The lovely people at BBC Countryfile have awarded Hannah's Country Kitchen their first ever "Blog of the month" award - I am honoured! They have summed my blog up rather nicely - "Hannah often shares the experience surrounding her food, the friends that come around to tuck into her food, visits to local restaurants and events in her village. The blog remembers that food isn't just about the dish itself, but the entire experience of preparing and enjoying the food, of sharing and savoring together." Thank you Countryfile! You can nominate your favourite blogs to receive the award next month by following this link.
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
