The Guinness World Records has announced that Nigerian, Hilda Baci now officially holds the record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual.

In a statement on its official Twitter page, it said, "After reviewing all the footage, we're delighted to announce that Hilda Baci is the new record holder for the longest cooking marathon (individual)."

Hilda, 26, officially broke the record for the longest cooking marathon (individual), with a time of 93 hours 11 minutes. 

The previous record of 87 hours 45 minutes was set by Lata Tondon (India) in 2019.

Recall that the Nigerian Chef began on Thursday 11 May and continued through to Monday 15 May, making over 100 pots of food.

She attempted to set a record of 100 hours, however, almost seven hours were deducted from her final total because she mistakenly took extra minutes for one of her rest breaks early on in the attempt.

“I also decided to break this record to truly push my limits and test my abilities,” she had said after achieving the feat.
