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

Sundae testing is in full flow now and I am having such a nice time! I saw my friend Jess yesterday and we photographed 6 sundaes - with about 15 different icecreams and sorbets, lots of sauces, fruit and sweets. We tested whether peanut brittle worked better with salted, unsalted or honey roasted peanuts (the result is a closely guarded secret!). The only downside is that when we had finished we had 6 ice cream sundaes to eat - it is a hard life!!!!

It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it........

Hannah, do you have a whizz-bang ice cream machine?

Rita said...

Yum!!!! Are you making one with Aero mint too? :)

Not bad for an afternoon's work! If you need an extra tester, I'm only too happy to volunteer!!

Insanely envious here! Hope it is all going well.

Hi Hannah,

Sorry to be off-topic (again) but I've just heard that the World Pooh Sticks Championship is to be held today.

(I'm trying to think of a connection between this and sundaes, but failing miserably. At least it's taking place on a Sunday...[I'm not sure how to do a sheepish smiley either].)
