Winnie Odinga is celebrating Chef Mahlia as she breaks new home-cooking record. Mahlia had aimed to set a new Guinness World Record for the longest home-cooking marathon at 90 hours.
Odinga, who dropped in on the chef celebrated her on Instagram saying, “History in the making! Chef Mahlia has already thrown down a world record! Now let’s get to 90 hours just to make the point.”
The previous record for a home-cooking marathon was set by US-based chef Rickey Lumpkin at 68 hours, 30 minutes, and 1 second in 2018. By Monday morning, Ms Mohammed had already been cooking for more than the record of 68 hours, 30 minutes and one second.
While Chef Mahlia had announced her intentions earlier this year, shortly after Hilda Baci set the Guinness World Record for marathon cooking with 93 hours 11 minutes, she says the record she is pursuing differs from the one set by the Nigerian chef.
“I will be cooking nonstop for the longest home kitchen cooking marathon. That is a different title from what Chef Hilda was cooking,” she said on her YouTube channel.
Mahlia’s efforts still need to be certified by the Guinness World Records organisation before she can officially unseat the current title holder, Rickey Lumpkin.
This is Mahila’s third attempt at setting the record, which she has been streaming live on her TikTok channel.
