A Kenyan chef in Mombasa has broken the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking competition, individual category, after completing cooking for 75 hours straight.
Maliha Mohammed, 36, started cooking on Thursday, August 15, at exactly 10am to Sunday, August 18.
The self-taught chef has beaten the record set by Rickey Lumpkin of California, US, who cooked for 68 hours, 30 minutes, 1 second in December 2018.
The chef who has perfected her skills from watching Youtube videos, is the first African female to clench the tittle.
“I thank God, my family, Pwani Oil Company and everyone who contributed to my success of bringing this title home. I am happy to be the first female chef in Africa to earn this title,” she said after being crowned winner
Mahila prepared a total of 400 cuisines that were later donated to charity as part of her initiative to raise awareness and to feed the less fortunate in Mombasa County.
Mahila’s first attempt at the tittle was in May this year which saw her clock 36 hours with a hundred dishes then later made 200 dishes in 54 hours in July this year.
