I love to cook, I've always loved to cook.

As a young girl, my time was spent reading the cookbooks that mum kept in the bottom kitchen drawer. Always looking for a new recipe to try, a new food idea. Many weekends were spent making rainbow cakes with as many colours as possible – have you seen my Instagram, not much has changed, and looking for recipes that I could cook using what was available in the cupboard or from the vegetable garden.

At the aged of about 16, I remember stating that I wanted to leave the farm and travel the world. This would be followed by retiring by about 30 and moving back to South Gippsland to grow vegetables and cook. From 16 fast forward 20 years and I returned, starting Jacican Food Studio in Mirboo North, Gippsland where I grow vegetables and cook. This blog is where I share my food adventure.


Banana Bread 22

This is a recipe I share and you will bake in our Gluten-Free Baking class.

Not only is our banana bread gluten free but also dairy free, egg free and uses no processed sugar. So if you're after something to cook your vegan friends substitute the honey for a sweetener like a maple or rice syrup and suddenly you're vegan-friendly.
