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

This weekend I was asked to make a sweet covered cake for Rosie and Jo's joint 4th birthday (hence the two four candles - they were turned round in the end so it didn't look quite so like a 44th birthday cake!) I don't think I could have fitted any more sweets on if I tried. I just love the large chocolate buttons with hundreds and thousands and Rosie and Jo and their friends managed to eat all the sweets at their party! The cake itself was white chocolate chip with vanilla buttercream and peach jam. I really love peach and white chocolate together for a change from regular victoria sandwich cakes.
