The record holder of the longest cooking marathon, Nigerian chef Hilda Baci, has been overthrown by Irish restaurant owner Alan Fisher.
Fisher’s time of 119 hours 57 minutes surpassed the record for the longest cooking marathon completed by one individual.
His achievement surpassed Baci’s previous record by almost twenty-four hours.
With a time of 47 hours and 21 minutes, Fisher, a chef who runs his restaurant in Japan, also holds the record for the longest baking marathon for an individual.
With a time of 31 hours 16 minutes, Wendy Sandner (USA) held the previous record.
On Tuesday, Guinness World Records made the accomplishment public on the X account.
GWR announced, “Nigerian culinary queen Hilda Baci has been dethroned.”
It further said, “Alan Fisher from Ireland cooked at his restaurant in Japan for an amazing 119 hours and 57 minutes.”
Speaking more on the achievement, GWR said, “What was more impressive is that Alan took on both attempts back to back, meaning he was at work in the kitchen for over 160 hours with just over a day of rest in between.”
