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

This is the cake I have made this evening - a buttermilk sponge with wild strawberry jam, all sugar pink with tiny birds and trailing ribbons. It is for a special 60th Birthday celebration for my friend Lucy's Mum. Somehow she is going to transport it all the way on the train tomorrow from Bedfordshire to Carlisle! I think that will be the furthest one of my cakes has ever travelled! Happy Birthday Lucy's Mum xxx I do hope she likes it! Off to London tomorrow for the photoshoot for the Sundae book. I can't believe that this book is almost finished now and am really looking forward to meeting Steve and Sunil who are transforming my recipes into pictures! Will post a few sneak preview pics on my return if I am allowed!!!
