CELEBRATES WITH TWO NEW JAMAICA BLUE OFFERINGS

A new café has launched and an existing Jamaica Blue relaunched in recent months, giving our Sydney customers two convenient opportunities to refuel with fantastic food and coffee!

Miranda Westfield café gets a makeover

jamaicablueescape | Summer 2016/17

I

t goes without saying that our Miranda Westfield cafés hold special significance for the Jamaica Blue family. After all, Miranda is not only the location of our very first store, but it’s also the site of our 100th café. Yes, you read that correctly: as the home of two separate Jamaica Blue cafés, Miranda Westfield gives shoppers the opportunity to sample our range from two distinct locations. One café is on level one near

the fresh food section, the the other on level two near Coles. Talk about convenience! Situated 24km south of Sydney’s CBD, around a 45-minute drive, Miranda Westfield is one of Sydney’s largest Westfield shopping centres, and is located just a short walk from the train station. Breathing new life into the original café, which first opened its doors in 1992, is brand new franchisee Gary Verma, who

has taken the reigns after the premises underwent a complete renovation. The elements of the original design have been replaced by a subtler imagining of the Caribbean, in keeping with the brand’s newer style. "What hasn't changed however, is our café's commitment to delivering delicious, fast meals, snacks and drinks to keep you nourished and satisfied on your shopping adventure at Miranda Westfield" says Gary.

supporting many local producers by sourcing a lot of our fresh, seasonal ingredients from suppliers in the Narellan region. We use a butcher from within the centre, a local milk provider, and a green grocer in the area as well for all our beef products, eggs, bacon and fresh fruit and vegetables used in dishes like our Big Breakfast, salads, wraps and tarts.” From globally sourced coffee

beans to healthy salad and sandwich options, sweet treats, and a popular kids’ menu, Amy adds that Jamaica Blue specialises in providing great coffee and classic café dishes with a twist. “There really is something to cater to everyone while you get to just unplug and unwind with us for a bit,” says Amy. “We’re thrilled to bring the Jamaica Blue experience to Narellan!”

Celebrating 25 years in business in 2017 As a premium coffee shop brand owned and operated by Foodco, Jamaica Blue is one of Australia’s most successful retail franchise companies, and in 2017 we will celebrate 25 years in business. With a growing network of more than 165 cafés in Australia, New Zealand, China, the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, Singapore and the UK, Jamaica Blue and its franchise partners worldwide

are committed to using fresh, locally sourced ingredients in each and every café. Try the difference for yourself next time you spot one of our cafés!

ur newest café to join the Jamaica Blue stable, located in Narellan Town Centre, opened its doors to the public in September 2016 – and already the response from customers has been overwhelmingly positive! Operated by 10-year Wollondilly residents (and firsttime Jamaica Blue franchise partners) Amy Roams and David Hunt (pictured above), the stylish new café has been strategically situated in an area where local shoppers most need a coffee pick-me-up: right next to the affordable homewares empire that is Kmart! After shopping up a storm you can recharge with a light meal, snack or satisfying drink, says Amy. “We want our customers to feel relaxed and looked after while they enjoy time-out with our great coffee and freshlymade food selection, which we’ve chosen ourselves from the Jamaica Blue range,” says Amy. “We love the fact we’re

These new dishes are just two that are joining a list of delicious meals on offer at Jamaica Blue cafés in Malaysia! Jamaica Blue is well on its way to making a name for itself in Malaysia as the place to not only find great tasting coffee, but to also track down tasty meals that abound in fresh produce and high quality ingredients. These flavourful menu creations were first introduced as part of a small seasonal menu addition, which was offered in April and May 2016. Back in March, a selection of media, bloggers and other VIP guests were given a sneak peek of the sensational seasonal

Needless to say, the dishes were a hit with the guests who included a number of leading journalists and tastemakers in the Malaysian food scene as well as representatives from HCK Capital Group. In fact, some of the dishes proved so popular that once the promotional period had ended, six meals were incorporated into the new menu launched at all three café premises in Malaysia: Mid Valley Megamall, Plaza Low Yat, and Setia City Mall in Shah Alam.

Thai Chicken Noodle Salad One of our all-time favourite salad recipes is our refreshing Thai Chicken Noodle Salad.

simply summer Summer entertaining at home should be all about having a good time. Jamaica Blue’s Executive Chef Danika Heslop says to forget the fuss, and follow the rule of ‘keeping it simple’. By John Burfitt

JB42-p09-11_Spring Table.indd 9

“Fuss. I just can’t stand fuss in the kitchen or on the table when you are entertaining in summer,” Danika admits with a laugh. “This is a time when the real focus should be on the family and friends you are enjoying a great meal with, so you need to take a simple approach to what you are serving.”

The summer months in Australia serves up plenty of reasons for celebration. First there are the weeks of Christmas parties leading up to the festive season, followed by the heady days of Christmas and Boxing Day, followed by New Year's, and the holiday weeks of January, topped off by the festivities of the

he colours, the smells, the textures and of course the fresh tastes – that’s what Danika Heslop, Jamaica Blue’s Executive Chef, admits she loves most about entertaining at home through the summer months. And when it comes to what she doesn’t like, she’s just as clear.

Australia Day long weekend. Then the long, hot days of February lend themselves to much more of the same. With the range of fresh produce that is in abundance at the markets throughout these summer months, Danika insists that keeping it simple but delicious should never be a problem. “Just get inspired by all the fruits and vegetables that come into season,” she says. “When it comes to hosting a lunch or a dinner at home, let the tastes of the food do most of the work in keeping everyone happy, rather than slaving away on complicated recipes in the kitchen for hours on end on a hot summer day.” Seafood is always high on the

list of Danika’s favourite summer foods, especially prawns, yabbies, Balmain bugs, salmon and barramundi. There is one dish, inspired by the Swedish heritage of her husband Nick, which she says remains the top choice in the Heslop home through summer. Danika calls it, “the perfect combination of ease and taste,” explaining it’s based on the traditional Swedish fish dish, Skagen but given an Aussie twist. “The Swedes will often make it with scampi, but we love it with small prawns,” Danika explains. “Essentially, it is just the small prawns chopped up, mixed with dill and aioli and served on fresh toast, with a simple squeeze of lemon juice. “We just love it and this proves that simple can be wonderful. When I have served this for friends at home, the usual response is they ask for more!” Danika adopts the same

approach to putting fresh produce of the season on her summer entertaining table. “Make the most of the range of vegetables at this time of year, and don’t overdo your approach,” she advises. “Something like lightly steamed sweet potato or asparagus, covered in a dash of olive oil with a squeeze of lemon, and a pinch of salt and pepper – and that’s ready to go. You can not get more simple than that, and yet watch the way it disappears once you serve it.” This is proof that her philosophy of keeping it simple does work after all. “Delicious, fresh foods full of great tastes do not need any fuss – it just makes sense to enjoy the foods for what they are,” she says. “It also helps you have a good time because of the people who are there sharing simple, easy food that is full of taste.”

arrive, the easier – and more fun – the day ahead will be. “The more work you can do well in advance, before anyone has stepped through the front door, the better it is for everyone – especially you. Many

people get overwhelmed when preparing for a lunch or dinner, as they try to do too much on the spot when the guests are already there. Try to have it all prepared as this will make the day easier.”

22/10/2016 13:10:18


THE SIGNATURE HARVEST COLLECTION Jamaica Blue’s Signature Harvest Collection (pictured around this page) offers the very best of the season with a special focus on healthy eating.

“This is again putting the focus on what is simple but tastes great,” Danika says. “It is about fresh ingredients and keeping everything as unprocessed as possible. “This is what people want at this time of year. They want foods with lots of taste but that they know are light and will not weigh them down on a hot summer day.” Jamaica Blue has taken a ‘three-three’ approach to this new Signature Harvest menu. It is about offering three strong dishes for breakfast and lunch, and not forgetting sweet treats. Individual cafés will have at least one dish from each of these three options on their menu. The breakfast options consist of sweet and savoury bowls – sweet with the Super Fruit Bowl (pictured bottom right) complete with strawberries and banana, while the savoury is the Vitality Bowl of

quinoa, tomato and egg. The third is a dairy-free smoothie made from coconut water, almond milk and blueberries. “These are options that offer people a great way to start the day with delicious foods that are fueling their systems in all the right ways,” she adds. At lunchtime, the three offerings are the Zucchini Garden Salad, Ocean and Earth Salad and the Enrichment Bowl of pumpkin, corn, egg, feta and cabbage. The sweet tooth is also in for a treat, with the three options of a Blueberry Honey Spelt Bar, a Seed & Nut Bar, and a Dark Chocolate and Fruit Bar. “There is only a little bit of chocolate in them, but the taste carries through and that is what counts,” Danika says. “We wanted sweets that people could treat themselves with but know they are staying on the healthy journey with us.”

fter running the Gourmet Food Safari tours through various Sydney and Melbourne neighbourhoods for almost 20 years, dealing with excited visitors is nothing new to its creator Maeve O’Meara (above). But the food guru and TV presenter admits there is one piece of feedback she regularly receives and no matter how often she hears the comment, it

JB42-p12-14_Food Tours.indd 12

still manages to thrill her. “When people make comments after our Vietnamese tour in Sydney’s Cabramatta that they kept forgetting they were not in Vietnam, I think that is wonderful,” O’Meara says. “It means they have let themselves go with the experience and just let the flavours and tastes carry them away, and yet they have not left their own city. “We have all the flavours of the

world right here, and on a Food Safari, you can taste them all, but then go home and sleep in your own bed that night!” Gourmet Food Safaris explore a range of cuisines and cultures through a range of different areas of Sydney and Melbourne. The tours take in delicatessens, coffee shops, bakeries, butchers and markets, and usually wind up with a chat with an acclaimed local chef and a banquet feast.

22/10/2016 13:10:56


The most popular Sydney tour is the French Gourmet Food Safari, which takes in some of the best French eating spots across the city. The Vietnamese Safari through the streets of Cabramatta in the city’s southwest is another perennial favourite. Other safaris include a Turkish Safari in Auburn, Greek Safari in Marrickville, Spice Safari in Strathfield, Korean in Eastwood and Lebanese in Punchbowl. In Melbourne, foodies are lining up for the Gourmet Food Safari World in a Day tour, which starts with a coffee at Guy Grossi’s famed Cellar Bar, before dropping in on Spanish, Portuguese, Polish and Lebanese restaurants. Also on the Melbourne menu is Italian in Carlton and Greek in Oakleigh. Maeve is best-known for her years of work on television,

safaris is they embrace the many nationalities living within our biggest cities. “What I hope the safaris do through food is help create a better understanding of the people who have come to Australia and what they have left behind, but also the richness of their own cultures they have left behind,” Maeve says. “What I really love is to find new flavours. My background is similar to a lot of Australians – a very Irish heritage - and I grew up with very plain food, but am lucky to live in a city where we have people from all over the world. The revelations we have made in the past few decades have been astounding, not to mention delicious,” she adds with a laugh. According to Maeve, the social benefits of embracing the cultures and cuisines that make up the modern face of Australia can never be underestimated. “I could not have predicted the food revolution in Australia, and it has come at the right time, just as people want to learn more and understand more about it,” she says. “TV has been a great teacher and has shown a way of things coming together. “There is an understanding that comes with being in a different place and seeing the way other people live through understanding how they eat. I have actually watched that light bulb go on with some people during a safari, and I love that as I feel I helped make that happen. Taste buds can be a very powerful thing in making an understanding of each other happen.”

having hosted seven seasons of the popular series Food Safari, as well as Food Lover’s Guide to Australia and Better Homes and Gardens. She has also coauthored 12 books on food. Maeve conducts many of the Food Safari tours, along with a team of tour leaders who are experts in their own cultures. “Our guides are usually from the background we are featuring,” she explains. So successful has the Sydney and Melbourne Food Safari business become that the enterprise has now spread to a series of International Gourmet Food Safaris in Turkey, Vietnam, the Greek Islands and Sardinia & Corsica.

travel in 2017 THE TOP 10 TRENDS

From bleisure travel to Pinspiration and the world’s first robot hotel, here’s what travel will look like in 2017. By Shane Conroy

1. BLEISURE TRAVEL Blurred boundaries between work and life are not always a bad thing. While 24/7 connectivity means your boss is only ever a swipe of a smart phone away, there are benefits to be reaped as work and life become one. ‘Bleisure’ travel will emerge as a major travel trend in 2017

JB42-p16-18_TRAVEL.indd 16

as time-poor professionals increasingly look to add personal leisure time onto business trips. Whether you choose to ‘bleisure’ solo or fly in your family after the deals are done, you’ll save on airfares and need to take fewer days off work – which is good news for your employer too.

22/10/2016 13:11:40


2. HIGH-TECH HOTELS

JB42-p16-18_TRAVEL.indd 17

speed wi-fi will improve in-room entertainment as limited lists of house movies are replaced with the infinite choices of streaming services.

3. FAREWELL GIFTS Brand loyalty has become a marketing buzz word of late, and some hotels will up their game in 2017 with farewell gifts

offered to guests to help you remember your stay – and their hotel – fondly. Expect anything from personalised confectionery, a bottle of wine from a nearby vineyard, or even theatre tickets for your next stay.

4. PINSPIRATION While online travel websites have

www.jamaicablue.com.au

Hotels have been embracing new technology such as smart cards and in-room tablets in recent years, but the trend to high-tech travel will accelerate in 2017. Expect to see some forwardthinking hotels replace smart cards with RFID-equipped wristbands that will unlock your room as you approach, and high-

jamaicablueescape | Summer 2016/17

8. THE DIGITAL DETOX

18

heralded the end of the travel agent era, social media platform Pinterest is likely to land the final blow. More travellers are turning to the website to plan their entire trips. It’s as easy as searching a destination that appeals to you and collecting experiences that have been handpicked by other users. It’s a great way to go beyond the guidebook – and Google – to plan a unique trip that’s tailored to your personal taste.

6. RIDE SHARING

5. VOLUNTOURISM

7. ROBOT HOTELS

For many socially conscious travellers, sitting by the pool with a cocktail in hand just doesn’t cut it any more. Rather, adventurous travellers are looking to change the world while they see it. That’s led to a rise in volunteer tourism – or ‘voluntourism’ – companies that connect travellers with exotic volunteering experiences, such as lending a hand at an elephant sanctuary in Thailand or helping build a school in Uganda.

Yep, you read that correctly. Japan is leading the trend to fully automated hotels with the Hennna Hotel located just outside Nagasaki. In a world first, the automated hotel has replaced 90 per cent of its human staff with robotic porters that whisk your luggage to your room, robotic bellboys that deliver room service, and voice-controlled in-room robots that handle basic commands. However, the art of bed making is still a road too far for the robotic revolution, so human

JB42-p16-18_TRAVEL.indd 18

Uber may have transformed how you get around your home city, but the ride-sharing trend is set to hit the travel industry in 2017. Emerging websites such as www.blablacar.com will offer travellers the opportunity to cut costs and meet new people by carpooling between cities – or even between countries. It’s also a great way to connect with local drivers who can give you the inside tips to get the most out of your destination.

If you need to recover from your stay in a robotic hotel, you’re a good candidate for the next big travel trend of 2017 – digital detoxes. While wellness retreats have been all the rage in recent years for ridding our bodies of the toxic effects of modern living, digital detoxes focus on mental wellbeing. Digital detox retreats confiscate your digital devices on arrival, and banish all screens for the duration of your stay to provide valuable disconnected downtime.

9. CULTURAL TRAVEL Fancy running with the bulls in Spain, or getting covered with coloured powder during India’s Holi Festival? You’re not alone. It seems 2017 will be the year of cultural travel as people forgo the long lines at the typical postcard landmarks for more immersive cultural experiences. It’s all part of the search for authenticity – and social media posts that will stand out from the usual ‘here’sme-in-front-of-a-bridge’ selfies.

10. IN-FLIGHT WI-FI In-flight entertainment will no longer be limited to dog-eared magazines and a limited selection of flight-friendly films. Qantas and British Airways both plan to roll out high-speed wi-fi in 2017, which means passengers will be able to Facebook, Tweet, stream and game their hearts out during flights. But you might want to pack your noisecancelling headphones.

top 5 australian open moments

As the Australian Open gets set to take over Melbourne’s Rob Laver Arena (pictured above) this 16 to 29 January, we take a stroll down memory lane to reveal our top five Australian Open moments. By Shane Conroy

1990:

jamaicablueescape | Summer 2016/17

McENROE IS DISQUALIFIED

20

John McEnroe was infamous for his short on-court fuse, and his temper was on full display during the 1990 Australian Open. Early in his fourth round match against Mikael Pernfors, the perennial bad boy of tennis was cited for intimidating a lineswoman. McEnroe’s second warning came in the fourth set when chair umpire Gerry Armstrong cited him for racquet abuse. That was enough for the US tennis star to completely

JB42-p20-21_Sport.indd 20

blow his stack and he berated Armstrong for an extended period. That was strike three and McEnroe became the first misbehaving player to be disqualified from a Grand Slam event since 1963. To add insult to injury, he was leading Pernfors when he was disqualified.

1993: SELES REIGNS SUPREME

the match ranked number-one in the world, but Graf asked plenty of questions of the defending champ as the tightlycontested match was fought out predominately from the base line. But Seles would eventually reign supreme, winning her third straight Australian Open title. The win would also mark her eighth Grand Slam title out of the last 11 she’d competed in.

One of the fiercest rivalries in women’s tennis came to a 1995: climax when Monica Seles met Steffi Graf in the final of the 1993 SAMPRAS BREAKS DOWN US tennis champion Pete Australian Open. Seles entered

22/10/2016 13:12:34


Sampras wore his heart on his sleeve when he famously broke down in tears during a 1995 quarterfinal match against Jim Courier. Sampras’ coach – Tim Gullikson – had taken an emergency flight back to the US after suffering a stroke caused by a brain tumour. The emotion and the pressure of the match overwhelmed Sampras in the decisive final set and the multiple Grand Slam winner broke down into sobs. Courier – who was good friends with Sampras – offered to postpone the final set to the following day, but Sampras elected to power on. Remarkably, he recovered to win the match and went to defeat Michael Chang in the semi final before falling to eventual champion Andre Agassi in the final. Sadly, Gullikson passed away a little over a year later.

Sampras lost the match despite hitting 37 aces throughout the match.

2008: HEWITT UP LATE Australian star Lleyton Hewitt (pictured below) was known for his on-court tenacity and neversay-die attitude, and this was displayed in full force during his marathon third-round match

against Marcos Baghdatis. The match began just before midnight and continued through the night until 4.33am – the latest ever finish to Grand Slam match – as they traded blows in the tightly contested match. With both men, and the 5,000-strong crowd, on the brink of exhaustion, Hewitt narrowly claimed victory with a fifth-set win.

2000: AGASSI SHOWS HIS METTLE US compatriots Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras met for the 29th time when they opposed each other in the final of the 2000 Australian Open. While Sampras held a slight career edge over Agassi having won 17 of their previous encounters to his rival’s 11 wins, the match would be destined to go down on Agassi’s highlight reel as one of the great come-back victories. After Sampras steamrolled Agassi in the third set tiebreak to take a two-set lead, it appeared victory was well within his grasp. However, Agassi dug deep to force a decisive fifth set, which he won to clinch the title. Remarkably,

There’s no shortage of musicals playing on stages throughout this summer and coming year to keep the country alive with the sound of music. By John Burfitt

t’s a new chapter on the Australian musical stage right now, with the biggest slate of new musicals scheduled to open over the coming year than we have seen in years. After the hit success of Dream Lover, other new musicals to open in the coming months include Kinky Boots, The Book of Mormon, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical and an all-new production of the classic Cabaret. There is also two new Australian works on the way as well - Ladies in Black and the

musical adaption of the screen classic, Muriel’s Wedding. “This is such an exciting time for Australian audiences to be able to see this wealth of new musicals, that are so different and show off a diverse range of music and stories,” says veteran publicist Ian Phipps. “As much as it’s always exciting to see a great revival, when a new show arrives there is always a great buzz from audiences to explore what it’s all about.” And there will be plenty of exploring ahead in the coming year. It’s been a long wait in the

case of The Book of Mormon, which first opened on Broadway in 2011, and will open at Melbourne’s Princess Theatre in January. This is the show by South Park team Matt Stone and Trey Parker that was credited with breathing new life into traditional musicals, by taking an outrageous and often expletiveladen view of the life of a group of Mormon missionaries.

Ladies in Black finally has its Sydney season when it opens at the Lyric Theatre in January. The show, by acclaimed singersongwriter Tim Finn, of Crowded House fame, tells of life in a Sydney department store as the drab 1950s gives way to the revolution of the 1960s. The musical has already won the Helpmann Award as Best New Australian Work. Also in January is the all-new production of the classic Cabaret, starring Paul Capsis at the Hayes Theatre.

As the cost of weddings skyrocket, more couples are choosing to take a do-it-yourself approach to their big day. By Shane Conroy

T

he average Australian wedding costs a whopping $65,482. That’s according to the latest Bride to Be 'Cost of Love' survey, and the reason why young couples are increasingly searching for ways to cut the costs of their big day. As many struggle under the weight of university debts, firsthome mortgages and the costs of starting a family, more young couples are taking a do-ityourself approach to organising their weddings – and saving big

money. Just ask Jacqui Hartwell, founder of Upcycled Bride (www.upcycledbride.com. au), an Australia-based online marketplace for brides to buy and sell a wide range of preloved wedding supplies. “You really don’t have to spend big to create a magical wedding day,” she says. “My DIY wedding cost just $12,000. That’s a saving of $53,000 on the average Australian wedding – enough for a deposit for your first home!”

THE DIY CHALLENGE Kim Oakhill couldn’t agree more. She had such a positive experience organising her own wedding that she now joins other couples in blissful matrimony as a marriage celebrant (www.kimoakhill.com). Kim chose her family’s 25-acre Port Macquarie property as the setting for her DIY wedding, and wanted the day to truly reflect their unconventional style – which included Converse wedding shoes, matching tattoos for the bride and groom, and the

driveway, never to be seen again!” Keeping a sense of humour in the face of wedding-day challenges is vital to successfully pull off a DIY wedding, and Kim solved her catering problem with a quick call to Dominos for 60 home-delivered pizzas.

A HAPPY MEDIUM

JB42-p26-27_DIY Weddings.indd 27

Jacqui Hartwell, founder of Upcycled Bride (www.upcycledbride.com.au), shares her top tips to save money on a DIY wedding. 1. BUY A PRE-LOVED DRESS “You can save thousands of dollars by buying a pre-loved designer dress that has been worn once. Most brides have professional photos and video to remember their wedding day, and are choosing to on-sell the dress to recoup even more of the costs.” 2. DRESS YOUR WEDDING PARTY “A lot of brides choose to sell their bridesmaids’ and groomsmen’s outfits as a package deal. This represents huge savings, and can also save you a lot of time. Just pick a theme you love and head to the tailor for some inexpensive alterations.” 3. SAVE ON DECORATIONS “There are so many beautiful pre-loved wedding decorations for sale on Upcycled Bride. For my wedding, I bought 150 handdecorated jars for just $50. I resold them after my wedding so they basically cost me nothing, and they saved me a lot of time as all the hard work had already been done for me.”

bride arriving on the back of a Vespa. But organising her own wedding wasn’t all fun and games, explains Kim. “We didn't really consider the fact that when you don't have a venue, you have to bring absolutely everything in yourself - everything from tables and chairs down to salt and pepper shakers. “But the biggest hiccup was with the catering. The caterers ran out of food after only 45 minutes and took off down the

But if ham and pineapple is not on your dream weddingday menu, you might want to consider an on-the-day wedding coordinator. They’ll be there on your wedding day to handle any challenges that may arise – at a fraction of the cost of a traditional wedding planner. “We help couples build a timeline up to their big day, troubleshoot problems, identify anything they may have overlooked, and confirm bookings with vendors,” says Francie Ellis, founder of New Zealand-based specialist on-theday wedding coordinators Blume and Darling (www.blumedarling. co.nz). “It’s really the best of both worlds. You get the peace of mind that comes with hiring a wedding planner, but retain ultimate control over all the details of your wedding – and the time to enjoy it.” For Kim Oakhill, while her big day was thoroughly enjoyed by all, if she had her time again, she’d call in some extra help. “There really is so much work involved,” she says. “I'd consider hiring a venue and a stylist to do all the heavy lifting, and perhaps just DIY the little personalised elements on the day to relieve the pressure on family and friends.”

Could Airbnb be your ticket to financial freedom? For some, it might be unthinkable to let strangers holiday in their home – but others are making serious money from this crowdsourcing site, writes Rachel Smith

jamaicablueescape | Summer 2016/17

f you’ve ever sat on the couch, looked around your home and thought you should put it on Airbnb and make a motza, you’re not alone. The online community has lured 2 million-plus listings worldwide since launching in 2008, and love it or hate it, there’s no doubt the platform is a money-maker for many. “I’ve absolutely seen people make a living from Airbnb,” says Oliver Lee from Host My BnB (www.hostmybnb.com.au). “I think those who do it have either been established a long time, or care and understand the guest experience.”

JB42-p28-29_Finance.indd 28

And, probably lucky enough to have access to several properties they can bounce between during bookings!

Are you sitting on an Airbnb goldmine? Success as a host comes down to a range of key factors - good location for starters, Lee says. “You’ll have a higher rental yield if you’re based in the city or by the beach, and you’re close to transport. Your property doesn’t have to be brand new; homes that are a bit eclectic or have character can do very well.” And while personality is good, too much of it deters guests, so

you’ll want to declutter, remove personal photos and ditch the floral sheets. But it’s not just down to your funky Danish couch and 300-thread Egyptian linen. “Providing a good service, building trust and having great reviews are more important,” Lee adds.

3 ways to fail… fast! 1. Dropping the ball. “People under-estimate how much work is involved in being a good host,” says Lee. “If you decline too many bookings, don’t update your calendars or don’t have enough reviews, it’ll affect your rankings.”

22/10/2016 13:15:59


2. Being sloppy. “It has to be hotel standard cleanliness. Say you open the cutlery drawer and it has a few crumbs in it. Even if the cutlery is clean, those crumbs could mean a bad rating from a guest.” 3. Operating in a saturated area. “The increasing popularity of Airbnb has some hosts worried, but good location and providing a good service will always help, Lee says. “Even better if you can offer something unique.”

Insurance: do you need it? Absolutely. Your home insurance won’t cover short term letting and Airbnb’s $10 million limited liability insurance is notoriously hard to claim on. If you pay an agent to manage your listing they may have insurance, or consider IAG’s Share Cover,

“In a good month I can make $10,000 from it”

Want to do it, but no time? It’s not just about the perfect property; you have to communicate with and greet guests, manage bookings and clean. Don’t want to do all that? Agents like Lee can step in – and might even generate more in bookings for you. “We took over one property in North Sydney where the host was making $2,000 a month on Airbnb and we ended up generating about $2,200 for him after our management fees,” he recalls. “So we helped him make more money and took 100 per cent of the work away from him.”

like beers in the fridge, a bottle of wine, a Lonely Planet guide of Sydney. My advice to anyone thinking of doing Airbnb is talk to people who have success on it, get your pricing right, get good photos taken and be a good communicator. Oh, and make sure you and your partner are on the same page about it – if you’re not I reckon you could lose a marriage over it!”

“I live off my Airbnb properties” Properties: Loughmore Cottage (www.airbnb.com.au/ rooms/14174034) and Milson’s Point studio (www.airbnb.com.au/ rooms/8639646). Freelance graphic designer Justine Ramsay is an Airbnb newbie but has grown to love the platform. “I have two very different listings – a cosy cottage with a fireplace in Kangaroo Valley and a slick studio in Sydney’s Milson’s Point. In a good month I can make $4,500 from both properties combined and I’m living off my earnings most of the time, while moving between the properties to stay in them myself and service them. I love Airbnb and not just for the new income stream it’s given me. I get a little thrill whenever I get a booking and meeting the guests is lovely.”

www.jamaicablue.com.au

Property: Manly Beach Pad (www.airbnb.com.au/ rooms/754387). Lonely Planet photographer Mike Taylor and his wife Olivia were early adopters to Airbnb and their Heritage-listed art deco pad in Sydney’s Manly Beach continues to be super popular. “People love having a fully stocked kitchen, all the mod cons and being just a block from the beach and the ferry. If we get a month’s booking we can make $10,000; more in peak season. We’re big on the guest experience, with little touches

which costs between $3-6 a day during the booking. For extra peace of mind, it’s something many hosts consider a nobrainer.

Time to Negotiate at work and love Negotiating is something we do countless times a day, so it pays to get better at it. Here’s how to do it right, writes Rachel Smith

ow often have you backed down from asking your boss for a raise you know you deserve? Or, maybe you avoided talking to your partner about something that bothers you? Or perhaps you opted to just take the price on the car you really wanted because it was less stressful than trying to wrangle a better deal? If any of those scenarios sound uncomfortably familiar, you’re not alone. Negotiating – be it with work colleagues, clients or loved ones – doesn’t come naturally to all of us. In fact, a recent study from the

JB42-p32-33_ Negotiation.indd 30

University of Pennsylvania found the top emotion people experience when negotiating is anxiety. No wonder many of us try to get out of doing it whenever possible! But, while we pretend we can’t do it and aren’t good at it, it’s actually a completely natural skill, says Gavin Presman, author of Negotiation: How to Craft Agreements that Give Everyone More (Allen & Unwin, 2016). “The problem with negotiation is we listen too much to our thinking which points us to our fear and worry about what people might think or say,” he

explains. “I’m convinced we all know how to negotiate when we’re not listening to the voices in our heads that tell us there’s something wrong, or we shouldn’t be asking for what we want, or having the feelings we’re having.” Becoming aware of our thinking, its role in our moods and our ability to ignore those runaway thoughts that threatens to steer us off course, is key in a good negotiation. “That’s where writing down your needs and the needs of the other person can be really helpful and it’s a nice way of

M

arriage breakdowns are an obvious example; often we have to grapple with people we no longer like or respect over things like property, custody of children or maintenance payments. Presman agrees these are tough. “You can’t really negotiate with somebody who is not feeling equal to you; that’s not negotiation. That’s arguing

Similarly, using the word ‘if’ can also be useful in a negotiation to test an idea or offer up a variable to sweeten the deal. This can be used in business or at home. “Using the phrase, 'if you…, then I…’ will help make this bargaining conditional and demonstrate the mutually beneficial element of the arrangement.”

Tips on negotiating with the ones you love getting ‘unstuck’ if you’re in your head a lot,” he adds.

How important is language in a negotiation?

JB42-p32-33_ Negotiation.indd 31

agreements that work in your home.”

Top 3 Tips to becoming a better negotiator Presman says the top three things you need to work on are: 1. Negotiate in a good mood. “Never do it when you’re tired or feeling low. That’s critical. We forget it all the time and it’s probably at the heart of most arguments we have with loved ones!” 2.Don’t plan to ‘win’. “We think in order to get something from someone we have to ‘win’, but we forget life doesn’t really work that way. You get far more from being collaborative.” 3. Don’t go in fighting. Approaching a negotiation with a combative stance is the biggest mistake we make. “We’re often only present to what we need and then it’s easy to get gripped in our own thinking; but negotiations go nowhere unless you can connect with the other person.”

www.jamaicablue.com.au

Just stating your intention to negotiate is key, with phrases like, ‘I know it’s important for both of us to reach an agreement that works today’ or ‘I really want to make sure we can find a way to make this work for both / all of us’. “If you share your intention [to collaborate], you’ll build trust, accelerate rapport and lubricate the whole process,” says Presman.

First and foremost, Presman says you need to remember that when you’re crafting agreements with your partner and/or your kids, it’s not a business deal – it’s personal. “So share your feelings, reiterate your love and express how important it is to find a way to live together happily and harmoniously… give time for everyone to speak and be heard.” He uses a ‘talking stone’ with his kids to ensure everyone gets a hold, has a chance to say their piece and feel they’re being heard. “This will be the cornerstone of making

or haggling. If someone feels superior to you or feels they need you less than you need them, you’re always going to be negotiating from a weak position where you have to give more. “That said, if you can see where they’re coming from and connect at a very deep level there’s a chance you can get them to see the humanity of the situation.”

As part of the launch of this new partnership Jamaica Blue hosted 15 high school students from Nepean CAPA as part of the Polish Program. The program saw the students descend on Jamaica Blue’s head office to take part in a oneday workshop to develop the

THE 15-MINUTE BEACH BODY

jamaicablueescape | Summer 2016/17

Shed that winter weight and get a beach-ready body in just minutes a day with Michelle Bridges’ HIIT workout. By Shane Conroy

34

High intensity interval training (HIIT) is the latest fitness trend that promises to deliver a beach-ready body in just minutes a day. We caught up with HIIT enthusiast Michelle Bridges, Australian Institute of Fitness ambassador and author of Food for Life, to get some expert tips.

JB42-p34-35_Fitness.indd 34

JB: What is high intensity interval training (HIIT)? MB: It's where you give your absolute all-out, gut-busting most for a set interval of time, then have a short rest, then smash it out of the park again. And you repeat these intervals of top effort followed by a short rest, for as long as you want your workout to be. JB: What benefits does it offer over other types of cardio? MB: It gets you really fit, really fast. Your body makes

adaptations in super quick time (adapt or die!), so you get results in a much shorter timeframe than other forms of 'old school cardio'. JB: How much time do you need to dedicate to it? MB: As much time as you want. You could use the original Tabata protocol of 20 seconds on, 20 seconds off for a total time of four minutes, through to a session of around 30 to 40 minutes. It's completely up to you, which is great because you can fit it into the time you

MICHELLE’S 15-MINUTE HIIT WORKOUT As a busy working mum, 15 minutes is something I can carve out of my day, whereas a 40-minute workout might not make the cut. I really like to mix up a combination of strength and cardio, and use a mix of weights and no equipment. 5X SQUAT CLEANS This exercise is usually performed with a barbell. Bend slightly at the knees and grip the barbell with your hands shoulder width apart. Straighten your body and pull the barbell up to your hips and then to your shoulders in one fluid movement. With the barbell resting on your shoulders, perform a squat and return to the starting position.

have - no excuses!

JB42-p34-35_Fitness.indd 35

JB: Do you have any tips for people about to start a HIIT program? MB: Keep it simple and keep it short to start. You want to choose exercises that you can execute with good form and technique, and that you enjoy. Decide if you want to focus on improving cardio, or strength, or if you want a combination of both, and choose exercises that align to that focus.

5X ICE SKATERS Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Jump to the right with slight bend in your knees and in the same motion reach your left hand down towards the outside of your right foot. Jump back to centre and repeat on your left side. REST FOR ONE MINUTE Repeat four times for a total workout time of 15 minutes.

www.jamaicablue.com.au

JB: What results are people likely to see? MB: It depends on what type of training the active part of the HIIT session is focused on. You might be doing sprints as your training, so the focus is going to be on explosive speed and cardiovascular fitness. Or you might be focused on deadlifts so your results are going to be an increase in strength. Or you might be doing a mixture of cardio and strength and in that case you

would be seeing improvements across that whole spectrum.

5X PULL UPS Grip an overhead bar with your hands shoulder width apart and your palms facing away from you. Use your shoulder and back muscles to pull yourself upwards towards the bar, then lower yourself back to the starting position in a slow, controlled movement.

oesophagus and lungs. Experts call this the ‘gut-brain axis’ and believe what’s going on the gut can impact on what’s happening in the brain. Swiss scientists also found that the composition of gut flora could trigger the development of Alzheimer’s disease, although studies are ongoing. Researchers at Oxford University and UCLA have both reported preliminary findings about the impact of gut bacteria on mental health. “There have been some interesting findings as well that suggest our gut bacteria can affect our mood and make us more prone to being anxious or calm,” practicing dietician Zoe Wilson explains. “We're still in the early stages of gut health research, but it's looking like our guts are one of the most important organs we have.”

Your gut and disease

W

e’re told the foundation to maintaining good brain health is as simple as exercising regularly, eating well, getting enough sleep and meditating for greater wellbeing and mental health. But an increasing range of evidence is pointing to the fact

JB42-p36-37_Fitness.indd 36

that we actually have a ‘second brain’ – the gut – which could impact everything from how sensitive we are to pain, to our moods and mental health. The gut is reportedly able to ‘talk’ to the brain via the vagus nerve – a cranial nerve which stretches from the brain to the stomach via the heart,

The gut is obviously responsible for the digestion of food and absorption of nutrients, but a whole range of new health studies linking the health of our guts to the health of our immune system, too – and potentially with diseases such as obesity, colorectal cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes. “There’s also a well-known link

22/10/2016 13:21:32


s

between stress and irritable bowel syndrome, with stress able to bring on diarrhea, nausea or stomach pains,” adds Wilson. “We can all experience the link though; just think of a time when you’ve been given bad news or had an argument and often your stomach drops or feels sick.”

How to have a happy, healthy gut The bottom line is to remember that your gut’s not going to be firing on all cylinders if you consume processed foods high in sugar and fat, refined grains, foods low in fibre, alcohol and antibiotics. “Good gut health is all about the 'good bacteria',” says Wilson. “There are approximately 100 trillion bacterial cells living in our GI tracts and we need to look after them, by focusing on prebiotic foods, probiotic foods and resistant starch.”

Probiotics These are the live microorganisms we can consume which populate our gut. How to get them into your diet: “There are many different strains obtainable through fermented foods, as well as some dairy and non-dairy

alternative products. Foods that contain probiotics are yoghurts (but check the label as heat treating can kill them), kefir, kimchi, tempeh, sauerkraut, and miso, as well as newer 'trendy' products that are infused with probiotic strains such as coconut yoghurts and kombucha. You can also take a probiotic supplement like Inner Health Plus or a drink such as Yakult.”

Prebiotics Prebiotics and resistant starch 'feed' the good bacteria in our gut. How to get them into your diet: “Prebiotics are the nondigestible fibre found in plant based foods like oats, psyllium husk or Jerusalem artichokes. Resistant starch is a nondigestible carbohydrate that is found in unripe bananas, cooked and then cooled grains such as sushi rice and cold pasta salads, as well as cooled potatoes, and legumes.” Basically, as with most health issues, if you're eating a diet full of unprocessed foods such as fruit, vegies, grains, legumes and dairy, you'll be doing a good job at looking after your gut – and the knock-on effects will be better brain health, too. www.zoewilsonnutrition.com

Hungry? Do your gut a favour! Jamaica Blue’s new Signature Harvest Collection - due out this summer - is ideal for anyone keen on maintaining good gut health. This exciting new menu of seasonal dishes is prepared fresh on site, and given each dish was created in accordance with the government’s Healthy Eating Guidelines, it’s a great way to help maintain good gut health – and, good health in general!

It’s important to remember that all aspects of our health and wellbeing are connected and should be nurtured as a whole. “I think it's extremely important to focus on eating a balanced diet,

including regular exercise and looking after your mental health so you have good wellbeing. Otherwise it's like putting fuel in the car but not pumping up the tyres,” says Wilson.

Ella’s Secret Family Recipes New Complete Baby & Author: Kay Bell. Toddler Meal Planner Publisher: Camponile Publishing. Kat Bower doesn’t know what to make of the family recipe book left to her by her late mother, Ella. Not much of a cook herself, Kat isn’t terribly excited to receive the collection of top-secret recipes passed down through the family line – until she reads between the lines. Once she learns that each recipe tells the extraordinary story of the woman who contributed it, Kat discovers more about her own story than she bargained for. Ella’s Secret Family Recipes is the ultimate exploration of how identity and heritage sometimes lie within the murky realms of persecution, understanding and love.

nterest in how food affects health and wellness has never been greater and this trend is having significant positive effects on the nature of the foods available through retail outlets. When looking for a snack at Sydney airport recently, I noticed just how much space had been dedicated to snacks made from whole foods compared to the traditional chocolate bars and bags of lollies – things really are changing for the better! With 1 in 4 of the dollars we spend on food going toward foods purchased outside the

home, demand for healthier options at cafĂŠs and restaurants is resulting in better choices in these areas too. Jamaica Blue is one cafĂŠ leading the way with the launch of its Signature Harvest Collection, a range of healthier options that will be available in stores from November. Food & Nutrition Australia has worked in partnership with the team at Jamaica Blue to develop guidelines for dishes to qualify to be included in the Signature Harvest Collection. The guidelines take into account the nutritional profile of the dishes along with the

quality and type of ingredients used to ensure the recipes reflect current healthy eating guidelines and are supported by scientific evidence. The guidelines also ensure the recipes are developed to meet customer expectations around the incorporation of more fruit, vegetables and whole grains while containing minimal, if any, additives, refined sugar and processed ingredients. The other key factor of course is that the team at Jamaica Blue were able to pull together great tasting, attractive meals and dishes while meeting the strict nutrition and quality guidelines

Food & Nutrition Australia’s involvement in the development of the Signature Harvest range was particularly rewarding when we saw the results of the full nutritional analysis following the recipe development phase of the project. The end result was confirmed as the range of dishes provide significantly

high amounts of the nutrients we need daily for good health, and all coming naturally from their focus on whole, fresh foods in the dishes. I’ve picked out a couple of my favourites to highlight as great choices when you’re seeking a healthy option at your next visit to Jamaica Blue. Ask instore for available dishes.

vitality bowl

for the day, as we generally eat different foods at breakfast, compared to what we eat at lunch and dinner. For those with a savoury palate, the Vitality Bowl provides an interesting, tasty, nutrient rich and satisfying option to start off the day. As this dish contains eggs, seeds, quinoa and fetta it provides almost half your day's protein requirements which helps keep you satisfied throughout the morning. It also provides a good amount of fibre for a healthy digestive system and is high in the B vitamins thiamin, riboflavin, niacin and folate which help with energy levels. It also provides

almost all of your day's needs for vitamin C, nearly two thirds of your daily requirements for vitamin A and is high in iron, zinc and calcium! Both of these dishes are also wheat free and suitable for vegetarians. The natural nutritional goodness of the Signature Harvest Collection is a great example of how preparing dishes with whole, natural foods can easily meet daily nutrient requirements without the need for supplements, powders or special potions. It becomes easy to eat well when natural, whole foods are turned into tasty dishes.

broad range of essential nutrients from natural whole foods. It’s high in calcium, zinc, phosphorus and magnesium – all essential nutrients for maintaining bone and muscle strength. It’s also high in iron for energy production and riboflavin to reduce tiredness and fatigue so is perfect for active people looking to replenish after exercise. Being based on zucchini, this salad also provides more than 100% of your daily needs for vitamin C, essential for protecting cells from free radical damage, while the vegetables as well as

the feta cheese and yoghurt make it high in vitamin A for healthy eyes and skin. Hard to believe you can get all this natural goodness from one dish, however, by using plenty of vegetables, along with dairy, seeds, herbs and olive oil this really highlights just how extensive the nutritional benefits of fresh foods are.

We know how important breakfast is for reducing the risk of getting overly hungry mid-morning and reaching for foods that may not be the best choices for optimal health. Eating breakfast also helps you meet your nutrient requirements
