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 part of my Easter afternoon tea, I served little fruit pots - in an attempt to counter the sugar content of all the cakes and at least give some semblance of heathly eating on the table! Finely chopped strawberries, kiwi and blueberries filled one topped with passion fruit and the second pots contained mango and strawberry, a drizzle of violet syrup and low fat creme fraiche. They went down very well and were so simple and quick to prepare. They would also make a lovely pre dessert as part of a dinner party to cleanse the palete!

Hi Alex
The syrup I use is from http://www.confiserieflorian.com/index.php?cPath=2
It is the best one I have been able to find even at it's 8 euro price tag!

That sounds like a bargain - thanks for letting me know Hannah!

I absolutely love your idea for a balanced and healthy alternative to the normally super-sweet and sugary afternoon tea fare.
