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

My fab brother Gareth with his cake! He was a contestant on Masterchef two years ago (after intensive training from me!!!) and got through to the second round of the heats (making chickpea fritters)! He then sadly got eliminated by someone whole boiled an aubergine!!!!
This weekend, I made him my blueberry duck (with some saffron roasted new potatoes - much better than the mash!) and the chocolate and plum cake so he finally got to experience a bit of this years Masterchef, having missed the whole series by being in America!
He's single girls so let me know if you're interested!!!

He looks adorable (I love making men blush) but sadly I'm already taken.

Hannah, that's ok. I apologize for my harsh words. It's ok if you want to use the photo as long as you credit my name as the author and/or link back to the original photo. Please, forgive me too.
Thank you and have a nice day :)

Hannah, you were so fantastic on Masterchef, really you were. You have truly inspired me to work hard and aim for the best. I am interested in cooking now and wondered if you could recommend any good desserts involving pears?

Best wishes,

Your brother is a cutie to be sure Hannah! And it sure looks like he is enjoying his cake!
