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

There must be something about our fence this week that is attracting birds - first the woodpecker (who I have sadly not seen since) and now this glorious pheasant. Before we lived in the countryside I had no idea of how beautiful they were - this one has touches of leopard spots and tiger stripes in its feathers. We are lucky enough to have some rare white pheasant in our village although I do not get to see them very often! As it is the shooting season I feed the pheasants in my garden to try and persuade them to stay here where it is safe!
