The result was a 102-foot turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato and cheese wrap. “The previous record was 30 feet, so this should secure the one prepared at the Victoria House for a while,” said Chef Mary G. Trometter, assistant professor of hospitality management/culinary arts (who also took these photos). Pieces of the wrap were sold to benefit Union-Snyder Habitat for Humanity.
