Kenyan Chef Looks To Break Guinness World Record

Kenyan chef Maliha Mohammed is on the brink of breaking the record for the longest home kitchen cooking marathon.

Chef Mohammed began the fete on Friday, August 11th and by yesterday night she had already clocked 68 hours and 30 minutes.

Maliha is aiming to replace American Rickey Lumpkin of California, who cooked for 68 hours, 30 minutes, and 1 second in December 2018.

As of Monday, August 14th, Maliha Mohammed had already surpassed Lumpkin’s record while also setting new a Guinness World Record.

The cooking marathon took place in Maliha’s own home kitchen, where she prepared a variety of Swahili dishes.

After the Guinness World Record confirms her win, she has revealed that she will now seek to challenge for the title of individual longest cooking marathon.

Nigerian Chef Hilda Baci currently holds the record (individual longest cooking marathon) after successfully cooking for 93 hours non-stop.

This isn’t the first instance where Maliha Mohammed has seized headlines for her culinary marathons.

In 2019, she earned her place in the Guinness Book of World Records by cooking non-stop for an astonishing 75 hours.

Maliha will challenge Baci’s title in November. She aims to be among a few individuals who hold two Guinness World Records.
