Records are made to be broken, they say! An Irish chef, Alan Fisher, has done the unimaginable after breaking not only Hilda Baci’s record but another record for baking making it two Guinness World Records.

Fisher who is based in Japan, cooked continuously for 119 hours and 57 minutes, surpassing the previous record of 93 hours and 11 minutes set by Nigerian chef Hilda Baci in May.

The Irishman also claimed the record for the longest baking marathon, baking for 47 hours and 21 minutes, beating the prior record of 31 hours and 16 minutes.

The record body made the announcement on its website today, November 7.

Remarkably, Fisher undertook both record attempts back-to-back, spending over 160 hours straight in the kitchen.

The Tokyo resident achieved these feats at his restaurant Kyojin Stewhouse, where he serves traditional Irish meals. Fisher took on the challenge to recover from pandemic hardships that nearly shuttered his business.

To set the record, the chef prepared over 550 kg of food and 3,360 portions of 32 Irish recipes. Fisher said support from his local community kept him going through fatigue and hallucinations.

“I was representing myself, my family, and Irish food, and sharing our story. I couldn’t give up. That was the only option,” he stated. Guinness praised Fisher’s “incredible feat of endurance.”

Reacting to the news on Twitter, previous record holder, Hilda Baci congratulated Fisher and revealed that she was happy to have held the position.
