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

Last night I made a smoked salmon and avocado pizza for supper (quite tasty albeit a little rustic looking!)
For the topping, mixed 200ml creme fraiche, 1 large egg, 1 heaped teaspoon of whole grain mustard, zest and juice of half a lemon, 1 tbsp of chopped chives in a bowl. Sprinkle some smoked salmon and avocado on top of your proved pizza dough and pour over the creamy topping. Bake in a moderate oven until golden brown (approximately 20 minutes in my aga).

I'm not a lover of smoked salmon. (I know sacreligious!) but this does look very appealing. I love the colours and I can see where a lover of smoked salmon would really think this was wonderful! I loved the idea of using the avocado and the creamy topping....almost like a quacamole...now there's an idea...hmm...my brain's thinking on this one now!

I didnt know you could cook avocado. Does it not discolour?
