All these ingredients were processed by the Executive Chefs from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM on November 7, 2023, resulting in a chain of Tempe Mendoan that stretched for 532 meters.
The certificate and MURI record medals were presented in the Ballroom of the Aston Inn Cilacap hotel by Sri Widayati, MURI Representative.
