Chef Hilda Baci has extended her congratulations to Irish Chef Alan Fisher, who has achieved the latest Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon by a single individual.

Guinness World Records announced yesterday that Alan Fisher, hailing from Ireland, cooked for a total of 119 hours and 57 minutes at his restaurant in Japan.

Reacting to Fisher’s success, Baci who is the former record holder, congratulated Alan on her X account on Tuesday.

Reacting to Fisher’s success, Baci, the previous record holder, offered her congratulations to Alan on her X account yesterday.

She wrote, “Huge congratulations to Alan Fisher! 119hrs 57mins is a huge achievement, and I wish him all the best as the new world record holder!”

Alan secured the title for the longest cooking marathon (individual), setting a new record with an astonishing time of 119 hours and 57 minutes.

This achievement surpassed the previous record held by Nigerian chef Hilda Baci by over 24 hours.

In addition to this, Alan also claimed the title for the longest baking marathon (individual), clocking in at 47 hours and 21 minutes, surpassing the previous record held by Wendy Sandner from the USA, who had a time of 31 hours and 16 minutes.

Alan took on both challenges consecutively, spending over 160 hours in the kitchen with just a little over a day of rest in between the two record-breaking attempts.

Nigerian chef Hilda Effiong Bassey, widely recognized as Hilda Baci, has officially lost her title as the Guinness World Record holder for the longest cooking marathon.

Guinness World Records (GWR) confirmed this in a tweet statement on its official website, which was later posted on X.

The tweet announced Alan Fisher as the new record-holder.

“Alan Fisher (Ireland), an owner and chef of a restaurant in Japan, has broken two cooking-related Guinness World Records titles,” the statement read.

“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.

“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.

“What’s even 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!”

Hilda was in June declared the Guinness World Record holder for the longest cooking marathon.

The 26-year-old Nigerian chef began on Thursday, May 11, and continued through Monday, May 15, cooking over 100 pots of food during her four-day kitchen stint.

GWR said that Hilda attempted to set a record of 100 hours, however, 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.

Hilda had broken the previous record of 87 hours 45 minutes which was set by Lata Tondon (India) in 2019.
