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

This week I have had a photo shoot for my next article for Country Kitchen magazine - one simple sponge cake decorated 4 "spectacular" ways! Not so sure about the spectacular, but thought that as you were all so lovely I would let you have a sneak preview of one of the cakes. The other cakes are a gingerbread man cake, a blue butterfly cake and a clotted cream and strawberry cake with chocolate dunked strawberries. You heard it here first!!!!

"Not so sure about the spectacular"??
Ahem...this cake looks so gorgeous and beautiful - this would definitely be classed as spectacular!


Thanks by the way for the sneak preview. I wish I could get your magazine here, but I am coming over to the UK for a quick break in July and will defintely be buying the mag then.
