Joshua (my MC food taster) enjoying some bubbles in our garden! I wanted to pop some too! His parents and we took him to a Chinese restaurant for Dim Sum lunch this weekend and we were all really impressed by how much he enjoyed it. He didn't quite manage the chopsticks, but liked the smoked shredded chicken with chillies, which for a two and a half year old is pretty impressive! Another 16 years or so and he will be appearing on MC, I'm sure.
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
