Kids Cooking in Gippsland

Involving children in meal preparation has many benefits, according to local Gippsland chef, Jaci Hicken, who conducts her “Kids in the Kitchen” cooking program every school holidays in Mirboo Nth.

 Jaci says it's important to make sure kids have a fun and engaging time in the kitchen and that they learn to cook simple things to begin with. “Benefits include encouraging picky eaters to try new foods and educating kids about where their food comes from, so that they make better food choices when they are older,” she says.

 

Jacican Food Studio in Mirboo North, is holding its annual Fathers Day High Tea from 10am -6pm on Sunday 3rd September 2017.

I have just finished reading Sean Brock's Heritage, as I was inspired by his commitment and passion for his local produce and preserving Southern foodways and heirloom ingredients. Using his recipe for fried Chicken as a guide, I have put my own spin on it and added local to Gippsland seasonings.

I use Jindi farms Nine Mile seasoning or if I'm after a bit of a kick, their Hell's Gate rub.

Ingredients

1 litre water

50 gram salt

1 kg Chicken pieces – I like to use winglets and drum sticks

cornflour

Salt & pepper

600 ml butter milk

corn meal

vegetable oil fro deep frying.

Method

  1. make a brine out of the water and salt. Cover the chicken pieces with brine and leave in the fridge over night.
  2. Drain the brine from the chicken and rinse well under cold water. Dry the chicken pieces well.
  3. Make up your frying station. Using three containers place the corn flour seasonaled with salt and pepper in one, the butter milk the next and the corn meal in the last.
  4. Dust the chicken in the corn flour and shake off any excess. Next place the chicken in the butter milk to coat. Remove from buttermilk and finely place in cornmeal.
  5. Heat your oil to 190C in a deep fryer. Once the oil has reach temperature, fried the chicken in batches until golden brown. Remove from oil and drain well.
  6. Place fried chicken in metal bowl and toss through your desired seasoning
