A Jacican harvest lunch is a celebration of all that Gippsland and my kitchen garden has to offer.

Every day, I pick the produce that I need from the kitchen garden, watching the life-cycle of the garden. All my produce is grown using organic principles without the use of herbicides and pesticides. This method of gardening means my produce is flavourful and just how nature intended it to be. It does, however, leave me open to the elements, meaning uniform shapes and sizes cannot always be achieved – an aspect of my garden story that I am proud of.

I grow many different wild greens in the kitchen garden, including kale, lettuces, native greens and edible weeds. At the end of the garden, I have built a native herb garden as a windbreak, and as a place for the birds to live. There, you will find native herbs for your lunch. If you are lucky, you may spot a koala in the trees.

Gippsland farmers supply beef, lamb, pork and poultry directly to my kitchen. Further produce – bread, fruits, wine, beer and spirits are sourced directly from the people who make it to my kitchen door. I even forage in secret Gippsland locations as well!

This garden-to-plate cooking experience is suitable for all - those who are qualified chefs, home cooks, those who do not usually cook or just for those who would like to experience my way of living. The day includes foraging, harvesting, cooking, learning, eating and drinking. 

Vegan and Gluten-free harvest lunches are offered throughout the year.

Harvest lunches can be offered as a private lunch or dinner for groups of up to 8 guests. For more information on arranging a private harvest lunch, please contact Jacican.
