Reacting to Hilda Baci’s feat, the Guinness Book of World Records said, “She’s hoping to snap up the record title for the longest cooking marathon (individual) which currently belongs to Lata Tondon (India) with a time of 87 hr 45 min.

“Hilda began cooking on Thursday and continued through to Monday, reportedly whipping up 55 recipes and more than 100 meals in a whopping 100-hour stint.

“Officials on our records team look forward to reviewing the evidence and hope to be able to verify Hilda’s efforts as a new record very soon.”

A spokesperson for the British reference body said  they “are looking forward to receiving the evidence for its Records Management Team to review before we can confirm the record is official.”

Meanwhile, a real estate firm, In-Motions Business Limited, has donated a plot of land worth N3.5 million to Hilda Baci in her native Akwa Ibom state for the feat.

Managing Director of the Real Estate firm, Mr. Gideon Ekanem made this known in a statement made available to newsmen in Uyo on Monday.
