The resulting dish, which was made using an ostrich egg, weighed in at 18.3 pounds.

"This was a first for me, having not created anything so large in my cooking career! I always enjoy a challenge, and this was one that I really did enjoy doing. I am delighted to have broken a Guinness World Record title and have had enormous fun creating this much-loved picnic staple but glad I got lots of practice in before the judging," Evans told Wiltshire Live.
