World's Largest Pot of Soup

This weekend folks in Venezuela set a new world record for the largest pot of soup. The government of Venezuela prepared a giant 3,960 gallon cauldron of "sancocho" stew in downtown Caracas. The stew contained 6,600 pounds of chicken, 4,400 pounds of beef and tons (literally) of veggies.

Although the pot officially held 5,413 gallons, workers stopped at 3/4 full due to security reasons. However there was enough stew to serve 60,000 to 70,000 people.

The whole stunt was done to show that despite recent supply problems in Venezuela, the state-run market has plenty of reserves of all products.
