domestic and foreign friends to various Vietnamese specialities.

At the Dong Thap Lotus Festival 2022, themed “Lotus of a New Day”, 10 culinary experts and 50 chefs were on hand to process and present hundreds of delicacies made from various parts of the lotus plant such as the root, flower stem, leaf, seeds and seed heart.

After completion, 200 dishes were presented in the shape of a 10-petal blooming lotus.

The event was held in the province’s Cao Lanh City’s Van Mieu Square last weekend.

Dong Thap province plans to expand lotus farming, increase the value of lotus products and promote tourism based on visits to lotus fields. — Vietnam News/ANN
