The Guinness World Record for the longest baguette has been set in Milan, Italy.

The 122 metre long baguette was baked at the Milan Expo 2015 World’s Fair. More than 60 French and Italian bakers worked 7 hours to break the record.

The bakers fed the bread through a portable oven by moving the heat along the length of the baguette. It took about an hour to bake 20 metres of the bread and bakers were force outside to hold the dough straight and avoid breakage as each section was baked.

This is at least the 4th world record set at the Expo this year, including a pizza that is 1.5954km long! The Expo runs for 6 months and is due to end on October 31st.
