Record-smashing Hilda Baci, a Nigerian chef, completed her marathon cooking at 100 hours, setting a new Guinness World Record for the ‘longest cooking period’ by an individual.
Recall Hilda had equaled and surpassed Indian chef Lata Tandon’s record for the longest cooking time on Monday morning.
The Akwa-Ibom-born cook will then surpass her initial 96-hour aim by four hours, setting a new world record of 100 hours.
Hilda began cooking for the cook-a-thon on Thursday at 4 p.m. Nigerian time by turning on her cooker.
President Muhammadu Buhari, Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwoolu, and Senate President contender Godswill Akpabio are among the luminaries who have thrown their weight behind her campaign.
The chef’s exceptional feat will be reviewed by Guinness World Records management before her name is formally put into the famed book, which includes a slew of Nigerians with impressive exploits.
