Hilda Baci, the Nigerian chef, has reacted to her dethronement as the record-holder for the longest cooking marathon.


On Tuesday, the Guinness World Records (GWR) disclosed that Alan Fisher, the Irish chef, cooked for 119 hours and 57 minutes, surpassing Baci’s record of 93 hours and 11 minutes.

“Nigerian cooking queen Hilda Baci has been dethroned 😳,” the statement reads.

“Alan Fisher from Ireland cooked for an incredible 119 hours and 57 minutes at his restaurant in Japan 🥄.”


GWR added that Fisher also broke the record of the longest baking marathon with a time of 47 hours 21 minutes.

Reacting to Fisher’s feat, Baci said she is happy to have held the prestigious record.

She also congratulated Fisher for his “huge achievement” and sent her best wishes to him.


“I am so happy to have held a record so prestigious and profound I will forever be honoured and grateful for all the love and support ❤️❤️❤️❤️,” she wrote.

“Huge congratulations to Alan Fisher! 119 hrs 57 mins is a huge achievement, and I wish him all the best as the new world record holder!  👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾.”


In June, Baci was certified by GWR as the record holder for the longest cooking marathon by an individual.

In an interview with TheCable Lifestyle, Baci announced plans to turn her cook-a-thon into a festival.
