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

Well the cookie pan worked - although I am not sure this is the most exciting looking cake in the world, it was certainly a large cookie, don't you think? I resisted putting any decorations on (as it would have lost its cookie look) much to the disappointment of our nephews and nieces who are very fond of the odd sweet or two on a cake! The recipe on the box was in French and I just about managed to translate it. It seemed to have a HUGE amount of melted chocolate in (perhaps my translation was a bit wrong) and the result was rather similar in taste to a chocolate fondant pudding (yum yum)

I intended to compose you the bit of remark to thank you so much once again just for the pleasing views you have documented here. It is so pretty generous of people like you to give unreservedly all a few individuals would've sold for an e book in order to make some bucks for their own end, especially considering the fact that you might have done it in case you decided. The ideas in addition acted to become great way to recognize that the rest have the same keenness much like my own to find out a whole lot more in regard to this condition. Certainly there are thousands of more pleasurable instances up front for individuals that read your site.

Hi Hannah

Did you know that Fitzbillies in Cambridge has closed down! http://tinyurl.com/4nkmaj6
When they were teaching you the art of fondant fancies, did you discover the secret recipe for the world famous Chelsea Buns? This could be you big chance to fulfill our need!

Celia and all the other bereaved Fitzbillies Chelsea Bun lovers of the world.
