s it OK to yell at your kids when they have a friend over? Hope so, because yesterday I did, and I did it good and proper. And then I felt bad, but what do you do when the little one wants to play with the big girls and they won’t let her? She’s screaming about it, they’re screaming about it, and while I’m trying to get them sorted, the phone is ringing and dinner sure isn’t going to cook itself, is it? And so I scream back. Later that night, when we’ve all settled, we watch an episode of Little House on the Prairie. And, of course, it’s the one where Caroline Ingalls loses her temper with Mary because that wild, crazy little girl sneaks out to the barn, when everyone is asleep, to study for an exam and accidentally starts a fire. Caroline flips, says she isn’t allowed to sit the exam (imagine the pain) and then feels so bad about her outburst she goes to the priest for absolution. Welcome to the confusing world that is our house. We confiscate the iPods before 7pm to force-feed the kids’ old-fashioned family values through the vintage DVD collection. They’re more likely to take heed from the TV than their parents, right? So let’s all sit down to eat ice-cream and watch Laura and Mary rake out the barn and make by hand some tin bells for the town church. Meanwhile, do we ourselves take notice? It worked when we were kids – the other adult in this house said the combination of Little House and cowboy and Indian films had such a profound effect that his greatest childhood fear was dogs with rabies and quicksand – not all that abundant in Bulleen. But the Ingalls’ approach to parenting is all about measure, consistency and tone, something some days I’d like to have a little more of. In fact, as a parent, I’ve come to realise, it’s all about tone, and just how long you can manage to keep the

sweet, suggestive thing going. It might work for the first when you’re new to the game and following toddlers around is still a novelty, but by the time the second one comes and they’re both yelling their lungs out or kicking and poking each other while you’re driving on the freeway, “let’s use our indoor voices and gentle fingers, darlings” doesn’t really cut it. Recently, one afternoon, I heard a young mum tell her son, in the chirpiest voice, that pooing in public wasn’t good manners. She sounded like a Playschool presenter, not the mother of a child who had just caused an evacuation at the pool. And then, minutes later, I heard another scream “don’t you dare be a sook” to her three-year-old, who was about to begin swimming lessons. How do kids know right from wrong when it’s always delivered in sing-song? But then how can we possibly avoid creating a society with self-esteem issues and frustrated, violent behaviour, if we’re always yelling at each other? That’s why we need Little House on the Prairie. Anyway, when I dropped off the visiting child, I confessed to her mother about the yelling and she laughed out loud, because we all do it, why apologise? And then we chatted about Charles and Caroline and their life. Her favourite bit was when the girls got tin mugs for Christmas – it was the best day of their lives. Yes, welcome to our confusing world. \ khall@theweeklyreview.com.au we welcoMe your feedback

barista \ leanne tolra reviews truman Corner store little out of the Albert Park norm. Set on a big, wide corner fronting Kerferd Road, its appeal is broad – office workers, mums with prams, older families and groups of mates – and its sense of fun instantly obvious. Mark Wright and Ryan Cassidy opened Truman mid last year, taking over the empty space that had belonged to Café Ciliego. They operate the place, backed by partners Jackie Bega and Adele Arkell (Las Chicas, The Galleon and Radio Mexico). Both had worked for the “girls” at their other cafes, but it’s a first ownership for the business partners. Wright has been collecting his “op-shop stuff” – the teaspoons, sugar bowls and pineapple ornaments for years, always with his own café in mind. “Pineapples are going to be big one day,” he says. The pair chose Di Bella’s coffee, as they had already worked with it, and brought along chef Catherine Dando (an ex Las Chicas colleague) to keep it all in the family. Dando’s menu is varied and interesting and includes a bright breakfast salad of cherry tomato, avocado and Bulgarian feta on toasted

ciabatta and a quinoa salad, dense with roasted sweet potato and toasted seeds enlivened by mint, rocket and spinach leaves.

Truman Corner Store 318 Montague Street, Albert Park

Oliver Jackson barista says he was making coffee long before latte art and

single-origin beans became de rigueur. Not that he’s opposed to either. “I like to make it look good,” he says of his coffee, “but there’s no room for three grinders here.” Jackson says he’s worked in “lots” of cafes around Melbourne. He ran his own, Trenta Posti, in Toorak for two-and-a-half years and spent another two at North Melbourne’s Auction Rooms, in its early days when there were only two baristas at the machine. He learned a little about roasting coffee there, but was less interested in the scientific side of caffeine than the people side. He prefers working behind the café’s La Marzocco espresso machine, chatting to customers. Jackson spent a couple of years travelling, returning home in time to get the word about Truman opening. The café uses Di Bella’s Felici blend to create malty, creamy flat whites with a hint of dark chocolate and, yes, they do look good. \ ltolra@theweeklyreview.com.au

Nanna would be at home here, surrounded by collected toys – troops of plastic soldiers march around the walls – and various curios. The Truman “look” is quirky, homely and entertaining; staff reminder notes are scrawled on tiles and scrabble letters spell out messages. Pre-loved furniture fills every corner, there’s a timber antique teaspoon rack by the front door and displays of old encyclopaedias and assorted pineapple-shaped ornaments draw the eye. Collected sugar bowls, mismatched salt and pepper shakers and oddments of crockery and cutlery complete the light-hearted theme. There’s oodles of outdoor seating under leafy trees and plenty of room for prams too. \

fOOd \ Kendall Hill reviews saKé resTaUranT and Bar

T

he burning question this week is, since when did Melbourne become a third-fiddle food city, after Sydney and Brisbane? It’s a question raised by the belated arrival Yarra-side of Shaun Presland’s mod-Japanese franchise Saké, which debuted in Sydney in 2009, then branched out to Brisbane and, about a month ago, finally opened its doors at the revamped Hamer Hall. Presland is a seriously good chef, a sushi master and devotee of Japanese culture who distinguished himself in Sydney by creating the harbour city’s finest raw bar at Sushi-e in The Establishment Hotel. He then did a stint at Nobu in The Bahamas (how nice) before signing on as executive chef at Saké and rolling out the concept along the eastern seaboard. There’s more than a hint of Nobu here at Saké Melbourne, from the chorused “Irasshaimase!” on entry to déjà vu menu dishes such as kingfish jalapeño (cf. Nobu’s yellowtail), sashimi tacos and beef tataki with garlic chips. But even while Saké can sometimes feel like Nobu Melbourne Mark II, I much prefer the space here than the one down the river at the casino. Set over two floors riverside at the concert hall, Saké’s sharp lines of polished concrete and glossy timbers are softened by cut orchids, kitchen shelving stacked with warm ceramics and a sculptural cherry tree festooned with bud-light blossoms. We take our seats inside a slatted, izakaya-style booth, which is lower lit and more convivial than the tables on centre stage. From here we can’t see the tops of the CBD skyscrapers across the river, just a wall of glittering lights. It’s quite striking. Another Nobu alumnus, Singaporean Rose Ang, is

running the kitchen while Presland oversees the empire and she obviously shares his passion for precision in taste and plating. Even a simple bowl of edamame is a study in the freshest, greenest soybean pods, lightly dusted with sea salt. They’re followed smartly by a sashimi of kingfish lightly cured in yuzu (citrus) soy, with the kick of jalapeño and the zing of coriander. It’s mouth-jinglingly good, but soon eclipsed by a plate of white soy snapper. The diaphanous, pink-edged fish flesh is seasoned with yuzu and white soy, nutty sesame seeds and chopped chives, and there’s shredded daikon on top. With the exception of the daikon, which for me always has a slight smelly-sock aroma, each ingredient shines through bright and true. This is almost faultless fish. Tonkatsu pork is a weak link in the line-up. Four nuggets of panko-crusted pork belly and spring onion sit in lettuce cups smeared with mustard miso and barbecue sauce. The minced pork texture is pappy and the sauces seem cloying after our elegant starters. Grainfed wagyu teriyaki has a marble score of 7+ (I’m sure this means something to someone) but, more importantly, arrives lightly seared at the edges and shiny with sweet soy marinade. A bed of buckwheat, shiitake and soybeans amps up the savoury scale and does pleasant things texture-wise too. As with all the dishes, it comes on a beautiful glazed earthenware plate – like something out of Eltham circa 1975, when the hippies were at the height of their pottery powers. There are more melting moments with the popcorn shrimp, a cute concept (again imported from Nobu) of prawn pieces delicately battered and then smothered in “creamy spicy dressing”, and in the salt-and-pepper

The Saké kitchen: From within, there's a passion for precision. (DARRiAN TRAYNoR)

Online wine

Ben Thomas goes French. + Weekly wine selections.

Moreton Bay bug tails with bitey yuzu mayo. It’s great drinking food, and Saké does an excellent line in drinks. The booze list features top-shelf spirits (hello Patrón Añejo) and a comforting selection of decent, mostly Australian wines. There’s even a saké sommelier who proves blindingly knowledgeable about the rice wine selection. When we ask about a baked apple and pear-scented drop called Yuho junmai, he launches into a comprehensive report on its provenance. Yuho is a “beautiful little brewery” on the north-west coast, about four hours by train from Tokyo (the slow train, not the bullet train, he clarifies). And the toji or master brewer is a woman – one of only a handful in Japan – so the style is very floral and delicate. “So yeah, that’s a beautiful one to start with.” He’s like the Rain Man of saké. If only all the staff were as sharp. The Sydney restaurant has had a hat since opening and it’s possible, if the service here shapes up to match the polish of the food and the setting, that Saké Melbourne could earn one too. Not that giving out hats is any of my business. Just saying. Meanwhile, for sweets we pick something called bubblemilk tea, a bland muddle of tapioca, Chantilly cream and pistachio crumbs that will do nothing to dissuade Western palates that Japanese desserts, even contemporary ones, can be a bit average. You might be better off summoning Saké Guy for another shot of seishu. \ khill@theweeklyreview.com.au tO read mOre reviews

Education \ Teaching is an art that this mentor has well and truly mastered, writes CHERYL CRITCHLEY.

a

s a child, John Knap realised he had a special gift for drawing when fellow students would clamour for the quirky Donald Duck sketches he handed out by the dozen. “I drew him about 20 times and took them all to school and within five minutes they were all gone because people wanted them,” Knap says now. “I made sure that each one of them was a little bit different.” It was a thrilling start to a long and fulfilling career as an artist and teacher, albeit not a very profitable one. Knap gave those first sketches away for free, but has since exhibited and sold many of his stunning abstract portraits. The gifted painter and communicator, whose luminous portraits have evolved with his life experience, attributes part of his success to teaching budding artists to express themselves and follow their dreams. Now at Kilvington Grammar School’s leafy Ormond campus, Knap combines art with teaching to enjoy the best of both worlds. At school, where he looks the part in a crisp, well-tailored suit, he has steady employment and satisfying “people” time. After hours he has complete freedom of expression with his paintbrush. It is a balancing act that the immaculately presented but down-to-earth Knap has perfected since growing up in sunny Surfers Paradise before it was dominated by skyscrapers. Knap’s parents, Karl and Francis, came to Melbourne from Slovenia, then part of Yugoslavia, in the 1950s. “They were going to go to Canada but the boat to Melbourne left first,” Knap says. Karl and Francis settled in St Albans and had daughters Christine and Cvetka before John arrived in 1968. Knap always loved art, and one of his earliest memories is watching his father sketch horses on the edge of the daily newspaper. He was fascinated and wanted to do it for himself. Before long he did. The Knaps moved to the Gold Coast in 1974, where John attended St Vincent’s Primary School on the beach at Surfers. It has since been replaced by high-rise developments, but in the 1970s the town was a relatively laid-back seaside resort. The Gold Coast was still dominated by holiday shacks and low-rise hotels. “It was … fairly raw,” Knap says. “Surfers still had all the pine trees along the beach. It was … more of a family thing. Melbourne people would go there because it was beach and because it was quite laid-back.” Knap lived right on the beach, which these days is prime real estate dotted with mega-hotels. His parents eventually sold and moved to a nearby canal estate. Their old home is now a resort tennis court. It was an idyllic childhood in an iconic location. Knap was encouraged to explore his artistic side in primary and high school. He looked forward to his art projects and loved music and drama. Knap’s high school, Aquinas College in Southport, was boys only but is now co-ed. Knap was the “go-to” student for all things artistic, starring as Captain Hook in the school production of Peter Pan and Fagan in Oliver. The school also competed in eisteddfods. Thanks partly to Knap’s idea of modernising its witch show to include characters based on Madonna, Tina Turner, Boy George and Bruce Springsteen, Aquinas scooped the pool, after improvising due to its lack of girls. “I was Madonna,” Knap says, laughing. After toying with becoming an architect with his builder father, Knap decided he didn’t have the eye for detail. He studied graphic design in Townsville then moved to Brisbane, where he qualified as a secondary teacher. Unfortunately for this aspiring creative type, Brisbane was no hotbed of graphic design, so he tried several other part-time jobs before starting at Merrimac State High School on the Gold Coast in 1990. He loved it. The school had a good art department and cross-section of 16 The weekly review \ OCTOBER 17, 2012

to burst. It didn’t. The students were well behaved and the school well resourced. “It was a dream. If you asked them to do something, they did it. Even now with the introduction of boys, that culture is still the same.” In 2011, Kilvington introduced boys in its prep-year 6 grades, and this year boys were welcomed in years 7 and 10-12. Next year, all year levels will be co-ed. Knap said the move was made to broaden the scope of the school and to offer students more opportunities. This has been achieved without compromising the school’s intimate feel and “not for our own but others’ good” ethos. “Because we’re a small school we have a sense of community,” Knap says. “We’re going to remain a small school because we’re all about the individual, and that’s a very important thing. It’s harder to do that at a large school. Here everybody knows everybody. The teachers all know all the students. It’s really like a community and people really do look out for each other.”

ll Kilvington Grammar students study art and drama from prep to year 8. Senior art classes are small to allow more personal attention. Knap is year-9 program co-ordinator and teaches art to students in years 6-10, loving every minute of it. Contrary to the popular perception of students being addicted to technology and wanting everything yesterday, Knap says they still love getting their hands dirty with paint and clay.

hen light, space and seclusion are the cornerstones of a residential design, you know you’re in a builder’s own house. There is a strategy behind the placement of every window, screen, nook and cranny of this house. The result is a unique layout that doesn’t waste a centimetre of the property’s prime position, right at the edge of Alma Village. A combination of white walls, bluestone floors and dark timber tones create a sleek, contemporary feel that reflects the house’s cutting-edge design. Floor-to-ceiling glass is used to great effect in the central living area, not only inviting an abundance of natural light into the space but also visually extending the house beyond its four walls. Large windows and concertina doors dominate one side of the room. The adjacent tree-lined courtyard is partially covered by the bedroom above it, creating a sheltered space that becomes part of the living room as soon as the doors are slid to one side. On the opposite wall, the metre of space between the house and the fence (redundant in most houses) has been used to create the impression of more room. Windows either side of a pebble fireplace reveal a long,

tranquil garden running up the side of the house that even manages to accommodate a fishpond. The kitchen is at the rear of the property and is contemporary in style and features. Ilve and Miele appliances fit snugly in among the CaesarStone benchtops and glossy white cabinetry, including two large pantries. Windows continue up the open staircase, which leads to accommodation on the second floor. The main bedroom is at the front of the house, a position that not only affords it the luxury of a private balcony but also seclusion from the other two bedrooms at the rear. Decorative screens conceal a wall of built-in cupboards, creating a walk-in-wardrobe without reducing the size of the room. A tiled en suite with a double vanity is tucked behind it. It’s a cutting-edge, low-maintenance design, right down to the details. From drawers in the built-in television cabinet specifically measured to hold DVDs to the shelf in the entry hall designed for you to drop off your keys as you walk in, every conceivable convenience has been considered. \ JO DAVY property@theweeklyreview.com.au

While the deep front garden of this property promises to keep green-thumbs happy, the backyard encourages leisure with its large deck and a solar-heated pool. The residence is a freestanding Californian bungalow. The entrance foyer has Baltic pine floorboards, plate rails and a deco ceiling. Leadlight doors link the foyer to the living room and adjoining dining room, both of which display period detail complemented by modern finishes such as plantation shutters. The fireplace in the living room has contemporary marble surrounds. The fireplace in the dining room has a deco-style, timber mantel with columns and mirrors. Contemporary and fresh, the kitchen zone has stainless-steel appliances, pale stone benchtops and white cabinetry. Adjoining meals and family areas benefit from glass-walled outlooks and the meals area opens to a covered terrace. Glass doors in the family area open to the rear entertainment deck, which has a retractable canopy and a built-in barbecue. The indigo-rendered wall with water-feature makes a cool backdrop. Beyond the deck, the glass-fenced pool and sandstone-terraced areas are edged by neat greenery. A timber screen towards the rear of the property hides three sheds/man-caves. The family bathroom has a spa bath. Two of the three bedrooms have en suites. Ducted heating and airconditioning add further comfort. Proximity to E.E. Gunn Reserve, Carnegie train station and Glenhuntly Primary School enhances its location. \ KAY KEIGHERY

People fond of things art deco are likely to appreciate this two-storey residence. Curved boundary walls and correspondingly curved windows give the façade a softness of line. The small court location enhances property privacy. The side drive leads to lock-up single garage. An entrance porch complements the driveway with a brick-defined archway. The interior is freshly painted. Front living and dining rooms are linked by a keyhole cutaway. The living room has an old-fashioned gas fireplace and both rooms have diamante chandeliers. Tucked behind the dining room is a study or fourth bedroom. Particularly spacious, the family room opens to the rear terrace. There’s a cute brekkie bar in the kitchen along with Formica benchtops and ample cabinetry. Solid-timber balustrade borders the staircase. Upstairs, three big bedrooms, a bathroom and separate toilet flow from a hallway; the main bedroom has a dressing room.

Though this two-storey residence might appear to be a period piece; it was actually built in the 1980s. Georgian-style architecture establishes a timeless feel and rooms are larger than in most modern houses. The corner block means two street frontages and the main entrance faces the side street, as do automatic gates to a double garage. High fencing renders the north-facing front garden private and an ideal environment for the saltwater pool and spa. The backyard combines lawn and paved areas. Attached to the garage are a home office and bathroom. Combined formal lounge and dining areas have ornate ceilings and twin fireplaces. Semi-open to the kitchen, meals and family area, the living room has a high, peaked celling and a trapdoor to a wine cellar. CaesarStone benchtops and Smeg appliances feature in the contemporary kitchen, as does a massive walk-in pantry. The family area has two skylights and a glazed wall to the full-width rear verandah. \ KAY KEIGHERY

You could hear a pin drop in this peaceful cul-de-sac in Bentleigh East. No. 4 is a grand Georgian-style house, with a red-brick façade, set back from the street. The stained-glass-and-timber door is built within a large glass archway that extends to the height of the house. An opulent entrance of marble-style floors, high ceilings and open spaces is a fitting prelude to the grandeur of the remainder of the house. The hallway leads to the kitchen, which has granite benchtops and white cabinetry. It shares the space with a lounge and meals area. Huge, imposing hedges line the backyard and ensure privacy. The staircase spirals to the second storey, where all four bedrooms are located. Three of the bedrooms branch off from the retreat area at the front and share a bathroom. The large main bedroom at the back has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite. This house is in the highly prized McKinnon Secondary College zone. \ ELIZABETH ANILE

This double-fronted weatherboard is in the sought-after Gardenvale school zone and close to the Martin Street shopping strip, parklands and public transport. The large parcel of land makes it ideal for developers, but is well equipped for families looking to be in the centre of everything. Three bedrooms are at the front of the house and share a bathroom with a bath. The interior has polished wooden floors, cream walls and high ceilings. Next is the expansive combined lounge, meals and kitchen with teal cabinetry and high benchtops with a built-in breakfast bench. A separate laundry is nearby. The huge backyard means there is plenty of space to extend, probably even adding a pool. The backyard has an elevated decked porch overlooking the lawn, while a driveway extends down the side of the house. As Nepean Highway is nearby, the house is well connected to suburbs such as St Kilda and also the CBD, and to top if off, Brighton Beach isn’t far away. \ eLIZABeTH ANILe
