Beauty Obasuyi Sets a 448-Hour World Record for the Longest Cooking Marathon!
Nigerian-Canadian entrepreneur Beauty Obasuyi, the driving force behind Naija Jollof, made culinary history with an extraordinary 448-hour cooking marathon. From January 10th to January 28th, 2024, the bustling kitchen of Naija Jollof, situated at 295A Queen St E unit 38B, emerged as a beacon of culinary excellence and determination.
What was initially slated as an eight-day challenge evolved into a remarkable testament to human resilience and culinary skill. Inspired by culinary luminaries like Hilda Baci of Lagos, Nigeria, who cooked for 100 hours, surpassing Lata Tondon’s record of 87 hours and 45 minutes, and Alan Fisher from Ireland, who extended the record to 119 hours and 57 minutes, Beauty Obasuyi embarked on a mission to redefine culinary boundaries.
Amidst her journey, notable figures such as Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown, alongside numerous community leaders, graced the venue to offer their unwavering support for the chef throughout the cook-a-thon.
Despite Ghanaian chef Failatu Abdul-Razak’s valiant attempt at a 227-hour cooking marathon, Beauty Obasuyi surpassed all previous achievements, setting a new standard of excellence with her unprecedented 448-hour culinary feat.
Throughout the cook-a-thon, politicians, including Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown, and numerous community leaders, expressed their unwavering support for the chef.
As we eagerly await confirmation from the Guinness World Records (GWR), Beauty’s attempt will undergo review before the record is officially confirmed. Congratulations to her on this remarkable achievement, which has left an indelible mark on the culinary world!
