Ghanaian chef Failatu Abdul-Razak recently embarked on an ambitious journey to shatter the world record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual. However, her aspirations hit a roadblock as her attempt fell short of meeting the stringent guidelines set by the Guinness Book of World Records (GWR).

Failatu aimed to surpass the official 119-hour record set by Alan Fisher but faced challenges with the rest break rules, as revealed in a press release shared on her Instagram page on Sunday, March 3. The Records Management Team cited this violation, leading to an unsuccessful attempt.

Despite the setback, GWR commended Chef Faila's efforts and encouraged her to pursue future record endeavors.

In response, Failatu expressed gratitude for the overwhelming support from Ghanaians and well-wishers throughout her endeavor. She emphasized the invaluable experience gained from the attempt and affirmed her commitment to pushing boundaries in the culinary sphere.

Failatu commenced her Guinness World Record longest cooking marathon on January 1st, concluding on January 10th at the Modern City Hotel in Tamale. Despite falling short of the record, she completed an impressive 227-hour cook-a-thon over the course of 10 days.
