Nutritionist, dietitian and Richmond resident Arabella Forge has recently made her debut as a television presenter on Channel Ten’s Love to Share. She discusses the importance of fresh food and the community farmers market.

Free Pussy Riot

I’ve worked in private practice as a dietition and I also write reviews and articles on food. I was on Channel Seven’s Sunday Night program talking about raw milk, and a week or two later the producer from Love to Share rang me and asked me to come in. The offer from Channel Ten came out of the blue. It was a little bit nerve-wracking. I do gardening and we have celebrity chefs come in and work with fresh produce. We talk about recipes, seasonal vegetables and how to work with them. I really think more people should be gardening. It would be great if there were more vegetable gardens in the community; it’s such an untouched resource and it’s a really easy place to grow fruit and vegetables. You gain a much better understanding of the seasons; tomatoes are at their best in the peak of summer and that’s the best time to eat them raw or lightly cooked. Growing your own food also saves you money and there’s less waste, less food miles and you can compost a lot of things into worm food. Food waste is one of the worst things to have in landfill. The farmers’ market in Abbotsford is absolutely fantastic. I’m very passionate about connecting directly with the source of the food. I really hope what we’re doing on the show will encourage more people to rip out their flower beds and replace them with seeds to grow their own patch of food.

Safe, legal and rare Your cover story on Jo Wainer (“Power, corruption and lies”, MTW, October 31) was welcome and timely given the state government apology to birth mothers and adoptees. At 17 I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and it was a forced adoption. I have lived with this grief since 1970 despite a happy reunion with my daughter when she turned 21. Two years later I gave birth to a beautiful boy and was in the happy position to keep him. Seven years after his birth I discovered I was expecting again and felt I could not have this child. Adoption was out of the question so I headed to the abortion clinic in East Melbourne.

I ran the gauntlet of the placard holding people. At the clinic I was put through hours of counselling by experienced staff. They gently led me to the understanding I wanted this child. I walked out knowing I had made a real and considered choice. I was having a baby! She is now 32 and has given me two grandchildren. Had I gone down the path of a backyard abortion there would not have been the wise counsellors to unravel my thinking. I am forever grateful for the work of Bertram and Jo Wainer. Name withheld

Food for thought that’s outside the Square BY ALANA SCHETZER ANIMAL activists have defied new laws that ban people from feeding possums in Carlton North’s Curtain Square. Yarra City Council passed Local Law 3 in July, which bans the feeding of wild animals in public. Animal Active’s campaign director, Rheya Linden, said about 50 volunteers take turns to provide food and

water to the animals Curtain Square every other night. Yarra City Council confirmed no one had been fined yet. Ms Linden said volunteers were not concerned about breaking the council’s law. She said they would continue to care for the possums until the council provided adequate sustenance. ‘‘We won’t walk away from the animals when they’re in need.

‘‘There’s not enough trees and water and there’s irresponsible human behaviour.’’ The council is discussing introducing a controlled feeding program in the square. Ms Linden said volunteers would continue to feed the animals until a ‘‘suitable’’ program was put into effect. In April, the council approved a controversial program to reduce the

number of possums in the square. Contraceptive implants will be inserted into some possums to restrict their breeding. Tree banding, controlled feeding and a tree-planting strategy are also part of the plan. Council officers said the ban was for ‘‘ecological reasons and also to avoid nuisances arising, such as food on the ground creating litter [or] encouraging vermin’’.

Ong wants planning job

Schools shut for teachers’ rally SUPPLIED

BY CHRIS HINGSTON chingston@mmpgroup.com.au HUNDREDS of teachers rallied outside MP Craig Ondarchie’s Northcote electoral office last week to protest for better pay and conditions for the state’s teachers. The industrial action affected 108 public schools in the inner north, and some were closed for half a day. The rally was part of the Australian Education Union’s state branch campaign to demonstrate outside the electoral offices of Coalition MPs across the state. Thirty-two rallies are planned, but they will be suspended during exam times. AEU Victorian deputy president Meredith Peace said while negotiations on working conditions had resumed, the state government was unwilling to budge and talks were “deadlocked”. She said performance pay incentives for teachers would not improve the education system. Too many teachers were also on short-term contracts, with better job security needed to

“attract and retain people in the profession’’, she said. Merri Creek Primary teacher Anthony Atkinson, who attended the rally, said the decision to close his

school for half a day was “not done lightly”. “We are striking for something that in the long term will be good for the profession and good for students.’’ He said performance pay

would create a staffroom that was “anti-teamwork’’. Mr Ondarchie’s spokesman Stuart McCraith said the MP was pleased negotiations with the union had resumed.

KEN Ong has unfinished business in the influential post of City of Melbourne planning chair, and aims to occupy the role. He came under scrutiny during the election after he revealed he had refused a developer’s offer of a discount apartment. Melbourne City councillors were sworn in last week after October local government elections. Cr Ong said he had to meet lord mayor Robert Doyle and the other councillors to discuss the planning portfolio. With Team Doyle winning five of 11 council votes, the lord mayor’s support will be crucial in determining the new council’s planning chair. “I would prefer to continue in that role, but it is not my choice [to make],” Cr Ong said. He said he wanted to see through major plans for the city worked on in his previous term – such as structure plans for areas of North Melbourne, Kensington and Carlton, the ArdenMacaulay, and City North plans. – Chris Hingston

Women take more seats after council polls MEGHAN Hopper is pleased – not only was her campaign to get on Moreland City Council a success, she has been elected to one of the few councils in Victoria with a female majority. Ms Hopper is one of six female councillors elected in Moreland – two more than at the 2008 election when women won four of the 11 council spots. According to the Victorian Local Governance Association, 34 per cent of the state’s councillors are female, compared to 29 per cent after the past local government election. Ms Hopper, elected to Moreland’s South ward, said it was important to see women better represented at all levels of government. She named safety and women’s health as issues she would advocate for. “I am hoping we will see another female Moreland mayor soon,” she said. In Yarra, there was no change in

of nine elected councillors are women, up from just one the previous term. Both were elected to wards that had

previously had male councillors. In the City of Melbourne, the number of women councillors remained the same, at four, but the proportion of female representation declined – with men winning the two additional council seats added for the 2012 election. Across the state 11 councils have a female majority or gender parity. The VLGA’s campaign, Think Women for Local Government, highlights the need for women to stand for their councils. Twenty seven councils have a minimum of 40 per cent female representation, up from 14 councils in 2008. VLGA president Samantha Dunn said that across the state, the spread of elected women was fairly even. ‘‘Where there are wards, in most cases women were elected alongside men and this improves the diversity of local representation,’’ she said. ‘‘About half of the municipalities increased their gender equality and the remaining maintained status quo.’’

Hope Street bus folk meet ONE month after the Hope Street bus route was axed, residents have met in a bid to have it reinstated. Public Transport Victoria stopped the route – Melbourne’s shortest – on September 30, saying it was not sustainable and two other bus services existed nearby. But supporters of the Hope Street bus argue the route is a vital service, providing transport to elderly, less mobile residents. More than 50 residents, many more than 80-years-old, attended a Brunswick Town Hall meeting last week to discuss efforts to reinstate the bus. Peter Storer, 72, has lived on Hope Street for more than 50 years – and used the Hope Street bus for almost as long. “It’s not fair what they’ve done – the government has got to think about the older people who can hardly walk,” he said. Save the Hope Street Bus group spokeswoman Ann Moir said the community was determined to have the bus back on the road. – Chris Hingston


Firefighters approach retirement bridget.fitzgerald@fairfaxmedia.com.au FIREFIGHTERS will reach retirement age in “significant” numbers in the next five years, but the Metropolitan Fire Brigade has no plans to work at attracting more younger people. More than 60 per cent of MFB staff are aged above 45, while only 15 per cent are under 34. Corporate MFB staff make up onesixth of total staff numbers – there are 307 corporate staff and 1738 operations staff. The MFB has acknowledged the workforce age factor. Chief executive Nick Easy said that while a “significant proportion” of the workforce would be eligible for retirement in the next five years, there were no campaigns targeted at attracting recruits or “any specific group of people”. In the past 12 months, the number of MFB staff aged under 25 rose from 19 to 24 and the number of staff aged 25 to 34 rose from 272 to 314.

Mr Easy said the work was physically demanding and the brigade recruited “fit and active” people for the job. “Since 2007, MFB has received more than 8000 applications for recruit firefighters and has employed 407,” he said. South Melbourne firefighter Ken Finn is 52 and has been in the job since 1988. Mr Finn said the fire brigade was like a “paramilitary operation” and needed young guys out in the field and older guys doing the thinking. He said the experience of older firefighters was invaluable, but there were physical limitations. “If you’re in a burning building you don’t want a 55-year-old,” he said. “You want a 25-year-old kicking the door in.” To maintain a pool of experience, Mr Easy said the MFB was continually recruiting. In the past year, 47 new firefighters have graduated and are working at stations around the metropolitan district.

A Confidential Special Meeting of Council will take place at the Richmond Town Hall (333 Bridge Road Richmond) on Tuesday 20 November from 6.30pm.

NEWLY elected councillors and candidates will be forced to reveal campaign donations to the public for the first time in December following law changes. Candidates have 40 days from the October 27 election to disclose how much they received to fund their campaign and who they received the assistance from. Their respective local governments will publish the information 14 days after that date. The new rule will apply to donations of $500 or more in cash or inkind. Previously, councils kept a record of disclosed election campaign donations but they were not made available to public unless they were requested. The state Upper House passed the Local Government Act amendment late last month. It includes changes to how complaints against chief executives are handled and council costs in VCAT hearings into councillor misconduct. – Alana Schetzer

Preferential treatment The ALP is in a huff about Greens Darebin councillor Trent McCarthy’s leg-up to the pariahs of Melbourne’s leftest region. Their fury glowed on Twitter when Labor candidate David Redfearn failed to gain a seat and Liberal Oliver Walsh got in on Green preferences. The Greens and the ALP have been scrapping viciously since the Melbourne state byelection, and as the council has a near majority with four ALP, we can’t foresee much collegiality for the next term. Let the games begin.

Northcote’s trunk call On the record A record is: a) made to be broken; b) an enduring legacy; c) a unique achievement; d) a collection of musical work; e) all of the above. If you guessed ‘e’, you have probably heard of Dean Frenkel, a Melbourne vocal artist who was the Guinness world record holder from 2005 to 2009 for singing the longest note. Frenkel is embarking on a new challenge: to sing the most tones in 30 seconds. He can do 180; he showed us. To see a video, hit our website melbournetimesweekly.com.au. Your average punter wouldn’t get why people like Frenkel strives for Guinness recognition alongside Ilker Yilmaz, the Turkish man who can shoot milk the furthest out of his eye or Supatra Sasuphan, the hairiest teenager. He says: ‘‘There’s no Olympic Games for singing’’. There’s no Nobel Prize either. Frenkel will make his record attempt next year.

Tree-lovers weren’t stumped when it came to penning a slogan protesting at the removal of High Street’s robinia trees. The uprooted tree remains awaited removal last week near the Arthurton Street intersection. But some say the trees’ removal was more a case of euthanasia than murder. Darebin City Council argue the trees’ health was on the decline and their roots were breaking through the planter boxes (also removed). The council intends to replace the trees, but will that placate the plant graffiti writers?

MELBOURNE CITY COUNCIL

Councils denied higher rates right BY ALANA SCHETZER COUNCILS across the state have lost the right to charge differential rates after changes to the Local Government Act were confirmed last month. Councils must now seek approval from Local Government Minister Jeanette Powell to charge some ratepayers more than others based on what type of property or land they own. Current differential rates could be cancelled if the minister does not approve them. Thousands of ratepayers across the state could be affected, depending on the outcome of a six-month consultation process that will determine how the changes will be implemented. Ms Powell’s spokesman Greg Charter said current differential rates could be banned if they did not adhere to soon-to-be formulated guidelines. Darebin and Moreland could be hit hard by the changes.

DECLARATION OF ELECTION RESULTS At the election held on Saturday, 27 October 2012, the following Leadership Team was elected: DOYLE, Robert (Lord Mayor) RILEY, Susan (Deputy Lord Mayor)

Moreland council was the first local government in the state to apply a differential rate on gambling venues, with the extra money spent on programs to counter problem gambling. Darebin charges more for vacant land and pokie machine operators. It is also considering increasing rates on fast-food operators. Darebin corporate and business services acting director Kerrie Jordan said the council would determine its position based on the new guidelines. Victorian Local Governance Association chief executive Maree McPherson said the amendments to the act were a mixture of ‘‘sensible improvements’’ and ‘‘unnecessary interventions’’. She supported the councils’ rights to continue to make decisions on differential rates. ‘‘But we will work with the government to develop the ministerial guidelines on differential rates,’’ she said. The guidelines will be created in time for the 2013-14 budget.

AS WARM weather stirs the snake population, University of Melbourne vets are reminding owners to protect their pets in parks and at home. University vet Mark Davis said emergency services had recently treated several dogs who needed antivenom and critical care including life support after being bitten. “Snakes are now emerging from hibernation, becoming active in the afternoon and early evening which is when they may come into contact with pets,” Dr Davis said. “People can avoid encountering snakes by clearing out potential hideouts such as piles of rubbish and long grass in backyards. ‘‘When out walking, owners should keep their dogs in sight and avoid long grass and waterways.” Dr Davis said owners needed to recognise symptoms such as collapse, seizures, difficulty breathing or walking and vomiting, depending on the snake species. Brown snakes are fre-

‘Avoid encountering snakes by clearing out potential hideouts’ quently seen in Melbourne’s east. If bitten, pets need to be kept still and taken straight to a vet. Owners should call ahead so that the vet can prepare anti-venom. Staffordshire terrier Melon was treated at the university’s veterinary hospital after attacking a snake in his back yard. “Melon stopped breathing and needed anti-venom, resuscitation and life support for three days,” owner Maree Smith said. “Our house backs onto a creek which attracts snakes, and Staffies are so inquisitive and protective that we have to keep a constant eye on them.”

Warming up for a cause Along with her partner Aaron Gitlin and friend Sheehan Perera, Clifton Hill resident Amber Smith (centre) is in training for next month’s City2Sea for a very special reason. Just over a year ago Smith’s five-month-old nephew, Jack, died from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and all three will run in honour of Jack and to raise money for SIDS and Kids. Smith says the death left a huge scar on the family and she hopes the money raised will help fund research to prevent further sudden deaths. The second annual Sunday Age City2Sea is on November 11.

INBRIEF Alleged gunman in custody

The National Broadband Network connecting you to more choice and better value

A man is in custody over an alleged armed robbery at gunpoint in Coburg last week. Police said a witness to the robbery chased the man through the suburb before losing track of him. Brunswick Senior-Sergeant Mick Moloney said a man robbed a TattsLotto outlet on Sydney Road at 1.05pm last Thursday, November 1, with what appeared to be a handgun. The robber then fled west but doubled back across the coles car park to avoid the witness’s pursuit, Mr Moloney said. Police are still seeking information, call Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit crimestoppers.com.au.

Kitted out for graffiti fight Yarra City council is urging residents to pick up a free graffiti removal kit this month as part of its program to remove tags and unsightly graffiti. The council will hand out the kits at a series of workshops that are open to residents

and businesses. The workshops are on November 10 in Fitzroy, November 17 in Richmond and November 24 in Carlton North. For more information, call 9205 5703 or email Sherie.Cursio@yarracity.vic.gov.au.

Safe water campaign says ‘thanks’ to three million BY LISA HIGGINSON A COLLINGWOOD-based social enterprise has launched a campaign to thank three million Australians for their help in providing safe drinking water to developing nations. Four years after its launch, Thankyou Water is celebrating selling three million bottles of water – the profits from which have contributed to 58 projects in Cambodia, Kenya, Myanmar and Sri Lanka – by running the three-week Thankyou Campaign. The organisation, which was founded by a group of RMIT students in 2008, is using Facebook and YouTube to roll out the campaign, which aims to thank those who have bought the water. Managing director Daniel Flynn, 24, said the group wanted to do something different to acknowledge people who had switched to its brand and raise awareness of the initiative. He said the response had been “remarkable”, with more than 1.2 million ‘‘thank-

Thankyou Water managing director Daniel Flynn with the team yous’’ counted in the first week and a half. Thankyou Water has also launched its first national television advert on Channel Nine and Foxtel as part of the drive, using more than $110,000 dollars worth of free time and resources that have been donated to the cause.

COVERSTORY

atherine Deveny is a Melbourne writer known across Australia for declaring that God is bullshit, women who take their husband’s surnames are stupid and that monogamy is a crock. Although we know an awful lot of what Deveny thinks, it’s rare that she gets to tell her own story. Other writers – not to mention politicians, members of the clergy, shock jocks and anyone who owns a Ralph Lauren polo shirt – are keen to paint the 44-yearold mother of three as ‘‘acid-tongued’’, ‘‘controversial’’ and ‘‘provocative’’. But according to the woman herself, she’s just ‘‘singing from her heart’’. ‘‘I’m a mum, a partner, a cyclist, a friend,’’ she says, sipping black tea in her Coburg kitchen. ‘‘Basically, all I try to do in life is get to the best possible place with the least possible damage and I’ll stand up for what I believe in. I could not give a f--k what people think.’’ Words are Deveny’s stock-in-trade, a trade she spruiks through newspaper columns, social media, writing workshops, radio gigs, stand-up comedy, guest spots on ABC’s hugely popular Q&A and, earlier this year, a stint on SBS’s critically acclaimed series Go Back to Where You Came From, on which she caused something of a sensation. Deveny’s latest project is The Happiness Show, her first novel but not her first book. She has three others under her belt: a trilogy of newspaper column best-ofs, It’s Not My Fault They Print Them, Say When and Free to a Good Home. Deveny’s signature style of eye-watering honesty sprinkled with humour is evident throughout her new book. It’s about Lizzie, a Brunswick mother-of-two and stand-up comedian who’s happy with her lot, including her partner, Jim. Days before Christmas, the BBC invites her to London to discuss turning her one-woman show into a television series, which sets her on a collision course with Tom, a man from her past who’s her ‘‘unfinished business’’. Although they’re both in happy relationships, Lizzie and Tom rekindle their love match. Deveny says she wrote the novel 10 years ago and never meant for anyone else to read it, let alone publish it. The story is partially based on her own experiences, but somewhere during the writing process the characters took on lives of their own, she says. ‘‘I wrote it when my son Charlie was born, and I sat over there (pointing to her plush couch), under the ceiling fan, wearing a sarong and breastfeeding a baby. And this book just came to me,” she says. ‘‘I was compelled to keep writing it because I wanted to find out what happened at the end of this story. I’d never written a novel before and I still don’t see myself as a novelist. At the time, I just kind of put it away and didn’t think about it. ‘‘I knew the major publishers were after books about the harried, working mother who has a husband who doesn’t understand her, he can’t be left alone with the kids, she wants to eat ice-cream more than have sex; and that wasn’t my experience and that wasn’t the kind of book I wanted to read at all.’’ The relationship between Lizzie and Tom may be confronting and their actions hurtful, she says, but they are typical of human nature. ‘‘The book is about different forms of love and challenging what’s considered normal when it comes to relationships,’’ she says. Love is complicated, says Deveny. Long-term heterosexual monogamy is not a realistic expectation for many people, she says, and she’s baffled as to why this continues to be defined as ‘‘normal’’. ‘‘The nuclear family started when the life expectancy was 35,” she says. “We’re now talking about 85. How many

C

decisions do you make in your 20s or 30s that are still going to be practical or suitable 20 years later? ‘‘We seem to be coping very well with the fact that technology changes; we’ll probably move suburbs, we’ll probably have lots of different jobs, but we don’t seem to be as good at adapting to reality of what modern relationships truly are.’’ Even before its launch, the book has generated interest from film and television producers, something Deveny is clearly pleased about. But she’s adamant she would never want anyone to change the ending. ‘‘One of the things when you have relationships going on in books is you have a ‘passion and regret it’ moment or they don’t do it and they regret it, but this book is not that,” she says. “This is a very modern love story and I think some people will find it very confronting.’’

Deveny grew up in Reservoir, an D ‘‘awful’’ place where racism, homophobia ‘‘a and a misogyny flourished, she says. ‘‘I an never felt like I fitted in. People weren’t n e happy; they were bitter and had chips h a on their shoulders,” she says. “I wanted o tto o live a life of happiness and not obligation. There were so many things we had obligation to do and I still don’t understand why, because they were not nourishing.’’ Apart from time spent travelling, Deveny has always lived in Melbourne’s inner north. When she moved out of home, she took up residence in several Fitzroy sharehouses, studied cinema and drama at La Trobe University and got her first big break, writing for Tonight Live with Steve Vizard. She’s now settled in Coburg, on the cusp of Brunswick, in a home she shares with her three sons, Dominic, 14, Hugo, 11, and Charlie, nine, boyfriend Anthony Artmann, two boarders and an overly enthusiastic Jack Russell-cross called Archie. Her open-plan kitchen and family room has a warm, lived-in atmosphere, with photos and other personal items

scattered throughout. In one corner are several guitars, used for impromptu family performances. From the back verandah hangs a bright yellow sign that reads ‘‘atheist kibbutz’’. Deveny is fiercely proud, paid-up member of the inner north. In fact, it’s more akin to a love affair. When I ask what she loves about living in the area, she smiles widely as she says: ‘‘The mix of the migrants, the old Aussies, the student households, the psychopaths, the people from the eastern suburbs trying to get a bit of leftie cred. ‘‘I love the way sometimes people will leave things like free lemons out the front of their house for people to take. I love the posters, the graffiti, the radical knitting. It’s not one size fits all. It’s my spiritual home.’’ Deveny mentions the 30,000 who turned out in Brunswick last month to pay their respects to murdered Irish woman Jill Meagher, whose disappearance from Sydney Road on September 22 sent the city into mourning. Adrian Ernest Bayley, a 41-year-old Coburg man, has been charged with her rape and murder. ‘‘We all took to the street in quiet, peaceful protest and then we just went and had a coffee,’’ Deveny says. Deveny became embroiled in an emotional firestorm when she revealed, during the week Meagher went missing, that she had been accosted earlier this year by a man she said matched the description of a man seen in CCTV footage. When contentious News Limited columnist Andrew Bolt wrote about the situation, some claimed he was trying to lay some blame on Deveny for what happened to Meagher because she hadn’t called Crime Stoppers sooner. Deveny calls the run-in ‘‘some stupid little incident with a dickhead’’. It’s not the first time – nor will it be the last – that Bolt and other conservatives, including fellow News Limited columnist Miranda Devine and Sydney radio host Steve Price, have taken aim at Deveny. In fact, there seem to be two types of people – those who admire Deveny and support her for ‘‘sticking it to the man’’ and those who think she’s a onewoman offending machine. In 2009, The Age dropped her as a weekly columnist after she infamously tweeted during a Logies broadcast that she hoped then 11-year-old Bindi Irwin got ‘‘laid’’ and that Rove McManus’s second wife, Tasma, ‘‘doesn’t die too’’. When I tweeted her about writing this story, an account called Pray4Dev started following me. Its profile states: ‘‘Don’t hate Catherine Deveny. Pray for her. A woman and a mother. She deserves our love not our disgust. Pray for her. Pray for her children.’’ There are certain preconceptions of Deveny because of what she writes and says. She is aware of this, but says she ‘‘never lies down in the chalk outline that is drawn for me’’. The freedom to do what she thinks, when she thinks it, is liberating, she says. And she’s very grateful for it. ‘‘The word I get a lot to describe me, which I find odd, is ‘brave’. I don’t see myself as brave in the slightest,” she says. “I have never once tried to provoke or offend. This is just what I think. But people think that if they are provoked or are offended, then I’ve done that to them. No, no, no. Offence isn’t given, it’s taken and more damage is caused by taking offence than by giving it.’’ As I stand and prepare to leave, Deveny ducks out of her living room and a moment later returns with a colourful cotton bag full of self-inking stamps. ‘‘Would you like me to sign your book?’’ she asks. Before I can answer in the affirmative, she grabs an oversized stamp and presses it against the opening page of my book.‘‘You can’t fake passion,’’ it reads. You sure can’t. ■ The Happiness Show is published by Black Inc. The book will be launched by Julian Burnside at the Bella Union Bar at Trades Hall on November 8.

Dead gorgeous A taxidermist finds beauty in mortality. By Alana Schetzer

DeVille is well known in art and design circles not only for her close attention to detail but also for her daring design. Brooches of mice, their eyes replaced by precious stones, are a signature piece; if you see someone wearing one, you know who made it. Rings featuring delicate bones are both gothic and radiant. The National Gallery of Victoria has even added one of her bigger pieces to its collection. DeVille became fascinated with taxidermy at the age of four. ‘‘This is my grandmother’s fox stole,’’ she says, picking up a soft, brown piece that sits on the back on her chair. ‘‘The mouth opens up and I just loved it. I kind of thought it was real; I hadn’t quite grasped about death. ‘‘I had it in my wardrobe and I always used to play dress-ups with it. Most people found them a bit creepy but I always found them beautiful.’’ She moved to Melbourne at 18 and found a retired taxidermist to take her on as an apprentice. A love and respect of animals is at the heart of deVille’s work. Taxidermy is traditionally associated with blood sports and

alking into Julia deVille’s studio in Collingwood is like falling down the rabbit hole. It’s science lab mixed with a scoop of fashion studio and a pinch of Batman’s cave, and it’s where the New Zealand-born taxidermist creates her original artwork and jewellery. The spacious room at the front of deVille’s home could also be described as organised chaos. Work benches are covered in bits of bones, metal, well-worn tools and feathers, with rows of precious stones and crystals hanging from a wall. There are models in mid-work and finished pieces throughout; in a brown box are about half a dozen perfectly formed ducklings. Next to them is an exquisitely taxidermied piglet, curled up as if it’s having a nap. Its delicate pink skin folds are covered in fine hairs. It’s heartbreakingly beautiful. Slightly shy and softly spoken, deVille is petite, with a small tattoo on her left cheekbone. Her physical size is in stark contrast to the big statements she makes with her work.

trophies: a zebra’s head cut off and mounted on a wooden board in a musty billiard room. DeVille works only with animals that have died of natural causes. Several farms donate stillborn pigs and other animals, and some people bring in beloved pets that have passed away. ‘‘I love the deer because they’re so fragile, they’re super skinny and they have crazy long legs and for me they really convey that feeling of innocence and fragility but also beauty, and that’s what I generally try to get out through the work.” Some find deVille’s work confronting. One of her works is a calf hung by its hind legs, its throat slit and strings of glistening pearls pouring out. It’s a statement about the dairy industry’s

treatment of bobby calves, many of which are slaughtered soon after birth. DeVille is a strict vegetarian and her passion for animal rights and ethical farming is unequivocal. She’s careful about where she sources her food, eating eggs only from chickens that are owned by friends and consuming only biodynamic dairy products. ‘‘I’m so staunch in my beliefs and the way I live my life, [but] those people who criticise me probably don’t live their lives to the extent that I do,’’ she says, shrugging her shoulders. ‘‘I don’t try and make things grotesque or upsetting. I want the person to see it and think it’s beautiful and have a positive reaction to it.’’ ■ Details: visit juliadeville.com.

Moon Under Water at the Builders Arms Hotel

Aged pheasant, burdin noir and apple

211 Gertrude Street, Fitzroy Call: 9417 7700 Details: visit buildersarmshotel.com.au Open: Wednesday-Sunday from 6pm; Sunday lunch from noon Highlights: The whole package Lowlight: Rationing those cheese shortbreads

Black rice, red mullet and cuttlefish

Crazy-good cooking Andrew McConnell’s latest venture sets a new benchmark in pub dining. By Kendall Hill he worst thing about reviewing Moon Under Water is deciding where to start. Do you rave about the room, with its nuanced hues of white-on-white, the softly filtered light, the svelte banquettes in lush, dove-grey leather? Or the vintage cabinets with wines and curiosities to conjure a space somewhere between apothecary and wunderkammer? Or the staff, clean-cut and Kennedy-handsome in their tight, white shirts and aprons, who are fully informed on every aspect of the super menu and a superb winelist that’s almost as long as Leviticus, but much more exciting to read? Or do you start with a cheesy biscuit? At Moon Under Water, it’s all about the cheesy biscuit – a gruyère de comté and parmesan shortbread that melts on the tongue and leaves you gagging for another. There appears to be a ration of one morsel per mouth but diners needn’t fret because things only get better. Trust me. No, don’t trust me – trust the inspirational Andrew McConnell (CumulusCutler-Golden Fields) and Josh Murphy, his former head man at Cumulus and The Age’s 2012 Young Chef of the Year, who together have devised a corner-hotel dining experience unlike anything Melbourne has tasted before. The duo already earned its stripes with

T

the bistro here at the 160-year-old Builders Arms Hotel. It opened a few months back and wowed crowds with its earthy eating (whipped cod roe, potted blood pudding) and infectious atmosphere. But Moon Under Water is something else again; a dining room within a dining room that has debuted with a level of confidence and class rare in new restaurants – or any restaurants, for that matter. From Wednesday to Sunday night, it offers a set menu of four courses. It costs $75 and there can be additional surprises – an amuse bouche, a petit four – and often a supplementary course with ultra-seasonal ingredients (Manjimup truffle toast soldiers, when we visit). Our Sunday lunch begins with that biscuit, followed by a crisp lavosh topped with raw tuna and a dollop each of eggplant mash and lemonade fruit, a semi-sweet lemony splodge that cleanses the mouth ahead of the feast. It’s delivered by McConnell himself, who’s very much in evidence greeting tables and generally adding a layer of warmth to the experience. First out of the kitchen is a plate of seared Rottnest Island scallops and buttered cabbage on a smear of squid ink. Frail ribbons of kombu kelp flutter on top and lend a standout, savoury umami-ness. The scallops are sweet

and appealingly browned and the combination overall is perfectly nice, even though the squid ink seems diluted in colour and flavour. Steamed baby leeks arrive atop cow’s curds, the leeks draped with prime Ortiz anchovies cold-smoked in-house, decorated with red sorrel leaves and seasoned with chilli flakes and lemon oil. For a simple-looking preparation, it goes off in the mouth. The anchovies are plump and firm and a tiny slice has a magical effect on the leek and curd. The hint of chilli is genius. Normally I baulk at dust on a menu but the orange “dust” with the slow-cooked duck picks up a citrus theme kindled by candied pomelo slices. The bird is quite bloody but also bloody delicious, in a jus heady with star anise, cinnamon, cloves and pepper. Mustard greens and puréed celeriac relieve the richness. Lunch ends on steamed ginger cake with custard, rhubarb sorbet and a freeze-dried cherry crust. Imagine a ginger-caramel-vanilla-rhubarb love-in with cherry pop-rocks and you’ve got a pretty clear picture of how much fun it is. On my second visit, a Wednesday night, there is a new menu but the same, impeccable everything else. Another biscuit, then another lavosh wafer, this time with curd, a jewel-green mound of diced celery grated with amber-

coloured bottarga (sun-dried mullet roe). It’s the good stuff too, flown in from Sardinia. The menu proper begins with a winter vegetable salad, the highlight of which are crisps of Jerusalem artichoke (sure to take off all over town), then an intriguing plate simply labelled “black rice, red mullet and cuttlefish”. The Italian rice, black by birth but also by virtue of squid ink, is muddled with diced cuttlefish, all of it utterly al dente. A palm-sized mullet fillet with red fishnet skin rests on top. A paprika sauce adds another dimension of flavour, as do wispy, deep-fried fennel fronds. It’s lovely. But then comes the aged pheasant, which blitzes everything before it. The breast is lightly tanned, a plump and juicy chunk of bird, and there’s a medley of leg wrapped in bacon. Both are deftly cooked but really they’re just a vehicle for the jus, which has been reduced to an almost sticky consistency of dense, complex essences enhanced by crumbled islands of boudin noir with hints of calvados and apple, red wine and toasted cereal. We wipe our fingers across the plates until the last drop of sauce has passed our lips. It is far too good to waste. This is crazy-good cooking. Pub dining in Melbourne has a new benchmark and, boy, is it high. ■

very so often, a film arrives packaged in so much critical adulation that it’s hard to see it clearly. Certainly, the new film by Paul Thomas Anderson is beautifully made. Yet many will leave the cinema puzzled as to what all the fuss is about. Freddie Quell (Joaquin Phoenix) is a shellshocked, booze-soaked World War II veteran. When he stows away on a party boat, he meets Lancaster Dodd (Philip Seymour Hoffman), a self-made mystic leading a quasi-religion called The Cause. The two strike up a curious, father/ son-style relationship, even though Quell poses a threat to The Cause’s stability. This relationship forms the crux of the film but, aside from a few blistering scenes, it is one sketched in broad, loose strokes. The men are never quite sure what they mean to one another, and neither are we. Some critics have found depth in the gaps Anderson leaves, but this takes some digging on the part of the viewer. Still, the opening scenes are so seductive

E

that it takes most of the film for their spell to wear off. However, just when we’re sobering up, Anderson seems to descend into fantasy. It’s as if he changes his mind about Dodd for the final act.

Ultimately, it’s a film of stunning performances and beautiful set pieces. While its sparse and stumbling narrative doesn’t quite earn its epic run-time, The Master provides one of this year’s most sumptuous cinematic experiences.

t’s tempting to say the vogue for European crime dramas stems from a kind of exoticism. To an Australian, there’s something alluring about snowfalls, sleet and mid-afternoon darkness. Arriving this month on DVD, The Bridge makes this cultural distance its focus, finding

I

drama in the clash between Danish and Swedish sensibilities. Like The Killing before it, The Bridge wraps its absorbing narrative around pervading social issues while avoiding easy answers. And, like The Killing, the show’s star is a complex, captivating and somewhat unglamorous woman. Strong female roles have become the standard in Euro crime. In superb French drama Spiral, top detective Laure Berthaud (Caroline Proust) is forthright, scruffy and refreshingly relaxed

about her sexual conquests. Spiral can be seen as the blueprint for the current wave of European drama. Its frank approach to the seamier side of life triggered a rise in unglossy realism. It’s this realism that is the true drawcard in SBS’ Euro crime collection. Maybe we no longer believe in hyper-polished home-grown crime dramas. However The Bridge, The Protectors, The Eagle and their fellows are just strange enough to appear true to life.

The right pinot Be tempted by fifty shades of gris, writes Ben Thomas ost wine drinkers will have a moment that makes an indelible imprint; when everything just clicks and the memory of the wine stays with them forever. For Kevin McCarthy and wife Kathleen Quealy, it was a bottle of Alsatian pinot gris bought from the old Richmond Hill Cellars in the mid-’80s. The wine was not only memorable for the two young Mornington Peninsula winemakers – it was life changing. “As we first tasted a bottle of Alsace pinot gris we nearly fell off our chairs,” says McCarthy, whose pinot gris and pinot grigio have long set the standard for the variety in Australia. Before the bottle had been emptied, McCarthy and Quealy were set on producing their own, but there were a few hurdles to jump before they made their first pinot gris in 1992. “It was a step into the unknown, planting that pinot gris. Our resources back then amounted to a credit card – we were the classic two young kids with an idea,” McCarthy says. “When we decided to put it in, there were no nurseries that had it (for immediate purchase), so we had to go to Wagga Wagga to a

vineyard that had it planted to take cuttings.” The pair then had to convince the Mornington Peninsula establishment. They wanted to plant the “wrong” type of pinot – the peninsula was pinot noir territory back then. Success built quickly at McCarthy’s and Quealy’s T’Gallant winery (it’s now owned by Treasury Wine Estates and McCarthy still makes the wines), and after their third harvest the wines were quickly developing a following. Today, more than 50 wineries on the Mornington Peninsula produce a pinot gris or

pinot grigio and 140 hectares are shaded by pinot gris vines. The clay soils help to give the wines a richness, and a long ripening period – due to the region’s maritime climate of warm days and cool nights – means they generally have good flavour development and good acidity. Peninsula pinot gris ages well. With time, the wine loses its fruit characteristics, develops savoury and spice characters and becomes more textural. ■ To read more reviews, visit www.theweeklyreview.com.au/wine

Gris or grigio? The same slightly pink, waxy-skinned grape produces pinot gris and pinot grigio. Traditionally, the grape is picked early in north-eastern Italy to produce crisp grigio, while in France’s Alsace region they pick their grapes later and riper to produce the more textural gris. However, there’s a huge swing between crisp and textural and a lot of grey areas in between. “The market is confused. There’s no way you can categorise gris/grigio as a style, nothing hard and fast, so we had to create a new language,” says Kevin McCarthy, who has been working with scientists at the Australian Wine Research Institute to develop the Pinot G scale. This categorises wines on a 10-point scale from crisp to luscious and is starting to appear on more back labels. “The idea with the Pinot G scale is to empower the consumer so they don’t have to guess.”

INSIDE&OUT

We’re a stroppy lot Australians aren’t happy with the service, if anyone is listening

ave you ever gone into a store intending to buy, only to walk out empty-handed because the service was lousy? You’re not alone; 86 per cent of Australians have done so. In fact, the Global Customer Service Barometer computed by American Express puts Australia No. 1 among countries where people say a bad service experience has a significant impact on their impression of a brand. It’s something companies should worry about. When Australians have a bad service experience, they tell, on average, 23 people. All that bad-mouthing has got to have an effect. And it’s particularly relevant in consumer electronics. People going into big electrical

retailers expect a good price but they’re also looking for efficient service and salespeople who can tell them the difference between a plasma and an LCD television and why one may better suit them than the other. These days electronic gadgets, from $200 cameras to $10,000 hook-it-up-yourself home theatre systems, are complex beasts. Not all are intuitive and easy to operate. Try finding and setting up the programmable remote control that’s right for you and you’ll get my drift. This means it’s easy to buy the wrong product, so there’s a lot of questioning and exploration to be done. But slim margins mean retailers can’t afford to employ and train staff like they used to. That’s probably why consumers do so much research on the internet before they purchase. But some retailers are obviously making an effort. The latest Canstar Blue survey of electrical retailers placed The Good Guys at the top of its customer satisfaction survey for the second year running. It was followed by

Retravision, JB Hi Fi, Harvey Norman and Dick Smith. Betta Electrical didn’t score enough responses to be included in the survey. Among other things, retailers were judged on value for money, comparative pricing, range, service at the point of sale and their catalogues, then came a rating for overall satisfaction. The Good Guys scored five stars out of five in every category except point of sale service and aftersales service, where they got four and were knocked off by Retravision with five in both. The bad news for retailers is that the survey found 25 per cent of consumers seek advice from retailers then search for lower prices on

the internet. Customers aged 35 and under are most inclined to do this with 44 per cent going online after getting the good oil from a bricks and mortar retailer. Canstar Blue is an independent ratings company that has been around for 20 years (it started as Cannex) and surveys products and services across a wide range of categories. It’s a handy guide when you’re buying stuff. It’s at canstarblue.com.au. By the way, 23 per cent of survey respondents said they had too many electronic gadgets and 21 per cent said they’d bought ‘‘must have’’ gadgets that they never use. ■

’ve only ever been chauffeur driven once. It was a terrible letdown. There I was in the rear seat of a long wheelbase Bentley behind a guy in a peaked cap who was acting upon my every instruction, and I discovered a cut-glass port decanter and matching glasses behind a small wooden door that could form a little table. There were two problems. Firstly it wasn’t even lunchtime and secondly the damn thing was empty. Ho hum. Decanters are one of the most popular back seat options among the rich and famous. Rolls-Royce has released figures showing that more than half the buyers of their Ghost (that’s the cheap Rolls-Royce, meaning you usually get a enough change for a six-pack out of a million dollars) and 80 per cent of Phantom buyers (think a mill-and-a-half on up) order what the company terms ‘‘bespoke personalisation’’. This can consist of anything from decanters through to unique paint and upholstery, cigar humidors and picnic baskets to the removal of the back seat and its replacement with wooden pens for the transport of prizewinning rams. Actually that last one may be an urban myth, but the story circulated the western district for years. I once asked Rolls-Royce about it but they pleaded client confidentiality. The personalisation boom has led to a doubling of employees in the bespoke division, where the completed car is sent for its custom fit out. When this is added to the fact that Rolls-Royce experienced record sales last year, things in Goodwood, where the Ghost and Phantom are produced, could be said to be going splendidly. Of course custom work takes time but Rolls-Royce buyers never seem to be in a hurry. Ditto Ferrari buyers, however fast they may drive. The Italians have taken personalisation to new heights. Were you to total every paint, upholstery and trim combination available for your new Ferrari or Maserati you’d come out somewhere north of four million, and that wouldn’t even include the heritage colours they offer. Or you can order your own colour. Take in a swatch of fabric and the Italian paint maestros will match it exactly and suggest complementary colours for the interior. Of course things can go wrong. There’s a famous story in the Sydney motor industry

about a special-order Porsche that specified colours so frightful that the factory checked them twice. It was yellow and its bright blue upholstery had gold piping. The problem arose when its buyer died while the car was on the ship to Australia. The dealer was stuck with it; even the buyer’s wife wouldn’t take it. Then a clever salesman took it to the Parramatta Leagues Club and sold it the same night. Team colours. ■

Things you didn’t know about motoring The automobile is the most recycled consumer product in the world today.

Inspired choice Familiarity breeds fondness for this location

KAY KEIGHERY PROPERTY WRITER pokes-vendor Julie Piscioneri professes a love of the area as the motivation for her and her husband – who grew up next door – to buy this property. Quiet and leafy, the street is minutes’ walk from train station and shops. The local demographic blends longterm residents and more recently arrived young families. A childcare centre in the street seems to be doing a roaring trade. These guys built the regal residence at

S

number five to their own specifications. Julie is a dedicated fan of Federation architecture, so that inspired facade presentation. Her eye for heritage-sensitive colours has rendered the interior warm in welcome. “It’s been so easy living here. We like entertaining at home, and there’s plenty of space for that, inside and out. The kids love playing in the backyard. We go to Dromana often and because of the freeway being so close that usually takes about an hour.’’ Brick paving precedes the double garage. The triple-gabled, red-brick facade has wooden fretwork over the front verandah. Tulip leadlight greets at the front door. The ground floor is made up of double garage with internal access, foyer, fourth bedroom, bathroom, interconnected lounge and dining rooms, laundry, and open-plan kitchen, meals and family. The second storey

adds two bedrooms, a large bathroom and the main bedroom with walk-in wardrobe, en suite and street-view balcony. The foyer has a columned cutaway to the formal living room. The lounge and adjoining dining room are walled in burgundy and carpeted in grey. Dropped brass and glass light fittings and scrunched drapes harmonise these atmospheric spaces. When child-free time permits, Julie likes to read under the bay window overlooking the front garden or just relax and watch people stroll by. The ground floor bedroom-bathroom works well for guests. The laundry accommodates storage and has a glass door to a drying court. Open-plan and airy, the kitchen, meals and family area combines functionality and finesse. Sydney blue-gum floorboards in the meals and family areas reflect lots of natural light. The large kitchen zone has terracotta floor tiles,

timber cabinets and stainless steel appliances. A gas fireplace in the family zone bodes well for winter cosiness. Upstairs, bedrooms present with personality via individual colour schemes, one in stippled pink and another moodier in maroon. Both have built-in wardrobes. The main bathroom has a claw-foot bath, glass shower and timber vanity unit. Spacious and well-zoned, the main suite is a most rewarding retreat. The leafyvista balcony is a romantic touch. Glass doors from the family area link the interior and covered alfresco entertaining terrace. As children have arrived during the decade of occupancy, the backyard has been reinvented to keep all happy. The current combination of terrace, big barbecue-friendly cabana, elevated cubby and central clothesline, all accessed by paved pathways, creates an admirable balance for all generations. ■

Old club, new blood Things are looking up in the Brunswick nets. By Daniel Paproth

Brunswick captain-coach David McKay with women’s coach Tammy Norquay.

runswick Cricket Club has left nothing to chance as it chases glory in the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association. The club, founded in 1899, has struggled amid the cricketing might of the North/East First XI division. Captain-coach Dave McKay, now in his third season in charge, took the club to a semi-final in 2010-11, but he and his charges missed out last season, losing four of their final five games. A determined recruiting drive and a strong junior program have given the club confidence

B

about featuring in finals this season. Bowler Tim Knox and batsman Charith Fernando both left the club during the off-season – Knox to Carlton and Fernando to Williamstown CYMS – but Brunswick covered the losses. From Premier Cricket club FootscrayEdgewater, Brunswick snared batsmen Kevin Barker and Evan Smith, and bowler Leigh Brennan. It also recruited batsman Matthew Busuttil from Rupertswood and Abdul Hashmi, another batsman, from Northcote. Brett Wilkinson, a bowler, returns after a year off.

The recruits have already paid some dividends, with Barker, Smith and Busuttil scoring crucial runs in Brunswick’s first win over Preston in October, and McKay says the club is in good shape. “It adds depth to our teams,” he says. “Whether they are playing in the ones or the twos, it’s adding a lot of depth.” McKay, brother of Australia’s Clint, is also playing, and despite a frustrating pre-season – he tore his groin muscle off his hip – he says he is getting into some form. “I’m just scraping through at the moment,” he says. “I’m a few weeks behind everybody else but I’m getting there. I’m not opening the bowling any more; just coming in first or second change and trying to do the team things.” Two of the club’s young players, Liam Molloy and Beau Carey, are playing representative cricket for Victoria. Brunswick merged recently with Brunswick Park Ladies Cricket Club, which McKay says has created a good feeling around Brunswick Street Oval, despite cramped nets at training. “[Australian representative] Elyse Villani, in particular, looks just as good as any of our best batsmen in the nets – she handles it quite easily,” McKay says. “It’s all going really well down here – we’re very closeknit.” McKay quashes any hopes of his brother coming to the club to roll the arm over. “He comes down and watches when he can but that’s about it,” he says. “He’ll go back to Pascoe Vale Central when he retires.” Brunswick starts its first two-day game this weekend against Plenty Valley, a side McKay played with when he was younger. “It’s mixed emotions,” he says. “But as long as we get the points.” ■

Heads up for battle of unis DESPITE Melbourne University’s heavy loss to Melbourne at the weekend, there is no doubt that the side has already improved on last season. With a batting and bowling line-up stronger than it was last season, they have the goods to make inroads. This weekend they take on HawthornMonash University, who struggled last season. It won’t be easy, however, as Hawthorn-Monash Uni have also been much improved; they made 9/348 against Northcote and look to have a solid top order. Carlton will have its work cut out for it against Dandenong in a two-day game starting this weekend. Dandenong is one of the powerhouses of the competition, and with Dan Doran in the line-up they prove formidable with the bat. Carlton isn’t too far away, though. Coming up against the in-form Footscray Edgewater over the last fortnight they chased down a total of 263 and lost just four wickets in the process, showing they too have the goods with the bat. North Melbourne was soundly beaten by Dandenong over the past fortnight but they also have shown signs of being able to match it with the big clubs. Their two-day game with Camberwell Magpies starts this weekend and North will be looking for a stronger performance with the bat after not being able to pass 200 against Dandenong.
