Alan Fisher, an Irish restaurant owner and chef based in Japan, has broken two Guinness World Records relating to cooking marathons.
He first set a new record for the “longest cooking marathon (individual)” by an astonishing 119 hours and 57 minutes. This feat surpassed the previous record held by Nigerian chef Hilda Baci by more than 24 hours.
According to the statement on the GWR official website, following this remarkable accomplishment, Fisher then tackled the “longest baking marathon (individual)” and succeeded in setting a new record with a time of 47 hours and 21 minutes. The previous record was held by Wendy Sandner from the United States, with 31 hours and 16 minutes.
Fisher took on both record-breaking attempts back-to-back, enduring a gruelling schedule that saw him in the kitchen for over 160 hours, with just over a day of rest between both feats.
