Chef Faila’s cook-a-thon attempt unsuccessful

Ghanaian chef, Failatu Abdul-Razak’s attempt to break the world record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual has been unsuccessful.

She had intended to beat the official 119-hour record set by Alan Fisher.

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

Regardless of the setback, GWR commended Chef Faila and encouraged her to pursue future record attempts.

Meanwhile, Chef Faila says she is thankful for the support shown her by Ghanaians and everyone who rallied behind 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 commenced her GWR longest cooking marathon on the 1st of January and ended on the 10th of January at the Modern City Hotel in Tamale.

She completed a 227-hour cook-a-thon attempt after 10 days in the kitchen.

Throughout the marathon cooking session, Failatu showcased exceptional skills, preparing a diverse array of dishes amid a rich display of culture by the people of the Northern Region.
