About Jaci Hicken

With a passion for local produce and years spent honing her skills studying commercial cookery and working in catering, hotels, and restaurants, Jaci Hicken has some notches on her belt when it comes to kitchen mastery – and she’s keen to share her skills with anyone who is interested.


It all takes place in Mirboo North’s old dairy, now repurposed into a kitchen and food studio – which is perfectly appropriate, given that Jaci spent much of her childhood on a dairy farm in South Gippsland. And it also means that when it comes to sourcing the region’s best produce and native spices, Jaci is right at home (she even grows a lot of the produce herself).
