Nigerian chef Tope Maggie has surpassed Irish chef Alan Fisher’s Guinness World record with a 200-hour cook-a-thon.
The record-breaking attempt commenced on November 9th and concluded in the early hours of November 18th.
The video evidence, shared by Oyo Affairs on Twitter, captured the exhilarating moment as Tope and his team celebrated their monumental achievement at exactly 3 am.
If confirmed by Guinness World Records, this will make it the second time a Nigerianhas heldd the record for the longest cooking marathon. Chef Hilda Bacci, who previously held the record, was recently dethroned by Alan Fisher.
Tope Maggie, a graduate of Federal Polytechnic, Ede, Osun State, and manager of a chain of restaurants in Ogbomoso, inherited his culinary prowess from his mother, under whom he learned the art of cooking. His name “Maggie” isn’t just a moniker; it’s a symbol of culinary excellence.
