Nigerian chef Hilda Bassey Effiong, known as Hilda Baci, has extended her cooking to 100 hours to extend the Guinness World Record for longest cooking hours.
Hilda made a historic feat on Monday, 15 May 2023, after she broke the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking time by an individual.
Announcing her marathon cooking challenge extension from 96 to 100 hrs in an Instagram post on Monday afternoon, Baci’s best friend @ama_reginald wrote: “Let’s go. I asked my baby to make it a round figure, so we are doing 100hrs.”
Early Monday morning, Hilda Baci broke the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual cook.
She achieved the feat after cooking for more than 87 hours and 45 minutes, breaking a record which was previously set by Indian chef Lata Tondon back in the year 2019.
Baci launched into the competition on Thursday, 12 May 2023, at exactly 4 pm when she put on her cooker.
Hilda carried on despite having broken the record as she stated that she planned to cook for 96 hours, setting a new world record as the first human on earth to spend such an amount of time cooking.
Baci started her cooking marathon challenge four days ago at Amore Gardens.
She will keep cooking to extend the record until the 100th hour, in the latest development.
