Last week saw my heat in Masterchef with the wonderful Clare and Bree (opposite) and I cooking at the Fish Market Restaurant in London. I can safely say it was one of the most stressful days of my life - I now have a complete understanding of the phrase "If you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen!" It was so great to spend time with Bree and Clare - two fellow foodies who share my love of cooking.
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
