Nigerian chef Hilda Effiong Bassey, popularly known as Hilda Baci, has been dethroned from her Guinness World Record title for the longest cooking marathon with the Guinness World Records (GWR) officially confirming the change and naming Alan Fisher as the new record holder.
Alan Fisher, an Irish owner and chef of a restaurant in Japan, has broken two cooking-related Guinness World Records titles, first claiming the longest cooking marathon (individual) after clocking in a time of 119 hours 57 minutes which is 24 hours longer than the previous record held by Nigerian chef Hilda Baci.
Alan then claimed the longest baking marathon (individual), with a time of 47 hours 21 minutes beating the previous record holder was Wendy Sandner (USA) with a time of 31 hours 16 minutes taking 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!
Having initially set the record for the longest cooking marathan in June, Hilda Baci cooked continuously for several days, producing over 100 pots of food unable to achieve her original goal of 100 hours due to a deduction which was made from her total time owing to a minor error regarding one of her rest breaks. Up until then, the record was held by Lata Tondon from India who held the record of 87 hours and 45 minutes.
