All weekends are not created equal A simple truth known to our clients is this: weekenders don’t have to be beside the seaside to be restful. In fact, weekend retreats in rural places like the Yarra Ranges‘ home illustrated here, can provide a year-round tranquillity unattainable to those in popular beach locations. We have designed and built ‘second homes’ for clients in locations all around Melbourne, from the coastal extremities of the Mornington and Bellarine Peninsulas to the ‘tree-change’ areas around Woodend, Kyneton and the Yarra Ranges. In all locations our designs are individual, contemporary and bright. These days too, in a development we welcome, we are frequently being briefed to design city houses with the simplicity, informality and ease of maintenance of a coastal or country property. Typically such briefs are for empty nesters and retirees who have neither the need nor the desire for large, high maintenance properties and yearn for the relaxation and simplicity of an endless weekend.

ang on to your green wedges, there’s another metropolitan planning strategy on its way. Almost 10 years after Melbourne 2030 we are to have a new state government plan to manage metropolitan growth, boundaries and corridors. But what is this mob planning to actually do? To genuinely take account of growth and to manage that in a sustainable way? To take on the naysayers who resent all types of development anywhere near them even while they mouth the platitudes of wanting to see affordable housing? To strenuously insist on the need for federal government support to plan for and build the transport, water and utilities infrastructure that this city sorely lacks? Any of this? Anything? Hello? While my default position is ordinarily that of Pollyanna (optimistic to a fault), I’m feeling decidedly blue about this one. I was one of many who thought that there was really not much wrong with Melbourne 2030 that a decent amount of political backbone couldn’t fix. Having come up with a vision to throw a cordon around the perimeter of Melbourne – meaning growth had to be inwards and upwards – the previous government seemed to lose all nerve in the face of some resident and transport action groups who didn’t like the idea of higher density in their neck of the woods. That plan demonstrated, in my view, a perfectly reasonable comprehension of the reality of this city’s growth,

but the political and financial will to actually fund the transport needs – public and private; the school, parkland and long-term infrastructure needs just didn’t seem to be there. It doesn’t help that successive federal governments don’t seem to see such plans as part of nation building (that is, part of their business). Instead, they leave it to piecemeal planning subject to the increasingly intense vagaries of individual political fortunes and community backlash. Happy days. At a recent forum put on by the Municipal Association of Victoria that considered the possibilities that such a new plan could include, these vagaries were made very clear. The pressure for expanded development is high. But what gets lost in the economic rush is some of the precious food-growing land at our city’s edge, which would ensure our food security for the next century. If the great next expansion is westward towards Geelong, as it seems to be, whither the growing lands of Werribee and its surrounds? If e-tailing is going to keep developing as the retail of the future, how do we expect all those goods to be shipped to our front door, without paying for it with crowding on our freeways, roads and even local streets? The “ubiquitous white vans”, as Rose Elphick from the Victorian Freight and Logistics Council calls them, that represent 70 per cent of freight traffic but carry only 10 per cent of the goods, are eating our city, and we ordered them.

When urban planner Andrea Sharam blithely queried why one wouldn’t put an eight-storey building into the “hole in the ground” that is Camberwell station, half the room gasped in shock, and my heart sank. So this is what another attempted vision at long-term planning for our city is going to descend into again? Yet more selfish squabbles about “Not in My Backyard”. The state government is receiving submissions now, but before you leap onto your email and start objecting to six- and eight-storey buildings, or underground tunnels anywhere near your suburb, stop for a moment. Think about the spread of this city, the sustainability of this city and think about the before and after of this city. Go back in your memory as far as you can and compare the Melbourne that was with the one that is now. And for all the political failure on making public transport better, or ensuring the longevity of water, gas and electricity infrastructure, or of helping to build more sustainable communities, this city is now, I would argue, a far more invigorating, interesting, and enlivening place to be than it ever was. More people will be coming, whether you like it or not, to continue that life. Think hard about the best way we can all live together well when they do. \

These kids are

incredible... “They preTTy much have noThing in Their liTTle lives, yeT They always have smiles on Their faces and They look aT me as This superhero.” - breTT lee

I

t’s morning and a warm breeze blows up the squalid main street of Govandi, bringing with it the stench of Mumbai’s largest tip, Deonar. But there is something else in the air today. Excitement is building and, before long, a crowd of hundreds is jostling with the rubbish trucks in the street outside a humble shop front. Inside, a fresh-faced blond man from Australia sits cross-legged on the floor with a group of children who live alongside the tip. Together, they are jamming on instruments and bantering effortlessly in Hindi. This is the Brett Lee that India knows and loves. To Australia, he is a leading cricketer with a boy-next-door charm. To India, he is a hero. But today he is also a philanthropist and he is at Govandi as part of his new not-for-profit foundation, Mewsic, helping disadvantaged children throughout India. The first project for his foundation has been a community music centre at the tip. The centre, stocked with donated instruments and run by paid tutors from the local community, offers singing and vocal groups, a dance program and instrument lessons for the children who work at the tip. “These kids are incredible,” Lee says. “They pretty much have nothing in their little lives, yet they always have smiles on their faces and they look at me as this superhero. Their reaction to the centre was brilliant; they gave me a big hug and we sang and danced. It was a really emotional moment. “I didn’t want this to be about me and just putting my name to a charity. I wanted to be involved with the kids and thought it would be wonderful to bring some hope into their lives through music.” Hope is a rare commodity at Deonar, which is a dumping ground for the rubbish of 22 million people. Many of the children at Deonar scour the tip each day in a desperate search for items to eat or sell. “They are called rag-pickers,” Lee says. “And they spend their days sifting through the rubbish, grabbing handfuls of anything they think might be important.” Those who don’t work at the tip are paid meagre wages to embroider clothes in the slums nearby. The narrow alleys are home to hundreds of small clothing factories, and the Indian law against child labour is non-existent. “There is a chain in India and these kids are at the bottom of it,” Lee says. “It is very sad to see and has a big impact on you the first time you visit.” While not-for-profit organisations work to provide basic necessities to the poverty-stricken in India, Lee wants his foundation to offer a bright spot in the children’s lives and give them an opportunity to express themselves in nurturing environments. “Music is a wonderful form of expression and hope,” he says. “I want the centres to be sanctuaries and to

6 The weekly review \ NOVEMbEr 23, 2011

give the children a taste of what it’s like to be in a classroom, so this can be a stepping stone in their lives, a path to further education.” Of course, Lee is not the first Australian cricketer to fall in love with India, and he’s not the first to offer support. Lee’s Australian Test skipper Steve Waugh in 2003 was named an Officer of the Order of Australia (AO) for his charity work at an Indian orphanage. Like Waugh, Lee’s desire to help the children of his “second home” is genuine and his scope is wide. At least 10 music centres will open across Mumbai before the end of the year, with the second already open in India’s largest slum, Dharavi, where more than a million people cram into 173 hectares. “Another 25 centres are planned for other parts of the country in the next 12 months,” Lee says. “And I don’t see why we can’t have 100 of these centres around India.” But the foundation’s plans do not end there. This year, it has joined forces with The Music Therapy Trust to work with young people who have suffered the trauma of war in the conflict state of Kashmir, where the rate of depression has escalated in people under the age of 25. Together, they are training locals in clinical music therapy. Another project includes songwriting workshops for young people affected by prostitution, child labour and child marriage. With the help of the Australian-based organisation MusoMagic – founded by Chocolate Starfish frontman Adam Thompson – the workshops

W or d s \ P e n n y H a r r i s on

will encourage young people to express themselves by writing, choreographing and performing their own songs. The first workshop was held in September, when more than 100 children from the Dharavi music centre came together with Lee to pen and perform a song. This song has since been picked up as the campaign song for an initiative between PAN (People and Nature) India and international music channel Vh1. “Music is such a powerful outlet,” Lee says. “You can tell your story and open up through music. It has helped me through many tough times in life, and I want disadvantaged kids to have the opportunity to heal and learn and grow from all that music can offer.” For Lee, Mewsic is clearly a source of great pride. It’s an endeavour that has earned him the praise of the Australia India Business Council, which officially recognised his contribution to building relations between the countries at a dinner in New South Wales. He has been involved in charitable work in India and Australia for more than a decade. He was the ambassador of Deakin University’s India research institute and helped work on its water filtration and sanitisation research program in the country. Lee won many hearts in the cricketing world in 2004 when he escorted a 14-year-old cancer patient to the Allan Border Medal ceremony as part of his work with the Make a Wish Foundation. He and his brother, Shane, also support the Adventist Development and Relief Agency. “I have so much in my life,” Lee says. “If I can do something for someone else, whether it’s just taking a minute to sign an autograph, then I will try to do it.” A father of one, Lee sees Mewsic as his way of giving something back to the country that has embraced him as one of its own. With a speed befitting a pace bowler, he has become one of the most marketable figures in the world’s second-most populous country. Already, he has been involved in a host of ventures there, ranging from modelling and a clothing line to a hit album and a Bollywood film role. And whether it’s being chanted at an Indian Premier League (IPL) match or screamed at by a mob whenever he appears on a crowded street, Lee’s name is on everyone’s lips. But ever the modest, knockabout boy from Wollongong, Lee says any feeling of adoration is mutual. It’s an adoration that has brought him to the country more than 50 times in the past decade. Lee’s love affair with India started in 1994, well before his Test debut in 1999, when he was asked to tour the country with the Australian under 19s. “I was still living at mum and dad’s and had never

even left the place where I was born,” he recalls. “Suddenly I found myself in this hot, hard, massive, crazy country, and all I could think was ‘amazing’. The feeling stayed with me long after I got back from that first visit.” He is now a regular presence in the country and is often accompanied by his son, Preston, 5. Lee has rubbed shoulders with India’s rich and famous, including the likes of fellow cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and Bollywood actress Preity Zinta. But, he says, it is the overwhelming generosity and kindness of people from all walks of life that keeps him coming back. This year, Lee played in the IPL with the Kolkata Knight Riders, and he has conducted bowling clinics for young people in Mumbai and Bangalore. And yet he chose music, rather than cricket, as the means to help marginalised children in the cricket-obsessed country. The reason, he says, is a fervent belief in the power of music to heal and empower. Lee sees music as an “escape to a different world. It’s hard to explain what it means to me. “When I’m on the cricket field in front of 60,000 screaming Indians, it’s a great feeling; it’s so energetic. But when I’m in front of a crowd playing music, it’s totally different. It’s like I found the missing part of the jigsaw. I may have had one of the worst days at cricket, but when I come home and start singing and playing music, I’m able to relax.” Music has become an essential part of the cricketer’s life in recent years. His band, White Shoe Theory, toured India last year and he is renowned in the country for his chart-topping duet with music legend Asha Bhonsle. “I like playing cricket, but I love music,” he admits. “If you took cricket out of my life I’d be sad. If you took music out of my life, I’d be devastated.” Lee, who admits he finds watching cricket boring, talks a lot about his love of music in a new autobiography, My Life (Random House). In the book, he reveals his desire for a life beyond sport, and his passion for music and entertaining. Growing up with two brothers, Lee says he was sports mad and played everything from cricket to soccer. It was his mother who filled the house with music. “My mother played the piano and we always had music in the house. “I remember my brothers, friends and cousins and I would have singalongs around the piano,” he says. “My younger brother, Grant, played the piano and my older brother, Shane, bought an acoustic guitar. I felt like I was missing out so I bought a bass. That was it for me.” Even Preston is showing an interest in music and has shunned the Wiggles for the Black Eyed Peas. “He loves it,” Lee says. “We always have music on. It’s an important part of our lives.” Lee this week is in Melbourne on a book tour and will return in January for the T20 Big Bash League. And despite his stretched schedule and commitment never to spend more than a week away from home, he will make regular visits to India and his foundation’s music centres, which will be managed in his absence by a mascot, Binga (one of Lee’s nicknames), and Australian-owned philanthropy advisory group Innovaid. “It’s my dream to come back to India regularly, go to the centres, play some music and have a laugh with the kids,” Lee says. “I really want to be involved, to spend time there and make sure the centres and all our other programs really are making a difference. If I can change just one person’s life through this, then I will sleep pretty soundly.” \

the trio of women on our right is enjoying rather large, prettily decorated desserts. There’s a group of after-work revellers out on the laneway terrace, too but, midweek on a balmy spring night, this cave-like 120-seater is eerily empty. I suspect it’s the lull before the seasonal storm. The French Brasserie has weathered bigger tempests – it launched in March 2008 and survived the ensuing financial downturn. Three-and-a-half years and three chefs later, it’s a smooth operation. Christmas bookings should be flooding in about now, as this converted car park, with its vaulted ceilings and imposing windows that was once the home of The Italian, is a spectacular function space. Co-owner Hadj Sadki began as a waiter at Café Di Stasio and lists the Dog’s Bar, The Melbourne Wine Room and The Birdcage on the rungs of his managerial climb. He and wife Lina bought The Grand Hotel in Richmond in 2006. He’s recently installed Alex Galaitsis (ex-Sud and Church Street Enoteca) as manager, with a mission to reshape the wine list and increase its French, Australian and New Zealand leanings, at the expense of some Italian and German varietals, and to support the well-polished floor team and the chef of two years, Lionel Abello. Abello spent time at The Metropolitan in North Melbourne, at La Grande Bouffe in Sydney and a year-and-a-half in Noosa. He hails from Languedoc in southern France, the son of a butcher, and says his cooking style is still strongly influenced by his homeland origins. His menu carefully juggles classics such as beef tartare and French onion soup with more inventive dishes that showcase many elements of southern France and its north African influences. Once, we might have called his creations “nouvelle cuisine”; now I guess the label would be modern Australian. The carpaccio de champignon entrée was first evidence of this creativity. We selected it for contrast with a classic French onion soup. The soup’s superior broth was filled with a tangle of noodle-fine onions and a hearty slice of baguette topped with the salty, savoury bite of perfectly grilled gruyère. The mushrooms – slivers of king brown – were fanned on a long, white plate and striped with drizzles of balsamic vinegar reduction. The fungi provided texture more than flavour and were the foil for a divine porcini mousse. Hazelnut oil, sprinkled around, and tiny jewels of beetroot and dried apricot added a little sweetness and were accompanied by a sprinkling of goat’s cheese, a few shaved almonds and a scattering of baby herbs. It was very busy, rather pretty, and the mousse was the hero.

Other traditional entrée choices include beef tartare with croutons, oysters with mignonette sauce and escargot with garlic butter, while creative alternatives such as a charcuterie platter, smoked ocean trout, octopus and poached rabbit loins will appeal to the adventurous. The grill section of the menu proffers yearling minute steak with bordelaise sauce, aged grain-fed porterhouse with Montpellier butter and our choice, a yearling eye fillet with red-wine jus. No challenges and no criticisms of this dish: quality meat, cooked with precision, a bright and fresh watercress purée, a crisp potato darphin (or rosti) and a luscious jus. The rabbit offering – a twice-cooked leg with liquorice sauce, a sesame seed-crusted confit shoulder, baby beet mousse and salad with broad beans – demonstrates that, often, if a dish sounds overly busy, it is. Other simpler-sounding choices included duck a l’orange, bouillabaisse, pork belly with apple purée and lamb rump with rosemary jus. The farmed rabbit meat was of excellent quality, the mousse and the creamy liquorice root sauce were another show of the chef’s finesse, but while the flavours and textures were elegant, some of the elements seemed unconnected. Desserts, by comparison kept simple, featured classics such as crème brûlée and mouse au chocolat, a terrific rhubarb terrine and a generous strawberry tart. The earthy texture of the rhubarb, held together by a subtle strawberry jelly, was enhanced by a headily sweet white chocolate sorbet and the bite of a crisp sable Breton beneath it. The balsamic ice-cream and the delicate poached berries were the highlights of the crisp-shelled, custard-filled tart. That TFB survived the GFC and beyond is not a bit surprising, and I’ll bet the phone rings hot for the next few weeks. \

This impressive city venue is notable for its striking architecture, laneway location and assured French-accented service team. Artfully presented, proficiently executed dishes that show both contemporary and classical leanings, and an extensive, considered wine list, please its broad-but-discerning audience.

Dramatic high ceilings with towering windows and a laneway location give The French Brasserie a rarified air of space, sophistication and spectacle. Dark walls, clothed tables, bistro chairs, polished timber floors and a seven-metre-long marble-topped bar are its more grounded elements. Filigree wall screens break up spaces and add interest, an impressive beverage collection lines the bar shelves while, upstairs in the striking function room, a wall is filled with empty Champagne bottles.

wane and we are looking for what’s going to replace it as the go-to summer tipple. Rosé is more popular than ever, aromatic whites are charming anyone who comes within whiffing distance and chardonnay is going through a rebirth – the choice is immense and summer could be over before you’ve settled on your favourite wine. To save time (and money), I asked sommeliers from three pillars of dining to give me their insights into what’s going to be hot drinking. Representing fine dining is Sarah Ward, sommelier at Circa, the Prince in St Kilda. Opinions from the hottest new kid on the block are brought to you by Mark Bailey from the Aylesbury in the

CBD and in the local upmarket bistro corner is Alastair Dobbs from new Hampton restaurant Os Kitchen and Wine Bar. For Ward, summer drinking is all about “the two big Rs: riesling and rosé”. “It is great to see more people drinking riesling; it is a fantastic wine to match with food, so versatile. As for rosé, a wine that can be dry, savoury, textural and also pink … it’s the perfect summer drop, with or without food. “We are building up our Champagne selection, bringing in some more rosé, and indulging in a broader range of whites by the glass. “Sitting on the Circa balcony with an ’09 Raveneau is not a bad way to spend one’s afternoon.” It’s a similar story at the Aylesbury with riesling and rosé, but there’s also an eclectic mix of alternative wines on the list. Bailey says, “As a sommelier, I always hope for refreshing semillon and riesling plus dry rosé to be big in summer, and all of these will make a large appearance on the Aylesbury wine lists. “I think bellinis will be making an appearance soon – we have had quite a few requests. How can you go past fresh fruit and bubbles on a warm, sunny day?” Dobbs, who has just opened Os Kitchen and Wine Bar with Italian-influenced food and wine list recommends “anything from Puglia, particularly falanghina”. “It is the ultimate summer-food wine. Think apricots and lime with great textural mouthfeel. It just screams antipasto, grilled scallops, cured meats. “With the arrival of spring and summer imminent, the list (of wines) by the glass is becoming lighter and fresher and in line with our food menu.” \

Sarah Ward \ “I do enjoy a negroni on a hot summer’s day. And if I can get my hands on a bottle of ’09 Oakridge 864 Chardonnay this summer, I will be very happy.” The Oakridge has long since sold out, but here’s Ward’s negroni recipe: “Equal parts (30ml) of Campari, sweet vermouth, and gin. A good-quality sweet vermouth like Antica Formula makes a difference. Build the drink on ice in the glass – big blocks of ice don’t water the drink down too much. Top with an orange rind garnish and enjoy.”

Really pretty aromas are on show here, with cherry, raspberry, funky forest-floor notes, mint and smoky oak. It tastes of dark and red cherries, spice, strawberry along with a nice savoury component. There’s sweet/sour balance to flavours that I really enjoy. In short, it’s delicious. It’s even across the palate and beautifully structured with smooth, silky texture and drying, powder-fine tannins. It finishes with long strawberry and sour-cherry notes.

Here’s a nice, cheap alternative to the power and passionfruit of Marlborough sav blanc. It comes from the south of France near Carcassonne at the foothills of the Pyrenees. Bright but not overt aromas of tropical fruit, apple, melon and a hint of herbaceousness lead to good intensity on the palate with nice grassy, lemon and mineral flavours. Has a smooth texture in the mouth, but it’s still light, bright and zippy. Length is pretty good, too, with a lemon and mineral finish.

If drinkability is the measure of a good rosé, this rates highly. A bottle didn’t last long at our place on a recent hot day. Made from tempranillo grapes, this is perfumed and floral, with aromas and flavours of cherry, redcurrant, strawberry and cream, dried herbs and orange citrus. With a creamy, silky texture and dry, crisp acidity it’s both sensual and refreshing. A tasty finish of red berries and citrus juice and slightly bitter (in a good way) pith will keep drawing you back.

I got to taste one of two bottles brought into the country before the shipment arrives at the end of the month. It’s insanely floral, with blossom, apricots, rose petals, spice and clingstone peaches. Flavours of stonefruit, lemon juice and zest mix with a briney, slatey minerality and a suggestion of dried herb. It’s textural but dry and with refreshing acidity. It finishes with intense stonefruit and lemon pith flavours.

Having $10 million to give away is a gift that not only benefits the recipients of Harold Mitchell’s money, but still rewards Mitchell himself. Peter WilMotH drops in on the man whose autobiography he helped to write.

Harold MitcHell

is one of the great figures in Melbourne life, a classic self-made man, someone who loves where he is but never forgot where he came from, a man who never took for granted one day of his life. Maybe that’s because he has, at various stages, struggled with alcohol and weight. He knew both were bad for him, and he fixed them both (the alcohol at 23, the weight much later, in 2008, a journey I was privileged to witness). He is, simply, a force to be reckoned with; one of the most positive people I know. In the 30 or so meetings I had with him as we worked on his autobiography in 2008 I never saw him less than cheerful; I never saw him agitated; I never heard a sharp word; I never saw him treat the people who worked for him with anything less than respect and affection. I always looked forward to seeing him, because I knew that a) there’d be a laugh and b) we’d get the job done. What more could a biographer ask? At the time Mitchell weighed a hefty 150 kilograms (he was 165 kilograms at his largest). During our project he began preparations for lapband surgery. One day I arrived and everyone in the office was sitting around the board table enjoying a salad lunch. After a final lap of his favourite restaurants – including Pellegrinis in the city, Jim’s Greek Tavern in Collingwood and Centro in South Melbourne – Mitchell had the surgery. He is now 90 kilograms. Keeping the weight off has, he says, been easy. It involved a similar commitment to that undertaken at the age of 23 to never again have an alcoholic drink. “Once you concentrate on any problem you can solve almost anything. It’s like that with alcohol. How do you start to fix yourself as an alcoholic? Firstly recognise that you are one. That’s the biggest part of it. You can work through most anything in life.” He might be half the man he used to be in the weight department, but when I dropped in for an interview it was the same Harold. Not being one to stand on ceremony – he is more interested in what’s being said than where it’s being said – when I walk into his South Melbourne office he’s sitting in one of the big red chairs in the reception area from where he greets me. We never make it to his office. Instead, we’ll talk here. And why not? It was good enough the week before for one of Australia’s most powerful business figures who sat with Mitchell in this very reception area talking about business, philosophy and the vagaries of life. Mitchell is interested in what others say, which just might be a clue to his success. And what a success it’s been. Born in the tiny West Gippsland town of Trafalgar where his father was a sawmiller, Mitchell took the train to Melbourne aged 16 to work in an advertising agency. All he had with him was a suitcase full of clothes and books and a big hunk of ambition. He learnt quickly, worked hard and in 1976 started a media-buying company, Mitchell and Partners, which helped clients direct their advertising dollars. Last year Mitchell sold Mitchell Communication Group (MCG) for $363 million to the British advertising giant Aegis while becoming chairman at the new combined company, called Aegis Media Pacific. At 69, Mitchell remains deeply involved in the professional world he entered with just $2000 to his name. Many years later he faced a problem the 16-year-old Harold probably never would have envisaged: what to do with $10 million he’d made literally overnight in 1999. “In 1999 I believed that the internet was going to be a powerful medium and, of course, that’s what it became,” he explains. “I started emitch, floated it as a public company, was assisted by Michael Kroger, the merchant banker, and on day one, as it launched, found that I’d made $11.2 million in cash and I thought, ‘That’s a lot of money. What should I do with it?’. Firstly I found that it would be severely taxed and I thought that’s probably not doing the best thing. I paid the taxes, of course. It was put to me by my accountant at the time … ‘Why don’t we give it away?’. And so we did. We established the Harold Mitchell Foundation with $10 million in it.” 12 The weekly review \ NOVEMbEr 23, 2011

The foundation, which launched in early 2000, directed the money to health and the arts, because both “change the way you live”, Mitchell says. “The idea was not unique, in that I saw that the Felton Bequest had, more than 100 years earlier, done exactly the same thing and I saw the incredible effect that it had, particularly in the arts. So we did the same thing.” Among the 150 projects the foundation has helped fund is a program aimed at eradicating trachoma among indigenous communities. As well, he says, “each year we give support for up to 20 of Victoria’s most outstanding medical postgraduates to travel the world. We see some of these young medical scientists who will be among the best in the world.” Among the arts projects the foundation has supported is the theatre group Somebody’s Daughter, which was established for young people who had spent time in institutions and prison. Over 12 years, the foundation has given away $6 million. Mitchell gains great satisfaction from knowing the money

“You can be happy or unhappy. I choose happy.” is helping people. “I was sitting one night at a performance of Somebody’s Daughter Theatre Company … and a young girl was giving the performance of her life on the stage. Just in front of me someone lent over to me and said, ‘You see the young girl actress? She was a heroin addict and eight weeks ago she was about to die, and there she is with a reason to live’.” Mitchell says everyone can contribute in helping others. “We can’t look to government for leadership; we should expect that there should be leadership in every level – that includes private individuals, business and government. You can’t say, ‘Why aren’t they doing something?’. I always say, ‘We are they’. “We’ve developed into the eighth-richest nation in the world with less than 2 per cent of the world’s population,” he says. “We are at a good place (but) we sometimes don’t know it because we don’t travel enough … This is the century that belongs to the six-hour time zone that we live in, which is Asia. “It’s the greatest opportunity that people in Australia will ever have in their lifetime … We need to make sure that our community is good within Australia and realise the fact that we have more Third World countries near our shores than any other First World country in the world – Fiji, Solomon Islands, Timor-Leste … We have two thirds of the world’s poor in our part of the world and so we need to ensure that this is a good part of the world. We can only do that by caring and sharing. “We’re returning to relative wealth and what has to go with that is a great sense of leadership and responsibility. And so that’s where my life is. You can’t take it with you.” The foundation was run for several years by Mitchell’s daughter, Amanda, who oversaw and signed off on the many submissions it received. Mitchell now sees a more hands-on role for himself. “Now I have got a little bit more time I will probably return to become chairman of it for a time and hope that a member of my family at another time will follow me.” Earlier this year Arts Minister Simon Crean asked Mitchell

to oversee a review of philanthropy in the arts, soon due for completion. A veteran of arts company boards, Mitchell is determined to see an increase in corporate and private giving. He says social researcher Hugh Mackay had presented an important piece of research as part of the review. “He (Mackay) argues very wisely that the next generation, the so-called Generation Y – generally people between 20 and 40 – are going to have a greater feeling of philanthropy than many other generations simply because they’re comfortable in themselves,” Mitchell says. “They don’t feel, as (generations) before them do, that they have to save as much money as they can for, one, their old age, and two, for their children. This group is sufficiently confident in themselves that they know their parents can look after themselves … They’ve got a sense of responsibility. They want to make a difference. They’re quite prepared to travel to Third World countries and help, as well as just giving money.” I asked Mitchell about his passions. “Well of course I am passionate about everything,” he says. “You can choose to be unhappy or happy. I choose to be happy. Every day. “I once said, ‘Usually there are 10 things going on in my life. Two are bad but eight are good. So I concentrate on the eight.” Mitchell is an easy conversationalist with a view on practically everything. As such I wanted to ask what he thought of the comments by 774’s Jon Faine after Steve Jobs’ death that he couldn’t understand what the fuss was about. “I can’t believe this,” Faine told his listeners. “He’s been eulogised here as if the world had lost one of its great visionaries.” Well, hadn’t it? “America reinvented itself and its great wealth because of Steve Jobs and others,” Mitchell says. “Anyone who would think (the devices Jobs helped develop) were misguided and strange little machines just doesn’t understand what the big world is doing. Jon (Faine) is a bit of a worry sometimes.” Mitchell explains how his business – media buying – was revolutionised by technology. “The digital world has meant the world is now made up of individuals. We can pick them out one by one. We can relate to them absolutely individually and, importantly, they can respond. This is the greatest change we’ll have seen in our lifetime. In a sense the communication is probably as big a change as has happened since the printing press. “It’s an exciting time to be alive. I would like to live for another 100 years because of the incredible things that are going to happen. Because we can do anything from this city. I built a business sitting in an office in South Melbourne which became one of the best businesses of its kind in the world. We can do it because of the techniques of communication and the growth of the Asian markets.” How does Mitchell reflect on selling his business? “I chose to sell our business to a large world firm. I further chose to take some cash but mostly shares and I emerged as the second-biggest shareholder worldwide and on the board of one of the major communication companies in the world. And so it’s good to know I have been able to deliver 600 people who work for our company into a world platform.” Mitchell’s passion for his city is indisputable, as is his status within it. In August he was named Melburnian of the year. “This city can be a hero to the world because of the inventiveness of its people.” He loves Melbourne, but his passion and energy extend to everything else around him. I can understand Simon Crean calling on Mitchell to chair the arts review. What’s that saying? If you want a job done, ask a busy person. \

BOOKS\ LET A TRAVEL BOOK TAKE YOU AWAY, SUGGESTS CORRIE PERKIN mid-1980s, Melbourne couple Louise IN THE and Martyn Myer visited the Wanaka region of New Zealand’s South Island. Keen skiers and

bushwalkers, they immediately fell in love with the area and a few years later they bought a plot of land. Their first objective was to plant more than 10,000 trees. Once the landscaping was done, it was time to think about what kind of lodge they might build. Fifteen years ago the dream of Whare Kea Lodge (named after the area’s native mountain parrot, the kea) became a reality. The Myers’ lodge, which includes a restaurant, accommodation for 12 guests and a chalet further up the mountains, is now a member of the Paris-based Relais & Chateaux chain of superior boutique hotels and restaurants. It is a glamorous getaway, but Whare Kea remains deeply connected to its surrounding landscape and the local community. It is also still very much a part of the Myer family’s life. Wanaka: Earth to Heaven at Whare Kea is their tribute to the area; as the Myers write in the foreword, “this book tries to put into words – and, more importantly, photos – the story of our enjoyment of the Whare Kea Lodge and chalet and visiting the Southern Alps around Wanaka.’’ The Myers commissioned this sumptuous coffee-table book, written by New Zealand journalist Michal McKay with photographs by Auckland-based Kieran Scott, and Random House in Australia has picked it up for local distribution. The book is divided into the four seasons’ pleasures

and produce, as well as recipes created by Whare Kea chef James Stapley. The chapter on spring, for example, includes an overview of the fishing, horse riding, tramping and mountaineering options, with profiles on the local experts in these fields. Spring recipes from Stapley’s kitchen feature local produce and include chicken, duck and chestnut terrine, beetroot-cured salmon with fennel and blood orange salad, and quince paste and quince jelly with a selection of local cheeses.

God’s own country: Whare Kea Lodge & Chalet in Wanaka, is named after the area’s mountain parrot, the kea. (COURTESY OF THE LODGE)

Winter, meanwhile, is all about skiing, the snow, and comfort food such as rabbit pie and chocolate brownies. Wanaka represents a new-ish kind of travel book that weaves beautiful photographs with memoir and stories, food, wine and important travel information. Other recent examples by local authors include Melbourne writer Dee Nolan’s 2010 superbly produced A Food Lover’s Pilgrimage to Santiago, At My French Table by Jane Webster, My Amalfi Coast by Amanda Tabberer, Turquoise: A Chef’s Travels in Turkey by Greg and Lucy Malouf, Italian Joy by Carla Coulson and A Family In Paris by Jane Paech. The key to these big hardbacks is the personal experience and the authors’ endorsements of a city, a region or a country. Because we live so far away from the rest of the world, Australians have to spend a lot of money to travel internationally; the observations and tips of others, therefore, are essential for our research. These books tick many info and pleasure boxes and, as such, make terrific Christmas and birthday gifts for the traveller in your life. \

travel books SHANNON BENNETT’S FRANCE by Shannon Bennett » $44.99 (Miegunyah Press)

THE RIVER THAMES by Derry Brabbs » $75 (Frances Lincoln)

While researching his 2009 shoppers’ and foodies’ guide to Paris, Melbourne chef Shannon Bennett spent time in the French capital, visiting old haunts and discovering new ones. Paris: A Personal Guide To The City’s Best became a bestseller and has encouraged Bennett to revisit the country and pay homage to its best restaurants. The book is divided according to the regions of France and includes restaurant, café, shop and market information, as well as Bennett’s own recipes. It is a little gem (unlike Bennett’s 2010 book New York, which we thought was a bit lacklustre) and a must for anyone planning a trip to France and who values a good dining experience. \

British photographer Derry Brabbs has written – and photographed – this love letter to the Thames, Britain’s most important river. From its source just south-west of Cirencester in the west, the river flows through Oxford, Henley, Windsor, Hampton Court, Richmond, central London, Greenwich and out to Southend-on-Sea. Brabbs traces its journey and, with the help of maps and colour photos, we can see the river’s many moods, as well as learn more about the historical events that have taken place on its banks. No recipes or “places to stay” in this one, but we’re certain that Anglophiles will love it. \

BALI: THE FOOD OF MY ISLAND HOME by Janet De Neefe » $59.99 (Plum)

When I opened our little shop in 2009 I was surprised to note how few pictorially driven publications about Bali existed in the marketplace. For two years we’ve been waiting for the arrival of a book like this, by Australian-born, Bali local Janet De Neefe. Finally, we have a large-format book (sadly, a soft cover) that captures the island’s culinary spirit. De Neefe, the founder of the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival and owner of three Bali restaurants, has turned to her recipe collection and local produce for inspiration. She has also included little stories about events such as the Ubud market and various dishes, including nasi bakar, and how to use the coconut in cooking. \

HOUSES OF THE LAKE DISTRICT by Christopher Holliday » $60 (Frances Lincoln)

When it comes to evocative and inspiring “places to go” books, the Brits play it safe. Houses of the Lake District is not a memoir and it doesn’t feature any recipes. But we decided to include it because anyone planning a trip to this part of northern England will find it works as a highly informative pre-holiday guide, and – upon return – a handsome souvenir. Gardening writer Christopher Holliday focuses on 21 houses and castles in the Cumbria region, and the people who live in them. Complementing this architectural narrative is an historical rundown of the area, which travellers will find most interesting. Houses under the microscope include Sizergh Castle, the core of which dates back to the 14th century, the Elizabethan grandeur of Levens Hall and Beatrix Potter’s Stoney Lane. \

film THE IDES OF MARCH \ OpEnS nOvEMbER 24, RATED M

Ryan Gosling brings his minimalist charm to the world of dirty politics in this black drama from George Clooney. Gosling plays idealistic staffer Stephen, working for the charismatic, too-good-to-be-true Mike Morris (Clooney), who is busy vying for the Democratic presidential nomination. Unlike his cynical boss (Philip Seymour Hoffman), Stephen still believes the right president can make a difference, but a moment of professional clumsiness sees him forced to question his motives. It’s hard to explain what makes Gosling so compelling when he seems to do so little. Certainly, for all Clooney’s “up to 11â€? Ăźber-charm, it’s the young upstart who keeps us transfixed as he spirals ever further from his morals. Stephen’s transformation from passionate idealist to Machiavellian cynic occurs behind closed doors, but Gosling ensures we catch the moment when the lights go out. A flawless cast remains the best reason to buy a ticket, given a plot that twists and turns at its leisure and never truly shocks. Political machinations have been sketched more brutally elsewhere and events here play out with a terrible inevitability. Perhaps the biggest problem is how pale the film’s deceptions appear compared to the real thing. Clearly we’re supposed to be astonished by Morris’ moral shortcomings, but real-life candidate Herman Cain has been busy stealing his thunder in the run up to Republican nominations. It’s a tight, competent and brilliantly acted thriller, but reality still has the edge when it comes to genuine scares. \

music 936 \ pEAkIng LIgHTS (dOMInO) The second LP from this Wisconsin husband-and-wife duo is hazed in good weather. You can practically smell the sunscreen on these eight tracks, which sprawl languorously in a dubby mix of psychedelic synths and druggy bass. Fusing electro, tribal rhythms and jangling guitars, standout tracks Birds of Paradise and All the Sun that Shines are guaranteed to raise your temperature (in a very chilled fashion, of course). There are echoes throughout of Ladytron’s glassy kraut-pop, but the arrangements here feel more organic, more romantic and, yes, far more summery. Hypnotic and immersive, 936 promises to be an irresistible soundtrack to the warm months ahead. \

This new eight-part documentary series brings to your living room… a living room. As the intro tells us, there’s nothing special about the Cardamones, except for the 35 remote-controlled cameras fitted in their house. We get to perch from their ceilings and discover exactly what goes on inside an ordinary Melbourne home. Mainly, they watch television. Which is exactly what we’re doing, sat inside our ordinary Melbourne homes. It’s uncanny. Overall, it’s at once as irresistible and as irritating as watching someone else’s home videos. The politics are particularly engaging, if uncomfortable, with mother Josephine a canny player, running small wars of attrition against her recalcitrant husband Angelo. Neither emerges more or less favourable, but more than a few couples will catch themselves in the funfair mirror the pair hold up. It’s hard to know if the show is more or less comfortable if you identify with its stars, but the family appear about as sympathetic as any of us would in such close focus. It isn’t as groundbreaking as Sylvania Waters or as engrossing as more contrived reality fare, but The Family might just provide an addictive alternative to The Slap. Its tiny dramas are far smaller in scale but no less likely to generate debate over who’s to blame. Still, for all that, it’s hard to shake a nagging disappointment as the end credits roll. Perhaps it’s just the sad The but undeniable realisation that our politics are lives aren’t movies after all. On the evidence here, we’re not living particularly grand romances but poorly written, engaging poorly acted and somewhat petty soap operas. \

There are no big names in this local revival, but the script remains as unsettling as ever. Mischievous Randall P. McMurphy finds himself in an asylum after faking insanity to avoid a prison term. His irreverent attitude immediately brings him into conflict with the icy Nurse Ratched, who wields true power within the wards. When McMurphy tries to wake his comrades out of their medicated stupor, he marks himself as a threat to her order, requiring a drastic remedy. \

More women are choosing to manage their own home-building projects, writes EMMa HougHton.

ustom home-builder G.J. Gardner has noticed an interesting phenomenon: Most of the clients who choose to project manage the building of their new home are women. With the support and expertise of the G.J. Gardner staff, they are taking control of projects and doing it for themselves. G.J. Gardner has carved out its niche in the current building market by tailoring its services to clients who are in a position to subdivide big blocks they no longer need, providing competitive prices on building new homes that are no more expensive than renovating and by taking on jobs that other, bigger building groups find too time consuming.

« cliEnt ProfilE \ MEgan lanE Megan Lane is a self-confessed control freak and knew what she wanted to achieve in her new house. She wanted to retain a 50-year-old Japanese maple, incorporate sustainable features, catch the eastern light in the dining area, minimise the sun exposure on the western side and have the freedom to choose her own fittings and appliances. The challenge was finding the right builder to achieve the desired results. After considering three options, Megan decided on G.J. Gardner and has never looked back. Retaining her Japanese maple was a priority. “i call it the tree of wisdom. Many an afternoon has been spent under this tree solving the problems of the world,” Megan explains. “i really wanted to keep this tree. it’s such a beautiful feature but it was in such an awkward position. G.J. Gardner was the one who came up with something that suited my needs. They listened to what i wanted and adjusted the plans to what i needed and what suited the block.” After considering a renovation of her Ashwood house, Megan decided that demolishing and rebuilding with G.J. Gardner was more cost effective. She was particularly keen to integrate sustainability features such as thermal control and capturing passive heating and cooling. After several meetings with G.J. Gardner’s sales staff, Megan felt confident to proceed. “They were happy to talk about my ideas and made some great recommendations. What i could see when they came back with the last design was that they really captured the essence that i needed in the house.” Now that the design is complete and at the planning approval stage, Megan is hoping to be in the new house by Christmas next year. She is happy with the results thus far. “The final design makes maximum use of the real feature of the property, which is the tree. They actually saw the value in retaining it. The difference between G.J. Gardner and the others was that they actually listened to what i wanted and made an effort to factor it in. it’s nice to deal with people who live up to their motto.” As a full-time professional with a lot on her plate, Megan felt it was important to feel to be in the hands of experts who could translate her ideas into a building reality. “i enjoyed every second of doing the design. i could pick up the phone any time, they don’t mind high-maintenance types like me. These are people who are really interested in giving me a fabulous outcome, in making me really happy.” \ NOVEMbEr 23, 2011 \ The weekly review 19

serenity noW t

he property market may be soft, but you wouldn’t know it along Eltham’s Zig Zag Road. Big SOLD signs have recently been slapped across advertising boards out the front of No.77, a three-bedroom ’70s house on a big garden block, and No.84, a renovated four-bedroom, four-car property with a pool. Now it’s the turn of No.90 to bring in the bidders. Much like its neighbours, this property was built in the 1970s and sits on a 1600-square metre block, which even by Eltham’s standards is big. What sets it apart, however, is the vicinity to the secluded reserve at the end of the street. A dense, tree-cloaked stretch of land not only separates the two sections of Zig Zag Road, it also provides its immediate neighbours with a sense of serenity that is hard to match. This property also takes advantage of its elevated position by offering views of bush-cloaked hills stretching away from the manicured back lawn. Out here you can only really see the rooftops of a handful of neighbours. While sitting back under the covered patio, perhaps waiting for the snags to cook on the built-in barbecue, you can’t help but feel completely hidden away from it all. It’s almost as if you’re nestled on the edge of the actual countryside, not at all just a short drive from Eltham’s main drag. The expansive block, which includes tiered levels of lawn, and the hidden location are enough to bring in the punters. But what they will also discover is a smartly maintained, cleverly zoned and beautifully presented family residence. In typical Eltham fashion, the property blends the natural tones of timber and exposed brick inside and out. It also combines the texture of slate

floors with stained-timber boards and plush carpets. But what impresses most as you walk in is not any tangible material but the natural light that soaks the front rooms through the large picture windows. The sense of light and space is magnified by the soaring cathedral ceilings. With your neck craned upwards, you will also notice the mezzanine-level main bedroom, perched above the front lounge and its rustic log fireplace. Accessed via stairs off the entrance, this is a sort of tree house for grown-ups and is open to the space below. It has a renovated en suite with corner spa and a good-sized walk-in wardrobe. Downstairs, the split-level floor plan includes a sunken dining space with a bar, so entertaining need not be restricted to outdoors. Cook up a storm in the nearby kitchen, which has includes a large stone island bench, Bosch dishwasher and commercial-grade Falcon dual oven and range, which would retail for about $7000. The country theme of the kitchen is complemented by pretty stained-glass windows that look out to the rock feature and waterfall by the terrace. The family hub, although large, does not complete this property’s living space. Double doors at the back of the house lead to a large rumpus room, again with high, vaulted ceilings. This is an ideal kids’ retreat, allowing mum and dad to have the front lounge to themselves. The kids’ accommodation is also well zoned, with two big bedrooms sharing a sleek family bathroom with separate toilet. The fourth bedroom is more modest in size and would be the ideal nursery or office. The child who draws the longest straw gets the room with view. Like the back terrace, it looks out to a typical Eltham scene of beautiful rolling hills covered in trees. \

LIAM CARTER finds a house on a block that, even by Eltham standards, is big ‌ and the house is also big on features designed for comfortable family living.

where to live \ we love it

In the 1920s, the Victorian government offered low-interest loans to help World War I veterans and low-income earners pursue the great Australian dream of owning a home. Buyers were to choose from a list of designs, the most popular being what today is known as the State Bank California bungalow. Among the 12,000 houses built during this scheme was the charming 1923 residence at 41 Miles Street. The original owner is said to have ordered a template with the all the added extras. That’s why this house has a deep front verandah and a gorgeous leadlight bay window off the lounge. This beautiful reception room also includes high, decorative ceilings and plush carpets. Nearby is the dining room, which, thanks to the log

fireplace, is the vendors’ favourite place during winter. Summer months are spent outside on the rear terrace, which overlooks a large back lawn bound by lush garden beds. Established trees offer plenty of shade. You can watch the kids play from inside the family hub, which is served by a renovated kitchen with jarrah benchtops and a walkin pantry. This new wing of the house is a sympathetic addition to the original, with timber-framed, double-hung windows and deco-inspired wall lights. The four bedrooms share two family bathrooms. The street-facing main bedroom has views of the park across the road. Sitting near the top of a dead-end street, the 707-square metre property is ideal for families with young children. \ liam carter

Move in to this house and jump into the pool. It’s as simple as that for the buyers of this fully renovated four-bedroom property. Despite its older vintage, no work is required here. The timber-lined cathedral ceilings and exposed-brick surrounds of the new gas fireplace are charming reminders of yesteryear, but most of the house has undergone a beautiful transformation. Polished hardwood boards contrast with clean white lines throughout the living and meals areas. The new kitchen shows off stainless steel appliances, tiled splashback and ample bench space. The stunning contemporary bathrooms look just like they should be in a luxury hotel. The five-star feel continues downstairs in the tiled rumpus and bar area, which opens to the pool and spa. The main bedroom also has a private balcony with garden views. Accommodation is well zoned with one bedroom downstairs by the rumpus and double garage, and three up top. The study could easily become a fifth bedroom. \ liam carter

Built 15 years ago as one of three, this is much more than a townhouse. Not only is it completely detached from its neighbours, it faces the street, has its own entry and an uninterrupted north-facing outlook. The property has been sold only once before and is in impeccable condition. Befitting its park-like surrounds, there is a lush garden out front, created by the current owners. Inside, the lower level comprises two living spaces, one either side of the entrance. The open-plan family and meals area and kitchen has large windows. The nearby lounge is a cosier room, ideal for snuggling down on the couch. A study with fitted shelves and cupboards is behind the lounge and could become a fourth bedroom. There is also a powder room downstairs. Up top, two bedrooms share a central family bathroom and the main bedroom has its own en suite. They all have built-in wardrobes, fans and vaulted ceilings. Because of the pitch of the roof, there is also ample under-roof storage off every room. The property includes a single-car garage. \ liam carter

Within moments of wandering around this three-bedroom house, a “homely” feel overwhelms you. Set in a quiet court, it has been occupied for 38 years by the current owners, who have generated a sense of warmth. The pale-peach and pink colour scheme and cream carpet and walls allows you to accessorise any way you wish. The living area is a great place to get together with friends for a coffee. If something more formal is preferred, then relocate to the kitchen/meals area. The kitchen has been updated and is near the family room, which has sliding doors that open onto an elevated and undercover deck. Enjoy brunch with the family on weekends and, if it gets chilly, roll down the café-style blinds. All three bedrooms are on one side of the house and have built-in wardrobes. They share the taupe-tiled family bathroom. The property has gas heating, evaporative cooling and ample storage. It is close to the Warringal parklands and the shopping precinct. \ bianca villarosa

Morrison KlEEMan, 9431 2444 25 Montpelier Drive Price: $850,000 + auction: November 26 at 1pm

If you’re feeling crafty and have always wanted to return home to your very own country retreat that overlooks the Dandenongs, then settle in Montpelier Drive. Set on a 0.4-hectare block and offering a great sense of freedom, all the property needs are your own bright ideas to complete the project. The house was built in the 1970s and has undergone a couple of renovations – but the rest is up to you. The exposed brickwork and timber throughout provides the ideal canvas. A lounge at the entrance and a potential kitchen, which has been plumbed and wired, is ready to go. If you’re happy with where the kitchen is, dine nearby in the meals area. Doors lead out to the large, tiered backyard and a water feature. During summer, cool down in the pool while surrounded by an abundance of native trees and chirping birds. The main bedroom has views of the front garden, a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite. Two more bedrooms share a bathroom. \ bianca villarosa

This traditional, weatherboard house has been well maintained for decades and retains traces of its former glory. The cosy three-bedroom property has been rewired and offers a revamped kitchen and updated bathroom that complements the rest of the interior. The large sunlit lounge is at the front and overlooks the lowmaintenance front garden. It is certainly the perfect place to relax and unwind after a long day. Otherwise, reconvene with the family in the kitchen/meals area. It is down the hallway and opens out to the spacious outdoor dining area and ample lawn space. Enjoy a summer barbecue undercover while the kids kick the footy in the backyard. There’s even plenty of room for dad’s shed. All three bedrooms are at the entrance of the house. One is being used as storage space and two have built-in wardrobes. They all share the central family bathroom. This property has gas heating and is close to Macleod shopping village and transport. \ bianca villarosa

With a charming Cape Cod facade, complete with dormer windows, and a large block, this home has all the elements necessary to make it just what you want. There’s plenty to work with including a huge upstairs rumpus & multipurpose room that could convert to a teenage retreat and you’ll find the kitchen and bathrooms already updated. It would be a shame, but there’s always the possibility that a developer will be lured by the big block to create townhouses (STCA).
