Chef Smith from Ghana “does not hold the GWR title for the longest cooking marathon” and says that his certificate is fake. It has been confirmed by Guinness World Records that

There has been a lot of praise and celebration for Chef Smith, who made headlines recently for supposedly breaking a culinary record.

But questions about the veracity of his claim started to arise, which prompted Guinness World Records to look into it.

Guinness World Records explained the situation in an official reply to an email from GHone TV, saying: “No, this is not true at all. That is not our certificate, and he does not possess the GWR title. The actual and current owner of the record is: Alan Fisher (Ireland) completed the longest cooking marathon (individual) in Matsue, Shimane, Japan, from September 28 to October 3, 2023, clocking in at 119 hours, 57 minutes, and 16 seconds.” The Ghanaian culinary community as whole, as well as some of Chef Smith’s supporters, are shocked and disappointed by this revelation. His alleged accomplishment had been widely hailed as major turning point for the nation’s culinary arts.

The Guinness World Records purported to have given Ghanaian chef Ebenezer smith, also referred to as Chef Smith, certificate for breaking the record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual on July 2, 2024.

On Tuesday, July 2, Chef Smith made the announcement during a press conference held at the La Palm Beach Hotel.

Chef Smith’s cook-a-thon began on February 1, 2024, and ended on March 6, 2024, having completed 820 hours of cooking—far less than his original goal of 1,200 hours.

“The longest cooking marathon (individual) is 802 hours and 25 minutes and was achieved by Ebenezer smith (Ghanaian) in Spintex, Accra, Ghana. From February 1 to March 6, 2024,” the record certificate inscription states.

But not long after declaring his Guinness Record achievement, he was taken into custody by the La police on suspicion of “defrauding one of the sponsors, Amadia Shopping Mall, of his cooking marathon of about GHC350,000.”
