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.


Sunday 10th June 2018

I work really hard to try and adapted the menu at Jacican when asked to suit everyone's dietary needs. back in January, I catered a function for the Southern Business Women's Network - meats & salad (it was a 40-degree day in the Meenyan town hall), followed by a dessert buffet. I know myself and Jacican, is very strong in dessert, so I used the occasion to high light the cakes and desserts Jacican has to offer.

From that function, and because I put some care into making sure everyone was included - all mains were gluten-free and vegetarian and there as a range of dairy free, gluten free, even process sugar-free dessert on offer. This has met that I have been asked to host an event on the Queens Birthday weekend - a dairy free, gluten free High Tea (Saturday).

As I will be making everything dairy free, gluten free for the private event, I have decided to open up the Sunday as Gluten-free, dairy-free High tea for everyone. many of the cake items will be Vegan, as well. Here is the menu ...

Chicken & cashew triangles, roast beef & chutney sandwiches, hummus carrot & beetroot ribbons
garden vegetable frittata & bruschetta
