Virginia trioli\ a day at the races

t

here we were: the most unlikely collection of drinking buddies this side of the Star Wars cantina. There was me; my husband, Russell Skelton, federal Labor MP Simon Crean, Liberal man about town Michael Kroger, long-time ABC political reporters Barrie Cassidy and Heather Ewart and trucking magnate Lindsay Fox. The last race on cup day had just been run, the toppling crowd was beginning to disperse, but we weren’t done yet. Fox, striding along like a man who always knew which direction was true north, waltzed us into a near-deserted marquee (Whose marquee? How would I know?) and asked the remaining, bewildered waiters to “bring us a bottle of Champagne, would you”. I know that the bloke did. Not quite sure exactly what happened after that, except that it turned out to be, like so many others, a very good day. The races are like that. Alliances are formed, best friends are quickly made (and unmade) confidences are shared, some money is won and, my God, some money is lost. But there is a whirlwind spirit of excitement and possibility and simple camaraderie that you could easily mistake for genuine friendship. OK, sometimes it might be: but the track is a place of mirages, and you have to be careful which ones you go running after. I’m sure you’ve seen these mirages. The frantically whispered late mail that sees you, with a hopeful rush

of blood to the head (and rush of hands to the wallet), drop far too much money on the horse that fades in the home straight. The woman who, after way too many Champagne cocktails, tells you stuff your sister wouldn’t trust you to know. And there you are, nodding your feathered head in furious agreement, only vaguely wondering just how you got there. I’ve had an (erstwhile) friend swear black and blue I never gave them $200 to drop on the nose of the horse that went on to win the cup; I’ve had TV stars confess drug habits and insist that we must all go away together at Christmas. You never see them again, of course. The place is just like that. I have a fatal addiction to the track, to its charms and potential. I remember banning myself several years ago when I discovered how readily I’d catch the 12.45pm to Flemington of a Saturday – any Saturday – to hang in the mounting yard, scrutinise the horse flesh and attempt to play the odds. It’s one of the very few places I can truly tune out and be entirely in the moment. I recognise types like me instantly now. I have a sneaking regard for their focus, their single-mindedness. But back to the drinking gang. It’s serendipitous moments such as these that I think I love best at the races. Drawing down on a hairy but quite serviceable cliché, the former prime minister Bob Hawke described the track as a place where “saints and sinners, princes

and paupers were equal” (except for the marquee tags attached to their wrists, of course …) and he was right. Fox was expansive and hilarious; while Kroger was in fine form, Crean was droll and only slightly disillusioned – these were the days of the Howard government – and Russell and I were taking as many mental notes as our addled minds could hold. The Champers was average and the conversation excellent. (And if you want to see some excellent fashion, forget the women: Crean always wears an extraordinarily well-cut suit, and exquisite hand-lasted shoes; worth looking out for.) Now, the track is such that my memory could be wrong about this entire event, but who is going to be even surer that it didn’t happen? There are other places and occasions in which I can imagine such a group settling into a high-spirited and largely unrepeatable conversation … maybe on federal election night, when all bets are off? But not many. The simple fact is that one bloke’s guess is as good as mine. When the horses jump we are all equals, barriers come down and that sense of optimism goes up. I haven’t had a cup day like that since … well, since the last one really. Happy punting everyone. \

Mark Webber hasn’t let fame or wealth affect his perspective on life or compassion for others. PETER WILMOTH spoke to him.

o, when did international sports superstars get so charming? Aren’t formula one drivers, with all that money and attention, meant to be self-absorbed? I’m in the local library with my daughter when the phone rings. It’s an unscheduled call from Mark Webber. He apologises for hassles that scrambled our plans to meet up in person. “When does it suit you to chat tonight?” he asks. “You tell me a good time.” I tell him a good time. “Great, I’ll call you then.” Webber lives in a world of private planes, pampering, adulation and massive wealth, but none of these seem to have compromised his down-to-earth character. On the dot comes the call and, relaxed and candid, he sounds prepared to discuss any aspect of Team Webber – that is the man from Queanbeyan, New South Wales, himself, his manager and partner Ann Neal and his family and friends. Let’s talk about season 2011. While he hasn’t had a win yet, Webber consistently finished in the points every race so far, and completed every race except at Monza in Italy. “A few positives,” Webber says of the year. “It’s been very consistent. You have to always measure yourself against what opposition you have at the time. I’ve had some very strong performances … but they haven’t been anywhere near enough. It’s been a bit of a bizarre season in many ways where one guy’s run away with it and the rest of us have had to grab what we can. “I had a very strong year last year and you want to improve from that and that hasn’t happened this year. You need to keep working hard. It’s as simple as that. “I’ve had quite a few second places, so I’ll try and get some wins.” Is it hard to keep pressure up on himself year after year? “I’ve had a pretty long career now and you learn what is important to make you still compete at the highest level week in, week out,” he says. “It comes down to keeping things as simple as you can, taking care of the processes and working on weaknesses, keeping your strengths and just improving, because the minute you’re not improving obviously you’re going backwards, particularly at this level.” Webber’s relationship with teammate Sebastian Vettel has at times been strained. At the Turkish Grand Prix in June 2010, a collision with Vettel cost Webber the lead, allowing McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button to move into first and second places. Webber dropped to third and Vettel dropped out of the race. At the time Webber said “I wasn’t totally happy with the situation” and the pair would disagree “until we go to our graves” over who was at fault. Now he describes their relationship as a healthy rivalry. “Last year was much more strained than this year,” Webber says. “It was very, very tense. We had a very strong battle throughout the year. Obviously there was contact on the track. There were some tensions within the team … I admit it was difficult. This year’s been a little bit more straightforward in terms of our relationship. When we’re fighting as we were last year, every weekend, that white-line fever is more intense. But we’ve spent a bit less time together this year; it’s not as tense.” It’s been a remarkable career for Webber since leaving Australia for the UK in 1995 to pursue his racing dreams. He debuted in formula one in 2002, and it has meant fame and fortune. Last year he was Australia’s highest-earning sportsman, according to BRW magazine’s rankings, earning $13.4 million, $4.4 million up on the previous year, He was happy to re-sign last year with the Red Bull team. “The team’s on a phenomenal run right now. Obviously I’ve been there a long time and we’ve done a lot together.

Sebastian’s had a great season this year. I’ve done my apprenticeship with smaller teams and I’ve now got myself into a position where I’m with a team that is quite sensational – continuity, everyone is aiming for us, everyone is aiming for our performance, aiming for our level. Having come through the smaller and middle teams, you don’t want to go back there in a hurry.” Webber’s life and career have been enriched by the inspiring presence of Ann Neal, whom he met in 1995 at the former Amaroo Park raceway in Sydney’s western suburbs. Neal, an English woman 13 years his senior, helps with Webber’s management and career strategy. “She’s been a rock,” he says. “I had a lot of drive, but she had plenty of drive as well … together we work very hard. “It’s a very small team – my dad and mum and family on my side – and Annie’s side as well. We took it head-on. For sure we had some rough roads. Never a straight road to get to where we got to. But that’s what you’ve got to learn from. That’s where she’s great. What makes you stronger is dealing with the adversities along the way. “She has been unbelievably loyal. She is biased but she can still give me a spray, don’t worry about that, about doing better. It’s been a good partnership and I will be forever thankful for the professional role she played while privately we’re obviously very close.” Webber copes all right with the fame and the attention and the strange life of an F1 star. “It’s certainly changed in the last few years. “If I walk into hotels or if I’m on a private plane, or if I do things which are not normal, they are still not normal for me; I still don’t take that stuff for granted. It is a function of my work. But if I want to go camping and have a log fire, those things, they still mean a huge amount to me.” He acknowledges the interest from women for race-car drivers. “A lot of people love the sport. It’s not that they might like you or your work, they love the sport, and particularly females.” In 2003 Webber organised and competed in a 10-day trek across Tasmania to raise money for children’s cancer research charities. After a three-year break, he is hosting the event again this year, now called the Swisse Mark Webber Tasmania Challenge.

w

ebber was inspired to launch the challenge after the death from cancer of his grandfather and his contact with friends with children touched by cancer. “I was pretty young when I saw my granddad die,” he says. “I was old enough to remember, and it really, really upset me. It’s even worse now to look back on how it affected him in the last years of his life. Such a great man. To have a finish like that was heartbreaking. So when I started having a profile, I thought I could make a difference. I went to a lot of hospitals in Australia and in the UK. That hits you straight between the eyes to see the parents there and these cracking young kids that been dealt a brutal hurdle.” For a fitness and outdoor activity fanatic with a desire to help, the challenge suited Webber well. “To have people be challenged, test themselves, they’re not quite sure if they are going to get through this type of challenge. But knowing there are other people that are having a completely different fight that could well not have the right finish for them … it rocks the family.” The response to Webber’s work in this area has been moving: “The letters I’ve received from people who’ve stayed in the units (we’ve helped fund) have meant a lot to me. “It’s very rewarding to be able to do that. At the end of the day I do a different job. I’ve driven racing cars for a long

Obviously there was contact (with Vettel) on the track. There were some tensions within the team … it was difficult. time and it’s given me a lifestyle that I would never, ever have dreamt of having. We’re all normal people, just trying to help out, to give someone a bit of relief, a bit of a leg up. “And the wisdom in people you come across – you learn how really, really good people do really, really good things.” His home with Neal is in Buckinghamshire, England. “I like to have it pretty similar to how I grew up in Queanbeyan, which was a great place to grow up. I have a good circle of friends, I’ve got a couple of dogs. I enjoy being there. I don’t like to talk a huge amount about what’s going on in my life when I get back there, and my friends understand that. They’re not all interested in racing.” At 35, Webber is a formula-one veteran. For how long does he see himself competing at this level? “You’re only as good as your last race, as they keep saying,” he says, adding that at the Japan Grand Prix he was on pace with Jenson Button, Seb Vettel and Fernando Alonso. “I’ve got a lot to offer still. I’m driving well. Not well enough yet, obviously, to put the amount of pressure that I would like to have done on (teammate) Sebastian (Vettel)

this year. It’s something I need to tackle next year. “When I’m getting this type of enjoyment out of putting the car to the limit, working hard with the guys, and as long as I’ve got the drive and motivation and desire to challenge for some top results, then I will continue. “There’s been a lot of guys do very, very well in their late 30s. Mansell won his championship (then). There is a crossover, for sure. By that I mean wisdom starts to play a very important role over bravado and speed.” A few days later I caught up with Webber in Sydney, just off a plane from Korea. I found him with mixed emotions, happy for Red Bull’s success in the Korean GP but saddened by the death the day before of his friend Dan Wheldon in an IndyCar pile-up in Las Vegas. “I’ve lost a few mates in racing,” he says. “It’s a club, really. We know what happens in the cockpit … the margins are very fine and sometimes it doesn’t go your way. “I’m not massively religious but for whatever reason the bloke upstairs decides that’s what it’s going to be that day.” \

Sorrento Serenity

A fresh day dawns on the peninsula. Except for the swaying of the native grasses, little is moving. And that is just the way the owners of this Sorrento home like it, for this is their retreat from hectic city life. Every client is different. For some the peninsula is a playground, a place where children explore, teens hang out, and sporting types of all ages sail and dive and play golf. For others it is about fishing, visiting wineries and entertaining city friends on shaded terraces. We have designed and built individual homes for individual clients with all these interests and more. “Individual” is not just what we do, it is all that we do. Every home. Every time. We design to your needs, your budget, your interests, your site and, critically, to the path of the sun across your site.

table, and I can only wonder about the Reece’s peanut butter cup, or the pear frangipane tart with rhubarb ice-cream. But you blokes really want to know about the steak, and the 1.5-kilogram offering priced at $295, don’t you? All will be revealed from the moment an impressive display of butchery appears on a timber slab at your table. Of the dozen or so cuts, larger ones are suited to sharing – or take the challenge and tackle “the cowboy”, a monster 1.4kg rib eye ($129), solo. The origin of each animal, what it was fed in its prime, the marbling (fat) scores of each piece of meat and the resulting flavour is carefully explained. The menu backs it up later, but I did find myself wanting a second peek at that board. Steer, in Chapel Street, South Yarra, is a 12-month-old venture between business partners Alex Moulieris and Robert Webber, who also own Crue Coffee Lounge and Café Republic in the same suburb. They began with a steak-focused Brazilian theme: “But at the end of the day the Brazilian food just didn’t resonate with people,” Moulieris says. “So we thought, when you think about great steak, you think about New York, so with Paul’s help (consulting chef Paul Wilson, ex Radii, Botanical), we changed our focus to sourcing the best cuts of beef available around Australia and operating in the style of a New York steakhouse.” That was a few months ago, and the resulting menu begins with a snappy corral of appetisers – about a dozen dishes suited to sharing – all priced at a reasonable $12. They might include a classic steak tartare, a warm salmon gravlax, slow-cooked octopus, or our choice, a Steer-style surf and turf. This dainty dish consisted of two neatly trimmed scallop discs and a matching pair of perfectly cooked pieces of creamy, unctuous pork belly, scattered with baby herbs; it was so finely wrought I wanted to rethink my steak order. There’s also a “deli appetisers” section that offers cured meats and seasonal mozzarella, two oyster choices and half-a-dozen non-beef options, including Milawa duck breast, tiger prawns, fish, pasta and risotto. The drinks tome indicates how determined this venture is to be all things to all people – from its broad cocktail, aperitif, spirit and beer offerings, to a diverse wine selection that knows no boundaries on price or continent. In the prized steak section there are more than two dozen cuts of beef available, including grain-fed steaks from Victoria, NSW and Queensland, Victorian grass-fed beef and a top-end wagyu selection. Prices begin with a 300-gram, 150-day grain-fed skirt steak at $29 and run to a David Blackmore-bred full-blood wagyu rib eye, fed on grain for 600-plus days and weighing 1500g, at a rather bullish $295. We struck a middle line on price, and looked for contrasting flavours, choosing a 600g Victorian free-range, grass-fed Black Angus rib eye priced at $55 and a Darling Downs 400-day grain-fed wagyu scotch fillet weighing a more ladylike 250g, priced at $59. Steer’s executive chef, Shaun Nielsen, says the most satisfying part of his job is securing and cooking such

food\ Leanne toLra reviews steer “amazing product”, which is sourced from the best suppliers around the country. “As far as I know, we are one of the few places in the country offering a $300 rib – our beef is as good as it gets in Australia,” he says. Each cut of meat is accompanied by an industry BMS, or beef marbling score, which is often indicative of flavour, but Nielsen’s team also lists its own FI (flavor intensity) score on the menu too. Our piece of rib eye had a BMS of two, and an FI of four. Its intense, herbaceous taste and tightly grained texture was a vivid contrast to the meltingly tender scotch fillet with a BMS of nine. The wagyu, perhaps one of the best pieces of meat I’ve eaten, was powerfully sweet and buttery, with perfectly nutty, caramelised extremities. Steer is certainly a venue for blokes (or big-time carnivores), but there were loads of “chick” dishes, including those desserts, that could make a girl pretty happy, too.

the find Big hands and flowery, fabric oven gloves just don’t seem right do they? And somehow they always tear or scorch mine. But rather than take over the kitchen myself, I’ve found a modern and fashionable solution. These extra long Kitchen Grip silicone chef mitts are flexible, water repellant and protect from heat up to 260 degrees. Despite feeling light and thin, they provide far more insulation than my ratty old fabric ones. They are washable, apparently bacteria-resistant and have a heat-proof loop to hang them on. But best of all, they appear to be durable, look masculine and fit a male hand and forearm comfortably – even my teenager’s. I live in hope.

I’ll out myself – I’m a Scanpan fan. My frypan gets a daily workout – twice if there’s a bloke and a weekend cooked breakfast involved, but that’s a DIY thing. This 28-centimetre sauté pan, part of the new IQ range, has a fabulous silicone-rimmed lid, which doesn’t “clang” and seals perfectly to retain moisture and flavour. It’s heavier than my frypan, which allows for good heat retention, and its deep sides provide room for stirring. It’s also oven safe to 260 degrees, so you can crisp up a frittata or brown up a gratin. And I’m told the IQ range is suitable for induction cooking, has integrated steam vents, a ceramic titanium surface (that’s why it’s so easy to clean) and is made using 100 per cent recycled aluminum.

If you’re a coffee geek like me, you’ll probably devour every word and image in Toby Smith’s gorgeous new book, Coffee Trails. Smith, who founded Toby’s Estate coffee with his sister, Joanna, in the late 1990s, has spent many years studying coffee. Coffee Trails is a glimpse of the places Smith has travelled in his search for the world’s finest coffees, sumptuously viewed through the lens of talented photographer Garrett Robinson. The pair travelled from Ethiopia to Yemen, tracing the history and mystique of the coffea bean and the people and places that provide it with distinctive qualities. There’s a section of coffee classifications that provides an espresso-sized understanding of coffee varietals and a matter-of-fact brewing section.

can imagine, there are a few perks to this job. At the very least, I get to travel around Victoria, calling in to wineries and cellar doors, chatting with winemakers and tasting through their wines. After tasting through wines from bottle and barrel, the last thing I usually want to do is have a glass of wine with the regional lunch or dinner I’ve been looking forward to. It’s beer I’m after to cleanse the palate and, fortuitously, there are usually conveniently located microbreweries in many of our more popular wine districts, with most serving good food that’s ideally matched to the hop and grain. It’s not just thirsty wine tasters such as me that the breweries are attracting. I called into Hargreaves Hill brewery in Yarra Glen for Sunday lunch recently and it was packed with families, wine tourists and beer aficionados sitting at the bar quizzing brewer Simon Walkenhorst about his latest brew – a dark, silky-smooth Russian IPA – as he poured beers. Unlike wine tasters, who can use a spittoon and still get a handle on a wine’s charms before buying, beer tasters have to swallow to fully taste a beer. Bitterness is a key sensation in a beer and, as the bitter-taste receptors are at the back of the palate, it’s the last thing you taste as you swallow.

hristine Barro couldn’t help herself when deciding which Philip Treacy spring/summer 2011 hats she would select for her Flinders Lane boutique, Christine. In a festive move, she has chosen a chic range appropriate for this year’s spring racing. “It’s absolutely the moment of the hat,” says Barro, who has recently returned from a buying trip in Paris. “The trend is back to a true hat form, as against the bits of fluffy feathers and flowers.” Barro says Treacy’s SS11 collection offers something for any style of dress. You can choose from the trilby for a modern gesture or opt for a European sway with the striped or floral Gondola hat. According to Barro, hats are back. The spring racing carnival is not just about perfect shoes and handbags, it’s also a time for hats to shine. She predicts the season will be dominated by black, cream, fuchsia and red, as well as white, silver and flesh tones. “Choose a brim no wider than your shoulders or your hat will get bumped all day,” cautions Barro. “And only buy a hat that is well designed to stay fixed to your head. You don’t want to be doing the Flemington salute all day.” Milliners are often the unsung heroes of the spring racing carnival; their laborious creations take hours to make, but it’s all in the name of love that these artisans stick to what they do best. The Essential Hat in East Prahran, run by renowned milliner Sue Drerup, has a team of specialist milliners. They make hats to order as well as designing ready-made ones if you’re looking for ideas. There are no hard-and-fast rules when it comes to wearing a hat; it’s all about choosing a style that suits your face, complements your outfit and makes you feel good from head to toe. Frocks that truly rock usually have had a little help from a good millinery partner. Milliner Lauren Martin, who has worked for The Essential Hat for five consecutive Melbourne Cups, started as a graduate in costume design from Swinburne University and did a stint with the Australian Ballet until securing a spot working with legendary Treacy in London. She spent four years in Britain and acquired a wealth of insight, the sort you only get when working closely with A-list clients and under great leadership. Martin isn’t convinced there’s a particular trend for the spring racing season; she says it’s a matter of what suits the wearer. “I don’t think it’s a case of big hats are in or out this year. I think people will always wear what they want to, so long as it matches the outfit.” Known for her precise stitching, milliner Catherine Ellen, who also works at the same shop, believes hats are getting smaller. “Women who might be sitting down to a lunch don’t want to be bumping into each other, so wearing something that won’t bother is important,” notes Ellen. “Some women like to wear big and wild, which is fantastic and leaves room for us to have a lot of creative fun.” Just a few months ago, Ellen won the Flowers and Feathers category of the prestigious Caussade and Septfonds XIXth Festival of Millinery hat prize, held in the south of France. Bonnie Evelyn Farmer (who makes hats under the Bonnie Evelyn brand) took out the 2011 Yellowglen Vintage Hat Competition at Hatstravagance at Flemington Racecourse. For Farmer, it was

14 The weekly review \ october 26, 2011

all about sculptural curves and adventurous design. Named Lady Yellowglen, the winning hat was made of two-toned, yellow-striped abacá, natural-coloured sinamay and hand-made, cream, silk-satin flowers, and adorned with Swarovski crystals and freshwater pearls. She’s big on vibrant colours, and a selection of her hats can be purchased from The Essential Hat. At Oscar & Wild boutique in Camberwell, a selection of exclusive headwear is available for the spring racing carnival. We couldn’t go past SophisticHat’s Envy – an effervescent mix of pistachio, avocado and cream canvas hatinator with long feathers. And if you’re after something with lots of va-va-voom, Christine stocks Parisian label Maison Michel. The collection is all about aesthetic accuracy with a dash of romance and occasional humour. Also available are pieces from Marie Mercié. \

beauty scribe\ DHaV NaiDu’s FieLD GuiDe tO MaLe GrOOMiNG I am sure once in a while, when you are at the Fellas, dentist’s or doctor’s surgery, or even at home, you would have flicked through a women’s magazine. You would have come across the bright and colourful pages with enticing headings such as “Get ready for spring”, “Your new skin” and “Tips to see you through this season”. These headings are designed to make women sit up and take notice. Even I am guilty of doing that for TWR. I know it is no big deal for you blokes. You just shrug your shoulders. From emails coming through, I sense that men need advice on how to tackle the coming season. I am touched that guys are feeling that it is good to look after themselves and are seeking sensible tips. So guys, this is your field guide to grooming for the warmer months. Remembering what 1960s group the Delltones sang in their hit Get a Little Dirt on Your Hands, “… if you wanna grow up to be a big, big man, [you gotta] get a little dirt on your hands”. So guys, be men and get into action. It’s not too late to spruce up for the all-important summer months. \

A guys’ skin is about 35 per cent thicker than a woman’s and more hirsute, so the body needs to be regularly exfoliated to stay clean, smooth and to be without blemishes or ingrown hairs.

askdhav@gmail.com

Face

ConairPRO Nose & Ear Trimmer ($17.95).

These are jewels in any grooming kit, taking care of beards, sideburns, chest, nose and ear hair in a jiffy and without pulling or snagging – just perfect. For the man who needs to be smooth all over, ditch waxes and shavers and indulge in a lotion to dissolve unwanted hair. As usual with all things, do a test patch and follow instructions carefully. Veet For Men Hair Removal Gel cream (200ml, $10.50) is the choice pick. For guys who need that extra fix to keep their nether regions smooth there is BYB (Below Your Belt) Shaving Cream (180ml, $79). It is very gentle and will not irritate the skin.

If you have an important date and want to look your radiant best, indulge in Super By Dr Nicholas Perricone 3-Minute Facial Intensive Treatment (60ml, $75.95). Pricey it may be but the results are just brilliant and it is very addictive.

And finally, it is hard to keep a good man down, and as much as we try to stop him, he will get his hands dirty. So be a “big, big man and get a little dirt on your hands” but first apply some Junglebrolly HandShield Industrial Formula (500ml, $34.95). It will keep your hands clean, free of stains and stop them being “brutalised”.

Another great alternative is Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask (100ml, $45); charcoal never looked this good.

reducing the mild redness to which guys are prone.

Origins Save the Males (75ml, $59) is a multitasking moisturiser to meet all your manly skin demands.

If you need some colour, the best self-tanning lotion made specifically for men is California North Titanium Self Tanner (250ml, $27, excluding shipping) has a refreshing citrus scent and is easy to apply.

Trimming is by far the least cumbersome of all treatments. The two products that I swear by are BaBylissPRO Forfex FX760 Cordless Trimmer (from $89.95) and the

Yes, I have promoted this product countless times and no, I do not have shares in the company, but Kiehl’s Pineapple Papaya Facial Scrub (100ml, $38), made with real fruit – is still one of the best on the market for its price and effectiveness.

Elemis Daily Redness Relief (50ml, $88) is excellent for

skin in optimum condition.

For the hirsute man who likes to keep his hair in check, here are a few options:

The winter weather, with its chill and dryness, makes skin look sallow and lifeless. So what you need is to get rid of all the dead, lacklustre skin and give your face a glow; this will also limit ingrown hairs and breakouts. You need an exfoliator, but not one with granules, which tend to scratch the skin. One dermatologist told me “your face is not a pan, you do not need to scrub it”. So look for exfoliators with glycolic acids and fruit acids. These will painlessly and effortlessly remove dead skin and give your skin a renewed glow.

Moisturisers for the warmer months are always tricky because you do not want to look like an oil slick. Don’t forget you need to use a separate, high sun-factor sunscreen over your moisturiser.

BOOKS\ CORRIE PERKIN FINDS A DIFFERENT SIDE OF GEORGE HARRISON FoRmeR Beatle George Harrison loved racing cars. As a

OutsourceMyMarketing.com.au#14769

12-year-old Liverpool lad he watched the British Grand Prix at Aintree, saw Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss race for Mercedes-Benz, and was hooked. “It’s fascinating when you know the drivers and the teams and all their problems, and you can see them as people,â€? Harrison once observed. “Because they are just people, but to go to work they have to get in this car and do 180 miles an hour (300km/h).â€? British formula one champion Damon Hill recalls that, as a young driver desperate for a chance to drive, he contacted the musician and asked for financial support. “I was really shocked that he actually said he would help. But he helped lots of people in different ways that you never get to hear about ‌ I felt really grateful to George for helping me out at a time when I really needed a leg up.â€? In her new book George Harrison: Living In the Material World, Olivia Harrison pays tribute to her late husband’s petrol-head side. There are photographs of George at the track, George in the pits; at first glance they seem out of kilter with the rest of the book – this is a pictorial tribute to a man whose life was music and whose deep spirituality was triggered by experiences in India in the late 1960s and ’70s. What is he doing laughing among the grease monkeys?

McLaren FI designer Gordon Murray best sums it up when he says that Harrison “could draw a parallel between meditation, that form of mind control, and what racing drivers have to do to drive quickly�. Racing cars took Harrison back to a pre-Beatles era, a time when he was a working-class kid with formula one heroes. Living In The Material World presents George in the many phases of his life, thus the passion for motor sports – along with the songwriting, the guitar playing, the movie making and the meditating – is part of his journey. The man known as the quiet Beatle died in November 2001 after a lengthy battle with cancer. Next month’s 10th anniversary is marked by this beautiful hardcover. Don’t expect a traditional rock-music bio of the kind we saw last year with Keith Richards’ bestseller Life. Living In The Material World is a pictorially driven chronology of Harrison’s life, woven together with quotes from family and friends, as well as a foreword by film director Martin Scorsese and a warm introduction by writer Paul Theroux. “Nothing I can say about George speaks louder than his music,� writes Olivia in the final pages. “Knowing how reluctant he was to talk about himself led me to illustrate his years mostly in pictures.� It’s a brilliant format. Chapter one, titled “After The Bombs�, captures the bleak mood of postwar England and a partially bombed Liverpool struggling back to its feet. The youngest of four children, Harrison’s family was

poor (his father was a bus driver) but they lived happily, with weekends spent roaming the countryside around Liverpool and trawling through bombed-out buildings. He bought his first guitar at 13 and, with school friend Paul McCartney, taught himself to play. Paul introduced him to John Lennon and the Beatles story began. Beatles fans will relish the anecdotes and ephemera of these chapters, but this part of Harrison’s life ends in his late 20s and he still had much to explore and to contribute. In the late 1960s Harrison developed a connection with India and a friendship with musician Ravi Shankar. After the Beatles split up, his time with Shankar and with other artists such as Bob Dylan had a huge impact on his work. “In a way he’s a hero of mine,’’ says Harrison of Dylan. “But at the same time, like with Ravi, I’m blessed in as much as being with them just makes life that much better.’’ The book also takes its readers into Harrison’s private world of Friar Park, the Henley-on-Thames mansion he bought and restored as his home and recording studio. Gardening became a passion during this time. His son, Dhani, recalls his earliest memory of his father “is probably somewhere in a garden covered in dirt’’. Paul Theroux believes Harrison was the ideal gardener: “a man dedicated to whittling down his ego’’. Very non-formula one, very non-popstar. Very George Harrison. \

BILLY CONNOLLY’S ROUTE 66 by Billy Connolly » $35 (Sphere)

ARE WE THERE YET? GREAT CAR GAMES TO KEEP FAMILIES SANE! by Jo Pink » $14.99 (Collins and Brown)

Yet another book about the Big American Road Trip, but this one oozes Billy Connolly’s dry Scottish wit and hunger for adventure. On his custom-made trike, Connolly heads across the US along the road he describes as “representing freedom, migration and the empty loneliness of the American heartland’’, from Chicago to Los Angeles, across the plains of Illinois and Missouri, Oklahoma and Kansas, the Texas Panhandle and into New Mexico, Arizona and California. Just as in his TV travel programs, Connolly makes friends easily, and the characters he meets along the road give this account its heart and humour. \

Continuing this week’s motoring theme, we present the parents’ lifesaver. Throwing the kids, the dog, the beach gear, the bikes and the suitcases in the car and heading off on a summer holiday might sound a good idea. But two hours later, as the “are we there yet?’’ cries from the back seat threaten to tip you over the edge, you wonder: why didn’t we just book a plane flight to Surfers Paradise? Rest easy, your salvation is here. This little hardcover presents dozens of games – with instructions – designed for car trips. We all know I Spy, but have you tried Waving Chicken, or Back Seat Hide and Seek, or the Nasty Butterfly? Hey, you don’t know what you’re missing out on! \

hen the vendor arrived in Watsons Creek in 1996, there was just a house on a hill. She has spent the past decade carefully cultivating every other single thing you see on the property – the stables, the arena, the swimming pool and the wonderful gardens were the result of her hard work. In front of the house, the largest tree was the first planted when she moved in. The vendor describes this property – called Windjana – as her “spiritual sanctuary”, and it’s easy to see why. The views are spectacular – rolling hills in the distance, and views from hilltop to hilltop. Down in one dale, while we talk, a curious kangaroo watches. And oh, the gardens. The vendor doesn’t paint any more – instead, she says, she works in landscape. The gardens as they are today are the culmination of more than 10 years of effort, but the end result is that you don’t really have to do very much to them. They’re drought resistant, and the plants are watered only during the most severe heat. The vendor put in every plant herself, and to list them all would take up too much space. Let us instead focus on lavender and ornamental pears, apples and apricots and mandarins and oranges, and on the vendor’s views about permaculture. The gardens are organic, pesticides aren’t used, all in keeping with the philosophy of self-sufficiency. Watching chooks scratch around, it’s hard to disagree. In a paddock lower down, two horses stand idly by – the vendor used to have seven, but she probably didn’t scatter them across the property’s eight paddocks. And while there are echidnas, wombats, birds and bees in the garden and more than 70 kangaroos, the horses got the best of the deal. This is because of the stables that have been nicknamed the “Horses’ Hilton”. They’re not just very pretty, they’re jam-packed with features, including hot

and cold showers and stalls secure from the predations of Victoria’s fickle weather. There’s an arena with more gorgeous views, and round yards and just about every other thing you can think of, including a kitchenette. Now it’s time to discuss the house, in all its terracotta hues. The main bedroom, laundry, study and kitchen/ dining areas are all spacious, but the house gets them out of the way relatively quickly so it can focus on other things. The first hint of this is the courtyard that acts as a light well, just off the dining room. This, however, is just a prelude to the delights that are in store from the lounge. That’s because you now have uninterrupted views out over the outdoor entertainment deck to the greenery far off in the distance. In between is the pool, looking for all the world like a pane of glass set into the wooden deck. There’s a shade sail for the sun and enough space for a whole family, or families, to relax. There’s also another entire wing, connected by what is a sun-dappled corridor when The Weekly Review visited. The vendor’s kids occupied this one, and they had a rumpus room of their own and a bar. There are three bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes, and two have en suites. Next to this is the studio, the walls of which seem to be composed entirely of floor-to-ceiling windows. It has been many things in its lifetime – the vendor used to paint in there, it has been a home office where two members of staff worked, and latterly her musician children used it as a place to play the blues. With those views, it was probably quite hard to maintain the relevant mindset. The vendor says she’ll miss it – and it’s easy to see why, as you imagine what it would look like to see the sun going down over the hills, or riding a horse along the trails and stopping for a meal and a pot at the Panton Hill pub. New owners can be assured of spirit, character, and happy trails. \

where to live \ we love it

ivANhoe eASt It’s hard to believe that this magnificently modern – and unashamedly large – property was once a modest 1950s cream-brick unit. The metamorphosis began at the turn of the millennium. After two years of planning and one in construction, the property was reborn as a stunning and spacious family residence in 2003. What was once the lounge is now a home cinema, and the kitchen is now one of four good-sized bedrooms. The traditional front door has been replaced by glass in a foyer bound by dramatic six-metre glass walls. The large family hub is a stylish and functional new addition.

Vogue Living and Melbourne Home. The kitchen is ideally positioned near a family-sized service area and the garage. The owners weren’t originally intending to build a top floor until they realised what they could see from up top. A vast top-storey verandah has city views framed by gorgeous old trees. It is directly accessed from the kids’ retreat and the luxurious main bedroom with its en suite and walkin wardrobe. This large house is in good proportion with the 1267-square metre corner block. Although on a busy corner, opposite the historic Ivanhoe East Tennis Club, you can’t hear a thing out in the backyard. In fact, it is so peaceful that the owners have installed a Japanese garden for quiet contemplation. \ LIAM CARTER

JELLIs CRAIg, 9490 2900 92 Bellevue Avenue Price: $780,000 + Auction: October 29 at 11am 20 The weekly review \ october 26, 2011

Bellevue Avenue is a fine Rosanna address. It connects the high-performing Rosanna Primary School with the Uniting Church and cosmopolitan Rosanna village and is split-level with a bush-cloaked median. The 1960s house at No. 92 has been so completely renovated and extended that it looks and feels new. It now has a high-pitched second storey with three charming dormer windows. Only the bathrooms, with their ageless Federation tiling, were left unchanged. Downstairs there are two bedrooms, including the main with en suite, and two studies. Up top, two more bedrooms share a good-sized retreat. Living space includes a meals area and separate sunken lounge off the new CaesarStone kitchen. Glass sliding doors lead to a paved outdoor entertainment area bound by a young landscaped garden. This 664-square metre property is an easy stroll from Rosanna’s expansive parklands. \ LIAM CARTER

ELTHAM It is easy to love thy neighbour at 19 Wattle Grove. That’s because the neighbours across the road from this charming white weatherboard house sit on vast allotments that allow an uninterrupted outlook of rolling hills and greenery. The countryside views are best enjoyed from the deep front verandah or from the upstairs balcony off the expansive main bedroom, which has a twin-vanity en suite. Built in the 1960s, this cottage-style house has been extended over time and now includes two living spaces, three bedrooms and a study over two spacious levels. Ideal for guests, the front bedroom also has an en suite and opens to the wraparound verandah. Across the hall, there is a delightful little lounge with fireplace and double glass doors that lead out to the deck. The tile-clad family hub includes plenty of space for entertaining, and a renovated kitchen with large Lofra oven and Bosch dishwasher. Timber, from the kitchen cabinets to the stairs, adds warmth to this part of the house. The family room extends out to a rear deck surrounded by a tiered cottage garden with a babbling water feature and good-sized vegie patch. A double carport nearby is accessed by a side driveway. The house includes ducted heating and split-system air-conditioning. Although moments from downtown Eltham, this 775-square metre property could easily be somewhere much further away. \ LIAM CARTER

Within the past two years, the owners of this house have added their personal touch by renovating the bathroom and laying new carpets in the bedrooms. The house has a neutral colour scheme but there are bright injections of colour in the bedrooms, which shake up the colour palette. The open-plan lounge/meals area continues through to a kitchen that has stainless steel appliances, glass splashbacks and an island bench. Glass doors from the kitchen lead to the undercover decking. There is plenty of room to host a barbecue while overlooking the backyard and the kids’ play equipment. The main bedroom is at the front and has built-in wardrobes. Down the hall, which has polished floors, are two more bedrooms. One bedroom has lime-green walls and the other has baby-pink walls. All three bedrooms share a family bathroom. This property also has new ducted heating, ample off-street parking and is near the Aberdeen Road shops. \ BIANCA VILLAROSA

Built in the 1940s, this clinker-brick house has managed to retain its original charm and character, but a renovation makes it contemporary. The three-bedroom residence hasn’t changed a bit on the outside, with the common exterior colours of the day, including Indian red, green apple and dark brown, still evident. The polished timber floors, sash windows, panelled ceilings and paint schemes with lighter tones set the scene. Inside, you will also find glass doors separating the kitchen and formal lounge/dining area. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and granite benchtops. It overlooks the meals area, which has a blue feature wall and steps down into the family room. A door leads outside to a covered deck and the back garden with its fruit trees and a cubby house. There is also a bungalow that could serve as a teenagers’ retreat. All three bedrooms share the family bathroom with spa bath. The house also has ducted heating and evaporative cooling. \ BIANCA VILLAROSA
