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

The presents are all wrapped and last minute Christmas cards posted and finally it is the eve before Christmas. My advent candle is down to its final day and we have ceremoniously light our new wood burning stove (installed earlier this week with a cloud of dust as the fireplace was cut away - not ideal a few days before Christmas!!!!) I know that for many of you, like me, Christmas eve will be full of last minute preparations and rushing about, but I hope that you will find time to sit and have a cup of tea (or a tipple of sherry) and spend a few minutes looking at your tree and breathing in the Christmas spirit before it is all gone by too quickly.

Merry Christmas to you and yours Hannah! I will definitely take a few moments between preparations to slow down and enjoy the joy and wonder of the season (I like the sherry suggestion!) :)
