    The Guinness World Record said it is reviewing the evidence first before officially confirming the 100 hours record of Nigerian chef, Hilda Effiong Bassey, popularly known as Hilda Baci

    Guinness World Records has released an official statement following the recent feat achieved by Nigerian chef Hilda Baci.

    Baci, a Nigerian and an Akwa Ibom State native, surpassed the record for the longest cooking time by an individual, with a 100-hour record time. Baci beat Indian chef, Lata Tondon, who had completed the task in 87 hours, 45 minutes, and 00 secs in 2019.

    The statement, released on their official website read; “She’s hoping to snap up the record title for the longest cooking marathon (individual) which currently belongs to Lata Tondon (India) with a time of 87 hr 45 min.

    “Hilda began cooking on Thursday and continued through to Monday, reportedly whipping up 55 recipes and more than 100 meals in a whopping 100-hour stint.

    “Officials on our records team look forward to reviewing the evidence and hope to be able to verify Hilda’s efforts as a new record very soon.”

    According to the British reference body, one of its spokespersons said they “are looking forward to receiving the evidence for its Records Management Team to review before we can confirm the record is official.”

    Hilda carried on despite surpassing Tondon’s record time and said at 4:00 pm that she was fully ready to reach 100 hours of marathon cooking.

    The 27-year-old Nigerian did not stop until she reached 100 hours of cooking as at 8:00 pm on Monday.
