Nigerian Chef Hilda Baci Sets Guinness World Record for Longest Cooking Marathon
Renowned Nigerian chef Hilda Effiong Bassey, popularly known as Hilda Baci, has officially been awarded the prestigious Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon. Hilda Baci embarked on this historic culinary feat from Thursday, May 11, until Monday, May 15, 2023. Over the course of four days, she skillfully prepared over 100 pots of delectable food.
Following a meticulous assessment of the evidence, Guinness World Records confirmed that Hilda Baci has broken the record for the longest cooking marathon, clocking an impressive time of 93 hours and 11 minutes. Although her original goal was to cook for 100 hours, a minor deduction was made due to a mistaken allocation of extra minutes during one of her early rest breaks.
Prior to Hilda Baci’s remarkable achievement, the previous record for the longest cooking marathon was held by Lata Tondon of India, who cooked for 87 hours and 45 minutes in 2019.
Hilda Baci embarked on this extraordinary culinary endeavor with the aim of showcasing Nigerian cuisine to the world and inspiring young African women to pursue their dreams. Her passion for promoting Nigerian gastronomy has left an indelible mark on the culinary landscape.
