Following the recent accomplishment by Nigerian chef Hilda Baci, Guinness World Records has issued an official statement.
With a 100-hour record time, Baci, a Nigerian from Akwa Ibom State, broke the previous record for the longest cooking session by an individual. Baci outperformed Indian chef Lata Tondon, who finished the feat in 2019 in 87 hours, 45 minutes, and 0 seconds.
The statement, released on their official website read; “She’s hoping to snap up the record title for the 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.”
According to the British reference body, one of its spokespersons said they “are looking forward to receiving the evidence for its Records Management Team to review before we can confirm the record is official.”
