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

Sharing the Love

What an honour - Lovely Julia at A Slice of Cherry Pie has awarded ‘Hannahs Country Kitchen" the Arte Y Pico award. This is so kind as Julia's site is a great source of inspiration for me. In turn, I’d like to award it to:

Operation Night Brace (OK so I know i am biased as it is my brother but Amy and Gareth's blog really makes me realise that I could spend a lot less money than I do and still be happy - their project is truly inspirational) Keep going guys and that loan will be gone before you know it

The Genius Academy - which has some lovely stories about home teaching

A Year at Oak Cottage - Marie - your recipes always inspire me and your blog plays Michael Buble loudly at me which just makes me smile everytime!

I Heart Cupcakes - whose passion for cupcakes is even greater than mine

Jam and Clotted Cream - for stunning cakes and general all round niceness

and finally (OK I know this is 6 and not 5) Rita - whose emails of support during my book writing have been invaluable
