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

For someone who has every kitchen gadget under the sun, it is perhaps surprising that none of them ever get a mention on this blog. Acquiring kitchen gadgets is right up there with my compulsive cook book buying! Recent acquisitions include herb cutting scissors (thank you Owen and Jonathan) and a large olive stoner that I am using to stone Damsons with - clearly essential. However the latest cake tin discovery couldn't go by without a loud shout about it.

I was introduced to the Baker's Edge brownie pan by Jonathan and Sarah of http://www.aroundbritainwithapaunch.blogspot.com/ - fellow foodie fanatics! Jonathan is Kathy Brown's son and we met at our supper there a few weeks ago. Jonathan's girlfriend Sarah made fantastic brownies in the pan (see below picture) which had arrived that day from the States. They were heavenly!

The idea of the pan (and it works perfectly) is that there is a lovely crusty edge on each brownie you make - therefore avoiding the really gooey middle brownie that invariably appears when brownies are made in a rectangular pan. I have to say it is simply genius! It would also make fantastically shaped jellies or mousses or a snake or maze (a la Harry Potter) cake. It set my brain whirring and I can't wait for mine to arrive!

That is clever...
Can I tell you about my favourite recent gadget...poaching pods from America - which are silicon rubber cups that float in the pan poaching your eggs. http://www.amazon.com/Poach-Pods-Set-of-2/dp/B000P6FD3I
They have raised my egg poaching game to a new level...
http://www.prairielandherbs.com/violetjelly.htm - Also saw this violet jelly and thought of you..have you made this?

I don't think I've posted on your blog before (though I'm senile, so may have done) but I enjoyed watching you on MCGL and have very much enjoyed your blog for quite a while now. I also really appreciate reading your posts on the BBC Food Chat board.

So anyway, just wanted to say thanks for bringing this cunning, cunning tin to our attention. Did I mention I think it's very cunning? :D

Hey Hannah,

Great to see the amazing Brownie tin in actions. As promised, check out the Tree House in Sussex:

Looking forward to trying on your brownies with the special tin.

Hi Hannah
I've been trying to find one of these pans in the UK but to no avail ;0( Looks like I'll finally have to give in and order from the US. Could you tell me where you ordered yours from?
Thanks,
India

Hi India
Mine came from the States sadly although I have written to them suggesting that they should sell them here in the UK.

Thanks Charlotte for the violet jelly link - lovely

And sorry Celia if I have offended!!! There is nothing really wrong with gooey brownies!!!

Hi Hannah,

Really enjoy your blog and this cake tin looks great...just wondered whether you'd seen the ice cream cone cake tin that Lakeland do? http://www.lakeland.co.uk/product.aspx/!11488

Hannah, always good to know (that I'm not senile yet). If you hear of this being available in the UK, please do let us know! Thanks again!
