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 was my friend Ros' birthday. Poor Ros is very sick so we wanted this party to be super special for her. This was the cake I made - very English Country Garden with fresh roses and sweet peas on top and matching cupcakes underneath. The rice paper roses are my decoration of choice at the moment - I can't use them often enough (available at http://www.makeawishcakeshop.co.uk/ if you want some - I am not on commission honest!) Ros loved her cake (she had three slices!) and we all enjoyed the party very much. Happy Birthday Ros xxxx

Hi Hanna,
It's amazingly beautiful! I'm sure that your friend recovered as soon as she looked at it:)
I congratulate you on your Big Book of Cakes and Cookies, I received it a couple of days ago from the Amazon, and I love it very much. Thank you for a lot of great recipes!
