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

A cheap bunch of roses from the supermarket can be transformed into a lovely table arrangement for a dinner party in just a few minutes. Place some soaked green oasis into a dish or a terracotta flowerpot and insert a candle into the centre. Cover the oasis with greenery from your garden, ivy and rosemary are ideal. You don't need any wire and can just insert the ends of the stems into the oasis. Cut the rose stems to 2 inches below the flower and insert into the oasis. A perfect center piece for a dinner party, costing only a few pounds!
