Cooking is what God wants me to do says Hilda Baci


The talented 27 year old chef, Hilda Baci has said that her culinary abilities were predestined from above.

Last Monday, Hilda Baci received a tonne of support from Nigerians and those living abroad after breaking the previous record of 87 hours and 45 minutes established by Indian chef Lata Tondon by cooking for 100 hours

The culinary guru said that cooking has always been a pleasure she treasures in an interview for Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily.

The young chef said, “So, even when I was a TV presenter — and that’s not to say I’m no longer a [TV] host because I’m still very capable of doing those things, it’s more, I chose to apply myself more here because I needed to focus on this aspect of my life and the business aspect, to basically build a system.

“Even when I was on TV, what I did was host a cooking show and a cooking segment on a breakfast show. So, somehow, even in the other aspects of my career, cooking still pretty much shines out the best, and I would say it’s what God wants me to do.”

She further stressed that the success of her cooking business, MyFood by Hilda, was a sign that she had found her calling.

“The minute I started my business, the response to it was amazing. The response to it has been amazing, and that’s just a testament to show that this is what I’m meant to do and I love doing it. So, for the most part, it doesn’t feel like work,” Baci said.

Baci said in the interview that she would love to receive her Guinness World Record certificate before anyone tries to top her achievement.
