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

Just back from a wonderful holiday in Germany with our lovely friends Maren and Christoph. Hamburg is one of my favourite places in the world and I love going there! My husband ran the Hamburg marathon on Sunday (3.58.22 - which is very good in my opinion!) and we were on the course cheering him on.
On Monday we ate at an amazing restaurant - Lutter and Wegner (of champagne producing fame) - where I had the best starter I have ever eaten - a "seafood plate" which was actually a cake stand which a different fish dish on each layer (tuna tartar with guacamole and wantons, scallops with wasabi and apple sauce and prawns and octopus in a smoked tomato sauce) and served alongside, an espresso cup of prawn consomme - I am getting hungry again just typing this! I definitely recommend a visit if you are ever in Hamburg.

WOW!! Your husband ran a marathon? Do you have any pictures - that would be such fun to see! Just running to the end of my drive has me puffing and panting ;)

Germany is my favourite country to visit. I was lucky enough to have lived down in the Black Forst area as a child, in Baden Baden. Todd and I go to visit as often as we can. I love the people and I adore the food!
