Video: Celebrity Chef, Hilda Baci Recalls When She Use to Be Homeless



Hilda Baci, the Nigerian chef who recently set the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking period by an individual, has discussed her journey to stardom and her future goals.

Baci demonstrated her culinary dexterity and agility for 100 hours in order to break the previous record set by an Indian chef, Lata Tondon, in 2019.

Reacting to her historic accomplishment, Guinness World Records, in a statement shared on its Twitter handle, said: “We’re aware of this amazing record attempt. We must review all the evidence before officially confirming a record.”

Speaking during an interview with TVC, Baci said she has had to surmount many predicaments to become who she is today.

Hilda, who became a media sensation after her cooking feat, disclosed that she used to be homeless before but now hopes to expand her business by tutoring clients worldwide.

She also implored young women to shun societal stereotypes and chase their dreams.

She said: “I need young women to see that there’s more to them than society’s stereotypes. There’s always that narrative that you can’t make it [without having others] create a platform for you.

“I’m saying this from an informed place because I used to be like that. For me, I needed to keep doing things with myself to show people that they can win as well. You can have a business, start cooking from home, and build that business properly to the point where you can open an outlet, expand that outlet, and branch out. But you need to do your due diligence. It’s not easy.

“Many people see this buzz now and think I dropped from the sky. They didn’t know I was homeless at some point. There’s an entire phase that got me here, and I am not even done.

“Away from all the buzz, I had plans to open a bigger space because we were outgrowing our space and we needed much bigger staff strength. I’m working on a cookware line. There are things and designs I don’t find. Some work for food vendors, home use, and content creators. I need to put a collection together. Nigerian food is so good. I have many students from across the world. I look [forward] to hosting masterclasses.”
