19 November 2019 Guinness World Record for Longest Cooking Marathon Won by Lata Tandon

Lata Tandon, a chef from a small town Rewa in Madhya Pradesh, recently won the coveted Guinness World Title for the longest time spent cooking. Chef Tandon cooked for 87 hours 45 minutes non-stop setting the new record. With this feat, she also became the first woman to achieve this milestone in the world. The alumni of Chef Academy of London, Lata has won several accolades in the culinary world including winner International Indian Chef of the year in 2018.

The successful event saw Chef Lata cook more than 1,600 KGs food grains, 400 vada-pavs, 250 sandwiches and a host of other local delicacies over a span of 4 days. The food was served to over 20,000 visitors who attended the event including children from orphanages and blind schools and members of old age homes. An environmentalist at heart, Chef Lata also used this platform to encourage people to purchase and plant over 17,000 saplings.

Commenting on winning the International honor, Chef Lata Tandon said, “I have been fascinated with cooking since childhood and am fortunate to be surrounded by family and friends who have encouraged me to turn my passion into a career. While I love cooking traditional dishes, I won’t define myself as a conservative chef. I love exploring regional flavours, cooking techniques and finding unexplored ingredients from different parts of India. My vision is to take these unusual hyper local ingredients and create dishes that change the limited perception of Indian cuisine at a global level.”

The longest cooking marathon was previously held by Rickey Lumpkin from Los Angeles, USA at 68 hours 30 minutes 01 second.

Dear Readers,

Greetings,

Better Kitchen is four years old and we are proud that we have achieved a lot more than we set out to achieve.

Each year and each issue of Better Kitchen provided us the opportunity to improve our content and give our niche readers information, insights and inputs to understand the wonderful world of kitchen... from the professional chefs and the technical staff who support the chefs in their work by laying out the infrastructure required in modern cooking and preservation of food and the ingredients that go into food preparation and processing.

From the very beginning it was our aim to make Better Kitchen a vehicle to spotlight the splendid work that goes on behind the scenes in the famed hotels and restaurants that play a significant role in drawing tourists from all over the world to India’s metropolises. And it is not just that. In a country like ours which boasts of a cultural diversity that stuns the world there is an incredible diversity in the cuisine that each region proudly offers and cherishes as a part of its tradition and cultural heritage.

We have sincerely tried to take our readers on trips to the regional kitchens through articles and features that highlight the cuisines of different regions.

Every issue we have brought out has had a focus on an aspect of the food industry that has attained a status of its own among the major industries of the world’s economy.

In this issue, besides a variety of general articles, we have spotlighted the importance of purchasing. Even in our homes the core value of a good, healthy meal that arrives on the dining table is the painstaking purchases made by the lady of the house who goes to markets and supermarkets to get the best raw material for the cooking.

In a larger sense it is the responsibility of qualified people who manage the purchase of raw material and a gamut of requirements for the kitchen to ensure that the food is not only high on quality but also safe for consumption.

As always the content of this issue is sourced from professionals and experts.

And a big Thank You for your constant support and motivation.

We have miles to go and we have ample confidence and energy because we have your support and appreciation.

Happy reading.
