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

Whilst I am busy adding cup measurements to my book so that you lovely peeps in Australia and America might be able to use the book, my mum is busy proof reading for me! These are two little presents I bought her to say thank you - the cakes on the napkins are so pretty - almost too good to use and would be lovely for a Servietten Technik door stop in the kitchen (paint a large flat stone white and allow to dry - remove the very top layer of the printed napkin and smooth over the stone and then varnish in place - the doorstop in our kitchen was made this way as it has lasted for 7 years - people are always asking where it came from and are amazed at how simple it is to do yourself). The bath bags for harrassed cooks made me chuckle - I have turned everyone in my life into harrassed cooks over the last few months will all the testing so these will definitely come in handy!
