Hilda Baci Reacts As Irish Chef Breaks Cooking Record



Popular Nigerian chef and the immediate past Guinness World Record holder for the longest cooking marathon, Chef Hilda Baci, congratulated Irish Chef Alan Fisher, who is now the latest Guinness World Record holder for the longest cooking marathon by an individual.

News About Nigeria earlier reported that Guinness World Records disclosed in a post on its official X account that Fisher from Ireland, who cooked for 119 hours and 57 minutes at his restaurant in Japan, has dethroned Hilda Baci.

This achievement surpassed Hilda Baci’s own record by over 24 hours.

The post reads, “Nigerian cooking queen Hilda Baci has been dethroned. Alan Fisher from Ireland cooked for an incredible 119 hours and 57 minutes at his restaurant in Japan.”

Following the news, Hilda Baci took to her official X account to congratulate Fisher.

She wrote, “Huge congratulations to Alan Fisher! 119hrs 57mins is a huge achievement, and I wish him all the best as the new world record holder!”

She further stated that she is forever grateful and happy that she held a record so prestigious and profound as the Guinness World Record, noting that it is a feat she is forever proud of.

Hilda Baci also appreciated Nigerians and all her supporters for their unwavering love and support towards her.

It was also gathered that, aside from becoming the current world record breaker in the cooking category, Alan also claimed the title for the longest baking marathon (individual), clocking in at 47 hours and 21 minutes, surpassing the previous record held by Wendy Sandner from the USA, who had a time of 31 hours and 16 minutes.

The Irish chef took on the two challenges consecutively, spending over 160 hours in the kitchen with just a little over a day of rest in between the two record-breaking attempts.
