The longest cooking marathon record, which Lata now holds, was previously held by Los Angeles resident Rickey Lumpkin, who cooked continuously for 68 hours, 30 minutes, and one second in 2018.
Lata surpassed his record by over 20 hours and cooked more than 1,600 kilograms of food grains, made 400 vada pavs, 250 sandwiches and a host of other delicacies over four days.
The food was served to over 20,000 visitors, including children from orphanages, blind schools and senior citizens from old age homes. The chef and environmentalist used the platform to encourage people to plant over 17,000 saplings too.
Sending in her support for Hilda who is few hours away from breaking her record, Lata wrote;
“All the best Hilda. Hope to see you on the official site of the Guinness Book Of World Record soon!!!”
