World's Largest Lasagna, 200,000 Liters of Beer Served for Euro Championship

Soccer (or, more properly, football) may not be as big stateside, but overseas they're pulling out the big feasts

Looks like UEFA European Football Championship fans are starting to pay a little more attention to food; not only are crazy amounts of fans drinking crazy amounts of beer in pubs across the world, but certain local places are also dishing up special foods for the season.

First off, a Polish restaruant has set a Guinness World Record for the largest lasagna, honoring the Italian football team. Reuters reports that the entire lasanga weighed more than 4.8 tonnes (10,582 pounds) and took 10 hours to bake. It was sliced into 10,000 pieces.

Then, the city of Kiev set up a Fan Zone for 12 days of Euro 2012. What happened during those 12 days? Fans visiting the area drank 200,000 liters of beer, downed 60,000 hot dogs, 26,246 feet of sausages, and literally one metric ton of ice cream.

We wonder if someone is working on final numbers for official Euro 2012 food stats. We can't wait to see how many beers and sausages will have been served after the final game.
