Alan Fisher (Ireland), the owner and chef of a restaurant in Japan, has broken two Guinness World Records linked to cooking.
First and foremost, he holds the record for the longest cooking marathon (individual) with a time of 119 hours and 57 minutes. That is more than 24 hours longer than the previous record held by Hilda Baci, a Nigerian cook.
Alan then set the record for the longest baking marathon (individual), clocking in at 47 hours and 21 minutes. Wendy Sandner (USA) held the previous record with a time of 31 hours and 16 minutes.
What’s more astounding is that Alan did both tries back to back, which means he stayed in the kitchen for nearly 160 hours with only a day off in between!
