In a remarkable culinary feat, Nigerian chef Hilda Effiong Bassey, popularly known as Hilda Baci, has officially been dethroned from her title as the Guinness World Record holder for the longest cooking marathon.
This momentous announcement was made by the Guinness World Records (GWR) on Tuesday, as it introduced Alan Fisher from Ireland as the new record-holder, taking the culinary world by storm.
Alan Fisher, who is both an owner and chef of a restaurant in Japan, has accomplished a remarkable double win.
The GWR stated, “Alan Fisher (Ireland), an owner and chef of a restaurant in Japan, has broken two cooking-related Guinness World Records titles.”
The GWR announcement continued, “First up, he’s claimed the longest cooking marathon (individual) after clocking in a time of 119 hours 57 minutes.
That is more than 24 hours longer than the previous record held by Nigerian chef Hilda Baci.”
The astounding achievement didn’t end there. Alan Fisher also set a new record for the longest baking marathon (individual), with an incredible time of 47 hours 21 minutes.
The previous record holder for this title was Wendy Sandner from the USA, with a time of 31 hours 16 minutes.
What makes this feat even more impressive is that Alan took on both these incredible cooking and baking challenges consecutively, amassing over 160 hours in the kitchen, with just over a day of rest in between the two marathons.
Hilda Baci had previously held the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon, being declared the title holder in June. This recognition came after a thorough review of all the evidence by GWR.
The 26-year-old Nigerian chef embarked on her culinary journey on Thursday, May 11, and continued tirelessly through Monday, May 15, during which she managed to prepare over 100 pots of food.
It’s worth noting that Hilda Baci initially aimed to set a record of 100 hours, but she faced a setback during her attempt.
GWR stated that nearly seven hours were deducted from her final total because she mistakenly counted extra minutes for one of her early rest breaks.
Despite this, Hilda had already broken the previous record of 87 hours 45 minutes, which was set by Lata Tondon of India in 2019.
Alan Fisher’s extraordinary accomplishment in the world of culinary records not only highlights his dedication and skill but also reflects the ever-evolving landscape of cooking marathons.
As the torch passes from Hilda Baci to Alan Fisher, the culinary world eagerly anticipates what the future holds for these remarkable chefs and their enduring pursuit of excellence in the kitchen.
