ONIFTV reported on Tuesday that the famous chef had lost her Guinness World Record for the longest time spent cooking while standing.
The announcement was made by the Guinness Book of Records on their social media accounts. The new record holder, Alan Fisher from Ireland, completed an astonishing cooking marathon of 119 hours and 57 minutes at his restaurant in Japan.
Following the news, the famous chef had updated her social media accounts bio.
Taking to her Twitter page to explain, Hilda stated that she remains a record holder in spirit and history. However, she has chosen to celebrate her predecessor for his achievement and spirit of competition.
She noted how the first record holder, Chef Lata respectfully acknowledged her as the winner and made some adjustments in her bio, hence, why she is following suit.
Hilda further noted how achieving such a record is no small feat and she knows firsthand what it feels like, the more reason why she admires Chef Alan.
Recall that in June, Hilda achieved a 100-hour record time of marathon cooking.
The 26-year-old Nigerian chef began on Thursday 11 May and continued through to Monday 15 May, cooking over 100 pots of food during her four-day kitchen stint, at the Amore Gardens, Lekki.
Following this certification, after the 100th hour, Hilda displaced Lata Tondon, an Indian chef who achieved the feat in 2019 with 87 hours 45 minutes record uninterrupted cooking.
Guinness World Records later confirmed Hilda Baci as the record holder after being mercilessly dragged by Nigerians.
However, because of problems with her resting hours, Hilda’s record time was reduced. Her record time was 93 hours and 11 minutes, as opposed to the 100 hours she cooked for.
