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

The Jubilee weekend is finally here and I have put up my bunting.  Most houses in the village are decorated now and it is looking very patriotic.  I am busy planning my canape menu for the concert on Sunday - mini yorkshires with roast beef, tomato and white bean tarts, smoked salmon pate, quails eggs with sumac - yum yum!  Yesterday my palace made a little appearance in the Times as part of their cake competition.  They described it as an "immense buckingham palace made of gingerbread, complete with waving monach and electric lighting" - how lovely is that!  I am looking forward to putting it on display over the weekend for everyone to see and eat!!  Hope you all have lots of fun this weekend!
