Hilda Baci Cook-a-thon To Set A New Guinness World Record and we are cheering.
Hilda Baci just clocked day 1 of the Cock-a-thon currently held at Amore Gardens, Lekki. It’s set to run from the 11th -14th of May. The content creator, producer, and chef is on a mission to break a Guinness world record currently held by Lata Tondon for the world’s longest cooking marathon, she spent 87 hours, 45 minutes, and 00 seconds (3 Days 15 hours and 45 minutes) cooking in Rewa, India, in 2019. If Hilda is successful in the next coming days she would be the holder of the record.
The journey to the cook-a-thon started five years ago. It is one of my biggest aspirations and I am glad that I took the bold step to embark on this adventure. I have taken time to prepare for this psychologically and I am proud to finally take on this challenge.
The cook-a-thon is also an opportunity to tell some of the positive stories that come from Africa through the meals that we make.
This attempt is also proof of the strength young people can exhibit with the right platform and support. I look forward to receiving support from people across the world to achieve this feat.
Join in the conversation online and if you’re in Lagos do drop by, give some cheers to the amazing team doing the work to ensure she breaks this record. And eat free food, we know nothing Nigerians love more than free food, free music, free aesthetics, and a place to dress up.
Here are some pictures from Day 1 of the Cook-a-thon
