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

It is not often that I see our green woodpecker, rarer still that my camera is anywhere nearby - by pure coincidence I was just taking a photo of a new recipe when I spied him out of the window sitting on our fence and managed to take a picture before he flew away! It must be my lucky day!

You were lucky to snap the Yaffle!
They look so exotic - it's a surprise to see a bird so big and bright in the garden. I love how they bounce across the grass looking for ants nests.

all the best
