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 just wanted to belatedly mention my lovely Mum and our Mother's Day Celebrations - here she is with her Mother's Day posy! Mum came to lunch on Sunday and for once the Aga didn't break down (as is did on Mother's Day last year and at Christmas!!!) so I managed to make my Mummy a nice lunch of smoked salmon, asparagus and potato cakes with a tarragon sauce, rack of lamb with wild mushrooms and port sauce with leek puree, cumin scented kale, potato and parsnip dauphinoise and for pudding a sultana sticky toffee pudding with clotted cream - very naughty but nice. We then went to see Alice in Wonderland in 3D - we loved it and I definitely recommend it! Happy Mother's Day Mum xxxx

I agree with Lucie, your mum is very lucky. Hmm. perhaps my daugther will grow up to be a really good cook?! Something to hope for, then she can spoil me on Mother's Day too!
