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 thought I would share with you a few photos from our village sewing circle meeting earlier this week. It is such a nice group, with people of all ages and with different craft interests. Kathy was teacher this week and was showing Susan and Lucy how to knit neck seams on sweaters - so far beyond the realms of my knitting skills but it was lovely to see the garments come together (Susan had had a bit of an incident and lost the shoulder on her jumper - I think you had to be there but it made us all laugh a lot when she told the tale). It is always good to have a natter and catch up on village gossip over a glass of wine and Lucy had made some delicious homemade guacamole for us all to try! Everyone looks deep in concentration in the photos - as if we are all very industrious with our sewing but I promise you we are not!
