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 discovered a new ingredient this weekend - the Kiwiberry - it seems to be a cross between a grape and a kiwi and is actually quite yummy - very sour and sweet and juicy. I decided to make a salad with it last night which went really well with some steaks we were having.
Kiwiberry Salad
1 small bag rocket
3 spring onions finely chopped
1 large carrot, peeled and grated
10 kiwiberries, halveds (available in waitrose)
1 raw courgette, finely sliced (I love raw courgette!)
2 tbsp chopped corriander
2 tbsp chopped mint
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp caster sugar
salt and pepper to season
Toss all the salad ingredient together in a bowl. Whisk together the dressing and pour over the salad. It's as easy as that!!!
