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!!!!
