Following a great dinner at college on Friday, I spent Saturday morning at the Fudge Kitchen in Cambridge where Nigel taught me to make fudge. A very useful skill! It was really hard work but the end result very pretty good - that's my fudge in the photo!!! I was also taught how to make a very easy fudge icing but microwaving a slice of their fudge with 2 tablespoons of double cream for a minute to produce an instant fudge topping! I will be trying this very soon and will post the results! All in all a very yummy morning!
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
