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

Today is my lovely assistant Rachel's birthday so I made her this little cake - chocolate and cherry with white chocolate chips.  I came into work early and left it on her desk, surrounded by happy birthday sprinkles (which made a lot of mess that I am sure she won't thank me for).  It was very quick and easy to do, decorated simply with piped dark chocolate swirls and sugar flowers.  Happy Birthday Rachel xxx

Wow, her birthday cake is way too pretty!! I like that surprise too. Belated happy birthday to this little princess!! Thanks dear for sharing these photos. Well, I am also looking for outdoor San Francisco venues for my niece’s birthday celebration. It would be great if you could suggest some venues.
