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

The lovely people at Abel and Cole (website here) have sent me one of their organic fruit and veg boxes to try. It arrived yesterday morning and was perfectly timed as I needed to write an article and hadn't been to the supermarket. The joys of home delivery shopping is definitely something I could get used to this. Gem lettuce, lovely cabbage, apples, fresh broad beans in the pods, a tiny melon, nectarines - so what to cook....I settled on some nectarine and vanilla jam and if I say so myself, it is rather yummy. We had it for supper last night with soda bread. Thank you Abel and Cole for the wonderful treat.
