Etihad Airways Chef Breaks Guinness World Record on Everest

Posted 2 July 2018 · Add Comment

Etihad Airways Inflight Chef, Sanjay Thakur, has broken world record for creating and serving dinner to guests at the highest pop-up restaurant in the world, at Everest Advanced High Camp, reports Afritraveller

 

Accompanied by fellow chef Soundararajan Palaniappan, Thakur completed the grueling mission earlier this month, reaching the high camp and serving the meal at an altitude of 5,585 metres above sea level.

Thakur’s record-breaking achievements were celebrated at Etihad’s headquarters recently with a special ceremony attended by Etihad senior management and staff.

The world record-holding chefs prepared for months to make the attempt, including acclimatisation and fitness training, and complex logistics to ensure they had the permit, gear and transportation they needed to prepare the meal and welcome guests.

In addition to breaking a world record, the goal of the challenge was to raise awareness of sustainability in the region, with all proceeds donated to Altruistic Hands, a Nepal-based charity.
