‘Peocio’, the record-breaking mussel in Malamocco


A traditional recipe, competing for the record

Malamocco is getting ready to enter the Guinness Book of Records with an ingredient of the local culinary tradition: we are talking about ‘peocio’, the typical mussel from the lagoon. On the evening of Saturday 22 July, a 200-metre-long table, set up with 400 baking trays of mussels au gratin, will cross the village along the Rio Terà: an opportunity to get together, have fun, but also get in touch with the island’s purest tradition.


All the people of Lido are called upon to contribute to this ambitious project: 400 volunteers are needed, each of whom will dedicate themselves to preparing a pan of 50 mussels au gratin, in order to reach the record of 20000 mussels cooked according to the traditional recipe.


The mussels will then be offered freely to the citizens, and the volunteers will receive a medal commemorating the record event, which will be certified on site by the Official Judge of the Guinness World Records in London.


More information on the initiative and how to join is available on the website of the association Gruppo Bevanda Malamocco.
