Review\ MOUTHiNG OFF Be CAReFUL OUT THeRe Journalists receive a lot of mail. Even in the form of good, old-fashioned snail mail. Press releases, press kits, newsletters, books, documents. And, of course, the more meaningful communications: postcards, angry disputations, four closely typed pages of intimate revelation or whispered conspiracy theory. You try to avoid any letters that feature paragraphs written entirely in CAPITAL LETTERS, with UNDERLINING, or sentences that travel up the sides of the page. More often than not these letters allege Jewish conspiracies of one kind or another and never have a return address. But the missives that arrive via email or, increasingly, the so-called Twitterverse, highlight the eternal importance of engaging one’s brain before opening one’s mouth – or one’s keyboard. The act of writing a letter still takes some doing: getting the paper, putting it all down, the envelope, the stamp, the letter box … ah, forget about it – too much work. (Which is why in radio in particular we have a rule: if one person writes you a letter about it, then at

least 20 others were thinking it and simply couldn’t be bothered with the note.) In the Twitterverse – text first, think later! And away we go! I’ve spent time this week in the world of the Tweet variously locked in a debate about whether I really know what a CDO is (that’s a Collateralised Debt Obligation and you just stay away from any of them, OK?); adopting someone’s charming new hashtag for me (#completelyf---inguseless); raking over the coals of Bill Henson’s latest j’ accuse; and spreading the joy that are new-season broad beans. Is that time well spent? I’m not so sure … It’s just that unlike virtually every other email or written note I’ve sent this week (yes, this household sends old-fashioned mail, and a fair bit of it each week), this was real top-of-mind stuff, and if you’re not careful that can absorb precious hours of a busy day. It’s not that this place known as the Twitterverse is any more neurotic/angry/self-absorbed/nerdy than any other meeting place I’ve ever wandered through, but the teenage-like desire to rush in to join the happening crowd with bons mots and sly digs and gags and put-downs can become pretty puerile and, as @mushroomrooster would put it, #completelyf----inguseless.

dynamic, breathing example of just what the MIT boffins had in mind when they came up with the world wide web. Alerts from The New York Times, George Stephanopoulos, Fake Barack Obama, food writer Gael Greene and the New Republic flash across my screen all day and all night, and I’m connected immediately and democratically to worlds and ideas I enjoy. OK, I don’t have to read all of the election haiku that my colleague Annabel Crabb comes up with – but some of them are fun. It’s like eavesdropping on the best of the office banter without any of the time-wasting. And as I’m not out on the road with the leaders, I can lean on the surely exhausted Hayden Cooper to send me the mutterings from the back of the bus. It’s a zingingly fast conversation and an extraordinary example of connection in such disconnected times. It’s time-wasting and stupid, and informative and convenient. The trick is, like any decent conversation, to hold your tongue from time to time, and as Alice says, to not make personal remarks. Those you reserve for a letter. Preferably with lots of underlining. \

Review\ coveR stoRy Josh Piterman’s rise and rise in musical theatre hasn’t been without some dark times. On the eve of the Melbourne season of West Side Story, he spoke to PETER WILMOTH.

D

uring a break from his starring role in West Side Story, Josh Piterman is reflecting on his “lightbulb moment”, the decision to pursue a career in acting. At Wesley College, tennis and football were his passions, but when in year 12 he won a role as Tyrone Jackson in the school’s performance of Fame and then as Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar (“A good role for a Jewish boy,” he says), his fate was sealed. “It was the excitement of this epic spectacle. It was so much fun, I thought, ‘This is it’,” Piterman says. “I wasn’t particularly talented, I’d never had singing lessons, but I loved delving into emotions. A lot of actors like to act because it lets them escape from their own lives. For me, it was all about fun.”

bayside story Piterman then tailored his school life around his dream. “I quit maths halfway through year 12,” he says. “I did theatre, politics, English and French. I thought I could use them as a performer. Not so much maths. I had a conversation with the maths teacher on the way to music school one day. I said, ‘I’m not going to be coming to maths any more, I’m going to work on my singing’. “She was a bit stunned but OK with it. I had this focus in my eyes that said, ‘This kid knows exactly what he’s going to do’.” That focus has always been there, whether it was playing his beloved football with the junior club, the Glen Iris Gladiators, or becoming a proficient tennis player. “Within a year of picking up a tennis racquet I was in the first-eight team,” he says. And now that focus is serving him well in his first leading role. After a six-week season in Sydney, West Side Story begins its Melbourne season on August 19. It’s been an intense time performing under American director Joey McKneely, whose production of this show has been staged throughout the world. “He is very passionate and strong-minded and had a very good idea about what he wanted and how to get the emotion out of everyone,” Piterman says. “There were tears on most days. “Most musicals are fluffy, glitz and glam, tits and teeth. This one involves racism, violence and extreme love, and it requires such emotion in the performances. To convey such intense acting and intense plot you have to totally go for it.” There were no hints of a life on the stage when Piterman was growing up in Camberwell, where he spent the first 12 years of his life before moving to East St Kilda when he was in grade 6. It didn’t take long for Piterman to witness the local colour. “I remember unpacking boxes and there was a prostitute on the corner of my street. A man approached her, grabbed her arm and put money in her hand. For me it was ‘Welcome to St Kilda’. I was 12. I was cool with it. I’m one of those people who get shocked in hindsight. It’s not until six months later that I think, ‘That was really odd’.” He’s getting used to the fast-track nature of his life not

feeling odd any more. Piterman says: “Everything has happened early for me.” At 16 he was running over-age nightclubs in the city. “Everyone assumed I was 18. They thought, ‘He wears flashy clothes, he’s been around’.” And now, at a youthful 24, he’s engaged, to Hayley Missen, 23, whom he met while studying in Ballarat. They will marry in December. “We’ve planned a big Jewish wedding,” he says. “Way too many people. Hopefully I know them all, but I know that I won’t. There’ll be 275 guests. And that’s a small Jewish wedding. I went to one with 550 people.” In conversation, Piterman sounds confident, mature beyond his years and the product of a happy upbringing (he has a 27-year-old sister). His mother Hannah had always encouraged him to pursue what he wanted, and his father Leon eventually came to see that Josh could carve out a successful career on the stage. “My mum has totally encouraged me always,” he says. “She really does adore me and anything I want to do she puts her heart into. Too much sometimes. I have to say, ‘Mum, you don’t have to read every review, it’s not that important’. We have a relationship that is very open. There are no secrets, nothing is hidden.” Leon Piterman, a professor of medicine, took a little longer to embrace some of his son’s choices. “When I quit maths he was furious,” Piterman says. “He’d paid all these years for a private-school education and thought (about acting), ‘This kid doesn’t stand a chance in hell’.”


It was only when Josh won a place at the University of Ballarat Arts Academy and starred in several of its productions that his father changed his mind. “ ‘Yep, he’s got it’, he thought,” the young Piterman says. “He came around. He never said it but I knew. I could just feel it.” Piterman’s rise has been remarkable. After graduating from the University of Ballarat Arts Academy, he moved to Japan where he was lead singer in the Tokyo Disney Jazz Revue Big Band Beat. He then joined the pop-opera group the Ten Tenors, with whom he toured theatres, concert halls and opera houses across Europe. “It was a fantastic experience,” he says. “We sang in 25 countries in 18 months. It was an endless touring machine. And they were really good lads. It was a real boy’s club – opera meets AFL. Between shows we would have kick-to-kick, taking pack marks, out on the turps at night.” When he successfully auditioned for the lead role of Tony in West Side Story – playing opposite rising star Julie Goodwin as Maria – Piterman was overwhelmed. “It’s an indescribable feeling when you get that phone call from your agent,” he says. “I was in rehearsal for The Drowsy Chaperone (the musical comedy in which

out and said, ‘There’s a tiny chance that we may have a miracle, it could be benign’. A week later it was revealed that the cancer was indeed benign. It had been an emotional rollercoaster. “I was riding her wave,” he says. And then, with the good news, came a massive sense of relief. “I could breathe,” he says. Piterman says Rush had been an inspiration to him. “That guy is a mastermind, so inspirational, so intelligent. I would watch him in the show and then later take notes about how he did it and tried to use it in West Side Story. Most people, when rehearsals are over, the character is still, locked away. But Geoffrey is always working on it, always changing. He’s big on it never being the same each night.” The young actor witnessed Rush’s famed desire to help up-and-comers. “He was very supportive and loving towards me,” Piterman says. “When I got the role he said, ‘Your life’s going to change’. At the media launch I sang Maria and Geoffrey was crying. I’d watched him for so long doing amazing things on the screen and here’s Geoffrey watching a nobody who’s done no roles before and he’s crying. He’s a great guy.” Piterman might now be one of the country’s

“I know my rabbI won’t be happy wIth thIs quote, but I feel I am more passIonate about afl than I am about JudaIsm.” he performed with Geoffrey Rush for the Melbourne Theatre Company earlier this year) and I was stunned. And then I just cried. “It’s such a huge role and there’s so much stuff going on. It was a dream. I would literally have dreams about this. It’s a life-changing role. I now have to watch what I say to people on Facebook. I have to have a website now. I feel a part of me is a business now.” It should have been the happiest chapter of his short life, but two weeks into rehearsals Piterman received devastating news. His mother Hannah was diagnosed with a rare cancer. “All I could do was hope and pray and you sometimes couldn’t help but think the worst.” After some gruelling rehearsals, Piterman would retreat to his hotel room and try to deal with the fear he felt about his mother. “I’m not a drinker, didn’t have a Scotch or a red wine. I chatted to Hayley on the phone. She’s a rock. She’s always supported me.” Piterman took time out from rehearsals and flew from Sydney back to Melbourne and was there when his mother woke up from surgery. “She looked at me and couldn’t believe I was there and I couldn’t believe she was alive,” he says. “Dad was in the room. He led me main: Josh Piterman’s big break has come in West Side Story. (BLUEPRINT STUDIOS / CLOThINg By gODwIN ChaRLI)

blossoming stars but he remains grounded and is still in love with football, including the team he has followed all his life, the Western Bulldogs. “It’s a passion and it’s like a religion,” he says of AFL. “I know my rabbi won’t be happy with this quote, but I feel I am more passionate about AFL than I am about Judaism. I don’t know why it is that I have to look at (the website) afl.com.au half a dozen times a day. It’s a love like no other.” He is sorry for sacked champion Jason Akermanis. “I feel for him personally. To go in there and be told your services are no longer required would have been terrible.” As for Big Bad Bustling Barry Hall, Piterman says: “Fifty-seven goals from 16 games answers the question. (Hall bagged seven more after our interview and received personal congratulations from Prime Minister Julia Gillard for his efforts). For a guy who was on his last legs 12 months ago, it’s a big turnaround.” Piterman played – mainly at full-forward – for the Glen Iris Gladiators since the under-9s, with Righetti Oval in Kooyong as his home ground. “I was a much better mark than kick,” he says. “I should have kicked a lot more bags (of goals) than I did.” While football and musical theatre might appear to be strange bedfellows, Piterman was recently involved in organising a football match involving cast members of stage shows Fame, Mamma Mia!, Jersey Boys, West Side Story and Mary Poppins. Had she played, Verity Hunt-Ballard, the star of Mary Poppins, might have been tempted to use her parrot umbrella to soar above some packs for some ridiculous screamers on the rented Elwood oval, but the only miracle on the day was a long bomb from Piterman. “I kicked one from 60 metres – it bounced one metre in from the line and rolled through,” he says. “It was one of the heroic moments. I’ll tell my grandkids about it.” He’ll no doubt have many other stories to tell them, too. \

REVIEW\ FASHION

Couture interiors does more than inspire revolutions FASHION on the catwalk – it plays a huge role in influencing the way we decorate our homes. Nobody believes

INSPIRED BY CHLOÉ: Neutral tones create a syrupy warmth that matches the earthy beige hues evident on the catwalk.

INSPIRED BY BURBERRY: A style with beautiful drapery of fabric in pastel hues makes the contemporary take on a classic look.

INSPIRED BY ISABEL MARANT: A shabby-chic finish with an edgy mix of sterling silvers, rustic browns and splashes of orange.

(WIREIMAGE / GETTY IMAGES)

this to be truer than Melbourne-based stylist Bernadette Ferrari – who takes note of what designers unveil from one season to the next, drawing from their sassy, playful and inspirational collections each and every time. A long-time favourite of French magazine editors, Isabel Marant delivered a stunning collection for spring/summer 2010. It was an edgy mix of sterling silvers, rustic browns, splashes of orange and faded denim. She threw in fur sleeveless jackets for a bohemian touch, while the rest of the range was all about fine details including feather earrings, striped shorts, suede fringe boots and all things 1970s. Ferrari has used Marant’s collection to create a lounge room inspired by the French rising star, and we love the shabby-chic end result. “These outfits call for an interior with texture and juxtaposition,” says Ferrari. “Pairing a cumbersome fur jacket over a little shift with a splash of intense orange can be translated into an interior with a textured shaggy rug, a clean line chair and an orange silk cushion for that splash of colour. The mix/match of lights is a fun play on the unexpected.”

If we can borrow from Coco Chanel, the French designer who once said: “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only, fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live,” then we can take this quite literally to include our homes, too. The soft pastel colourings of Burberry Prorsum’s spring/ summer range also provided inspiration for Ferrari, who weaved the neutral tones into her colour scheme when it came to styling a lounge room. “Burberry oozes classical style,” says Ferrari. “This range showcases beautiful drapery of the fabric in soft pastel hues, giving the classic Burberry aesthetic a more contemporary twist. The interior incorporates classical furniture, such as the sofa, with touches of soft pastel green and polished floorboards for a contemporary take on a classic look.” The neutral tones were also prominent in the Chloé range – from oatmeal to milky caramel fabrics that, when combined in a home setting, add a syrupy warmth. Ferrari has created a home interior that matches the earthy beige hues evident on the catwalk. “I believe a home that reflects your personal style will reward you with both physical comfort and visual pleasure,” she says. The recent teaming of textile expert Lee Jofa with luxury brand Oscar de la Renta is a sure sign that home interiors are about to take a walk down sophisticated lane. Who said couture was only destined for the catwalk? It can now find its way into your home, too. Oscar de la Renta is known for his love of fabrics such as silk, linen and ethnic-inspired prints and weaves on silk and cotton blends and, when teamed with Jofa’s vision, they will no doubt make luxurious home-furnishing options. Oscar de la Renta is not the first to enter the home-interior market – there is Dame Vivienne Westwood, who created wallpaper with a difference a few years ago; Ralph Lauren, who had a shot at homewares; Paul Smith, who even opened a furniture shop in Mayfair; and let’s not forget Rosita Missoni’s beautiful mosaics, home sheets and bedding, rugs and table liners. \

TASTINGS\ YOUNG GUNS

Young guns

HODDLES CREEK 1ER CHARDONNAY 2008 (Yarra Valley) $35; 13.2% ★★★★½

Food match: Roasted onion tart

A festival this week honours the young winemakers who are the future of Australian winemaking, writes BEN THOMAS. think wine tastes a little better I ALWAYS  when you know a bit about the person whose efforts went into it. Over the next week,

we’ll be getting to know a bunch of young winemakers whose names are making their way to the core of the Australian wine industry. Eleven bright young things in the world of wine, including seven based in Victoria, will be showcasing their talents at events around Melbourne as part of the Young Guns of Wine Festival. You might be surprised at some of the wines being made by these young stars – you’ve probably had one of them without knowing it. It’s a varied group of vintners: some have been born into wine and are taking over the family business; others turned up for a summer job working as a cellar hand and never left. Regardless of how they got into the business, one thing is certain: the future of Australian winemaking is in safe hands. ROLLO CRITTENDEN \ CRITTENDEN ESTATE Rollo grew up on his family’s vineyard on the Mornington Peninsula and, after a few years as winemaker at the nearby Dromana Estate and some stints in the US and Italy, has returned home. He has started to demonstrate his love of European wines with the Los Hermanos range, which pays tribute to some of the great Spanish wines and regions. FRANCO D’ANNA \ HODDLES CREEK Franco’s family has been in the wine trade for nearly 40 years (running Balwyn’s Boccaccio Cellars). It’s this

inherent knowledge of the wine industry, as well as stints at leading wineries in the Yarra Valley, Burgundy and Oregon, that has helped develop an ability to produce pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot blanc, which are consistently some of the best-value wines in Australia. ANDREW MARKS \ THE WANDERER Andrew grew up on his family’s winery in Gembrook and left to work with iconic wineries Penfolds and Seppelt. He finally returned home to help out with his parents’ Gembrook Hill label and to craft his own wines. He has a well-stamped passport, which surely contributes to The Wanderer name, after winemaking stints in California, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Languedoc and Spain, where he produced his own wine from vineyards next to the famous El Bulli restaurant near Barcelona – El Wanderer. DAN BUCKLE \ MOUNT LANGI GHIRAN Dan grew up on the Mornington Peninsula, where his parents owned a winery in Red Hill, and went on to represent Australia in the sport of fencing. After moving into winemaking, Dan made wine with James Halliday at Coldstream Hills before moving to Yering Station. He found that his fencing training to react to problems, rather than trying to pre-empt what might go wrong, helped enormously in the winery. A handy skill to have when you’re custodian of one of the great Australian shiraz labels. \ senorthomas@gmail.com Follow him on Twitter @senorthomas

This is the top chardonnay from Hoddles Creek, and it's refreshing to see a winery's top label referred to as premier rather than reserve, which sounds elite. The wine has aromas of nectarine, citrus, creamy notes and a hint of spicy oak. It has layers of flavour, with white stone fruits, minerals, a lovely nuttiness and grapefruit acid in support of a creamy mouthfeel. You'd pay five times more for it came from France. THE WANDERER PINOT NOIR 2008 (Yarra Valley) $35; 13% ★★★★

Food match: Grilled quail with pomegranate molasses This displays layered aromas of cherries, spice, and plum, along with funky and earthy notes. It is silky-smooth in the mouth, with clean acid and fine velvet tannins. Flavours of dark cherry, tart raspberries and spice became more complex overnight and rounded out the next day. It needs time to evolve from a top wine to a sensational wine. DE BORTOLI ESTATE SYRAH 2008 (Yarra Valley) $30; 14% ★★★★

Food match: Broad beans with black pudding This is made from grapes from a single Yarra Valley vineyard and the whole grapes were fermented before being crushed, which adds character and complexity. It has dark cherry and plum aromas, along with savoury and spice scents. There are flavours of plum cake, pepper spice and charcuterie. It’s medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins and a slightly bitter, herbal finish, with terrific character. MOUNT LANGI GHIRAN LANGI SHIRAZ 2007 (Grampians) $85; 14.5 % ★★★★★

Food match: Slow-cooked shoulder of lamb

Eighty-five dollars is a lot to pay but this is a top vintage that has a pedigree of ageing well. Aromas of blueberries, dark cherries, blackberries with pepper spice. It straddles that fine line between power and finesse. It's medium-bodied, with impeccable balance.

This is made from grapes planted around Australia, which were originally thought to be albarino from Galicia in northern Spain but turned out to be savagnin.

’ve just met a friend in Ashburton for coffee and am wondering, is this little villa the actual middle of the middle class in Melbourne? Delicate, I know (and not very well put, either). Not sure we’re even allowed to talk about class these days. Murky, murky subject – and such a complex matrix, especially in Melbourne, where the three traditional class tiers – upper, middle and lower – have

(istock photo / thinkstock)

Review\ my view been rendered obsolete. In the old days, middle-class folk owned the big houses and bought all the stuff. But today blue-collar tradies are the rich guys – have you seen those fancy utes? And the working classes isn't all that poor any more, thanks to the Rudd government's handouts and the baby bonuses. Even Wikipedia, the font of all extremely correct knowledge, says the middle class is ambiguously defined – its meaning varying from city to city, country to country – but some things are certain. We know there is and always will be a welfare class, as well as that curious group that politicians call the “working-families” class (i.e. most of us). The good news is a tertiary education can put you up a class (might cost about $100k these days, though). Sadly, a law degree will not necessarily bring you fame and fortune as a chef. Apparently we also have a newly defined, inner-city “intellectual” class, more interested in seeing, reading, experiencing and visiting museums than collecting gadgets that start with the letter “i”. With all due respect, I don’t think that class lives in Ashburton. Seriously, if we actually had to admit to having a middle class in Melbourne, surely it would be Ashburton. It’s not the tidy little fruit shops and old-world bakeries – hell, it’s not even the fact that they’ve got a scrapbooking shop and a shop called Foot Solutions (brilliant idea – do they help your feet to know which way to go when they get lost or which is the left and which is the right – that’s the question currently plaguing my three-year-old and, scarily, the grown-ups who run her crèche). It’s all the ovals. This is the junior-league sporting capital of the world. Netball-mum heaven – a great opportunity to get all the Saturday-morning shopping done while the kids are supervised – and taught the

concept of winning – at the soccer oval. Unlike its north-western suburbs counterpart, Strathmore, the gentrification process is midway – so everything is not so tidy in Ashburton. There’s still lots of mud and skip bins and the streets are half McMansion, half brick veneer, with a reasonable smattering of old council flats and commission houses just ripe for the picking. Lots of opportunities here – this is a suburb ready and open for the big C change. Oh, I know I’m going to get lots of mail about this. I’m sure there are Ashburton mums penning missives right now about their prebaby career trajectory – and I’m just waiting for well-penned complaints from the piano-playing genteel poor, living in their post-divorce bungalows, denying Ashburton’s lack of a cultural life. I know you’re not all soccer mums, I know you’re university educated, I know you don’t always spend Saturday afternoons at Chadstone. But assuming things about people is excellent fun, and we all do it. In fact, my favourite marital argument is about my husband’s assumption that I grew up middle class, and I will tell you now there are many things in life I am happy to deny, but growing up middle class is one thing I will TOTALLY DENY. I know I am not middle class because of one important fact: we didn’t get a colour TV until the old black and white blew up. By that time it only gave us one commercial channel – so I never, ever got to watch The Banana Splits on the ABC. You can assume lots about me and my class by those admissions, and please go ahead. I don’t mind. It’s fun. \

Maggie Beer: "A good food life can be as simple as growing your own rocket, tomatoes and parsley." (Tony Lewis)

i

She has had “one of the luckiest lives imaginable”, cooked the best roast chook that Matt Preston has ever tasted and her favourite phrase is “food life”. There’s a lot we can learn from Maggie Beer, in the kitchen and in life, writes Andrew McUtchen.

t takes something special to darken Maggie Beer’s demeanour. She is, with careful consideration, the sunniest, closest to how she appears on-camera personality I have met. But, quite by accident, I did it. Halfway through our interview I begin an innocuous, well at least I thought it was, anecdote about a school friend who declared in literature class one day: “If I could find a way to not eat ever again and not die, I would do it”. Beer's response is uncharacteristically violent. The anecdote, which seemed to me an interesting counterpoint to her own theory of food, does not fascinate the former co-host of the sadly missed The

Cook and the Chef program on ABC; it appalls her. She appears actually to take personal offence from it, as if through some sort of neglect she has failed my friend personally. It is the one time in the entire 45 minutes that she struggles for words. She settles after some seconds of flapping on “barren”. “Oh dear. Life without food … Goodness me! That would be just … barren, a barren existence. Never ever ever ever could I heal a rift like this with a person! He is missing out on a huge joy in life by just using his intellect. Where are his senses? Of smell, of touch, of feel, of … sharing.” It takes several minutes of discussion about my friend


and his other proclivities – Beer wants to understand this twisted psyche better – before we are back on track and cheerfully listing the top five ingredients of the season. But the message is clear. When Maggie Beer says she eats to live and lives to eat, she means it to the depths of her soul.

A

t the mention of Bryant, Beer laughs melodiously. “Oh Simon, he’s a chef and he’s fantastic. He is so witty. My husband Colin is like that. He is so laid back and cheeky and quick-witted, I respond incredibly well to that. But the other thing is neither of us knew how the other would react at any time.” This spontaneity also came into play when Beer decided that she would “pull the plug” on the high-rating show in 2009. When asked about the day he heard the news Bryant, then head chef at the Adelaide Hilton, admits he was surprised to hear that, at the

T

his is essentially a lose-lose prospect for the celebrity, who cannot seem too brutal in victory and who should not lose, period. Just ask MoVida restaurant’s Frank Camorra, who was defeated by Darwin-based contestant Marion Grasby. Only when Beer arrived and found herself pitted against a would-be giant killer did she realise what was at stake. “I was shaking. My hands were uncontrollably shaking,” she says, reliving the memory. “The emotion and the pressure of having that clock against you! I’ve been cooking all my life, but my god I was out of control for a while. Certainly not crying but I felt enormous performance pressure on the day. In fact they said to me, ‘We haven’t had a guest chef so nervous’, and I said, ‘Well I’m not a chef, I’m a cook! And I haven’t had a restaurant for 20 years and what you see is what you get.' They said, ‘Would you come back again?’ I said, ‘No bloody way’.” It seems only fair though that Beer be under pressure from time to time. Asked what kind of response she gets when she calls to book a restaurant in her own name, she shouts, “fear!” and laughs heartily, before resuming her truer, kindlier self. “No, no, no, it’s not fear, no one’s afraid of this old

"OH DEAR. LIFE WITHOUT FOOD ... GOODNESS ME! THAT WOULD BE JUST ... BARREN, A BARREN EXISTENCE."

KITCHEN MUST HAVES Great bench space – I’m a messy cook, I need room to expand. Good ovens – the ability to get a high temperature and keep it. Being an old girl with a bad back I’m moving to wall ovens from now on. Great stove tops – in the country it’s hard to get really good gas. Lots of windows – you have to be able to look out onto a garden! We’ve got three sets of windows and two french doors.

was tired too. People don’t realise that she works 50, 60 hours a week on her business.” Indeed, the time pressure to shoot a popular weekly series and oversee Beer’s food empire – run by husband of 40 years Colin, and turning over $10 million with 74 employees – took a toll. “I was going to end the show a year earlier actually. My life is so full and my business takes so much of my energy and it was so all-consuming. My producer at the ABC, Margot Phillipson, made the last year a bit easier for me so I’d keep going, but she knew that I wouldn’t keep on. The only way things work is when you’re excited to come to it. And I was tired, I was so so tired.” Tired she may have been in the later episodes of The Cook and the Chef, but did she appear tired on screen? Absolutely not. Maggie Beer, in her TV career, was simply sparkling. Her relentless and genuine full-cream enthusiasm seemed further magnified by Bryant’s spicy wit. How did she maintain such a good mood, every single day? Beer shrieks in her defence, “but it’s exciting!” “It’s exciting! I am excited by life because I’m doing what I love. I have a great deal of energy and I wanted to keep that. I didn’t ever want to lose that. When you’re exhausted you lose it. At 65, which I am now, your body doesn’t bounce back like it used to!” Another descriptor, which could grow tired if you were to faithfully report it every time is: “she laughed”. Among the melody and the lightness of Beer’s voice are latherings of laughter. Her chuckle on this last point hints at a little shy innuendo. It can be left to the reader’s imagination. “It must be very hard for you young ones to understand that,” she adds, with yet more cheekiness. On the topic of one-time rival food show juggernaut MasterChef, upon which she appeared as a guest chef, Beer is garrulous. I wonder, having had a food show, can she offer any insights into MasterChef 's unprecedented success. “I had a bit of a foretaste of it because we used to hear at The Cook and the Chef that our audience wished they knew what we were going to do before we did it, which of course we couldn’t tell them,” Beer says. “I discovered early that people are hungry for knowledge and they actually were going out and cooking. So I wasn’t surprised for too long. Once it started I could see that it was just going to go on.” Living in “the lee side of a big mountain in the Barossa where there is no commercial TV reception”, Beer claims to have only seen the show a couple of times. Which explains why she so enthusiastically agreed to partake in MasterChef ’s popular, but winless, Celebrity Challenge contest. It is a doozy. The celebrity is pitted against a

ith this rather unusual pre-interview small talk out of the way, we begin. “So, over to you,” Beer says with that lovely sparkling cordiality that seems generally lost between generations, an unfortunate anachronism. “I’m prone to ramble, so try and keep me on track”. The word ramble is just perfect in relation to our Senior Australian of the Year. Maggie Beer rambles: in the manner that a large house rambles, in precisely the way that a bush in bloom rambles onto a stone garden path. Beer rambles. In conversation her voice constantly lilts upwards … There is in fact so much expression implicit, that if I were faithful to her intonations, this piece would have the majority of words in italics – “I love music”, is not, for example, said flatly. Her affection was drawn out with a twice as long luuuuuv – and there would be a plainly startling number of exclamation marks. “I always cook to music; it’s really important that what I’m cooking is evoked in the mood of the music. It’s just hugely, hugely important to me and has been all my life, especially growing up. In our household food and music were the centres; they were the most important things to my dad. I came from a musical family. The two just go together! “I’m on such a high right now because I’ve just come from a meeting with Guy Noble about this gig we’re going to do with the (Adelaide) Symphony Orchestra. We had the best time talking food and music.” Food and music matching is not an interpolation of the more famous marriage, food and wine, that Beer can claim as her own. “I think Stefano (de Pieri) did it first in Australia, but don’t worry we’ll do it differently!” It’s something she’ll certainly do with passion if today’s conversation is anything to go by. Beer's dates with the ASO are on August 13 and 14 at the Adelaide Festival Theatre and she clearly cannot wait. But I wonder, symphonies aside, what would she cook to a more pop palette, say, Simon and Garfunkel? “Oh, Simon and Garfunkel …” Beer says, relishing this challenge. “It’s not so much what something would taste like but the mood it puts you in. It would be some kind of languid, slow-food dish, it wouldn’t be full of drama or spice – music is mood evoking and the food is part of that mood. If I’m making brioche it will be something light and airy but full of movement. I honestly think music enhances everything actually.” The dates with ASO will also mark a reunion with Simon Bryant, her sparring partner and “opposite in every way” from The Cook and the Chef, one of the ABC’s most popular cooking shows ever.

MasterChef contestant and they both race to create one of the celebrity’s signature dishes in a limited time.

height of its popularity the show would be wrapped up. “I was disappointed. What can I say? I have no other word to describe the feeling,” Bryant says. When quizzed on Beer’s reasoning, however, Bryant’s understanding is clear and his voice is bereft of any resentment. “Maggie has a skill for timing. She knows when something’s at its absolute peak and she goes out on a high. It was the same with the pheasant farm. She

She’s an amazing thinker. I think because her food’s so normal it is underestimated? I went over to the Barossa to do a story and she invited me to come and have dinner at her place. She cooked this roast chicken and it was basically the best roast chicken I’ve ever had. The thing about Maggie is what she does is simple stuff really, really well. Maggie’s got magic fingers when it comes to food. She can draw flavours out of the same ingredients that other people can’t. I have no idea how she does it. The other thing is that the kind of fantastic bonhomie she exudes is complemented by the fact that she’s a very smart businesswoman. She has so many strings to her bow: you’ll be in London and see her products there. She’s a very smart cookie.

He was passionate about food and quality. We talked about food and he knew that he always wanted the best cut of rump. He used to age his meat and we used to eat brawn at Christmas time and we used to eat every bit of offal there was. So my food life was quite adventurous for the times. Now that kind of thing is quite ordinary but it was adventurous at the time.” Food, though, was not anything of a career choice – it was just something Beer learned “by osmosis” – until necessity demanded a reinvention when Maggie and Colin left Sydney in 1973 to relocate to the Barossa, a place that has utterly absorbed and enthralled her over the years. In late 1978, Colin won a Churchill Fellowship to study game-bird breeding in Europe and America and Maggie “was happy” to follow him even with their small children. This was the impetus for the establishment of the Pheasant Farm Restaurant, which was awarded Australian Gourmet Traveller Restaurant of the Year in 1991, a mere two years before it was closed. Beer cites “exhaustion” as the primary reason for calling it a day, a decision that gave her “a huge sense of relief”. Maggie and Colin first opened the Farm Shop to sell direct to the public. This became the Pheasant Farm Restaurant, which was a showcase for Colin's game birds. “We saw this turkey farm on the border of Scotland where they sold every part of the turkey direct to the customer. They didn’t cook the food, but they sold all the different parts. That gave us the vision for the farm shop and the extension of that was for me to cook because people didn’t know how to cook pheasant and I didn’t think anything of it. I knew what to do, just by instinct. I never thought about it, I just did. There’s been a lot of that in my food life. Not thinking too much!”

Learning by osmosis: "I didn't realise what a privileged food life I'd had growing up." (TONY LEWIS)

MAGGIE ON THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A COOK AND A CHEF? I always think a cook is someone who relates to the food, a chef is someone who uses technique. It goes beyond that, of course. A chef is someone who is in charge of a brigade and is like the captain of a ship. A great chef is also a cook. I’ve said to chefs that they “cook like a woman” and they’ve been terribly offended. But I’ve meant it as a great compliment. It’s when you can cook with heart and soul – but I don’t want to get myself in trouble here. I see it simply as the fact that I’m a cook because I don’t have technique. I am responding to the produce, so I have no barriers, I’m open to what’s in front of me. I think a chef learns differently because they have technique to underpin them.

girl! I learned from a very young age from amazing mentors, not in the food business, that being told constructively and nicely when you could do something better, was a great thing. In my years at the pheasant farm, I did that every day with my team. Instead of breaking them down with criticism, I would try and build them up with ideas of how they could be better.” That said, Beer is first to admit that some dominant traits – an “at times obsessive” approach to quality control – make her a “tough boss”. “I can be very tough at times. If someone in my team is not improving and learning from their experiences, their mistakes, I can be terribly impatient.” Words to Beer are like spices and herbs and these last ones uttered, a little more quietly than the others, have a bitter edge. Each phrase alights differently from her tongue and would seem to have a different taste on her palette, which, in a rare moment of hubris, she admits to me, is “exceptionally good”. This is largely due, she says, to her parents. “I didn’t realise what a privileged food life I’d had growing up,” she says. “Ours was a household where food was really, really important. My dad was a passionate cook though he didn’t do much cooking.

hat is this concept of “living a good food life”? At first glance it’s just another marketing phrase you might expect to see on Australian celebrity chef Curtis Stone’s tightly muscled T-shirt. But it is in fact much more important and far-reaching than that. And having heard the passion in Beer’s voice, it seems that this humble couplet is her philosophical, even spiritual, nucleus. I have discussed food with obsessive chefs, cravat-couched critics and voracious foodies, but none has conveyed quite how central food – the way we grow it, cook it, share it – is to the everyday business of living. “A good food life can be as simple as growing your own rocket and tomatoes and parsley, and buying some local oil and making your own bread, or getting some good bread from a baker who makes it with real ingredients. Or having chooks in your backyard. There’s nothing elitist, expensive or difficult about it,” Beer says. “The concept to me is how it’s far more than the sum of the parts. If you have a good food life you firstly have an appreciation of the land and the seasons. You therefore care about how the land is sustained because you want to know where your food comes from and how it’s been grown. You have a joy in preparing food, which is really an act of love, and you share the table with family and friends. What that gives is a sense of community and belonging and laughter and argument and frenetic activity and calm.” The ring of the phrase brings to mind our manifold “other” lives. Sex life, love life, family life. If one were to break life into a pie chart what space would each “life” take? Beer does the maths. “Well, a life without a sex life, a love life, a music life, a food life … it would be a life unfulfilled. In a pie chart who could possibly live without love, sex and food? It’s actually a very difficult question for me to answer because they’re all so intertwined, they really are. Food is so very sensual, sensuality is sexual. They’re both about blood of many different kinds. And then there’s family and the sharing I talk about that’s so important. And being connected. Being connected is so important ... like strings on the same violin.” \

20s

Liquids are more fun. Try ERE PEREZ NATURAL BEETROOT CHEEK AND LIP TINT ($29.95). This Australian company is producing some of the most amazing organic make-up.

30s

SMASHBOX COSMETICS O-GLOW ($37.95) is perfect. It is suitable for any skin tone and type … yes, even great for dark skin. A clear liquid that miraculously changes to suit your colouring when applied … you’ve got to love that.

GOTTA LOVE IT

WATCHING

an episode of Dynasty recently brought back the horrors of wearing blush in the 1980s. Racing stripes on your cheeks are not a good look! Much as I like the character Alexis Carrington, living by her dress code is not something I recommend. Blushers do not get the respect they deserve for sculpting the face and adding dimension to it. Applying blusher is easy to master: There are three types of blush formulations, and they’re self-explanatory – powder, cream and liquid. When applying blush, always keep in mind less is certainly more. To apply powder blush, always use a large brush. Gently place the brush on the powder to ensure you don’t overload it with blusher. Apply the colour on your cheekbones in upward sweeping strokes – blend well and take the colour all the way to your hairline.

SIMPLY DIVINE

40s

Powder with a hint of shimmer or cream blush will do the trick. NARS ORGASM (PEACHY PINK) POWDER BLUSH ($62) or MULTIPLE ($89) are simply divine.

To apply cream blush, make sure you have not set your foundation with powder, as cream and powder do not mix. Rest your ring finger on the cream blush. It has the least control of all your fingers, so this way you cannot take more colour than you need. Place the finger on your cheekbone and sweep the colour all the way to the hairline.

Flushed To apply liquid blush, do not set your foundation with powder. Taking the tiniest dollop of colour, place three fingers close to the bridge of your nose. Where your third finger furthest away from your nose rests is the place you start adding colour, blending it towards your hairline. \ askdhav@gmail.com

A soft powder is always best to give skin just a hint of colour. BOBBI BROWN ($58) is the consummate choice. For pale skin tone: Blushed; medium: Rose; dark: Spice/Deep Red.

all lived through the lives and loves of the WE’VE WE’VE Spice Girls – their forever-changing hair, clothes and, believe it or not, music styles. Light and fluff y, (FILMMAGIC / WIREIMAGE / GETTY IMAGES)

these five women capture a “feel good” emotion. Let’s look at the hair. Purely their hair. How, over the course of 15 years, have each of them evolved and altered their hair? One thing is for sure – they are still fashion icons, and the world (well, 14 to 18-year-olds), still borrow their looks and styling. But how were they in the beginning? Let’s start with Ginger and end with my favourite Spice Girl, Victoria. \

GINGER S PICE Well, well, Geri Halliwell, we have been through the entire colour palette. First she was red, and then, after leaving the Spice Girls, Geri did something drastic and went blonde, then red again, and then back to blonde. Geri, you are a hairdresser’s dream, you are truly experimental, and as your weight has been on a constant roller-coaster, so has your hair colour. My favourite image is when Geri has long hair, with cascading waves, appealing to a carefree image.

Mel B came onto the stage like a lion. She was golden and brown and her hair had chunky highlights and was always out of control – a true wild woman. Over the years, her appearance has softened, and a more natural self has evolved. Long, clean-lined and uncomplicated is her look, which she has not changed since the beginning of the millennium. There has been no experiment in her hair. She looks normal, perhaps boring. I rate her 5/10.

S POR T Y S PICE Mel C, our long brunette, has had very little change. Yes, we have lightened it by a few shades, deepened and thickened it, however, not a great deal of excitement has occurred since her stage career, where she characteristically wore a ponytail. We would love for Mel to possibly go red and challenge her appearance.

We always knew Emma Bunton would grow up. As she matured, she became a very stylish woman exuding beautiful, tapered looks. Her hair is often in a solid fringe; one that is long-layered. The hair colour has not changed dramatically. Neutral to cool shades, with soft highlights showing a consistent look, which obviously works with her skin and eye colour. We give her 8/10 and would have loved to have seen her dark at one stage just to wow her audience and herself.

Over the years, Victoria Beckham has invested a lot of time and money fine-tuning her appearance. She has come a long way from the lengthy, streaky, extensions she had in the beginning. From a graduated bob to a cutting-edge blonde, Victoria’s hair is forever changing. Today, Victoria has grown her hair to almost shoulder length and it is soft and whimsical. She looks fabulous. She rates 10/10 for her hair is always in perfect unison with her fashion attire.

MUSiC Hello SATelliTeS \ Hello SATelliTeS (Two BrigHT lAkeS)

Tv oFFSPriNg \ CHANNel TeN SUNDAy, AUgUST 13, 8.30PM

FilM SPliCe \ rATeD MA, oPeNS AUgUST 12 One thing’s for certain: you won’t be seeing another film quite like this for some time. A warped, psychological thriller from the director of creepy 1997 sci-fi flick Cube, Splice is an appropriately strange beast. Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley are an unfeasibly cool pair of geneticists breaking new ground in “splicing” species to form strange new hybrids. Why, you ask? Well, because it seems to be great fun and because, apparently, there are also some potential medical benefits. But, of course, the pair’s glee at mastering the powers of creation becomes too much for them and they attempt to create the first human-animal hybrid, which can’t possibly end well. This hybrid is Dren (Delphine Chanéac), a young girl-thing whose puréed genetics mean she is both more and less than human, incapable of speech but amphibious and gifted with retractable wings and a nasty sting in her tail. She becomes a rapidly-ageing surrogate daughter to our two geneticists, but her alien nature makes for a complicated, confronting take on parenthood. It’s a bizarre, intriguing concept but the film’s DNA is no less stable than any of its unholy creatures. The story really belongs to the schlockhorror comics of the ’50s and ’60s, while the production is part arthouse, part Hollywood thriller. That said, Vincenzo Natali’s slick direction does a good job at papering over the seams, resulting in a well-acted film that is by turns compelling, uncomfortable and risible. There are certainly laughs to be had – a gory face-off between two giant, mutant tongues is both bloody and hilarious – and a good dose of thrills, but ultimately it’s hard to shake the feeling that this is all just a little bit silly.

The offspring on show in this new Melbourne series are reassuringly human, either shaking their tiny pink fists in the hospital nursery or chafing against their siblings over lattes in Fitzroy. Centre-stage is obstetrician Nina Proudman (Asher Keddie), too nice for her own good, mid-30s and the axle on which her dysfunctional family squeakily turns. Ready to cause trouble are her bitchy sister Billie (Kat Stewart), hapless younger brother Jimmy (Richard Davies), over-achieving mother Geraldine (Linda Cropper) and womanising but loveable dad Darcy (John Waters). So far, so familiar. There’s more than a dash of Bridget Jones’s Diary and Cold Feet to the production, relying on fantasy sequences, on-screen squiggles and (somewhat mundane) monologues to drive both comedy and action, but these flourishes do little to freshen up a creaking format. It’s perfectly nice drama and will probably do well for Ten, but it’s a reminder that Australian telly drama – with a few notable exceptions – too often veers toward safety at the cost of adventure. Where are our Six Feet Unders, our Tremes? While there are gestures here to edginess, niceness reigns at the cost of a recognisable reality. Flashes of Fitzroy aside, this (almost) uniformly white and upper-middle-class Melbourne looks less and less like the city most of us know and love.

The latest project from Melbourne singer-songwriter Eva Popov has a delicate, slight beauty easy to miss on first pass. Fragile melodies float above intricately assembled instrumentation as pianos circle hypnotically and glockenspiels chime. First single Building a Wall is a pop gem, while Stars Are You Sirens builds and throbs with a distressing urgency, but it’s often the quietest moments here that are the most affecting. Popov’s porcelain vocals have a knack for making the heart shatter, haunting the bare but beautiful bones of tracks such as If I Had a Kite and closer Pelican. At a glance, the record has a stark quality, its songs so simply constructed and so gentle in their approach that their very human warmth sometimes remains politely out of sight. Still, even if Hello Satellites does go over your head, chances are it’ll be circling back around in no time at all.

PlAy SUPerHeroeS \ THe ArTS CeNTre This new play from Adelaide theatre company Stone/ Castro sees a cast of six characters tackle the world’s ills from the dubious comfort of a rest home. There’s a Lycra-clad and superhero-obsessed Palestinian, freshly awoken from a 20-year coma; a piano-playing evangelical Christian; a traumatised Iraq War veteran and a pregnant murderer with a Nietzsche fixation. All are mired in different ideologies and all have their own idea as to where

humanity’s salvation lies – with God, man or Superman. Weighty stuff, sure, but laced with enough dark humour to be as entertaining as it is provocative. Having been well-received at the Adelaide Arts Festival, Superheroes is touching down in Melbourne for a limited season before jetting off to tour Portugal. \

Review\ focus Young people are “coming out” at an earlier age. But are Melbourne’s high schools ready for a growing number of openly gay and same-sex-attracted students? GeorGia Wilkins spends some time with Melbourne High’s soFa group to find out.

A

lmost a year ago, in a 100-year-old building in South Yarra known as the “castle on the hill”, Melbourne High School students “Izzi” and Jordan stood up in assembly and announced to their fellow students that they had formed a group offering a safe place for same-sex attracted students, and their friends, to talk about their lives.* As gay students, they said, they wanted to form a group that would openly address a raft of unanswered questions and offer support to those who were confused about who they were. The occasion, though daunting at the time, has gone down in the school’s long history. It was a “pretty awesome” assembly, say the boys. “When Jordan and Izzi stood up, they were so honest about who they were that there was no avenue for rumours or anything,” says Julian, a vocal member of the now 15-strong group. The group that eventuated was SOFA, an acronym for Same-sex-attracted, Other, Friends of Alliance. They meet after school once a week to talk and share stories. Sometimes they arrange guest speakers; sometimes the arranged topic drifts. But all conversations maintain a comfortable level of optimism common in people who are used to challenging the norm. “It’s a good session to vent,” says Jordan. “I think the attitude of some of the boys now, including myself, has transformed from feeling isolated and alone … to seeing faces in the corridor and thinking we share something special. It’s more like a family.” Family is definitely one way of putting it. On the day that we meet, the SOFA students are piled into welfare officer Jennifer Mill’s room. Known as Jenny to the students, Mill is one of the teachers instrumental, the Poster boy: group says, in getting SOFA set up. Izzi holds up For a long time, Mill had tried to organise what she a Minus18 calls an “underground network” of boys who had come poster. to her feeling confused about their sexuality. With a (Shannon background in nursing, she immediately recognised MorrIS) the need for students to talk openly about how they feel with others. “It’s good we can finally bring it out into the open,” she says, even if there are “always going to be concerns” about peoples’ responses. “Emotional and mental well-being are important for academic well-being.” Today the students discuss how important it is to be there for each other when someone comes out – especially if their family isn’t supportive. But there’s a lot of joking as well. A relaxed relationship with the teachers means that there’s no censorship and the students are encouraged to speak their mind – obscenities notwithstanding. They’re impressed with the group’s recent media coverage but say they don’t want to be written off as a stereotype. “It would be more important to show the achievements we’ve made, rather than putting us in the light of a gossip group,” Jordan says. Apart from offering each other support, the group is leading the charge for greater recognition of same-sex-attracted students in Melbourne and indeed Australia. Princes Hill and Northcote High School are also on the short list of schools embracing sexual diversity. But despite foot-dragging by some schools, SOFA in many ways reflects a positive shift in attitude towards *Last names have homosexuality in schools – one that has prompted a been left out at the growing number of young people to come out during school’s request.

high school rather than leave it until later in life. According to a 2005 La Trobe University report on the health and wellbeing of same-sex-attracted young people in Australia, the number of young people choosing to disclose their sexuality to someone increased from 82 per cent in 1998 to 95 per cent in 2004. In terms of the school environment, more young people in 2004 were disclosing to teachers and school welfare counsellors than previously, and more support was given, though the numbers were still small. Friends remained the most popular confidantes to whom young people to disclose their sexuality, followed by mothers. “At my old school I knew people who were in the closet because it was unacceptable, and I know now that that’s changing, that it’s becoming more acceptable,” says Julian. “I think (coming out at a younger age) is a growing trend. This group is an example of that trend,

Off the straight and narrow and it’s also furthering that trend.” Walking through the hallowed corridors of the heritage-listed school – built in 1905 and used during World War II as a military base – it’s hard to imagine students openly discussing homosexuality 10 years ago, much less during the school’s humble beginnings. It is understandable, therefore, that there has been a flurry of excitement over SOFA, which has raised the bar for Melbourne’s religious and private schools long exempt from the state’s anti-discrimination laws.

A

lthough the group’s popularity has grown, SOFA has had to traverse some rocky terrain. In its early days, teachers advised Izzi and Jordan not to announce where the meetings were taking place – instead, people who wanted to come on board had to make contact directly with the two students. This was a precaution against any negative reaction the group might provoke. “We didn’t want to make them a target,” says Mill. These days there is still some disquiet among other students and parents – but mainly of an indirect and passive nature. Last month, several anti-homophobia posters the group had put around at the school, which asked, “When did you decide to be straight?”, were pulled down. “A lot of people didn’t get (the posters),” says Kieran, another group member. “One of the straight boys said that it was offensive. What did he call it? Oh yeah, heterophobia,” Jordan says, prompting laughter. Some of the SOFA students also admit to being called names by other students, but this, they say, is “mainly just from the sporting teams”. Mill says that because Melbourne High is a state

school, its administration couldn’t legitimately reject students’ calls to set up SOFA. The Equal Opportunity Act makes it unlawful to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation. But as the SOFA group points out, the school’s support went above and beyond this. Kieran says: “It wasn’t like they just stood behind it; they actively encouraged it. We can do controversial things, and things that people haven’t done before.” The media’s more frequent depictions of being homosexual has been an important step in the inclusion of same-sex students in schools, says Jordan. “The media’s portrayal of being homosexual, or whatever you are, has improved so much and there’s so much more coverage that it’s becoming a common, everyday thing.” Micah Scott, 21, who helps run Minus18, a same-sex network for under-18s, agrees that the media’s more open-ended definition of sexuality has helped break down old stereotypes. “There have been a lot of reversals – gay is not mainstream, but it’s definitely more acceptable to experiment with your sexuality,” he says. “Sexual ambiguity is common now, and I think that’s healthy.” Scott says it’s often this ambiguity that throws parents who might otherwise be accepting of their child if they were simply “gay”. “There’s a lot of pressure from the older generation to decide what you are – you can’t be bisexual because that’s ‘being greedy’, you’ve got to be ‘one or the other’,” he says. The other thing that throws parents, Scott says, is age. As the SOFA group tells me, young people who decide to be open about their sexuality at 14 – or even 13 – often have to deal with another problem: being able to convince their parents that how they feel is real.


Reactions to the SOFA group have been a mix of support, conern and confusion - but nothing extreme, says Jenny Mill. Some parents said the group was inappropriate for high-school-age students – one suggesting that their son was being negatively “influenced”. Another said explicitly that their son wasn’t allowed to make “those sorts of decisions” until he was 21. “There’s this idea that this group is ‘creating’ gay kids, like, ‘Oh, you were straight before and now you’re gay’,” says Julian. “It’s a generational thing. I would imagine that if SOFA or something like that had existed when our parents were back in high school, they wouldn’t be thinking these things.”

T

“There’s a loT of pressure from The older generaTion To decide whaT you are – you can’T be bisexual because ThaT’s ‘being greedy’, you’ve goT To be ‘one or The oTher’.” Kieran, who is in year 9 at Melbourne High and one of the youngest in the SOFA group, says: “My parents basically said, ‘You’re a pubescent teenager and it’s the hormones talking’. It was kind of condescending. They meant well, but the way they put it was just really offensive.” Scott says one of the most common assumptions parents make when their son or daughter comes to Minus18 events is that they’ve joined a “gay group”. “We’ve had a lot of young people come out to their parents as bi, and their parents are like, ‘Don’t be ridiculous, you’re one or the other’!” Scott says. “That’s a perception the older generation has that the younger

generation just doesn’t.” Scott says that other responses from parents include the “it’s just a phase” response and the “you’re too young to know” response – the latter becoming more and more popular as kids come out earlier. “There are parents who say ‘don’t tell me yet,’ or, ‘experiment a bit more and get back to me’,” he says. One parent even told her daughter, who came out as bisexual, that she was only doing it for attention. “(The daughter) was like, um, OK then! It’s not something young people want to sit their parents down and tell them about any more, because they have friends they can talk to.”

Sofa, so good: (From left) Izzi, Julian, James, Anthony and Jordan.

he group is only too aware of the importance of SOFA in the broader scheme of gay rights. Another member of the group, Harrison, talks about the importance of figures such as Harvey Milk (the first openly gay man to be elected to public office in America) and gay activism in universities in America in the 1970s to the group’s pursuit of equality in schools. But he laments that there is still a long way to go to remove discrimination towards same-sex students – especially in Australia and especially in some of Melbourne’s oldest and more conservative high schools. But the group remains optimistic. “This movement had to start at one point or the other. Whether it was five years, 10 years from now ... ” says Julian. “It’s turning into a bit of a wave. What I am hoping for with SOFA is to start a bunch of groups that will come together and prevent stuff like suicide.” According to the La Trobe report, the risk of suicide remains high among same-sex-attracted young people, and despite growing support for sexual diversity, schools remain the “most dangerous place” for same-sex-attracted people, with 74 per cent of reported abuses occurring on school grounds. The effects of homophobic abuse, such as depression and anxiety, are also more life-threatening to someone who has not told anyone about their sexuality than to someone who has, the report states. SOFA students therefore see open discussion at an educational level as crucial in levelling the playing field. “That’s been one of the really direct things, helping guys understand if they’re unsure, understand where they’re heading,” says Julian. “If someone’s in trouble, there is very direct support.” Scott says most of the resistance towards embracing same-sex support groups at schools has come from religious schools. A school in Geelong that wanted to celebrate International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO) refused to put up posters given to them by Minus18 because they “encouraged” homosexuality rather than deterring homophobia. “They were scared that there would be a backlash – and there was. Parents pulled their kids out of the school for the day, and made complaints,” Scott says. But all this is changing, he says. “I think as queer culture becomes more accepted, people are going to come out more, people are going to experiment more and realise their feelings a lot earlier,” he says. And that’s got to be a good thing. “You don’t want to be 40 years old with a wife and kids and realise you’re gay, because you’re hurting yourself and everyone else.” So are Melbourne’s schools ready for an increase in openly gay and same-sex-attracted students? “There is an existing want and need for these groups,” says Julian. “It’s really just a spark that we need.” \

Review\ cheqUeS & BaLanceS

Australian the gReat dream of owning your own home has often led to

people putting every spare cent into the mortgage. This is leading to many people retiring asset-rich but cash-poor. They own their own home but are struggling to live day-to-day as they have little or no income-producing assets to provide the cash to do so. This is especially true of retirees whose working life predated the superannuation guarantee or who took part in it for a relatively short time. So while spending their working lives paying off their Australian dream to secure their future, many people are finding that future is not providing them the security of their dreams. Retirees are being forced to sell off their children’s inheritance or go back into debt just to meet living costs. So there has been a rise in the sale of reverse-mortgage products. A reverse mortgage basically allows you to borrow cash against the value of your home. To be eligible for one you need to own your own home and generally be over the age of 60. Depending on your age, you can borrow 15 per cent - 40 per cent. The older you are the more you can borrow. You usually do not need to make regular repayments as you would with a conventional home loan. Instead, you pay back the value of the loan once you sell the home, move into care, or you die. Each year the fees and interest are added to the original loan and interest compounds year after year. So, unlike a conventional loan that reduces over time, with a reverse mortgage the debt grows. A reverse mortgage allows you to access cash either in a lump sum or as a continuous income stream or a combination of both depending on your needs. You don’t need to have an income to qualify for a reverse mortgage and the best advantage is that you can remain in your own home and retain ownership. But there are downsides to consider. Interest rates on reverse mortgage are often higher than on conventional home loans. Couple this with the fact that the interest is compounding (interest is charged on the interest) over the term of the loan, and the cost of the loan is not only unknown but can be very high. There is even the risk that the compounding interest effect could lead to the loan being greater than the value of the home. This would leave you in a negative equity position. If considering a reverse mortgage, ensure it contains a no negative equity guarantee clause that protects you from having to pay any shortfall.

Some products also offer the option to protect a fixed percentage of the value of your home, which cannot be used to repay the loan. Remaining in your own home might seem like a great idea while you are still fit and healthy, but you may not always be that way. As you age, you may find the upkeep of your home onerous. Reverse mortgage agreements often require the owner to maintain the property to a certain standard. If you are unable to do this you may find you lose your no-equity guarantee or the lender may have the right to evict you. A reverse mortgage may also affect your eligibility for a pension if you take the loan as a lump sum. While your principal family home is excluded from the pension asset test, if you use the loan funds to invest in shares or buy a car, these assets may be included in the pension asset test, and this may also reduce the pension you are eligible to receive. As you have no idea how long you are going to live, there is no way of knowing how big the loan will eventually be. You may find that it has increased so much that there is not enough equity left in your house to fund aged care or leave your children an inheritance.

some reverse theRe aRe mortgages that allow you to borrow for a fixed term,

but you then run the risk that the term expires before you die or are ready to move into care and you have to sell the house anyway to repay the loan. If you are the sole owner of the home, the loan will only be in your name. If you live with a spouse or partner, they may be evicted from the home if you die or move into care, so the house can be sold to repay the loan. So if you are considering a reverse mortgage, establish how much cash you need, be conservative about the value of your home and its potential growth, establish how long you think you will live for, whether or not you need aged care and if you want to leave an inheritance for your kids. Most importantly, get some sound legal advice to ensure you understand exactly what you are getting into. Alternatively, you can always sell your home, move somewhere smaller and enjoy the fruits of your hard-earned cash while you still can. After all, you won’t be around to enjoy the inheritance you leave behind! \

ictorian of the Year Stephanie Alexander was among the winners at the 2010 Premier’s Design Awards – proving that good design can start anywhere, even around the kitchen table. The Premier’s Design Awards are part of the Victorian Government’s $15 million Design Victoria strategy, which recognises and promotes good design. Innovation Minister Gavin Jennings presented the awards, on behalf of Premier John Brumby, in an event at Pixel – Australia ’s first carbon-neutral commercial building – as part of the State of Design Festival . “The Brumby Labor Government is proud to support the Premier’s Design Awards and the State of Design festival because innovative ideas are important to Victoria ’s economic and social future,” Jennings said. “This year’s winners are shining examples of the benefits that clever thinking and good design can bring to the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of Victorians. “Importantly, innovative thinking can create job opportunities for Victorian families.” The biennial awards recognise and reward excellence in the application of design. Recipients of the award are leaders in the effective and strategic use of design. Jennings announced that the 2010 Premier’s Recognition Award winner was Whizkid Games, produced for the National eTherapy Centre by the Swinburne University of Technology faculty of design, which designed interactive computer games to help autistic children learn life skills.

The brief was a house for Corbett Lyon and his family of four, as well as a museum to house a large collection of contemporary artworks that could be viewed by the public. This project was highly innovative in exploring the redefinition of the domestic to embrace the museum/art gallery type.

The highlights of the State of Design program included Melbourne Open House, which afforded the opportunity to see projects and buildings that hold a fascination, but remain enigmas. These are buildings such as the Society, developed by Hamton, on Bray Street, South Yarra, the Jackson Clements Burrows Architects’ Hue Apartments building on Lord Street, Richmond, the recently opened Pixel Building, Victoria’s first carbon-neutral building, the substations and the ANZ building at Docklands, which features the elegant wind turbines on the roof. Other festival favourites were the BMW Edge talks, in particular the future of high residential housing options for Melbourne, and Chris Bangle, ex-BMW design director and GINA principle, who talked on the future of personal emotional mobility. “We are in the age of innovation and no idea is too crazy,” he said. “We are being asked to approach our unprecedented global challenges of climate change and peak oil with completely fresh thinking.” Bangle says we are not going to give up our personal mobility but do we have to think outside the square. Other standouts were the Victorian Eco Innovation Laboratory (VEIL), which has been involved in an ongoing process of consultation and workshops with Hume City Council, along with design students and academics. The VEIL exhibition explored and visualised the outcomes from this design research and visioning for Broadmeadows, which showcased a series of design projects from Melbourne University, RMIT, Monash University and Swinburne University in fields of architecture, landscape design, industrial design, communication design and service design. These ideas will be further developed and carried forward by Hume City Council in new and emerging strategic planning. VEIL’s Diane Moy and Dr Chris Walsh work with universities’ design departments to revise options for a sustainable future as well as developing ‘‘adaptation’’ demonstration projects. The work of Hassell Architecture’s Matthew McKay and Martin Rowland on the Seville Water Play master plan, was a a job that gave new purpose to a decommissioned municipal pool. At a very immediate level, Ian Porter offered an encouraging picture of the broad interest and commitment by ordinary people to take on the

environmental challenges in their domestic lives. Figures show that there is an unprecedented uptake of photovoltaic panels used by households since May this year. However, Porter says that insulation still remains the single most effective thing you can do for your home to improve its environmental performance. The regional focus, with talks, the open house project and interesting demonstrations in regional areas such as Bendigo, Ballarat and Geelong was great to see and should be increased next time around, given that there is such a growing interest in the sea change/ tree change scenario. Regional Victoria is looking good for a lot of people and with the flexibility of trains, good roads and high-speed internet, having a city address is becoming less critical for many. One exhibit that is still up and running is the terrific ARKit prefabricated, architect-designed dwelling sitting in the forecourt of ACCA and the Malthouse Theatre. There is great interest in the architectural community around models of housing that deliver on affordability and sustainability. Architect Craig Chatman’s model, which he has been developing over several years, is a little gem: a 6.1-star-rated dwelling with double-glazing, cedar exterior panels and marine ply interior cladding. Chatman says it performs so well you don’t even need heating. The house would make a perfect temporary home – that comes on the back of a truck while your house is being renovated – and could then be transported to your holiday-house site. This year's far-reaching and informative State of Design program was a treat. \

REVIEW\ GARDENING

NOT SO SCARY Sandi Kogtevs talks to ROBYN DOREIAN about her love of making scarecrows.

A

t the top of the driveway leading to Sandi Kogtevs’ house is a seated lady. She nurses a chook and has two more at her feet, as well as several ducks. This lady, however, is not a person, rather a cloth scarecrow. At present, there are five scarecrows positioned around the painter/knitter/craft enthusiast’s 14-hectare Strathewen property. Their job is to deter lyrebirds from eating her blueberries and vegetables, to keep currawongs away from her orchard in fruit season and to prevent deer from munching the agapanthus. Sandi made her first scarecrow 35 years ago when her family lived in Heidelberg. Initially she constructed just one for their vegie patch, but then her three children insisted he needed a wife and, a year later, a child. “There were probably more scarecrows than vegie patch,” she says. Typically, a scarecrow takes her an evening to make. The basic materials are two pairs of pantyhose, which are then stuffed with supermarket bags filled with screwed-up newspaper (the plastic keeps the newspaper dry). One filled-out pair of tights forms the lower body, the other, the torso and arms. Calico is cut to form the head, and fibre-fill from old cushions or a pillow is used to pad out a soft face. Hair is fashioned from knitting wool or a wig is attached, and then a face drawn on with permanent marker. Once the three body parts are sewn together, the figure is dressed in op-shop clothes. Come the new year, each scarecrow is given a makeover, as the sun has faded their clothes. Sandi also finds it necessary to move them around, otherwise the birds get used to their presence. “Don’t ask me if they work, as the one in the orchard has a kookaburra sitting on its head and has a rabbit burrow between its feet, so I don’t think they are effective all the time,” she says, laughing. “But they guard the house while you are gone, and there is someone sitting there when you come home. Some are just in the yard for company.”

Taking over: “There are probably more scarecrows than vegie patch,” says Sandi Kogtevs. (ROBYN DOREIAN / SANDI KOGTEVS)

Visitors are used to her creative quirks and love of nature and don’t baulk at the unusual characters that grace her sloping acreage. “From someone who paints chooks all over her kitchen cupboards, they are not surprised by anything.” As well as protecting her crops, Sandi crafts them for friends. In 2002 she helped Kinglake Kindergarten make a figure for its vegie garden. Sadly, the building was later burgled and set alight. The children were distressed, as not only had they lost their play school but also their scarecrow. On Black Saturday, five were incinerated. A licensed wildlife carer, Sandi also lost four Shetland ponies, at least 30 kangaroos, all the possums and gliders that lived in the valley and much birdlife. She and her husband survived by sheltering in the wine cellar the previous owners had dug into the mountain. Since buying the property in 1995, and aware of the fire risk, they added a corridor and installed a fireproof door. Along with the valuables placed inside by Sandi each summer, the couple remained in the bunker’s cool darkness for 30 minutes. When they emerged, the next 11 hours were spent extinguishing spot fires around the house. As their water supply had been cut off and their tanks melted, it was a Kmart kiddies’ pool bought for sitting in during the 40-degree weather that provided house-saving water. “I thought we would survive the fire, I didn’t think we would die. Other people had a lot more drama than me,” she says. After the fires, Sandi didn’t leave their property for six weeks. Instead, she bandaged burnt kangaroo feet with torn-up sheets and applied cream provided by Kinglake’s veterinary practice. She also tended to two

blinded lyrebirds. As there were no worms for them to eat, she undertook the grisly task of extracting maggots from the bodies of dead deer to restore the lyrebirds to health. “When their eyes came good, I released them, and then they came back and attacked my garden to thank me!” She also set about bedding 600 plants to provide food for the honeyeaters. Almost 18 months later, the birds have returned. As we speak, a blue wren that she has been feeding since the fires taps against the kitchen windowpane, reminding her it is hungry — she breaks our conversation to place some grated cheese on the ledge. Slowly resuming her rescue work, Sandi has just taken in three injured kangaroos and a wallaby. During her 20 years nurturing wildlife, Sandi has worn out three washing machines laundering joey pouches made from cardigans lined with sheepskin. For a time when she first moved to Strathewen, the only furniture in her dining room were the cots occupied by baby wallabies and wombats. Once nursed back to health, the animals are released. But they know and trust Sandi and return often. “The wombats I raised still come back at night with their babies. They rub their behinds on the back door to let me know they are there. Some come when they have bush ticks, and they’ll scratch and let me know where the tick is so I can take it off.” Curiously, on Black Saturday, one scarecrow managed to survive. The “forest elf” that sat at the base of her driveway and nursed a sign urging drivers to slow down to protect crossing wombats dodged the flames that set the hills aglow. But, ironically, when her husband was later clearing debris, it was accidently “murdered” by the bucket attached to his tractor. Now that her vegie gardens are once again thriving, Sandi has several new scarecrows planned. She’s not yet sure of their form, but for Sandi the making of scarecrows is about more than simply frightening birds. “When you see a scarecrow sticking up from someone’s vegie garden it looks like someone cares. To me, it’s just not a vegie garden without one.” \ robyndoreian@gmail.com

A root less travelled SIEW-CHING GOH unearths an often-overlooked tuber.

T

(DALEYS NURSERY, NSW / BRAND X PICTURES / ISTOCKPHOTO / THINKSTOCK)

he well-travelled potato has a compatriot – yacon – that stayed home for a long time but is now making headway in kitchen gardens and markets in many parts of the world. Both are native to the Andes in South America. Both are prolific tuber crops. However, while the potato is king (being the world’s fourth most-important food crop after rice, wheat and maize) yacon is a foot soldier. Ironically, this foot soldier is gaining recognition not because it is nutritious and packed with calories like the potato, but for an opposite reason. Yacon (Smallanthus sonchifolius, formerly called Polymnia sonchifolia) is low in calories and not very nutritious. Yacon has edible roots that are high on sweet-tasting inulin, a blend of fructose polymers, which the human body cannot break down. Unlike simple sugars such as glucose and sucrose that are easily absorbed, inulin passes through our digestive tract intact until it reaches the colon where, according to nutritionists, it helps maintain a healthy gut. In short, it has potential as a sweetener with no calories and the added bonus of possibly being prebiotic. I was not aware of yacon’s special traits when I harvested my yacon plants three years ago; I was only trying to bring biodiversity into the backyard. The three yacon plants yielded about four buckets of tuberous roots that were sweet, crisp and juicy. Roots that were damaged in the lifting tasted slightly resinous but were still good when their skins were pared back. The texture of the raw root is close to that of Jerusalem artichoke, which, like the yacon, is a member of the sunflower family. The plants I harvested were only about a metre tall as they were not high on our priority list under Melbourne’s 3a watering restrictions in place at the time. Nevertheless they had, in the seven or so months

of growth, put out stout shoots and small, daisy-like flowers. Under better conditions this plant can be about twice as tall, but don’t feed it too well as it might then produce more leaves and fewer edible roots. Yacon is a perennial, so it will keep growing and spreading when left to its own devices. Under kitchen-garden conditions, it would be replanted every seven or eight months when the tuberous roots are lifted for consumption. At the base of the plant, just below the surface of the soil, yacon produces a compact crown of pinkish/ red rhizomes (underground stems) that can be used to plant next season’s crop. Below this crown is a mass of brown tuberous roots that resemble sweet potato; this is the edible part of the plant. The roots can be harvested when the flowers wither and the leaves die back. Kurt Kuffer, who has been growing yacon for 10 years at his nursery in Kerang, says he often waits for frost to cut the plant back before he harvests. “It will grow well just about anywhere,” says Kuffer, who owns the

mail-order nursery Cornucopia Seeds & Plants. “We put it in reasonably fertile ground then forget about it. It is a very versatile vegetable.” Yacon is considered a fruit by its indigenous growers in the Andean regions, hence its common Peruvian name, ground apple. The leaves are used as a decoction, too, though I am not game to try. I am going back to the roots, though, for a second shot at biodiversity since my yacon’s demise. \

The yacon plant has a cluster of reddish rhizomes that are used for replanting after the main harvest.

Yacon can be used in dishes that call for jicama (above), the storage root of the yam-bean. Jicama (Pachyrhizus erosus) is a tropical vine that won’t survive in temperate areas such as Melbourne. The two are not related even though they sometimes share a common name in the languages and dialects of Andean countries.

If you don’t have a balcony or patio, you are almost guaranteed to have a window upon which you can put your green stamp. Window boxes are the obvious choice to raise a herb garden, perennial patch or even a rockery with a selection of small cacti. Warning: make sure the box is secured properly, as there is nothing worse than plummeting petunias, especially for the person under them. If you’re an avid cook and have a sunny kitchen window then a herb garden is beautiful and practical. Don’t sacrifice function over beauty here – try quirky containers, a row of label-less tins, an old teapot or even your nana's fine bone china. Any of these ideas will draw a little more attention to a deco window or functional kitchen and give the place a sense of homeliness. Always a good impression, especially for those who are viewing your property as potential owner-occupiers. If your space is devoid of any natural light and you’ve tried everything, then you could always try something I am loath to suggest – faux plants. These have come a long way in the past five years and are almost unnoticeable as fakes. It’s about presentation of the space ,and if nothing else works, then why not? \

Idyllic beachside lifestyle eXpert ADvice \ Aquilo is adjacent to Reg Marlow Reserve, and developer Charter Hall has entered into a partnership with the City of Kingston to upgrade the park for the residents of Aquilo and the surrounding area. This would increase the area of the park by 30 per cent. The Weekly RevieW asked the City of Kingston to comment on the proposal. A spokesman said: "The redevelopment of the former Nylex site for housing will see the expansion of the Reg Marlow Reserve. Working closely with the permit applicant, its expansion will create a more social and family-oriented reserve of a generous proportion, which will be of benefit to the community at large as well as the future occupants of this new residential estate. “Kingston Council believes that the approved residential development achieves urban consolidation initiatives and strategies set out by both state and local planning policy. The site is recognised by Kingston Council's municipal strategic statement as a large residential opportunity site and a good prospect to provide a significant amount of housing to meet both the projected future housing demands put forth by the state government and the expected population growth of more than 15,000 people for the City of Kingston alone, as specified in the municipal profile. Further, council believes the development achieves a form of housing that is not foreign to the community of Kingston. Accordingly, council looks forward to its construction.”

ocated on a 3.3-hectare site where a Nylex factory once stood, Charter Hall’s Aquilo is a $75 million development of 119 two-storey two and three-bedroom townhouses that will appeal to families wanting to move up from their first house and for empty-nesters who are downsizing. The development has deliberately been designed to create a sense of community and security by minimising traffic – there is no through traffic within Aquilo – and a network of bike paths that has been created, both of which will undoubtedly appeal to this market. Designed by Brighton-based architects JDA, there are 13 different floor plans and house types and all enjoy a northerly aspect to make maximum use of natural light in living areas. There is a mixture of setbacks and façades, as well as pitched and flat roofs, so each house has its own distinctive character. Entry to the development is a vine-covered arbour, which is in keeping with the green development theme. A body corporate will be in place to maintain the streetscape and landscaping, which will feature drought-tolerant plants throughout. Charter Hall has also made a point of retaining mature native trees wherever possible. Inside, solid-timber floors are a counterpoint to 2.7-metre ceilings, and kitchen and bathrooms have stone benches and European fittings. Shareen Joel Design has created elegant and contemporary interiors, with high-quality cabinetry and functional design. The exterior timber cladding is reconstituted timber requiring minimal maintenance and contrasts with the clean architectural lines of the façades. Construction is due to start within weeks, with the first houses due for completion in 12 months. The entire project is due for September 2012 completion. \

Inner-city and inner-suburban living can only be afforded by most while renting, with many opting to live in outer suburbs because of increased affordability through construction groups and developers offering land-and-home packages.

l

GeneRation why It's easy to take control of your financial destiny and set yourself up for life.

Melbourne residential property has enjoyed extremely strong capital growth over the short and long term. Real Estate Institute of Victoria statistics show that from June 30, 2005 to June 30 this year, houses in the Melbourne metropolitan area rose 55.3 per cent, while units and apartments rose 54.4 per cent. Given recent trends, many first-home buyers feel that property ownership is beyond them. The current median price of Melbourne property, relative to average family income, is at an all-time high, so housing affordability is at an all-time low. This results from property growing faster than household income.

l

Obtaining a home loan since the global financial crisis has been difficult. Property deposit requirements have increased and access to credit has been onerous. Competition between financial institutions offering finance also appears to have been reduced, thereby resulting in less product choice.

Generation Y-ers are fighting their own bad habits when it comes to spending and living for the moment. Property acquisition requires financial savings and a discipline many do not have. From my experience, many in their 20s have more than one credit card or cards that have been maxed out. What hope do they have repaying $300,000 of debt when they can’t manage $3000 of personal liabilities with no asset to show for it?

l

Stamp duty costs are rising because of rising property values, so additional savings need to be generated to fund them.

So what can be done to rectify this situation and overcome the hurdles to property ownership? Several challenges are out of the control of Generation Y. Stamp


duties, credit and lending conditions, interest rates, grants and general inner-Melbourne affordability are all factors that the typical first-home buyer cannot influence. But these challenges should be a deterrent to live the Australian dream of home ownership.

"Don't Despair, take control of your financial Destiny, explore your options anD seek guiDance."

Measures that can be taken by buyers to improve their chances of affording a property include: l Financial sacrifices. It means disciplined financial decision making, living within your means and earning more than you spend. The more you sacrifice, the greater your chance of the desired financial outcome. No one else can help home-buyer hopefuls with this, as they are in control of their spending habits and savings. Financial advisers such as myself provide tools, such as budgeting spreadsheets, to assist with monitoring expenditure and creating investment plans as a means of forced saving. However, it requires financial sacrifice and discipline. l Start your financial discipline early. Waiting until the new financial year or new calendar year before you start sacrificing is not good enough. The earlier you start, the better off you’ll be. Even though it can feel as if property valuations move up faster than your capacity to save or invest, the earlier you start, the sooner you will be able to acquire a property. l Seek guidance. There are several parties who can guide you through the deposit-saving process. Parents can be a good starting point. They’ve been there before, albeit in a different property environment. While home-loan products and many other market

specific considerations have changed over the years, the art of saving has not changed. A mortgage broker can help in telling you of your borrowing options in line with financial institutional requirements. Brokers can assist with property planning, debt and cash-flow management; and most will have a sound understanding of the property market. They offer loan products that utilise equity in the family home, which may be a suitable option. There are also property advocates willing to work with Generation Y-ers in educating, informing and facilitating property ownership. Their knowledge can reduce the risk of making poor property decisions. Furthermore, there are qualified financial advisers happy to work with the younger generation and establish a long-term advising relationship to assist Gen Y to budget, save, invest and generally get them into a stronger financial position to reach goals. The longer your investment time horizon, the more risk you can afford to take on when saving for your deposit. Managed fund structures can be a good way of investing regular cash flow for longer-term benefit. Financial products, such as first-home saver accounts,

can be accessed with government financial benefits for eligible recipients. The downside of these structures is inflexibility, as there are redemption restrictions and minimum contribution requirements; despite their inflexibility, they can be effective for the right investor. High-yielding internet bank accounts are on offer to those prepared to link their daily bank account with an internet account. On the basis that you are disciplined in transferring money in and restricting transfers out, they are a good way of achieving financial flexibility. Many offer reasonably strong cash returns above the Reserve Bank's cash rate, as well as providing capital security and cost-effectiveness. So for Generation Y first-home buyers with shorter-term investment horizons, internet savings accounts are a good financial solution, and more appropriate than financial products and investments, which can fluctuate in capital value. Economically, it’s not all negative. Interest rates have recently pushed up from historical lows, which, from a borrower’s perspective, is bad but compared with what your parents went through, they are still attractive. Employment conditions are favourable and investment markets seem to be recovering. If you are a Generation Y-er, sometimes it must feel like you are going backwards and that property ownership is unrealistic. But don’t despair, take control of your financial destiny, explore your options and seek guidance. You will most likely find yourself in a stronger financial position and with a stronger likelihood of being able to afford a property. \

Fit for the Imperial family I

n the heart of Melbourne’s neo-Georgian-in-a-flash development belt, Metricon is taking quite a different approach. Its Designer Signature Collection is focused on home owners in the eastern and bayside suburbs who have an old home they wish to demolish and replace with a modern house. Metricon will take purchasers through a step-by-step guide to building a new house, from assisting them in finding demolishers, arranging a site survey and engineer’s report to getting plans approved by council. Before any concrete is poured or a single brick is laid, Metricon ensures that there are ticks in every box in a checklist that runs to pages. These houses represent real value for money, if you already own the land. Metricon’s price is about $11,000 to $12,000 a square while many comparable builders would charge $18,000 a square for a similar house. There are hundreds of standard features specified, from exterior finishing to kitchen appliances, right down to smoke alarms installed. The two Imperial houses are designed specifically for blocks 15.24 metres or 14.2 metres wide, commonly found in inner-eastern or bayside suburbs. Once you have signed up for a house on your block, you have access to the Metricon customisation studio, where you can choose from a range of design configurations, interior fittings and landscaping options, depending on your budget. A full electrical consultation covers whether you need, or want, an alarm, what light fittings to choose and your sustainable heating and cooling options. As one of Australia’s largest home builders, Metricon is able to provide a range of high-quality fittings, cabinetry, flooring and tiles at a competitive rate, ensuring that the finished houses meet the highest specifications. And these houses are not just for city slickers – Metricon recently built an Imperial house on a large country property in Plenty. \

EXPERT ADVICE \ WE ASKED Brett Bernard, of Metricon Homes, what home owners should know about the demolition of an existing home. “As the owner of the land, you are responsible for the demolition and you will require a permit from the local council before you can go ahead. You should not go ahead with the demolition of the property before you have a building permit for the new home. This eliminates the risk of having the existing home demolished and then finding that the council refuses the building permit.” The verdict: “Make sure you factor in the cost of the demolition in your budget for your new home.”

hen architects renovate their own homes, chances are that the end result is spectacular and of a very high quality. The architect-owner of this Camberwell house has achieved not just a brilliant blend of old and new but has created a total family package – without extending the footprint. Built in 1923, in the arts and crafts style, the house has had just five owners – a testament to the high regard in which it is held. Its rough-cast façade has two impressive leadlight bay windows. A terrazzo entry porch leads to double front doors with panes of bevelled glass with timber frames. Garden designer Lisa Stafford’s garden is a wonderful mix of plants that provide year-round colour and perfume. At this time of the year the heady fragrance of daphne greets you near the entrance.

The architect, who specialises in period renovations in the area, says the proportions of the rooms and the extensive timber panelling struck her when the family bought the house 16 years ago. “At the time things were being painted out, but this is English oak and it would have been a sacrilege to paint it,” she says. The floor plan means that you can circulate around the rooms and – apart from the timber-panelled entry hall – there are no corridors to use up valuable space. This house displays the hierarchy of ceiling and floor treatments that were common when it was built. The entry hall and two front rooms have oak beams in the ceiling and herringbone parquetry on the perimeter of the rooms. As the rooms decline in importance, the ceilings change from timber beams to strapped ceilings, but the main bedroom at the front has decorative plaster moulding on the ceiling.

SECRET’S OUT

1

There was huge interest in the renovation of this 1923 house in Alma Road, a street that is one of Camberwell’s best-kept secrets. Not many people go down Alma Road because it is a no-through road, but it contains some superb period houses. The open for inspection last weekend was attended mainly by families. People commented favourably on the sympathetic extension, and the north-facing backyard, and loved the English oak panelling, the agents said.

JELLIS CRAIG, 9818 2222 16 Alma Road, Camberwell Price: $2.5 million – $2.7 million Auction: August 14 at noon Fast facts: Period house, architect renovation, extensive oak panelling, polished floorboards, parquetry, open fireplaces, leadlight bay windows, en suite, walk-in wardrobe, powder room, study, marble-finished kitchen, European appliances, studio/ office, professionally designed and landscaped garden, swimming pool, close to transport, Camberwell Junction, schools and shops.

Below left: The swimming pool is in an idyllic garden setting.

“ARGUABLY ONE OF THE BEST RENOVATIONS I’VE SEEN IN RECENT TIMES.” RICHARD WINNEKE – AGENT

By the time you arrive at the laundry and powder room, the floors become mitred boards without the parquetry. Other original features are the open fireplaces with tall timber mantelpieces in the two front rooms and timber-framed, stained-glass windows. Their rose motif, a typical pattern of the era, is used throughout the house. The renovation was about doing something so that the family used the whole house, the architect says. “In Australia, we don’t need to build big, we need to build well,” she says. “We live in here and we want it to feel like a family home.” To achieve that aim, three small rooms, including a maid’s room and wood room, were demolished at the back of the house to make a large kitchen and living room. Bi-fold doors open from the living room to the north-facing terrace.

Below: The contemporary kitchen has a magnificent Turkish marble bench.

In the kitchen, the honed-marble island bench incorporates a much-loved and well-used timber chopping board. Along the wall, a stainless steel bench houses the latest Gaggenau appliances. Lunch is at the bench; dinner is in the dining room, which opens to the kitchen from double doors. Some of the original oak has been reused in the renovation. A dressing room off the main bedroom was turned into an en suite, with honed-marble benchtops, oak-framed mirrors and timber veneer cabinets. Similarly, part of the original bathroom is now a stylish powder room with a marble bench.The rest of the space is the laundry, with the mitred floorboards, which the architect says she could not sacrifice. “It was too strong a house to muck around with,” she says. “I was paring back to something that’s more simple and modern without losing the character of the original house.” The oak staircase, a testament to the stair maker’s craft, leads up to a study with a wall of bay windows overlooking the garden, terrace and swimming pool. Built-in bookcases are made from recycled oak. Three bedrooms and a children’s bathroom are off the study. The main bedroom, which has a bay window with window seat, connects beautifully to the streetscape. Back outside, the north-facing back garden has a series of terraces leading to the lawn and pool. Along the way you walk under an wisteria-draped arbour and past a large studio flooded with light, which is the architect’s office. It could easily be converted to a pool house or similar. For an example of craftsmanship combined with contemporary liveability, set in glorious surrounds, this house takes some beating. \

CAMBERWELL

9 KILOMETRES EAST OF THE CBD The suburb is supposed to have been named when an early settler thought it reminded him of the way three roads intersected in Camberwell, London. Those roads still intersect at Camberwell Junction. Originally agricultural, Camberwell is now an established middle-ring suburb. Unlike neighbouring Hawthorn, Camberwell had hardly any industrial sites. It is known for leafy avenues and period houses, including examples of the Queen Anne style by noted architects Ussher and Kemp. The Golf Links Estate, made up of 1930s villas, is regarded as one of Melbourne’s best-preserved suburban housing estates. At the Camberwell Sunday market, you can buy everything from jewellery to second-hand pots and pans and art. Among Camberwell’s famous residents are Dannii and Kylie Minogue, who went to Camberwell High School; actor Geoffrey Rush and favourite son Barry Humphries, who grew up in Christowel Street, in the Golf Links Estate. Humphries and Rush joined the fight to stop a retail and office development around Camberwell Station. The battle was lost and the development approved last year. Camberwell has plenty of restaurants and cafes, but there are no pubs because it is a dry area, so if you are looking for a local watering hole, it’s all on the Hawthorn side of Burke Road.

WE LOVE IT The future is here now in this critically acclaimed example of contemporary Australian design.

KEW The Orb House is an outstanding example of contemporary Australian architecture. Designed by award-winning architect Bojan Simic, the façade has a futuristic look – with a glass elevation, timber staircase and circular wall feature. The design, shortlisted for the 2010 Australian Institute of Architects Awards, was inspired by the dwellings of ancient Pompeii and has been built around a central courtyard, creating a tranquil introspective living environment. The space is defined by a curved wall that divides the two main areas of the house – the living area and the sleeping area. On the inside of the curved wall, the wonderful living areas have a minimalist aesthetic – crisp white walls, floor-to-ceiling glass and stainless steel finishes. The kitchen is a cook’s dream, with marble benchtops, white cabinetry, Miele appliances and a spacious pantry. Each of the bathrooms has a spa-like quality,

MALVERN EAST This rambling 1920s arts-and-crafts style house, in the prized Dorrington Estate, has a lot going for it. For starters, there is the land size – about 2024 square metres over two titles – that includes a tennis court and swimming pool. It is probably one of the largest land holdings in the estate. Then there are the massive family spaces – and the wonderful proportions of the rooms – making the sort of place in which children can run around and get lost – inside and out. Although renovated and updated with a modern kitchen, it still has many period features, including leadlight windows and timber-beamed ceilings. From the sitting room, two large bay windows look out to the park-like garden and tennis court. The garden, which includes eucalypts that are more than 100 years old, was a haven for the children growing up in this massive estate. The formal rooms at the front are imposing. Even the entry hall is large as befits a substantial house such as this one. The house is also surprisingly light. There is a study downstairs near the kitchen and another upstairs, where you will find the beautiful main bedroom – which has en suite and a walk-in wardrobe – with magnificent views over the garden from a large bay window. With its large number of rooms, this house offers loads of flexibility. Set back from the road, and with a side entrance in Willoby Avenue, it’s hard to believe that the city tram and the Central Park village shops are just minutes from the front gate. \ MARIA HARRIS

GLEN IRIS A house for all seasons might best describe this property in one of Glen Iris’ most convenient locations. The four-bedroom house, with a balcony on the façade, has several living areas, including a formal living room and television room. It is also receives abundant northern light in the kitchen and family areas. Even better, the indoor living areas open to the outdoor zones, making outdoor entertaining easy. The designer kitchen is made for busy family life, so that all storage is handy but dishes and equipment can be kept out of sight. There are parquetry floors and a stone-topped island bench, with full-height cabinets on one wall. This house is designed so that it can cope with large numbers of people inside and out. The swimming pool, with its paved sandstone surrounds and leafy backdrop, becomes an outdoor party area in summer. In winter, it’s just pleasant to look at from the comfort of the living room. All the bedrooms are large and the main has an en suite and walk-in wardrobe. Close to schools and parklands, the house is also a short trip to Chadstone on the freeway. \ MARIA HARRIS

Positioned between Hawksburn Village, Chapel Street and Victoria Gardens, this Victorian cottage is sophisticated and chic. Set behind the pretty façade, a high-ceilinged hall, lined with warm-toned timber floorboards, leads to two bedrooms. The first has built-in wardrobes, a classic open fireplace and tall windows that can be hidden behind elegant white shutters. The second has the same neutral colour palette and an even deeper fireplace. The newly renovated bathroom is tranquil with white cabinetry and modern fixtures and fittings. The highlight of the house, however, is the living area, which is flooded with light and overlooks a perfectly manicured garden. The kitchen is fitted with the latest European appliances and has an aqua splashback wall and wide breakfast bar. With off-street parking, ducted heating and cooling, roof storage and a laundry, this Victorian house certainly fuses period grace with contemporary comfort. \ FRANCESCA CARTER

If ever a house showed what an architect can do, it’s this one, which has been reworked and rebuilt to have garden views from every room, a large al fresco deck and a great mix of formal and informal living areas. Although 10 years old, the renovation, by Project Designs Architects, winner of the 2009 HIA Home of the Year, has not dated. The house has large living and dining rooms with open fireplace, a study, internal access to the garage and three bedrooms. The main bedroom with en suite and walk-in wardrobe is at the front. A granite kitchen with Miele stainless steel oven overlooks the family room, which opens to the timber deck. Two children’s bedrooms share a granite-finished bathroom with bath and separate shower. The rumpus room or home theatre has a granite bar and sliding doors to a lawn. Ducted heating, European door and tap fittings, abundant storage and a position opposite Greythorn Park and in the Balwyn High School zone, make this house worth a serious look. \ MARIA HARRIS

WHERE TO LIVE\

BY THE BAY Get in quick for your chance to own a piece of St Kilda’s history in this landmark terrace.

ST KILDA Part of the City of Port Phillip’s oldest terrace is on the market for the first time in 12 years. The three-storey house, part of Lansdowne Terrace, was built in 1856 by Frederick Wimpole, the same builder who gave us the George Hotel. Its long history has been well documented and includes a glorious past, then a decline in the early part of last century before it was bought and restored by more recent owners. The artistic vendors, who collect 20th-century decorative artworks, have poured $1 million into renovating and upgrading the property. That includes redoing the front garden by creating a series of “rooms” and planting a wisteria-draped colonnaded walk to the verandah. The triple-brick house, though built in the Victorian era, is based on a Regency design. Windows include a mix of original arched windows with stained-glass panels; there are baltic pine floorboards and original white marble mantelpieces surround the open fireplaces. Off the entry hall, the sitting and dining rooms are separated by an unusually broad curved archway. The original timber bi-fold doors separating the two rooms were reinstated after they were found under the house. The main staircase from the entry hall leads to a split landing. Take the steps to the front and you arrive at the main bedroom suite (with nursery, en suite and walk-in wardrobe). Go to the back of the house and you enter a vast central library/lounge lined with floor-to-ceiling bookcases and lit by an overhead skylight. This part of the first floor also houses three more bedrooms and a large en suite to the guest room. At the front of the house, the return verandah,

which has views to Mount Macedon on a clear day, has oriental-style bamboo blinds to protect it from the sun in summer. Houses like this always had the “maid’s stairs”, and this one is no exception. The maid’s stairs, still with turned timber handrail, leads to the first floor and the bedrooms and bathroom on this level. The kitchen, with its granite benchtops and solid maple timber cabinets (no veneer here), looks over the spacious meals area, where three arched windows with brilliant red, blue and

yellow stained-glass panels allow light to enter this part of the house. The kitchen and family area are contemporary. A German-built pantry with revolving doors is integrated into the maple cabinetry, and the commercial-quality oven and cooktop sit in front of a blue, yellow and red glass splashback based on a design of Dutch artist Piet Mondrian. The service rooms of laundry, storage and powder room are off a hall that opens on to the back garden and glass-roofed entertainment area. \ MARIA HARRIS
