Guinness World Record has responded to Faila Abdul-Razak’s record-breaking cook-a-thon after the Ghanaian chef concluded her attempt after cook for 227 hours.

Chef Faila, who attempted to break the current Guinness World Record for longest cooking by Irish chef Alan Fisher with 119 hours, has concluded her attempt after cooking for 10 days straight, accumulating 227 hours.

She topped Alan Fisher by 108 hours, the biggest gap any chef has done in the Guinness World Record book.

Chef Faila ended her attempt on Wednesday, January 10, 2024, by wrapping herself in the flag of Ghana and saluting her supporters who sang the National Anthem of Ghana in one spirit to end her feat.

The official X (formerly Twitter) account of the Guinness World Record responded to Chef Faila’s attempt: “We look forward to reviewing her evidence!”

Chef Faila will also join Dorcus Mirembe, a.k.a Mama D, a Ugandan lady who attempted the GWR cookathon for an impressive 144 hours (6 days) from December 23rd to 28th, 2023, surpassing the previous record of 119 hours, 57 minutes, and 16 seconds set by Alan Fisher.
