Hurrah for a fantastic party on Friday! It was so nice to see the Masterchef crew again, John and Gregg, my wonderful Italian chef Giancarlo Caldesi and Steven's chef Brendan from Bentleys. It bought back so many happy memories of our time filming and it was fantastic to all watch the final programme together for one last time and yes....I cried yet again, but very happy tears!
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
