Hilda Bassey Effiong, the Nigerian chef fondly called Hilda Baci, has broken the Guinness World Record (GWR) for the longest cooking marathon by an individual.
Baci achieved the new feat in the early hours of Monday at the Amore Gardens, Lekki in Lagos.
The competition — better known as cook-athon — started on Thursday at exactly 4 pm after the restaurateur turned on her cooker.
