Early Life

Hilda Effiong Bassey aka Hilda Baci was (born September 20, 1996), in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria, as Hilda Effiong Bassey. Hilda’s mother is a cook as well. She is the owner of the “Calabar Pot” culinary brand.

Education

She attended primary and secondary school in Nigeria before earning a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Madonna University, Okija.

After finishing her education, Hilda decided to pursue her passion for cooking and began her career as a professional cook.

Career

Nigerian chef Hilda Effiong Bassey began her culinary career in 2020 and has since created a profitable company called My Food by Hilda. She uses the opportunity to display her cooking abilities and engage with her audience.

She has broken the current Guinness World Record

She is on track to beat the Guinness World Record for the “longest cooking marathon by an individual” after clocking in at 87 hours and 50 minutes.

Suppose Guinness World Records confirm her. In that case, she will be displacing the current world record holder, Lata Tondon, an Indian chef who achieved the feat in 2019 with 87 hours and 45 minutes of record-breaking uninterrupted cooking.

Baci is no stranger to the pressures of competitive cooking competitions. She won the first edition of the “Jollof Faceoff” in 2021, defeating other contenders, including a Ghanaian adversary in the final, to gain the most excellent version of West Africa’s highly-fought spicy rice supper title.

She said her mother’s culinary techniques influenced her enthusiasm for cooking, and her dishes were all homemade.

Road To Breaking The Guinness World Record

Hilda Baci cooked for four days non-stop. She stood to cook; she was not permitted to sit while cooking.

She cannot take coffee, stimulants, or any energy drink to boost her energy and bodily strength while cooking artificially.

She can eat food, drink water or fruit juice, & take glucose. The cooking occurred at Amore Gardens, Lekki, Lagos State, Nigeria.

She cooks round the clock, no sleep (Morning, afternoon, evening, and night. So, for four nights, she won’t sleep). She has just 5 minutes rest per hour [meaning for every 1 hour, she is entitled to just 5 minutes rest or break, that’s an hour break every 12 hours].

Other sources claimed that She gets a 30-minute break every 6 hours, and she spends the 30mins in a medical van which is just close by, within which she can nap, use the restroom, and get a medical assessment or checkup by the medical team available on the spot.

Whatever she cooks is shared with the people at the venue for FREE. She is not selling the food.

She cooks different meals simultaneously. She is at liberty to cook any meal she likes. There are no restrictions as to what she can cook or not cook.

The World Record title concerns cooking within a time frame, not about what is cooked. As long as she is cooking, she is on track.

Every meal cooked and every plate served is recorded

She has cooked over 115 meals so far with almost 3,000 portions, if not more, by the time you read this.

She started the cooking on Thursday and is expected to complete the target time frame by Monday, 15th May 2023 evening.

The current holder of the title Hilda seeks to break is an Indian chef Lata Tandon, who set a Guinness World Record for cooking for 87 hours and 45 minutes non-stop in 2019.

To break the record, Hilda Baci is attempting to cook for 96 hours, using extra 9 hours to break the world record as the first human on earth to spend such an amount of time cooking a marathon.

She tagged the cooking project “Cook-a-thon”, a phrase coined from the word “marathon.”

She appears exhausted already, but the people around her cheer her on to boost her morale. And they are available with her as she cooks 247, even at night.

Most of the food items, ingredients, utensils, etc., she used for this project are provided by her sponsors. So, the money expended on this project is not 100% from Hilda or her Food brand.

Uber, one of her partners, even offered a 40% discounted ride to the venue for people who wished to join and cheer her up at the venue.

Guinness World Record reveals reason for not yet endorsing chef Hilda Baci’s cook-a-ton

After being questioned about not showing or discussing chef Hilda Baci’s cook-a-ton, the Guinness World Record explained.

The Guinness Book of World Records, often known as the Guinness Book of Human and Natural World Records, is a reference book that covers human and natural world records.

Hilda Buci, a celebrity Nigerian chef, broke the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking period on Monday morning.

The previous record holder was Indian Chef Lata Tondon, who cooked dishes for 87 hours, 45 minutes, and 00 seconds.

Hilda Baci had been cooking for 91 hours and was still cooking at the time of writing this report.

Baci’s initial goal was to break Lata Tondon’s 87-hour-and-45-minute record, which she accomplished at roughly 7.46 a.m. on Monday.

But she didn’t want to stop there, so she set out to break the Guinness World Record by cooking for more than 96 hours.

Nigerians continue to congregate around the famed cook as she goes about her business.

People screamed in her live broadcast to show how proud they are of her. It should be noted that her cooking hackathon has brought many Nigerians from all walks of life together for the past four days as they converge around her cooking station.

Chef Hilda Baci replies to Guinness as they are taking time before officially confirming the record

Hilda Baci, a famous Nigerian cook, reacted when Guinness stated that they would need to check some details before crowning her the winner of the previous record.

The lady stated that she can’t wait for it to be official in order to demonstrate how determined she is to win the challenge and set a new world record.

Guinness has previously tweeted:

“We’re aware of this amazing attempt, we need to review all the evidence first before officially confirming a record.”

GWR confirms Nigerian Hilda Baci as the holder of the longest Cookathon in the world

Following a thorough review of all the evidence, GWR 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.

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.

Hilda 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 previous record of 87 hours 45 minutes was set by Lata Tondon (India) in 2019.

Hilda attempted this record to “put Nigerian cuisine on the map” and “to inspire young African women to chase their dreams.”

“I also decided to break this record to truly push my limits and test my abilities,” she added.

Hilda prepared for the event by creating a 35-item menu “as a guide” for every meal that she would cook.

Hilda’s record attempt took the world of social media by storm, with millions in Nigeria and beyond following her progress via an Instagram live stream.

Hilda’s cook-a-thon was in fact so popular that our website crashed for two days due to the immense volume of traffic we received from her legion of loyal fans.

Several high-profile Nigerian figures visited Hilda to support her during her record attempt, such as the Vice President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo; the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu; and award-winning singer Tiwa Savage.

Hilda was required to abide by several rules during her record-breaking cook-a-thon:

There must be at least two items being prepared or cooked at any time

A sous-chef is permitted to assist in prep work, washing up, and cleaning the kitchen area, but all the cooking must be done by the individual attempting the record

One of the most important rules of our food-related record attempts is that all items must be consumed after cooking. To this end, Hilda invited any and all members of the Nigerian public to come and eat her freshly made meals. All leftover food was donated to the Festus Fajemilo Foundation.

“My team’s and my goal for this event was to make it free to all and to feed the less privileged,” Hilda said.

According to Hilda, each pot of food she cooked was big enough to serve 30-35 people, and “appropriate stock control was conducted” to avoid any wastage of food.

After graduating from Madonna University, Nigeria, with a degree in sociology, Hilda decided to embark on her culinary career. She was inspired by her mother, Lynda Ndukwe, who is also a chef.

Hilda went from success to success, hosting television show Dine on a Budget in 2020, before winning the Jollof Face-off competition in 2021. Representing her native Nigeria, Hilda beat Ghana’s Leslie Kumordzie to claim the victory.

Personal Life

Hilda is a reserved person who prefers to keep her personal life secret. Hilda is most renowned for her culinary abilities and contributions to Nigeria’s food industry. She has received numerous prizes for her efforts, including the Guinness World Record for the longest individual cooking marathon in 2023.
