SARAH HARRIS QUE SERA

OUR COVER: Western suburbs identity Peter Gordon recounts some of his most cherished legal victories. Story: 12-13. Picture: Darren James

Op shop buried by ‘opportunities’ ou may have missed it, but last week was Australia’s first National Op Shop Week. It followed hard on the heels of Include a Charity Week, World Car-Free Day, World Alzheimers Day and International Peace Day. And it coincided with Salt Awareness Week, wrapped up National BioDiversity Month, Fruit’n’Veg Month, Save the Koala Month, Blue September, Prostate Awareness Month, Liptember, the Heart Foundation Doorknock Appeal, Debris Month of Action, Social September and the Light the Night Walk. It’s small wonder op shops got lost in the crowd when there were more designated national, international and state awareness events in September than days. But we’ll save that for another time! The National Association of Charitable Recycling Organisations joined the fray because op shop stocks are at a record low. This is only partly because we are flogging the shirts off our own backs on eBay. The deeper concern is that we are dressing ourselves in cheap mass-produced imports. Consequently, there is less to suit individual aesthetic quirks. Ditto that those who previously committed to op shops for ethical and environmental reasons are unlikely to be won over by a made-in-a-sweatshop-somewhere-in-India-orChina skirt — no matter how cheap. That leaves the poor — the original customer base. But fortunately they, too, now have some choice about over-priced tat some op shops offer on the pretext of goodwill. That’s the conundrum of business: people can vote with their feet in a highly competitive market. Maybe I’m putting my foot in it, but why buy my slightly scuffed, secondhand size 8s when you need only wait a week for the next 70-per-cent-off sale at Rivers to buy new?

INBRIEF Teen robbed at station Police are appealing for witnesses after a teenager was robbed at Ascot Vale station. Investigators were told the boy was sitting on the inbound platform on Monday, August 20 just after 6pm when a man threatened to stab him if he did not hand over his mobile phone. The teen handed it over and the man then pressed something against his stomach. The man is described as Caucasian, in his late 20s and 175cm tall. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au.

Speedster loses car A 20-year-old P-plate driver was travelling at double the speed limit early on Sunday when police stopped him in Keilor Road, Essendon. The Keilor Park man and his three passengers had to find other ways of getting home after police impounded his Ford. He will have to pay $689 for towing and storage when he collects the car in 30 days, plus will face court on several charges.

Warning on snake season Moonee Valley Council has warned residents to watch for snakes from now until February. Chief executive Neville Smith said that while Moonee Valley’s many reserves were great places to relax, some were also habitats for snakes. He urged people to take care when walking along creeks and bike tracks, and to make sure dogs were kept on lead in parks, especially along waterways.

Artistic fireworks Moonee Valley Council has announced the creation of FireWorks — a VCE art and design prize for students living in the area. Students studying art and design will be eligible to enter the competition. East Keilor and Strathmore Community Bank branches of the Bendigo Bank will award $500 to students with best art and best design. Entries close October 22. More details, incineratorgallery.com.au.

Community grants galore Moonee Valley Council’s community grants will this year total more than $162,000 – the most ever handed out. The funds will be distributed to 84 community groups in a ceremony on November 8. The maximum available for the social support grant has increased from $700 to $1000.

Workers race against the clock BY BENJAMIN MILLAR HIGHPOINT shopping centre is a fortnight away from unveiling the first stage of its $300million redevelopment. About 500 construction workers are racing against time to put the finishing touches on stage one, a high-stakes gamble on fresh food. The revamp adds 30,000 square metres to the centre and entrenches Highpoint’s place as the second-largest shopping centre in the southern hemisphere, behind Chadstone. The fresh food market is anchored by a new 4200-square-metre Woolworths store and features 15 specialty fresh food stores including a fruit and vegetable market, Asian grocer, butcher and baker. On a tour of the site last week, the Weekly was assured work was on track for the October 18 grand opening. Development manager Mark Pheely said the newly designed wing had moved a long way from traditional shopping centre design, with plenty of natural light aimed at reducing energy use by more than 56 per cent. He said rain would be harvested and electronic ‘smart park’ technology installed to help drivers find a parking spot faster.

On track: Development manager Mark Pheely and Highpoint centre manager Scott Crellin. Mr Pheely acknowledged the expansion to 520 stores was risky at a time of retail turmoil, but tenancy take-up rates were on track. “The landscape has changed since we began planning this, but we are confident about the

long-term prospects,’’ he said. Centre manager Scott Crellin said he looked forward to taking over management once the project was unveiled. “I think this is something the community will embrace.”

Sausage sizzle trumps disabled shopper MANAGERS at the Moonee Ponds Woolworths supermarket have assured the Weekly they will better monitor the use of disabled car parking spaces near the entrance to their Pratt Street store after a complaint from a resident. Anita Crockford, who is disabled, was recently shocked to find two of the disabled parking spaces had been taken up by a community group holding a fundraising barbecue. Mrs Crockford complained to store management and was assured

it would not happen again. But the following day when she returned to the store, another community group had been granted permission to use the same spaces for their fund-raiser. ‘‘I appreciate the supermarket is allowing various community groups to hold sausage sizzles at the entrance to the store. But I am totally annoyed that they are now allowing these groups to take up a disabled car park. ‘‘There are only nine disabled car spaces in that entire car park and,

particularly on a Saturday, it is extremely busy and difficult enough to get parking. ‘‘The supermarket allows these groups to take up one car park with all their goods and another to load and unload their vehicles.’’ After being contacted by the Weekly, a manager at the store said he was aware of the resident’s complaint and said the issue had been resolved. The Woolworths representative, who refused to have his details published, did not explain why the

complaint was not addressed immediately. He then hung up on the Weekly. Mrs Crockford said she hoped the store kept to its word. ‘‘I think there are a lot of elderly residents in the area and the only way they can do their shopping is by using those car spaces; it’s a bit unfair if they are not accessible.’’ Mrs Crockford said that despite sending a complaint to the Woolworths head office three weeks ago, she had not heard back from them. — Eugene Benson

Candidates on Greens’ ticket BY EUGENE BENSON A TOTAL of 26 candidates will contest nine positions across three wards in the upcoming Moonee Valley Council election. Buckley ward which includes Essendon, Strathmore, Aberfeldie and Niddrie has 10 candidates. Nine candidates will vie for Myrnong ward in the municipality's south, and seven have come forward to contest the Rosehill ward, which includes East Keilor and Avondale Heights. As reported last week, all sitting Moonee Valley councillors except James Rankin are recontesting for a spot on their ward. For the first time the Greens have an endorsed candidate in each ward. Moonee Valley Council has not had

a Greens councillor since Rose Iser resigned in December 2010 to pursue a career as an adviser for Federal Greens MP Adam Bandt. The two major parties don’t officially endorse local government candidates, however many of the other candidates are members of the Australian Labor Party and are therefore bound by party rules to preference each other on ballot papers. Of the 26 candidates, nine (or 34 per cent) are women, slightly above the state average of 32 per cent. The Victorian Local Governance Association has been running a campaign to increase women’s participation in local government. According the the association, women’s involvement in local government elections has increased on the

2008 election. Across the state there has been a slight increase from the previous council elections in 2008, when

31 per cent of candidates were women. Residents on the electoral roll will receive postal ballots for the

Moonee Valley Council election between October 9 and 11. Postal votes close at 6pm, Friday October 26.

Labor bid ‘harder for others’ AN influx of ALP members running as candidates in this month’s Moonee Valley Council election has raised the ire of several keen spectators. A former councillor, who asked not to be named, said that when multiple candidates from one party stood in one ward, they could work together to make it harder for other non-party candidates. While the ALP does not formally endorse local government candidates, members of the party are still bound by strict party rules when they enter local government. One rule states ALP Fresh tilt: Mayor Jim Cusack is one of four ALP members contesting the Myrnong ward. Picture: Scott McNaughton

members must preference other ALP members ahead of other candidates, regardless of their calibre or an individual’s personal preference. In Myrnong ward, four of nine candidates contesting three positions are ALP members: Jim Cusack, Miriam Gillis, Frank Dinoto and Nicole Marshall. The former Moonee Valley councillor said that once preferences were shared between the ALP members, it made it virtually impossible for any diversity of representation for residents. An ALP insider told the Weekly that it made sense that people of the same party would preference each other. ‘‘They all join the party for the same shared values. If they share those values, that should outweigh preferencing someone else.’’

The perfect place for a plaza An MMP Media publication PO Box 740, Niddrie, 3042 12 Howes Street, Airport West, 3042

soon move to Woodlands Park because of Saturday parking issues for village traders and staff.

next year when council becomes the collection agency for the fire services property levy enacted by the state government. Moonee Valley council, and most other Victorian municipalities, simply don’t have the resources to administer the levy and Spring Street is predictably silent as to whether or not any financial assistance will be forthcoming. The concept of a levy is certainly a more equitable system than the 20 per cent levy we now have for those of us who insure our properties. But it is a big workload for councils to collect the cash with little, if any, financial support to pay for its administration. Councils have had their federal government funding slashed by 50 per cent in the past 15 years. In 1993-94 councils received 1.2 per cent of Commonwealth revenue; now it is just 0.62 per cent. Unless we want a reduction in services, the council has little option other than pushing rates up even higher to cover the shortfall. And if the Baillieu government won’t help fund collection of the bushfire levy, it will be the ratepayers who will pay.

Ratepayers pay for levy collecting

The final word. . .

While we paid the first instalment on our rates last weekend, we need to brace ourselves for a hefty slug

ORTH Essendon shopping village is likely to get its own civic plaza with a third of Leake Street to be converted into open space. The plan is out for community feedback and is based on earlier community support. This is an excellent council initiative, providing relaxed public space for the people but also significantly improving traffic flow and pedestrian safety. And at remarkably little cost: $600,000. Leake Street will be converted to a one way street with no access from Mt Alexander Road. Just nine car spaces are lost. The centre will have a vibrant, social gathering space, and we will be able to enjoy outdoor dining experiences away from the bustle of busy Mt Alexander Road. New landscaping, lighting and footpaths will create a popular new facility. We hear, too, the monthly farmers market might

A NUMBER of buildings and places in Moonee Valley will be subject to detailed heritage studies in the coming months. Moonee Valley Council will undertake the heritage studies into ‘‘key buildings and themes’’ in order to better catalogue historical and culturally important features of the city. The council recently adopted a Thematic Environmental History, which will document details how the culture of the area has influenced the natural environment, buildings and structures. After producing this document it was decided further research on some features was required. Council chief executive Neville Smith said the TEH was strengthened largely by feedback by residents. Places subject to further research include the Laurel Hotel and the Lincolnshire Arms Hotel, the presence of pioneer retreats in Queens Park and Ormond Park.

Two city girls have stolen the limelight from their country cousins at the Royal Melbourne Show, dominating the Equestrian competition in the first week. Strathmore’s Alice and Lilli McEvoy, pictured with Alice’s horse Grazier, cleaned up in the riding events. Lilli won the Under 18s competition and Alice the Under 14s category. Alice was also Reserve Champ in the across age group junior category. Then in the Turnout events Lilli won the KG Luke perpetual trophy for the best rider in the 15-18 year category. Alice was the Reserve (second place winner) in the Pemberton trophy for 12-15 year olds. Alice also won first place in a category called Hest Hat, for the best horse and Lilli came second. The girls’ passion for horses started with visits to horse riding relatives in Deniliquin as youngsters.

The boy from the west recounts to Cameron Tait some of his biggest and most cherished victorie victories as a lawyer.

[ 12 ] MOONEE VALLEY WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

PICTURE: DARREN JAMES

eter Gordon has come a long way since, as a teenage schoolboy, he was almost expelled for writing a satirical essay about his teachers. Today, he sits high above Collins Street in his legal firm’s office, where windows offer views across the city. He peers over to the western suburbs, not only his childhood home, but where he launched what would become a highly decorated legal career. Memorabilia highlighting one of his great loves, the Footscray Football Club, sits proudly on the wall. Since conducting the first successful asbestosrelated cancer claim in 1984, Gordon has become internationally renowned for his work on landmark legal cases, including Australia’s first successful litigation over medically acquired HIV/AIDS. Damages were awarded to 470 people who contracted the disease as a result of blood transfusions in the early 1980s. A lawyer then partner at Slater and Gordon for 30 years, Gordon helped fight the OK Tedi environmental case against BHP and, in 2001, concluded a world-first settlement over 3000 Dow Corning breast implant claims. He acted on behalf of a class action against a German drug manufacturer over the sale of thalidomide, with a multi-million dollar settlement last month to more than 100 Australian survivors. At 32 he drove the Fightback campaign, which saved Footscray from a proposed merger with Fitzroy in 1989. Gordon led the club until October 1996, when a group of businessmen led by current chairman David Smorgon took control. Born in West Footscray, he grew up in a modest three-bedroom weatherboard house in Palmerston Street, a few drop punts from the Western Oval. A dyed-in-the-wool Bulldog, Gordon and his mates were regular fixtures in the outer — rain, hail or shine. ‘‘On Saturday mornings, I would pride myself on being the first one into the ground,” he says. ‘‘I was only about 10 or 11, but we would go to Moorabbin, Windy Hill and Glenferrie Oval and watch our team get smashed week after week.’’ His father worked as a clerk at the Tottenham RAAF base and his mother a sales assistant at Footscray department store Waltons. At Braybrook’s St John’s College, Gordon met Rob Stary. They became firm friends and in 1978 started the Western Suburbs Legal Service while studying law at Melbourne University. Stary would go on to become a high-profile criminal defence lawyer. ‘‘He [Rob] was always a bit politicised,’’ Gordon says, ‘‘but I became quite radical as a left-winger, resentful of the kids who went to October 2, 2012


INSIDESTORY

Scotch College and Melbourne Grammar and what I perceived as the way they looked down on kids like us [from the western suburbs]. ‘‘There were some [volunteer-based] legal services around at the time, but they were in ‘trendy’ places like Fitzroy, being run by the cool kids who smoked dope and ran the student union. ‘‘Our view was the real need for legal services was for the poor, in areas such as Newport and Footscray.’’ But there was resistance from local solicitors. ‘‘For them, the idea of people coming in giving free legal advice was somehow a threat to the integrity of the profession.’’ Gordon had hoped to get a scholarship to study teaching, but it was not to be. ‘‘Neither myself nor my sister ever aspired to the idea of becoming a doctor or a lawyer,’’ he says, ‘‘because it wasn’t something kids from West Footscray did. ‘‘It wasn’t until a teacher at St John’s, Rowan McIndoe, who came from Scotch and went on to be a magistrate, said: ‘You’re not somebody who has to limit their aspirations, you can do law’.” By the time he completed his law degree, Gordon had been giving pro-bono advice via the legal service for two years. ‘‘I was arrogant enough to think I was in a much better position to give competent advice than lawyers twice my age,” he recalls. ‘‘But when it came to getting a job, I held the view that I was from the wrong side of the tracks and no reputable firm would employ a kid from St John’s College, Braybrook.’’ Without his father’s intervention, Gordon’s career with Slater and Gordon may never have happened. ‘‘I wrote applications to law firms, going through the Yellow Pages, starting at A and by the end of the day I had reached R. ‘‘My dad, who had been watching me, got a copy of my standard letter and did R to W, so he did S, including Slater and Gordon. ‘‘They were one of only two firms to give me an interview and my only job offer. ‘‘They turned out to be this radical, left-wing firm doing workers’ compensation claims and populated almost entirely by people who were covertly members of the Communist Party. ‘‘We were trained by leaders of that firm that there was a legal dimension to law, but also a political dimension. We were struggling for poor and disenfranchised people against the big end of town.’’ In the mid-1980s, Gordon, Stary and Paul Grant — now president of the Children’s Court of Victoria — ran a Slater and Gordon office in Footscray. ‘‘It went gangbusters,’’ he says. ‘‘We had no airs or graces and quickly developed a reputation in the local community as guys to talk to who didn’t have tickets on themselves and who you could just come and talk to.’’ Gordon admits his views on the rich-poor divide have mellowed. ‘‘Growing up, I had the idea that we lived in the ‘deprived west’ and that somehow people had it better elsewhere. ‘‘But, as you get older, travel and experience other cultures, you realise the differences in kids from one suburb to the next are not as great as you once thought.

‘‘I’m glad I don’t have the parochial ‘us against them’ attitude that I once did, because I think that was immature’’. While taking on the likes of the James Hardie, CSR and British American Tobacco would be enough to send most lawyers ducking for cover it wasn’t so for Gordon. But he still had moments of trepidation. ‘‘If somebody is genuinely not intimidated at taking on a federal government, the tobacco industry or Dow Corning, they need psychiatric help. ‘‘It’s daunting to go up against people with unlimited resources. Not every case has a happy ending and my career has been peppered with outcomes I don’t feel good about.’’ While splitting his time across three states as part of an absestos claim against CSR and starting work on the HIV/AIDS case, Gordon was running Save the Dogs, a group dedicated to ensuring Footscray stayed at the Western Oval. One night in October 1989, he received a call from Bulldogs chief executive Dennis Galimberti, who dropped a bombshell. ‘‘He told me: ‘You need to know that tomorrow they’re going to announce the destruction of the Footscray Football Club’,’’ Gordon recalls. Following a hastily convened meeting, Gordon gathered together a group of supporters, including Tim Guinnane — now a County Court judge — and they set about trying to save their beloved Bulldogs. Taking the Victorian Football League to court, they were given 21 days to raise $1.8 million and prove the club could be solvent. A supporters’ rally was organised for the Western Oval two days later — Sunday, October 8. ‘‘The line from the VFL was: ‘We’re going to give you [the club] just enough rope to hang yourselves’. ‘‘On the day of the rally, it was drizzling with rain and at 6am I picked up The Sunday Age and they had published a letter from [VFL chief executive] Ross Oakley saying rather than $1.8 million we now had to raise $5 million. ‘‘It was a deliberately crafted piece of propaganda designed to make people not come to the rally. ‘‘Fifteen minutes before it started there was almost nobody there — it looked catastrophic. But, in the blink of an eye we had somewhere between 17,000 and 20,000 there.’’ Gordon’s rousing speech to the crowd has become legendary. ‘‘I started with a line from a Midnight Oil song: ‘It’s better to die on your feet than live on your knees’. ‘‘I announced the board, the new coach and I remember the wall of sound that hit me when I welcomed out the Footscray team for 1990. ‘‘I didn’t think twice to stick it to those blokes [the VFL] to get the result we needed. ‘‘I didn’t always think it was possible [to save the club] but was determined to give it my absolute best shot. If we were going down, I wanted to go down swinging.’’ Asked whether he would ever rejoin the club in an official capacity, Gordon leans back and pauses — deep in thought. ‘‘If ever I thought its existence was threatened ... I would do it.’’

PROFILE ●

Mission: project goodwill, accomplished BY ROBERT FEDELE any hands make light work is a saying Melanie Kent lives by. Five years ago Melanie, a member of the North Essendon Uniting Church, had an idea for a small project to help those in need with emergency relief. The concept kept growing and Helping Hands Mission became incorporated two years ago. ‘‘It was originally to help some of our country friends who were struggling as a result of drought,’’ she recalls, referring to the long-suffering Kyabram community. As Helping Hands Mission continued to grow it created a mobile op shop that would travel to country towns and offer clothes to locals, a concept brought about when a female farmer needed something to wear for a speech she was making at the Victorian Farmers Federation. The organisation already had a small op shop in Keilor Road but the mobile variety offered a lot more scope to help out. ‘‘She [the farmer] said if you could bring up a truckload full of clothes it would be greatly appreciated.’’

M

Helping hand: Melanie Kent is still passionate about helping others.

due to a lack of response, but because the group found much more value in bringing people to Moonee Valley by bus, shouting them a meal, and giving them a chance to buy clothing at Airport West warehouse.

Melanie obliged, and soon Helping Hands Mission had eight tonne of clothes and two days to put them all on clothes hangers. These days however, the concept has morphed again. The mobile op shop has been canned, not

This week Helping Hands Mission is hosting a group from Rochester. Next week it will be Inglewood. ‘‘What they really need is some time out. A day away has some real impact for them,’’ Melanie says, who is a founding member of the project. ‘‘It’s amazing. It makes me so proud to watch how things have grown to affect the lives of so many people.’’ Closer to home, the group has also made a concerted effort to help the local community. There’s about 70 volunteers who assist, whether it be for serious relief or simply donating kids clothes for the winter. ‘‘We know it doesn’t solve all problems of the world but it does take a lot of the pressure off.’’ Melanie says she has no plans in giving up the cause. ‘‘It’s probably become my life now. ‘‘I can’t imagine a day of not doing this.’’ Even her two young children are getting involved. ‘‘It gives them a real understanding of what giving and helping is all about.’’

HILARY McNEVIN EATING OUT large block stands vacant and derelict across the road from Petitou on Somerville Road in Kingsville. The mish-mash of graffitied buildings proves to be a sharp contrast to the pretty-as-a-picture cafe. Petitou has been here for a few years and clearly has the young-family market covered, as well as making room for adults needing some quiet time. It feels tiny as you walk in, with one communal table in the middle of the room and a bench across the front window with a handful of seats. Move through the deceivingly long building, however, and you’ll find the children’s room complete with toys, a doll’s house and tables and chairs for parents and carers. The room must

take some wear-and-tear but there is a freshness to the finish of the long space with bright white walls, pictures by local photographers for sale and retro touches. The menu is very user-friendly, focusing on good fresh sandwiches and jaffles. You’ll even find a jaffle special on the blackboard. On our visit it was homemade creamed corn, bacon and cheese ($7.50), or perhaps one filled with egg, cheese, spinach and tomato chutney ($7). Simple and very comforting. The panini selection is also worth checking out, one with bacon, spinach, tomato and mayonnaise ($7.50) is as fresh as the paint job on the walls and you’ll also find enormous homemade sausage rolls ($5.50 each) or a lentil and vegetable roll as a vegetarian option. The children have their own menu featuring banana

Playing with food: Small furniture, open spaces and a child-friendly menu makes Petitou an excellent place for a family treat. Picture: Scott McNaughton and honey jaffle ($5.50) or toasted cheese sandwich ($4.50) as well as small milkshakes ($2.50) just the right size for little hands. Petitou has a strong sense of community; it’s a hub with a noticeboard by the counter holding newsletters

on local events and classes. The service is straightforward and friendly and with other quality, nurturing places like it finding a place in this burgeoning area, I can’t imagine the vacant lot across the road will be empty for much longer.

edorthics. It’s a term that anyone with less-than-happy feet quickly becomes familiar with since pedorthists specialise in medical-grade footwear and corrective devices to address foot problems. Clare Nelson, pedorthist and owner of Extra Depth Footwear in Moonee Ponds, is so dedicated to foot health and comfort that she and partner Frank have added to their business name: Extra Depth Footwear @ Happy Feet Pedorthics. Clare said they were a part of the Allied Health team, assessing and fitting people with pedorthic footwear. ‘‘People come to us because they know they want shoes to fit their feet. We aim to match the ‘want’ with shoes that give less pain and more safety, mobility and comfort. We also repair, modify and make shoes,’’ she said. ‘‘Some people come to us looking for quality footwear but most come because they need shoes to correctly fit. We’re able to fit even up to size 15 length and 14E width — and if we don’t have a shoe stocked, we can make them. ‘‘The goal is happy feet, happy body and happy face.’’ Although the Happy Feet team custom makes shoes, less than 1 per cent of clients need them for foot health. Clare said they had recently made shoes for people with post-polio syndrome, club foot, Charcot deformity,

Dine review

Great food, with huge side of warm hospitality

G4992121AK-a2Oct©FCNVIC

Brekkie treats: Smoked salmon atop crispy potato rosti, and chorizo, tomato and white bean stew.

SPECIAL

By Carole Levy

A

s owner of Stratus 233, Alex Marley is a force of nature. He has steered his stylish Ascot Vale restaurant over its nearly 30-month history to become a dining star on Union Road. And his front-of-house persona is a key reason for its success. The combo of down-to-earth friendliness and an ability to make each visitor feel special is actually a reflection of what’s found on his menus. Modern Aussie, with liberal splashes of Asian and an occasional foray into Mediterranean, describes the dishes served up by head chef Steven Doyle, who’s been with Alex from the beginning. It’s friendly, comforting food but nevertheless has a sense of occasion. On a recent Saturday night, two friends and I had the pleasure of eating at Stratus 233. With its tres chic decor, we were instantly in the mood for good food — and got it. A sharing plate of twice-cooked sticky pork spare ribs, meltingly tender and all smoky-honey, with toasted sesame seeds, spring onions and a hint of chilli proved a delicious launching pad to a parade of treats.

One friend tucked into the red duck curry as a main course and, with lychees cutting through any richness, she declared it yum — snake beans, shallots, coconut cream and jasmine rice were other elements. Soft pillows of gnocchi in a taleggio cream sauce, with baby spinach, toasted walnuts and parsley and lemon zest got a big tick from me. Making sure to leave room for desserts, we had love affairs with an apple and quince crumble with cinnamon anglaise and vanilla-bean ice-cream; and the renowned coconut and kaffir lime panna cotta with tapioca and passionfruit syrup. Breakfast at Stratus 233 is also unmissable, with items such as herb and garlic-roasted field mushies on housemade brioche alongside wild roquette and goats curd — and, of course, eggs all ways, pancakes, bircher muesli and then some.

CHRISTMAS DA Y LUNCH


The diner’s choice

wine&dine Advertising feature

Singing in Vietnamese wner and head chef David Bui of Green Tea Vietnamese Cuisine in Flemington has learnt a thing or two about the complexity of Vietnam’s cuisine in his 20 years in the industry. His style comes from the south of the country, which was influenced by the French who left their mark during occupation years. But David’s menu sings the language of Vietnam loud and clear, with dishes full of freshness, flavour and zing tweaked to appeal to the western palate. The restaurant, with wooden floors and seating, ball lights and pictures on the wall of prepared dishes, is brash and modern and reflects the accessibility of food designed to appeal to cheerful family gatherings. A long list of ever-popular traditional pho (pronounced “fuh”) is on the dinner menu, with just one favourite at lunchtime — the rare beef pho. Laksa and other noodle soups are well represented, as are many main course noodle dishes. Flavoursome salads— a meal in themselves— include the likes of tender eye fillet steak mixed with papaya and a super-fresh herb and mint combo. David says his spring and rice paper rolls walk out the door.

O

‘‘We deep fry our spring rolls, as is traditional, and they’re served with lettuce, mint and our special homemade fish sauce. And our rice paper rolls are bursting with the flavours of prawn, chicken or duck and come with a peanut sauce.’’ For something a tad more sophisticated, there’s the braised duck breast with Japanese mushrooms and oyster-glaze sauce. And for finger-lickin’ enjoyment, the twice-cooked pork spare ribs in red vinegar glaze are hard to go past. Desserts venture into the comfort food style, with green tea ice icecream, and banana stuffed with sticky, warm coconut sauce as examples. And the lychee and grass jelly coconut drink is one to try. Functions are catered for and there’s a set banquet menu. Free home delivery is on offer and for the ultimate hassle-free at-home dining, there’s online ordering.

ROSS McGRAVIE PROPERTY WRITER amilies wanting lifestyle, comfort and a touch of luxury need look no further than this Georgianstyle dwelling in Maribyrnong’s renowned Riverbank estate. On a 513-square-metre block that has been well used to create an aesthetically pleasing result, the rendered double-storey delight makes an instant impression with its colourful gardens and imposing facade with large Colonial-style windows across its east-facing facade. Built in the late 1990s, the 334.8-square-metre residence has been lovingly maintained and updated by the second owners to provide the ultimate in comfort. An arched portico entry and tiled pathway, flanked by pencil pines, sets the tone for the easy-living features inside. Immediately to the left of the carpeted entry is the

VENDOR'SVIEW ●

‘Wedged’ by a park and village This two-storey residence is instantly appealing, writes Ross McGravie ith a park at one end of her street and Racecourse Road village at the other, Tania Jones couldn’t ask for a better location than her Kensington residence. And when staff at the corner cafe hand-deliver the family’s favourite dishes, you know you’re on a winner. Tania says she and her husband Simon were living at the back of Simon’s parents’ house in Moonee Ponds in 1991 when they bought a block of land with the intention of building a home. But after missing out on an auction in Brunswick, the newlyweds decided to buy an established place, and this ready-to-go house ticked all the boxes in 1992. Inspired by a Victorian balcony terrace, the two-storey brick residence is instantly appealing behind its picket fence and period-style security door. Ready to be enjoyed, it has three upstairs bedrooms, two with built-in wardrobes. The main bedroom features Colonial doors that open to a full-width balcony, while the third bedroom has roof access. The neat main bathroom has a toilet, shower and bath. There’s a carpeted loungeroom with heater, separate carpeted dining room with small deck that doubles as a lightwell, and a slate-tiled rear area that incorporates a modern kitchen with upright stove, fixed rangehood, tiled splashback, dishwasher, meals area with airconditioner, laundry and downstairs toilet. A sliding door opens to reveal a brick-paved courtyard with sail cloths providing shade and a privacy screen.

W

The yard caters for two vehicles via a remotecontrolled rollerdoor and right-of-way. Tania said no major work had been necessary over the years, though she and Simon had added the largest outdoor spa available at the time to the back courtyard. That quickly made the house the social centre of the street, she says. “Our neighbours are wonderful. Darryl, who lives next door, moved in six months before us in 1992 and is still there. ‘‘Next to him is his brother Ron and his wife and two children, and Darryl’s mother Mary lives across the street with another brother.” And the location is second to none. “[We are] four houses down from the Newmarket shops. It’s amazing how spoilt we were, living so close to all amenities,” Tania says. “We would decide daily what we would make for dinner and go and purchase most items. “I’d take the kids to the football and Simon would drop us off at either Etihad Stadium or the MCG and we’d catch the tram home. “And for shopping in the city, the tram and train, doctors and dentist are all just around the corner. ‘‘When Fringe cafe´ was on the corner, the kids were only small so the cafe´ would bring down to our door my favourite [seafood risotto].” Understandably, the family will miss the neighbours and the location most. “We have been renting the house out with the intention of returning but, unfortunately, our circumstances have changed,” Tania adds. But their loss will be the buyer’s gain.

Ewan Kennedy reviews Toyota RAV4’s special edition oyota Australia has released a special edition of its popular RAV4 compact SUV with what it describes as more than $3500 worth of extra-value features. The RAV4 ‘Altitude’ special edition is based on the 2WD and AWD RAV4 fourcylinder CV models, but at this stage at least, there is no V6 variant in this format. Features beyond the standard CV model grade include satellite navigation and 17-inch alloy wheels. Exterior features include silver roof rails, front fog lamps, rear-quarter, rear-door and rear privacy glass, and an ‘Altitude’ exterior badge. Inside, the RAV4 Altitude SE also has a premium steering wheel and premium gearshift knob, 6.1-inch LCD touch-screen audio unit, satellite navigation with 3-D display and Suna traffic warnings, as well as voice recognition for audio controls, Bluetooth phone control and navigation control. All RAV4 models have electric powerassisted steering to trim fuel consumption.

NOW AVAILABLE UNTIL DECEMBER 31 ON THE ENTIRE CURRENT GENERATION CAMRY & AURION RANGE!

Extra value: Styling of the Toyota RAV4 is neat and will appeal to no-nonsense buyers. Safety features include vehicle stability control, traction control, anti-lock brakes and Hill-start Assist Control as standard equipment. With Toyota’s expertise in 4WDs behind it the RAV4 is much more competent off-road than most owners realise. The recommended retail price for the special edition Toyota RAV4 Altitude with a manual gearbox and two-wheel drive is $29,990. This is an increase of just $1000 on the RAV4 CV on which it is based.

New coach to help revive Bombers BY TEO PELLIZZERI NEW Essendon Cricket Club coach Brendan Joyce has made it clear that reputations and records will count for little in his new season at the helm. The Bombers’ fourth coach since the departure of Darren Cullen in 2010 will lead the club into this year’s Victorian Premier season with a renewed sense of optimism. Joyce is no stranger to success, having won two premierships and a Ryder medal in his 216-game career with Fitzroy-Doncaster.

He joins the Bombers after spending last season at Carlton as assistant coach. Essendon hit an alarming low last year and was beaten outright within a day by Dandenong on course to finishing 13th. All four of Essendon’s grades missed the top eight and the first XI is in a finals drought stretching back to the introduction of an 18-team ladder and final eight system in 2007-08. Ben Fletcher has been retained as Essendon captain this year, while fellow co-coach from last season Craig Berger has retired. ‘‘We haven’t set massive expectations, the main

thing was to get training right,’’ Joyce said. ‘‘I wasn’t interested in looking at history. I’ll judge people on their commitment level.’’ Fielding has been a top priority since preseason started in late June. ‘‘Our first couple of games will be based around the basics,’’ Joyce said. ‘‘We haven’t taken any short cuts, it’s all about being competitive. We’re about improvement and getting things right.’’ One international player will join the club this season with former Zimbabwe under-19 representative Solomon Mire joining the club.

Mire, 23, most recently played first class and list-A cricket in Zimbabwe in October last year and has list-A averages of 39 with the bat and 33 with the ball. Recruits from other premier clubs include Shane McNamara (North Melbourne) and Luke Andree and Rhys Bonney (Carlton). The core of last year’s squad is back with state players Steven Reid and Louis Cameron, Ben McRae, James Dickinson, Tom Batters and Mitch Johnstone. Essendon starts its season against Footscray Edgewater on Saturday from 10am.

INBRIEF

New signing vows to do best for Rangers NEW Dandenong Rangers signing Sara Blicavs has come through the gruelling tests of preseason and is ready for life with the WNBL champions. After two WNBL seasons with the Australian Institute of Sport, the 19-year-old has been asked to play power forward and centre due to the lack of import centre Krista Phillips and other Rangers talls, while at training she has struggled to keep up with the intensive fitness work demanded by Rangers coach Mark Wright. Yet Blicavs said she still loved being a part of the Rangers and learning the realities of WNBL basketball. ‘‘This preseason is going to be the death of me,’’ she joked. ‘‘It’s been tiring but I love training hard and getting back into things. ‘‘The girls have been awesome; I’ve fit in so well and they are a very accepting bunch.’’ With several of the Rangers missing from the side during the WNBL preseason tournament at Dandenong Stadium last month, Blicavs got plenty of minutes to run herself up to WNBL speed. But the majority of those minutes were in the post, rather than her favoured guard and small forward positions. Now with taller players such as Phillips and Carley Mijovic returning to the team, Blicavs is getting used to moving back outside. ‘‘I will play inside a little bit at times, like when I have mismatches or when we are missing players,’’ she said. The Rangers are returning the core of their championship team with Olympians Kath Macleod, Jenna O’Hea and Phillips all back along with Steph Cumming, Tegan Cunningham and Alison Downie. O’Hea could miss the first four or five matches due to WNBA play-off commitments with the LA Sparks. Blicavs and best friend Mijovic both join the team fresh from the AIS and will face a battle to earn minutes in the team. But for Blicavs, she has embraced the battle to prove herself to her new team. ‘‘Our first training was a killer,’’ she said. ‘‘It sounds corny but I idolise those players above me in our team. ‘‘They show me the level I have to reach to be up with them. You want to beat them at training and they are so knowledgeable that it’s helped me a lot.’’ Blicavs has also adjusted quickly to the demands of Wright, who wants to take his side to a secondstraight title against Lauren Jackson’s Canberra Capitals and a reloaded Bulleen. ‘‘He is very forward,

TAC Cup Dual TAC Cup premiership coach Martin Allison has left the Calder Cannons with Andrew Jago taking over the role. Allison, who took Calder to grand final wins in 2009 and 2010, has been appointed head coach of the AFL Victoria Metro academy under-18 program. Jago has spent two years as a coach at the Calder Cannons and worked in other AFL Victoria development roles with country players and girls’ teams. His local coaching includes roles with VFL clubs Sandringham and Northern Blues, Old Haileybury, Seddon and Seymour. The Cannons’ best and fairest night will be held on Friday, October 12.

which is great,’’ she said. ‘‘You need coaches who aren’t afraid to speak their mind because you need to know when you are going good or doing bad. ‘‘He is such a friendly and funny person, then as soon as training starts his mood changes and he becomes angry and intense for two hours, then straight after he is fine.’’ When it comes to her role this season, Blicavs has no idea how she will fit into the Rangers team but is

committed to giving her all no matter what she is asked to do. ‘‘I’m trying to prove I’m worthy of playing some minutes but I can’t choose what happens. It’s totally up to Mark,’’ she said. The WNBL season starts on Friday night when the Rangers host Bulleen Boomers at Dandenong Stadium at 7pm. — Roy Ward
