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 the day has finally arrived when our new hen pen is finished and fox proofed. My red and white coup (painted by yours truly) is ready and I am going to collect our new hens after work! It is not an ideal time of year for getting new hens but having used 49 eggs last weekend I really need them. I have managed to find some that are hopefully laying so in a day or two, I should have fresh eggs again! All very exciting and I really hope that these new hens will be as friendly as our last ones.
