The Guinness World Records (GWR), says it is collating evidence for the confirmation of Hilda Baci who has set a new record for cooking for a 100-hour non-stop.
A statement on the GWR website titled “Nigerian chef Hilda Baci bids for longest cooking marathon with 100-hour kitchen stint” disclosed the development on Tuesday.
“A Nigerian chef has been cooking up a storm in her kitchen in the hopes of landing a world record”, the statement reads.
“Hilda Bassey, known on social media as Hilda Baci, has been dominating headlines around the world ever since she launched her cooking marathon.
“She’s hoping to snap up the record title for 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.
“A Guinness World Records spokesperson said: “We are aware of the record attempt and are looking forward to receiving the evidence for our Records Management Team to review, before we can confirm the record is official.”
“Hilda explained she was taking on the challenge to highlight Nigerian cuisine.
“She told CNN: “Nigerian cuisine is the best out there. The more recipes are propagated, the more people will be willing to try it. Nigerian food is such comfort food.”
Baci hails from Akwa-Ibom state, south-south region of Nigeria but she is based in Lagos, where her food company is located.
