Alan Fisher, an Irish chef and restaurant owner, has officially surpassed Hilda Baci, a Nigerian chef, to secure two Guinness World Records. Fisher now holds the record for the longest cooking marathon for an individual, having cooked for an astonishing 119 hours and 57 minutes, exceeding Baci’s previous record by more than 24 hours.
In addition to this impressive culinary feat, Fisher also clinched the record for the longest baking marathon for an individual, with a remarkable time of 47 hours and 21 minutes. This accomplishment supersedes the previous record held by Wendy Sandner of the USA, which stood at 31 hours and 16 minutes.
Guinness World Records proudly announced Fisher’s extraordinary achievements through its official channels on Tuesday. The organization posted on its social media account, “Nigerian cooking queen Hilda Baci has been dethroned. Alan Fisher from Ireland cooked for an incredible 119 hours and 57 minutes at his restaurant in Japan.”
Furthermore, Guinness World Records commended Fisher’s exceptional dedication, stating, “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.”
