“I don’t want a man that knows how to cook because I want to cook for my man” — Hilda Baci

Hilda Baci, Nigeria’s culinary superstar, is committed to improving the country’s food environment and providing culinary skills and knowledge to Nigerians, particularly women, with the goal of shaping the country’s culinary scene in the future.

Baci, the founder of My Food By Hilda, stated that her goal is to expand the culinary sector and regularly update chefs’ recipes.

My joy is to see more women become economically stable for the growth of the country as it has been proven that the more women into gainful employment, the better the society is,” she enthused.

She founded the Hilda Baci Academy, which provides prospective chefs and food aficionados with the chance to learn from her experience and knowledge, after realizing the potential for development in Nigeria’s culinary industry.

“During our last class, we empower lucky students with items that they can use to start their business, this year won’t be different as lucky students will win a full scholarship to the prestigious Red Dish culinary institution, a $1,000 Amazon gift card, N1 million for 10 people, N5 million for one person, iPad, iPhones, and a MacBook.

“The academy’s curriculum focuses on equipping students with a comprehensive understanding of Nigerian cuisine. Students delve into a repertoire of over 160 recipes, mastering traditional dishes alongside contemporary culinary techniques. This focus on breadth ensures graduates are well-versed in the rich tapestry of Nigerian flavours.

“The academy aims to cultivate well-rounded chefs who can navigate the complexities of the food industry. Students gain valuable insights into food business management, food safety practices, and presentation skills. This holistic approach equips graduates to not only cook delicious food but also build successful careers in the culinary world,” she said.

Baci rose to fame in 2023 with a record-breaking feat: the longest cooking marathon by an individual as attested to by the Guinness World Record (GWR).
