Nutella to help baguette record attempt

Italian and French bakers aim for 120-metre loaf

(ANSA) - Milan, October 14 - Nutella on Wednesday said it will provide all the chocolate spread necessary to "fill" the results of an attempt by Italian and French bakers at Expo on Sunday to make the world's largest baguette.
    The current record, held by a supermarket in Vietnam, is a baguette 111 metres long.
    Bakers at Expo on Sunday are aiming for a loaf that will reach 120 metres.
    Work will commence at 9:30 a.m., when a team of 20 Italian bakers and 7 French bakers will rigorously follow the original French recipe to construct the loaf, a task they expect will take about six hours.
    Nutella has already received one prize at Expo: that of "Most International Breakfast in the World" on September 13, a contest in which people from 55 different nationalities participated.
