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 cannot believe how beautiful the autumn colours are this year - perhaps they are always this beautiful and I never noticed it before. Driving around the countryside this weekend it was such a breathtaking to see the orange, yellow and red hues on every tree. I was spoilt on Saturday as my lovely Mum treated me to afternoon tea at one of my favourite teashops - Teapots in Olney. What a feast with had with sandwichies, cakes, macaroons, scones and fresh berries and cream - and of course lots of tea to wash it all down with. What a treat!

Hi Hannah - I love afternoon tea - so much that I have started inviting friends for tea now, instead of lunch or dinner, (or maybe as well as, if truth be told). It's so lovely to be able to relax with beautiful china and mouth-watering delicacies! Did you spot Kirsty Wark's Pistachio meringues in the recent Celeb MC final? They are next on my list!!! Lucy

Lovely! I spoke at an afternoon tea at a hotel in London on Saturday and wish I had room for all the great treats we got!
