The event took place at the Colony Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida, with sponsors Columbus Craft Meats, Yupik, Celebrity Goat, Divina, The Palm Beaches, The Vineyard House, Rustic Bakery, Dufeck Wood Products, and Atlas Event Rental co-hosting the occasion with Boarderie. Columbus Craft Meats’ products were used in the display. “We’re thrilled to be a part of this GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® title, which included more than 300 pounds of our premium cured meats,” said Columbus Craft Meats Charcuterie Director, Evan Inada in the press release.
The previous record was 440 pounds, which means that Boarderie’s charcuterie board was 369 pounds heavier. After the event concluded, all the food was donated to The Lord’s Place in West Palm Beach, a nonprofit dedicated to ending homelessness. There was also an auction to raise money for The Lord’s Place, with nearly $10,000 raised from auctioning off the world record certificates.
For those inspired to make their own festive board to celebrate the upcoming holiday, recipe developer Jaime Bachtell-Shelbert created the perfect Halloween charcuterie board for Mashed, filled with meats, cheeses, and the perfect mix of sweet candies and dips. Unlike the new record-holding version, this board will feed around eight people.
