Nigerian Chef Hilda Baci broke the Guinness World Record for the longest cook-a-thon. The previous record was set in India in 2019 by Chef Lata Tondo at 87 hours and 45 minutes. Hilda surpassed this record by cooking for 87 hours and 46 minutes, making over 110 meals from Nigerian cuisines.
She started cooking on Thursday, May 11, and finished on Monday at 4 pm. A Twitter user questioned why Guinness World Record had not acknowledged Hilda’s feat. The organization responded, saying they were aware of the attempt and needed to review the evidence before confirming the record.
