Saigon market gutted By Benjamin Millar The community is rallying behind businesses and a charity devastated by the loss of the Little Saigon market. A blaze tore through the iconic market on Tuesday morning, sending palls of black smoke billowing across Footscray and Seddon. Fire crews were called to the marketplace about 6am after fire broke out in a refrigeration system above a cool room. Nearby residents were warned to close all doors, windows and vents as 75 firefighters battled for more than six hours before declaring the fire contained soon after noon. The blaze destroyed stock valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars, as well as thousands of school textbooks and Christmas presents that had been donated to the Les Twentyman Foundation. The Seddon Community Bank branch will set up a drop-off point for new donations to Les Twentyman’s charity at the Carols in the Yarraville Gardens event this Saturday. Vietnamese Community in Australia president Viv Nguyen said the market, which opened in 1992, had been an important meeting place for Melbourne’s Vietnamese Australian community. “For us, Footscray is a name that a lot of Vietnamese Australians hold dear,” she said. “I think it’s really important the community gets behind them.” Footscray Traders Association president and Littlefoot bar co-owner Stuart Lucca-Pope said the fire will have a flow-on effect throughout Footscray and beyond. “It will have a massive impact on traders in the lead-up to Christmas, especially for local traders who depend on it,” he said. “We source our goods from there. Thankfully, we have still got the Footscray Market, but a lot of produce is only available there at Little Saigon.” Mr Lucca-Pope said he wants to work with landlords in the area to determine whether any short-term arrangements can be made for trading to continue out of other premises. Loc Lam, co-owner of the Little Saigon building with Binh Le for more than 20 years, said he was devastated. “A terrible thing has happened,” he said. Mr Lam vowed to rebuild the market, which included 30 shops, as part of a Little Saigon redevelopment. Maribyrnong council approved plans in 2011 for a new $70 million mixed-use development of Little Saigon, which includes two towers of eight and 12 levels respectively, comprising 260 apartments, above a ground-level market.

Childcare approval a ‘system failure’: critics A decision to allow a childcare centre to be built at one of the city’s most polluted intersections signals a planning system failure, critics say. Star Weekly last week revealed the state’s planning tribunal had approved plans for a 170-place childcare centre on the site of a petrol station at the corner of Williamstown Road and Francis Street in Yarraville. The applicant, Southern Capital Corporation, appealed to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) after Maribyrnong council rejected its plan for a 206-place centre on the site. Maribyrnong Truck Action Group secretary
Martin Wurt said it was “madness” to allow a childcare centre to be built at an intersection passed by more than 8000 trucks per day. “We have some grave concerns about this; young people are the most susceptible to health issues associated with air pollution, and we could not think of a worse place to have a childcare centre.” Western suburbs Greens MP Colleen Hartland said she will take the issue up as a matter of urgency with planning minister Richard Wynne. “This is one of the worst truck streets in the state – this site is simply not suitable for use
will be required to ensure it is suitable for its new intended use. Williamstown MP Wade Noonan said VCAT has put binding conditions in place so the future centre will be safe to use, but he is happy to hear from anyone who holds concerns. “This case may be a sign that the council needs to check their local planning scheme is up to date.” Maribyrnong mayor Catherine Cumming said VCAT had made its decision. “The location leaves a bit to be desired.”
as a childcare centre,” she said. “The EPA is completely useless on this stuff, it’s not good enough.” Environment Protection Authority chief executive Nial Finegan said the siting of sensitive uses, such as childcare centres, near major roads is not covered by state environment protection policies. “There is also no planning framework within the council’s planning scheme to prevent or control the building of new childcare centre alongside arterial roads,” he said. Mr Finegan said the site’s current use as a petrol station means an environmental audit

Snakes on the streets A dog-walking group has moved out of Altona because of snakes, with one local vet warning that snake season is just warming up. Karen Hollis, founder of Facebook group Cavalier Meet-Up in Melbourne’s West, said members have decided Altona is too dangerous for their cavalier King Charles spaniels. She said the group’s favourite walk had been from Altona dog beach to Apex Park. “We’ve also tried Cherry Lake, but we can’t go down there this particular time of year because of the snake situation,” Ms Hollis said.
“I’m actually linked up with a Facebook group that reports snake sightings in the west … Snake Sightings in Melbourne’s West found snakes had come into Altona’s streets – Purnell Street and Galvin Street. “I thought, if they’re in Galvin Street and Purnell Street, I think we’ll move out of the Altona area. “There’s [been] a tiger snake at the sports club, and they’ve been at the Altona dog beach as well, so I thought, no, we’ll just move down to Cruickshank Park in Yarraville.” Dr Adam Campbell from Altona Vet Clinic said the large snake population, especially tiger

A Wyndham Vale woman has been charged with murder over the fatal stabbing of a man in Williamstown on Friday. Police and paramedics attended an apartment at the Old Royal Hotel building in Nelson Place about 9.50am, where they found 37-year-old resident Danny O’Brien on a bedroom floor with multiple stab wounds. He was treated by paramedics, but died at the scene. Kerry Jones, 38, handed herself in at the police station across the road a short time later. Police say the pair knew each other. Jones was charged with murder on Friday night and appeared in the Melbourne Magistrates Court for a brief hearing on Saturday morning. She did not apply for bail and was remanded to appear in court at a later date. A resident, who asked not to be named, said there were frequent problems at the address, which she said housed about 18 people. “Residents … have been trying to close this place down for years,” she said. Yarra Community Housing, which is responsible for the property, has been contacted for comment. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or submit a confidential report at crimestoppersvic.com.au

The music will never stop By Goya Dmytryshchak Williamstown will get the blues in a big way this Sunday. The final gig at the Way Out West (WOW) Roots Music Club â€“ before the Williamstown RSL Club closes permanently on January 3 â€“ is expected to be sold out as people come for last drinks. WOW president Rob Rowe, who is also the Williamstown RSL vice-president, said the music venue had quickly developed a reputation after forming 15 years ago. At its inception, Mr Rowe and his friend Terry Smith got 10 people to put in $50 each to book a band. After the first two or three gigs, musicians were phoning them to play. â€œWe had the best musicians in Australia play here. Weâ€™ve also had seven or eight internationals who are Grammy awardwinning Blues Hall of Fame [musicians],â€? Mr Rowe said. â€œWeâ€™ve had people like Joe Louis Walker from the States; he played at George Bushâ€™s inauguration. We had Charlie Musselwhite, whoâ€™s Blues Hall of Fame â€Ś John Hammond, also Blues Hall of Fame.â€? WOW has about six gigs booked for next year as it seeks a new venue. The Williamstown Jazz Club is also searching for a new home. Mr Rowe said one thing was certain: WOW would be resurrected. â€œWeâ€™ll continue because the musicâ€™s the most important thing to us,â€? he said. â€œItâ€™s interesting that one of the really successful RSLs is the Oakleigh RSL, which now call itself the Caravan Club. Theyâ€™re doing music four or five days a week.â€? â€œWe were told once â€“ and I got angry about it â€“ but someone from Anzac House said music isnâ€™t important to RSLs. Well, we beg to differ. Musicâ€™s important to everyone.â€?
Cash to meet enrolment spike Mount St Joseph Girlsâ€™ College in Altona will receive $500,000 state government funding towards its $4 million upgrade, Education Minister James Merlino announced last week. The funding is part of a $120 million plan to upgrade Catholic and independent schools statewide. Mr Merlino said the funding would provide new and refurbished classrooms to meet increasing enrolment demand, with one in three Victorian students attending Catholic and independent schools. â€œWeâ€™re matching the sector dollar-for-dollar, building modern and fit-for-purpose classrooms and facilities to meet increasing enrolment demand.â€? Mount St Josephâ€™s principal Kate Dishon said the money would go towards a two-storey classroom block. â€œWeâ€™re excited to receive the $500,000 â€Ś as part of the capital project weâ€™re embarking on next year, which is development of our two-storey classroom block, so [weâ€™ll have] an innovative classroom and huge refurbishment as part of a $4 million project.â€? The project also includes development of an administration block to create open space and innovative learning spaces. The school has 930 girls enrolled. â€œThey deserve high-quality infrastructure and buildings, and thatâ€™s what this funding will achieve,â€? Altona MP Jill Hennessy said. Goya Dmytryshchak

Cafe soccer scores big Soccer with soul was played with gusto when an annual fundraising match for Williamstown’s Helping Hand Cafe was held on Friday, supporting some of the community’s most in need in the lead-up to Christmas. Now in its 11th year, the cafe is a weekly meals program at Williamstown Church of Christ open to anyone wanting a free two-course meal and a food parcel to take away. Founder Robert Adams, a former street kid, said people came for the company as well as the food. “It’s just about feeding the community, helping people in the flats, anyone on the street that needs a meal, or just wants to come down to chat to people if they’re lonely,” he said. “I’ve just done close to 22,000 meals.”
6 MARIBYRNONG & HOBSONS BAY STAR WEEKLY \ DECEMBER 14, 2016
Mr Adams said that for the past eight years, Williamstown MP Wade Noonan had donated funds to the cafe from the annual soccer match. Mr Noonan said this year’s match pitted a team of “ageing amateurs” against the cream of Bayside College’s deep pool of soccer talent. “This is a chance to live out the Christmas message by helping our neediest neighbours whilst indulging our dreams of sporting prowess and glory on the pitch,” Mr Noonan said. Helping Hand Cafe will hold its annual Christmas party on Tuesday, December 20, from 11am. For a $4 donation, guests will enjoy a roast meal and take home a food parcel. Goya Dmytryshchak

Twice around the globe
Sting smokes Haddara link
By Goya Dmytryshchak The Williamstown maritime community has rallied around a Polish sailor who ran into trouble while circumnavigating the world in honour of his late grandmother. Gregor Wegrzyn, 64, has been invited to use the slipway at the Royal Yacht Club of Victoria (RYCV) until his 10.5-metre boat is ready to set sail for Auckland. His vessel is named Regina R in honour of his grandmother, and a flag bearing her likeness flies atop the mast. He set sail from Poland on June 6, 2015. Crossing the Indian Ocean, his vessel passed through 16 storms. The backstay failed and he had engine problems so he sailed into Fremantle. While there, Mr Wegrzyn was invited to stay in Melbourne where his boat is undergoing more repairs. Speaking through an interpreter and member of the RYCV, the veteran sailor said he planned to circle the globe twice. “I plan to circumnavigate the globe anticlockwise and then once I get back to Poland I plan to do a refit on the boat over a period of perhaps a couple of years. “Then I plan on doing a circumnavigation as close as possible from north to south around the globe. I want to tie a bow around the globe and that’s a present for my grandmother.” He said it was unknown when his quest would end. “A sailor doesn’t say when he’s going to finish because he can’t predict it. When he arrives, that’s when he’s there.” RYCV vice-commodore John Duffin said members had rallied to help, honouring a long-standing mariners’ tradition to help each other in times of need. “The club decided that we’d give him all the assistance we could to make the ongoing trip
A Maidstone businessman has avoided jail despite his role in smuggling 17 tonnes of tobacco into Melbourne. County Court judge Liz Gaynor sentenced Daniel Keefer, 65, to 18 months imprisonment, suspended on a two-year good behaviour bond after he pleaded guilty to one charge of importing tobacco with intent to defraud the Commonwealth. The court heard Keefer was in financial difficulties with his Maidstone business Flooring & Bathroom Bonanza. “As a result of this … you discussed the matter with another person … that person being unbeknownst to you, a member of the Haddara family, a family which, although not all its members can be said to be criminal, is well known to this court,” Judge Gaynor said. Keefer was offered money to use his premises and business to stash a container of goods concealing tobacco. A container said to contain 600 toilets, which arrived in Australia in August 2013, was found to have 17 tonnes of tobacco leaf hidden inside. Customs detected the tobacco, and the delivery continued under police surveillance. The court heard the container was delivered and Keefer made a forklift and employee available for the removal of the tobacco. “You have been extraordinarily foolish, and it has clearly cost you dearly,” Judge Gaynor told Keefer.

around the world as safe possible,” Mr Duffin said. “We’ve provided him with somewhere to work on his boat free of charge and we’re looking to lift the boat out of the water so that he can do some underwater painting and again we will provide all that on a complimentary
basis. A lot of members have taken down supplies to him and we’ve helped to restock his boat.” Follow Gregor Wegrzyn’s journey on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ samotnyrejs/

People power gets going
Call to stop drip-fed support
By Goya Dmytryshchak Altona P-9 College students are working hard to bring some Christmas cheer to young people who have no permanent roof over their heads, and are at risk of finding themselves homeless. The year 7 students have collaborated with Altona-based Latitude, which provides a range of supports to youth aged 15-25. Teacher Joshua Moore said the students had asked local businesses for donations of food and basic essentials to make up Christmas hampers for Latitude’s young clientele.

Women’s Health West is one of 209 organisations to sign an open letter last week, calling on prime minister Malcolm Turnbull to save key homelessness services from funding cuts by extending the federal government’s commitment to the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness (NPAH). “Cuts to the NPAH will withdraw support from some of the most vulnerable people in our community,” the letter stated. “We will see more people living on the streets of our cities and towns, more women facing family violence and sexual assault alone, fewer young people going to school, higher unemployment, more admissions to emergency departments, and the loss of lives that we can save.” The Turnbull government announced on Friday it would deliver $117.2 million in NPAH funding, but fell short of committing to longer-term support. Responding to the one-year funding announcement, Women’s Health West chief executive Robyn Gregory said family violence and related homelessness require a much longer term solution. “One year of funding does not enable us to plan and implement long term strategies for preventing family violence-related homelessness,” she said.
- Rhonda Collins Year 7 students Sarah Brennan and Angelina Rotheram said they were motivated to help Latitude because the young people were of similar ages to them. “These kids aren’t much older than us,” Sarah said. “If we didn’t have what we have now, we could be like that in a few years … we’re so fortunate. “I think that Christmas is when you get presents and I think it just shows that someone cares about them, so it makes them just that little bit more happy.” Angelina said businesses had been very supportive. “Just about every business we’ve contacted has responded … or donated something or attempted to help us with vouchers,” she said. Latitude manager Rhonda Collins described the students’ actions as “magic”. ‘What a wonderful project, young people

supporting young people,” she said. “The students will develop a whole range of skills as they approach local businesses for donations and, most importantly, they are part of the discussion around the issue of youth homelessness. “It’s magic stuff. The hampers will be delivered to our young people, and they will certainly make a difference at what is a difficult time of year for our young people.” Students will be collecting items until
Monday, with collection boxes for community donations placed in the school’s office, and at Elle and Stuart Boutique at 89 Pier Street, Altona. Latitude, which is in Somers Parade, will also welcome donations for its food pantry. Suitable items include tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits, pasta, rice, sauce, soup, canned food, cereal, spreads, long-life milk and juice, and toilet paper. Details: latitudedirections.org.au

Bulldogs still winning The rampaging Western Bulldogs have capped off their drought-breaking AFL premiership win with a record $3.64 million operating profit. The result is the third consecutive year of profit for the club, despite a $1.9 million “impairment charge” against the value of gaming machine entitlements associated with the failed Club Edgewater project. The operating profit rests on the back of a record $48.4 million take in total revenue, smashing last year’s previous record of $41.3 million and helping cut debt from $8.3 million to $1.9 million. The club set a new membership record of 40,081 members in a fairytale year in which it won the AFL and VFL premierships and the women’s Hampson-Hardeman Cup.
Chief executive Gary Kent said the club experienced record growth in game attendance and was the most watched sports team in Australia. The results mark a fitting farewell for club vice president and long serving director Susan Alberti. Maribyrnong mayor Catherine Cumming said a civic reception for the triumphant Bulldogs was a way of thanking the team for all it had done in lifting western suburb spirits. Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge told Star Weekly the sea of red, white and blue that took over the west through the club’s finals campaign had given the players a buzz that helped them on the field.

Masters stroke brings jobs back By Benjamin Millar More than 160 new jobs are expected to be created when the former Braybrook Masters store is redeveloped into a new shopping centre. Plans for the new centre, submitted to Maribyrnong council and estimated to cost $4 million, follow the spectacular crash of the home hardware chain. The first Masters store opened in Australia in 2011. The Braybrook store ceased trading last Sunday, with the loss of 130 full-time equivalent jobs.
The development will enhance the range and - Impact report choice
Plans by Home Consortium Company for a new supermarket, cafe and other retail stores are predicted to create 165 new jobs. An economic impact assessment for the project at 330 Ballarat Road revealed the proposed redevelopment will comprise a 4275 square metre supermarket, understood to
be Woolworths, along with 6842 square metres of retail and a 100 square metre cafe. The redevelopment is expected to take six months with the new centre’s opening scheduled for mid next year. “Braybrook Masters site … presents as a good opportunity for a new supermarket development, particularly in an area where many of the supermarkets are dated and relatively small,” the assessment found. The report also suggested the supermarket and retails stores could draw about $28.5 million in sales per year from surrounding
areas, particularly Sunshine, qualifying this as a “modest” and acceptable impact. “The impacts are broadly distributed, with no single centre or retailer anticipated to be heavily affected,” it stated. “The development will enhance the range and choice available to residents in the area by providing an additional full-line supermarket, as well as large-format retail stores, drawing residents from a broad area.” The assessment found many of the new jobs would be filled by local residents, a boon in an area of high unemployment.
Here’s to you, Mrs Robinson After being a mainstay of the early years of more than 1800 children, Janet Robinson is retiring after 30 years at Russell Court Kindergarten and Children’s Centre in Altona Meadows. Mrs Robinson said she has looked after four to five year olds in the same room all that time. “I will certainly miss the children,” Mrs Robinson said. “They keep you young. They’re just a delight every day to work with. I’ve just enjoyed it more and more as I’ve gone on. “It absolutely gets better and better all the time. I love it.” Now that word is out that she is leaving, Mrs Robinson said the children are “spoiling her rotten” while the staff even held a “Janet Week” that was full of surprises. Mrs Robinson, who has penned two children’s books, said her own children were aged five and six when she started. After three decades, she has cared for the
second generations of a number of families. “We’ve got students here now whose parents were students here too,” Mrs Robinson said. “So, I’ve got students coming back with their own children now. It’s lovely to see them.” Mrs Robinson, who lives in Altona, said she couldn’t go anywhere in the local area without seeing a former student. “It’s funny,” she said. “You wouldn’t think you’d remember the names, but it’s amazing – you see someone and it comes to you.” Goya Dmytryshchak

On her mark, set to go Seaholme teenager Janae Mackrell is crowdfunding to make her dream of representing Australia at athletics in Canada come true. The 14-year-old student at Carranballac College in Point Cook has been invited to compete at the 2017 Track and Field Athletics Tour to Kelowna and Vancouver. Mackrell started in Little Athletics four years ago at Altona and now competes for Werribee Little Athletics and Western Athletics. The long-distance runner says her favourite events are the 1500 and 800 metres. She recently placed third in 1500 metres at the Victorian All Schools State Track and Field Championships, earning a place to compete at the Australian Junior Track and
Field Championships in Sydney next March. “Competing in Sydney and Canada comes at a great cost to my parents, who are busy organising fundraising events and trying to come up with the funds for me to compete and for my dream of representing my country to come true,” she said. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me and it would be an honour to go and represent my country.” Mackrell has started a gofundme campaign seeking donations or sponsorship in a bid to raise $10,000.

Mountain bikes on track By Benjamin Millar The west’s first downhill mountain bike track is in the pipeline as part of a planned $4.5 million revamp of the underused Quarry Park in Footscray. Cycling enthusiasts have welcomed the inclusion of the track and a skills park in a master plan for the 7.2 hectare former tip site. A report on the master plan presented to last night’s Maribyrnong council meeting envisages a “dramatic, sculpted landscape”,
which will offer park users “spectacular views”. “An item which received very strong support through the consultation was the mountain bike track and skills park,” the report noted. “These elements have therefore been developed to have a stronger presence in the park, utilising the steep landform along the northern part of the site, while still keeping the area to the south open for a variety of leisure uses.” John Symons, who led the community campaign for the mountain bike element of the
plan, said he was pleased to see the draft had been updated to take on board the suggestion. “I would like to see a little more length to the track, but it’s heading in the right direction,” he said. At least $2 million of landfill remediation will be required before further works can be completed to reuse the site. The council has allocated $1 million in the 2016-17 budget towards the works, with later elements to be staged as funding becomes available.
From bookworm to college dux A lifelong love of science and mathematics has led to a Braybrook student becoming dux of his school with an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) of 99.5. Caroline Chisholm Catholic College student Carl D’Souza, 17, of West Footscray, studied specialist maths, physics, maths methods, chemistry and English language this year after studying VCE biology in year 11. Carl, who also enjoys playing piano and training in karate, said he felt anxious but mostly excited in the lead-up to finding out his ATAR score on Monday. “I’ve been interested in maths and science since I was a kid. I used to go to the library on weekends and borrow non-fiction books in these subject areas.” Carl was one of 14 of the school’s year 12 VCE students to receive ATAR scores above 90. Benjamin Millar
Get in the swim this summer Newport’s Jason Diederich, a below-knee amputee and Australian Paralympic swimmer, is among those entered for Victoria’s peak open-water swimming event at Williamstown on Saturday. Williamstown Swimming and Life Saving Club and Swimming Victoria are hosting the second state Open Water Championships and the Williamstown Open Water (WOW) Challenge. Diederich said he will attempt to double his distance this year. “One of the other guys I swim with and I have decided to push ourselves and stretch ourselves, and do the 10 kilometre,” he said. “I’ve swum all my life – I’ve done a lot of pool competitions plus swum at the Paralympics a couple of times, but I do love the open water swimming. “There’s many different distances people can do, from the shorter events to the longer events, so it’s a great chance when there are so many people around to look after things and keep everyone safe, to give it a try and go in the open water. “Plus it’s a real festival atmosphere … it’s a great opportunity to start the summer on a good note.” In a Victorian first, this year’s WOW Challenge has a multiclass swimmer category for people with a disability. And more than 15 swimmers will vie for the WOW Challenge Optus Junior Dolphins 750-metre ‘chase the champs’ challenge. Details: wowchallenge.com.au Goya Dmytryshchak

MY PLACE Creating meaningful jobs and helping save the environment are all in a day’s work for Green Collect co-founder and proud Footscray local Sally Quinn. She speaks with Benjamin Millar.
What do you love most about living and working here? What would you change? I love that Footscray has a lived-in feel. Unlike a lot of suburbs, it’s full of people walking, riding, turning up and sharing life. If I could change anything, I would want all people to have access to the many opportunities of the west, from housing to employment to art, and the deep sense of belonging I feel. That’s part of our passion and aim in bringing Green Collect to Footscray. In our workplaces, all people are valued and given the opportunity to be part of working together for a more sustainable planet. Do you have a favourite place to spend time? I love walking down the street and into the heart of Footscray. There’s always some little surprise to come across or person to meet that makes me smile. I’m hoping the mall redevelopment creates a beautiful and welcoming place where people from all ages and walks of life can be together, hang out and enjoy the vibe. What is Green Collect and how did it start? After working with communities who were excluded from work, due to barriers such as homelessness and refugee experiences, I
wanted to create a workplace that prioritised and valued these communities, and the skills and passion that all people have. At the same time, Darren and I kept seeing skips in the city full of good and usable resources, and we put together the idea to create a resource recovery enterprise that prioritised employment and training for people experiencing disadvantage. We were interested in social enterprise and received government, corporate and community support to start Green Collect just over 10 years ago. What are its most rewarding aspects? It feels pretty good when we occasionally step back and see the tonnes and tonnes of resources that have been saved from landfill because of Green Collect’s efforts. We’re proud of the solutions we find for hard to recycle materials like the 55,000 binder folders we collect from offices each year. Our upcycled notebook range is a great example of what can be done with products that have been thrown away. What are some of the most unusual things that have turned up in your collections? We get pots and pans, some still with last night’s dinner … entire contents from corporate offices complete with workplace awards and plaques of recognition. The massive amount of unused and perfect stationery we collect is unbelievable – but reflects the way we over-consume.
What is your connection with Footscray? Within a week of discovering Footscray, my partner, Darren, and I bought a house here – it was love at first sight. That was 20 years and four kids ago, and we still have that same feeling. As soon as we could, we created our work to also revolve around Footscray, and we love that so many parts of our life intersect in this amazing place.

FOOD REVIEW STARWEEKLY.COM.AU
CONSIDER THE SAUCE Kenny Weir finds there’s room for one more cafe … Like Lot 10 Eatery, Dumbo is a relatively new arrival in the WeFo neighbourhood. They join West 48, Pod @ PID, Brother Nancy and Jellybread. This is some fairly intense cafe action. But saturation point? Not yet, it would seem. Dumbo appears to have found its niche rather quickly. The old building next to Footscray West Primary School has been extensively revamped, with much of the limited space taken up by the kitchen and serving area. In the main customer space, there’s a big communal table and a handful of smaller types. The menu has plenty of takes on the usual line-up to keep breakfast fans happy, while the baked Moroccan lamb clay pot ($16) strikes us as something that could also be a handy lunch. The lunch list itself has just three dishes – and CTS tries the lot. Pearl couscous salad with herbs, tomatoes, Lebanese cucumber, chilli herb oil, blackened chicken and green pepper relish ($18) is super. The chicken, moist and juicy, smacks of cumin and more in the seasoning department. Best of all is the fabulous, tangy green pepper relish. No mere garnish this, it is provided in sufficient quantity to really give the dish a hearty flavour bomb. The quinoa zucchini salad with sun-dried tomatoes, dill, goats cheese, shallots, beetroot and smoked trout ($19) is lovely, yet doesn’t quite have the same impact or striking delineation of flavours. It’s undeniably constructed from top-notch
ingredients all round, but is a little bland for my tastes. Or maybe it’s this simple: Memo to self – never order anything that involves quinoa. Eating at cafes such as Dumbo often means CTS has to recalibrate expectations, taking on board that meals such as these salads are not the massive mounds of biryani or pho we habitually consume … and that $18 or $19 is the going rate for such fare. Dumbo’s brioche burger ($19) with chorizo patty, bacon, Swiss cheese, jalapeno cream cheese and caramelised onion, with thin chips and harissa mayo on the side, however, does seem to fall short in value for money terms. The verdict from my companion Tony is that the quality is there, but the quantity is less than generous. Then again, maybe comparing a cafe burger with those from ritzy burger joints is unfair. We have been interested to see what precisely ‘chorizo patty’ meant. Would it be a patty all of re-formed, smoked, porky sausage meat? Or would it be a beef patty with some chorizo meat in it. As far as we can tell, it’s the latter. My cafe latte ($3.80) is outstanding.

Feel great about yourself 19 MARIBYRNONG & HOBSONS BAY STAR WEEKLY \ DECEMBER 14, 2016
A VERY BAILEYS CHRISTMAS Like roast pork and apple sauce, some things just go together. For me, Christmas is synonymous with Baileys, whether it be a tumbler of my favourite liqueur over ice or a piece of Baileys fudge with a coffee on Christmas Eve. Clearly, I’m not the only person who feels this way, given the trouble I had getting my hands on a carton of Baileys ready-made custard for our Christmas Day spread last year. Baileys is also the key ingredient for this smooth, velvety mousse that’s strictly for grown ups, and is a cool, creamy alternative to your Aunty Thel’s steamed pudding on a hot Christmas Day. I have made this mousse several times and it’s very decadent. Of course, you can leave out the Baileys if you’re serving it to kids, but keep in mind it’s the Baileys that takes this dessert to the next level.
ROSS STEVENSON HOST OF 3AW BREAKFAST AND ‘A MOVEABLE FEAST’ FB: How would you rate your cooking skills? RS: Sadly, one out of 10 … and declining. FB: What is your signature dish? RS: Beef stroganoff from the Presbyterian Women’s Missionary Union Cookbook Cookbook, first printed in 1904. FB: If you could only have one more meal, what would it be? RS: The pork belly from Lee Ho Fook, scallop in the same shell from the Flower Drum, seafood spaghettini from Centonove. As always, if you have any recipes, tips or other info you’d like to share, email me at sarah@ howdypartnersmedia.com.au
FB: What is your favourite food TV show and who is your favourite TV food person? RS: Rick Stein. Such a delightful dag. FB: What is your favourite food? RS: Greek natural yoghurt and d’Affinois cheese.
This recipe makes enough for six people. You can serve it in individual glasses, but I tend to whack it all in one bowl and scoop it out to serve. Jazz it up with festive fruits and cream or – heaven forbid – a glug or three of Baileys custard!
BAILEYS CHOCOLATE MOUSSE 3 eggs 75g caster sugar 350ml thickened cream 350g dark chocolate, melted 100ml Baileys Irish Cream
Whisk the eggs and sugar together in a heatproof bowl, then place the bowl over a pan of simmering water. Keep whisking until the mixture thickens a bit. In another bowl, whisk the cream until it forms soft peaks, then stir through the Baileys. Carefully stir the egg mixture through the melted chocolate. Fold through the whipped cream mixture, pour into glasses or a bowl and chill in the fridge until set. This is my last column for 2016. I wish you all a wonderful Christmas, filled with food. Let your hair down, say yes to the crackling (you know you love it) and stay safe over the festive season.
FB: What is your favourite drink? RS: Red wine of any type. FB: Which five people would you most like to invite to dinner? RS: Barack Obama, Winston Churchill, George Clooney, Francesca Cumani and Phar Lap. FB: Do you have a kitchen tip for us? As always, if you have any RS: Get your children to clean up after dinner every recipes, tips or other evening.

Pull up a pew on the glass-framed balcony and gaze out to the bay, or head back indoors through bifold doors to the spacious living domain with gas log fire. A tucked-away, all-white kitchen has mottled stone benches and all the mod-cons, and there’s a powder room servicing this second level. Three ground-level bedrooms (with wardrobes) share a lavish bathroom (with European laundry next door) – and one opens to a courtyard. The top floor has the main bedroom under a vaulted ceiling; mirrored built-in wardrobes, and an extravagant en suite with dual basins and a spa accompany this fab room and there’s access to a private balcony with breathtaking views. Split-system, intercom, security system and basement parking for two cars are other property perks.
Stroll two minutes down the road to get a coffee or take a five-minute bike ride to the train station … that’s how good the locale is for this spanking-new residence on about 355 square metres. It has three spacious, grey-carpeted bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, the main also with a sleek en suite with dual basins. The toilet is separate to the main bathroom, and an open study is tucked away near the front door. The light-filled living domain is anchored by pale oak floors and incorporates a modern grey-and-white kitchen with island bench, abundant storage and quality appliances. The laundry is separate. The backyard has lawn rimmed by garden beds, and there’s a remote-controlled double garage with internal access, plus driveway parking for one.

Just a stroll away from the hustle and bustle of the suburb’s main thoroughfare, Barkly Street, this residence benefits from a central Footscray location while offering bright and modern living. Constructed on two levels and with its commanding street frontage, the house presents an impressive facade. The townhouse is as practical as it is stylish; lots of consideration has gone into maximising the interior’s sunlight. Aiding and abetting that are fresh, crisp, white walls, which complement the charcoal colouring of the window trims and floor

tiles. To the right of entry is one of the three bedrooms. Bedroom one is both big and bright – fitted with a built-in wardrobe it accesses a ground floor powder room. The end of the entry hall marks the beginning of open-plan family living, where the continuation of clean-cut lines defines the contemporary styling. The family-meals zone’s white-on-white colour palette gives the space an uncluttered sense of lightness and, when combined with conveniently placed pendant lightfittings, has a soft-industrial feel.
The two-tone kitchen adds a splash of colour, giving the space a point of difference. Fitted with an island bench and lots of storage, it also has a gas cooktop and underbench oven. The monochrome-colour scheme continues upstairs, with plush charcoal carpet contrasting with the stark white walls. The two remaining bedrooms up here have walk-in wardrobes, with bedroom two’s wardrobe providing direct access to the main bathroom. Back downstairs, two sets of glass sliders
give passage to an aggregate-paved alfresco zone. The simplicity of the interior design makes for an interesting contrast with the leafy greenery outside. The backyard comprises healthy gardens and is kept private by leafy hedging. There’s a 3000-litre tank and a single carport on the block, with additional parking behind the automatic front gates. House features include inverter reverse cycle heating and understair storage. Eleanor Tabone
