The « Cook-a-thon » as she tagged her cooking marathon is took place at Amore Gardens at Lekki. Many people gathered at the Amore Gardens to support and boost Hilda’s morale.
Sponsors of this cook-a-thon provided majority of the food items, ingredients, cooking utensils, etc. Therefore, she is not the sole sponsor of the project.
Each and every dish Hilda prepared was served to guests present at the event. Therefore, she cooked for free for four days straight for Nigerians.
This implies that Hilda literally did not sleep for four days. According to the Guinness rules:
- she is required to stand to cook, she is not permitted to sit while cooking.
- While cooking, she can’t drink coffee, stimulants etc to boost her energy
- She is permitted to consume food, water, or fruit juice, as well as glucose.
- She can only take 5 minutes resting break every hour
