On Sunday, August 18, at Kenya Bay Beach Resort in Mombasa, Kenya’s chef Maliha Mohammed was crowned the winner of Guinness World Record after she cooked for 75 hours non stop. She beat the 68 hour 30 minute record held by Rickey Lumpkin from California in the United States of America (USA).
According to CGTN, early in May, 2019 Maliha began her quest to have her name in the Guinness Book of World Records. Mohammed, a mother of two, conducted her first trial at Technical University of Mombasa (TUM) by cooking 100 recipes in 36-hour non-stop over the weekend.
In July, Mohammed began the second trial of 200 recipes for 54 hours before going for the final competition on August 12 which will be supervised by officials from the Guinness World Record.
With a support team of 40 individuals working in shifts of 10, Mohammed had previously expressed confidence that she was bringing the record home.
She finally managed to achieve her goal after she prepared 400 recipes of both local and international cuisines to emerge top in the cooking marathon.
