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.


I was in need of a new ironing board and so, lo and behold, I met Julie Joyce at the Mirboo North Expo.

Julie produces a range of hand-made, custom ironing board covers and, as a hobby, also reconditions old, unloved ironing boards that she mostly finds put out in the hard rubbish collection. Julie just happened to have a 1970s retro orange board that she was willing to give me—and we all know how I love retro orange.

All her ironing board covers are strong, practical and perfect fits for bench boards, steam-press boards, Robinhoods, Frazers, Hills (now we are talking ironing board talk and I'm totally lost) and many more models. She is happy to custom make one. We all need an ironing board that matches the colour scheme of the ironing room, don't we? I know I do. Julie also makes re-useable mesh fruit & veg shopping bags, T-rope garden ties, handy bags, hats, art smocks...the list goes on.

As a passionate up-cycler of old clothes, linen and fabric, Julie now and then runs "Stitch It, Don't Ditch It" workshops, sharing her trade secrets on how to re-invent the old and create the new.

Operating under the brand Lik Lik Munki, you can find Julie's wares for sale at the Artisan Store, Mirboo North or online at her ebay store Lik Lik Munki.

I'm going to do some ironing now.

PS. No ironing boards were harmed during ironing and I did offer to pay for the board.
