Enough Is Enough

10-Day Pacific Islands Cruise – Carnival Legend

When the Inner West Mums Facebook group told me they’d raised enough money to send me and Noah on a “short break” I had no idea it’d be as extravagant as a 10-day Pacific Islands cruise. The closest I’d gotten to joining a cruise was when I was approached by another cruise line a couple of years prior about doing a TV commercial for them. Their » Read More

Video – Baby Noah on Channel Ten’s Studio Ten

This is the interview I did on Studio Ten last Friday regarding baby Noah and the controversy about having him with me at my markets (I haven't watched it; I steer clear of watching myself on TV). Noah was meant to have been in the studio with me but he was unusually unsettled that morning (typical!) so someone had to keep him company out in the » Read More

Déjà Vu All Over Again – Baby Noah Markets Controversy

(I’m tired, sleep-deprived and a bit emotional but I feel compelled to get this out so apologies for the inevitable rambling and incoherence.) How time flies. I just realised it’s been over a year since the debacle at OGM that saw an anonymous member of the public petition to have my Down Syndrome baby, Noah, removed from the market. ** The » Read More

New Idea Magazine Story

Today's New Idea Magazine has what I think is an important albeit non-food story about me. It is about my relationship with reality TV star Robb Demarest from Ghost Hunters International and Haunting:Australia. This is NOT a bad breakup story. My marriage to Noah's dad was a bad breakup and you've never heard me divulge the details nor name him » Read More

I’m Not Going Back to Orange Grove Market

This below is a copy of a newsletter I sent out to my subscribers overnight, and it's an update on a previous post - http://jackiem.com.au/2015/12/30/an-important-letter-to-my-customers/  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I'm very sorry to let you know that after having » Read More

Press Release: Jackie M Charity Wine Dinner in the Pyrenees

I've been invited by Rainbow Gallery Café in Victoria's Pyrenees wine region to do a Malaysian wine dinner on Saturday 5 September. After the media storm of the last couple of weeks over baby Noah, I've asked that part of the proceeds go towards Down Syndrome NSW. The 5 courses I'm preparing will be gluten-free, and if you book by 14 August, » Read More

Why You Shouldn’t Boycott Orange Grove Market

A week is a long time in social media. When I received the phonecall a week ago today about the pending complaint about baby Noah, I felt duty-bound to immediately inform my followers that I was going to quit my Saturday market. I posted the announcement across my social media accounts and within an hour or two the mainstream media had caught » Read More

Why I’m Quitting

I get asked all the time why I don’t operate at more markets or do more events and festivals. This is the first time I’m speaking about this in public. My online videos, TV appearances and travel are not so much exercises in vanity as they were a conscious decision made 2 ½ years ago to recalibrate my brand away from physical food production and » Read More
