Hilda was on a mission which entailed her to cook multiple dishes for an expected period of time in order to get recognition from the Guinness World Records.
The current record for the world’s longest cooking marathon is held by Lata Tondon who completed the task in 87 hours, 45mins, and 00 secs n Rewa, India in 2019.
She is a multi-talented Nigerian TV producer, actress, head cook at Food by Hilda and entrepreneur who started her journey from grass to grace.
Not only have Nigerians continued to trend on social media via the many feats by its citizens, from Fisayo Soyombo’s recent Knight-Wallace Fellowships win to Hilda Baci’s entry into the Guinness World Record book, but it is also safe to say this season in the nation can only be about the wins.
Hilda beat Indian chef, Lata Tondon, who currently holds that title. Tondon, achieved his Guinness World feat in 2019 with 87 hours and 45 minutes of uninterrupted cooking.
