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

With all this rain, hot chocolate is called for! For extra luxurious hot chocolate simmer enough milk to fill two mugs with a cinnamon stick and 75g of grated milk or plain chocolate over a gentle heat until the chocolate has melted and the cinnamon has infused. Bring to the boil, remove the cinnamon and pour into your mugs. Top with whipped cream, marshmallows and a generous grating of chocolate. See, the rain isn't so bad afterall!!!
