LAROSE - A team led by Louisiana lawyers set the Guinness World Record for the world's largest pot of gumbo.

The Courier reports the team led by Arlen Braud and Michelle Gallagher set the record at 5,800 pounds at the Larose Civic Center on Saturday in southern Louisiana. The event was part of Major League Eaters' World Record Gumbo Eating Competition.

Gerald Danos helped build the pot which took about 700 hours to make. It was then filled with 1,500 pounds of shrimp, 500 pounds of crabs and 40 gallons of oysters and was consumed by the hundreds of visitors at the event.
