Days after certifying Hilda Effiong Bassey, better known as Hilda Baci for her feat in the cook-a-thon, the Guinness World Record has sent her a confirmation plaque.
The 26-year-old chef was on Tuesday, June 13, officially declared the Guinness World Record holder for the longest cooking marathon.
Baci disclosed this in an Instagram post on Monday with a video of her receiving the plaque from a dispatch rider.
GWR said in a statement released on Tuesday, one month after Baci’s adventurous cooking, “Following a thorough review of all the evidence, Guinness World Records can now confirm that Hilda Effiong Bassey, better known as Hilda Baci, has officially broken the record for the longest cooking marathon (individual), with a time of 93 hours 11 minutes,”
According to GWR, Baci 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.
“As with all ‘longest marathon’ records, the participant is permitted a five-minute rest break for every continuous hour of activity. These rest breaks can be accumulated if not taken. They were the only times Hilda could use the bathroom or sleep during the attempt,” the statement partly read.
The previous record of 87 hours 45 minutes was set by India-based chef, Lata Tondon in 2019.
