Chef Smith Extends Cooking Marathon to 1200 Hours, Calls for Public Support

Chef Smith, also known as Millennium Chef, is extending his cooking marathon to an impressive 1200 hours, aiming for the Guinness World Record for the longest individual cooking session.

Initially planning for a 360-hour cookathon, equivalent to 15 days, Chef Smith is now on a challenging 50-day journey since starting on February 1 at the Amadia Shopping Center in Spintex, Accra. However, the expected support hasn’t come through, prompting Chef Smith and his team to ask for additional backing.

While there was strong initial support for Afua Asantewaa and Chef Failatu Abdul-Razak in their singing and cooking marathons, enthusiasm has waned. Some attribute this decline to the timing of the event, while others think the cooking category has become somewhat repetitive due to frequent attempts.

Chef Smith was inspired by Hilda Baci’s record-breaking cooking marathon, and despite facing approval challenges, the event has been rescheduled for February 2024 after unsuccessful attempts in July and September 2023. Chef Smith aims to surpass Beauty Obasuyi’s 448-hour record.

While waiting for confirmation from Guinness World Records, it’s important to note that Chef Alan Fisher currently holds the record with 119 hours and 57 minutes.
