Lagos, June 13, 20233 -Guinness World Records (GWR) on Tuesday officially acknowledged Hilda Effiong Bassey, popularly known as Hilda Baci, as a new record holder for the longest cooking by an individual.

The GWR said in a statement that: “Following a thorough review of all the evidence, Guinness World Records can now confirm that Hilda Effiong Bassey, better known as Hilda Baci, has officially broken the record for the longest cooking marathon (individual) with a time of 93 hours 11 minutes.”

A tweet on their official Twitter page also reads: “After reviewing all the footage, we’re delighted to announce that Hilda Baci is the new record holder for the longest cooking marathon (individual).

“Watch the video to find out the official time we’ve awarded Hilda and read the full explanation below.

“The 26-year-old Nigerian chef began on Thursday 11 May and continued through to Monday 15 May, cooking over 100 pots of food during her four-day kitchen stint.

“Hilda attempted to set a record of 100 hours, however, almost seven hours were deducted from her final total because she mistakenly took extra minutes for one of her rest breaks early on in the attempt.

“As with all ‘longest marathon’ records, the participant is permitted a five-minute rest break for every continuous hour of activity.

“These rest breaks can be accumulated if not taken.

“They were the only times Hilda could use the bathroom or sleep during the attempt,” GWR said.

Hilda Baci, a Nigerian Chef and owner of MyFoodByHilda Restaurant, was determined to break the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking time by an individual.

She finally won the Cook-a-thon competition at a record time of 93 hours 17 minutes against the 100 hours she had set for herself. (GBN)
