Chef Abdul-Razak Faila from Ghana accomplished a remarkable feat by setting a new Guinness World Record in a cook-a-thon, clocking in an impressive 227 hours and 10 seconds.
Aiming for an extraordinary milestone of 240 hours, the determined chef relentlessly worked alongside her devoted team, surpassing expectations by completing this incredible task 13 hours ahead of schedule.
In the closing hour, she prepared a pot of jollof rice, intending to share it with the substantial crowd gathered at the Modern City Hotel in Tamale, symbolizing solidarity and celebration.
Malik Eric, her sous-chef, helped her with the 10-day project, which got underway at midnight on New Year’s Day.
As such, she cooked an amazing 195 meals.
Chef Faila not only wowed the audience with her culinary prowess but also demonstrated her charity by delivering hundreds of platters to the poor.
Compared to Irish chef Alan Fisher, who cooked for an incredible 119 hours and 57 minutes, her attempt is 108 hours longer.
With this amazing feat, Chef Faila has broken the record as the first Ghanaian chef to finish a record-breaking cooking marathon.
She also has a chance to set a new Guinness World Record by smashing the record for the most meals cooked and plates served.
When her attempt at cooking was met with applause and cheers, particularly from her beloved husband, Captain Reginald Agyei, she grew agitated.
Chef Faila’s unshakable commitment to and affection for her craft have not only delighted taste buds but also set a new standard for culinary skills.
