Following confirmation of her record as the longest cooking marathon by an individual, Nigerian chef, Hilda Baci has described the news as ‘the best ever’.
The announcement was made on the Guinness world records’ website, throwing Nigerians into wild jubilation.
As opposed to the 100 hours she cooked for, Hilda’s record time is now 93 hours and 11 minutes because of discrepancies with her resting hours.
“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 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.”
Taking to Twitter to react to her confirmed record, the chef was full of thanks while gushing over the official confirmation.
She wrote, “This is the best news ever omg omg omg thank you so much 🥺”
