Chef Lata Tondon breaks silence after Hilda Baci displaced her as Guinness World Record holder

Indian chef, Lata Tondon has finally sent the much anticipated congratulatory message to Nigerian chef, Hilda Bassey Essien aka Hilda Baci for becoming the new holder of the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual.

Tondon was the previous recipient of the award after she cooked for 87 hours in 2019.

Guinness World Records (GWR) confirmed Hilda on Tuesday in an announcement made through its official Twitter account after reviewing the evidence on June 13, 2023.

Hilda cooked over 110 meals for 100 hours to beat the existing Guinness World Record of 87 hours, 45 minutes and 00 seconds.

Guinness however, reduced her time by 7 hours for slightly breaking a rule, and officially accorded her the record time of 93 hours 11 minutes.

GWR wrote; “Following a thorough review of all the evidence, Guinness World Records can now confirm that Hilda Effiong Bassey, better known as Hilda Baci, has officially broken the record for the longest cooking marathon (individual), with a time of 93 hours 11 minutes.”

Reacting on Thursday, Tondon in a post on her social media page, said he was happy for the Nigerian chef.

She wrote; “Namastey Nigeria I’m very happy for you all and my best wishes to Hilda.”
