Chef Adeola Adeyeye, who is on a mission to break the new Guinness World Record (GWR) in cooking marathon, got approval from the GWR, her manager has said.
Adeyeye, 26, began her 150-hour cook-a-thon on June 30 in Ile-Oluji, headquarters of the Ile-Oluji/Okeigbo Local Council of Ondo State. She is scheduled to wrap it up on July 6.
Her manager Ayotunde Fagbamiye said he was optimistic Adeyeye, also known as Chef Deo, would break the record for the longest cooking marathon currently held by compatriot Hilda Baci.
“She got the approval to embark on the cook-a-thon from Guinness World Records. We were very happy when we received the mail that she could proceed to break the record for a cooking marathon for an individual person,” Mr Fagbamiye said.
“She is energetic, she is ready to cook for 150 hours. She is passionate about it and determined. I’m very sure she will make it to the end successfully.”
Food enthusiasts, fellow chefs, and media outlets have flocked to the venue of the cook-a-thon in the Ile Oluji community of Ondo State to witness the record-breaking event.
According to the GWR, there is no time restriction on any attempt to set a new world record.
