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

Yesterday, Mum, I and 4 girlfriends had a lovely girlie day out at the Country Living Spring Fair in London. By the end of the day we were all laden down with bags of shopping full of things that we didn't really need but just had to buy any way (we forgot about the credit crunch for the day). My favourite purchase was this cake stand (well that's what I am planning to use it for - it is actually designed as a winter scene decoration but I bought it without the houses and trees) I am already busy designing an Alice in Wonderland tea party to use it at and can see it filled with delicate meringues, cupcakes and fancies. At thirty pounds, it wasn't cheap but I am sure that by the end of the year it will have delighted enough people to make it a worthwhile purchase! I hope you all had a lovely weekend
