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

I had a request for another garden cake last weekend but this time I made it with two tiers and I did like the result - I love the terrace effect and had found some very pretty sugar daisies which set the garden off nicely, together with my new twisted pastel candles that my brother bought over from America. The cake was for Kate who likes Ladybirds so there were lots of sugar ladybirds dotted throughout the garden! With some little gluten free garden cupcakes as well for Lucy, Kate "almost" sister in law and my friend - they looked very pretty together. Happy Birthday Kate xxx
