Ugandan Chef Set To Reclaim Guinness World Record For Longest Cooking Marathon


Ugandan chef Dorcus Basheba Kirabo, better known as Mama D is pushing to reclaim her Guinness World Record for longest cooking time.

The celebrated chef yesterday kicked off a record attempt for the “longest cooking marathon by an individual.”

By Sunday morning, she had clocked just over 24 hours and served several dishes to her fans who gathered to cheer her on at High Note Bar in Kireka.

She appeared in high spirits and was ready to shatter the record.

She will be gunning for 192 hours, spanning seven days from June 1 to June 8, 2024.

“I’m reattempting to break the @GWR for the longest Cookathon by an individual…Come through, eat some nice food, drink some nice drinks and have a great time!” she posted on X.

In December last year, Mama D grabbed the world record after cooking for 114 hours during her highly popularized cookathon in Kampala.

Her record, however, was snatched by Ghana’s Failatu Abdul-Razak who completed 227 hours.

In January this year, Mama D announced that she would give the world record another shot, pending registration and clearance from the Guinness World Records.
