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

Tomorrow we are having supper with Kathy Brown in her beautiful gardens http://www.kathybrownsgarden.homestead.com/
Her husband has described Kathy and I as kindred spirits as we both love cooking with flowers and I am glad that Masterchef has thrown us together. This is Kathy's cake from her book The Edible Flower Garden (definitely worth a read!) which just looks so dreamy and there was a lovely article about her in the Independent on Sunday last weekend.
Next weekend I am doing cookery demonstrations in her gardens when she opens them for the National Garden Scheme. We are creating Rose Petal Cream Teas and Kathy and I are having a lovely time coming up with ideas for what to serve - the more flowery the better! No doubt this will form the main topic of conversation tomorrow evening - I do pity our poor husbands sometimes!!!

Hi Hannah

I'm a producer for a TV production company and am keen to talk to you about a project featuring domestic goddesses!

Do you have any time for a chat?

I checked out your friend, Kathy's website and am very interested in getting her book. Does she send it to the US?
