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

On arriving at my desk this morning, I had a larger than usual visitor at my window - the peahen had come to pay a visit! The peacocks and pheasants are regular visitors to our garden, even more so now that we have the hens. They are always pecking alongside the run - I think they know that the hens are being fed porridge and lots of tasty morsels inside and want some too!
The hens are doing really well - we have had 8 eggs so far (although I think only three hens are laying...its funny that you can tell just by the shape of the egg which hen has laid it!) Still waiting for my first elusive blue egg but I am sure it won't be long now!

Lovely Hannah. Great that it stood long enough for you to take the photo! Will the blue egg be the same size as a regular egg. Not very familiar with blue eggs.

Lovely! We had peahens on the roof up at the kitchen at the big house one day last summer. I am not sure where they came from. They just arrived and then just as mysteriously dissappeared. They do make a lot of moise though. I hope you take a picture when you get your blue egg!
