Welcome

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 was in Suffolk yesterday for meetings and after we had finished I was lucky enough to be taken to the farm's lambing sheds where 2,400 lambs will be born over the next 6 weeks. The shepherds have beds in the sheds as they are needed 24 hours a day. Lots of lambs had been born already (this little black one was only a few hours old) and they were just adorable - I got to cuddle one and really wanted to bring him home with me. One of the shepherds said that she has a lamb that lives with her chickens....now there's an idea!

They are adorable! I noticed the first lambs near us in Cumbria about a week ago whilst I driving along. I was sorely tempted to stop and take some pictures, I wish I had now! How can anyone resist their sweet faces?

Aww those lambs are adorable! Wow, over 2000 new lambs must mean a LOT of hard work there!
