Hilda Effiong Bassey, popularly known as Hilda Baci, is a Nigerian chef and restaurateur who just finalised her attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking by an individual.

The chef initially set out to cook for 96 hours to significantly break Lata Tandon’s2019 record of 87 hours and 45 minutes. As the 96th hour approached, she was motivated to extend her attempt to 100 hours and 40 minutes, breaking the record by over 13 hours.

While appreciating the love and support, Hilda Baci said, ” I am so amazed at the outpouring of love from Nigerians towards achieving this record. The first six hours were the toughest for me, I had to pray to God for strength.
