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

This week's culinary project is herb breads for April's Country Kitchen, together with cooking with violets and baking in flower pots. They are such nice topics and I am loving coming up with ideas! These are some fresh violets that lovely Kathy Brown gave me from her garden to use for violet syrup - I need to pick lots more this weekend so will be off hunting them out in the countryside with my basket! My new column in Country House has also started this month - they have changed the column title from "Monthly Morsels" to "Hannah's Kitchen" without telling me and I was so pleased when I saw it yesterday!
