The Jewish Food and Cultural Festival, held Sunday, May 15 at College of the Canyons, was a chance for families to enjoy some good noshes, a little silliness, do some shopping and enjoy entertainment by singers and comedians. The wind was a bit of a challenge, but all involved seemed to take it in stride. Canter’s Deli food truck ran out of supplies early on, a testament to the delicious offerings; likewise, the legendary A-1 Pickles sold out the first hour or so, leaving latecomers wanting for their sour fix.

The college parking lot was laid out like a small city
Perhaps the most eagerly anticipated event of the festival was the making of a falafel ball that would break the Guiness World’s Record. Would it make the cut? The paparazzi clicked away…
The scale says 50.8, but by the time weights and measures got there, it had settled a bit and came in at 52 pounds – more than doubling the current world record for a falafel ball.
Sadly, no one got to taste it, as health department regulations prohibit that.
