Hilda Baci, a Nigerian cook, revealed that her attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records was a costly endeavor.

One may recall that Hilda spent 100 hours in the kitchen to break Lata Tondon, an Indian chef, who had previously held the world record.

She stated: “It costs a lot of money to put up something of that sort” in an interview with Channels TV.

The record for “longest cooking marathon by an individual” was broken by Hilda Effiong Bassey.

At precisely 4 o’clock in the afternoon on May 11th, she turned on her cooker and officially began the competition.

When asked why she took on the challenge, Baci responded that it was one of her biggest goals and an opportunity to share some uplifting tales from Africa through the food we eat.

“The journey to the cook-a-thon started five years ago. It is one of my biggest aspirations and I am glad that I took the bold step to embark on this adventure. I have taken time to prepare for this psychologically and I am proud to finally take on this challenge.

“The cook-a-thon is also an opportunity to tell some of the positive stories that come from Africa through the meals that we make.

“This attempt is also proof of the strength young people can exhibit with the right platform and support. I look forward to receiving support from people across the world to achieve this feat,” she said.
