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

Sorry for the lack of posts this week - I am frantically getting ready for the Good Food Show tomorrow and Masterchef Goes Large. I have just used 42 eggs to prepare cakes and meringues for demonstrating recipes from my book. Demonstrating baking receipes without an oven was never going to be an easy task! I have butterflies in my stomach but keep telling myself that this is meant to be fun. Fingers crossed it will all go OK. It will be so nice to see everyone involved in Masterchef again and to see what everyone has been up to. On Friday I received my badge for the show which said "Hannah Miles, Celebrity" - how exciting is that! Not quite sure that I class myself as a celebrity but as the pass gets me into the VIP area (with lots of proper celebrities) I am not complaining!!! If any of you are coming to the show do come and say Hi - I will be in the Rangemaster Theatre at 10.45 and 12.45, book signing at 2 and then in the invention test theater for the rest of Wednesday and all of Thursday. So off now to pack the car and I look forward to reporting back to you on my return!

I'm so sorry that I can't come. Would have loved meeting you. You'll be fantastic, I'm sure.
That so nice of you, being a celebrity, but staying so humble about it. You deserve to be in the spotlight.
They're showing celebrity MC2008 on our tele now. Funny hé,famous people becoming cooks, while you became famous being a good cook.
