Fisher, an owner and chef of a restaurant in Japan, also claimed the longest baking marathon (individual) record which was previously held by Wendy Sandner of the United States with a time of 31 hours and 16 minutes.

The prestigious body shared what made Fisher's record impressive.

"What's even more impressive is that Alan took on both attempts back to back, meaning he was at work in the kitchen for over 160 hours with just over a day of rest in between!"

Fisher's announcement as the new record holder stunned Nigeria as Hilda spent over N80 million for her cook-a-thon.
