Food festival toasts world record
About 400 loaves are to be used in the mosaic
People in Chester are attempting to break a world record for the largest mosaic ever made out of toast.

Organisers of the city's food and drink festival will use 400 loaves of bread and two vats of strawberry jam to build the mosaic 5m by 13m on Wednesday.

The current record is held by Maurice Bennett of New Zealand, who created a toasted work of art measuring 12m x 4.1m in February 1999.

The mosaic must stay in place for eight hours for the record to be valid.

The toast will be assembled in the shape of the festival's logo, with slices in varying states of 'doneness' to shade the image.

The food and drink festival is organised by Chester City Council, the Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA) and Cheshire & Warrington Tourism Board.
