I received a perfect gift at the weekend from my dear friend Susan who came to visit. Susan is a fellow avid sewer - she is the most immaculate stitcher I know and you could frame her work back to front and it would look just as stunning. Susan gave me the most wonderful knitted cake tape measure - it is so perfectly me (the pink and blue one in the picture). Together with my knitted cake teacosy, I think this means I have officially started a new collection of knitted cake items!
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
