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 morning I have to confess to having butterflies in my stomach. I am sitting at the Manchester Palace hotel as today I am making scones live on air on Radio 4's Womans Hour. It is a proramme I have long admired and it is such an honour to be invited on. I have a large tray of scones with me - cherry, sultana, cheese, plain and lavender and on the journey up to Manchester people kept asking if they could have one - must be a good sign. So if you have time this morning tune in to radio 4 between 10 and 11am to hear me hopefully making the perfect scones! Or Scon - depending how you pronounce it! Click here for the recipe webpage.

I've already tuned the dial! Love your blog and womans hour so what a perfect Friday - good luck I'm sure you'll be great.

I'm listening right now! Best of luck but it sounds like you don't need it - you're doing great!

Oh gosh! I heard that and didn't realise it was you!

It was delightful - I could just picture your fingers covered with scone mixture and Jenny with her mouth full!

I'm popping back to hear it again on iPlayer.


BTW I put home-made jam on first then the cream - and always a plain one! Butter only on fruit or cheese scones.

Glad it went so well. I put jam on first ... and love clotted cream too! :)

Thank you so much for your lovely comments and for tuning it - I had so much fun - Jenni was lovely and we did laugh at my dough covered hands. Some even ended up on the studio carpet - oops! Happy Scone baking
