If you enjoy success stories with happy endings, Hilda’s Cook-A-Thon will bring a smile to your face every time you think of the hope and goodwill it has instilled in our society’s young people. As indicated by the number of chefs (and other people) who have also decided to break records of their own, many are already dreaming once more and hoping to accomplish some achievement in their various passions. One example is the Chef Dammy trending on social media.
Recall that over 100 pots of different dishes and food were prepared during the four days that the 26-year-old Nigerian chef Hilda kept busy in the kitchen, starting on Thursday, May 11, and continuing through Monday, May 15. Hilda had tried to break the record by working for 100 hours, but she was shorted by about seven hours because she miscalculated the lengths of some of her rest breaks early on in the endeavor.
And Last Tuesday, the Guinness Book of World Records formally recognized Hilda as the longest-cooking marathon record holder. The Body said that after carefully examining all the available data, Hilda had been awarded the record, according to a statement on the Guinness World Records website. GWR said,
“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.”
The previous benchmark, which Lata Tondon (India) set in 2019, was 87 hours and 45 minutes. A live Instagram stream allowed millions in Nigeria and elsewhere to follow Hilda’s record attempt as it unfolded.
After naming Hilda the current cook-a-thon record holder, Guinness World Records noted that its live stream had experienced its highest level of involvement. Following a quote from an earlier tweet and the caption, GWR also revealed this in a recent tweet.
“Yeah, this is our best-performing tweet of all time, with nearly 25 million news feeds reached.”
When the same tweet was checked on Monday, June 19, it had accrued 30.9 million views. Indeed, a celebrity chef. No doubts netizens were in a frenzy, and social media as agog as Baci trended
Chef Hilda Baci has now received her plaque in honor of the title “Longest Cooking Marathon Record,” days after being recognized as the holder of the Guinness World Record for the longest individual cooking marathon. The expertly packaged surprise was given to the ecstatic and overwhelmed celebrity chef, whose name has gone down in history. The superstar was also seen unwrapping the award in an online video that went viral, and she streamed live on Instagram to share her excitement with her fans as she received her recognition award.
Captioning the video, Hilda Baci wrote, “Unboxing our Plaque @guinnessworldrecords.”
