World's Longest Apple Tart Promotes Apples, Celiac Disease Awareness

Celiac.com 01/13/2012 - In an event that was part local apple festival, part celiac disease awareness promotion, and one-hundred percent record-breaking bake-off, a team of community members in Buenos Aires has baked the world's longest apple tart. One third of the 984-foot tart was made gluten-free to promote celiac disease awareness.

Enthusiastic volunteers removed sections of the tart from numerous bakery trucks parked along Rivadavia Avenue, the world's longest avenue.

They then assembled them end to end, making sure to keep the gluten-free portions carefully separated from the rest of the tart.

This is the third year in a row that the tart-baking group, which is based in from Cinco Saltos, Argentina, has organized the tart bake-off.

Another goal of the event, say event organizers, is to draw attention to their local apples, which they call the most delicious apples in the world.

Says organizer Maricarmen Garcia, "It is the longest tart in the world but this time on the longest avenue in the world. We are happy to bring the tart here to the people of Buenos Aires for them to try. It is exquisite. It is homemade and we are promoting that we have the best apples in the world."      

About twenty-four thousand people helped to consume the tart.

Too close for comfort -- cross contamination is treated as an afterthought in this "separate 1/3 gluten-free pie".
