Fort Valley cooks world's largest peach cobbler

It's a Peach County tradition.

Every year, Fort Valley celebrates the Georgia Peach Festival by cooking up the world's largest Peach Cobbler.

Peopled lined Church Street, eager to get a taste of the cobbler, which measured 11 feet long, 5 feet wide, and 6 inches deep. Volunteers started working on the giant desert around 3 a.m. Saturday morning.

Rich Bennett has been the head chef of the world's largest peach cobbler since 2006. He says the best part is serving the community.

"It's a lot of work, for sure, and a lot of people and organizations have come together to put this together for us, but it's a lot of fun too," says Bennett.

What goes in the world's largest peach cobbler?

150 pounds of sugar, 150 pounds of flour, 32 gallons of milk, 60 pounds of butter (down from the usual 90 pounds) and 75 gallons of peaches from Lane Southern Orchards and Pearson Farms.
