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

Well I am pleased to report that 10 minutes ago, I finished testing the final recipe. Can you hear the whoops of joy emanating from the computer! I know when I look back (and am not quite as exhausted as I am now), I will be hugely proud of the amount I have cooked and also very grateful to everyone who has helped - particularly Sacha for all the washing up. I don't think I have ever appreciated quite how much work goes into a cook book! Just amendments and an introduction and then I can submit - what an amazing day that will be!
