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

New violet alert! This is the most delicious violet chocolate we have ever tasted. It was given to my Grandma and she kindly shared it with me. The crystalised violets give the chocolate a really crunchie texture. It was given a 10/10 by us all! Far too nice for cooking so we are saving the rest for a rainy day when we need a treat!

Hi Hannah, the chocolate looks fantastic, is it French? Vida

Where can you buy it? My husband loves violet choc, so it sounds like a good present for him

Violet chocolate - sounds delicious. I remember a selection box of chocs which used to have a dark chocolate with a white creamy centre and a crystalised violet on the top - I'd hope it was still there when the box came round to me!

Looks and sounds utterly addictive! I must try to seek some out!

Joanna - I'm so very sorry it has taken me so long to reply but I am still trying to find where to get the chocolate. My aunt's sister, who lives in France, sent it over and we are trying to find out from her how to get more.

I can assure you it's well worth waiting for !!!

Sorry Vida - I meant to include you in the previous comment.

Yes - it is French and it certainly is fantastic!!
