Hilda Effiong Bassey, better known as Hilda Baci, is a prominent Nigerian cook who has broken the previous Guinness World Record. After reaching 87 hours and 50 minutes, she is on track to break the Guinness World Record for the “longest cooking marathon by an individual” with her accomplishment. The restaurant owner switched on her cooker at 4 p.m. on Thursday to start the competition, and on Monday morning, she beat the previous world record holder.
If recognized by the Guinness World Records, she will succeed Indian chef Lata Tondon, who now holds the record with a record-breaking 87 hours and 45 minutes of nonstop cooking. Currently, Baci is engaged in a culinary marathon at Amore Gardens in Lekki, Lagos State. More grease, Chef Baci.
