Met School student hopes to set cooking record

Ben Perry

Ben Perry of The Met School in Providence is planning to cook for 40 hours straight to break a record as part of his senior project.

There are rules from ?Guinness World Records? and procedures he has to follow. He does have some help, but not much.

The ingredients have been donated and the meals are going to those in need.

"It's not that he's just constantly cooking for 40 hours straight. He's also preparing for hundreds of people at the Amos House and Hope," said David Cass, a teacher at the Met School.

Perry began Monday night and he wraps up at 4 p.m. Wednesday, if he makes it to the record.
