Food Network Canada star Bob Blumer peels the outer layers of a Walla Walla Sweet Onion on Sunday in an attempt to beat the world record to peel 50 pounds of onions in under three minutes 18 seconds. Blumer did it in two minutes 39 seconds. Assisting Blumer is Chris Fogg of the Whitman College's Bon Appétit food service.
