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

I wanted to introduce you to the newest member of our family - a kitten we adopted from the RSPCA yesterday. She is a dear little thing - although very timid having been abandoned when she was just a few weeks old. It amazes me that people can be so cruel as she is so pretty and has such a sweet nature. She is a complete ragbag of colours - tabby, tortie, ginger cross with white front paws and grey back paws and a stripy tail! We are working on a name - Jemima, Lyra, Matila, Ginger Maisy (this is Josh and Rosie's choice), Pixie, Petal are all in the running. Any suggestions gratefully received! She looks contented already, doesn't she!
