Guinness World Records has officially confirmed that Nigerian chef and restaurateur Hilda Baci has broken the record for the longest cooking marathon (individual) with a time of 93 hours and 11 minutes.
Hilda made an effort to set a record of 100 hours, but her final total was reduced by about seven hours as a result of an early miscalculation in which she overestimated the length of one of her rest intervals.
As with all ‘longest marathon’ records, the participant is permitted a five-minute rest break for every continuous hour of activity. These rest breaks can accumulate if not taken. They were the only times Hilda could use the bathroom or sleep during the attempt.”
The previous record of 87 hours and 45 minutes was held by the Indian chef Lata Tondon in 2019.
