Sushi chefs 'make 330ft California roll'

Amateur sushi chefs have reportedly made a world record-sized dish in celebration of the University of California's Centre for Japanese Studies.

Students made a 330ft California roll in honour of the 50th birthday of the department, The AP reports.

The dish was made using 200 pounds of rice, 180 pounds of fish, 80 pounds of cucumber and 80 pounds of avocado.

The final 15 feet of the roll were made with tofu instead of fish in respect to the university's vegetarian students.

According to a university spokeswoman, the creation surpassed the previous record of a 300ft California roll made in Hawaii in 2001.
