A Nigerian chef, Hilda Effiong Bassey, popularly known as Hilda Baci has set a new record by surpassing the 96-hour target and has now achieved a 100-hour record time.
Supporters at the cook-a-thon competition, taking place at the Amore Gardens, Lekki, were sharing videos of themselves cheering the young chef as well as celebrating her for achieving the milestone.
Hilda was initially scheduled to stop at 4 pm today culminating in her former 96-hour target surpassing the current Guinness World Record holder for the “longest cooking marathon by an individual”.
The Lagos-based chef began the competition on Thursday after she turned on her cooker at 4 pm and surpassed the current world record holder on Monday morning.
The 100th hour when rectified, will be displacing the previous world record holder, Lata Tondon, an Indian chef who achieved the feat in 2019 with 87 hours 45 minutes record uninterrupted cooking.
