“I didn’t labour in vain” – Hilda Baci excited as Guinness World Records announces her as new record holder (Video)

Its no longer news that the current world record holder for the longest cooking marathon by one individual is Nigerian Chef Hilda Effiong Bassey, nicknamed Hilda Baci, according to Guinness World Records.

On Tuesday, June 13, 2023, this confirmation was provided via the Guinness World Records website and social media outlets.

According to the official statement, Hilda attempted to break the 100-hour mark, but nearly seven hours were deducted from her total because she took extra minutes for one of her rest breaks early in the endeavor.

The official statement is as follows.

“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.

“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.

“The previous record of 87 hours 45 minutes was set by Lata Tondon (India) in 2019.

“Hilda prepared for the event by creating a 35-item menu “as a guide” for every meal that she would cook.

“She ensured that she had the necessary ingredients to make each recipe, with her team procuring further food items while the cook-a-thon was underway “based on what was needed to be topped up.”

“Hilda’s record attempt took the world of social media by storm, with millions in Nigeria and beyond following her progress via an Instagram live stream”.
