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.


At last nights new years eve barbeque, I was asked what was my 2017 milestone. And I couldn't think of one.

Now that I've had time to think about it my 2017 milestone, I know what it is

It is all of you.

I would like to thank everyone ...

that visited Jacican and taking part in a cooking class, eaten a meal or just popped in for a chat,

read an article I've written in Gippsland Country Life magazine,

anyone who has cooked a recipe from the magazine or off my blog,

anyone who has listened to me on ABC Gippsland and especially those of you who took the time to call in or look up my number and call me in the food studio to chat,

pledged to my non-successfully crowdfunding,

the people I have met, both in person and in here,

everyone that has liked, commented, shared the love on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter with me or Jacican.


Now it is time to move into 2018 and look forward to a new milestone. I wonder what it will be?
