The attempt by Ghanaian chef Failatu Abdul-Razak to break the record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual has failed.

Her goal was to surpass Alan Fisher’s official record of 119 hours.

However, Chef Faila revealed that her attempt did not meet some of the strict guidelines set by the Guinness World Records (GWR) in a press release that was posted on her Instagram page on Sunday, March 3. 

A portion of the statement said, “A statement from the Records Management Team cited a violation of the rest break rules, resulting in an unsuccessful attempt.”

Notwithstanding the obstacle, GWR congratulated Chef Faila and urged her to go for more records.

Chef Faila expresses gratitude to Ghanaians and everyone who supported her during her attempt.

“Although this attempt did not result in a world record, it has been an invaluable experience. I am proud of the dedication and hard work put forth, and I am committed to continuing to push boundaries in the culinary world,” she added. 

Chef Faila began her longest cooking marathon for GWR on January 1st and concluded it at the Modern City Hotel in Tamale on January 10th. 

She spent ten days in the kitchen and finished her attempt at a 227-hour cook-a-thon.

Failatu demonstrated remarkable culinary prowess during the long cooking session, crafting a wide variety of dishes in the midst of a vibrant cultural exhibition by the Northern Region’s populace.
