Welcome to Jacican

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.


Hello. How are you going?

Lets eat cake

I have met many of you over the last 5ish years that Jacican has been in operation. For me it's been a slow process, starting with only being open for appointment, then on one Sunday a month. In 2015, I started opening every Sunday, with plans to extend open hours as soon as I could. But alas, things always happen in small business, or as I like to call them 'road blocks' occur.

Finally in November 2016, we over came Jacican's largest road block and gained a permit to trade Friday, Saturday and Sunday for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It was almost Christmas, so the business discussion was taken to hold off until now, before spreading the words to tell everyone - and I mean everyone - whats happen at Jacican.

So we made this commercial, to be play during Master Chef 2017 on the WINTV network, only for Gippsland (and to feed the internet).

Let me know if you see Jacican anytime this week or over the next 3 weeks on the WIN News Gippsland in either MasterChef Australia or the The Project. I would love it if you could tag someone who would love a cooking classes, share this post, comment (as long as it's nice) or just plain old LIKE it. There will be a Jacican cooking class gift voucher for two up for grabs.

While I was waiting for now to come around, I've been working on new cakes. This also could be called a new way of making the same cakes. This has led me to developing the cakes you will make as part of my domes cooking class. Black forest - with white chocolate mousse on the outside and bright shiny mirror glaze. I've made mine yellow today, but next week it maybe a differnet colour. I will even share with you the secret of how to make your own globe shaped glazed cake, like the one pictured.

Thanks for watching.


PS I will run this until Thursday 18th of May 2017, once week three of Master Chef AU has finished and randomly selected a name from the shares, comments, like and tags on the 19th of May. There will be a catch, you will have to be able to get your self to Mirboo North on a Saturday afternoon for a cooking class sometime over the following 12 months. This is for over 18 year olds only.
