A chef from Ondo State, Adeoye Adeyolu Blessing is aiming to break the world record for the longest individual cooking hours, which is currently held by her Akwa Ibom chef, Hilda Baci.
KanyiDaily recalls that on May 15, 2023, Hilda Baci achieved a remarkable feat by surpassing the previous Guinness World Record for the longest cooking time held by Chef Lata Tondon from Rewa, India in 2019.
The Guinness World Records confirmed Hilda Baci’s remarkable achievement on June 13, after she broke the record for the longest-cooking marathon by a single individual with a time of 93 hours 11 minutes.
On Friday, June 30, Adeoye Adeyolu kicked off her cook-a-thon in the Ile-Oluji/Okeigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State and is expected to continue until July 6, 2023.
Enthusiastic fans have been eagerly watching Adeoye’s 150-hour cook-a-thon through a live video stream, curious to see if she can endure cooking for six days without breaking down.
However, this news has generated mixed reactions, with many internet users criticizing the Ondo chef for attempting to break the record so soon after Hilda was certified earlier this month.
Despite the controversy surrounding her pursuit, Adeoye remains resolute in her goal to surpass the current record. She asserts that she has diligently prepared for the cook-a-thon and is determined to succeed.
