Hilda turned on her cooker and launched into the feat on Thursday, at precisely 4 o’clock in the afternoon.

On April 2, Hilda revealed in an Instagram post that she was going to achieve her five-year-old goal.

She disclosed that she would cook meals for four days and four nights to beat Tandon’s record, which was established in India in 2019.

The Guinness Book of World Records will officially acknowledge Hilda’s achievement once it analyses the supporting documentation.


She is not allowed to sit down while cooking; she must stand.

Additionally, Hilda is forbidden from using stimulants like coffee or any other energy drinks to increase her physical stamina and vitality while cooking.

She worked nonstop, sleeping none of the morning, afternoon, evening, or night.

What’s more, she is only permitted to take five minutes of relaxation for each hour worked, which equates to one hour of break per twelve hours.

Every meal she prepares is given away to guests at no charge. 

The Guinness Book of World Records was established to compile outstanding accomplishments made by people around the globe.
