About 400 kilos of beans, 200 kilos of bacon, nine kilos of onions and large quantities ,f other ingredients were used to prepare the beans according to a traditional Macedonian recipe called “Tetovsko Grafche”.

The preparations for the big event started early in the morning as big crowds amassed to watch the spectacle.

Several thousand people sampled the specialty after six hours of cooking.

The bean dish is considered a traditional meal in Macedonia with many variations from region to region.

The previous record was held by a group of students from the US town of Horace, North Dakota who in 2002 managed to prepare 1.342 litres of beans.
