Review\ MOUTHiNG OFF “wATCH THe lANGUAGe UseD AbOUT HeR (GillARD) veRy CAReFUlly ... iT will be AN eDUCATiON iN iTselF AbOUT jUsT HOw GROwN Up we ARe As A NATiON.”

COMeTH THe TiMe, COMeTH THe ReDHeAD

The visit was as unexpected as it was unofficial. On a cold, grey Sunday afternoon back in 2008, Julia Gillard and her partner, Tim Mathieson, swept into the austere, cathedral-like rooms of the TarraWarra Museum of Art in the Yarra Valley for the opening of the Gabrielle Pizzi collection of indigenous art. She was for the first time, as she was later often required to be, acting Prime Minister while Kevin Rudd was overseas, and this was not an official duty. Gillard was not launching the exhibition, nor did she have any particular function on that day, but the eager little knots of fans that clustered around her gave her presence the air of a royal visit. Why was she there? What an unusual choice to make for what little spare time the acting Prime Minister might have. Turns out, Gillard has made the trip to the

Besen family’s centre for modern art more than once – it’s one of the things she likes to do during her time off. For the opening speeches, she was seated in a special place and was acknowledged by all. I recall thinking that this was a most canny and strategic choice to make during such a high-profile period: the only time Australia had been led by a woman. At that time I couldn’t remember a single public visit that Rudd had ever made to a gallery, but Gillard was making a very clever point about her difference – about what mattered to her, about her home state and where she felt at home. Many on that day, a little star-struck, thought the place she clearly best belonged was in the Lodge. The events of the past week have revealed that Gillard is one of the smartest politicians running around our nation’s capital. Dragged reluctantly to a leadership battle, she then co-executed it with the precision of a French guillotining and the stealth of a Mafia garrotting: Rudd didn’t see it coming. That she is Victorian, and of the Left, made it more surprising. That she is a woman is the greatest shock of all. Does it matter that a woman has finally claimed the highest political office of the land? It seems like it does to many and, interestingly, they are much, much younger women. How many little girls do you know who asked, wide-eyed last Thursday morning, about a “lady” being a prime minister? Some of the most hardened

post-feminists I know, who stopped keeping gender count a long time ago, were taken aback at how much it meant to their daughters, nieces and sisters. One I know wanted to take the day off school in celebration, but what teenager wouldn’t try that? The question that now hangs in the air for those keenly watching the writing of an unprecedented chapter in our political history is just how we will conduct ourselves now. Will we – the media, the public, the strategists and, yes, the politicians – be able to restrain ourselves from rushing to the judgments and indulging in the double standards to which women in public life are so often subjected? She is in a de facto relationship and not in a “traditional” family unit; she is not blonde, and she takes no prisoners with her politics. Watch the language used about her very carefully … it will be an education in itself about just how grown up we are as a nation. I remember during the Howard era being impressed at the number of smart, senior conservative women in the then-government’s ranks, and I wonder whether some of them wish they had been able to beat the Labor Party to this historic punch. I look forward to them fighting back. \

Review\ coveR sToRy

NO SMALL His wife thought he was “probably gay”, this year he was nominated in the World Food Media Awards for the “Best Restaurant Critic in the World” and Ralph declared him “Wanker of the Year” 2010. Would the real Matt Preston please sit down? Understanding Mister Overexposed is easier in person, writes AndReW McUtCHen.

T

he call of nature comes a great deal more often than a call from Matt Preston. It's a shame then that on this day the two coincided. I had expected him to be late and I’d granted myself a quick dash with a few minutes to spare. But at a critical moment, the phone rings. “Are you ready to go?” Preston’s Channel Ten PR guy asks. I am, in more ways than he realises. But I turn on my heel and flee back to my studio. “You have 20 minutes,” he says, with the tone of a mother leaving her son in a games arcade. So, all physical and time pressures considered, the interview begins tensely. Preston is in a car being driven to the MasterChef sound stage. I try small talk while I get settled – an on-time celebrity, WTF! – and locate my dictaphone. “This feels like the pressure test!” I stall feebly, rooting through drawers, referring to one of MasterChef 's crueller inventions. The big man belittles the small talk, not out of spite but necessity. “My interviews are short so let's cut to the chase and get to the questions. I do hate these constrained interviews, being a journalist myself, but they bang someone else right up against you at the back end, so let’s get started, I'm sure you have plenty to get through.” Of course I do. There are two A4 pages laid out in front of me with more than 40 questions scrawled down. From A to W (anker), I have enough for several hours of probing conversation. Preston is not only this hour’s mega celebrity – perhaps the hardest person in the country, the Prime Minister included, to get on the phone – he's also a writer whose turn of phrase can be delicious. There are queries of craft. But also of cravats. Is he, quite frankly, tired of talking about them? “I’m happy to,” Preston says quickly. “Because I always acknowledge that I got the job at MasterChef not based on my writing or my abilities as a critic but on the strength of a picture of me wearing a cravat. The producers said ‘this is the perfect guy for our show’. So the cravat’s got me the job, so I’m always respectful of that. I’ve worn scarves since I was 18, as a matter of fact. The only difference is they used to hide the love bites, now they hide the third chin. Quite seriously, I’m lucky I had a signifier. I’m lucky to be ‘that guy in a cravat’.” Preston, born in 1961, is unlikely to have hidden any love bites since he moved to Australia from London

in 1993, though given his ardour for his wife of 10 years, Emma, whom he refers to in his restaurant reviews as “the woman I love”, you never know. Preston describes his first impressions of her as an “incredible, beautiful woman”. Hers were less lustful. Emma told Women’s Weekly that, given Preston’s penchant for shoes, his willingness to listen to her dating disasters and him being “more feminine than most blokes”, she deduced that he was “probably gay”. Her misconceptions were quickly corrected when they began dating. “Matt loves women,” she said. They remain unconfused despite Preston’s eagerness to “pick flowers for the spare bedroom when guests come to stay”. The couple have a nine-year-old son.

“PeRhaPs The sTRongesT common ThRead beTween geoRge, gaRy and i is ThaT we’Re all food TRagics.”

With talk of his wife, Preston points out that his involvement in MasterChef hinged on her support. “I couldn’t have and in fact I wouldn’t have done it without her telling me it would be a good thing. She very much egged me on to do the show. I had a lovely life before doing the show, writing and reviewing and travelling around the world talking about restaurants and food,” Preston says. “The person who makes the sacrifice in this situation is always your partner. They end up carrying the majority of the parenting responsibilities. The relationship changes that have happened since I started the show are ones that I am eternally grateful for at all times. Any chance I get to say thank you for the sacrifices that she’s making, I have to take.” But if we are to linger a little longer on the Preston who arrived on Australian shores in the early ’90s, we see a different picture indeed to today’s debonair, bovine-booted behemoth. The portrait of the artist

as a young man is more of a Ken Done print than an Archibald winner. After earning an honours degree in politics and government from Kent University, Preston emigrated to Australia and worked for several years as a soapies correspondent for British mags such as What’s On TV and Women’s Own. A glittering high point of this period was the night he won his “most prized possession”, a pink T-shirt signed by Neighbours character Annalise, played by Kimberley Davies. How did he win it? “By knowing more about Neighbours than anyone else in the world.” Preston’s writing developed from one great passion to another: food. His articles and columns in delicious and Epicure (The Age) earned him a gong for “Food Journalist of the Year” in 2008 at Le Cordon Bleu World Food Media Awards. At the same awards this year, he was nominated for “Best Restaurant Critic”. Despite a schedule that is packed tighter than a duck-neck sausage, Preston always finds time to write and allocates “writing days” wherever possible. “I love writing,” Preston says, rolling the word in his mouth as if it were a freshly shucked oyster. “I refer to it as my day job. There’s a joy about writing. I get excited about writing. I get excited when I sit down at my laptop and I’ve got a whole day to write. Spending so much time on MasterChef has reignited that side of my life. Once you’re deprived of something you cherish, when you get it back it seems doubly precious.”

P

reston’s voice on the telephone has two distinct personalities. One is the critic – whose role in society, he says, is to “be a conduit and connect people with good experiences”. This voice wears a crisp suit, is efficient, no-nonsense and tells of his public-school upbringing in London. The other, and apologies in advance for the mental image, wears a negligee and has a feather fascinator lodged somewhere. This is the voice into which Preston slips when he talks about food, or in this case, writing. Later I ask what was the last thing he cooked? The recipe that followed began with plums – more than likely one of


TALK Preston’s beloved jams, for which he has won awards. He is, according to a close friend, “an excellent cook” – and the rest was lost from my memory in a swoon. All I remember are adjectives swimming in a rich sauce of Preston’s accent and appetite, which, even at 3pm, is palpable. Preston is a self-confessed “food tragic”. So are the other two judges on MasterChef, which is why Preston thinks the combination works so well. “Perhaps the strongest common thread between George (Calombaris), Gary (Mehigan) and I is that we’re all food tragics,” Preston says proudly. “Gary and George love to eat as well as love to cook. I love to eat and I enjoy cooking as well. One of the great things that bonded us in the first series up here in Sydney was that we were three little hermits filming 12 hours a day. Then at the end of the day we’d go ‘well, let’s go out to dinner’, and we found quickly that we can all talk over-excitedly about the quality of a chip or the balance of flavours in a sauce in a way that would have our partners just roll their eyes and say ‘you are ridiculous’.”

T

he dynamic of the judges has certainly settled over the two series of the mega-rating MasterChef. The three amigos are more relaxed, more physical and more comfortable with each other. “George’s mum, Mary, put it best when she said watching the three of us larking around together at the re-launch of George’s restaurant that it was like watching family. It does become like family,” Preston says. There was a telling moment in this very episode, which pitted two teams of contestants against each other in the quest to re-launch Colombaris’ iconic restaurant, The Press Club. At one point, a young MasterChef challenger, whose acne positively glows when he’s under pressure, served raw chicken to a customer. Colombaris went through the roof and all television polish was gone. Mehigan heard the shouting from the floor and appeared quickly and put his hands on the shoulders of his sweating, fretting co-host. “How are you feeling, mate?” he said, with a small but satisfying-to-watch trace of enjoyment in his face. What chef doesn’t enjoy another’s meltdown? Colombaris turned to see who it was and all but collapsed into Mehigan’s arms, the panic in his face replaced with a schoolboyish grimace that said at least a hundred words. This ain’t television, it said, this is my restaurant. Whose idea was this? Preston remembers the incident but is quick to

“I’ve always enjoyed Matt” MAGGIE BEER ON MATT “I’ve always liked Matt and I’ve always enjoyed Matt. But then you know I saw him on Jennifer Byrne's First Tuesday Book Club on the ABC and he is so erudite. He is so smart.” You can hear something of a delicious shiver in Beer’s voice. “I love that sort of classical background of his. Just hearing him that night, I thought ‘wow, that’s where it all comes from. You are a smart, scholarly boy.’ His great education came shining through.” Mr Thick and Thirsty’s appeal extends far beyond his absorbing turn of phrase, and while his status as a “thinking woman’s sex symbol” may have been the final straw in the race for Ralph’s 2010 “Wanker of the Year”, it adds more fuel to Beer’s furnace of warm appreciation. “Oh yes, I can see that, absolutely. Because it’s the mind thing, it’s his wit thing. That’s what women go for. Thinking women require wit, humour and intelligence.”

COVER STORY\ MATT PRESTON point out that they had known each other before the television odyssey began and that a friendship, a brotherliness, has developed over that time. “I’ve known Gary and George for eight years. I’ve reviewed all their restaurants, I’ve done events with them at the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival (of which Preston was the creative director for six years), so we’ve known each other professionally. I think that’s made it easier because you can’t get away with the bullshit you can get away with strangers, if you know what I mean? Initially, as a critic between two chefs, there was a sense that we were coming from two different places.”

P

reston posits that the producers believed they had television gold when they cast the emotional wunderkind chef (George), the hotel-trained mentor (Gary) and the cravat-couched critic, Matt, and dropped them in the pressure cooker that is reality TV. But the plan backfired. The three found instant accord and discovered that, “surprisingly, there is often objectivity about what is good food and what is not”. “What I’ve actually found really interesting is how rare it is that we disagree on a dish. George doesn’t like chili, Gary and I do. Gary likes his mashed potato more buttery than me. But we see food in very similar ways.” The intensity of the MasterChef experience from within the kitchen is something that is hard to properly measure or to get any sense of until you talk to someone who has been through it. It is indeed too hot for many, and these people get out of it. Maggie Beer, who, incidentally, cooked for Preston “the best roast chicken I’ve ever had in my life”, described her one-episode stint as a celebrity chef as “utterly terrifying”. Asked whether she would do it again, she quickly replied “no bloody way! The clock was one thing but the pressure I put on myself was far worse.” Preston, however, says that the judges probably fare best when it comes to the pressure. “When the cameras are off, we do talk about the show, like who’s our dream list of chefs we’d like to have on it and also about the prospects of contestants, because the top seven will get a start in the industry, but not in the same way as the contestants do. They’re locked up in the house with no other external influences. They become consumed by the show, we just get sillier and sillier the longer a shoot goes. “And the three of us, we’ve got restaurants and books going on, we’ll often be discussing those kinds of things, too. If I’m doing a recipe I might ask Gary and George about other ways I might use plums. It’s also really nice to have a brains trust you can call on. We muddled our way through the first series, we didn’t know what we were doing. So our performances are a bit more relaxed now.” What is the greatest challenge of being a MasterChef judge? Preston does not hesitate. He weeds out the least attractive, and perhaps highest-rating trait, of reality television and states the judges’ philosophical opposition to it. “We are always making sure that the show is about the food and not about interpersonal rivalries or squabbles. We’ve seen a bit more of that in series two. The other main differences are that in the first series no one knew what was coming, it was totally new for all of us, so we’ve had to conceive new ways to keep people on their toes. Also, we’re getting better cooks in this series, which usually happens with the second series of any reality show.” While the talk so far has been of the gang of three, Preston’s stocks personally are well and truly on the rise. There is no I in team but there is in Logie and Matt Preston, individual, now has one – for ‘Best New Talent’ at the 52nd annual Logie awards. The subject, unexpectedly, draws a high-pitched giggle from the man often drolly described as “larger than life”. It’s the first laugh of the chat, and he delights in it.

“I was at the auditions the other day and at that age, around 12, they’re so natural. There’s no artifice there. The other thing is the show will be a lot less competitive. I watched 12 kids make pikelets – a lot of them had never made them before – along with a recipe for butterscotch sauce and another one for syrup. That was exhilarating. Watching them do something they hadn’t done before and do it well was a really nice experience. There’s a certain way you’ve got to handle stuff with kids. You’ve got to be a lot more sensitive with kids, think a little bit more about what you say and how you say it.”

“What’s changed for me since the Logie? Nothing!” he says. “I have a little silver man that sits on my mantlepiece. That’s what’s changed. I haven’t suddenly been given a Bentley convertible, I’m not living in a super-glamorous pad. It’s pretty much business as usual. I think the best comment on my relationship with the boys is that they were genuinely excited for me to win the Logie. I got really lovely notes from both of them. “The fame? It’s far easier to deal with when you’re old,” Preston says frankly. “I think you understand how ridiculous it is. It’s far easier to deal with when you’re doing a show with two other boys that you know and love because you’ve got someone to talk to. If any of us gets pompous, there’s two others to prick that bubble. In terms of general insights, we all have to behave much better! There are strange things like being photographed when you’re eating. “The media trappings of the celebrity are the weirdest. Finding that you’ve been spotted doing things you weren’t doing. Like eating in a buffet out at Craigieburn, and you’re like, ‘I wasn’t even in Craigieburn’! There are other nice things, like when I was in Adelaide just after the show broke and I walked from my hotel to a restaurant and about one in three people said ‘good morning’, or ‘hello Matt’. It’s freaky but it’s also kind of nice.” The experience of interviewing Preston is quite like pitching in baseball. Or, less Americanly, it’s like house softball in high school. The thing is, no matter what you serve up to the big guy, he hits the ball solidly. It is a satisfying and slightly dispiriting sensation. Journalists are either excellent or terrible to interview. The former know what is required and they do it. Read: answer

the questions, stay on point, perhaps give a bit of extra colour. Preston is one of these. The latter think too much and become self-questioning, lost in the feedback loop. Preston’s blade strokes are deft and no matter how hard or soft I chuck it, he’s hitting it cleanly. Time for the curviest ball in my diminishing repertoire – Matt Preston, Ralph magazine’s “Wanker of The Year” 2010, placing him in the esteemed company of previous winners Kyle Sandilands and Rove McManus and well ahead of “Male Twilight Fans” who polled solidly in this year’s list at 59. I wonder, bravado aside, is it a stinger? The question barrels down the telephone line. Some curve ball. Turns out the damn thing’s straight as a die. “No, not at all. What’s really lovely about that has been the reaction of other people. I’ve not had to say or do anything about it.” The ball sails into the car park and sets off several alarms. “One of the things that’s going to happen when you’re on a top-rating show is that people are going to try and get commercial advantage by connecting to you. There was a piece in the Sydney Morning Herald, it was a review of the year and one of the things was about MasterChef judges being overexposed. And they put me on the front cover! I didn’t want to say anything but if I’m overexposed, this is not the way to help it!” All well and good and a fine point, but as Preston’s rant continues I wonder, doth the lady protest too much? “There was a poll shortly after it came out and 91 per cent of people thought I didn’t deserve it,” Preston says, referring to the Ralph list. “I think the other thing you realise, and it’s something that Justin Charles, the Richmond football player said, is that when you walk into a room, not everyone’s going to love you. You know? Ten per cent of people are automatically going to not like you because you remind them of someone that bullied them at school or there’s something about you that rubs them up the wrong way. "What matters and what’s important is that your friends and your family don’t think you change and that when they see you on television that it’s the person they see in real life. This way you’re not trapped into playing a role that isn’t you. “The nice thing about MasterChef is that it comes from a place of genuinely wanting all these people to do well and really wanting them to change their lives. It’s one of those great subjects of conversation, if you start talking about food, anyone can contribute.”

A

nd so with a mighty rush of wind, boy Preston is a lovely talker, and 10 minutes over my time limit (the Channel Ten publicist has been doggedly calling me for the past five and I have been doggedly ignoring him, sorry Paul) the Matt Preston experience concludes. He says helpfully, “is there anything else before I go?” I glance at my notes. There are two words scrawled at the top of the page, “CELESTIAL BLUE?????” and then a confusion of question marks. Preparing for the interview, I decided to scrutinise some of Preston’s cravats on the dedicated page on his website. The obsessive in me took over. I decided it was essential to assess each and every one. Anyway, I fell for a comely little electric blue number, sprinkled exotically with a pink Chinese motif. I started looking out for him on MasterChef. I asked in a shop in Brunswick Street if they had one by that name. Will I one day see my blue boy? Preston delivers crushing news. “Celestial Blue would be one of my least-worn cravats. I don’t know why, I think it’s because he’s one of those cravats that looks brilliant with Tom, the pink satin one. It’s kind of a special cravat, he’s a bit summery, so you’ll probably see him come out in Junior MasterChef.” \

for us from one winter to the next. However, many of the ready-to-wear shows in Paris, London and New York emphasised the addition of crisp autumnal shades to amp up our confidence. Designers such as Sonia Rykiel and Chloé made the most of neutral shades throughout their autumn/ winter collections, creating a sleek and sophisticated look by using sheer fabrics for shirts, dresses and skirts in creamy colours, including peach, beige and sun-kissed caramel, to pep up our mood. It’s a trend that is also spilling into spring/summer 2010-11 collections, too. Last month, when US First Lady Michelle Obama was described as wearing a nude-tone dress during a White House state dinner, it created a wave of scrutiny among bloggers, fashion editors and even daily newspapers. The reason? Journalists asked what shade of nude was Mrs Obama wearing. It certainly wasn’t a reflection of her skin tone. The dress, designed by Naeem Khan, was a sterling-silver sequin, abstract floral strapless gown that was later revised to champagne in colour. In a world increasingly aware of political correctness, not even fashion is exempt. So when we refer to nude in fashion, what do we mean? It can include any number of interpretations from syrupy pink, white, yellows, beige, browns, toasted brown and tawny beige – it’s as wide and varied as the shades of foundation you find in a bottle. Below are some international labels doing their bit for natural colourings this season. Chloé's autumn/winter 2009-10 collection by Hannah MacGibbon was stylishly romantic and made the most of neutral tones. The luxurious winter pieces included caramel coats and comfortable high-waisted pants as well as supple fabrics such as silk velvet and washed silk satins for lazy comfort. The queen of knitwear, Sonia Rykiel, also had fun creating a gorgeous women’s range for winter. Usually known for her bright fabrics, this time she had other things in mind, leaning to shades such as vanilla, caramel and – wait for it – crème brulee. Military and aviation themes were the focus at Burberry Prorsum and, while olive shades and leather garments ruled the catwalk, it was all about impressive tailoring with occasional muted tones to distract from the heaviness of fur, leather and wool. Celine turned it up a notch with 1980s romantic styling, adding sheer pale shirts with double pockets, worn loose and fancy free with leather skirts, while kaftan-style dresses in cream also wove a little magic.

Venezuelan designer Carolina Herrera brought back elegance with a stunning range – it was all about organza boleros, velvet and heavy plaid wool trousers and velvet belts. We love the earthy gold silk dress with the relaxed neckline and puff sleeves. Forty-five-year-old fashion house Emanuel Ungaro might have made headlines for the wrong reasons last year – teaming the brand’s designer, Estrella Archs, with rehab regular Lindsay Lohan, who assumed the role of artistic adviser, for what was a disappointing collection for 2009 (think buttock-revealing dresses and strippers’ nipple stickers). This winter, with no Lohan to be found, it was a return to wearable options, the notable winners in the ready-to-wear show being the leopard-print trousers, mustard jacket and hint of relaxed tweed. Who said getting back to basics meant taking it all off ? \

Michele Macrì

Prices:

Antipasto (for two): $20 Special pizzas: $17.50 Desserts: $10

Open:

Tuesday-Sunday 6pm-late Also takeaway

Bookings: 9549 0907 Pizzeria Amici is an intimate, bustling pizza restaurant that serves true Italian pizza from a wood-fired oven. The décor could be from any local bar/pizzeria in an Italian town. Like all pizza chefs Michele starts the day by firing up the oven, grating the cheese and making the dough. But he also has another job: watching the weather – all the time; on his phone; on the weather bureau website. When the weather is hot, he knows to use less yeast. When it’s cold, more yeast is needed to make the dough rise. He knows that if the dough is right the pizza will be right. Pizzeria Amici is very much a family affair. Wife Elena is responsible for the front of house. She runs the place with efficiency and flair and has chosen staff who share their commitment to quality pizza.

A slice of Italy

MIK I PIZ Z A A ND MICHE L E M A CRÌ

you walk in off Burgundy Street, WHEN  Heidelberg, you land in an Italian village. There’s a buzz of activity, and plenty of noise. They are

not fighting, just talking loudly, as Italians do. This village, known as Pizzeria Amici, holds just 50 people, but they make enough noise for a crowd three times the size – especially when a family of 16, from grandmother to six-year-old, is celebrating a birthday. The television is stuck on SBS – after all, it is the night that Italy is due to play New Zealand – and Pizzeria Amici is bracing for an all-nighter. But you get the sense that this joint is always jumping. From the tea towels from such regions as Liguria and Isola d’Elba to the football jerseys, the inevitable Ferrari poster and picture of a Fiat 500, the scarves and the flags, little bits of Italy jump out all over the place. The blackboard doesn’t have specials on it; rather, it says “Forza Italia” – go Italy. Pizza maker Michele Macrì and his wife Elena opened Pizzeria Amici in 2005. He is from Calabria, in the toe of Italy, but learnt to make pizza in Pisa. She was born in Torino, came to Australia as a child and grew up in East Doncaster. They met in 2003, when he was the pizza chef at a pizzeria in Lower Templestowe. “He was making the pizzas, I was eating them,” says

Elena. At Amici they have hit on a formula for success: keep it simple, keep it Italian. Michele still speaks only a few words of English. If there are changes to an order, Elena relays it to him in Italian. The staff is either Italian born or of Italian background. All speak Italian. When they took over the restaurant, they scuttled the electric pizza oven, built a traditional wood-fired oven and ditched the hackneyed parmigianas and scallopine that are standard fare in many suburban pizza restaurants. The result is tasty, straightforward and top notch. The menu is limited to antipasti and pizza, including specials, salads and sweets based on pizza. Michele might be from southern Italy but he has eschewed the popular and incorrect notion that pizzas are drenched in tomato sauce and laden with shredded cheese. This pizzeria serves hearty but refined dishes. The antipasto platter includes asparagus wrapped in speck, melt-in-the-mouth asiago cheese, (traditionally from the Veneto and Alto Adige regions of Italy) with radicchio, small squares of pizza made from chickpea flour and a bowl of green olives stuffed with veal, rolled in breadcrumbs and quickly fried. The pizza menu is small but tasty. There are the old favourites of margherita, capricciosa and quattro

(DARRIAN TRAYNOR)

VERDICT 

Pizzeria Amici is a complete Italian package – from the waiters to the chef, the décor and, most importantly, the pizza. It serves the real deal and it is a runaway success. Service is quick and friendly and staff is knowledgeable. There’s Italian flying between chef, waiters and Elena. Regulars know to book, especially those from distant suburbs such as Camberwell and Williamstown.

stagione (four seasons) as well as interesting varieties of l’ortolan with roasted pumpkin, leek and fior di latte cheese and mare e terra (sea and earth) with tomato, cheese prawns, spinach and garlic. Among the special pizzas is one called La Pisa, after the city that Michele called home for many years. It has tomatoes, cheese, gorgonzola, hot salami and anchovies. The Miki pizza – named after the chef – has radicchio, parmesan, brie, fresh tomato with a balsamic vinegar glaze. This finishing touch adds a real sweetness to the dish. Not to be outdone, Elena has her own signature pizza. Known as The Boss, it has speck, porcini mushrooms and cheese on tomato base. Vegetarians are well catered for. Artichokes, eggplant and rocket are popular toppings. The wine menu is also compact. There are a couple of white wines – one Italian, one from New Zealand – and five Italian red wines. All are available by the glass or the bottle. Beers include the popular Nastro Azzurro as well as beer from Sardinia, Friuli and Sicily. Pizza also figures on the sweet side of the menu with a baby calzone – known as a calzoncino with Nutella – and a sweet little pizza with pears or strawberries. \

TASTINGS\ DRINK THIS PONDALOWIE VINEYARDS MT TEMPRANILLO 2008 (Bendigo) $24; 13.5% a/v ★★★½

Food match: Pork migas

Tempranillo is still finding its feet in Australia and Pondalowie has been growing it longer than most. This smells of red cherries, strawberries, raspberries and clove spice. It is almost full-bodied, with mouth-filling flavours of red berries and cola, with just a hint of orange rind. The balance is good, with silky tannins draped around a nice acid backbone. Watch out for Aussie tempranillo – it’s got a bright future here.

love the vagaries of wine, but a real bugbear I DO  is the Old World and its assumption that we all know what’s in the bottle of regional wines. All major European wine regions have strict rules about what types of grape can be grown in a particular region and even what percentages of grapes can go into a wine – but they don’t bother telling the drinker what’s in the bottle. It can be bloody confusing, as well as intimidating, and I reckon it’s part of the reason New World wines such as ours, which proudly display their contents on the front, are so popular in places such as the UK. This week I thought I’d break down what goes into some of the more famous wine regions and review an Aussie-made counterpart.

France: Bordeaux Almost all Bordeaux wines are blends. A typical blend consists of various percentages of merlot, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc, often with small additions of petit verdot and malbec. The Bordeaux region is split in two by the Garonne River, with merlot dominant on the right bank and cabernet sauvignon on the left. The region’s whites are predominantly made from sémillon and sauvignon blends. France: Burgundy The most famous wines produced here, and often just referred to as red or white Burgundy, are pinot noir and chardonnay. Chablis (chardonnay) and Beaujolais (gamay) are also part of Burgundy, but are usually referred to by their own names.

LOVE A BARGAIN? 

France: Rhône The Rhône is divided into two distinct areas, the north and the south. The north produces great shiraz, sometimes with a small percentage of white grapes, usually viognier, blended in. The southern Rhône produces an array of red, white and rosé wines, often from blends of several grapes including shiraz, grenache, mouvedre and cinsault. Viognier, marsanne and roussanne are the main whites of the Rhône. Spain: Rioja The best-known and most widely planted variety is tempranillo. It forms the base of most Riojas, and is often blended with substantial quantities of grenache, along with graciano, and mazuelo. Cabernet sauvignon and merlot also find their way into some of the modern blends.

This is just one of a range of top Italian varietals in the Pizzini range. This smells of cherries, raspberries with a hint of dried herbs. It’s light in colour (similar to a pinot noir) and has a nice sweet and sour balance with flavours of strawberry and sour cherry with a nice earthy finish along with light tannins. All of which adds up to a really drinkable wine. PICARDY SHIRAZ 2008 (Pemberton) $25; 14% a/v ★★★★½

Food match: Grilled steak with Café de Paris butter One of my favourite reds of the year, and quite a bargain, this shiraz also has 2 per cent each of viognier and malbec blended in. It needs a bit of time in the decanter to flourish, but when it does there are floral aromas of cherries and plums along with funky, meaty notes and some smokey oak. It’s a wine built around a great structure rather than power, with subtle flavours of plum and red berries, as well as pepper, that linger in the mouth for a long time. BLUE POLES ALLOURAN 2007 (Margaret River) $25; 14% ★★★★½

Food match: Slow-cooked lamb shoulder with pommes boulangere This is a classic right-bank Bordeaux blend of merlot (66 per cent) and cabernet franc. It displays complex aromas of plums, redcurrants and blackcurrants, roses and tobacco with a hint of cedar oak. It’s dark in colour and fills the mouth with fleshy and rich red fruit flavours. It’s savoury, too, and has firm, fine-grained tannins supporting the fruit flavours and well-balanced acid. This is a super wine that gets better the longer it’s open. 5★ OUTSTANDING 4★ REALLY GOOD 3★ GOOD 2★ OK 1★ NOT WORTH IT

Italy: Chianti The Italians aren’t big on rules (if you’ve ever driven in Italy you’ll know what I mean) and it’s only in the past 15 years or so that strict guidelines have applied to Chianti. These Tuscan wines must contain a minimum of 75 per cent sangiovese, up to 10 per cent canaiolo and up to 20 per cent of any other approved grape variety such as cabernet sauvignon, merlot or shiraz. You don’t see them often any more, but the squat bottle with the straw basket is called a fiasco. \

BEN THOMAS senorthomas@gmail.com

HODDLES CREEK CHARDONNAY 2009 (Yarra Valley) $19; 13.2% ★★★★½ Food match: Celeriac remoulade. Hoddles Creek Chardonnay is a favourite in our house and this new release is up there with the best I’ve tried. It’s an elegant wine with smells of white peach, melon, hints of tropical fruit and some funky aromas. It has an excellent balance between acid and fruit and is quite linear on the palate. It has an excellent creamy mouthfeel with intense peach, grapefruit and mineral flavours along with an almond nuttiness. This is released early to keep the price down and will only get better, so stock up and enjoy over the next few years.

A LeAP of fAith The Australian Ballet will celebrate the centenary of the birth of legendary director Dame Peggy van Praagh with a gala tribute, writes Corrie Perkin.

he was forthright and determined. Her elegant beauty reminded people of a 1940s movie star. In the rehearsal room, she was a tough coach: one minute she’d sharply criticise a dancer’s technique, but a few minutes later laugh heartily with them over a funny incident. She loved a drink and a party, but believed discipline and hard work created fine dancers. And during her tenure as the first artistic director of the Australian Ballet, Peggy van Praagh nurtured many fine dancers. One such dancer was David McAllister, now the AB’s artistic director. In 1981 McAlister was a 17-year-old student at the Australian Ballet School when Dame Peggy was invited to prepare students for a production of Giselle. McAllister wasn’t in that production, but he watched rehearsals and was in awe of van Praagh’s ballet knowledge. “She never ever called herself a choreographer, her tangible strength was as a producer and she was always able to re-create someone else’s ballet beautifully,’’ he recalls. The following year McAllister worked with the grand dame of Australian ballet, who was then a guest teacher for the school’s end-of-year production. Chronic arthritis was starting to affect van Praagh’s body, but McAllister remembers her as a woman of “great spirit, she was amazing. She taught such intricate classes in such detail, which was really remarkable because she was no longer able to dance herself.” On Friday, June 25, the Australian Ballet will premiere its gala tribute to van Praagh. Titled Peggy!, the production will feature snippets from works from van Praagh’s repertoire, including her 1973 production of Sleeping Beauty, her romantic pas de deux from Giselle, and the 1938 production of Gala Performance for which the young ballerina van Praagh acted as muse for British choreographer Antony Tudor. Peggy! celebrates the centenary of van Praagh’s birthday in London in September, 1910. It is also a fitting lead-up to the company’s 50th birthday in 2012. It is a widely-held view among the arts community that without the leadership of British-born van Praagh, the Federal Government’s plans for a national ballet company might have stalled. Certainly, the company’s swift formation, the successful lobbying for a new ballet school that trained young local dancers, ambitious interstate and national touring programs, and bringing some of the world’s finest dancers such as Erik Bruhn, Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev to Australia while also encouraging the involvement of expat dancer Robert Helpmann, were largely due to van Praagh’s tireless work. “Peggy van Praagh was the ideal person for that time,’’ remembers long-time AB dancer and staff member Colin Peasley. “She was a person who understood the traditions of ballet, and she was a person who understood the Australian psyche. She worked her arse off to improve technique among our dancers ... and she was determined for Australian ballet to have an Australian training system, and not one that was based on other systems.’’ From the age of four, Peggy van Praagh was standing on tip-toes with a grace and strength that encouraged her mother, a former governess, to take her to ballet

Dame Peggy van Praagh DBE

Born: London, sept 1, 1910 Died: Melbourne, Jan 15, 1990 Educated: King Alfred school, London. Joined Ballet Rambert in 1933, then Antony tudor’s London Ballet and the Royal Ballet. taught at sadler’s wells theatre Ballet in the 1950s. Arrived in Australia in 1959. In 1960 and 1961 directed Borovansky Ballet. Became AB’s founding artistic director in 1962. Artistic director jointly with sir Robert helpmann, 1965-1974. Co-ordinator of dance studies at the wA Academy of Performing Arts in 1982. Inducted into the hall of fame at the 2000 Australian Dance Awards. Made a Dame Commander of the order of the British Empire in 1970.

lessons. Van Praagh was immediately drawn to the artform, later saying dance “has been everything to me all my life’’. Van Praagh made her debut in London in 1929 with a small dance group. Four years later she joined the famous company of Marie Rambert where she first met choreographer Antony Tudor. Choreographer and director Sir Peter Wright recalls van Praagh’s “brilliant technique as a dancer, her wonderful feet and terrific vitality on stage’’. Van Praagh later joined Tudor’s own company and soon became his assistant and company teacher. In 1941 van Praagh joined the Royal Ballet as a dancer and teacher, and in the 1950s she was assistant director of the Sadler’s Wells Theatre Ballet working under Dame Ninette de Valois, one of British ballet’s great luminaries. After a stint freelancing she arrived in Australia in 1959 to teach with the old Melbourne-based Borovansky Ballet. Immediately van Praagh could see the potential of a national company. There was a growing awareness and appreciation of ballet among local theatre-goers. She also believed that Australian dancers had a strength and an on-stage presence that could rival the world’s best. Training programs and schools, performance opportunities, well-equipped rehearsal studios and ongoing funding were needed, however. When the then federal treasurer Harold Holt told her in 1961 he would lobby his prime minister, Sir Robert Menzies, for money, van Praagh set to work on her plan for an Australian ballet company. In his 1977 book Opera and Ballet in Australia, the late John Cargher, respected critic and dance writer, wrote: “Let nobody deny the claims of the Australian Ballet that it is a world-class company. It certainly is that.’’ Given that he wrote this just 15 years after van Praagh had whipped her fledgling dance company into existence, it was a significant statement for Cargher to make. It was also a tribute to van Praagh, Helpmann and the talented dancers and teachers who’d contributed so much. Peggy! recalls that exciting period and honours a ballet champion. Van Praagh’s influence, says McAllister, “was profound and her legacy continues on. Today we see the results of her dream to have a unique Australian company whose dancers are nurtured and trained to produce a recognised national style’’. \ Peggy! runs from June 25-July 5 The Arts Centre, State Theatre Tickets: www.australianballet.com.au Main: Dame Peggy van Praagh.

REVIEW\ GARDENING

BRUSSELS SPROUTS (Brassica oleracea)

These buds have had a bad press for years and are remembered by many a baby boomer as over-boiled, grey blobs. Grow your own, pick when small, slice finely and stir fry with a little ginger, garlic and soy and this much-maligned vegetable will take on a new persona. Sow in seed trays and plant out in four to six weeks, spacing plants 45-60 centimetres apart or pick up some punnets from your local nursery and plant them out now. They are frost-hardy and need cold weather to bring out their flavour. Mix them with other plants to confuse pests, such as aphids, that are partial to them. Mulch your beds well to help the soil retain water and if it is dry, water your sprout plants deeply when water restrictions allow. You will be able to harvest sprouts in 12-13 weeks (from September to October). MUSTARD GREENS (Brassica juncea)

Also called mustard lettuce, these do not do well in summer heat, so winter is the time to establish a good crop. Sow directly into garden beds for greens to add zing to stir fries and salads from August. Over the next three months sow about 10 seeds at a time. In a month’s, time thin out the weakest four seedlings and sow another 10. Repeat the next month. This will ensure you have a steady supply through until October. SPRING ONIONS (Allium fistulosum)

Even the tiniest city garden or balcony should have space for a pot of spring onions. They can be grown year round and will reward you with a steady supply for salads, omelets, stir fries and a multitude of other dishes. If growing in garden beds, sow direct, then thin the seedlings to encourage the strongest to grow. Spring onions mature in 8-10 weeks in summer and 12-14 weeks winter. If you are growing them in a pot, use a premium potting mix, make sure the pot drains well and water deeply every other day. If you buy a bunch of spring onions at your greengrocer and only use a few, plant the rest in a pot of potting mix and water them in – chances are they will grow, rewarding you with an ongoing supply. SHALLOTS (Allium cepa)

MARY RIEKERT explains the best of the best for planting veggies in June. Cold, foggy mornings and short days make most Melburnians retreat indoors, but now’s the time to be sowing the winter vegetables that thrive in our cooler months. While our northern hemisphere counterparts have to sit out their winter months poring over seed catalogues and hoping they have an early spring, we have the luxury of two growing seasons. Winter means greens – cabbages, broccoli, brussels sprouts, bok choy, lettuce … all vegetables that enjoy the cold weather and that, if left to grow in our warmer months, will bolt rapidly (go to seed). As always, make sure you dig over your beds and add lots of organic manure and compost. If you are growing veggies in pots, use a premium potting mix that will contain moisture-retaining ingredients and the correct nutrients. Most veggies need at least half a day of full sun, so position your beds or pots accordingly.

SPINACH (Spinacia oleracea)

(STEVE GORTON / IMAGE SOURCE / GETTY IMAGES / BRAND X PICTURES / ISTOCKPHOTO / THINKSTOCK)

Greens power

For the city gardener, shallots make more sense that trying to raise a crop of onions, as shallots are a multiplying onion and per square metre will deliver more bang for your buck. Shallots are grown from small bulbs on the main plant and, once established, you can keep a supply going by saving a few bulblets each year and replanting them the next. Like garlic, shallots grow in clusters with a head composed of multiple cloves. Water well if the winter is dry but in the summer, as the leaves begin to wilt, allow them to dry off. Harvest in about 15 weeks and keep a few for your next planting. Dry the bulbs in the sun for a few days and then store in a cool, dry and dark place and use as required This vegetable really is a winter crop in Melbourne. Many nurseries offer spinach and bok choy seedlings for sale in some of our hottest months, but if planted out, these will bolt within weeks leaving you with stringy, bitter leaves. Spinach is packed with antioxidants and a long list of vitamins and is a welcome addition to winter dishes. Sow directly into garden beds or pots and thin to grow plants 20-30 centimetres apart. Water deeply several times a week if the winter is dry. Succession sowing will provide a supply through the winter months. If you don’t want to grow from seed you will find spinach seedlings in your local nursery now. Unfortunately snails love spinach, so you may want to use a beer trap to keep them at bay. Take a foil pie dish or a saucer and place it near seedlings, fill it with beer and retire for the night. Snails cannot resist beer and will drown in it. If you do want to use snail bait, make sure it is made from bran and iron phosphate, which is not harmful to pets and wildlife. RHUBARB (Rheum rhabarbarum)

Rhubarb is a slightly old-fashioned plant but it offers unlimited culinary opportunities. WARNING – rhubarb leaves are poisonous and should NEVER be eaten. Most nurseries will have rhubarb crowns in stock in winter. These should be planted out as soon as possible in a rich soil with good drainage. If you have heavy or clay soil, your rhubarb is probably better off being grown in a pot. Rhubarb needs a cold winter and prefers cool summers. If you can find a sheltered bed where the plants receive morning sun, but have full afternoon shade in summer, you have the ideal spot. On warm days water deeply when restrictions allow. Succession sowing: For gardeners with limited space, it’s best to sow small amounts every month. If you sow a few seeds of snow peas, peas, rocket, radish carrots, beetroot and lettuce this month, and a few more next month, it will ensure you have a steady supply of these veggies into spring. \

ower Plenty is known for its large blocks and big houses where families can spread their wings. This family has not only spread its wings, it has extended its house to massive proportions so that it measures almost 100 squares. And if there was a prize for a property that is almost a suburb in its own right, surely this one – set on 4738 square metres – would be among the top contenders. It has the usual formal sitting and dining rooms plus five bedrooms and bathrooms but also includes: a resort-style swimming pool with cascading water feature; tennis court, luxurious sound-proofed home theatre with “gold-class” seating for 12; professional gymnasium complete with steam room and lockers; entertainment room; 2500-bottle wine cellar; and guest wing. Then there are the outdoor living and entertaining areas – including a vast sandstone terrace with built-in barbecue. With its entrance through electric gates and lush, manicured gardens there is no hint at first of what lies ahead. Sure, the entry hall is large, attractive and has parquetry flooring.

Three more bedrooms and a bathroom are in a separate wing, which is also at the front of the house and part of the original building. Back in the entry hall again, you head towards the kitchen, which has been renovated and updated. For those with one eye on the stove and the other on the children, this set-up is ideal. A large horizontal window provides a wide view of what is happening by the pool, tennis court and the surrounding area. The kitchen has vast stretches of CaesarStone benchtops, excellent storage with soft-closing drawers, an island bench, a large appliance cupboard and walk-in pantry and stainless steel Gaggenau appliances. Garden outlooks are a feature of most rooms and the kitchen is no exception. It and the meals area overlook a very pretty courtyard garden through large windows. From the kitchen and meals area it’s just a few steps down to the family room.

watching. In the next part of this space, a giant plasma screen is mounted on a suede-finished padded wall for maximum sound absorption. Just when you thought you had seen most of this grand home, a long “breezeway” with glass walls extends to the entertainment area. Here, the vast entertainment room – everything is massive in this house – has polished concrete floors, a large open fireplace set in a stone, cantilevered bench and marble bar where top-shelf liquor is stored on back-lit glass shelves, rather like a nightclub. This room opens through french doors to the covered entertaining space. Still in this part of the house, the gym has its own lockers, with the steam room nearby. It also opens to the garden. Nothing has been left to chance here. The home cinema, with its black drapes on three walls, thick, soft carpet underfoot and raked seating, is designed so that the seats can be removed if the new owner wants to close the theatre and use it as another room. Guests are catered for in their own suite, which opens to the terrace overlooking the pool and tennis court. With facilities such as these and the luxury that is on offer, it’s a wonder these people ever leave home. \ mharris@theweeklyreview.com.au

Lower Plenty is 16 kilometres north-east of the CBD and forms part of the City of Banyule. It is a fairly small area with a population of 3938, according the 2006 census. The median age is 41, with most people aged 15-65. The area was first settled in 1855 when a Hungarian immigrant bought land to establish a wine industry. It was linked to neighbouring areas by the old Templestowe wooden bridge, which was the subject of much argument for many years. The bridge was damaged in various floods over the decades before its last remnants were finally washed away in the 1960s. The suburb is not very built-up compared with neighbouring Eltham and Templestowe. Many of its large houses are tucked out of sight and well away from the main roads. Lower Plenty scores top marks for natural features. The Yarra and Plenty rivers run through it. It also has great walking trails and cycling tracks, a golf club, a primary school and the Lower Plenty Hotel. Football and cricket clubs are in nearby Montmorency.

Make your choice from three, four or five bedrooms.

ELTHAM The mud bricks used to build this house provide wonderful insulation – it’s warm in winter and cool in summer. They also lend a charming, natural feel to the interior, which is added to by the use of reclaimed timber for framework. A highlight is the parents’ retreat: double doors open onto a little hideaway, with room for a couch on which one could bask in the sun streaming in from a large window. A flight of stairs leads up to the master bedroom. The design gives it privacy and quiet, as well as access to a private courtyard. The zoned living aspect is completed by the rest of the bedrooms being in what is almost a separate wing. Down a corridor to the right are two bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes, as well as a smaller room that could be set up as a bedroom or study. At the end of the corridor is a larger bedroom, with direct access to the carport, which was

FLETCHERS, 9430 1111 10 Ancona Court, Eltham Price: $660,000 + Auction: Exp of interest close July 21 at 5pm originally a rumpus room before a door was added – if desired, a simple renovation would restore it to its former use. Outside are terraced lawn areas and multilevel courtyards, which are great for entertaining. At the front is a spacious deck; it’s a sensible feature with the house in such an elevated position, as it affords excellent views of the surrounding area. Ancona Court is leafy and peaceful, much like the house itself. \ HARI RAJ

DARREN JONES, 9432 2544 4 Scarlet Drive, Bundoora Price: $600,000 + Auction: July 17 at 12.30pm

Clean, modern lines and an open design characterise this house, which is just three years old. Polished concrete floors connect the master bedroom, in the front of the house, to a study nook and the expanse of the living/dining/family areas. The lock-up double garage can double as a fitness area, and there’s an abundance of outdoor entertainment zones from which to choose. Out the back is the perfect setting for an outdoor cinema; it would take just a little work to set it up. The vendor points out the ease of maintenance throughout, as well as one of the most appealing traits of an open-plan house – the ability to see the kids wherever they are, inside and out. \ HARI RAJ

MILES, 9459 5666 3 Coolock Court, Rosanna Price: $650,000 - $700,000 Auction: July 3 at 11am

Coolock Court is a tranquil, private cul-de-sac, and this house reflects much of that calm. An architect-designed 1970s house, its high ceilings give it an airy feel. The dining and living areas are spread out under a sloping roof, warmed by an impressive fireplace. The three bedrooms towards the rear of the house all look out onto the back garden, which loops around three-quarters of the house and has lots of space for children to play. That wide expanse of garden also faces north, which is an immensely popular feature. A separate deck and porch provide a great set-up for entertaining, as does the fact that both have access to the house’s meals area and wet bar. There is also a double garage – and a wine cellar – with a separate carport for easy access. \ HARI RAJ

This fabulous family house is set on a large allotment in the Greenhills area, which typically features tightly held properties that attract plenty of interest – and this house should be no exception. You enter via the verandah to a small vestibule, with formal dining and sitting room on the left and the main bedroom to the right.

Towards the rear are two bedrooms and a four-car garage/workshop. \ HARI RAJ
