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 had no idea I could sit down and cook. I didn’t realize I could till after I finished the task.
“One of the reasons I purposely recorded the entire procedure was that there were only three videos available online when I decided to take on the task.
“When I looked at the recordings of the previous chef, she was standing, so that’s one of the reasons I didn’t realize I could sit even though Guinness didn’t ask me to stand.
“I didn’t discover a video of her sitting until after the effort. Perhaps no one had ever considered it possible to stand for 100 hours while cooking, but now that it has been done, it is clear that it is feasible.
