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

Is this not the coolest popcorn you have ever seen? I found it in a deli in Leamington Spa at the weekend. You put the whole cob in the microwave in the special bag provided and 2 minutes later the cob is almost empty and you are left with lots and lots of popcorn. It was delicious! I served mine with maple syrup butter (just melt butter with maple syrup and a pinch of salt) - naughty but definitely nice!

just came back to see if you answered RE edible glitter. I see you did - thank you so much! I shall order some from Fairy Goodies. Can't remember the name of the place I bought it online from last year, but it was so disappointing. I mean, if you buy cake glitter, you really want it to sparkle, don't you?! ;o)

Here in Sweden we've now been able to see Masterchef '07. I rooted for you in the finals, but wasn't surprised Steven won it, though it must have been close. Glad to see you've been able to pursue your passion. Will probably try some of your recipes.
Friendly greetings.

Wow, making popcorn from the actual cob looks so artisanal!
