Take 800 pounds of chicken, 500 pounds of onions and add carrots, bok choy and peanuts. And you've got the world's largest stir fry. Yes, the people at Guinness World Records keep track of this. The frying pan at the University of Massachusetts was 14 feet across.

DAVID GREENE, host:

Good morning. I'm David Greene.

It's MORNING EDITION.
