Nigerian Chef Hilda Baci Goes After World Record for Longest Cooking Marathon

Mrs. Hilda Bassey Effiong, also known as Hilda Baci, is attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon.

Hilda Baci is preparing to embark on a four-day cook-a-thon in an attempt to break the world record for the longest cooking marathon.

The 97-hour cook-a-thon, which will take place from May 11 to 14 at Amore Garden in Lekki Lagos, is accessible to the public.

Hilda Baci stated during a press conference on Wednesday that she had been “infatuated with the world record” since childhood.

The Akwa-Ibom-born chef, who recently attempted a 24-hour cooking marathon, said she took the dry-run test to prepare for the world record title.

“We had a successful dry run. I say we because it was a collective effort of everyone. I may have been the one doing the cooking but there were so many people standing. So many people did not sleep,” she said.

“During the 24-hour dry-run, I did six hours and rested for 30 minutes.

“I also tried not to drink too much water so as not to go to the toilet. We are working with a nutritionist that is adjusting my diet, such that my bio movement is at bay.

“That is more likely what I am going to do.

“Just as the name implies, ‘Longest cooking marathon by an individual’, I will have to be cooking for an extended period. But Guinness has been so magnanimous to give me five minutes of every completed hour. I can choose to accumulate that break or take the break as it comes.

“I am attempting to break the Guinness world record for the longest cooking time by an individual.

“If you ask me five years ago when I had this idea, I would have said it’s because of fame. I was highly infatuated with the Guinness world record.”

Hildabaci said she will work on her body fitness and stamina ahead of the cook-a-thon.

“Me going to the gym has also shown that I really want to do this. I had to lose weight. I kept saying to everyone during the 24-hour dry run that I couldn’t have done this when I was bigger,” she said.

“I lost about 22kg last year.”

The current record for the world’s longest cooking marathon is held by Lata Tondon.

Lata completed the task in 87 hours, and 45 minutes in India in 2019.
