Popular Nigerian chef, Hilda Effiong Bassey, better known as Hilda Baci, has lost the Guinness World Record holder position for the longest cooking marathon to Irish chef, Alan Fisher.

TopSociety reports that the Guinness World Records (GWR) confirmed the development in a statement on its official website on Tuesday where it also announced the new holder as Alan Fisher.

The statement reads,

“Alan Fisher (Ireland), an owner and chef of a restaurant in Japan, has broken two cooking-related Guinness World Records titles,

“First up, he’s claimed the longest cooking marathon (individual) after clocking in a time of 119 hours 57 minutes. That is more than 24 hours longer than the previous record held by Nigerian chef Hilda Baci.

“Alan then claimed the longest baking marathon (individual), with a time of 47 hours 21 minutes. The previous record holder was Wendy Sandner (USA) with a time of 31 hours 16 minutes.

“What’s even more impressive is that Alan took on both attempts back to back, meaning he was at work in the kitchen for over 160 hours with just over a day of rest in between!”

Recall, the Akwa-ibom born chef was declared the Guinness World Record holder for the longest cooking marathon after cooking over 100 different dishes for 87 hours 45 minutes.

The Guinness World Record in a statement on its website had declared Hilda as the record holder following a thorough review of all the evidence.

The 26-year-old Nigerian chef began on Thursday, May 11, and continued through Monday, May 15, cooking over 100 pots of food during her four-day kitchen stint.

GWR said that Hilda attempted to set a record of 100 hours, however, almost seven hours were deducted from her final total because she mistakenly took extra minutes for one of her rest breaks early on in the attempt.
