Nigerian chef, Hilda Baci, has ended her marathon cooking at 100 hours, setting a new Guinness World Record for ‘longest cooking time’ by an individual.
Hilda has been cooking nonstop since 4 pm on Thursday, May 11, and has kept cooking till 4 pm on Monday to reach her record goal of 96 hours.
Recall Hilda had, on Monday morning, equalled and surpassed the record held by Indian chef Lata Tandon for the longest cooking duration.
The Akwa-Ibom-born chef will then go on to hit her initial 96-hour target only for her to go extra four hours, peaking at a new world record of 100 hours.
Hilda started cooking on Thursday at 4 pm Nigerian time when she turned on her cooker for the cook-a-thon.
Over the last four days, the 27-year-old has made delicacies from Nigerian cuisines with over 110 meals.
The Guinness World Records management will review the chef’s unprecedented feat before her name is officially inducted into the famous book that comprises a host of Nigerians with achievements in other categories.
Guinness World Record’s website said: “The second stage of the application process happens after your attempt has taken place and requires you to submit your evidence to us for review.
“Once you have submitted your evidence for a record attempt, there will be an evidence review period. The timeframe for this stage will also depend on the type of application you have opt for.
“It can take up to 12 weeks for us to review your documentation and let you know if your record attempt has been accepted as the new record holder or rejected.”
