was only half joking the other night when I said, and for them it was not nearly as horrifying a prospect at the launch of a book about arranged marriages, as Sushi thought: their own marriage had been arranged that when you consider the terrible choices and the and, anyway, love wasn’t a thunderbolt – it grew over bad boyfriends we select in our early years – and the time, and it would for her. trauma and tears that follow – and when you then see Sushi, when I met her in the ’90s, was like any your daughters make the same awful mistakes, you modern, educated woman: feisty, opinionated, could do worse than get together with your best funny and in command of her destiny.

This, in modern Britain? the happy I was speaking at the book launch of Well, of course in Britain – and here, and ending Deranged Marriage, written by my old friend elsewhere– and we are naïve if we don’t realise and Age colleague, Sushi Das – a funny and that this and other forms of female subjugation moving memoir of her young life as the daughter still goes on, particularly in the countries from of Indian parents who migrated to Britain and were where these immigrants come. Sushi wants her book determined that she be married off to a “suitable boy” to be seen as the mildest example of a deeply sexist selected by them. It was a prospect that filled her practice. with horror and blighted her young life with constant According to evidence given to a Senate inquiry anxiety. this year into marriage visas, and republished in The Her parents never quite saw it that way.

According to the figures, slightly more than 2 per cent of the 34,025 migrants granted visas in the past six years to marry an Australian were only 17 or 18 at the time, including 28 teenagers who married an Australian twice their age. Another dear friend and colleague, Sarah Ferguson, of ABC TV’s Four Corners also exposed the frightening reality of this practice in Australia, with her report Without Consent, about a young Pakistan-Australian woman who was unwittingly and unwillingly taken back to Pakistan to be married off against her will. The reluctance of the local community here to intervene and help her was for me the most alarming part of the program. Sushi’s life was different: her parents, while raditional, were not coercive, and after a huge struggle she was free to make her own choices, her own mistakes. She is married with a gorgeous daughter, Lotus, and is happy. Her book is a reminder that not everyone gets the happy ending she does; that female subjugation still comes in many forms, even now in contemporary Australia. \

“But at the same time I needed to step away from running then. I knew nothing else and I needed to know what life was like for the normal Joe Blow. I wanted to know what it was like to not have to be so disciplined, to not run every day. “Looking back, I should’ve retired straight after the Olympics in 2000. It wasn’t until three years later though that I realised my heart wasn’t in it. I no longer had the desire to win, or to even try to win any more. “But I definitely struggled after retiring. Oh my God! All of a sudden you wake up after 17 years of this pattern … all my life I was surrounded by people who expected me to run, and I felt safe with that, comfortable with that. And then all of a sudden – what are the expectations? “You really don’t know who you are any more. You still have your name and your family but you are sorting out other relationships around you because people react to your successes, and you wonder if they are reacting to you or to the success you’ve achieved. So you’re figuring out who’s who in the zoo. My family was a constant but when you move out of the only life you’ve known, it’s tricky.” Her family helped Freeman make that transition, along with her husband, James Murch. The couple married in April 2009 and their happiness was capped by the arrival of Ruby, now 15 months old. Her husband and daughter are flying to New York to support her and to fit in a family holiday. “At first, my husband thought it was strange that I set such a monumental task quite soon after having our baby. But he’s been my biggest cheerleader. When I’m training, my husband is usually minding our little girl,” she says. “I’m feeling a little nervous but I’m excited to be a part of the marathon more than anything. It’s the fear of the unknown that gets to me the most. Attempting anything new can be a little daunting.” What will be going through her mind as she’s on the starting line? In her mind’s eye, she says, she’ll visualise the broad smiles of more than 600 children on Palm Island, Queensland. Freeman is running to raise money for the Cathy Freeman Foundation, which supports the education of indigenous children on Palm Island. She hopes to raise $50,000 to provide literacy packs for the kids. “My mother was always telling me ‘don’t ever forget where

t’s a bright but chilly day in Brighton. Catherine Freeman arrives at Brighton Baths right on time for our interview and photo shoot. Windswept and devoid of make-up, she looks fit, healthy and every inch the focused marathon runner. “Is this going to be OK? I don’t worry about my hair and make-up or putting a lot of effort into what I wear. These days it’s what’s available, and what’s clean?” she says, laughing. For the past six months Freeman has had her mind on other things. She has rediscovered the passion she had when she won the 400 metres gold medal at the Sydney Olympics in 2000. She has rediscovered her love of running and is busy juggling caring for the toddler who has changed her life with six hours or so of rigorous training every week. Freeman has become a familiar tracksuited figure around the beachside suburbs she calls home and she recently completed her longest ever run of 30 kilometres. The reason? On November 4, Freeman will be one of thousands of runners under starter’s orders at the New York Marathon. Not a bad effort for a woman who gained 20 kilograms during her pregnancy, who has asthma and was more recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and who had her first child only 15 months ago. “It was a personal thing – triggered by the loss of loved ones in my family. When my stepfather passed away in April this year, well, there’s the process of grief,” she says quietly. “And I think at times like that, it’s important to be aware of what makes you happy, to try and empower yourself with positive things like eating well, exercise, surrounding yourself with people who want to help you. “And a marathon has been on my bucket list since I was a 12-year-old wee lass in my parents’ lounge room in Mackay watching Rob de Castella. I remember being that little girl watching him win the 1982 Commonwealth Games marathon and seeing how tough and tenacious he was. That memory has always been in my head. He was a superhero to me.” But it has been hard work for Freeman, 39, to rediscover her fitness after retiring from competitive sport in 2003. “I had gotten out of the habit of exercising and my food plan wasn’t fantastic. In fact, there wasn’t really any plan,” she says, laughing.

Catherine Freeman feels most at home when she’s running – and out of the spotlight. SARAH MARINoS meets a woman determined to make life better for young, underprivileged Australians.

A

you are from’, and she was born on Palm Island. So I travelled there a lot, but, as a kid, I didn’t realise that Palm Island was the fourth-most disadvantaged community in Australia. It was just where my family lived,” she says. “I’ve always been mindful not to forget where my roots are. I got to the Olympics and enjoyed the success that comes with that, but it’s important to me to feel grounded and attached to my roots. And I just believe all kids should be able to travel a similar journey to me and to have an education and opportunities.” What will she do after she crosses the finishing line? “I’ll be looking for my family,” says Freeman, her face smiling widely at the mere thought of her little girl. “And then I’ll definitely be needing a massage, definitely. I think my husband will be the main caregiver for Ruby that day because I won’t be able to walk.” Twelve years after she lit the Olympic torch in Sydney, Freeman’s instantly recognisable face still attracts attention. Away from the corporate events and the camera she’s quiet and modest and she’s genuinely surprised when asked how she feels being an inspiration to other kids. Just as de Castella left a lasting impression on her as a 12-year-old in Mackay, Freeman is an icon to many other young Australians. “Geez, d’you think? That’s a really good way to look at it. That makes me feel really good about myself,” she says. “It’s hard for me to imagine that.” Once the marathon is behind her, Freeman is looking forward to a return to the routine family life she relishes – shopping, heading to the beach on a sunny day, going to cafés, fitting in the odd pedicure and updating her baby diary, interspersed with business meetings and corporate events. “When the sun’s shining, my husband, daughter and I head to the beach. I like an early night and I like cooking new recipes because I never know what the results are going to be,” she says, laughing. Then she takes a quick look at her watch. It’s lunchtime and Freeman’s got an important date – with a little girl who has stolen the Olympian’s heart. \ smarinos@theweeklyreview.com.au we welcome your feedback @

t first blush Virginia Plain might seem like any other funky CBD dining room offering designer plates and dishy drinks. However, three things mark it apart. The most obvious is its size – a 440-square metre behemoth, bathed in light from three walls of windows, richly timbered and decorated with shiny copper lampshades, translucent stone sconces and a curious triptych featuring bodies spattered in red. A waiter proudly informs us this is “the biggest dining room in the CBD”. That may or may not be so, but the room comfortably seats 150 either at tables or at the 18-metre long bar so, yes, it is quite vast. Then there’s the chef, Andy Harmer, who arrived here via Vue de Monde, where he spent several years as Shannon Bennett’s right-hand man. You don’t need to fret about whether he can cook. The third and possibly most compelling asset of Virginia Plain is the Tuesday-night set menu – four courses, with four matching wines, for $75. Given you could pay almost that much for four vinos at any number of city restaurants, the food’s effectively free. Sort of. My logic’s probably dodgy but I do know great value when I see it. The first outing here is a weekday lunch. I arrive early, weak from hunger, and rush-order a bowl of smoked-ham macaroni and cheese. It arrives promptly – I’m the only customer here at this stage, so the kitchen’s cooking for one – and the comforting bowl of cheesy porky pasta swiftly revives my flagging spirits. There’s some very tame WA truffle in there too that barely distracts from the primary pleasures of mac and cheese. My date appears bang on time and we settle in to entrées of rabbit terrine – suitably rustic in flavour, served on a board with some blackened sourdough and a pickle of swede and apple – and a salad of crisp Jerusalem artichoke slices camouflaged by a spinney of lettuce leaves. A cep purée and some hazelnuts liven up things a little. The lunch special, pan-fried bream with a butter and caper sauce, is crisp on top, luscious in the centre and sits on a pool of mash that leans more towards Paris than Melbourne. It’s thoroughly satisfying fish. The wagyu’s also very good, cooked perfectly medium-rare pink inside with a restrained crust of fat. It comes with a peppy parsley, garlic and butter sauce, a simple cress and fennel salad to one side and some hand-cut chips. Nothing too fancy or Vue de Monde-y – just great ingredients, precise cooking and a sharp sense of what tastes good together. I head back on a Tuesday night for the special menu, keen to test its value. (There’s a slightly less bounteous offer at other times – four courses without wine for $55, or seven for $89.)

Hill reviews virGinia Plain

Virginia Plain is livelier at night with mood lighting and music pumping from the seven boom-box speakers riveted to the ceiling. The restaurant’s named after a Roxy Music tune but tonight the playlist is Patti Smith, Kate Bush and Concrete Blonde. Eclectic. The meal begins with a small sack of warm sourdough, crusty outside and soft inside. The debut dish is announced as “the egg course” – a soft-boiled egg, the saltiness of jamón and fresh parmesan, finely julienned parsnip crisps, a brown-sugar sauce and some picked sorrel. It’s sort of like breakfast, but infinitely better because it comes with wine. Next is the fish course, a modest triangle of pan-fried cod in a lemon thyme-scented bisque, with the crunch of shaved white and green asparagus. It’s rich with marine flavours, lightly scented with the thyme, but the standout ingredient, if you can call it that, is the wine pairing – an unusual rose-gold blend of vermentino and muscat blend from Sardinia, which pulls the plate into focus and makes every mouthful interesting. If that sounds like wine wank, so be it. As a wine match, it’s a stunner and proof that VP’s drinks list is full of pleasant surprises.

Next up, another winner – a Lua Nova em Vinha Velhas, a blend of more than 20 grapes from Portugal’s Douro region. It arrives with the pork course, a trio of cuts – jowl, neck and ear – served with a “crumble” topping of mixed cereals and some braised broccolini. The juicy jowl is fatty, salty, crunchy in parts and the most flavoursome. The slice of rolled neck is on the dry side, the ear is overcooked. Or over-fried, to be more precise – all crackle and no flavour. Still, the wine’s lovely. The menu ends with Harmer’s take on banoffee pie, a glutton’s glassful of caramelised banana, rice crispies, caramelised and semifreddo condensed milk, Genoa sponge (génoise), dulce de leche caramel, some milk foam and, as if that’s not enough of a sugar hit, some chocolate on top. The waitress assures us it’s “awesome” and she’s not wrong. A glass of tokay-style sticky from Rutherglen stalwarts Stanton and Killeen ups the sweet stakes. Fittingly, Lust for Life is playing on the boomboxes. \ khill@theweeklyreview.com.au

\ Peter Wilmoth talks

to antonio CarluCCio

i

haven’t even sat down before Antonio Carluccio is showing me a long piece of wood he “whittled” over the weekend at beachside Lorne. It’s an extraordinary piece of work and I can’t help but look at those big artisan hands that did it, the hands that have made so many beautiful Italian dishes, the hands I have spent so many hours watching chop up stuff. There’s something quite touching about a 75-year-old man on a busy book tour who finds time to whittle, but then Carluccio is one of the most down-to-earth food superstars you will ever meet. But it didn’t take that to convince me to be a fan. I’ve loved watching this man since his late-’90s BBC series Antonio Carluccio’s Southern Italian Feast, a videotape for which I would lunge when, for the kids, it was either Carluccio or the Wiggles. God bless Carluccio, you saved me so many times. I told him this story and he smiled. Carluccio is in Australia to talk about his revealing new memoir, which charts his early life in Italy, the tragic drowning of his 13-year-old brother, his volatile relationship with women, his stellar restaurant, TV and book career and his battle with depression. But first the really happy news: a year ago Carluccio met a woman at a “solo” party, a gathering of eligible singles. “Apparently the woman who was destined to be paired to me, I didn’t like her,” Carluccio says. “I caught the eye of Sabine … We came to talk about funghi – mushrooms. We came to talk in German – she is German living in England for 20 years. She’s 20 years younger than me, an archaeologist. So all the components which are for me the very quality of life – to be able to discuss anything [are here]. I don’t like the one that prepares the shoes for the evening. “So we understood each other immediately and we want the same thing, not to stick together all the time, a little bit of space and freedom. She has three children, grown up. We had a meal with the children. I said to them, ‘Don’t expect me to be your father. I am your friend, not your father’. And they were very happy about that. We didn’t say one bad word, it was very good.” It has been an extraordinary life. In important ways the death of his beloved brother Enrico at age 13 turned out to be a defining moment. After Enrico’s body was brought back from the lake in which he had drowned, Antonio, 10 years older, sat with his brother all night “occasionally wiping his face when some slight discharge leaked from his nose”. “The depression went for quite a while and I discovered the initial depression was for the death of my little brother,” Carluccio says. “We were a family of six. In a family like this the elder takes care of the younger. I said ‘If ever I have a brother, then I would play the father role for him’. And I did. “My family didn’t want to talk about it. It was very, very deep.” Just not mentioned? “My mother and my sister, for the occasion, became Jehovah’s Witnesses, which was pretty bad because they believed they could see him again.” Antonio was never a believer in any church or this possibility. Carluccio has lived in London for 50 years where, for 26, years he ran the Neal Street Restaurant, once owned by his former brother-in-law, Sir Terence Conran (of Habitat and The Conran Shop homewares). At that period of time Carluccio made many TV shows and wrote 13 books about Italian food. In 1998 he opened the first of a chain of Carluccio’s 10 The weekly review \ october 31, 2012

restaurants across Britain. He has been a much-loved figure in English life and loved also in his native Italy, and, with the shows screening on the ABC, in Australia. But his struggle with depression wiped away a lot of the happiness success might have brought. One day a few years ago, at the depths of his battle with the illness, Carluccio got a pair of scissors and, he writes, placed the sharpened end at his chest “where I judged my heart to be and, using my body weight, pushed the blade of the scissor in with as much force as I could muster until I felt the tissues give. I was thinking of nothing at the time except preventing the terrible thoughts I was having going round and round in my head.” The scissors penetrated the pleural cavity close to his lung and Carluccio was rushed to hospital. In an attempt to hide the depression, a statement was issued that he’d had an accident in the kitchen. “That was at the pinnacle,” he says. “And then when I was reading [the newspaper about the incident] I said ‘You don’t need more aggravation than you already have’. I was in the Priory [a treatment centre]. Now everybody knows. And I’m glad that I have done this. It’s a clean sheet. That’s what happened.” Of depression he says: “It’s a black animal. It’s just like a cloud that lets you think everything negative. It doesn’t matter what it is, positive or whatever. I was very successful, and I wasn’t pleased.”

h

e felt relief in writing about depression. “I feel completely liberated. This is also to show to other people they don’t need to be feeling something like this because help is at hand. [The book is] just the spirit of somebody that pours out everything, the truth, nothing but the truth, and I am not worried by that because I am strong enough to be OK. I’ve done it. Now is another page. I’m fine now.” Carluccio wrote the book “to see what pattern my life had taken. Those patterns, they repeat. You don’t see the entire picture but if you put it down on paper then you will see it.” A few years ago, he writes, he felt there was not much left to live for. “At the time, yes, because I was completely disenchanted by everything, even the successes that I had. I worked quite a lot, to build up [the food brand] Carluccio’s. Then all of a sudden I discovered that my person was the brand and, as such, you are used, even by my ex-wife [Priscilla].” He realised too late that in the selling of the Carluccio-branded restaurants and delis in 2005 he had also sold the rights to his name. “I left all of the administration to her [Priscilla], she did the contracts, I trusted her. It’s not that I put the fault on her for what happened, but selling the name which I can’t use – I find it like selling yourself for money.” The many television programs he made for the BBC were early examples of the success relying on the appeal of the presenter. “For me television was a medium to reach other people, not for me to become God,” he says. “Many chefs today believe that without that they are

nothing. They put the accent on TV, TV, TV …” After 26 years running Neal Street, the landlord declined to extend the lease. “I needed another couple of years of the lease and we were talking to the landlord and we were three hours together and they were talking, talking and at the end I lost patience. I said ‘Would you like to give me those two years, yes or no?’,” Carluccio remembers. “[They said] ‘No’. I said the F word, first time in my life. I slammed the door. The people upstairs in the restaurant didn’t know what happened.” He loved running the businesses. “There was inside the company a philosophy which was very near to me, one of being very friendly to the personnel, to give trust to [them], to give chances, in order for them to stay. And they stayed. So it was not exactly family, but almost.” The break-up of Carluccio and Priscilla, his wife of 27 years and the sister of Terence Conran, was not happy. “Through the splitting Priscilla thinks she was very hard done by. She still thinks [that].” Does he get on with Sir Terence? “Never was, really,” he says of that relationship. “Now the daughter of Priscilla who has two children is the only one that gives me the feeling to have grandpa and all of that. But the rest? Wall. Complete wall.” His relationship with women has been explosive and caused two suicide attempts. “It wasn’t women alone, it was again the entire thing, but mostly [women].” His first love was a young woman named Inge, “a splendid girl” who was from Vienna, where Carluccio first travelled outside Italy. “After 50 years we are still corresponding and seeing each other,” he says. “It was love, with a big L. But we were too young. So in order to replace that, that sort of intense love, I went from one disaster after the other, looking for a woman who could be similar but in another form.” He never met that woman, he says [until now]. With his second marriage to Francesca he suspected as early as their wedding night that he’d made a monumental mistake. The marriage lasted seven months. Did he ever question his judgment about women? “Completely,” he says. “This book is to track which is my fault and the fault of others. Usually it is half and half. My expectation, and all of that. I was really frank, I wanted to be frank because it was for me. I could see the

many mistakes that came from wanting something that apparently didn’t exist.” Which is what? “Love and affection, all in one person. This is possible now because I have Sabine.” He didn’t have children. “Inge couldn’t have children. Second marriage lasted only 24 hours. And the third one was 27 years but Priscilla already had children.” Carluccio is 75. “I’m 26 here [points to head], 36 here [points to chest] and then we don’t go further.” He is still making television, with Two Greedy Italians now screening on SBS. “I think it’s very positive for the very fact that the BBC still want me at my age, preferring me to younger people, it means something I can do.” I mention Sir David Attenborough still working at 86 and Carluccio at the top of his game. What does that say about our attitude to age? “It says that forget to be a pensioner, because this would be psychologically a letdown. Everybody says ‘Oooh [I get to] retire’. And it’s very stupid because you die. Slowly, but you die.” So people look forward to retirement, but why? “Exactly. I fortunately can do what I like. On top of that I whittle and keep myself busy with so many things. And this is the joy of life. My soul department is fine. I don’t need to be pre-occupied with that. I don’t need to be worried about that. It’s just fantastic to have a lovely relationship based on truth and not expecting – on both sides – any sort of movement. “The age? The only thing that worries me is the day I couldn’t move. That would be very bad.” What’s his energy level? “It’s very good. If you go to one or two of those events where you have to sign hundreds of books and you are eaten by the people, bite by bite, that’s difficult.” As a little boy, could he have imagined he would have become a very rich man? “Never. I am not very rich, I am fine, but the thing that most brings me joy is the recognition by the Italian government of what I do, even from the British government with the OBE.” He loves visiting Australia, where he makes sure he catches up with friends Stephanie Alexander, Peter Clemenger (“He’s a lovely man”) and Ronnie di Stasio. “For me Di Stasio food is the real, genuine Italian food, without doubt.” Has it been a happy life? “In balance I would say yes. The negative things have made me solid. If you see there’s a pattern and you try not to repeat it, it makes you stronger. And the most important thing is to recognise you have something yourself which could need balancing. Altogether I am very fine.” \ pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au » www.antonio-carluccio.com we welcome your feedback @ www.theweeklyreview.com.au/interview october 31, 2012 \ The weekly review 11

A VISITOR’S COMPANION TO TUDOR ENGLAND by Suzannah Lipscomb » $32.95 (Ebury Press)

THE ICONOCLAST’S GUIDE TO FOODIES by Alexandra Parsons » $19.95 (Dog N Bone)

PICASSO’S TROUSERS by Nicholas Allan » $14.95 (Red Fox)

The popularity of Hilary Mantel’s Booker Prize winners Wolf Hall and Bring up the Bodies, plus the TV series The Tudors has created a thirst for all things 16th-century British. This informative little guide by respected UK historian Suzannah Lipscomb is a must-read for those interested in this period. From the obvious tourist haunts such as the Tower of London and Hampton Court to lesser-known treasures in quiet corners of Kent, Somerset, Devon and Cheshire, this book will enhance your understanding of this vibrant period in history. Ideal for travellers. \

Is there anything more dreary than listening to an obsessive foodie? Wine snobs will just ignore your questions and guzzle the bottle (“more for me!”), but foodies truly feel it is their calling to educate their audiences. The joy of owning a truffle shaver, the importance of telling your guests you have spent the past three days clarifying aspic, the complexities of the cheese platter – these are just some of the culinary pretensions examined in this cute little hardcover. A good Kringle option for the food bore in your life. \

There is a real thirst among many Australian readers for novels set in North America’s deep south. LA-based writer Attica Locke’s new work will not disappoint. Shortlisted for the 2010 Orange Prize for Fiction for her first novel, Black Water Rising, Locke sets her new book in the stately Belle Vie, a restored 19th-century plantation home that now hosts weddings and civil war re-enactment parties. The murder of a nearby sugar plantation migrant worker forces Belle Vie’s manager, Caren Gray, to confront her own family history while also dealing with something sinister in her own midst. \ 12 The weekly review \ october 31, 2012

“A funny and accessible introduction to Picasso and art’’ is how this book describes itself. But Picasso’s Trousers offers some powerful messages about the individual’s right to reject the norm and try something exciting and different. It begins when a young Picasso announces he wants to go to Paris to become an artist. “You can’t do that!’’ his father exclaims, but Picasso goes anyway. Despite a lifetime of being told “you can’t do that!’’, Pablo pursues his dreams and his vision. And what a vision it is. Highly recommended for artistic children aged 4-7. \


Beauty ScriBe \ Dhav NaiDu gets taNNeD up

T

he only way to get a safe, perfect tan is from a bottle, full-stop, amen, say no more. Regardless of the claims of outdoor enthusiasts and tanning advocates, there is no safe way to get a tan from the sun. There are rules for a perfect tan and the punishment for breaking them is the dreaded streaky striped-pumpkin look. I have cajoled and begged professional fake-tanners to spill their secrets, and here are the tanning commandments: Exfoliate – to get an even tan, exfoliate regularly, especially the elbows and knees. Use an oil-free sugar scrub as salt scrubs will react with tanning products. Waxing – if you need to wax or shave, do so at least 24 hours before, as skin can be sensitive when applying product. Product selection – patch-test to see how colour reacts to the skin. How much you perspire and your natural skin tone contributes to how your tan will look. On average it takes about 25ml to cover a full body or, as FakeBake’s Sharon Blockley says, a bottle of cream-based product will provide six to eight full-body applications and each bottle of water-based product will provide about two full-body applications. Always tan three to four days before any occasion to ensure that the colour has settled and any mistake can be adjusted. Avoid going darker than two to three shades than your natural skin tone. Now for the application Put aside a day for your tanning from start to set. Apply product in natural light. Place old sheets or towels on the floor before you begin. It takes about an hour for a full application. Shower in a pH-balanced wash at least 20 minutes before. Samantha Fitzpatrick, from Tuscan Tan, says a pH-balanced wash will stop tan from prematurely fading and also make it last longer. Dry thoroughly and cool down the skin. Use silicone gloves to apply product and to keep palms tan-free. Make sure you cover every inch of your body. Don’t panic if you go over any areas twice – as the experts at St Tropez say, the tan will only become patchy if you miss a bit, not if you double up. Leave knees, elbows, ankles, feet and hands for last and apply a thin layer of moisturiser on knees, ankles and elbows to avoid them getting too much colour. Bend your knees to keep skin taut when applying tanning product. Do not rub the product in but smooth gently to avoid an uneven finish. Try to avoid washing your hands as long as possible – two hours should be the minimum – and use hand sanitisers if need be. Your tan does not get any deeper or last longer by prolonging the developing time. Follow the instructions on the pack. Do not wear deodorant just before, during or immediately after application, and also avoid citrus and soap-based shower gels. Because skin around the nails and between fingers and toes stains easily, apply a thin layer of Vaseline. Don’t shower, shave or exercise for at least six hours, wear dark-coloured, loose-fitting garments. Avoid tight-fitting underwear too. \ dnaidu@theweeklyreview.com.au to read more reviews

REDFERN NOW \ ABC1, Thursday November 1, 8.30pm » www.abc.net.au/ tv/redfernnow

top pick

Put simply, Redfern Now is exactly the kind of television we need on our screens. While Offspring, Packed to the Rafters and their ilk are little more than polished soaps, this feels like proper drama. In part, this is thanks to British writer Jimmy McGovern, who earns his first Australian credit by overseeing the series’ indigenous writers. Certainly, Redfern feels indebted to McGovern’s The Street in structure and tone. The six episodes are self-contained, hard-edged character pieces, linked by shared geography. In the first episode, Grace (Leah Purcell) is caught between two families – her own, and that of her troubled sister. Just as she’s edging out the door on a much-deserved overseas break, Grace is forced to find a new home for her sister’s abandoned children. Her trials make for tense, involving drama. The script feels snappy and honest, approaching tricky emotional territory with frankness and without sentiment. Purcell is wonderful as the complex Grace, expertly balancing tenderness and stubbornness. If the next five episodes match this quality, we’re in for something very special indeed. \

British performer Patrick Wolf is familiar with reinvention. Since releasing his first album at the irritatingly tender age of 18, Wolf has consistently toyed with genre – his early records incorporated elements of classical, electronica and pop. His sartorial taste has proved just as eccentric and mutable. On his debut, he looked every bit the rural waif. On 2007’s The Magic Position, he could have passed for an Oompa Loompa. This time, he seems to have taken style tips from Blackadder’s Baldrick. Given this restlessness, we can understand Wolf using his 10th-anniversary album to tweak his early work. Sundark and Riverlight revisits past triumphs in a stripped-back acoustic fashion, akin to an intimate backroom gig. Thankfully, the songs haven’t traded potency for simplicity. Bluebells might lack the original’s whistles and throbbing electrics but finds a spooky grandeur in piano and accordion. Similarly, The Libertine builds large-scale drama from gypsy strings and rattling drums. While too many artists rely on trickery and technique, Wolf gains depth from shedding a few layers. Freed from weighty production, his voice is an extraordinary, operatic thing. Striking but not showy, it’s a voice of polished wood and dark leather, something like a richer and wilder Dave Gahan (of Depeche Mode). Seductive, beautiful and transportive, this is a birthday gift worth treasuring. \

to his sometimes fraught narrative. Despite this, things remain distinctly murky. We’re clearly supposed to disapprove of Paul’s treatment of resentful, wet Martin, but Arestrup is too charismatic for us to happily boo him off screen. Similarly, interloper Philippe is shown to be something of a cad, but a decent, efficient and talented one. While this sort of complexity is generally admirable, it leaves the tale’s simple ending feeling hurried and messy. Nonetheless, this is an enjoyable, truthful splash of Gallic cinema. \

Victoria Parade

The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital’s entrance is in Gisborne Street but in my mind the hospital is on Victoria Parade. One autumn I was driven there after probing an ear for too long and too curiously with a cotton bud. I was in agony but distracted myself by staring at the trees along Victoria Parade. Stitched to the blue sky with this hemline of red and yellow leaves, green and yellow trams and endless rows of cars, Victoria Parade was more animated than any fashion catwalk. Established in the 1900s, it’s one of our city’s major thoroughfares, starting in West Melbourne and finishing in Abbotsford. \

Royal Parade

Well before the mayor, James Gatehouse, planted the first elm in Collins Street next to Melbourne Town Hall in May 1875, trees had been a major feature of our streets. As early as 1840 there was concern about the deforestation of Melbourne, so trees were planted in our streets in the style of European promenades. In 1853, when the Central Roads Board transformed the bullock track that we know as Royal Parade into a three-chain boulevard, it also lined its carriageways with pines. The council later replaced these with English elms, and today Royal Parade is lined with 400 elms and is recognised for its design as a multi-lane thoroughfare. \

Riversdale Road, Camberwell

One of my favourite views is from the railway line on Riversdale Road looking towards St Dominic’s Church. The Camberwell shopping precinct developed as the population grew. This view with the distinctive boom gates evokes a sense of that early expansion. The road is known for historic homes, such as architect Robin Boyd’s house at 664-666 Riversdale Road. Built in 1946-47, the innovative design had a powerful impact on the next generation of architects. Less known but much loved is Player’s Snooker & Pool Room, which has been in Riversdale Road since 1922. \

BEST OF TOWN & COUNTRY

\ 145 BELLBIRD LANE, KANGAROO GROUND, 3097

A

s private properties go, this one is hard to beat. Set at the end of a long and undulating country lane, automatic gates swing open to reveal a grand estate, where the only sound seems to be the call of the bellbirds or the swooshing of the wedge-tailed eagle that is a regular visitor. There is no passing traffic, no noise and the neighbours, if they are around, are nowhere to be seen. This house, positioned on a level section of the 2.8-hectare (approx) estate, looks as though it has been plucked straight out of Europe. It’s not often that you find a grey-rendered house with grey shutters and walls adorned with climber reminiscent of an Italian villa on Melbourne’s northern fringe. But here it is in Kangaroo Ground in all its glory. There are formal gardens, meticulously maintained gravel paths, perfectly clipped box hedges, a central fountain and a private lake stocked with fish. Yet this house is also very Australian: spectacular views from every room extend towards hills clad in grey-green eucalypts and tracks meander through the bush down to the lower reaches of the property, where it abuts the Chase Reserve. Built in 1990, the house pays homage to Italianate Victorian architecture of the type often seen in the leafy eastern suburbs. Elevated and stately, its broad verandahs wrap around all four sides of the building. Set beneath a corrugated-iron roof, the verandahs are adorned with white cast-iron lace and Victorian-style columns. Bay windows, corner blockwork and a traditional wire fence around the front garden are more references to traditional Victorian design. The massive front door with its panels of brilliantly coloured leadlight windows could be straight from a Victorian mansion in Armadale or Toorak. Inside, wide halls, four-metre ceilings, detailed cornices, and seven ornate fireplaces set a majestic tone. Interiors are mainly pale tones with soft blue-grey carpet in the formal rooms and timber or tiled floors in other areas. The bathrooms are also very grand. How many bathrooms

have large, colourful, arched leadlight windows with hand-painted pictures in them as well as the clawfoot bath and frameless shower? Two large bedrooms with bay windows and a study are off the transverse hall. The main bedroom, which occupies the south-eastern corner of the building, is bathed in natural light from the bay window set around an arched alcove. Light also comes into the room from tall french doors that open to the verandah. From here the views extend across the lawn and garden to the hills on the horizon. In a house where all rooms are large, the living and dining room are the showstoppers. After friends have taken the trip down Bellbird Lane they can enjoy pre-dinner drinks by the warmth of the open fire in the sitting room before dining in style in the “red” dining room. Seating up to 20 people at a large table presents no problem here. This wing of the house also contains the family/meals zone and an open-plan kitchen where extensive timber cabinetry, including a timber island bench, provide a warm and welcoming country atmosphere. An Ilve oven and cooktop are set among the timber cabinets with a cream-tiled splashback and timber shelves for storing cookbooks. French doors lead from the informal living zone to the slate-paved courtyard and entertainment area around the swimming pool. This sheltered and sunny courtyard/ swimming pool and backyard is overlooked from the bedrooms and study. A spa room at the end of the hall has french windows to the verandah and, in a surprise twist, stairs past the laundry at the end of this wing lead to a spacious, carpeted first-floor rumpus room. With its grand spaces, attention to detail, generous accommodation and spectacular surrounds, this property offers the best of town and country only minutes from Eltham and an easy drive to the city. \ maria harris property@theweeklyreview.com.au

we lov e it This 1925 Federation bungalow was part of a large subdivision called the Rosedale Estate. In 1924, £5 was enough for a deposit on one of these blocks that encompassed the Rosedale Nursery. The sales campaign showed fields of roses to entice buyers. Marketing techniques haven’t changed much but this house will sell itself. With a sought-after location, plenty of accommodation, elegant appointments and an award-winning renovation (the Master Builders Association named it Best Renovation/Addition in 2010), it is still a good buy. Unfortunately, today a £5 deposit won’t suffice. The floor plan includes two bedrooms with en suites and walk-in wardrobes, two bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and a study or fifth bedroom. A modern gas fireplace is in the open-plan living area, as is an exposed glass wine cellar. The kitchen is kitted out for a serious cook with two ovens, a built-in microwave and walk-in pantry. Bi-fold doors at the back of the house reveal an undercover entertainment area with built-in stereo, gas heat strips and ceiling fan. A solar-heated pool and spa, lawn and stone water feature wall are in the backyard. \ emma houghton

A creative colour scheme injects colour into every room of this 1960s property. The main hub of the house is the large lounge and dining area, which overlooks the surrounding suburbs. The dining area also opens to a balcony that overlooks the pool. The kitchen and meals area share similar views. Outdoor dining, by the pool, is a must in warmer weather. A paved entertainment area and pool house, with a wet area, is perfect for summer parties. Teens will always have a place to hangout, whether it be in the rumpus room downstairs or a second one upstairs. The main bedroom is also upstairs and has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite. Three more bedrooms are downstairs and have built-in wardrobes. They share a bathroom that follows a pale-blue and coral colour scheme.

This is a perfect small family or first home buyer’s property. It is a cosy and homely residence with plenty of space for kids to run around outside. The kitchen and bathroom have been updated and a fully fenced front yard gives it a smart street presence and another secure playing area for little ones. An terrace over the garage adds to the outdoor spaces. The three carpeted bedrooms run along the south side of the house; the main bedroom has mirrored built-in wardrobes. The updated bathroom has a stylish grey-tiled floor with white surrounds and vanity. The living room has decorative cornices and the original floorboards are a highlight.

Other features are gas ducted heating, a single lock-up garage and underhouse storage. \ emma houghton

Buying a luxury vehicle often heralds an impending midlife crisis, but the purchase of a castle could be a better talking point. Whatever one’s motivation for setting up life at this 10-bedroom, eight-bathroom castle, the current owner Ian Smithwick believes its possibilities are limited only by the next owner’s imagination. An English bricklayer, no doubt with mediaeval imaginings, created this imposing brick monolith in the 1970s. With 80 squares of living space on a property of nearly 4400 square metres it does lend itself to at least partial use as a commercial venture. Currently set up as a bed and breakfast, it might also

serve as a permanent company retreat. Shared family living could also work. It is a kids’ adventure playground that also abuts the Eltham College Reserve. Living in a turret room with en suite, sitting room and balcony – in fact the perfect bridal suite – might be a fairytale come true for some. A commercial kitchen and huge dining room and bar could easily accommodate a couple of von Trapp families. Extensions have been made over the years and further development or updating could be done. However, its rustic-style interiors do seem fitting. The grounds are a peaceful bird sanctuary and the Japanese garden with its flaming red maple trees is a highlight. \ emma houghton

At the end of a gravel road lined with tall trees, this private country retreat is not too far from the Eltham township. Set on two hectares (approx), the property hasn’t changed hands since 1947, and birdsong dominates the peaceful and quiet surrounds, set among Edna Walling-landscaped gardens. High ceilings, floral wallpaper, olive-coloured carpet and walls and timber floors dominate the cosy interior. A formal living/dining area, with an open fireplace, is at the entrance and is near the timber kitchen that joins to a lounge area. It also has an open fireplace, timber floors and looks out to the front and rear gardens. There’s plenty of room to host parties, either outdoors or in the downstairs, bluestone-walled games room. Two adjoining bathrooms service all four bedrooms; one has a skylight and a bathtub. The property also features a workshop, barn with a stable and a plant nursery area. \ BIANCA VILLAROSA

If you’ve been looking for that next project to renovate, this 1960s house offers a great structure to work with. The kitchen has already been updated, leaving you more time to focus on the cosmetics. The bathroom would also benefit from some work. The formal lounge/dining zone is at the entrance. It connects to the tiled casual meals area and kitchen that has Chef and Westinghouse appliances. This area opens to the easy-care backyard, where there’s room for dad’s shed. A paved barbecue space is at the front of the property, tucked in behind the front brick wall, making it a perfect place to dine outdoors on balmy nights. All three bedrooms have cream-coloured carpet and built-in wardrobes. They share a central family bathroom with bathtub and a separate toilet. There’s plenty of off-street parking and the property is close to Greensborough Plaza, Greensborough station and parklands. \ BIANCA VILLAROSA
