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 weekends cake baking project was a 1st birthday cake for a Tigger fan! As my husband pointed it, it was VERY orange. My response.... "Tiggers like orange...and honey...and haycorns and thistles..."! At University (and I am not quite sure I should be admitting this...), I was president of the Winnie the Pooh society. We held early morning pooh stick competitions, returning to college for breakfast at the same time as the rowers and woozle hunts around the city. We had a lovely red and yellow scalf that had been used by the Uni Winnie the Pooh society for years. Eeyore was always my favourite character as he was such a grump - somewhere in the loft I have an eeyore with a detachable tail and a "Pooh goes home to bed" game - I really should dig them out! If I am out in the garden and noone is watching, I sometimes play pooh sticks from our bridge over the stream in our garden!
