Tope Maggie, a Nigerian chef from Ogbomoso, is currently on a mission to surpass Irish chef Alan Fisher in a 200-hour cooking marathon.
This challenge follows Alan Fisher‘s recent Guinness World Records achievement, where he surpassed Nigeria’s chef Hilda Baci as the longest cooking record holder.
Guinness World Records officially declared Alan Fisher as the new titleholder for the longest cooking marathon (individual), completing an impressive 119 hours and 57 minutes.
This exceeded the previous record held by Nigerian chef Hilda Baci.
Fisher also claimed the longest baking marathon (individual) title, clocking in at 47 hours and 21 minutes, surpassing the previous record set by Wendy Sandner from the USA.
Now, just days after Alan Fisher’s record-breaking feat, Tope Maggie is set to cook for an astonishing 200 hours, aiming to surpass Fisher’s 119 hours and 57 minutes.
The culinary rivalry continues as Nigerian chefs strive for culinary excellence on the global stage.
