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

This weekend I was asked to make a 70th birthday cake. In my defence it was fairly short notice and I knew nothing about the chap's interests (and as he was a chap, flowers were out!) It was one of those cakes where I started with a white cake, having no idea how it would end up, and dipped into my trusty cake decoration box! This was the result!! Now, had this been a cake for a cheerleader or a pep rally or the fourth of July even it would have been spot on! Nevertheless they seemed pleased with it, despite the mad feathers!
