SUNY Purchase students break record for longest sushi roll

PURCHASE -

Students at SUNY Purchase broke the world record for the longest sushi roll.

The students created a 504-foot California roll consisting of 650 sheets of nori, 300 pounds of rice plus lots of avocado and crab.

The record was  previously set by University of Massachusetts, Amherst at 422 feet.

Food Network chef Jet Tila orchestrated the fun by helping perfect the roll.  She says it all comes down to the rice.

“What people don't know is the rice is seasoned with sugar, salt and vinegar. It helps bond it together. It raises the ph of the rice and it gives you the perfect stickiness to create sushi,” says Tila.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Westchester Food Bank and Midnight Run, which helps homeless people in the area.
