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

Happy May Day Weekend to you all. I am up early finishing my cook book and suprise suprise it is raining heavily here! Why does it always rain on a bank holiday??? This is the May Day Dawn (6am!) Celebration at Ampthill Park in Bedfordshire yesterday. Sadly I was in Germany so missed it this year, but my Mum and Mike thought you might like to see their photos of the traditional English Morris Dancing on May morning! The event always ends with cooked breakfast in a nearby pub - a perfect start to the day and a reward for the VERY early start!
