Nigerian Chef, Damilola Adeparusi has congratulated Hilda Baci, the Guinness World Record holder for the longest cooking hours by a single individual.
Adeparusi sent her congratulatory message after Guinness confirmed the record.
Recall that Guinness had on Tuesday adjusted the record from 100 hours to 93 hours 11 minutes.
The post reads, “Following a thorough review of all the evidence, Guinness World Records 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.”
Reacting to this, Chef Dammy, in a post via her Twitter page, expressed appreciation to Hilda for being a huge motivation.
She wrote: “Congratulations to the best and biggest chef in Nigeria. This is surely the beginning of greater things to come. More wins are surely coming your way ma’am. Thank you for being a huge motivation.”
