Guinness World Record has finally certified Nigerian chef, Hilda Effiong Bassey, aka Hilda Baci, who broke the record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual.
Hilda Baci had last month, cooked for 100 hours non-stop, breaking India’s Lata Tondon’s 87 hours 45 minutes record of uninterrupted cooking in the process.
On Tuesday, the record body finally certified her as the new record holder for the longest cooking marathon (individual).
Guinness World Record tweeted, “After reviewing all the footage, we’re delighted to announce that Hilda Baci is the new record holder for the longest cooking marathon (individual)
The organization, however, recorded 93 hours 11 minutes for the Akwa Ibom State chef.
The 27-year-old had last month cooked for 100 hours non-stop, breaking India’s Lata Tondon’s 87 hours 45 minutes record of uninterrupted cooking in the process.
But, Guinness World Record on Tuesday announced that it deducted from Hilda’s final total because she mistakenly took extra minutes for one of her rest breaks early on in the attempt.
It said,” However anyone attempting a marathon record receives a five minutes break for every hour that they complete. This is to allow suitable rest breaks for the participants due to the prolonged nature of these records.
”I can now announce with a time of 93 hours and 11 minutes, Hilda Baci is the new holder of the Guinness World records title for the longest cooking marathon. Congratulations, you are officially amazing,” a Guinness representative said in a video.
