There are few things more quintessentially British than a beach hut and I have fond memories of childhood holidays at Wells next the Sea in Norfolk where we would huddle in our little beach hut and have cups of tea and toast marshmallows on a fire after playing on the beach. These colourful beach huts are from Southwold where we went for a holiday last autumn - so bright and colourful against the dark autumn sky.
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
