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

I have recently developed a bit of an obsession with old teasets. I now have 5 sets which I am sure is more than I could ever need in one sitting and absolutely no where to store them - they are currently in the dresser in the shepherd's hut in our garden! These are my two latest acquisitions - the pretty white and gold one was sitting in the window of a charity shop when I passed buy - honestly who could ever throw out such a pretty set of cups and plates. Luckily I snapped it up and it has gone to a good home. The forgetmenot tea set was another "absolutely necessary" purchase as it matches my violet tea set - exactly the same shape and colour, just different flowers. Afternoon tea for 30 anyone?

Wonderful props for photoshoots for the next book, perhaps?

The shape of the forgetmenot cup is so pretty.

gosh, previous post is just a touch exciting!

Love your obsession. I have a similar one myself. Well, you can never have too many cups and saucers can you? ;o)

My sister was at a 40th Birthday Afternoon Tea Party recently - how civilised is that?!!

I bought two Royal Albert cups and plates yesterday - almost similar to the first cup. So dainty and pretty.
