New Guinness World Record holder, Chef Ebenezer Smith has shared lights on what helped him to attain his latest success.

On Tuesday, July 2, 2024, Chef Smith announced at a press conference that the Guinness World Record (GWR) has certified and confirmed him as the new cook-a-thon record holder.

This comes after several months of waiting with bated breath for a decision on his cooking marathon attempt, which spanned three months.

The three-month cook-a-thon attempt culminated in 820 hours of non-stop cooking, from February 1 to March 6, 2024, despite planning to cook for 1200 hours.

But the GWR, after careful assessment of his cooking video footage concluded that he cooked for 802 hours, 25 minutes and six seconds, thereby overtaking Alan Fisher, the Irish who dethroned Nigerian’s Hilda Baci.
