Hilda Effiong Bassey, also known as Hilda Baci, a celebrity chef from Nigeria, has said that she was unaware that she could sit while cooking to break the Guinness World Record.
Hilda revealed this in an interview on Friday after completing a 100-hour cooking marathon on Monday to break the record for the “longest cooking time” by an individual.
The participant who won the challenge didn’t sit while cooking, therefore the Akwa Ibom State native claimed she stood for 100 hours while cooking.
“I didn’t know I could sit while cooking. I only found out after I completed the challenge that I could.
“One of the reasons I was intentional about filming the whole process was because when I decided to attempt the challenge, I went online and could only see three videos.
“One of the reasons why I didn’t know I could sit despite the fact that Guinness didn’t ask me to stand is that when I checked the videos of the previous chef, she was standing.
“Only after the attempt did I find a clip of her sitting. Maybe before now, no one thought was possible to stand for 100 hours cooking but because somebody has done it, it means it’s possible and doable.”
