REVIEW\ MOUTHING OFF BORROWED TIME “OPM,” says a sly-looking Danny DeVito, as he lets the dupe hang out there for a little while longer wondering just what the hell he means. And then that grin, one far too evil for someone that short and that cute, just before DeVito lowers the boom: “Other People’s Money,” he drawls in the movie of the same name. You never use your own – you take the risk with somebody else’s. It’s a philosophy on which an entire nation of home owners, holiday-house mortgagees, small and large business entrepreneurs has been bravely built: you take the gamble, back yourself, borrow the money – it always seems like so much! – and away you go. Virtually every household in this country has a debt that, in percentage terms, would make the rest of us sick with fear (only our own personal debt seems manageable, and that’s because we keep telling ourselves it is). But if you’re still paying off a home, or if you’ve only recently embarked on the endeavour, then your household debt is in the several hundred per cent range of your annual household income. Sick-making in isolation, but utterly reasonable when considered in the

context of your long working life, and the net wealth you are building with a sound investment. So why does the existence of national debt worth 6 per cent of Australia’s gross domestic product suddenly seem like a sin great enough to get you sent off to debtor’s jail? Why, in a country with multibillion-dollar turnovers, triple-A rated debt, and one of the best-looking balance sheets in the developed world, is a budget deficit a capital crime? It absolutely beats me. In the election campaign just concluded, one of the most bizarre features of the inter-party discussion was what the Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz calls “debt and deficit fetishism”. That’s the neurotic anxiety created by a budget slipping out of the black or into the red, or of a government taking on any debt at any point at all. A surplus is the fetish – money piling up as an example of good management. To what end, Stiglitz would ask, but then he’s the kind of guy who believes in governments actually doing things. This fetishism brought about the ludicrous sight of the Coalition and Labor engaged in a schoolboy competition of “my surplus is bigger than yours”, and the fanciful comparison of the Australian federal government with a common and/or garden-variety household: apparently, it’s poor form to run a deficit when Australians are expected to keep their households in order. But we do run deficits, and we do have debts.

VISIT US @

They’re called home loans, and the money loaned to us by other people so we can build up the assets, and the wealth, of our households, even with the penalty of interest. It’s not bad management – only if we overextend, or pour money into investments built on sand – and it’s what governments used to do when they wanted to build up the wealth of the country. I remember the 774 ABC Radio switchboard jammed with calls back when the issue of publicly funded infrastructure was on the table: the view was universally positive. Who else could afford to carry the debt, and who else could guarantee an outcome of public benefit? I also remember a former Victorian premier sitting on a vast pile of cash as he headed into his last election, and refusing to spend any of it … because it was the all-important surplus. But taxpayers don’t like you sitting on their money when you should either be doing things for them or giving the money back, and we know what happened to him. I may be a threatened species these days, but I don’t care if the budget is in deficit, as long as the country isn’t broke. Of all people, our government can afford the repayments. And besides, it’s Other People’s Money: it’s ours. \

REVIEW\ COVER STORY

I

t’s 7am on a Saturday, and a group of youths who seem to have lost their money and their dignity are rampaging around just outside Gordon Ramsay’s Maze restaurant in the new Crown Metropol hotel, howling like fools and looking like hell. The nofuss Ramsay himself would have sorted these guys out quick smart, but this morning it’s left to security to usher them onto Whiteman Street and home to nurse their hangovers. So what a contrast it is when the next young person to arrive in the room is Ian Thorpe, stylishly dressed and sporting a little scarf around that massive neck, to sit down for a talk about his strong views on environmental sustainability. It’s not a topic I’m used to discussing this early in the morning – indeed, I’m not used to discussing anything at this hour of the morning – but as this is the allocated time for our chat, I find some alertness in the litre or so of coffee inside me and soldier on.

OUT OF THE POOL AND OUT OF THE LIMELIGHT, IAN THORPE TRADES A LACK OF SCRUTINY FOR A NEW PASSION. Thing is, this is a sleep-in for Thorpe, who, as an elite swimmer from the age of 14, spent a decade getting up at 4.17am to get to training. “You’d always be quite excited when you woke up at 2.17, you’d go ‘Wow, another two hours sleep’,” Thorpe says. Was that hard? “The routine was never an issue. The structure that’s around getting up at the same time every morning is fantastic. That was just how you had to start the day.” It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard from Ian Thorpe. He’d been in our consciousness since he made the Australian national team at 14, became world champion at 15 and then went on to win five Olympic gold medals in the pool, dominating the 400-metre freestyle, anchoring Australia’s relay teams and attracting massive media coverage. After a golden career, he retired in 2006, aged 24, citing waning motivation. He largely retreated from interviews and media attention and he says he’s loving being away from the public spotlight. “Yeah, I enjoy it,” he says. “I live in a sleepy beachside town in Sydney and I have great neighbors. I wanted as little profile as I could possibly have.” It is still not easy for someone as huge as Thorpe to blend into the crowd. At the peak of his fame, the attention he received in Australia and, especially in Japan, was ridiculous, sometimes hysterical young girls screaming at him, others marvelling at his extraordinary physique and, of course, those famously outsize feet that guided him to so many victories. He was an Adonis with a chiseled body and an appealing face, as marketable as a sportsperson could get. There was a softness about him – including in the way he spoke – that suggested a modesty and capacity to see the hyerbole in context. He never really enjoyed the fame. “I am quite a shy person. I like just doing my own thing. For people to recognise me is really still quite odd for me. I’m comfortable and I understand it but it’s not what I desire. People either think you’re much better than you really are or far worse than you really are. I know I fall somewhere in between. I’m quite logical with this. I

am not that good. Let’s get a grip, people. I’m not this legendary character that you’ve created out there. That’s what you make up for movies, it’s not real.” Thorpe has emerged from relative anonymity to support Scouts Australia’s grant application to the Federal Government for $24 million to install solar panels on every scout hall in Australia and feed the excess energy created back into the grid, providing the government with $6 million in carbon credits. The panels will cost $18,000 each to install. The scheme follows a water-saving initiative the Scouts implemented two years ago. A federal government grant of $17 million helped supply almost every scout hall in Australia with a 5000-litre water tank, which was connected to toilet-flushing systems, and 140 scout campsites with water tanks for storage and toilet flushing. “It feels to me as though we have a great opportunity to lead the world here and to show that we are doing something in this area that is significant,” Thorpe says. “It can be a small step towards a sustainable future. It’s an extension of what the kids learn about their responsibility to protect the environment.”

A

fter retiring from swimming, Thorpe threw himself into working on environmental issues. He made two documentaries, Action Earth for Foxtel, about the practical things that can be done to help the environment, and Fish Out Of Water, which looked at the global impacts of climate change. “I’ve always had an interest (in the environment) but I didn’t really put energy into it. I was really fortunate – because of what I’d achieved in swimming – that I had access to really the best people in the country and around the world, where they didn’t mind answering my dumb questions … I got hooked.” Thorpe is one of 200 “young global leaders” with the World Economic Forum, joining task forces on resource management. “We’re young, we’ll say and do whatever we feel like, and kind of interrupt the senior people,” Thorpe says. “It’s a group that is trying to do good. We’ll put things in different ways that may not have been considered. We have to be able to make such a strong argument to have things put on the agenda.” He talks about the concept of “recycling up”. “It’s looking at something as simple as a water bottle we all drink from that can now be turned into a T-shirt.” Thorpe was as ready as any athlete could be for retirement. “I spent a month where I continued training but gradually doing less and less,” he says. “You’re supposed to do three months of that, but after a month I thought ‘Why am I doing this? I’m fine, nothing’s going to happen, this is rubbish, this whole ‘transitioning out’ kind of thing’.” He was always hugely aware that his life as an elite athlete was very different from that of his friends, including his diet. The voracious need for protein to replace the energy he burnt meant breakfast was “usually leftovers from the night before or the night before that – I used to eat things like curries, which was quite odd at that time of the morning. It was dinner food at breakfast.” Thorpe was only 24 when he walked away from swimming, and he says people said to him that he could have done another two Olympics, but he felt it was time. “I was ready to move on. I wasn’t going to go with what the obvious rules would be, go through another Olympics, go onto the next one. I realised it wasn’t what I wanted to do any more. The decision was a long time coming. It was years. “I needed to do other things, I needed other stimulation. I also thought at 24 I was young enough to move on and do things I wanted to do, and with enough maturity to take that direction.” He went to Beijing to watch the Olympics a year after retiring, aged 25. It was, he says, a little strange not to

be competing. “I think (the Olympics) will be strange until I’m old and stop thinking ‘I wonder if I could swim here?’ Then when things really start to break down, I’ll go ‘I wonder…. Oh no, I can’t, my hips out’.” Did he wish he was in the pool at Beijing? “Not really. A little bit, yeah. There is always going to be a part of you that wishes you were experiencing this again. I think that’s what will happen when I watch in London. And then after that I’ll think ‘Yeah, I’m getting too old for this now’.” Aside from his environmental work, Thorpe puts a lot of time into the Ian Thorpe Foundation, which focuses on indigenous health and education. “These are my two passions,” he says. He’s also busy with Thorpedo, a food-and-beverage business in Japan and he’s written a cookbook to be published in February. “It’s what I eat,” he says of the recipes. “I’m busy and I’ve gone back to cooking strategies when I was an athlete. All the excuses everyone makes – I’m too tired, I don’t have the time. That’s me as well. It’s not good enough. Sunday night I usually have a spare three hours so I do most of my prep for the rest of the week. There’s always a meal in the house, no matter how tired I am. Having the right basics in the house if you only have 10 minutes.” These days he swims when he’s stressed and does an hour of exercise every day except Sunday. Three days a week he does light weights and another three days he does cardio work. He says he lives “in Sydney and on a plane”, always going somewhere. Did he ever resent the work he had to put in to become an elite swimmer? “No, I loved training. Some days were tough, but I enjoyed pushing myself in training. People always ask if I miss training. I can

get the training feeling back, that feeling of pushing myself or hurting myself, allowing myself to break down physically from exertion. But there are elements of competition that I can’t get back and are now memories. And I’m happy to relive the memories in my own head.” Did he feel as a teenager that he missed out on the mucking around that his friends were doing? “Not with regret. I didn’t think about it when I was young. As I’ve got a little bit older, I’ve realised more what I did miss out on. Like really lame things, things I would have liked to have done, but then I compare it to the lifestyle that I had and it’s like ‘OK, every kid would jump at the opportunity to do these things’.” Such as? “Like going to parties, teenage stuff, hanging out with friends doing nothing.” Did he feel pressured by anyone to keep swimming? “No,” he says. “I was pushed by myself. Not the obvious ones – trainers, parents, which you see happen to a lot of athletes. I wish I continued my education. I’m a little resentful that I missed out when I could have maintained it while I was swimming.” Thorpe left school in Year 10 and had home schooling. He didn’t do home schooling for Year 11 or Year 12. “I would have been doing my HSC during Sydney Olympics,” he says. “I was world champion when I was 15. I was kind of guided away from completing (school) because I was told it was a distraction and it was and it would have been. But I felt it would have been a really healthy distraction. A lot of sporting codes will speak about trying to develop athletes that have all these different

facets and continue with their education. A lot of people are very good at talking the talk in this space and it actually doesn’t happen, having these well-rounded athletes.” I mentioned a recent disturbing magazine article about a 12-year-old surfer who does home schooling, or whose father claims he does. According to the article’s author, the topic became uncomfortable, with the boy’s father refusing to confirm or deny whether his son is a registered home schooler, which you need to be if your child is not attending school. “I’d be encouraging him to stay at school,” Thorpe says. “There’s a balance between what you do. If you concentrate everything on just one aspect of your life, it’s just not healthy. All of us have our work but we have interests outside of it. You’ve got to pursue those as well, so all your eggs aren’t in one basket. There’s some balance to it. If you perform really well, that’s great. Who are you going to share that with? If you’re not doing so well, and you place your worth and value on your performance in one area, it’s really not healthy.” While open about his business and environmental pursuits, Thorpe never speaks of his private life. “I rarely speak to journalists about it. I’m happy to do interviews but I have to protect people around me. I’ve grown up in front of the camera and I deal with it pretty well, but I’ve seen how it hurts other people around. It makes it really tough on new relationships, really. My family suffers from it too. What I do at home – no one’s been into my home, I don’t sell pictures of it.” He has written a letter to Julia Gillard seeking support for the solar panels for the scouts. He says he works well with both sides of politics. “For the most part they are very receptive to speaking with me,” he says. Thorpe has to go now, to be in Frankston by 9am, to spruik the environmental message for Scouts Australia. The next stage of his life will be without the noise and white light of his swimming career. The screaming girls have been replaced by conversations with sober politicians, the lap after endless lap in the pool replaced with frequent flyer kilometres selling his vision. He could be a gentle force for change. Which will suit Ian Thorpe just fine. \

around the corner. Now, thanks to the boom created by the Austin Mercy hospital opening, the street has a collection of cafes and restaurants that would not be out of place in Fitzroy or Carlton. Among them is one that proffers a strong Brazilian connection. No, not the hair-removal Brazilian. In the kitchen at Vyve, two of the chefs are Brazilian, and amid the standard offerings we found a Brazilian tapas menu offering some of the dishes you might find if you were in Rio de Janeiro or Sao Paulo. On a wintry Sunday afternoon when the waitress can’t talk because she’s been yelling at the Richmond players (her boyfriend barracks for Richmond; she, like most of this area, follows Collingwood), the restaurant is cheerful and bright with lots of diners. The décor is unassuming with vertical partitions separating the lounge – with its salon chairs, comfy leather ottomans and communal table at the front – from the restaurant.

review\ cheQUes & BaLaNces

Managing your investments “don’t put all The caTchphrase your eggs in one basket” can apply to so many areas of our lives, and

investing is no different. As time-poor women, we often rely on one solution to fix a problem. Setting up a high-interest ING bank account and transferring money on a regular basis might be simple to do and give you peace of mind, but on its own it is unlikely to create wealth or build an adequate retirement nest egg. Following the dream of home ownership and putting all your spare cash into the mortgage can leave you asset-rich but cash-poor. Business owners, particularly small-business owners (many of whom are women), often have all their savings and their income tied up in the business. This can seem less risky as they have control over the business, but if it goes belly-up they stand to lose everything. However, if you diversify your investments, you are more likely to have an asset portfolio that provides you with some income and/or liquidity (assets that are easily turned into cash) as well as capital-growth assets. Diversification of investments basically means spreading the risk. Generally, no two investments perform the same way; therefore, while one asset class might perform badly, the other might be providing good returns. There are four main asset classes in which to invest: cash; property; shares; and fixed-interest securities (generally government bonds). Cash and fixed-interest securities are considered relatively low-risk, so the

returns are low too. Shares and property might deliver greater returns but also carry increased risk. If you have the time and the money, you can invest directly in each of the asset classes yourself. If, like most of us, the thought is overwhelming, then it is possible to diversify your investment portfolio and lower your level of risk by investing in managed investment funds. To do this, you buy units in the managed fund and your funds are pooled with other investors’ and invested in shares or other assets by the fund’s investment manager. The fund owns the actual shares and assets. The price you pay for a unit in a managed fund is expected to increase over time, thus giving you capital growth on your investment (as with any investment, there is also the risk that the unit price could go down). If the fund buys dividend-paying investments you can also expect to receive income distributions from it. These distributions will be subject to income tax. Managed investment funds can specialise and invest in one asset class or might invest in a mixture of assets, depending on their mandate. This allows you to invest across a range of asset classes and industries within those classes without having to make the individual investment decisions yourself. You pay a management fee for the service. Basically, the work is done for you. One of the other major benefits of managed investment funds is that you can start investing with as little as $1000 upfront and make regular contributions that suit your cash flow. Remember, investing a little

over a long period of time can make a big difference. However, there are risks involved, because managed investment funds are only as good as their underlying investments. As you have no control over those investment decisions, you need to properly research the manager of the fund to make sure the investment mandate suits your risk levels and goals. The fee structure can also vary widely from fund to fund. Some charge a number of fees on top of the management fee, so make sure you read the fine print to understand the total cost of the managed fund. There are more than 10,000 managed investment funds available in Australia, so you need to seek the help of a financial planner or dedicate time to educating yourself and researching funds. A good place to start is www.morningstar.com.au, which provides investment portfolio information and gives an independent rating. The amount of diversification you put into your investment portfolio depends on what your goals are and what level of risk you are prepared to tolerate. It all depends on your personal circumstances. While the dream of owning your own home has its benefits, it needs to be accompanied by investment in income-producing assets to ensure you don’t spend your working life paying off your home loan, only to find you need a reverse mortgage in retirement just to live. \

REVIEW\ FASHION

An unexpected direction took some unusual turns MEN’S WEAR in Milan and Paris during the showcasing of spring/summer 2011 fashion week.

K ENZO

Z-ZEGN A MIL A N

Certainly there were your staples of suits and shirts perfect for office wear and casual weekend frivolities, but there were also a lot of new trends that had many fashion editors wondering who would adopt such risqué statements. Sure they look great on the buff models prancing down the catwalk, but will the average guy feel as comfortable wearing meggings, crop tops and see-through shirts? But where would fashion be without promoting the unwearable? Standing proud for spring/summer is the gutsy edginess of Lanvin’s men’s wear collection. Loaded with ragged seams and rough edges, the French brand found solace in biker influences in its tailoring (think Marlon Brando style), but equally important was its choice of colours – reminiscent of Mediterranean deep-sea blue and honey caramels. Put together by Lucas Ossendrijver and Alber Elbaz, the pieces pushed men’s wear to new territory with a strong 1950s theme – think tapered trousers that finish short in length and sandals for a relaxed touch. The range was wearable and slick. We couldn’t resist the impressive Italian fashion house Zegna. Through its Z-Zegna collection for spring/ summer 2011, a youthful persona was channelled – narrow tailoring, sharp shoulders, subtle see-through fabrics and an abundance of breezy colour including linens in shimmering silver, warm terracotta, clay and orange for extra zest. Spring and summer is all about an earthy realism for Z-Zegna – the rule of thumb is skinny leg pants,

There is always a nod to the traditional navy – beautiful double-breasted pea coat-style jackets for summer teamed with white pants for a sailor twist would be just the thing for a cruise-bound holiday. Quirky British designer Paul Smith felt right at home with a rock’n’roll story to tell with his spring picks for 2011. His collection was all about finding comfort in threads that suited men who have regular hangovers and come out the other end of a hard night on the town. He did, after all, cut his teeth hawking T-shirts at concerts by the Rolling Stones, so there’s an element of bringing out the beast within when you really study his range. We like the fitted black jeans and casual black blazer with a new romantic tailoring – the ruffled shirt that sits underneath the blazer would easily fit the look of any band member from the Strokes or Phoenix or, heck, even Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. For those men channelling a more sensitive side, Kenzo’s range is delightful, with all its artistry saluting berets, stripes and espadrilles. The soft, casual tailoring of its collection allows room for checks, florals and buxom colours such as red, parrot green and pink coral. The emphasis is on breathy fabrics and delicate detailing, which fits best with summer cocktails and dusky sunsets. Now back to those quirky additions we spotted on the runway. Calvin Klein opted to show off the abs with crop tops, while Emporio Armani introduced meggings – men’s leggings worn under shorts. Etro showcased sheer see-through fabrics in lace, the transparent image reminiscent of the ’80s, Don Johnson and Miami Vice. \

Yesteryear’s movie stars had it best and this season groomed brows are back in. The best, quickest, easiest and safest way to swish brows is to park your tushi in a brow specialist’s chair. He or she will trim, thread, wax and pluck your arches to suit your face. After this initial prepping you can control your brows yourself. Think of it as going to the dentist for a thorough clean every four to six months. But if being adventurous is your forte, here are a few home tips to keep your brows pitch perfect. Take a good look at your face in natural light. Use a magnifying mirror for accuracy and focus. Use a soft white eyeliner to draw the brow shape you like; every hair that falls outside this “white’’ brow is to be removed. The shape of the brow should have a slight arch tapering towards the end. Always pluck after a hot shower or give the brow area a hot compress; that way it “loosens’’ the follicles. Use a cotton swab doused in some astringent to settle and sanitise the area and do not forget to clean your tweezers too. Use a sharp tweezer to begin (tweezers are the easiest option for home groomers). Tweeze hair following its natural hair growth never against it, tweezing against hair growth and digging (however tempting) will result in ingrown hair and infection. Check your handiwork and keep in mind less is definitely more and brows should look complimentary not identical. Ice the freshly tweezed area to reduce redness and swelling.

10 STEPS TO PERFECT BROWS: Fill in gaps; define shape; groom and set 1. Use a pencil, pomade or powder at least one shade lighter than your brow colour. 2. If your brows are fair you should fill them in with a colour than is one shade darker than your natural hair. 3. Stand close to a mirror and look at your brows for any ‘bald spots’. Yep, you heard me right! 4. Fill in these bare patches with a soft pencil, pomade or cream using short light strokes following the hair growth. 5. If using powder dip a hard bristled angle brush into colour and go over brows with small, light flicks toward the temples. Pay close attention to the inner section of the brow and the arch area. 6. To soften and blend the colour run a spooley brush once through the brows. 7. Drag the wand of a brow gel against the mouth of the tube to clean the brush. Groom brows up and out toward the temples. 8. If you apply too much pencil or pomade remove the excess by combing the brows lightly with a clean spooley brush. 9. For full brows keep the hair in place with a coloured eyebrow wax or clear mascara. 10. A brow brush sparingly dipped in some petroleum jelly will also do the trick. \ askdhav@gmail.com

REVIEW\ IN THE FRAME

photographer Bill JUST RECENTLY,  Henson gave a talk at the launch of the Melbourne Art Fair, and his address was followed by the inevitable potshots. People are still riled over the man, with Henson and his supporters claiming the high moral ground, as do his critics. Crucial to the debate are two concepts: pornography and morality. Both have been debated for thousands of years. When most people now hear the word pornography, it is photography (still or motion) that springs to mind. But as still photography has been around for only 170 years or so, for most of those millennia pornography meant writing about sex. This sort of literary production has never been considered edifying by authorities and others who do their best to protect the rest of us from ourselves. The consequences of letting the public loose on stuff by the likes of D.H. Lawrence or James Joyce were deemed so dire that widespread censorship was assured, often along with farcical trials. Toleration of material considered indecent varies over time. Plays of Shakespeare, fit for performance before Queen Elizabeth I, were notoriously cleaned up with “judicious expurgation” by Thomas and Harriet Bowdler. The Bard’s unexpurgated works apparently were too corrupting for women and children of the day. The family was felt to be under threat, and in many instances it was – but not by naughty words. During the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Britain went through

distrusted art and artists. He mostly had poets in mind, but what we now call the visual arts got a caning as well, because he thought that, by tapping into our emotions, by telling us stories, they led us away from reason and truth. Plato thought his ideal republic would be better off if artists were simply banished. One of the metaphors Plato used to rail against art and illusion is known as the “prisoners in the cave”, where people mistake shadows cast onto a wall as “reality”. In the 1970s Susan Sontag, herself deeply ambivalent over photography’s power and purpose, resuscitated Plato’s image. Sontag thought photography as much a curse as a gift, making voyeurs of us all. In this era of technological tumult, of internet porn and sexting and the nightly news, Henson’s work reminds us that Sontag’s view is anything but abstract, even while we are caught between the pulses of our bodies and the fates. \

Controversial: Photographer Bill Henson’s work often leads to debates.

St

Stills run deep

social upheaval. Thousands were turned off ancestral lands by a series of Enclosure Acts and poured into London and the factory towns springing up over the country. To be a worker was, for most, to be desperately poor. For the poorest of all, there was the workhouse. Around the time of Queen Victoria’s coronation, there were an estimated 40,000 prostitutes in London alone, many of them barely in their teens. Victoria’s subjects set about remedying this state of affairs with moral outrage coded into manners and the law. While the statutes changed relatively slowly, manners leapt ahead – often absurdly so, as with the decorous covering of piano legs and the like. In many ways we are still living with the consequences of Victorian rectitude and its notions of prurience. It could be argued that society as a whole has not yet arrived at a healthy, proportioned view of sex and sexuality. Enjoying a standard of living that our forebears could only dream of, we are still haunted by their nightmares. Plague and famine still shadow us, and we’ve got some new terrors, such as pollution and nuclear annihilation. Among all this, Henson has the temerity to present his images of pubescent youth, naked like the first men and women in our creation stories. The world they inhabit is invariably dark, perhaps sinister; they have the appearance of sleepwalkers, drifting toward fate. We have good reason to find these images disturbing, despite and because of their beauty. They address questions of the soul. Over the past couple of years I’ve witnessed several … well, animated exchanges between friends, pro and anti-Henson, with the supposed intrinsic worth of art at their core. Debates such as this go back a long way. Plato – yep, he of platonic love fame – intensely


REVIEW\ OPERA Greta Bradman’s love of music came from her family, especially her piano-playing grandpa, writes JANE ROCCA.

S

THE GRANDDAUGHTER OF AN ICON

BRADMAN

OF THE OPERA

he may be the granddaughter of cricketing great Sir Donald Bradman, but for 31-year-old soprano Greta Bradman, memories of her famous grandpa mostly revolve around the piano at his home in Holden Street, Kensington Park, a suburb of Adelaide. “Grandpa would always be on the piano any opportunity he could get,” recalls Bradman who recently moved to Melbourne from Adelaide with her husband, Didier Elzinga, and children Jude, 3, and Casper, six months. “Although the Bradman name is associated with cricket, for me it’s more than that. I come from a musical family and it’s something that has remained strong with me all of my life,” she says. Bradman remembers visiting her grandparents after school with her brother, Tom, and eating dinner with them most nights. Instead of plonking themselves in front of the television (as most kids find themselves doing these days), they would walk into the house to find grandpa sitting at the piano playing songs from memory while his wife, Jessie (Lady Bradman or Lulla as she was referred to by Greta), would whistle her way around the house and join in the festive spirit. The Don, as he was affectionately known, loved American composer George Gershwin and made sure his granddaughter appreciated the composer’s popular melodies. It was these childhood memories that had such an impact on Greta Bradman that as a teenager she became more drawn to classical music than to pop music. “I really cherish those moments and realise that’s where the love of music stems from, and the fact that my father was a jazz singer too,” says Bradman. “My mum’s father loved opera and even though he had stage fright, he used to sing at his house all the time for us. There really was no escape from music in my childhood.” Sir Donald died on February 25, 2001, aged 92. While he is recognised as an Australian sporting icon and the world’s best batsmen, for his granddaughter, there was more to him than sport and statistics. “A lot of people know my grandpa better for his cricketing achievements but for me it was grandpa the piano player, grandpa the music lover, grandpa the song lover. He was full of life when it came to music and we enjoyed it together right up until the end.” Her grandmother, Lady Bradman died from cancer in 1997, aged 88. In an attempt to raise her profile as a singer, Greta Bradman recently sang at the MCG before the Queen’s Birthday match between Collingwood and Melbourne, while earlier this year she performed with the Australian String Quartet. She has slowly come out of her private shell to embrace the stage and take her music to the masses. It’s all the obvious grooming a record label arranges when there’s a debut album on the way. Forest of Dreams is Bradman’s first with Sony Music and says motherhood inspired the recording. It features 16 lullabies sung by Bradman and arranged by celebrated producer John Foreman. While her audience is primarily young children, Bradman hopes adults will also enjoy the music. “When my son, Jude, was born I searched everywhere for a CD that I could play him. All I could find was


instrumentals, but I had other ideas of what I was after,” she says. “When I couldn’t find the album I had in my mind, I decided to make it myself.” Bradman’s selection for the album included classical favourites including lullabies by Brahms and Gotter and others made famous by the likes of Simon and Garfunkel and Peter, Paul and Mary. She also has a go at reinterpreting modern pop standards by Creed and Billy Joel. Sony Australia’s CEO, Dennis Handlin, fell in love with the idea and gave Bradman the go-ahead. “I really wanted to create something for kids. I found something like 700 lullabies but made a more feasible shortlist of around 30. I was discovering a lot of lost gems, like the Spanish one on the album Con Amores, la Mi Madre. I also couldn’t go past Billy Joel’s Lullaby (Goodnight My Angel) and as a little girl I grew up listening to Peter, Paul and Mary and had to include Hush-A-Bye (All the Pretty Little Horses).” When driving around Melbourne with the kids, Bradman’s eldest, Jude, always asks mum to put Forest of Dreams on the CD player. He is the one, after all, who has tried and tested all of the songs in the lead-up to them being released. “You know what’s funny is that Jude is so used to mummy’s voice he sometimes says you’re hurting my ears with that voice,” says Bradman laughing. “But since the album has been recorded I find he loves

having it on in the car, particularly when he is coming home from kinder. He wants to hear it and it puts him in a nice peaceful space. Casper is only six months, but he’s exposed to it as well. I find they both mellow when it’s playing.” The wisdom of releasing her debut album while busy caring for two small children crossed Bradman’s mind, but she also knew that ignoring her desire to get the music out there was not a healthy option. To add to her already busy workload, she is undertaking her PhD in clinical psychology and says multitasking is her forte. “I am not going to lie to you; it has not been an easy task,” says Bradman of juggling motherhood, career and education. “It’s been difficult doing them all but family is always the number one priority and everything else I desire has to work around that,” she says. “Having children changed my life. It made me realise the importance of music and how I needed that to run a household, raise a family and have happy children.” Bradman has almost completed a joint master’s degree in clinical psychology and a research PhD in human intelligence at the University of Adelaide. It has been part of the reason she wanted to make an album of lullabies for children – to combine her academic research with her skills as a soprano. “I am no stranger to research,” she says smirking. “I have been learning about the developmental benefits of listening to classical music at a young age and how it sets children up to do better later in life. “My PhD is very much about the physical and psychological long-term health of the population and how music can be used as another means of therapy. Psychology is one way to assist people, but music is just as valid. It’s just as much a force for healing.” It was during her mid-20s that Bradman began to experience success in classical music. She was a

founding member of the award-winning Eve Vocal Trio and Adelaide Chamber Singers and was resident vocalist for The Firm’s concert series for the past four years. She was also a guest soloist with ensembles and choirs including the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, Adelaide Chamber Players, Adelaide Baroque, the Kegelstatt Ensemble, Soundstream New Music Ensemble, Syzygy, the Adelaide Philharmonia Chorus, Syntony, Graduate Singers and Cantamus to name quite a few. “Music is about touching people, about expressing true emotion,” says Bradman. “And it’s the same in clinical psychology. You have to give of yourself, you have to be genuine and truly empathise. It has to be sincere, it has to be true, and it has to come from a place of who you really are.” Bradman is bright and ambitious, and she’s found a way to channel both. Her achievements speak volumes of a woman who has made sure she’s never missed an opportunity or given up on chasing a dream.

W

hen you first see Bradman, you’d think she was much younger than 31. She is petite and pixie-like – but underneath the slight frame is a woman who knows what she wants. She is a timely reminder that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. She admits that motherhood has helped her become more confident and also helped clarify in her mind that music is her healing stone. While Forest of Dreams pitches itself as an instant calmer for infants and children, it also keeps Bradman grounded and is a much-needed soothing source in her own life. While all of the songs on the album hold a special memory for Bradman, there are a few that take on an extra special quality. She has dedicated Summertime to her mother and father and recalls listening to it when she was growing up, but instead of the jazzy and operatic versions she embraced as a child, she’s gone for a more gentle rendition. Then there’s Scarborough Fair – a song she sang many times as a child and that brings back vivid images from that time. “I remember singing it with my dad and Lulla. My grandma would be whistling it under her breath as she moved about her house. It has some very special memories for me and I love the tune. I grew up listening to Simon and Garfunkel’s version too and always enjoyed it.” It has only been a few months since Bradman settled in Melbourne, admitting the move was to assist in advancing her music career. “There is just a lot more happening in Melbourne than Adelaide,” she says. “I do miss Adelaide because it is where friends and family are, but I was ready for this change.” Out of nowhere she reveals she’s never had a real job and feels she has to explain. But it’s easy to see that Bradman has been busy leaving an indelible mark on the classical music scene, building a following of earnest fans and earning a reputation as a soprano with a bright future. “I have never really had a proper job, so to speak,” she says. “But I have come to the realisation that it is not the job, in inverted commas, that makes you a better person. “It’s important to be doing something that you love, something that makes you feel whole. You can’t beat yourself up thinking you should be doing something else with your life. I never started out in music to make a career of it, but as the years have moved on I feel a desire to want to give that a go. “In order for me to be happy I need it permanently in my life.” \

Review\ Reflections

For people new to the dating scene, the HIV numbers are relevant, writes clAIRE HAllIDAy.

at her girlfriend’s house, during a party. She remembers that American Pie by Don McLean was playing in the background. The man was carrying condoms and it was his idea to wear one. She’d said “yes” because she was only a few years into the workforce after her teaching degree and she didn’t want to have a baby. She never slept with him again. A few months later, when she met the man who would become her husband, he also had condoms, but after a while they didn’t bother with them because she went on the pill. “That’s what everyone did,” Helen, 63, says. “It wasn’t about avoiding diseases, it was about making sure you didn’t get pregnant.” After the wedding, two years later, she did have a couple of children – Helen used an intrauterine device (IUD) in between – and, eventually, she convinced her husband to have the snip and didn’t have to think about sexual protection again. But now, after 37 years, Helen’s children are long grown up, and her husband has left, too. He said it was just because he didn’t love her any more, but she found out later that he had been seeing someone else – an affair started while they were still together, taking turns to wheel the rubbish bins onto the street each Tuesday night, her thinking that they would keep growing old together. At first she didn’t think about having sex with anyone else, but it has been 16 months now and she thinks she’s ready. Lonely. Just wants to feel someone touch her. She’s been online, checking out the dating sites, and she’s not sure where to start. At least she doesn’t have to worry about pregnancy any more. But there’s so much more. Helen has read the statistics – that incidences of sexually transmitted infections (STI) are on the rise throughout the country. She doesn’t want to become part of them. According to Kerrilie Rice, chief executive officer at Positive Women Victoria – an organisation that offers support and advocacy for women living with HIV/AIDS – women such as Helen are a very real part of HIV statistics in Victoria. Since 1999, 5947 people were diagnosed with HIV in Victoria. Of these, 436 (7.3 per cent) were women.* While Rice says that many of the 63 new members to join Positive Women Victoria in the past five years are younger women from diverse cultural backgrounds, older Anglo-Saxon women going through separation or divorce who may be less confident about negotiating safe sex and have less knowledge about HIV and testing, have also been identified as a risk group. The number of new HIV diagnosis in Australia increased by 38 per cent over the past 10 years. At the end of 2008 there were 28,330 people who had been diagnosed with HIV, 2464 (8.7 per cent) of whom were women. Between 1999 and 2008, HIV transmission by heterosexual contact had increased by 32 per cent (22 per cent for women). In a similar period, from 1999-2007, chlamydia

infections rose from 2000 a year to more than 11,000, with chlamydia rates in Melbourne sexual-health clinics reportedly rising from 4.2 per cent in 2003 to 6.7 per cent in 2007. For Helen, newly divorced and on the edge of the single’s dating scene, they are numbers that are suddenly relevant. I tell her, too, about syphilis – the way it has increased in Victoria from 50 cases in 2001 to 400 in 2007. I tell her that I have read, in more than one place, the theory that this spike in reported STIs has a link with the events of September 11 (2001), and that the dramatic fall in sexually transmitted infections, circa 1990s, that came as a result of the fear campaign spearheaded by Siimon Reynolds’ Grim Reaper ad campaign was undone even more deftly a decade later by the global, grief-inspired live-for-the-day mentality. With a future that seemed so shakily uncertain in those first shocked days after the Twin Towers fell, and the deaths in Bali on October 12, 2002, sexual promiscuity, it seems, was some sort of damp, sticky Band-Aid. If it’s true, Helen didn’t notice at ther time. She was still married then. Happy. To her, the terrorist attacks were something to worry about but when she fell into bed with her husband in the small hours of that morning, dulled by too many news reports and footage she couldn’t quite believe, and they made love together, it was out of some need to be comforted by some mundane familiarity. Not because she expected the sex would take her one step closer to her own carefree death. But now she’s not married, and she’s not particularly happy, either, and what she resents almost as much as the formality of divorce and the way the vows she made in good faith seem so silly now is the fact that she has to now learn to charter these murky waters of lust and love. It’s bad enough, she says, that companionship has become something to shop for online, like some experiential novelty gift. She doesn’t want to think about diseases as well. But, according to a recent survey published in a US journal of 600 women who used online dating services, it is something women such as Helen should think about more. The survey showed that up to a third of women who meet men through online dating sites are having sex on the first date, with 70 per cent not using condoms. Blame the lulling of perceived knowledge that comes from nights (and often weeks or months) spent communicating online. I tell Helen that things may get even more dangerous and that she really should take care. With online dating site RSVP reporting earlier this year of a boost in membership of over-50s, and the Council on the Ageing spokeswoman Anne-Marie Elias calling for safe-sex workshops and guideline policies to be implemented into aged-care and retirement facilities – to help staff deal with promiscuous behaviour among the Viagra-driven elderly who missed out on the safe-sex education of subsequent generations – she is about to enter an unknown world. Helen didn’t expect to be on her way there at this stage of her life. She thinks this each week when she trawls the two online sites she has signed up to, looking for that man who says more about friendship than fornication. And she thinks it, especially, on Tuesdays, when she wheels the rubbish bins out by herself. \

he refrigerated van Andrew Blake hired for the first delivery to his new restaurant on Mount Hotham in 2005 was a disastrous six hours late. It had no hydraulic tailgate to ease unloading and the 1.5 tonnes of produce and equipment it contained had to be lugged by hand through the snow. Blake, who also runs Blakes Feast Catering, based in Glen Iris, admits he and his winter team learnt some tough lessons when they took over the Zirky’s bistro, café and fine-dining restaurant complex on the mountain. “We knew things wouldn’t be easy as soon as we saw how small the kitchen was. It had 10 gas jets operating on bottled gas, which we knew would struggle with as soon as we put a stockpot on,” Blake said. Five years later, he says: “We’ve got it all down pat now, with our menus and suppliers. We use as much regional produce as possible, including wines, and have a fruit-and-vegetable supplier down the mountain. But we make all our soups, sauces, braises and things like shanks in our kitchens in Melbourne. We vacuum-pack them and bring them to the mountain in our own refrigerated van. The vacuum packing works well. It not only extends the shelf life of the food but it streamlines our operations and allows us to control quality. Last year we offered a crayfish laksa. Staff in the kitchen (on the mountain) just had to cut the bag open and gently warm the crayfish.” Fine dining in the snow is a glamorous part of the après-skiing activities for the hordes who enjoy Victoria’s ski fields each season, but the challenges for the chefs and managers catering for fluctuating crowd volumes in the unpredictable and erratic short snow season go unnoticed by diners who demand, and pay for, city-quality meals. In early May this year, Victoria’s first snowfalls were reported at Mount Buller, Mount Baw Baw, Mount Hotham and Falls Creek. As the cold weather arrived early, hopes were high for a bumper season. But by late July things were looking grim as resorts across the state awaited a cold snap. Patchy natural ski runs and reduced occupancy rates were obvious and modern snowmaking equipment worked overtime. When snow fell again in the first week of August,

the relief was palpable and the ski resort’s websites rang with the news. “Some seasons are more difficult than others. In a good snow season there are plenty of pre-season bookings, but when there’s no snow, occupancy rates drop,” Blake says. He and fellow restaurateurs “pray for blizzards” – then occupancy rates are high and people are forced indoors. A $1.7-million investment in snowmaking equipment at Mount Hotham this season has been a huge help for businesses on the mountain, says Blake. Being at the mercy of the weather, juggling a transient workforce and even huge gas bills are other challenges faced by restaurant owners on the snowfields. Seasonal incomes have to be balanced out by business operations at other times of the year, too. Then there’s the difficult decision for the chefs to use local produce or not, and even the balance of getting the mood and atmosphere right for such a diverse, demanding audience. At Falls Creek, Simon Rawlings, who has owned Summit Ridge Restaurant for 10 years, has striven to create an informal atmosphere. Summit Ridge won the 2010 Restaurant and Catering Excellence Awards’ regional informal dining category and lists a swag of other food and wine awards on its website. Rawlings eschews the term “fine dining”. “Our food does have lots of components and it’s quite ‘worked’,” he says, “And, yes, we are about great service, great wine and great food, but we want it to be a casual, relaxed experience, too. “We took off the white tablecloths a few years ago, but we still use quality stemware and expensive linen napkins. We recognise that we are in the snow and people are on holidays. We want them to come in dressed as they are and be comfortable.” Rawlings has solved the seasonal income and staff transience problem by also running a restaurant operation in Japan. This means he is able to employ his kitchen team full time. He is a strong advocate for using local produce, both in Japan and at Falls Creek.

The Summit Ridge menu features a full-page dedication to its local suppliers – the poultry is free range from Milawa, chestnuts are sourced from Wandiligong, Buffalo River and Stanley, and the Morrison Street Continental Butchery in Wodonga provides beef, lamb and pork sourced from the alpine valleys. “We know most of our growers and know our beef from paddock to plate; we use local oil and butter. We source very little of our ingredients from Melbourne but, having said that, we will look elsewhere when the local quality is not up to scratch,” says Rawlings. It’s a different story for Jack Frost’s chef Kurt Adam (ex-Home Dining Room and Auction Rooms), at Mount Hotham. As a former Melbourne chef, he staunchly prefers to source his produce from trusted Melbourne suppliers for the popular gastronomic pub. “The biggest challenge for me is not being able to get hold of something I could source in Melbourne. Up here, I order twice a week. In Melbourne, I would go to the market myself and see what was in season and what looked good. Here, it just turns up on my doorstep and I have no control over the quality.” In his second season as head chef at Mount Buller’s Snow Pony, Anthony D’Augello (ex-Grossi Florentino, Mirka at Tolarno and Mecca) uses local produce where possible, but factors freight costs into the equation. Mount Buller is closer to Melbourne and his Italian-focused restaurant is able to import products and transport them to the mountain. But the difficulty at a resort closer to the city is that when the snow does fall, restaurant bookings “go crazy”. “We can only seat 50 people at a time in two sittings a night,” D’Augello says. “So when the snow falls, people want to come up, and we have to set up waiting lists for diners.” In another nice seasonal balance, the Snow Pony team will run the newly renovated Sandbar Beach Café and restaurant in St Kilda during the summer. \

Ski-licious options MoUnt BULLeR

Snow Pony Summit Road \ 5777 6010 Snow Pony’s seductive, evocative “cave-like” restaurant and bar is a welcome retreat from the busy Bourke Street ski run. Its interior combines traditional chalet elements with a mix of recycled timber, log walls, a dark marble bar and a massive log fire. Chef Anthony d’Augello’s simple menu has a strong Italian focus. Breakfast includes a range of egg dishes and a selection of pastries. At lunch, main-course options such as fettuccine with lobster and cream sauce are hearty, with generous lobster pieces, while dishes such as the filling and tasty risotto with meatballs will appeal to younger diners. Dinner options include unfussy choices such as pasta fagioli, a Tuscan bean and vegetable soup, rigatoni alla matriciana (with pancetta) and spaghetti with meatballs. Snacks include croque monsieur, chicken parmigiana and steak sandwiches. Snow Pony sits between a casual café and the more fine-dining options on the mountain. Welcoming and seating efficiency can be lacking in busy times but service on the whole is pleasant. Small tastes $8-$18; mains $18-$44. \

Wide windows that capture the winter scenery outside and a bustling open kitchen within ensure visual appetites are sated. Chef James Webb takes care of the real hunger, using an impressive selection of quality local ingredients. Attractively presented dishes are generous and flavours have been carefully considered. A delicate piece of Stoney Creek smoked trout is the perfect partner for its herbed crème fraiche topping and its fennel, spring onion and apple accompaniment. Mains include roasted Gippsland lamb rump with a luscious white-bean puree and Kiewa Valley aged beef with wild mushrooms and a gossamer-textured mustard spaetzle.

SUMMit Ridge 8 ScHuSS StReet \ 5758 3800 Classic “ski lodge” décor, from the stone-hearthed open fireplace to the ceiling-high timber racks that hold bottles of the 250-strong award-winning wine list, set the scene for relaxed dining at Summit Ridge. Chef Michael Newby’s refined and innovative menu makes the most of the region’s produce. Well-executed entrees include a stunning chestnut and parsnip soup and house-made linguini with pine mushrooms, green olive tapenade and truffled sheep’s cheese. Mains are carefully balanced flavour experiences, and a pork loin, pork belly and bean hash combination is enhanced by its apple puree and an apple and chervil salad. The perfectly cooked Milawa duck breast partners well with its artichoke, winter pear and purple mustard accompaniments. Overzealous service, such as dishes delivered too closely together, can mar the experience. But desserts, such as toasted marshmallow with citrus curd, expertly matched to wines, are the lasting memories. Entrees $17-22; mains $36-$40. \ LT

White box lights on one corner of the ceiling and glass display cases, featuring local snowgum leaves, are prettily reflected by the crystal curtain of snow outside. Chef Pablo de Pasquale’s menu features Spanish tapas-style dishes and European-influenced cuisine. His charcuterie platter is a generous, quality selection of meats such as spec (cured and smoked pork belly), lachsschinken (rolled pork loin) and serrano ham. Mains include choices such as linguini con gambas, green prawns with Napoli sauce, a blue-cheese risotto with a rocket, apple and walnut salad and twice-cooked duck with Moorish spices and a quince glaze. Flavours are simple and well considered, service staff possess varied levels of experience and polish, but the wine and cocktail lists are impressive.

BLAKES AT ZIRKY’S GREAT ALPINE ROAD, HOTHAM CENTRAL \ 5759 3518 Upholstered banquettes, crisp white tablecloths and low ceilings create a cosseting, noise-proof bunker atmosphere at Blakes at Zirky’s. This five-year-old formal dining space, operated by Andrew Blake (ex-Blakes, Stella, now Blakes Feast Catering) is attached to a daytime café and the all-day bistro but seems a world away from either. The well-trained, efficient staff keeps the food moving at just the right pace. Entrees include dishes such as seared scallops with a salad of shaved fennel, pork, orange and pomegranate, and crisp, snappily spiced Kentucky-fried quail on Vietnamese “slaw”. Beautifully presented mains include choices such as a generous bay snapper and mussel pie with saffron mashed potato, and roast duck with porcini tortellini and a black pepper sauce. The hot blueberry soufflé with white chocolate ice-cream is a standout dessert and appeals to diners of all ages. Entrees $21-$25; mains $42-$58. \ LT

JACK FROST GREAT ALPINE ROAD \ 5759 3586 Jack Frost’s owner, Adam Ashley, took over the popular pub two seasons ago after working on the mountain for 21 years, and brought in his own team to run the kitchen. The rustic décor, live music from Thursday to Sunday nights, entertainment and genial atmosphere ensure there’s always a crowd. Chef Kurt Adam arrived on the mountain this season offering inspiring sharing dishes such as lamb and manchego meatballs with smoky tomato gravy and ras el hanout-spiced prawns with baba ganoush, ruby grapefruit and greens. His hearty main-course offerings, from simple quality chicken parmigiana to winter warmers such as lamb-shank ragu, with potato gnocchi and gremolata, or duck with kipfler potatoes, bacon and cherry jus, appeal to mountain staff and visitors alike. Share plates $7-$16; mains $22-$33. \ LT

TSUBO BIG MUSTER DRIVE \ 5159 6622 Tucked beside the luxurious Onsen Retreat and Spa, Tsubo is a neat fit for the oriental-influenced pamper-focused venue. Stylish décor with a strong Japanese influence – sunken seating, timber floors and ceiling, low lighting and parchment screens – sets the scene for the fusion cuisine to follow. Chef Hamish Nugent’s dishes are designed for sharing and probably best appreciated as part of the $65 or $85 “feed me” banquets. There are crowd-pleasers such as crumbed calamari with Japanese mayo, or tatsuta-age (soy marinated fried chicken pieces) and more unusual, but less-successful, combinations such as okonomiyaki (a pancake with squid and cabbage) or lamb backstrap with sausage, lentils, tomato chutney and beetroot.

MOUNT HOTHAM

“It’s been a big job and it’s not even halfway finished, but Rome wasn’t built in a day,” says Joshua Maude, head chef at Village Central, Mount Baw Baw, of his plans to improve the mountain’s food offerings. The drive to Baw Baw from Melbourne (allow three hours) includes, according to locals, the most steeply ascending stretch of road in Victoria. Maude has also faced some serious uphill battles introducing his new menu. “When I started it was pretty much pub food,” he says. “This place needs to step up and the Alpine pub (across the road) needs to move with it to get in line with the Hothams and the Bullers. We’re in the process of creating a local degustation menu of Gippsland produce that will include local wine, asparagus, cheese and native Australian fare like emu and crocodile as well as roo.” Maude’s present menu surprises and sometimes delights. He keeps the theme within an area of interest developed during his times in central Australia: native Australian. Considering a huge percentage of Mount Baw Baw’s day-trippers are foreign tourists, it will no doubt do very well. I tried the bush honey-glazed kangaroo, with a ragout of mushrooms and spinach, perched on a delicious, slightly crusted rosti of Maffra cheddar cheese and sweet potato. The starter of prawn fritters served with rocket and chili jam was a little heavy on the onion but the fluffy consistency of the fritters balanced beautifully with the jam’s piquancy. Other signature dishes include chicken mousalini roulade and favourites such as rack of lamb. Mount Baw Baw is Victoria’s most affordable ski resort (especially for snowboarders, who will dig the terrain park) and the food does not break rank. “We’re pretty limited with ingredients but next season that’s going to change,” Maude says. “There’ll be more local cuts of meat as well as local truffles, which are better than any I’ve ever had from Tassie.” \ ANDREW McUTCHEN


Review\ gaRdening A pair of faded doors from a faraway land continue to collect life’s stories in a suburban Melbourne garden, writes JudIth hughes.

If these doors could talk

ear to where I live is a shop I must warn you about. Trust me when I say there is nothing in Cumquat Interiors that you need. Don’t go there. Although the owners, Val and Wendy, are terrific fun and have a good eye for intriguing objects d’art, I have assiduously avoided dropping in. I nevertheless broke my self-imposed exile recently because I was curious to know whether customers ever bought items there to incorporate into their gardens. That is how I found Tracey Steedman and her fabulous antique Chinese doors. Like many clients of Wendy and Val, Tracey had wandered in for a browse, only to discover something she simply had to have. This was not a “should I or shouldn’t I” moment but rather a “now, how will I use them” one. It is one thing to fall in love with a large pair of archaic doors but quite another to find a way of accommodating them in an East Malvern backyard. Tracey is an ideas person and is currently studying at the International School of Colour and Design, so it wasn’t long before she came up with a concept. The back garden she has produced with husband Peter is Balinese in style, lush and verdant with a relaxed feel. Tracey had a builder create, on a bare exterior wall of the house, a platform and outdoor cupboard to which she attached her beautiful, decorative doors. Besides adding something character-laden and unique to the yard, the family now has a conveniently placed storage depot for sports and gardening equipment (and the odd possum seeking shelter). You won’t find a better-looking shed anywhere. The stories those weathered wooden doors could tell, with their intricately detailed steel plates and wonderfully heavy bolt and chain. Tracey loves the profusion of steel “bullets” which she feels contributes to the impression of strength and nobility projected by the heavy doors. The Steedmans designed their own garden, keeping only a tree fern and a lemon tree from the original. They wanted it to be sustainable and easy to maintain, in keeping with their family’s relaxed lifestyle. Hardy palms, ferns and exotic bird of paradise plants provide a lush tropical backdrop to the outdoor eating area. A pond with a water feature made from other finds and Egyptian papyrus bushes add a feeling of tranquility to the garden. The deck that runs the length of the family room has happily provided the two young Steedman boys with a built-in cricket pitch. The Washington robusta palm at one end is a little tattered as it serves as the stumps for Hugo and Archie. Tracey has achieved her goal of a practical garden that doubles as an outdoor room. Another of her lucky discoveries, a large rectangular wooden-framed mirror which once adorned the walls of a bank, is cleverly positioned behind the dining table to reflect and thereby bring all that greenery indoors. All in all, my return to Cumquat Interiors proved a worthwhile exercise although I wish now that I’d asked Tracey for some ideas about what I can do with the quaint Vietnamese fishing line I walked out with that day. \

REVIEW\ GARDENING just weeks away, it’s time to think about establishing a herb WITH SPRING  garden, either in pots or in a garden bed, preferably near the kitchen door.

A reader’s recent email, about moving into an apartment, highlighted the difficulty of maintaining a high-rise kitchen garden, but even a small balcony or windowsill can accommodate a few pots with culinary herbs as long as they get about five hours of sunlight a day. A north or north-east-facing balcony is ideal as it will receive the maximum amount of sun and herbs and veggies should thrive as long as they are sheltered. Wind can be a real problem for plants, even in low-rise buildings, and if you are near the bay, you should factor in salt damage too. If your area is windy, it is better to retreat indoors and have a few pots in an area that receives lots of light during the day. If you are planting in pots, be sure to have good drainage – pot feet are a must – and use the best potting mix available. Some potting mixes contain a slow-release fertiliser, otherwise you will have to feed your plants regularly with a liquid fertiliser. The wonderful pots of mixed herbs in the various garden centres are tempting but they can be hard to maintain once you get them home. Basil and parsley need more water than rosemary and thyme, which hate being overwatered. Mint loves lots of water and will take over the whole pot if you let it. Either go for a couple of big pots with groups of herbs that have the same water requirements or plant individual pots of herbs.

Here are a few herbs that are easy to grow and will make all the difference to your cooking when freshly picked: ROSEMARY (Rosmarinus officinalis)

A native of the Mediterranean, rosemary requires good drainage and good air circulation and will tolerate full sun or part shade. Some varieties grow to 1.5 metres, so be sure to ask for a smaller variety when buying a plant. Use flowers and foliage to flavor roasted meats and vegetables. THYME (Thymus vulgaris)

S A GE

Like rosemary, thyme is native to the Mediterranean and so enjoys lots of sunshine, hot, dry summers and good drainage. There are more than 350 different thymes, from lemon-scented to golden and variegated. Thymus vulgaris is the common thyme and is used in a wide range of cuisines.

SAGE (Salvia officinalis)

OREG A NO

Culinary sage belongs to the genus Salivia, a huge family of plants, many of which are planted for their brilliant flowers. Its slightly furry, grey leaves are popular as a meat and poultry seasoning. Sage is a sun-loving plant that should never be over-watered. OREGANO (Origanum)

Best known as the pizza herb, oregano is used in Greek, Italian and Mexican cooking. Like other Mediterranean herbs, it likes full sun, good drainage and not too much water. SWEET BASIL (Ocimum basilicum)

If you have room for just one pot of herbs, make it basil. It is a perfect match for tomatoes, makes the best pesto and will liven up a simple salad. Basil loves heat, so don’t plant it out until the temperatures are 20 degrees or more during the day. It can, however, be started indoors in a warm spot that gets a lot of light. Water regularly at the base – it does not like wet leaves. Pinch off the tops of shoots once the plant is about 15 centimetres tall to encourage it to bush.

B A SIL PA R S E LY

ITALIAN PARSLEY (Petroselinum neapolitanum)

Also know as flat-leaf or continental parsley, Italian parsley has a stronger flavour than the curled varieties, is more robust and easier to grow, as well as being productive for longer. It grows best in moist, well-drained soil and likes lots of sun. Parsley is ideal for garnishes and is used for flavouring in many cuisines.

CHI V E S

CHIVES (Allium schoenoprasum)

Related to onions and garlic, chives are perfect for growing in a pot, thriving in moist, well-drained soil. The fine, long leaves will form a clump 20-30 centimetres tall and, if left to flower, will produce attractive purple flowers. Chives are used in a variety of dishes from potato salad to Asian stir fries. \

y Eaglemont standards, this is a small block – about 600 square metres. However, the new house on it is anything but small. And for garden lovers, the landscaped front garden is brimming with densely planted mature gardenias and magnolias. They might have been planted yesterday but they look as though they have grown up with the house. With four bedrooms, formal and informal living rooms, a study and al fresco entertaining spaces, this house provides an Eaglemont address and lifestyle without the work. American oak double doors with custom-made wrought-iron inserts behind glass panels open to the entry hall. Interiors are predominantly neutral with timber floors, including parquetry in the entry foyer. Bathrooms have beige CaesarStone benchtops and co-ordinating tiles on walls and floors. The decorator has taken the notion of neutral interiors seriously, creating a warm ambience.

The wide entry hall has two rooms off it on either side – the study and the main. The bedroom has a sliding door to a large en suite with two basins and a frameless glass shower. The walk-in wardrobe next to the en suite is almost the size of the bathroom. Painted double doors open from the entry hall into the central part of the house. Open to the hall on the western side of the house, the lounge room has a gas open fireplace as a central feature. Glass french doors on either side of the fireplace open to a timber deck with dense plantings in the garden beside it. The rest of this part of the house includes the powder room and the carpeted staircase that leads to the first floor. Four timber steps with handrail go down to the full-width informal living area. At one end of this space is the kitchen; at the other is the living and television room; in the middle, set behind a bay window, is the dining area. The room is generous without being too big. Best of all, it faces north and opens to a timber al fresco deck.

The kitchen is large and airy with granite-topped benches, including an island bench. There are cupboards above and below the benches along the wall and a mocha-coloured glass splashback. A sliding door at one end of the kitchen opens into the butler’s pantry. The stove, a glossy black double Falcon Toledo oven and cooktop, is a serious piece of cooking equipment in the middle of the bench against the wall. Still in this part of the house, just past the kitchen proper, a built-in cabinet with glass-fronted doors provides more storage.

of the elevation of the site, there is no sense of being hemmed in. In fact, from the first floor there are extensive views over much of the Austin Hospital and, on a clear day, as far as the Kinglake Ranges. A wider-than-usual staircase, with mocha-toned carpet underfoot, leads to the first-floor retreat, which is flooded with natural light from the north-facing windows. Three upstairs bedrooms all have walk-in wardrobes; one has a two-way bathroom that is entered from a hall off the retreat. Another bathroom, with bath and shower, serves the other two bedrooms on this floor. The extras in this house include double glazing, insulation in floors, ceilings and walls, excellent storage, and data cabling to all rooms. While it might not be a traditional Eaglemont property, with the amount of building going on in the suburb, there could be more houses like this in the future. \

If there was a prize for the most intact and cutest “village” shopping centre, Eaglemont Village would surely be a contender. Its 25 shops are clustered on both sides of the one-way street next to Eaglemont station. The 1920s architecture and friendly, personalised service distinguish the shops. There is the post office, newsagent, butcher, fruit shop and small supermarket, liquor store, hairdresser, florist, antique shops, bookshop and café/coffee shop. Known as the Eaglemont Dish, this is a mecca for people craving a caffeine hit, an after-school sweet treat, lunch or takeaway dinner. Eaglemont is a difficult suburb to break into. Consistently among the most expensive suburbs in Melbourne, it is popular with professionals and families. Many of the blocks are steep but its greenery, attractive street plantings and leafy lanes are part of its appeal. Eaglemont appeals to garden lovers and has many large gardens. Its old-fashioned, often sprawling gardens planted with exotic European trees give it a distinctive atmosphere, as do the parks that back onto some of the houses. These parks mostly have species of eucalyptus, and one includes a “canoe” tree. The Mercy/Austin hospital complex is only a couple of minutes away. Eaglemont has two primary schools and two kindergartens.

How this suburb has moved: Median price down 5 per cent in the year to the June quarter 2010. *REIV stats.

This leads to the dining room, which isn’t just roomy – it’s handily serviced by a wet bar and is also next to the outdoor barbecue area for ease of access and distribution of piping-hot foodstuffs. Adjacent to this room is the rumpus room, kitted out with a billiards table with room left over. To the extreme left is a double garage and a store. Along the right side of the house are the bedrooms; the main is towards the rear for some

added privacy, and it has a view of the pool and the garden. There’s one smaller bedroom, and two larger ones with built-in study nooks and walk-in wardrobes. The kitchen, dining and family/meals areas have a view of the grounds, from the pool and spa to the tennis court. From the pool, an entrance at the side of the house leads to a separate bathroom and on to a sauna, allowing swimmers or guests to clean up instead of traipsing through the house. \ HARI RAJ

DARREN JONES, 9432 2544 16 Progress Road Price: $500,000 – $550,000 Auction: September 4 at 2pm

This house has been recently and lovingly restored, and it shows; everything from the ornamental glass at the entrance to the touched-up kitchen and the rather pretty finishes in each bathroom demonstrates that a lot of care has been put into it. It’s also built into a rise, with a double garage underneath and the family/living room taking advantage of the elevated position. There’s also space for under-house storage and a large outdoor paved area, which the vendors have sensibly set up as an outdoor retreat. For shopping, eating and schooling, the house is in between Greensborough and Eltham, and there’s also room to expand – it’s a corner block, with two driveways and an abundance of land, so a subdivision may well be a possibility – subject to council approval, of course. \ HARI RAJ

FLETCHERS, 9430 1111 11 Jumbuck Court Price: $750,000 – $850,000 Expressions of interest: Close August 31

With views of the valley through to the city, it’s clear that this house was designed and built to make the most of them. When you pass through the short entrance corridor, the house opens up; big picture windows in the family/meals area look out on the expanse. The main bedroom opens onto a private terrace and has a walk-through wardrobe that leads to the en suite. Cedar louvres along one of the walls open it up to the family room. All three bedrooms are towards the left side of the house, separated from its main body by a corridor that zones the sleeping and living areas. Wood is used throughout, while there are porcelain floors, too. The study at the front can also be converted into a bedroom. The al fresco area curves around the side of the house; it’s big enough to accommodate a barbecue and a dining table. There’s a double garage and room outdoors for more cars. \ HARI RAJ

VIEWBANK This modern house offers plenty of space for a growing family. There’s an L-shaped porch by the entrance, ideal for a couple of chairs or a couch. You enter into a vestibule, which branches off in three separate directions into a formal lounge, formal dining and a big meals/ family area. There’s a large rumpus room upstairs, big enough for a variety of purposes but excellent the way the vendors have it set up – with a study nook in one corner, a doll’s house in the other and room left over for a couch. The main bedroom has a deep walk-in wardrobe and spa bath en suite, and each of the three other bedrooms has built-in wardrobes. Outside, there’s a pleasant deck, perfect for entertaining, that leads to another covered al fresco area, while at the bottom of the garden there’s a nice enclosed patch that will accommodate swing sets and the like. \ HARI RAJ

Off the entry hall and the transverse hall, three bedrooms at the front of the house all have built-in wardrobes. The original bathroom, which looks as good as the day it was built, is made up of a design that was common in the ’70s. The bathroom has the bath and washbasin; the separate toilet is next to it; a separate shower is the third component. Ceiling fans, water tanks, evaporative cooling, garden shed, excellent storage and a large single garage with workshop are more features of this impressive property. \ MARIA HARRIS

BARRY PLANT, 9467 5444 31 David Crescent Price: $515,000 – $565,000 Auction: August 31 at 6pm

The quality of this house is evident the instant one walks up to the front door along a majestic cobblestone pathway. The interior of the brick house is deceptively modern. Floor-to-ceiling windows let light into the front bedroom. The main bathroom has pink tiling and modern fittings, including a luxurious spa bath. The main bedroom is a masterpiece, showcasing a spacious walk-in-wardrobe and an en suite as well as access to the backyard. On the right side of the house is a well-proportioned study and a living room decked out in purple carpeting, followed by the open dining and kitchen area. The fully equipped kitchen, with seemingly never-ending benchtops, offers the chef-to-be a magnificent garden view over the rear pergola, which is ideal for entertaining. A double tandem garage completes the picture at this property, which is close to Bundoora Square and Plenty Road trams. \ TOM HYWOOD
