Deli Hub Flavour of the month pre-prepared meals in the hot food bar that have proved so popular with the St Ives community, especially time-poor parents!

w i t h v i c t or g u l i e v from deli hub

Behind the Deli Hub counter is a large sign reading ‘Fresh food, fresh ideas’. This sentiment has driven how husband and wife Victor and Olga have operated since they first started in business 14 years ago. It continues to be the basis of their approach with Deli Hub today, from the show-stopping antipasti platters to the delicious

Victor started his food journey at the age of 12, having emigrated from Russia and moving with his family to Greece. He managed to find himself a job in the popular restaurant, Neo Cosmos in Athens, as a kitchen hand, where he accompanied his bosses to the local fish markets. After moving to Australia in 1983 with his mother and sister, Victor’s first job was at Perfection Chocolates, before working with his sister in a café in Darlinghurst, reinforcing his keen interest

in the food industry. In 2004, Victor and Olga started their first bistro in the city and served more than 1,400 people during the lunchtime rush hour each day for more than 10 years!

They cook all food on-site at Deli Hub, using only the finest fresh ingredients. Their meals are a fusion of traditional Russian fare, including Pirozhki doughnut pies with savoury fillings, as well as European, Thai, Indian, Asian and South American cuisine, with every dish made lovingly each day. “We found a niche in the local market,” says Olga. “Our home cooking and traditional family recipes cater to a variety of tastes and a range of different customers.” Combined with unique and exclusive cheeses, antipasti, caviar and other traditional deli items from boutique sources, Deli Hub can cater for everything from a simple family meal to a large party or corporate event.

After the intensity of the city buzz for so many years, Victor and Olga decided to look for a more creative outlet for their love of food... and discovered St Ives Shopping Village. “After observing The Village, we felt that the environment, atmosphere and the customers were friendly, so we decided to move to the area and build our Deli Hub. We wanted it to be like a hub where people could come together,” says Victor.

“We have a policy of serving fresh food daily, not keeping anything for the next day,” adds Victor Providing hot, ready-made food for breakfast, lunch and dinner is what sets them apart and has really earned them a place in the local St Ives community. “We have found St Ives Shopping Village to be full of diverse and wonderful people who have become like family to us and we love cooking for them,” says Olga.

Red Pearl/DCC Fashion Parade This VIP event, hosted by Marie-Louise Burdon-Smith and Allen Chafkin of Red Pearl and Tania Ali from DCC, saw lucky invitees sipping Moët while getting a sneak peek at the trends for Winter. Embellished sneakers, monochromatic outfits and bold patterns were the stand-out styles.

Elka Whalan Former Olympian swimmer Elka Whalan (pictured right and above left, in white shirt) visited the Village with the North Shore Mums in March to share her tips on ‘doing the juggle without the struggle’. “Our biggest issue is time,” she told the audience. “Learn the value of saying no and commit only to things you love and your family.”

Seniors’ Week Seniors’ Week has become a huge 10day event on our annual calendar, with more than 150 people participating in free workshops and activities. In addition, we hosted dementia care specialist Tim England. Speaking to the Village audience, Mr England said: “Most people aren’t aware that dementia is not a normal part of getting old, and there are lifestyle choices we can make to reduce our risks of developing dementia later in life.”

A Quick Yarn About


Don’t pass Go! St Ives Shopping Village hosted a special photography competition to source a shot of our local area that will appear on Ku-ring-gai Monopoly – a special version of the hit board game. With all proceeds being donated to local charities, the game is being released in September and will be available for pre-sale in July. See the Village Concierge for details. 1st Place: Kieran Payne 2nd Place: Jeff Harcourt 3rd Place: Zach Pattison

St Lucy's Exhibition

1-31 may

St Lucy's exhibition We were proud to host the artwork of two talented students from St Lucy’s School who tragically passed away in 2016. The artworks of Elisa and Martin Manrique was displayed in May in The Gallery and a bursary fund has been set up in their honour for children with autism. St Ives Village donated all money raised from the sale of our old furniture to this very worthy cause. Any donations to the Bursary Fund would be greatly appreciated – speak to the Village Concierge for details.


Wool Week Woolmark’s annual celebration of all things wool returned to St Ives in May and The Village had plenty of ways for the community to get involved Kicking off the celebrations early with a community knitting drive, the centre brought young and old together with two knitting stations, allowing shoppers to stop, rest and pick up a scarf to knit however much they liked, before carrying on with their shopping. The finished scarves were donated to Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women’s Shelter, and St Ives Shopping Village was overwhelmed by how many locals donated spare yarn and knitting needles to the cause. Before the event, Amy Edwards, Centre Manager at St Ives, said: “We welcome young and old, beginner to advanced knitters to join us so we can provide as many

scarves to the Women’s Shelter as possible. We’re hoping passers-by will come and start knitting, and when they have to leave someone else will take over their scarf.” . The St Ives team is thrilled with the donations of time and resources resulting in the wonderful scarves being passed on to the local charity. The initiative has had an amazing response and confirms the role The Village plays as a hub of the local community. Due to popular demand, a permanent knitting station is likely to be set up going forward. A big thank you to everyone who took part in Wool Week!

Heading North.. Tropical North Queensland With Belinda Hunt from Helloworld Travel

Great Aussie Adventures The remarkable getaways a stone’s throw from our doorsteps From reefs and rainforests to the Red Centre, with spectacular snowfields and mountain getaways in between, there’s somewhere in Australia for everyone to put at the top of their buckets list. And the best part is, they’re only a short flight or drive away... 32

With pristine beaches, lush rainforests and the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef, there’s a unique experience waiting at every corner in tropical north Queensland. “For a bird’s eye view of the ancient rainforest, take a ride on the Skyrail gondola and glide through the treetops, or walk amongst the canopy on

the Daintree aerial walkway,” recommends Belinda. “The Great Barrier Reef is an absolute must for any visitor to the area. You can snorkel, dive or see it from the air, for an experience you will never forget. Day trips run frequently from the mainland, so we can design your itinerary to take advantage of every adventure up north.”

The Kimberley Visit a corner of Australia that is unlike anywhere in the world. The vast and timeless landscapes of the Kimberley region in the north of Western Australia offer a sense of quiet remoteness filled with captivating charm. “Special moments, colourful characters and rewarding encounters are all part of the Kimberley’s experience,” says Belinda. “Not many think to visit the far north-west region, but it’s an incredible experience.”

And what are Belinda's top tips? “Enjoy a helicopter flight over the breathtaking Mitchell Falls and receive an expert interpretation of the ancient Indigenous rock art, which offers an invaluable insight into one of the oldest cultures in the world.” Chat to Belinda and the team to begin your adventure to Australia’s north.

THE H A R B OU R BY SCOTT BEVA N, $ 49 .9 9 So, you think you know our beautiful jewel of a harbour? Bevan (who you may recognise him from ABC TV of yore) reveals the fascinating but true tales of boat builders, ships’ captains, fishermen, artists, divers, historians, environmentalists and chefs as he kayaks in and out of each cove and wharf of our city. Bevan knows Sydney Harbour like no-one’s business. So good. Loved it!

Sailing South..


With Anneke Irik from Flight Centre Leave the mainland in the distance and board the Spirit of Tasmania to discover the local produce, stunning vineyards and historical buildings of the Apple Isle. “Whether you want to mix with Tasmanian devils or sample local beers and wines, Tasmania has a lot of variety on offer,” says Anneke. “Why not take a cruise down the Tamar River and enjoy the quaint riverfront villages on the way to Batman Bridge? On the way back, you cruise into the magical Cataract Gorge and Launceston’s waterfront precinct. “For a city break, you can tour through the countryside from the green rolling hills and fertile farmlands around Lilydale and Scottsdale to

the temperate rainforest of the Weldborough Pass. You’ll see the spectacular coastal region of the Bay of Fires, and pass by the open grazing lands of the Fingal Valley and Northern Midlands during the tour,” Anneke says.

A business was born with an online shop now sending monthly letters to hundreds of subscribers who receive her envelopes celebrating food, architecture, places to go, people to see, all with loads of local character. Nothing misses her gaze and it’s all enclosed within the covers of a book that makes me 11/10 happy.

The Nords have been doing it in spades for centuries and Partanen helps us celebrate all the clever Scandinavians who get it so right. The Nordic culture and approach to life allows Nords to enjoy more individual freedom and independence whilst embracing good health, healthy mind attitudes, business opportunities and family time. I am mad for a bit of Nordic insight!

Healthy Kids are Happy Kids Create a bright future for your tots with an easy-peasy approach to nutrition

We all want our kids to grow up strong and healthy, and nutrition plays a huge part in that. But it can be hard to break bad habits and introduce changes to your kids’ diets. Clare Greaney from O’Loughlin’s Medical Pharmacy shares her advice for getting your children to eat more healthily. “The most successful tips are the simple ones, which don’t require a major change for your kids, but have a big impact,” says Clare.

Quick and healthy life hacks


And it’s not just the kids that may be in for some changes. “It’s important to act as a role model to your kids and show them a healthy and balanced diet,” Clare advises. “The more normal it seems


Swap fruit juice for water Even 100% fruit juices contain a lot of sugar and none of the fibre you get from eating actual pieces of fruit. Offer water instead if your kids are thirsty. If they’re struggling with the taste, put a few orange and lemon slices into the water to give it a fruity flavour.

to have a diet high in fruits, vegetables and lean protein, the less resistance you’ll face.” If you think you’re struggling to give your kids the vitamins and minerals they need through their food, Clare and the team at O’Loughlin’s can recommend vitamins to act as supplements. “There are plenty of options available in the pharmacy that have reduced or replaced sugar content, so they keep kids’ teeth healthy while giving them the essential nutrients they need.” O’Loughlin’s Medical Pharmacy Level 2, 9440 0030

We’ve included some easy-to-prepare recipes on our website that are nutritious and delicious.

Learn to say NO Sweet treats are fine for special occasions but it’s important to teach your kids about portion control. Standing up to their tears and tantrums can be hard but will be beneficial for their health in the long run. It also helps to set a standard for how much it’s OK to eat when indulging in treats.
