Chef Faila’s Guinness World Record Cook-a-thon Attempt Disqualified

Ghanaian chef, Failatu Abdul-Razak, fell short in her bid to break the world record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual, according to a press release on her Instagram page. Her goal was to surpass the official 119-hour record set by Alan Fisher. However, the attempt did not meet all the strict guidelines set by the Guinness World Records (GWR), specifically regarding rest breaks.

In a statement, the Records Management Team cited a violation of the rest break rules, leading to the disqualification of her attempt. Despite this setback, GWR praised Chef Faila for her effort and encouraged her to pursue future record attempts.

Expressing gratitude for the support from Ghanaians and others during her attempt, Chef Faila stated, “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.”

Chef Faila began her GWR longest cooking marathon on January 1st and concluded on January 10th at the Modern City Hotel in Tamale. She completed a 227-hour cook-a-thon attempt after 10 days in the kitchen, showcasing exceptional skills and preparing a diverse array of dishes amid a rich display of culture from the people of the Northern Region.
