Sunday was my Grandma's birthday - her birthday treat was to come and see my cookery demonstration (probably not the most exciting of birthday treats but everyone at the demo sang happy birthday to her!) We then came back to our cottage and had a birthday tea including her birthday cake which she is seen enjoying here with my brother who was visiting from New York. Cake fireworks are great no matter how young or old you are!
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
