Jacican's Story

Jacican is your bespoke food experience, a place to learn, share and eat. Join me from 9am - 5pm Friday, Saturday or Sundays for lunch or high tea.

Jacican can host your small private dinner, family get together or work function. I can also tailor make a private class, meal or corporate training event to you or your organisations needs.

Adult cooking classes will take your cooking to the next level. Whether it’s the secret of the perfect macaron, cream torte or even handmade lollies, I can be your guide. I’ll even teach your littlies during my school holiday Kids in the Kitchen classes.

This week I have started working on the August seasonal dinner - Curry in a un-Hurry. I'm always one for using the local product first, so just my luck that Phyll from Saffron Wills produces wonderful Saffron, just what a curry night needs to delight everyone's taste buds. I met her at the last Warragul Farmers Market, collecting a card for later use. 

Original from Greece, saffron is a spice derived from the flower of the Crocus sativus. Each flower contains three crimson stigmas, which we call the threads. Saffron is the most costly spice by weight as up to 170,000 flowers are needed to produce 1 kilogram of threads. The spice retails for about $5000.00 per kilogram.

Tiny jars of saffron

These two little vials of 100 threads each arrived. Now what should I make - saffron rice, saffron ice cream, saffron dumplings or saffron in a curry—any ideas?
