Two TikTok chefs have broken a Guinness World Record for world’s largest sushi roll by width.
American professional chef Nick DiGiovanni (@nick.digiovanni) and Japanese TikTok star Lynn Davis (@cookingwithLynja) teamed up to make food history on Oct. 7. The two friends went to Boston to prepare a gargantuan roll that would weigh the same as around 45,000 regular-sized sushi rolls put together.
The duo reportedly used a large sushi mold, around 2,000 pounds of sushi rice, 500 pounds of sushi-grade salmon, 500 pounds of cucumbers, thousands of nori sheets and millions of sesame seeds.

It took them and six other people around three hours to create their record-breaking sushi roll that measured 7 feet and 1 inch in width. The previous world record, which was set by Daniel Ramirez from Chile, was 2.10 meters (approximately 6.89 feet) in width.
After assembling the sushi roll, DiGiovanni and Davis gave their creation to members of The Farmlink Project, a nonprofit organization that brings fresh produce to communities in need. The sushi roll was then donated to a homeless shelter in Boston.
“None of this food will go to waste,” DiGiovanni, who placed third as a contestant on Season 10 of “MasterChef,” said.
