A new world french-frying record has been set.
BRUSSELS: A Belgian maker of French fries, the country’s proud national dish, has set a new world record for non-stop chip-making after frying mountains of potato strips for 83 consecutive hours.
The record by 53-year-old Chris Verschueren, owner of a French fries business, beat by 11 hours a previous record of 72 hours set in 1987 by a Briton chip chef.
‘‘My fingers are burnt, my feet are sore and my wrist is painful,’’ he told Belga national news agency. ‘‘But it doesn’t matter, I’m going to party now.’’ AFP
