What lovely weather we had at the weekend - a final swing in the hammock (with laptop writing my introduction to the book - perfect) and a picnic supper with Josh and Rosie. I was so pleased to find these lovely rice paper butterflies (www.janeasher.com) - although not cheap, there are hundreds in the pack and they transform a very ordinary cupcake into something quite special. We were paid a visit by Superman, who approved of the cupcakes wholeheartedly and used the cupcakes to improve his flying prowess!
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
