Chef Hilda Baci, who held the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon, visited the GWR headquarters in London today to celebrate the Guinness World Records Day.
This was revealed through the GWR X handle on Thursday, acknowledging her visit.
Baci met with adjudicator Mark McKinley and the team who witnessed her record-breaking feat in June this year.
GWR wrote, “Former record holder @hildabacicooks stopped by to say hello to the team at our London HQ 🥰
“Will we be seeing Hilda set any new records soon? 👀”
Hilda cooked for an astonishing 87 hours 50 minutes at the Amore Gardens in Lekki, preparing over 100 mostly local dishes.
She broke the previous record of Lata Tondon, an Indian chef who achieved the feat in 2019 with 87 hours 45 minutes record uninterrupted cooking.
The new world record holder of the cookathon is Alan Fisher, an Irish chef who cooked for 119 hours and 57 minutes in November 2023.
Fisher’s cookathon was held at the Dublin Convention Centre and featured dishes from various cuisines, such as Irish stew, sushi, pizza, and curry.
He was supported by his family, friends, and fellow chefs, who cheered him on and helped him with the preparations.
