Chef Hilda Baci, who surpassed the Guinness World Record holder for longest cooking by an individual, has revealed that she was once homeless.

She made this known in an interview on Monday.

Speaking about the fame she had gotten from her feat, the Akwa Ibom-born chef stated, “A lot of people see this buzz now, and most of them think I dropped from the sky. They don’t know I was homeless at some point. There’s an entire phase and journey that got me here, and I’m not even done.

“This is still part of a journey. I’m still on a path, and I’m still going. It’s not always going to be rosy. It’s not always going to be easy. But we need more examples like this so people can say, ‘Hilda did it, so I can do it as well.’”

The chef, who showcased her culinary skills in front of a live audience during the cook-a-thon, accomplished a 100-hour record time after cooking for four days.
