A SNEAKY PEEK Work on Harris Farm Markets is underway, so we’re very excited to share an artist’s impression of the new-look store. They’ve promised a rejuvenated ‘market style’ shopping experience and it's going to be worth the wait! “Without sacrificing on fruit, veggies and premium groceries, the new store will also bring a fishmonger, bakery and espresso bar, as well as pour-your-own Single Herd Milk,” says Ian Wells, the Marketing Executive at Harris Farm Markets.

REDUCING OUR FOOTPRINT

You’ve probably noticed some freshening up at The Village for 2018, with new carpets and furniture throughout the centre. But did you know our makeover is environmentally friendly too? To avoid everything being sent to landfill, many of our old carpet tiles have been put to good use, with St Ives Men’s Shed and House with No Steps using the floor covering to refurbish some of their centres. For more information on how we’re building a sustainable Village, and tips on how you can help, read our feature on pages 34-35.

Growing up in the Philippines, food was always a big part of Chris’ life. As our resident Cooking Masterclass host, Chris draws on his diverse career to give his guests a truly

authentic food experience. “I did my training in fine dining and from there have worked in a huge variety of roles, including being a chef for the Sydney 2000 Olympics and as a coach on MasterChef,” shares Chris. “I love being able to create great quality food from scratch and show my customers how food should look. Creating a menu is about great flavour and using fresh ingredients to produce healthy meals that are really delicious.”

From Australia to France and back, Rebecca is bringing her unique approach to desserts to The Market Room. “When I first moved to Paris, I had no idea where it would lead me. I studied as a French Pâtisserie chef and instantly fell in love with all the desserts France had to offer,” says Rebecca. “It’s amazing how much French Pâtisserie introduces you to different textures and flavours. Nothing is off limits!” she says. “As soon as I returned to Australia, I opened a cafe and started introducing my desserts there. I love using natural products, and that’s demonstrated by the real fruit purées we use to create the perfect flavour. I am excited to introduce real, authentic French Pâtisserie into The Market Room and show how beautifully light desserts can be.”

Since leaving their corporate jobs behind, St Ives born and bred owners Paul and Emma have built a network of stores across Australia that continues to reshape the way we shop. “Starting The Source was quite an organic process,” says Emma. “We’d moved to Byron Bay and bought a local health food store. We poured our hearts and souls into the busy store but realised that a lot of our products were heavily packaged and

that there had to be a better way to reduce our environmental footprint. The couple extended the store to include a juice bar, deli and about 40 large gravity bins filled with bulk foods, explains Emma. “We now have more than 30 stores across the country that are championing the return to this old-school method of buying produce.”

Kingsmen Hair Level 1, 9440 4997 @kingsmenhair_stives

The team at Kingsmen Hair gave us the lowdown on choosing the perfect beard for your face shape. For men with a triangular face, opt for a full beard that balances your narrow chin with your wide jawline. Men with round faces should be looking to ‘square off’ their face with a neatly trimmed beard that’s hard along the cheekbones. A rectangular face looks best with a short and neatly trimmed beard, as does a square face. This style works to show off the strong lines you already have. No chin? No problem! Keep your beard full and have it shaped to give the illusion of a stronger jawline. And for men with an oval face shape, you can get creative and try a few styles until you find what’s right for you, as most styles will suit the shape of your face.

Easy as pie

Roll your dough, warm the oven and ready yourself for the irresistible aroma of a homemade pie... You might be missing your summer salads, but Autumn is the perfect excuse to break out the comfort food in the form of these mouth-watering sweet and savoury pies.

Apple & quince l attice pie Short crust pie pastry* 1.25 kg mixed apples (half Granny Smith and half sweeter ones, such as Fuji) 1/3 cup plus 2 tsp. sugar 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 1 cup drained poached quinces*

METHOD

1. Cut sheet of pastry into a 35cm round, and cut second sheet into 2.5cm wide strips using a fluted pastry cutter or knife. Transfer strips to a baking sheet. Chill until needed. 2. Peel, core, and cut apples, half into 2cm thick slices and half into 2.5cm chunks – you should have 7 to 8 cups. Toss with ⅓ cup sugar and the lemon juice. 3. Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add apples. Cook, turning gently, until apples soften at edges but are still crisp in the middle for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and add quinces. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet, let cool, then chill until cold. 4. Preheat oven to 190˚C (170˚ fan). Evenly fill pie shell with fruit and juices. Weave pastry strips over pie in a lattice: Evenly space half the pastry strips over pie in one direction (an odd number is best).

Whole Roast Cauliflower Shopping List Romeo’s SUPA IGA 2 large heads cauliflower 1 clove garlic, halved ¼ cup olive oil 4 tbsp Dijon mustard Salt and freshly ground black pepper ½ cup fresh parsley leaves, roughly chopped ¼ cup grated parmesan Lemon wedges, for serving

METHOD

1. Put an oven rack in the bottom of the oven and preheat to 230˚C (210˚ fan). Line a baking tray with foil. 2. Remove leaves from the cauliflower, then trim the stem so the cauliflower sits flat on the prepared baking sheet. Rub the outside of each head with the cut garlic. 3. Whisk together the oil, 3 tbsp mustard, ½ tsp salt and black pepper in a small bowl. Put the cauliflower on the baking sheet and brush the entire outside with the mustard-oil mixture. 4. Roast cauliflower for up to 1 hour, until golden and tender (a skewer inserted into the centre should pass through easily). Rest for 5 minutes. 5. Meanwhile, combine parsley and parmesan in a small bowl. Brush the outside of the roasted cauliflower heads all over with the remaining 1 tbsp mustard and generously sprinkle with the parmesan mixture. 6. Cut cauliflower into thick wedges and serve on plates with a sprinkle of salt, lemon wedges and any extra parmesan mixture.

Place a potato between the handles of 2 wooden spoons or 2 chopsticks.

Put the potatoes on a baking sheet and brush on the butter mixture, making sure to get in between all the slices. 5. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes.

With a number of flavoursome national dishes including their famous pho and an abundance of street food to sate your tastebuds, Vietnam’s cuisine varies by region.

fresh herbs and local produce are used in abundance throughout. “If you have half a day to spare on your adventure, Hoi An offers up some great tours,” says Belinda. “Start in the local market getting lost in the smells and sounds, then take a leisurely cruise to a cooking school. There, you’ll get to watch demonstrations from


VILLAGE living professional chefs and practise the techniques they’re sharing.” Vietnam’s charm lies in the street vendors and local producers that supply each area. “Take a tour that will lead you on a walk through the alleyways filled with stalls, and meet the vendors while sampling their authentic cuisine,” recommends Belinda. “You get a really great sense of their local life and the best part is, you’re eating food just like the locals.”

BUILDING A SUSTAINABLE VILLAGE Our retailers are leading the way with waste-free shopping initiatives At The Village, we’re constantly implementing new practices and technologies to help care for our environment and revolutionise the way we operate – so we’re delighted to see so many of our retailers embracing ways to reduce our human footprint on the planet.

Recycle Bakers Delight is among the retailers at The Village who are reducing their waste. They donate leftover bread to charities including The Salvation Army and the Matthew Talbot Hostel, who gather excess food and redistribute it to those people who need it most.

We can all make a difference. That can start with looking at the way we shop and making small changes to reduce the amount of waste we’re creating, as well as buying produce from ethical sources that prioritise sustainability.

stivesvillage.com.au

We’ve just welcomed new store The Source Bulk Foods, which stocks a range of local and organic produce in large storage containers, allowing you to take in and fill up your own reusable receptacles. As the biggest specialised bulk food retailer in Australia, it’s safe to say that owners Paul and Emma know a thing or two about wastefree shopping (see page 20). So, gather your old jars, containers and reusable bags and fill them up with the huge range of healthy wholefoods!

Reduce

The Athlete’s Foot is implementing great initiatives. Owner John Rae works with a charity, Shoes for Planet Earth, where you can take your old sports shoes into the store and they’ll be donated to kids in need in Africa. Visit John instore for more information about getting involved.

34

Reuse

One of the easiest steps in changing the way you and your family think about sustainability is by reducing your use of non-recyclable and singleuse products. Recently, Harris Farm Markets banned plastic shopping bags from their familyrun stores and have introduced reusable paper bags instead. You can also use their recyclable boxes for your groceries or purchase stronger, fabric shopping bags.

Beat the stubborn leftovers of over-indulgence and missed workouts with an innovative new treatment from Emerse Skin & Laser Clinic. “We’ve seen clients get great results with our SculpSure™ treatment,” says manager Jesse. “It uses light-based technology to permanently reduce fat cells in areas such as the abdomen, arms and love handles. It’s non-invasive and doesn’t hurt, so it suits a wide range of clients.” A quick 25-minute treatment can destroy up to 24 per cent of fat in the treated area, plus there’s no downtime. “Most of our clients come in on their lunch breaks or while they’re shopping. One in particular was elated to see results in the first seven days.” For a better look at how it works, check out the video on Emerse’s website. When you’re ready to shape up, see Jesse and her team for a no-obligation consultation. Emerse Skin & Laser Clinic Level 2, 9488 9788 @emerseskinandlaserclinic

reusable bags

EMBRACE INNOVATION Take advantage of innovative kitchen products that replace single-use items, such as Bee Wrappy Beeswax Food Wraps (instead of cling wrap) from Plenty Kitchen & Tableware.

When buying fresh produce, avoid using individual plastic bags. Instead put fruit and veg together in a reusable bag. Take paper bags for items such as beans and snow peas, and use your own reusable containers when stocking up at Deli Hub or The Source Bulk Foods.
