In life, no one holds a forever record. Instead, we keep pushing and inspiring each other on our way to greatness.

Just like an Irish chef recently cooked longer than Hilda Baci’s record in the Guinness Book of Records.


Irish Chef Alan Fisher Breaks Hilda Baci’s GWR For Longest Cooking Hours

Alan Fisher broke the longest cooking marathon for an individual after clocking in a time of 119 hours and 57 minutes.


His feat is 24 hours longer than the previous record held by Nigeria’s Hilda Baci.

Guinness World Records made the announcement on the X account on Tuesday, November 7, 2023.


Apart from the longest cooking marathon, Alan also broke the longest baking marathon (individual).

He had a time of 47 hours and 21 minutes, while the previous record holder was Wendy Sandner (USA) with a time of 31 hours and 16 minutes, the Guinness World Records added.

Alan took on both attempts back-to-back, meaning he was at work in the kitchen for over 160 hours with just over a day of rest in between.


Alan Fisher cooked and baked for nine days and made 357 kg worth of soda bread and 590 kg worth of dishes (3,360 portions consisting of 32 recipes) during those times.

His feat came almost five months after the Guinness World Record confirmed Hilda’s adventurous cooking.


The Nigerian broke the 87-hour and 45-minute record held by India’s Lata Tondon since 2019.
