An Irish chef based in Japan, Alan Fisher, has broken two Guinness World Records for the longest cooking marathon by an individual.
This was officially confirmed by the Guinness World Records organization on Tuesday through their website.
Alan Fisher embarked on his culinary journey, cooking continuously for an astounding 119 hours and 57 minutes. This incredible feat far exceeded the previous record held by Nigerian chef Hilda Baci, which stood at 93 hours and 11 minutes earlier this year.
Alan then claimed the longest baking marathon (individual), with a time of 47 hours 21 minutes. The previous record holder was Wendy Sandner (USA) with a time of 31 hours 16 minutes.
Recall Hilda, a 26-year-old chef was on Tuesday, June 13, officially declared the Guinness World Record holder for the longest cooking marathon.
Hilda attempted to set a record of 100 hours but almost seven hours were deducted from her final total because she mistakenly took extra minutes for one of her rest breaks early on in the attempt.
She prepared over 100 pots of food during the contest, beating the previous record of 87 hours and 45 minutes set by Lata Tondon (India) in 2019.
