Celebrity chef Hilda Baci has proudly unveiled her official portrait alongside her Guinness World Record (GWR) plaque, recognizing her achievement for the longest cooking time by an individual. Gurustab reported that the GWR announced Hilda as the latest record holder, having cooked continuously for an impressive duration of 93 hours and 11 minutes.
Taking to her Instagram page on Monday, June 19, 2023, Hilda shared a video capturing the moment she received her GWR plaque. Overwhelmed with joy, the 27-year-old chef screamed with excitement but refrained from opening it, teasing an official unboxing event.
In the subsequent photos shared by Hilda on Wednesday, she exuded elegance as she posed with her well-deserved award.
In a separate development, Nigerian chef Damilola Adeparusi, also known as Chef Dammy, has expressed her intention to surpass Hilda Baci and claim the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual. Speaking during an interview with Vanguard in Ado-Ekiti on Friday, Chef Dammy emphasized that her recent 120-hour cook was not officially registered with the Guinness World Records.
Motivated by the support she received from well-wishers and notable figures in Nigerian society during her previous “Cook-A-Thon,” Chef Dammy has made the decision to undertake a cooking marathon of 150 hours and ensure its proper registration with the GWR. The upcoming challenge is scheduled to take place next month, as Chef Dammy remains open to new opportunities and experiences in her life.
