(Lagos) A Nigerian chef has won the Guinness World Record for the longest solo cooking session after a 93-hour, 11-minute non-stop marathon of standing and cooking local dishes, the organization confirmed on Tuesday.

Hilda Baci, 26, had trained in the gym to stay on her feet for the four days needed to break that record last month.

She said her feat from May 11-15 aimed to “put Nigerian cuisine on the map”.

“After a thorough review of all evidence, Guinness World Records can now confirm that…Hilda Baci has officially broken the record for longest (individual) cooking marathon,” Guinness World Records said in a statement.

According to Guinness, it broke the previous record of 87 hours and 45 minutes, held by an Indian chief in 2019.

Several high-ranking personalities, including the governor of Lagos State, the country’s then vice-president and Nigerian afrobeats music star Tiwa Savage, visited him during his cooking marathon.

“I want Nigerian recipes to be spread all over the world. I want it to be a normal thing to make Egusi soup in an American household,” she told a news conference following her achievement, referring to one of the iconic dishes of the Nigeria.

“I want you to be able to walk into any random supermarket and find Nigerian ingredients,” she said.
