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

One of our favourite quick suppers is griddled halloumi served in pitta bread. Simply slice the halloumi into thick chunky wedges, drizzle a griddle pan with a few tablespoons of olive oil, add a sliced fresh red chilli to the pan and grill the halloumi for 2 - 3 minutes on each side. When the cheese is golden and starting to melt squeeze the juice of a lemon over the cheese. Serve immediately in pitta breads filled with salad, fresh herbs and hummos.
