Chef Maliha Mohammad, a Mombasa-based chef, made an attempt to break the record for the longest cooking time by an individual at Kenya Bay Beach Resort in Mombasa, on Sunday, August 18, 2019.
However, it was not acknowledged by Guinness World Record, and Indian chef, Lata Tondon, proceeded to break the record with a cooking time of 87 hours, 45 min, in September 2019.
