o matter how accustomed we become to the reality of the 24/7 news broadcast, there is never anything ordinary about witnessing disaster in real time. As the roiling, black waves of sea, dirt and debris thundered at speed across the north-east of Japan in the aftermath of the 2011 earthquake, I felt that spiralling sense of panic as I realised that, yet again, we were watching death and destruction via satellite from the safety of our lounge room. All was intact and in its place in our comfortable corner of the world, as 20,000 people were wiped out literally before our eyes. I haven’t been able to watch much of the footage ever since. Our family has a strong connection to Japan. My husband was a correspondent for several years, the boys were educated there and I spent a great deal of time travelling with them to many corners of these intriguing islands. I felt the earthquake and tsunami as a personal blow. Friends there were deeply affected and their lives thrown into chaos. But underpinning all of the shock and terror after one of the greatest natural disasters to befall this beautiful country, was the sinking sense of fear and distrust of the Japanese government and

authorities to respond swiftly and effectively, to take good care of their people, and to tell the truth about the disaster. We just knew they wouldn’t, that they simply couldn’t tell the truth. And they didn’t. My ABC colleague Mark Willacy, long-time Tokyo correspondent, was there covering the disaster, and his book about the tsunami and, specifically, the disaster at the Fukushima nuclear reactor, Fukushima: Japan’s Tsunami and the Inside Story of the Nuclear Meltdowns, reveals the depth of the cozy culture of media protection, paternalistic bureaucracy and misinformation, and community suspicion in Japan. As the scale of the disaster at this old and poorly run nuclear reactor became more widely known – the tsunami wiped out the cooling systems leading to explosions and a nuclear meltdown – institutional Japan reverted to type, protecting powerful interests and connections and refusing to confirm the most obvious of truths out of a patronising desire not to spread alarm, as well as a base fear of legal consequences. Willacy writes of press conferences with the plant’s operator, TEPCO, where freelancers asking tough questions were shouted down by journalists who had

enjoyed TEPCO largesse over the years. He tells of the Japanese media abandoning the Fukushima zone when fears about radioactive fallout were raised, returning only when shamed into doing their job by an online plea for help from the gutsy mayor of Minamisōma City. Journalists who criticised TEPCO were sacked and it often fell to the foreign media, or the brave independent outsiders, to slowly reveal over the ensuing months the cover-up about the true extent of the nuclear disaster. As Willacy points out, the fallout was not as big as Chernobyl, but Fukushima was the largest nuclear sea contamination, and his reporting on the still-unknown consequences of the nuclear fallout on the unsuspecting local population is painful to read. He writes of families told that the diagnosis of a cyst on their child’s thyroid is nothing to worry about; and that so little is known about the total effect on the all-important sea stocks for nearby fishing villages. The current cynicism about the trustworthiness of what is now called the mainstream media seems to have escaped the boundaries of the fringes, and is now an accepted truism. Journalists such as Willacy form the strong sea-wall against this tide of mistrust. \

Crab bEignEts

(darrian traynor)

ome time in the early stages of our night a timber-backed wine list was launched with force onto our table. I jumped. As my mischievous children and teasing younger brother will attest, it’s not hard to get a nervous reaction out of me. My dining companion that night is made of sterner stuff. He flinched too. Maybe I’m being overly sensitive (food writer’s prerogative), but that it was the wine menu that landed seemed pointed. It could have been mistimed mid-stride by someone crossing the room, but we had asked to see the food menu before selecting our wine. It’s a peculiarity of mine – or that’s often how I’m made to feel – when I’m reviewing. The food commands my attention foremost and the wine is an integral perk. I do study the list intently – I just don’t drink much on the job. (A former editor goes further; she demands to see the dessert list too.) There were a lot of things we liked about GG, a two-month-old diverse diner in the former Mercy Hospital building – it’s a restaurant, a wine bar/cellar, a pizzeria and a private function space – but the timing of the service on a quiet Sunday night mostly missed the mark. When we ordered food it arrived too rapidly; our wine glasses were still empty. The gap between first course and second was truncated. There was, I must add, one pleasant and helpful waitress who did tidy up loose ends. GG 150, named for its location near the MCG at the base of 150 Clarendon Street, one Melbourne’s most expensive apartment complexes, combines the talents of chef Paul Dunlop, hospitality entrepreneur Rocky Veneziano and sommelier Gianluca Montebelli (I don’t think Montebelli was working the night we dined). His wine list is international, sophisticated and plausibly priced. Our selection, a 2009 Skillogalee cabernet blend from the Clare Valley, was chosen mostly for our larger courses. Dunlop (ex Bistro Thierry and St Katherine’s) has put together a smart menu that’s effective for a day-to-night venue and considers the migration of weekend football fans. There are pizza and pasta options and a selection of small, medium and large dishes. Weekend breakfasts include orange and yoghurt pancakes and barbecued corn fritters. I like Dunlop’s menu descriptions. They say “trust me, I’m the chef”, rather than proffering a showy, laborious list of ingredients. “Fried gnocchi ends with spiced tomato sugo” told us all we needed to know. “Crab beignets, sesame, coconut, grapefruit” left me curious and chicken wings “crumbed, smoked almond vinaigrette” indicated crunchy, flavoursome poultry. All three dishes arrived at once, with a thud and a hasty retreat. The flour-dusted, deep-fried tiny dumplings were light and creamy, their accompanying

Ben Thomas’ weekly wine selections

tomato sauce was dark, lovingly thickened and held a spunky nip of chilli. The beignets were delicate clouds of finely minced crab meat, lightened by egg whites, given body with coconut milk and rolled in cornflour, then ebony and ivory sesame seeds. Their light, Asian-style dressing and segments of pink grapefruit added acidity. Panko-crumbed chicken wings appealed less. They had been long-poached in a rich stock and mostly deboned. Each one sat in a circle of mayonnaise, topped with roasted almonds and some micro herbs. The smoked almond vinaigrette was bright and fresh, but it all blended oddly with the taste of the poultry. Was it a clash with the dressing from the beignets? I had barely touched the now-poured wine. Meat from the rotisserie – a St Katherine’s influence for Dunlop, who challenged himself to do it better, with hotter coals and more wood and smoke – is sold at market price and varies daily. It is most often lamb at night and whole chickens at lunch, but sometimes

there’s pork belly, and fish is on the agenda. Our lamb was magnificent – moist, tender and smoky, with a texture and aroma reminiscent of roasted ham hock. The intense flavour, induced by long marination, copious quantities of wood and the slow heat of the coals, was a standout. Impressive too was a duck confit, given a pleasing acidic balance with the use of dried cherries and some cooking time in apple juice. Dunlop’s take on a custard tart was a classy finish. Its crème brulee-style filling, delicate pastry shell and accompanying salted caramel were in pleasing harmony. It could have been enhanced by a Sauternes – perhaps the 2005 La Tertre du Lys d’Or from Bordeaux – but we didn’t ask for the list again. \ to rEad MorE rEviEws
