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

Are you Hungry Caterpillar?
I have always been a big fan of the Hungry Caterpillar book by Eric Carle - I think it is the thought of the caterpiller munching his way through cake and cookies and lollipops that makes me smile. Today was Rosie's actual 4th birthday and I was so pleased to find these lovely hungry caterpillar polka dot cake cases and decorations - just so cute (available on line and in Waitrose if you want some!) My brother brought the rainbow chocolate drops over from a visit to the Bloomer chocolate factory which were the perfect addition on top of the buttermilk frosting! Happy Birthday Rosie Pea xxx
