Chef Hilda Baci, the former Guinness World Record holder for the longest cooking marathon by an individual, has congratulated Alan Fisher, the Irish Chef who emerged as the latest winner and title holder.

Fisher, an Irish-born owner and chef of a restaurant in Japan, toppled Baci, the renowned Nigerian chef, as the individual with the world’s longest cooking marathon record, according to the Guinness World Records (GWR).

Announcing the new record on X on Tuesday, the GWR officials said that Fisher has marked a significant milestone in the culinary world by breaking not one but two cooking-related GWR titles during his remarkable feat.

“First, he secured the title for the longest cooking marathon (individual) by clocking an impressive time of 119 hours and 57 minutes. This extraordinary duration surpassed the previous record held by Hilda Baci, making Fisher the new titleholder in this category,” the statement said.

Following his triumph in the cooking marathon, Fisher went on to claim the title for the longest baking marathon (individual). He achieved this feat with a remarkable time of 47 hours and 21 minutes, surpassing the previous record set by Wendy Sandner (USA) at 31 hours and 16 minutes.

GWR officials acknowledged Fisher’s exceptional culinary skills and endurance, recognizing his dedication and perseverance throughout the gruelling marathons.

Reacting to Fisher’s success, Baci congratulated Alan on her X account on Tuesday.

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!”
