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

Well today couldn't go by without a mention of Harry Potter (apologies to anyone who isn't a fan) - I am seriously excited and will be going to get my copy at midnight. Last year, we queued for an hour and a half at midnight to get our copies! Rather gallingly a friend phoned whilst we were queuing to say that she had already got her copy from a supermarket and there was no queue so we will be trying that route tonight and hopefully get to bed at a more reasonable time! All weekend plans have been cancelled, food is ready in the freezer and we will both be reading all weekend! Don't worry I won't be posting any spoilers on Monday! If you are a fan, have a great weekend reading the book - I know I will!

It's a pleasure to read your blog Hannah :) Good luck with all that you're doing and enjoy HP (I can't wait myself)!

Can you believe that while I have seen each of the movies I have never read even one Harry Potter book??? I know, odd duck am I! I am ever so tempted to start though!

I spent much of the weekend reading 'Deathly Hallows' but can't discuss it, even with my daughter as she is only a quarter of the way through.The book is wonderful and I rate it the best read ever with 'Gone With The Wind'
