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

Sometimes I really believe in destiny! There was definitely destiny in play when we were in a large antique/junk shop in Bath last weekend and, up in the attic rooms, came across this tiny miniature dresser. I have no idea why anyone would have had such a small dresser made (apparently it came from Croatia so perhaps kitchens there are small?) but we both looked at it and said in unison "Shepherd's Hut" and bought it there and then - even thought it was a little damp and I am sure had lived outside for a while (this helped greatly with the price negotiations)! So we are now the proud owners of what I am sure must be one of the smallest dressers in the UK which is gently drying out in front of the Aga and patiently awaiting the arrival of our hut. I don't think I have ever purchased a more "me"/"Hannah's Country Kitchen" piece of furniture!

Love the little dresser. How tall is it? And I am so looking forward to seeing your shepherd's hut. Never heard of them before. One would be just right for our garden too. Although, it does depend on the price...

Thanks for all your lovely comments. It is such a dear little cupboard (who would have know that you could get emotionally attached to a piece of furniture)
Christine it is about 1.4m high ish and Celia - I agree vintage tea plates are essential!!!!

Hi Hannah,

Great blog - I've really enjoyed reading it! Could you let me know where in Bath you got this dresser from? I've been looking for something similar for ages!
