Chefs Association of Ghana disowns Chef Smith, says ‘he’s not our member’

In an interview with GHone TV, Peter Agborvi stated, “We contacted his team to register with us because he was using our logo during his cook-a-thon, but he didn’t.”

This disclosure has raised questions about the legitimacy of Chef Smith’s affiliation with the association and his overall professional standing within the culinary community in Ghana.

However, in an official response email, Guinness World Records clarified the situation, stating: “No, this is not true at all. He does not hold the GWR title, and that is not our certificate. The current and true record holder is: The longest cooking marathon (individual) is 119 hr 57 min 16 sec and was achieved by Alan Fisher (Ireland) in Matsue, Shimane, Japan, from 28 September to 3 October 2023.”

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

The Chefs Association of Ghana maintains strict membership requirements, and the use of their logo signifies endorsement and adherence to their standards. Chef Smith’s failure to register has led to concerns about his representation of the association during his publicised cook-a-thon events.
