World's Largest Lobster Roll

The West End Neighborhood Association plans on making a 60 foot long lobster roll at this year’s Old Port Festival. Their goal is to raise money for neighborhood projects and make it into the Guinness Book of World Records.

Whittaker said the association will name a panel of experts to develop a recipe for a lobster roll that’s enormous, delicious and authentically Maine.

It will be made with fresh Maine lobster meat and mayonnaise. It won’t include fillers such as chopped celery.

“That’s a no-no,” Whittaker said. “We haven’t decided whether we’ll use lettuce, which is mostly added for aesthetic value.”

The association is looking for a bakery that’s willing and able to bake a hot dog-style roll that’s at least 60 feet long.
