Hello all,
--"What's the longest you've gone without cooking?'
--"Next week will make it three weeks"
If I ask question "what's the longest..." other way "How longest you've gone without cooking?", is it grammatically right?
Many thanks :)

    I googled, and I found there are a few links where they go "How longest.....", so is it they made mistakes or it fine putting this way? Thank you all again :)

    No, this is incorrect. You would not use this phrase. There are actually only two returns for that phrase (the rest of the hits don't have that exact phrase; both words just appear somewhere on the page). One is a headline, so words have been left out of the sentence, and the other is incorrect.
