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

Well today could not go by without a mention of the Masterchef finale yesterday - my heart was pounding all the way through and it was as if I was transported back to all the stress again. The standard of the final this year is amazing and I would happily have eaten any of the dishes served. I particularly loved the lavender and bramble mousse and thought Mat was a worthy winner - although it was such a close run thing. Andy and Mat both have blogs if anyone is interested and I will be following them keenly to see where they go to work - www.thewildgarlicblog.co.uk and www.thecooksbroth.blogspot.com. I am sure over the next few weeks they will be posting interesting behind the scenes info on all their tasks. Well done all three of you!

It was great. I thought Andy would have done it, but I was gunning for Mat.

Thank you for posting their blog addresses, I'm hopeless at finding these things!
