Spring is definitely here and everything is coming to life in our garden. I really must do some gardening soon although no time this weekend as my lovely brother Gareth is coming to visit from America for his birthday. Busy planning lots of nice things to cook him and I guess I might make him a birthday cake if he is good! He missed the whole of Masterchef so looking forward to watching a few of the programmes with him!
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
