Nigerian Chef Hilda Baci Sets Guinness World Record for Longest Cooking Marathon, Puts Nigerian Cuisine on the Global Map

…By Alan Peterson for TDPel Media. Nigerian chef Hilda Baci has accomplished an extraordinary culinary feat, earning her a well-deserved spot in the Guinness World Records.


Baci’s remarkable achievement involves completing the longest cooking marathon ever recorded by an individual, a marathon that lasted an impressive 93 hours and 11 minutes.

Her outstanding accomplishment has not only placed her name in the record books but has also garnered global recognition for Nigerian cuisine.

Marathon of Culinary Delights

Baci’s cooking marathon commenced on May 11 and continued relentlessly until May 15, during which she skillfully prepared a diverse array of dishes without a break.

The event garnered such immense popularity that the Guinness World Records’ website experienced a two-day crash due to the overwhelming influx of traffic from Baci’s legion of fans.

Obstacles on the Journey

However, Baci’s journey to this triumphant moment was not without its challenges.

Vibe by Anns, a restaurant based in Abuja, threatened legal action against Baci, citing a breach of a signed agreement for a meet-and-greet session.


The restaurant alleged that Baci had charged attendees N25,000 for personal meetups, live cooking, and food tasting scheduled for June 24, 2023, in Abuja.

Baci firmly denied these allegations and ultimately cancelled the meet-and-greet session, asserting that she never requested anyone to pay such a significant amount.

Admiration and Inspiration Abound

Despite these hurdles, Baci’s accomplishment has been met with widespread celebration.

Fans and fellow chefs alike have expressed their admiration for her unwavering dedication and exceptional culinary skills.

Baci herself referred to the Guinness World Records’ confirmation of her achievement as “the best news ever.”

Igniting a Culinary Renaissance

Baci’s record-breaking achievement has sparked a renewed interest in Nigerian cuisine and has become a source of inspiration for aspiring chefs looking to push the boundaries of their culinary abilities.

As the world joins in celebrating Baci’s accomplishment, her remarkable cooking marathon serves as a testament to the tremendous power of passion, dedication, and the love of food.

Guinness World Records Officially Confirms Baci’s Triumph

At just 26 years old, this Nigerian chef has not only made history but has also successfully brought Nigerian cuisine into the international spotlight.
