Chef Smith to Announce Outcome of Cook-a-thon Attempt Today

Ghanaian chef Ebenezer Smith, also known as Millennium Chef Smith will in a few minutes announce the outcome of his attempt after confirming he had received correspondence from the Guinness World Record (GWR).

In a message shared on his Facebook page, he said the outcome will be made public at a press conference.

“It’s with great pleasure and honour that, we inform the general public and the media of the Press Conference of Millennium Chef Smith as he announces his results from the Guinness World Records for the longest cooking marathon by an individual at La Palm Royal Beach Hotel on Tuesday 2nd July 2024 @ 2: 00 pm.”

He turned on his stove for the culinary challenge at the Amadia Shopping Centre at Spintex in Accra on February 1, 2024, and turned off the stove on March 6, 2024, after cooking for 35 straight days.

He initially advertised a 360-hour cooking marathon but went on to add over 400 hours which runs into some 21 days.

In a Facebook post before noon on March 6 as the country marked the 67th Anniversary celebration, he drew the curtain on the adventure.

Following Chef Failatu Abdul Razak’s failed attempt to break Alan Fisher’s 119 hours 57 minutes record set in November 2023, the anticipation over Chef Smith’s attempt is high.

Millennium Chef Smith, an international executive chef, had his initial applications, motivated by Hilda Bacci’s record, disapproved by the world records keeper, Guinness World Records (GWR).

The intention of Chef Smith goes beyond smashing the record. He intends to restore the record to Africa.

In June, Nigerian chef Hilda Baci extended the world’s longest cooking marathon record to 93 hours and 11 minutes from 87 hours and 45 minutes by India’s Lata Tondon. In November, Chef Fisher extended it to 119 hours 57 minutes.
