get from it. You can be a lot freer with your enthusiasm,” says Walker. In 2009, the five entered their first cake competition at the Royal Melbourne Show. Representing a scene familiar to most share households, the ladies created a pile of pizza boxes stuffed with pizza crusts, discarded pineapple, a television remote, an ashtray full of cigarettes, and a couple of bottletops. Predictably, the cake was not received well by the judges, who awarded the first prize that year to a re-creation of Sir Donald Bradman’s cricket cap. In 2010, they caused even more of a stir when they submitted their Miss Havisham Cake. Inspired by the deranged character in Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations, the wedding cake looked like it had been eaten away by vermin. There were mice, maggots, mould, cockroaches and spiders. The plastic groom was missing his head and one of the classical columns had collapsed. They were disqualified for “being in poor taste”. “We’re always impressed by how amazingly well-made the cakes are, and the actual level of skill that has gone into them,” says

Chilton of the show cake entries. “But sometimes we feel that it’s been wasted on the concept.” To coincide with the launch of their installation at Melbourne Now, the ladies have also produced their first children’s book – Hotham Street Ladies: A Book for Kids. Aimed at children aged five years and older, the book will provide a lively narrative about Melbourne and the collective. There will be lots of activities designed especially for kids, which involve them using paper stencils, icing sugar, piped icing and hundreds and thousands. And like most of their work, it will ignite the imagination, and possibly whet the appetite. “The book is about applying creativity to everyday situations,” says Walker. “There is one chapter which is all about dinner parties, and it teaches kids how to decorate a table, and how to make something creative for family dinner, because creativity doesn’t have to be a special event. It can be something that is integrated into everyday life.” \ fcarter@theweeklyreview.com.au We Welcome your feedback @

my vieW \ KATRINA HALL ASKS: HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH?

I

t’s the morning after Halloween, and my six-year-old has just gone off to school after eating lollies for breakfast. When I offered her normal food she said she wasn’t hungry, and then I noticed a ring of chocolate around her lips and a trail of Fantail wrappers leading from her bedroom to the kitchen. Too much of the hard stuff, babe? I asked. She smiled, yawned, and went to throw a ball at the dog. Right now she’s probably dozing on the carpet in the middle of her classroom. i think I’m not entirely convinced she wasn’t feeding half of we’ve all her booty to the dog, because he’s farting up a storm. had enough Has anyone actually heard a dog let off? It’s bizarre, a sound not at all like the kind of air-expulsion noises of her kind you hear from humans, it’s much more tuneful, like their behind is singing for Eurovision. Plus, he looks embarrassed about it, which is understandable given his bum sounds like a tweety-bird. How much is too much for a dog? When its bottom starts to sing, I’d say. And all this while I’m checking Facebook, and again thinking about that question. Indeed, how much is too much on social media? Some like to share three or four times a day and really stupid stuff, the most annoying being affirmations in Helvetica about the meaning of life and what a good friend they are unless you cross them, and press “like” if you like them, which of course you have to do because you don’t want to cross them. If you’re over 40 and still use Facebook to remind yourself how popular you are, or to get attention, I think you need to get off. I can excuse occasional bursts of narcissistic posting, but only if your kids have a birthday or you’re on an awesome holiday, but I draw the line at photos of the cake you’ve made (istock \ thinkstock)

for the office and announcing when you’re coming down with a cold. In a perfect world, a Facebook newsfeed should be limited to valuable insights on geopolitical issues and top 10 compilations, preferably weird family pictures and goats that sound like humans. Leave the everyday minutiae and photo collages of drunken nights out to the high-school kids. Like Ja’mie, who I actually really do think is too much. I get that that’s the whole point, and Chris Lilley is a genius, of course, but his muse is creeping me out. She’s so deluded and vain I’m worried real kids will start to copy her, or worse, she is actually a parody of real kids. What will become of all of us if either is true? Mine may be able to get away with eating lollies for breakfast, but they’re not allowed to watch this show. Ja’mie bites her dad to get what she wants, for heaven’s sake. I think we’ve all had enough of her kind, including Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga and the Kardashians, who really are just silly television constructs posing as people. My friend was just telling me how shocked she was to see all these 12-year-olds walking the streets like sexy little vamps for Halloween, and it’s not hard to work out who their role models are. Call me old fashioned, but is it impossible for female artists to make a video clip in anything other than their undies any more? Even Beyonce did it in a Brunswick backstreet no less, and she’s a mother, and it’s Melbourne. It’s cold. Sometimes too little is actually too much. Or did you just forget your slacks, Bey? \ khall@theweeklyreview.com.au We Welcome your feedback @

Decanter \ BEN THOMAS

AND THE SECRET VALLEY OF SHIRAZ

(Supplied)

here’s a star on the rise in the Yarra Valley. It’s not chardonnay or pinot noir – they’ve already made it – but a grape better associated with the Grampians and Barossa Valley. It’s shiraz. Shiraz, or syrah as the more elegant renditions are often labelled, generally sits behind chardonnay, pinot noir and cabernet sauvignon in the pecking order of grapes in the Yarra Valley. But in the region’s cool climate, shiraz is a chameleon of a grape that’s capable of producing a range of styles. “We’ve been making shiraz for a few years now and, like a number of wineries [in the Yarra Valley], it sits behind chardonnay and pinot noir. But it’s a pretty important part of what the Yarra’s all about,� says winemaker Andrew Fleming, right, who’s better known for the pinot noir and chardonnay he makes at Coldstream Hills than for his shiraz. “There is a huge range of styles within the Yarra – some that polarise, while others are more conventional – and the beauty is that there’s no restraint as long as we make something that appeals to the consumer. “You’ve got the richer styles plus the spicier, cool-climate styles that we can offer in this part of the world, and from what we’re seeing there is a definite interest in cool-climate shiraz at the moment.� Two things influence the style of Yarra shiraz: site and winemaker intervention. “One of the beauties of the Yarra Valley is that, provided you get the right site, you can really grow a range of varieties. [We produce] wines of distinction and length without being ball busters – that’s true for all reds,� says Fleming. “With shiraz it’s all about depth of fruit and mid-palate sweetness. It’s a variety that I think, if it’s grown correctly, the wine just seems to make itself. It’s all about the nurturing process.� Shiraz grows best in the Yarra Valley’s warmer sites – the north-facing slopes and the valley floor between Coldstream and Dixon’s Creek in the north. In cool climates such as the Yarra, winemakers have an arsenal of techniques in the vineyard and in the

winery that influence the style of shiraz they produce. There’s plenty of evidence they’re being put to good use with the diversity of Yarra Valley shiraz. By picking the grapes early, the wine will be at the spicier end of the spectrum, while extra ripening time on the vines helps to produce a richer, fuller wine. Once the grapes have been harvested, shiraz can be co-fermented with viognier for added depth. It’s a technique that’s been used for centuries in the cooler areas in the Rhone Valley. In the Yarra Valley, Yering Station has been producing

one of Australia’s best shiraz-viogniers for years. Another option for winemakers is to use whole bunches of grapes rather than just the berries during fermentation. It’s a technique that’s used also with pinot noir and gamay, and it adds floral perfume and spice to shiraz. A little goes a long way, however, and wines that have a high proportion of whole-bunch fermentation can be polarising – I love the perfume and the spicy, stalky characters this technique can bring out in a wine. But it’s not for everyone. \ bthomas@theweeklyreview.com.au

Melbourne and surrounding areas switch on 10 December 2013* The analog TV switch off is happening on 10 December 2013* – and there’s no turning back. After this date you won’t see anything if you’re not ready for digital-only TV.

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.

Don’t put it off any longer. 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.

Brisbane-based photographer Trevor Templeman is the latest artist to focus his lens on our city. As Sofitel Melbourne’s current artist-in-residence, Templeman has produced an exhibition full of colour-popping images in a bid to capture the city’s “mix of edgy vitality, refined gentility of Europe and larrikin exuberance of Australia’’. \ LEXI COTTEE editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au

alley Princess

This is one of the most beautiful pieces of graffiti art I’ve seen. Alley Princess was shot in high-dynamic-range imaging, which saturates colours and sharpens lines so the photo is a “reinterpretation’’ of the original work. As is the case with many graffiti art pieces, it is virtually impossible to find the artist responsible. Truly talented.

milk crate

Proof that timing is everything. With Milk Crate, I took a number of shots but only this one was free of distortions. This was shot at 10am with shadows created from the Eureka Tower and Flinders Street Station, lit by the sun’s reflection.

Walk on By

As a photographer, I have thousands of images. However, it’s often difficult to find a theme or adequate title for a body of work. With Walk On By it happened by chance that four images worked together perfectly to create the title for the exhibition.

Whitemoss

This was captured during Melbourne’s rush hour. The bike outside a florist shop in Flinders Lane caught my attention, so I quickly shot some frames with the passing crowds. Like so much in city life, things are constantly moving and this shop is no more. NOVEMBER 14, 2013 \ The weekly review 13

Built in the 1940s, this beautiful house with its gracefully curved façade has changed hands only once before. It’s a bright and airy offering with polished floorboards and high ceilings marked with art deco-style ceiling ornamentation. There are two generous bedrooms downstairs, one with a built-in wardrobe, and a formal lounge with its broad window highlighted by panes of etched glass. An almost circular meals area at the heart of this floor overlooks a lemon-coloured kitchen with Bosch oven. A vast family room with windows on three sides sits a short step down, laid out in front of an open fireplace. There’s an immaculate bathroom with shower and tub downstairs, and a separate laundry. Upstairs are two bedrooms on a split-level arrangement, one with a balcony enjoying views of Merri Creek. The large idyllic backyard with abundant trees, paved entertainment area, pond and rockery backs onto the creek, and it’s a short stroll to Merri Creek Primary School via this scenic route. \ STEPHEN A. RUSSELL

Harking back to 1886, this stunning tuck-pointed red-brick Victorian terrace house has all the charm of its original presentation and a handsome extension. The verandah has beautiful lacework and tessellated tiles, with a leadlight detail front door leading to a broad hall with polished grey ironbark floors and central arch. A large formal lounge or study has a wooden-manteled fireplace framed by twin arches, each furnished with bookshelves. A raised, open-plan living area to the rear has a high ceiling, french doors punctuating a wall of glass, and a sleek, white kitchen with pale stone worktops and European appliances. There’s also a handy powder room. Upstairs, two large bedrooms have walls of built-in wardrobes. A beautiful spa bathroom with a vast skylight separates them. There’s a courtyard with rear right of way access for off-street parking, Gertrude and Smith streets are nearby and Two Birds Café is next door. \ STEPHEN A. RUSSELL

… “Every time I come in, I am made to feel special and gorgeous. And every time I walk out of Semaarn’s I feel like a million dollars.
