Guinness World Records has officially verified that Hilda Baci, a renowned Nigerian chef and restaurateur, has achieved a groundbreaking feat by breaking the record for the longest individual cooking marathon. With an astounding time of 93 hours and 11 minutes, Hilda has etched her name in the annals of culinary history.
Beginning her culinary journey on Thursday, May 11, Hilda embarked on a remarkable four-day cooking extravaganza, which concluded on Monday, May 15. Her ambitious goal was to set a record of 100 hours, pushing the boundaries of endurance and skill in the kitchen.
However, due to a minor oversight during one of her rest breaks early in the attempt, Hilda inadvertently included extra minutes in her cooking time. As per the regulations set by Guinness World Records, approximately seven hours were deducted from her final total to ensure accuracy and fairness.
The previous record of 87 hours and 45 minutes was held by the Indian chef Lata Tondon in 2019.
