Guinness World Records finally reacts to Hilda Baci’s attempt

Guinness World Records have finally reacted to young Nigerian Hilda Baci’s attempt to break the long cooking session record.

According to them, a Nigerian chef has been cooking up a storm in her kitchen in the hopes of landing a world record.

Hilda Bassey, known on social media as Hilda Baci, has been dominating headlines around the world ever since she launched her cooking marathon.

She’s hoping to snap up the record title for longest cooking marathon (individual) which currently belongs to Lata Tondon (India) with a time of 87 hr 45 min.

Hilda began cooking on Thursday and continued through to Monday, reportedly whipping up 55 recipes and more than 100 meals in a whopping 100-hour stint.

They indicated that officials on their records team look forward to reviewing the evidence and hope to be able to verify Hilda’s efforts as a new record very soon.

A Guinness World Records spokesperson said: “We are aware of the record attempt and are looking forward to receiving the evidence for our Records Management Team to review before we can confirm the record is official.”

Hilda explained she was taking on the challenge to highlight Nigerian cuisine.

She told CNN: “Nigerian cuisine is the best out there. The more recipes are propagated, the more people will be willing to try it. Nigerian food is such comfort food.”

Hilda Baci is yet to be declared a World Record holder for longest cooking session after she finished with her Cook-a-Thon yesterday.
