Taste for true grit SHANE DELIA’S SPICE JOURNEY HAS TAKEN HIM FROM THE WESTERN SUBURBS TO THE FOOTHILLS OF MOUNT LEBANON

I

n The Weekly Review’s photographic studio, Shane Delia is discussing the secrets of making a perfect meringue – a clean bowl, egg whites at room temperature and slowly raining in the caster sugar … Delia lives and breathes food and flavours and it’s been that way since he was 13. He grew up in a hard-working Maltese family in the western suburbs and his teenage years were a challenge. Teachers at Keilor Downs Secondary College probably didn’t have the young Shane Delia earmarked for the success he now enjoys. “I had some learning difficulties,” he says frankly. “I was diagnosed with ADD eventually but teachers just thought I was a bad kid who didn’t want to listen. They were always kicking me out of class. I wanted to succeed but I didn’t have the tools. You keep hearing ‘you’re bad, you’re dumb’ and, when you are trying really hard and getting bad marks, you think you’re stupid.” A correct diagnosis and medication turned things around for Delia, 38, but by then he already had his heart and mind set on leaving school to start cooking. “When I was given the drugs I needed, I smashed it – suddenly I was getting A+,” he smiles. “I’d come home and go to my room to do my homework. But it was too late and anyway, I’d go insane in an office all day! I wanted to cook but it wasn’t glamorous then. People who flunked out of school or who came out of prison were cooks!” Delia’s extended family were tradies – electricians, bricklayers and mechanics – but those trades lacked the creativity he craved. “My happiest times were eating and cooking with my family. Every Sunday we had lunch with Mum’s side of the family and dinner with my paternal grandfather – 50 or 60 people,” he recalls. “I had a block-release apprenticeship at the Gordon Institute in Geelong when I was 17 and Dad and my grandfather would drive me there after the family dinner. I was boarding in a dodgy place, earning a few hundred bucks a week and my grandfather would slip me a few bucks.

T H E W E E K LY R E V I E W

“Dad came to Australia at 17 with a couple of bucks and worked in the Dunlop factory for 36 years. He began as a tyre builder, educated himself and left as a director in south-east Asia setting up new factories. He’s the most selfless person I know. Before I got my licence and I was cooking I didn’t finish work until 11.30pm and the last train home to the western suburbs was a V Line at 10.30pm. Dad picked me up every night, put on the L-plates, I drove home and he’d be up at five o’clock the next morning for work.” The structure and hierarchy he found in the kitchen suited Delia and he still seeks that structure and routine in his working day. He worked at Eden on the Park and Sofitel before becoming sous chef at Chateau Yering.

“I’m not saying I’m gifted, but I like food and I understand flavours – it’s the only thing that comes easy to me.” “I worked in pubs and pasta shops and hotels and then I realised there was another world of internationally renowned chefs who were innovators. They were highly skilled and wealthy and I wanted to be part of that,” he says. “A lot of cooks work hard and there is that pocket who work hard and they’re gifted. I’m not saying I’m gifted, but I like food and I understand flavours – it’s the only thing that comes easy to me. I see something and instantly know five things that will go with it and how I’m going to use it.” In 2008, Delia opened Maha with George Calombaris – in 2013 he became sole owner of the award-winning Middle Eastern restaurant. It’s named after Delia’s wife, whom he married in 2007 but the couple had known each other for years. “Maha worked with my sister, Sarah, as a

hairdresser. I’d see her around and would tell Sarah ‘Maha’s cute’ but Sarah would tell me to leave her alone because she had a boyfriend. Then they broke up and Sarah suggested we go out. Maha says she had to convince herself, but I was persistent. “We married in 2007 and I wouldn’t be where I am without Maha’s support. She brings it back to the simple things all the time. I find it hard to get out of bed some mornings and sometimes I find myself upset for no reason. But every time, Maha pulls me back. I would have left me five times! I


his favourite American rap artist who was shot dead in Los Angeles in 1997. He’s wearing a jacket bearing the face of the rapper that he bought in New York and couldn’t resist slipping into his suitcase. Delia discovered Biggie Smalls when he was 14 during a family trip to Detroit to see relatives. “I saw hip-hop culture for the first time and I immersed myself in this music that was so powerful but so wrong, too, then. You were a ratbag if you listened to that music,” he laughs. “But I related to the messages in the stories. I didn’t live in a ghetto but I was a kid who was under-achieving and the music gives you a voice. I heard Biggie Smalls and thought he was an amazing lyricist and many of his songs were uplifting. There’s a song called Juicy – he talks about the dreams he had of being something else and of achieving that. It’s the anthem for me.” Delia is a self-confessed perfectionist and creating Biggie Smalls became all-consuming. He spent $800,000 just on the fit-out and soon launched the Biggie Smalls Food Truck, and in September last year, another Biggie Smalls at the Windsor end of Chapel Street. “I didn’t want another kebab shop. I got excited with it and wanted it to be special. Rap has an element of bling and glamour and I wanted Biggie Smalls to feel authentic to the last detail. My favourite kebab on the menu is the Juicy kebab. It’s tasty as hell! Have it old school with hot sauce – rocket fuel!” he grins. “If I do something it has to be 100 per cent. We re-fitted Maha 12 months ago and spent a million bucks but I still wasn’t happy, so two months ago I put another $200,000 in to it.”

think it’s the pressure I put on myself. When I was a cook it was just me. Now I have millions of dollars of debt and 80 employees with families to think about so I have to stay focused. “I hate the term ‘celebrity chef’ with a passion. I am at the businesses all the time. I take food out to people – I’m not peeling the carrots – but I’m there and I write every dish with my team.” That focus led Delia to Biggie Smalls Kbabs – a kebab shop with a difference on Smith Street in Collingwood. Delia named the flagship venue after

elia’s Spice Journey series on SBS brought his passion for food to a national audience and he credits the show with enhancing his culinary capabilities. It took him from Iran and Morocco to the foothills of Mount Lebanon. “I am 10 times the cook I was before I did the show,” he stresses. “I landed in Lebanon in season one with a backpack and heap of notes. I never did any training and it was hard work. There was conflict in Syria and at one point we were filming in a market in Morocco and I was p****d on by a donkey. “I’ve been told by SBS there won’t be another Spice Journey, although I’d love to do something similar in southern India where the spice trade began. And I’d like to do a Spice Journey in New York – the biggest melting pot in the world.” His success and popularity have attracted some high-profile partnerships. Delia is a proud Western Bulldogs ambassador and a supporter of Melbourne City. But one of his most rewarding partnerships is with Mercedes-Benz.

For a motorsport lover, taking part in a Celebrity Grand Prix and driving a car he never dreamed he’d own is still a bit of a surprise. “When I was young I built cars with an uncle,” Delia says. “He re-built old Holdens and he and Dad loved motorsport. My first car was a $600 piece of s**t that was in my uncle’s paddock with grass growing through the floor. I spent a year working on it – a Nissan/Datsun Pulsar. My other uncle sprayed cars as a hobby and he said he’d paint it for me. I had no money so he told me to collect his halfempty tins and mix them and that’s what colour my car would be. It was pink and he put all these metallic flakes in it – so much in that my car was all glitter. But I drove it for three years. “I still don’t understand why Mercedes-Benz wanted me. Think about that boy with ADD getting expelled from school – did you ever think he’d be a brand ambassador for Mercedes-Benz? Every morning I get up and there’s a Mercedes C63 sitting in my garage. How good’s that?” Delia has swapped the Sunbury home he’d lived in since his 20s for a larger family home – but he stayed true to his roots, choosing Moonee Ponds over swankier options south of the river. “We looked in South Yarra and Toorak but they’re not my home. I have to stay true to who I am,” he says. And Delia looks forward to being his true self on Sundays when he gets to spend time with Maha, his young children, son, Jude, and daughter, Jayda. “Monday nights we have dinner at Mum’s house – my brother, sister, our kids and cousins. I work Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. On Saturday my daughter goes to Arabic school and I pick her up and we have lunch and then I go to work. “I love Sundays. I take my daughter to Vic Market early. We have a look at what to buy, have a burek, come home and I cook brunch or late lunch. Then I’m on the couch, chilling out and holding my kids.” Away from the kitchen, Delia keeps fit and focused by boxing. He trains three mornings a week, spending another two mornings lifting weights in the gym. “I box to keep fit and manage my weight and it makes you stand up straight and confident,” he says. “I’m a bit of a recluse and like being around home or going to the supermarket in my trackies and a T-shirt. “Last night I got home about five o’clock and there was nothing in the pantry so I ran down to the shop in a dodgy pair of trackies given to me for a charity cricket match last year. I don’t care.” ● BIGGIE SMALLS \ 86 Smith Street, Collingwood; 36 Chapel Street, Windsor; check the website for food truck locations. ● biggiesmalls.com.au

Keeping up with the latest drink trends can be downright exhausting, so I’ve asked the owner of craft liquor emporium Casa de Vinos, Jose Dymenstein, for some help. The former winemaker, who opened his Port Melbourne business six years ago, spends roughly 20 hours a week researching who is drinking what in Australia and around the globe. “The trends are set in Europe, and we follow them,” says the 17-year industry veteran. Perhaps the most interesting development he has noticed is the way Melbourne’s recent love affair with craft beer is giving way to a fascination with spirits. It’s no longer sexy to bring wine to a dinner party. Even bringing the latest craft is losing its charm – people are searching for something exotic. The Uruguay native says 2017 was the year of gin. “It’s killing it,” he says. “We have more than 100 gin distillers in Australia, so it would take you more than a year to try them all.” This year will still be strong for the spirit, Dymenstein says, but by the end of the year it will move towards Australian whisky. “It’s huge now, but it will be way bigger because stocks of Australian whisky have been building for two or three years. It’s innate for humans to constantly want to find the next fun thing to do,” he says. “I don’t see customers getting excited about wines or beers, but when you talk about gin or whisky, they are really into it.” ●

FOOD

Merah My first thought when I walk into Merah is that I’m in the wrong place. Opened by the Nasi Lemak House duo in October, it looks more like a secret Gorman headquarters than a Malaysian restaurant – salmon archways, organic wooden tables and a colour-blocked banquette. My second thought is how “inner north” it is. Organic and biodynamic wines sit alongside traditional teh tarik and vegans are welcome, if not encouraged. Translucent tapioca parcels in chilli soy are stretched with mushroom, cabbage and bamboo stuffing and spoon-worthy plum sauce accompanies buttery curry puffs. My third thought is FOMO Thai. I miss out on jackfruit curry (unavailable) and spicy crab (pre-order only), but seafood is a stellar substitute: pipis pungent with shrimp and kaffir lime and a lightly fried barramundi fillet soaking up tamarind sauce. Nasi lemak, thick roti canai and beef rendang are there for traditionalists. My final thought at Merah is that I’m ready for dessert. But, there isn’t any. Will anyone judge me for ordering the fried chicken with sambal mayo instead. ●

Hot on the heels of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Melbourne Theatre Company presents The Children, a chilling new drama set in the wake of a nuclear disaster. We spoke to star Pamela Rabe.

How would you describe the play? “The Children is a tightly packed, complex and entertaining 90 minutes in the theatre, written by a young, very hot playwright called Lucy Kirkwood. It’s about three people in their 60s who all worked for a nuclear power station. Two are married and the third comes to visit, with shattering consequences.”

Give us one reason to go see it. “You’re seeing the very best of exciting new writing.” ●

We’re going through a golden age for female actors at the moment – we have an exultation of riches.

movie, especially when Anastasia’s old boss, Jack Hyde, comes into play and the plot turns into a thriller … and marriage is a test in itself, too.

How does Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele’s relationship continue to grow? I think their relationship grows in a more positive and relatable way. Since they do get married they become more like a regular couple.

What do you think director James Foley has brought to the second and third films? James is great and very energetic! It wasn’t easy to get on a train like this that had already left the station. Yet, he managed to elevate it all and make it his own, while also respecting what was done with Fifty Shades of Grey.

But then their relationship is put to the test? Yes, it is challenged in a major way in this third

had some time off to muck around on jet skis or swim while we were shooting the honeymoon scenes. Those were easy days at work …

her come back to him on her terms in Fifty Shades Darker. What is the situation regarding that balance of power in Fifty Shades Freed? They sort of meet in the middle and reach the kind of compromise that marriage often brings to a relationship, trying to make things work as a team, rather than have either of them call the shots. And what can you specifically say about the way your character is behaving now? I think Christian is fair, understanding and more human in this third movie, compared to how he was when we first met him – when he was hard to understand and impenetrable.

You have great chemistry on screen with Dakota, but you also both get along very well. We are very fond of each other. Dakota (Johnson) and I had to have chemistry to make this work from the get-go, and now we will continue to be friends despite it coming to an end. We have gone through this journey together. I believe we will always have each other’s back precisely because of the impact these roles have had on our careers and our personalities. It is quite a bond that lasts forever.

A character that complex must be a great challenge for an actor. Yes, playing him has been a very satisfying challenge. I feel it was trickier in the first movie, as I had to strike that balance of being distant and cold, but at the same time somewhat likeable.

Apart from the two main characters, what other relevant players appear in Fifty Shades Freed? The main one is Jack Hyde, who was already introduced in Fifty Shades Darker Darker, but really shakes things up in this third film of the series. He is the source of much of the drama and action.

You also travelled to Europe for this shoot, right? Yes, we did that towards the end of it. After wrapping up in Vancouver, we flew to France, which was nice because the schedule wasn’t too crazy. We

The movie also has humour, right? Yes, Christian gets to provide some of it as well, which didn’t happen in Fifty Shades of Grey. It all goes back to him becoming more human in this

And do you and Dakota have a giggle on set, too? We have to! I remember we couldn’t stop laughing during the wedding scene when we realised that the same guy who was with us in the elevator sequence of the first movie was sitting there in the front row. Life is too short and you have to enjoy it. Dakota and I make each other laugh far too easily. You have to respect your job, but also have fun because we are actors and our mission is to entertain people. So, how are you going to do that if you are not even capable of enjoying yourself? That goes for every job. My father was a surgeon, but he never took himself too seriously and is one of the funniest people I have ever met. Who is worse at keeping a straight face, Dakota or you? Dakota, because once she really laughs you just can’t stop her – to the point where she is even crying and has to step away. ● FIFTY SHADES FREED \ in cinemas nationally from February 8.

Leisurely lunches THE STRESS-FREE GUIDE TO HEALTHY SCHOOL EATING

I

get it: life is busy. There are only so many hours in the day and finding or making time to head to the supermarket, cook dinner and then prepare your kids’ lunch for school can be quite a challenge. Add to this family fussiness and supermarkets full of unhealthy school snacks and before you know it you’re the proud owner of the entire contents of aisle four. Or if it’s not this, it’s your child insisting that every other kid orders their lunch, which we know simply isn’t true. I know it can seem easier to let the usual culprits fill your trolley – yoghurts, roll-ups, muesli bars and fruit cups and, yes, most kids do burn through energy like there’s no tomorrow. This does not mean they should be given a lunch-box jam-packed with

sugar and salt simply because it is the easy option. Kids need to be fuelled with nutritious snacks and meals throughout the day to ensure they have the energy and brain power for all that learning and, of course, playing. My motto is all about progress, not perfection. So, don’t get me wrong; a tasty snack from aisle four or a lunch order on the odd occasion is totally fine. Ensuring your kids are eating mostly healthy foods throughout the day will help to keep them alert, focused and retaining information to assist with their learning. If you’re unsure of how to pack your kids a healthy lunch, I am here to help. Here are my top tips to ensure your kids enjoy their healthy lunches.

Puppy carers needed!

Take care of a puppy and help change a life… Being a Seeing Eye Dog puppy carer is possibly the most enjoyable way to volunteer. Not only do you get to experience the joy of looking after an adorable puppy for about 12 months, without any of the associated costs – you will also enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you are assisting someone who is blind to live the life they choose. Seeing Eye Dogs Australia is urgently in need of loving homes for puppies in your area.

For more information please contact Seeing Eye Dogs Australia on 1800 037 773 or visit the website www.seda.org.au

1. EDUCATE YOUR KIDS ON THE ADVANTAGES

3. YOUR FREEZER IS YOUR BEST FRIEND

OF HEALTHY EATING CHOICES

No one wants to spend time whipping up a new lunch from scratch every morning (or the night before). Dedicate “an hour of power” on weekends to prepare snacks and meals in batches for the freezer. Zucchini slice, bacon-and-egg muffins, veggie patties, nut-free bliss balls/muesli bars … the options are endless.

ISTOCK

Teaching your kids about the benefits of food and how certain types give them fuel for their afterschool sport, or to help them grow, will assist in establishing healthy habits early on and serve as an incentive for them to make healthier choices. Keep it quick, keep it simple and make it a game, not a lecture. If you feel like your advice is falling on deaf ears because it’s coming from mum or dad, see if their favourite teacher or sports coach can relay the same information.

4. DON’T FORGET FRUIT AND VEG

Sliced fruit and veg is an easy and healthy lunch-box filler that goes perfectly with a side of dip. Carrot, celery and capsicum with hummus is a go-to snack that is popular with kids and adults.

2. PREPARE LUNCH TOGETHER

5. MAKE HEALTHY FOOD FUN

Make lunch-box prep a family affair. Not only is this an opportunity to spend some time together in the kitchen, you’ll also be teaching them how to make lunch on their own. Before you know it they’ll be doing it all by themselves. Well, maybe not, but understanding and recognising foods is the first step to a healthier relationship with them.

Some kids are more visual eaters than others so making their food look appealing may mean their lunch-box comes home empty. Colourful fruit and veggies are naturally appealing to kids or slice their snacks/sandwiches into interesting shapes using cookie cutters. ●

It’s not me, it’s you BREAKING UP WITH YOUR SMART DEVICES MIGHT BE THE RIGHT CALL, WRITES MYKE BARTLETT

W

e’ve all made new year’s resolutions about eating better or exercising more – most of which don’t last beyond January 3. But a new resolution is shooting to the top of the selfimprovement charts. Author Catherine Price says almost everyone she talks to is resolved to spending less time on their smartphone. Her book, How To Break Up With Your Phone, is designed to make this split as painless as possible, offering a step-by-step guide to unplugging your life in a tidy 30 days. While Price doesn’t think any of us should bin our smartphones (they’re incredibly useful tools, after all), she hopes the book will help people question whether all that screen-time is really making them happy. “It’s starting to be acknowledged that they’re bad for us,” she says. “There was a time when people didn’t acknowledge smoking was bad for you and a lot more people were hooked. I don’t think you have to get off Facebook, but I think you should get the app off your phone and make sure you’re using it because you want to, not on reflex.” She points out that most Silicon Valley tech

designers keep their own children far away from devices, aware of their addictive powers. The late Steve Jobs, for one, wouldn’t let his brood handle an iPad. Even if you think you’ve got your phone under your thumb, you’ll likely be surprised by the addiction survey Price includes in the opening chapter. For her, it was becoming a parent that made her realise she had a problem. “The motivation for me in writing the book was that we’d just had a baby and at some point I was feeding her and looking at my phone. I saw her looking at me while I was looking at my phone and had one of those out-of-body moments. I thought, ‘Oh my god, I don’t want that to be my daughter’s experience of what her mother is’.” Although Price has no interest in being that judgmental parent, she does reveal that her research revealed a spike in playground injuries when 3G service was made available to parents. Wounded kids aside, she’s found taking control of her phone has made a real and positive difference to her life. She’s used the free time to finally begin guitar lessons, finding a new “real-life” community of friends she now sees once a week.

Breaking up is never easy, but the book helps the reader create new habits to resist the phone-check reflex. In addition, Price has built a website offering helpful downloads, an amusing video “intervention” for phone-addicted friends and a 30-day email support program. Her experience is that addicts will notice a positive difference straight away. “I think the moment you start thinking about it, you will notice a change. Just reading this article is going to change people’s attitude to their phone. Just reading the title of the book. If you have that tiny Emperor’s New Clothes moment, I think the change will be pretty profound.” ●

● The Choke by Sofie Laguna, Allen and Unwin, $32.99

MICHAEL RAY A NER AY

Miles Franklin Award-winning writer Sofie Laguna – her book, The Choke, was released last year – is bringing up her young two sons, Sonny and Milo, with her husband, Marc McBride, an illustrator of children’s books, on a big block in a rural suburb near Eltham. The couple both work from their home. “It will all eventually be shmick and dreamy, but it’s a big ’80s brick home that we’re slowly changing,” Laguna says. “We had a second child soon after we moved in, which slowed things down considerably as far as renovating plans went. It’s hard for me to get my house looking posh, like other people.” The style of her house, she says, is “eccentric, folky and earthy”, heavily influenced by her upbringing. “I like character and warmth, but I have a strong aesthetic and it’s hard living in a house that needs a lot of work.” Laguna is not a passionate cook. “Things that I cook taste good, but I’m not an explorer. My passion does not lie there. A girl cannot be all things in this world, can she?” ●

his new build by Campi Developments puts contemporary finesse under the spotlight. Spatially efficient, neutral in a modern way and fitted out to a T, the residence offers untarnished appearances and an indoor-outdoor drift ideal for leaving doors ajar during warmer months. The location is ideal. Close to Caulfield park, trams, shops and a host of respected schools, it pairs convenience with under-the-radar prestige. The facade is an exercise in elegant geometry, with textured brick gracing the ground level and the predominantly glazed frontage of the second storey shielded by external screening. The automatic double garage has a door to the entrance hall, off which you’ll find storage, a powder room and European laundry. Spreading out along engineered oak floors, the openplan kitchen, dining and living area affords room for family members to gather. The ease of entertaining means guests are also likely to be part of the picture. A gas fireplace and display shelves welcome the introductory living area. The ensuing kitchen flaunts marble-look stone surfaces, a walk-in pantry and an array of Smeg appliances including a coffee machine. Sliding glass doors either side of the dining and kitchen areas invite breezes to flow on through. Take the doors on the left to a paved terrace, where the overhang from the second storey fashions a sheltered space up for outdoors enjoyment in rain, hail or shine. The terrace adjoins a deck, with both bordered by minimalist landscaping. A study behind the hub provides a secluded spot for working from home and/or conquering homework. The second storey maintains the urbane approach. To the fore, the carpeted main bedroom has a stone-topped storage unit, fitted walk-in wardrobe and an oversized en suite with a twin vanity. While the bedroom’s glass wall to the street ensures ample light, the external screening guarantees privacy. At the rear, two carpeted bedrooms with built-in wardrobes share a beautifully-tiled bathroom and separate toilet. Heating and cooling systems keep things temperate throughout. And if the low-maintenance factor is high on your list of lifestyle priorities, there’s a serious lack of maintenance chores here. ● KAY AY KEIGHERY property@domain.com.au

The eye-catching facade of this house suggests modern styling within. What lies beyond delivers the goods for contemporary family living; with two storeys of immaculately staged spaces and a beaut little backyard for socialising outdoors. The double garage has a door to the interior and another to a side path. The first space off the entrance hall is the lounge, study or fourth bedroom as desired. Past the laundry, powder room and under-stairs storage, the open-plan kitchen, dining and family areas present with double doors to the side deck and sliding glass doors at the rear. The kitchen has granite benchtops, Blanco and Miele appliances and a walk-in pantry. Skylights over the dining and living area boost the natural illumination. Slide back the rear doors for connection with the covered entertainment deck, beyond which the artificially-grassed backyard requires no maintenance whatsoever. Tucked at the rear of the second storey, the panoramic main bedroom comes with a roomy walk-in wardrobe and deluxe en suite with double vanity and spa bath. ● KAY KEIGHERY AGENT \ Gary Peer 9526 1999 PRICE \ $1.9 million – $2.09 million AUCTION \ February 18 at 11.30am Scan the code This property delivers on its promise

Units are something Elsternwick does exceptionally well, and this is a prime example. At the rear of the six-villa complex, it’s a single-level, brick affair with all the commodities of a house. A central hall provides a roomy core. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans and built-in wardrobes. Between them is a modern bathroom with bath and shower, and a powder room. Blue-glass splashbacks add a colour pop in the Bosch kitchen. The linked living and dining rooms have timber floors and floor-to-ceiling windows. Wrapping the rear of the residence, there’s an L-shaped garden, with access to a second powder room attached to the garage. ● KAY KEIGHERY
