A Kenyan chef has set a new world record for the longest time spent cooking, after cooking for 75 hours non-stop.
Maliha Mohammed began her attempt on Thursday at 10:00 local time in the coastal city of Mombasa.
She ended her marathon at a local restaurant on Sunday at 13:03 local time.
If verified by Guinness World Records, she will have beaten the official record set by a US cook, Rickey Lumpkin – he cooked for 68 hours, 30 minutes and one second in April 2018.
Ms Mohammed prepared 400 dishes – including local and international recipes – most of which she offered to shelters and orphanages.
During her epic time in the kitchen, she only rested for 30 minutes every 12 hours.
Afterwards she told journalists:
“You personified the true spirit of endurance and resilience in an African woman, in braving the heat and daring sleep for over 75 hours while showcasing your culinary skills.”
