Hilda Baci was named the new record holder for the longest individual cooking on Tuesday by Guinness World Records.
The GWR in a statement on its website, said, “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.”
The 26-year-old Nigerian chef worked in the kitchen for four days, starting on Thursday, May 11, and finishing on Monday, May 15, producing almost 100 pots of food.
Hilda made an effort to set a record of 100 hours, but her final total was reduced by about seven hours as a result of an early miscalculation in which she overestimated the length of one of her rest intervals.
After reviewing all the footage, we're delighted to announce that Hilda Baci is the new record holder for the longest cooking marathon (individual) 💫
