Ovations FanFare hired Stitches ‘n Dishes to document the attempt to cook the World’s Largest Commercially Available Hamburger in photos and film for submission to the Guinness Book of Records in July, 2011 at the Alameda County Fair.

Nick Nicora, Co-Owner of Ovations Food Services was awarded Venues Today’s coveted Hall of Headlines Award in Concessions for his outstanding achievements in cooking jumbo burger, weighing in at 777 lbs in July.

“When I first heard that I was chosen for this award, my thoughts were looking back on past awards and I’m humbled to be ranked with winners such as Ken Young, President at Ovations Food Services and Norb Bartosik, President / CEO at California State Fair,” said Nicora. “Stitches ‘n Dishes held their video footage until Guinness recognized the achievement, but now they’re free to share it with everyone.”
