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

As you may have noticed from the contents of this blog, I make a lot of birthday cakes. It has been a while since I have had a birthday cake myself but last week on my birthday my brother (bless his little cotton socks) managed to rustle up a birthday cake for me, on the first day of his honeymoon! It was made from two enormous chocolate marshmallows he had had made (they were seriously heavy) - sandwiched together with my favourite marshmallow fluff! I bet you have never seen a Marshmallow this big in your life - I certainly haven't! The chef in the restaurant struggled to cut it with his knife, we struggled to eat it as it was so sticky it stuck to the spoons and I laughed and laughed until I cried - definitely the best birthday cake I have ever had!

It must seem very very tame to be back home in a little English cottage with your cat!

Hope you're safe and sound and not having to struggle out in the snow. How are your hens - mine are in love...

Happy New Year and a belated Happy Birthday too!
