BREAKING!! Guinness World Record Finally Awards Hilda The Longest Cooking Karathon Record Breaker


Nigerian chef, Hilda Baci was on Tuesday finally declared as the Guinness World Record holder for the longest cooking marathon.

The Guinness World Record in a statement on its website said Hilda now holds the record following a thorough review of all the evidence.

“Following a thorough review of all the evidence, Guinness World Records can now confirm that Hilda Effiong Bassey, better known as Hilda Baci, has officially broken the record for the longest cooking marathon (individual), with a time of 93 hours 11 minutes,” GWR wrote.

Recall that the 26-year-old Nigerian chef began on Thursday 11 May and continued through to Monday 15 May, cooking over 100 pots of food during her four-day kitchen stint.

GWR said that Hilda attempted to set a record of 100 hours, however, almost seven hours were deducted from her final total because she mistakenly took extra minutes for one of her rest breaks early on in the attempt.

According to the Guinness World Record, as with all ‘longest marathon’ records, the participant is permitted a five-minute rest break for every continuous hour of activity.

These rest breaks can be accumulated if not taken but they were the only times Hilda could use the bathroom or sleep during the attempt.

The previous record of 87 hours 45 minutes was set by Lata Tondon (India) in 2019.
