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

Sometimes it is the little gifts you are given that are the most perfect for you. As someone who adores stitching and cooking, you will imagine my delight when I was recently given these vintage chocolate buttons. 18 different antique buttons, made from dark chocolate! They are all different and so beautiful that I now understand the expression "too good to eat!"

Hello Hannah,

I've just watched the repeats of the finals of Masterchef Goes Live 2007, and (sadly) lost my bet that you would win.

Have you been snapped-up by any restaurant since then, or are you still doing your own thing?
