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 am not quite sure about how I feel about this photo - it was taken on a visit to a bakery in Suffolk earlier this week and takes playing with your food to a completely new level. The baker had constructed a beach hut from tin loaves and baguette for the roof sandwiched together with margarine and complete with miniature bunting. I wonder if it would have appealed more if made from cake rather than bread - a project for another day perhaps!

It doesn't look very appealing to me. I think your idea of a cake one sounds much, much better!!

The sea gulls would love it ;-)

Go on... do a beach hut cake... you know you want to Hannah!

Then you can do a Shepherd's Hut...


Sadie said...

I think it could have been better constructed! :O)
have a lovely weekend

Sally said...

You're right, not that appealing but just think of the chip butty it would make!
Hi Hannah, I am new to your site, have been working with a certain Mr Brown who you know, we got talking about a few things that I do that he said you may be interested in - what's the best way to contact you?

And a cake hut sounds far more easy on the eye and the taste buds!

Mmmm, not the most appetising window display I've ever seen! I think you could do a much better job! Lucy x
