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

Hinwick House was a stunning backdrop for Friday evening and really set the mood for the dinner which, I am pleased to say, went really well! No panics, everything on time, empty plates returned to the kitchen! It made me realise that a lot of the pressure on Masterchef was the cameras and not being in control of the situations we were in. Although it was completely exhausting, I really enjoyed the buzz of cooking for lots of people again and am proud that I didn't even panic once! Thank you all for your kind wishes of support - very much appreciated!
