Ghanaian chef ‘Failatu Abdul-Razak’s’ awaits Guinness World Record
Chef Failatu Abdul-Razak of Ghana has gained attention for her efforts to shatter the record for the longest cooking marathon set by the Guinness World Record. Abdul-Razak has been slavishly making regional cuisine on live TV in a hotel in the northern city of Tamale since January 1, 2024. Her objective is to beat Irish chef Alan Fisher’s current record of 119 hours and 57 minutes.
Ghanaians have responded well to Abdul-Razak’s cook-a-thon, sending throngs of celebrities, dignitaries, and regular citizens to the hotel to take in her amazing achievement and savour the cuisine. The Chefs Association of Ghana’s president, Isaac Sackey, acknowledged Abdul-Razak’s accomplishment and stressed the need of paying tribute to her for bringing attention to Ghana.
According to the most recent sources, Abdul-Razak may have broken the previous record by cooking for more than 227 hours. At the end of her incredible effort, she gave an emotional salute to the audience while wearing the national flag to cap off the cook-a-thon. Her group intends to formally validate the evidence by submitting it to Guinness World Records.
It is noteworthy that after Nigerian chef Hilda Baci dethroned Alan Fisher in May of last year, West Africa has witnessed a spike in attempts to set world records in a number of different categories. Ghanaians are excited and looking forward to Abdul-Razak’s bid to break the record, and they have gone to social media to support and encourage her as she pursues culinary history.
Abdul-Razak’s cook-a-thon has already had a big impact while she waits for certification from the Guinness World Records organisation. It has shown her commitment, talent, and will as a Ghanaian chef. Her accomplishment showcases Ghana’s culinary talent and acts as an inspiration for budding chefs.
In conclusion, as she attempts to shatter the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon, Failatu Abdul-Razak’s ongoing cook-a-thon has captured the interest of Ghanaians and people worldwide.
