Chef Cooks For 53 Hours Straight, Shattering A World Record

It takes a lot of endurance to become a chef. You must be able to stand and cook for hours in hot kitchens until all your dishes are prepped, cooked, plated, and every last customer is served.

In a triumphant account of human achievement, India’s Vishnu Manohar just broke the world record for consecutive hours of cooking, reports GrubStreet. For 53 hours straight, this dude whipped up dishes at a marathon live cooking segment. That means he was on his feet cooking for more than two whole days.

The previous record for cooking nonstop was believed to be 40 hours by a Rhode Island chef back in 2014.

Even after he hit the 53 hour mark, chef Manohar continued to cook for a few more hours just to make up for the 5 minute breaks that the Guinness book of World Records allowed contestants.

Sources say he showed no signs of fatigue, serving plate after plate to entry audience members.

What a champ.
