The current record is also held by Bosnian cooks is that of a giant stew that weighed 4,026 kilos (8,875 pounds) in the northern town of Prnjavor.

The massive traditional stew contained 1,000 kilos of chicken meat, 150 kilos of carrots, 50 kilos of celery, up to 30 kilos of onions, 15 kilos of okra, 100 kilos of flour as well 100 liters of oil and 50 kilos of butter and weighed 4,124 kilos.
