Guinness World Records: ‘It Costs A Lot Of Money’ – Hilda Baci
Hilda disclosed it took her over five years to conceptualize the event and a year and five months to decide if it would occur
Popular Nigerian Chef, Hilda Baci who achieved the 100-hour Cook-A-Thon Guinness World Records, says she spent over five months on the actual execution of the event and spent a lot of money organizing it.
Hilda disclosed this on Tuesday morning, May 23, 2023, in a Channels Television Interview.
Soireenews had reported that Hilda received ovations from Nigerians and the world at large on her historic 100-hour cook-A-Thon feat in Lagos.
She said it took her over five years to conceptualize the event and a year and five months to decide if it would occur.
She stated: “I have been overwhelmed with love in a very good way, I did not expect it to be this massive, but I am very grateful.
“It took us about six months to plan the actual event up to execution; it took a year and five months from when I decided this would happen, and the idea came to me five years ago."
Reacting to a question on the cost of organizing the event, she said: “Especially at that scale and size, it costs a lot of money; I cannot specifically give the figure”.
Hilda cooked over 100 meals in a 100-hour stint breaking the record of Indian chef Lata Tondon who had cooked for 87 hours, 45 minutes, and 00 secs in 2019.
Earlier, Guinness World Records disclosed that it looks forward to reviewing the evidence for its Records Management team before confirming Hilda’s feat.
