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.

I've just finished up putting together the second of my three gluten free bliss ball recipes for the week and this time around they're date and almond flavored. With those two key ingredients rolled up and finished with a dusting of shredded coconut you've got a truffle like bliss ball that looks just as good as it tastes. So why not give my recipe a try? It makes 8 x 50 gram balls but feel free to roll them into whatever size suits your mouth. 

Date and Almond Bliss Balls



225 grams of Dates

60 grams of Almonds

20 grams of Cocoa

35 grams of Shredded Coconut

Place the dates in a heat proof bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave the dates to soak for 15 minutes or until soft and then drain away the water.

 Place the almonds into the food processor and process until they begin to form a paste.

Add the dates, cocoa and coconut then process until a thick paste is formed.

With damp hands or gloves (helps prevent the mixture sticking to your skin), roll the mixture into balls and then roll in shredded coconut to coat.
