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

As I have mentioned before on this blog, afternoon tea is my favourite of all meals! This weekend my lovely German friend Maren was visiting from Hamburg and yesterday we hosted afternoon tea for the Brown family including my favourite German cake! On the menu...Welsh rarebit crumpets, Chocolate peanut cookies, Plum roulade, Lemon and white chocolate cupcakes, Chocolate and Violet cupcakes and my all time favourite German cake - Mohn Kuchen - a baked poppy seed curd cheese cake (pictured above)! Thanks to Jonathan for the lovely photos!
