Welcome

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

It is the time of year for village shows again. A few weekend ago I had the honour of judging the confectionery class at Sharnbrook Show - lovely cakes, jams, quiches, breads - I was much better prepared this year and had no breakfast before judging and didn't leave the chocolate brownies until last (unlike last year when the brownies nearly finished me off!) Lots of fun!

This weekend was my Mum's show at her allotment - best dressed scarecrow competition, lots of wonderful vegetables grown on the allotment, bunting, BBQ food - Mum won 1st prize for her vase of fresh flowers - well done Mum!

Hannah, we had an apple festival here at the Oval yesterday. First time for us, but it was lots of fun. We had about 300 people round in the afternoon. They came to pick their own apples, we pressed apple juice and a friend and I sold jams and chutneys. We were not really prepared well as we didn't know so many would come. The sun was out too - what a fun day.

It looks like you had a wonderful day Hannah! It hardly seems like it's been a year since the last one, but I guess it has!
