World's Longest Lunch Table Seats

World's longest table seats 2,700 for lunch In further proof that some people will go to great lengths to break world records, chefs in Italy have attempted to break the record for the world's longest table - servig lunch on a table over a mile long.

The 1,760 metre-long spread was laid on in Bosco, near Parma in northern Italy for 2,700 diners - and the record bid is now being examined by Guinness World Records officials.

As well as the table itself, which ran for over a mile through the sunlit countryside from Bosco to nearby Borzano, the dinner also required a tablecloth 1,800 metres in length. Impressively, the whole thing was set up with just 20 days planning, after a bet between friends took on a life of its own.

'We wanted to organise a really special lunch, and we'll give all the money we raised to the local hospital Madonna dell'Uliveto,' said organiser Laurenti Marastoni.

'It was a great lunch - even if the waiter service was a little bit slow,' commented one rather picky guest.
