A chef from Uganda has become the third person to break the Guinness World Record for the Longest Cooking Marathon.
Ugandan chef Dorcus Mirembe, popularly known as Mama D, broke the record set by the Irish chef, Alan Fisher, in November.
The Irishman cooked for nearly 120 hours.
Mama D’s current cooking time is 124 hours and counting. Mama D is still cooking and plans to cook till the new year. If she succeeds, she would have cooked non-stop for 9 days.
In May this year, Nigerian chef, Hilda Baci, cooked for 93 hours, 11 minutes. Then, Alan Fisher dethroned her to become the record holder in November.
Though Mama D, the Uganda chef, has broken Fisher’s record, her status as the Longest Cooking Marathon record holder will not be official until she is certified by the Guinness World Record.
