Welcome

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

I went to a great cheese and wine evening last night and discovered a new cheese that I had not tried before - Petit Basque. It is really rather good and bizarrely tastes of caramel - well Caramac chocolate to be precise (haven't seen that in ages and wonder if they still sell it anywhere?) Washed down with a glass of full bodied red wine or port this cheese would make a perfect end to a dinner party! Definitely worth trying....must ask Ben his view on it!

Another cheese that tastes of caramel is reindeer cheese from Norway but a small piece goes a very long way. Worth trying for its novelty value.

You were my favourite on Masterchef, Hannah, and this has become one of my favourite blogs - thank you for all the pleasure you've given me so far, and I look forward to more goodies to come!

yes you can still buy caramac chocolate, i do, every so often, for the memories if nothing else. Look for small, independent shops rather than the big stores :)

My fiance and i were also at the cheese and wine evening you spoke of. Really good evening and we both agree its a gorgeous cheese. Our favourite was the Cantal - a strong, creamy french cheddar.

I bought a Caramac today from some little known outlet called Tesco's
