The areas shaded maroon above show where the analog TV signals will be switched off on 10 December 2013*. After this date, these areas will receive digital-only signals. If you haven’t already done so, you need to get ready for digital-only TV.

How do I tell if I have digital TV? If you can see ABC2, SBS TWO, GO!, 7TWO or Eleven, you are digital ready and don’t need to do anything.

If I can’t see those channels, what do I have to do? Remember, to keep watching free-to-air TV shows, you’ll need either: • one set-top box or a digital TV recorder for each analog TV you use; or • a new TV with a built-in digital tuner. Most importantly, you do not have to buy a new TV if you do not want to. Most antennas and cabling should work after the digital switchover. However, if you have any concerns about your reception, you may consider asking an endorsed Antenna Installer to check your antenna and cabling. If you have any other questions, or to find your nearest endorsed Antenna Installer, visit our website or call the Digital Ready Information Line.

Get ready for digital TV today. *Please note: switch off may occur earlier in some towns. Residents in these towns will be informed about the switchover dates. See the website for more information.

on’t get me wrong; I was impressed by the food at Bistro K – pleasing flavours, an original Korean-nuanced approach to fusion cuisine and gorgeous presentation. But before it arrived I was already charmed by the enthusiasm of the staff. “You’ve chosen all my favourite dishes,” said one young waitress. “Whenever I eat here those are the dishes I choose.” You’d think a reviewer would be immune to employee approval of menu choices. I would have thought so too. But her fervour seemed genuine rather than solicitous and it was catching. Besides, she and her colleagues doted on my young dining companion, who is studying Korea at school and thought he would be able to provide additional insight. The young waitress’ favourites were golden fried, batter-coated fillets of salmon and butterfish that arrived on a pale, textured pottery dish, drizzled with a sticky, sweet chilli sauce and sprinkled with crushed nuts. Not complicated cuisine and not especially Korean, but moreish nonetheless. Our young co-reviewer preferred the milder flavour of the butterfish, which was creamy and delicate. Another of the approved choices was crispy mungbean pancakes, fanned across a pretty white platter and served with a dipping sauce of soy, mirin and vinegar. No wonder. The delicate legume purée gives the patties a refined, airy texture that contrasts with small, tender diced pieces of pork (there’s also a vegetable version), and the salty, sweet and sour elements of the sauce are a pleasant flavour enhancer. The young man and I would like the recipe, please (apparently it was the chef’s mother’s). My dish of the night was a sous vide pork belly with a soybean citron sauce, served with apple and kimchi chips. This is available as a small or larger dish but, as with all of the value-for-money mains at Bistro K, ours was accompanied by bowls of steamed black rice and miso soup. The generous main serve contains two thick pieces of perfectly cooked pork belly, its fat rendered to mouth-coating velvet and its flesh meltingly tender. The syrupy citron sauce (most dishes contain a sweet element) is acidic enough to cut through the pork’s richness, helped by a side of shredded kimchi and spring onion salad. Dehydrated slices of apple and kimchi add a decorative element, but their crunch dissipates quickly and they aren’t substantial enough to add lasting impact. Chef Jae Park and his business partner, Sharon Jeon, opened Bistro K at the quiet end of Smith Street about four months ago. Korean-born and trained, Park has worked at Seoul’s French-inspired Hotel Shilla as well as Italian and French restaurants in the US, and he spent 18 months at Melbourne’s Nobu. Jeon has worked for Korea’s Hyatt hotels and ran a Melbourne business supplying Korean foods. Park’s menu is a product of his background and not determinedly Korean. It features bibimbap, the national dish of mixed rice, meat and vegetables; bulgogi, richly marinated grilled beef; and kimchi, spicy, fermented cabbage, but there are many elements that are Japanese influenced too. A short list of traditional Korean alcoholic drinks, from soju (distilled rice spirit) to bok bun ja (sweet berry wine), appear on the placemat-style menu. Our waitress

recommended mae chui soon (green plum wine), which was aromatic, with a sweet body and a slightly tart finish. There are also cocktail jugs for sharing, ciders, a few Korean beers and a selection of Korean teas. My young companion struggled through a proportionately large bowl of chicken legs and wings, listed on the menu as slow-cooked spicy chicken stew with chunky vegetables. Our kind waitress made sure the sweet chilli and soy sauce wasn’t too hot for him and he enjoyed its rich, sweet flavours and the tender poultry pieces. It wasn’t especially traditional, either. Also non-traditional were some rather fun deep-fried seafood balls, comprised of pieces of fish, octopus, prawns, tofu, zucchini and carrot. The riot of textures is softened by a creamy cauliflower purée and enhanced by another sweet chilli sauce. The bibimbap with bulgogi beef (also available with salmon or butterfish) was a fruit-bowl-sized pottery dish filled with spinach leaves, grilled eggplant, pieces of meat, a scattering of enoki mushrooms and a sous vide poached egg. An accompanying platter held a collection of pickled vegetables and a bowl of dark chilli sauce, plus the was the rice and miso soup. Toss the lot in and mix it up. That’s probably a metaphor for this intriguing new bistro. It seems to work. \ ltolra@theweeklyreview.com.au

Exposed-brick walls and a collection of irregular-shaped light-fittings suspended in the front window add warmth to the interior at this minimalist bistro. Elegant curved pale timber chairs and stools at solid-topped matching tables create uniformity, while a series of red-enamelled lightshades break the neutral tones. Placemat menus and ordered shelving behind a solid-timber bar keep things streamlined, but inflexible surfaces, including polished concrete floors, can make things rowdy. A rear room with a wallpaper mural and faux fireplace is an escape from the din. \

peak to any winemaker and they will all tell you the same thing: “Good wine is made in the vineyard”. While wine is made only once a year, work in the vineyard runs all year. In fact, vines and their grapes go through a regular cycle that changes with the seasons. The beginning of the vine’s circle of life starts in autumn, when the vine goes into dormancy by dropping its leaves and sending nutrients into the roots. “We consider that to be the start of the next season,” Yabby Lake’s vineyard manager Keith Harris says. “The next step is to prune the vines to a number of buds.” Harris says the number of buds left on the vines helps to estimate the size of the following year’s crop. “You’re actually doing your early crop forecasting when you prune,” he says. “It takes us three months to prune. Most people would spread their pruning over three months – there’s no benefit in getting it all done in three weeks and doing nothing for the next two months. “In August we start seeing a bit of bud swell and little fluffy buds come out. We normally look out for budburst – which is when 50 per cent of those buds have green tips showing on the end – at the end of August.” The vines then go through growth stages, with the bud sprouting two leaves, then four and so on, plus an inflorescence, which will become the bunch of grapes. “Then we get into the flowering period around the last week of November. There are little caps on the end of each flower and we look for the caps to fall off and the flowers to be exposed,” says Harris, who planted Yabby Lake’s vineyards at Tuerong on the Mornington Peninsula in 1998. “The fruit sets after flowering. We go through bunch counts and see if we’re going to get the crop we thought we were going to have.” When vines are flowering, not only are the grapes for that vintage being made but the buds for the next vintage are being generated, too. “They’re complex things, vines. If it gets particularly cold, flowering will be less effective and the bud set for the following vintage will be affected and will reduce

to soften and the red grapes go from green to pink and then dark red. “We’re looking to be halfway through veraison in the middle of January. When we get to that stage we know we’ll be harvesting two months from that date. “We measure some other parameters – the sugar, pH and total acid levels – and when they get to the target we want, we start harvesting.” After harvest, the cycle of the vines continues. \ bthomas@theweeklyreview.com.au Online Only

your crops. We want a window of two warm weeks in November to help this. “We thin the bunches out if it looks like we’re going to have too much because a nice balanced crop is what we’re after for high quality. “In pinot noir, it runs at five tonnes to the hectare – that’s about two kilograms per vine with our vine spacing. If you produce more than that crop, you tend to get thinner, less intense-flavoured grapes.” From the set period the grapes grow, their cells expanding and dividing until they get to full size. “They stay hard and green for quite a while.

t’s not often that you find a photographic essay on Beirut and a collection of still-life digital collages under one roof, but this combination shows why Edmund Pearce Gallery is Melbourne’s premier art space for photography and photo media. Award-winning photographers Paul Blackmore and Michael Corridore will exhibit side by side at the gallery until October 5. Corridore’s Tangents is a collection of contemporary, digitally layered collages of still-life objects inspired by the Cubist approach of reinterpreting things from different perspectives. Blackmore’s New Beirut is a series of photos revealing the Lebanese capital’s rise from the ashes of war. Recent violence in Syria has spilt across to the south of Beirut, shattering the peace, but Blackmore’s photos are a reminder of what was and what could be again. \ JO DAVY jdavy@theweeklyreview.com.au

NEW YORK/NEW YORK AT TRINK TANK The teeny-tiny bar called Bar Americano, hidden down dog-leg Presgrave Place, somehow fits a pint-sized gallery into its space. The gallery, called Trink Tank, is hosting artist Simon MacEwan’s latest work, New York/New York. To create the translucent-looking metropolis he used tracing paper, mirrors and lights, which perfectly illuminate the contradictory emptiness of the city that never sleeps. The work’s subject is the city’s reflection, playing up the idea of the city as a constant mirage rather than a tangible experience.

The highly subjective artworks created in their psychiatric hospitals by people suffering from mental illness or experiencing psychological trauma have been curated and hung in the RMIT Gallery. A selection of works have been chosen from about 15,000 created between the 1940s and 1970s. They were kept by Dr Eric Cunningham Dax until the hospital closed in the 1980s.

arbon fibre is strong stuff and very lightweight, a natural for building cars. But, being extremely expensive, it turns up only in money-is-no-object the sports cars such as Ferraris and McLarens. manual It’s pretty obvious, then, that you won’t find carbon fibre in Kias. So why the fake carbon fibre inserts in the Cerato’s dash? Is there anyone on the face of the planet who’d think it was real carbon fibre? I raise this question only because it’s the one thing I objected to in this car. Otherwise it’s great. It drives nicely, feels solid, the interior space isn’t bad, the boot’s generous, the power is first rate, and the economy’s good. Small-car buyers are spoilt for choice right now. The Mazda 3, Nissan’s reborn Pulsar, Holden’s Cruze, the Golf and the Corolla are all outstanding products at good prices, and now this new Cerato is offering yet one more highly solid proposition.

But the best thing about the car is its solid feel. The structural integrity is not quite on a par with the Golf but it’s better than most. For a sharply priced car out of Korea, build quality such as this is surprising and most welcome. If you can get over the Cerato wearing a Kia badge, you’ll discover a genuinely good package. Don’t buy any competitive product until you’ve driven it. \ reasdown@theweeklyreview.com.au
