The Guinness World Records on Tuesday made it known that Fisher from Ireland cooked for 119 hours and 57 minutes at his restaurant in Japan.
Reacting to Fisher’s success, the former record holder, Baci, congratulated Fisher on her official X (formerly Twitter) account on Tuesday.
She wrote, “Huge congratulations to Alan Fisher! 119hrs 57mins is a huge achievement, and I wish him all the best as the new world record holder!”
Fisher secured the title for the longest cooking marathon (individual), setting a new record with an astonishing time of 119 hours and 57 minutes.
This achievement surpassed the previous record held by Nigerian chef Hilda Baci by over 24 hours.
In addition to this, Fisher also claimed the title for the longest baking marathon (individual), clocking in at 47 hours and 21 minutes, surpassing the previous record held by Wendy Sandner from the USA, who had a time of 31 hours and 16 minutes.
Fisher took on both challenges consecutively, spending over 160 hours in the kitchen with just a little over a day of rest in between the two record-breaking attempts.
In another post, Hilda Baci showed how happy she was to have been the holder of the world record, and thanked her supporters.
