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

On Friday I was invited to the studio where they are taking the pictures for the book. As you can imagine I was sooo excited! Suzanne the designer, Bridget the home economist and her son who was sous cheffing, William the photographer and his assistant - I would never have imagined that so many people would be there and how long it would take to do each shot. I really will never look at cook books in the same way again. My favourite part was the long tables of crockery and cloths of all different colours - lots of floral fabrics and dainty tea cups that I wanted to bring home (sadly they are all rented!). Bridget has such a dream job - cooking recipes for photos all day long.
