Reaching the final of Masterchef 2007 was a rollercoaster of emotion, with huge highs and lows, but I loved every minute and learnt a huge amount. I owe a great deal to John and Gregg who had faith in my ability when I did not believe in myself. Since competing on the programme my life has changed considerably. I now write cookery columns for two magazines, give cookery demonstrations and am just working on my 13th cook book - unlucky number for some but not for me!!! I love all forms of country cooking, using seasonal and locally sourced produce. This blog is to enable me to share with you a few of my recipes and baking ideas. Enjoy Hannah xxxx

Another recipe for the fabulous Freddie (of Great Big Veg Challenge Fame) who has progressed from cabbage to corn in his A - Z. Hope that you like this one as much as the cabbage Freddie!
Corn and corriander fritters
4oz self raising flour
2 tsps caster sugar
2 eggs separated
3/4 cups milks
1 1/2 oz butter melted
1 tin sweetcorn drained and 1 handful fresh corriander, finely chopped
butter for pan frying the fritters

Sift flour into a bowl and add the sugar, egg yolks, milk and melted butter. Whisk until everything is incorporated. In a separate bowl whisk the egg whites to sift peaks and then gentle fold into the batter mixture. Stir in the sweetcorn and corriander. Melt the butter in a large frying pan and place spoonfuls of the batter a small distance apart in the pan. Cook until golden, turning over half way through cooking when the batter is almost cooked on the top side of the fritter. Keep the fritters warm in a low temperature oven until you have cooked the remaining batter mixture. I like to serve these with soup as an alternative to bread.
