Guinness World Record (GWR) holder and chef, Hilda Baci has announced her plans to turn her cook-a-thon into a festival.
The Akwa Ibom native, who received her plaque from the GWR for the longest cooking marathon by an individual, during a recent interview with ThCable, said she wants the festival to be “something that happens in different countries.”
“So, in terms of now making it into something, I want to make the ‘cook-a-thon’ turn into more like a festival that happens in probably in different countries,” she said.
“That is something I am open to. I am now reaching out to these brands, and saying, ‘Oh, we have worked on this before’. Now, this is something that I am trying to do.”
She further disclosed that she does not have any plans at the moment to attempt another world record.
“To the best of my knowledge right now, I do not intend to attempt another record. At least, it is not something I am thinking about. It took a lot of thought and planning. It was a huge investment,” she said.
The chef also revealed that a documentary is in the works so people can see her “beautiful story.”
“We are working on a documentary as well because I feel like it is important that people see all these,” she said.
“I feel like it is important that people actually see the process because it is honestly a very beautiful story. I think more people deserve to see it holistically, not just little clips on social media.”
