Inner West whispers Local gossip, rumour, hearsay and unsubstantiated fact... Mr Darcy is back - Juice discrimination - Grant pleads guilty Byrne sworn in as Mayor on Wednesday. Liberal Vera Ann Hannaford will be deputy. Rather than some malicious "front-stabbing" or “11th hour” coup we have come to expect from Auspol, Greens and Labor arranged to swap the mayoral position each year in the LGA. Hannaford’s selection speaks to the legacy of Leichhardt’s lurch to the right in 2012 and tight competition between Leichhardt’s four Labor and Greens Councillors. l The Alexandria tip saga continues. Marrickville Council is researching if it can issue a ‘Stop Work Order’ for the stockpile removal work taking place at the site, directly intervening with State Government plans. Mark Gardiner says they are investigating this option as, “Residents are adamant that removal of material from the site [which contains asbestos] has not been managed properly.” The Council has affirmed its “absolute opposition to the WestConnex project.” l Leichhardt has gone Labor again, with Darcy WE ARE C!AO Satire for the soul Righteous Rightie flies into a rage at the love being showered on a cat-strangling commo Dear RR – I’m a Greens/Labor voter but I must confess to a raging man crush on the new Liberal leader. Despite being from the other side of town, doesn’t he represent everything any self-respecting Inner Westie aspires to be? Intimidatingly intelligent but gracious enough to try to disguise it with unconvincing displays of selfdeprecation. Rich enough to travel by private jet but still strangely enamoured of public transport. And never short of a classical allusion or bon mot while making yet another crowd-pleasing Q&A appearance. I, for one, am happy to see gay marriage put on the backburner, an utterly ineffectual climate change policy maintained, the lower orders’ penalty rates slashed, the Murray-Darling basin drained dry in a doomed attempt to turn this sunburnt country into a rice-growing superpower, and boats full of Syrian refugees machine gunned on sight if it means Question Time is worth watching for the first time since the masses sent Keating packing in 1996. Richard, Camperdown RR replies - I assume from your letter you’ve mistaken me for one of those quisling members of the conservatariat – like that degenerate Petersham-dwelling hipster Chris Mitchell – who are breaking out the good port and nonCuban cigars at the thought of a Turnbull-facilitated sugar hit in the polls. Mark my words – and they’re ones I’m happy to swear on a pile of Ayn Rand tomes in Ray Hadley’s presence – both the nation and the conservative parties will rue the day that vainglorious, crypto-socialist, media whore cut down the noble Abbott. Let’s see just how excited every Australian is to be alive when the Daesh death cult is beheading gender-fluid trendoids on Norton Street while Turnbull stands around giving learned lectures on the rise and fall of the Ottoman Empire. And don’t expect our telegenic new PM to pull you out of rough surf or turn up to douse the fire destroying your house either, you ungrateful bastards. n Email your dilemma to info@ciaomagazine.com.au. ADVERTISING Sonya Madden sonya@ciaomagazine.com.au Davies of now defunct RG Dance School in Chiswick pleaded guilty to 28 charges related to child pornography, sexual intercourse with a minor, and the production of child pornographic material on Monday. A mother of girls who attended RG Dance was jailed last September for sending sexually explicit images of her daughters to Davies. She told SMH she was scared he would relegate her daughters to back-row dancers. l Newtown Boost Juice has become the subject of an outraged video after a uni student was denied a free juice. Boost Juice’s ‘What’s your name game’ campaign has been releasing three names every day to receive free product, Monday’s name was Alex – but as the video laments the Newtown store only gave juice to boys named Alex. The student said the behavior was ‘transphobic and shameful,’ and that the video wasn’t just about the juice anymore. l Grant JOURNALIST Max Kobras max@ciaomagazine.com.au JOURNALIST Kassia Aksenov kassia@ciaomagazine.com.au FOOD Melissa Leong info@ciaomagazine.com.au LOCAL history St John’s Anglican Church Cemetery St John’s Anglican Church was constructed in 1840. It is both the first church built in between Sydney and Parramatta, linking the two colonial towns, as well as the oldest surviving building in Ashfield. The attached cemetery dates back to 1845 but ceased to be utilised around the start of the 20th century, from which point beloved family members were laid to rest at Rookwood Cemetery. Nowadays, the cemetery is used for more lively community activities, such as spooky movie nights and picnics! n Image credit: Sonya Madden Ashfield’s historic resting place WINE Winsor Dobbin info@ciaomagazine.com.au ART DIRECTOR Paden Hunter paden@ciaomagazine.com.au Things we love: EDITORIAL Phoebe Moloney phoebe@ciaomagazine.com.au Contributors: Nigel Bowen, Lianna Taranto, Elise Bruem, Rebecca Foley, Valentina Giannelli Publisher: Sonia Komaravalli Ciao loves you, and our photographers only supply photos for publication with consent.

Community Life Sprouting your wings Now spring has sprung there's lots of local fresh-air fun to be had! We’ve finally made it to the end of the coldest winter in 15 years, and if you’re anything like me and too cheap to pay for heating, it was a very, very long one. Aaah spring, a time to get outside and enjoy the warmth before it becomes unbearably hot and everyone becomes unbearably whiny about just how hot it is. If you haven’t yet exited from your hibernation hole yet, don’t worry. There’s no need to go too far from the comfort of your home, with plenty of ways to enjoy the sunshine in the Inner West. R OA D T E ST n Elise Bruem RANT New suburb, old problems Another week, another press story about the Wentworth Point planning and transport nightmare! Predictably, there is a government response saying everything is in hand but the residents know it's all just rhetoric. We get token band aids, nothing more. Trying to exercise Ugh. Just the word exercise makes me pine for those cold winter days again. I find that society is a lot more understanding of laziness when it’s dreary outside. But now it’s spring that means one thing: summer is around the corner, so now is the time to get it together and pick up your exercise regime where you left off. Arguably the best place to exercise in the Inner West is the Bay Run and unless you’ve been living under a rock/you’re new to the area, you’ll know why. There’s no better way to distract yourself from your exhaustion than the views of the water (but the seven kilometre full cicuit is optional, of course). Kid-friendly Ashfield park small inner-city suburb backyard. Take the family or that special someone out for a picnic. The kids can run wild on the playground while you eat quiche and enjoy the scents of flowers and freshly cut grass. This probably isn’t one for the hayfever prone though; nothing kills romance like a runny nose and bloodshot eyes. On a weekend afternoon, residents know it's not worth heading out via the dastardly roundabout when the ten minute trip to Rhodes can turn into an hour or more to get home as we compete with DFO shoppers. In the afternoon peak, the 20-minute commute between North Ryde and Wentworth Point can turn into a two hour trip and from Concord West station it has taken two hours during the Royal Easter Show! I moved to Wentworth Point in 2008 when the area was still forming. There were fewer than 2,000 apartments at that stage and around 6,000 expected, per the Homebush Bay West DCP that was approved in 2005. The intentions for a much greater population quickly became clear while both state and local governments totally disregarded the infrastructure required. The original plan rules restricted the number of car spots in a building but the lack of public transport means that a car is a necessity. Those who catch the train drive to the station. The alternative is a meandering bus trip to Strathfield through Newington. The Homebush Bay Bridge will assist here but this essential infrastructure is funded by developers at a cost of increased apartments at Wentworth Point. The spokesperson for the developer group funding the bridge has stated that the bridge will solve the traffic problems and we should all catch public transport. Well, how does that work? The morning commuter trains are already standing room only! In my own case, my husband was disabled, undergoing chemotherapy and a frequent visitor to Concord Hospital. Who would take a chronically ill, dying man on multiple buses for a trip taking more than an hour if it could be avoided? There are a few critical solutions required: provide a westbound exit off WestConnex at Hill Rd (under current plans, our residents can go to work in the city, but they can't come home); fix the Australia Ave (DFO) roundabout; upgrade the Parramatta Rd/Silverwater Rd intersection; increase the number of city trains; and provide more commuter express ferries to the city. The government is rolling in money from Wentworth Point that could fund these upgrades. The sale of RMS land at Wentworth Point was reported at $300m. Stamp duty on the FIRST apartment sales will be over $800m, with more coming in as resales occur. There is at least $40m in developer contributions for Wentworth Point and a total of $80m coming from the combined WP/ SOP precinct. It's time for governments to stop talking and start delivering adequate infrastructure to support their growth plans for Sydney! n Bronwyn Evans President, Wentworth Point Community Central Spring Cleaning It is a truth universally acknowledged that you will spend a significant portion of your adult life cleaning. And, yes, I understand the pain of cleaning when you know everything is just going to get messy again. But with a new season, there’s no better time than now to open up the house and get rid of that lingering musty smell. Got more than just dust to get rid of? Your local council will be doing household clean-ups during spring, so you can finally throw out that old broken television that’s been wasting space in the garage. Check with your council for your household clean-up date. Frolicking The hills are alive, with the sound of… airplanes I guess, this is the Inner West. Everyone loves a good frolic (I think they also just like the word). In spring there’s no better place to be than outside and your local park is probably a lot more appealing than your very Al Fresco Dining This is what the warmer weather is all about. Who needs exercise when you can have all the benefits of sunshine and food at the same time? Nothing says Inner West like cafes, so find one with some outdoor seating, order a latte and some banana bread (you can work that off on the Bay Run later) and sit back and enjoy a bit of people watching. Trust me, you deserve it after doing all the other things on this list. Get sweaty at Johnson Park, Dulwich Hill Community Charity Bay Walk The Leichhardt-based Father Atanasio Gonelli Charitable Fund, established in 2011, has been involved in dozens of programs to aid the less fortunate members of the Australian community. The Fund's latest event supports those suffering from Alzheimers and dementia. Organised with the Italian-Australian Youth Network, the Community Charity Bay Walk will be held this Sunday, 27th September from 8am-12:30pm.

n Local Gigs Tuesday 29th September n Local screens Hockey Dad This Wollongong two-piece is another great example of garage-surf rock, mixing their upbeat janky guitar with a driving vocal lead. There is a nice touch of angst to it as well, without ever treading in to whiney territory. Good for a tipsy bounce around. Newtown Social Club, $15 FREE TICKETS Win movie passes and DVDs n Ciao's Picks Emily Blunt: Lost in the Breaking Bad-lands Sicario There will be blood: Cop that, Game Of Thrones! The Hockey Dads Macbeth Aussie director Justin Kurzel shot to infamy with the moody chiller Snowtown about a small town serial killer a few years ago. Where to next? Well Shakespeare, of course, and right from the start, we can see we’re in for something amazing. On a misty heath, backlit by a blood red sun, a battalion of soldiers loyal to the king tear into the rebels. Blood spurts, limbs fly, vital organs pour out into the mud and we get our first glimpse of our hero (Michael Fassbender), still the noble warrior, yet to be turned by his ambitious wife (Marion Cotillard) into a king-slayer and demonic killer himself. These actors are two of the greatest of our times and they’re utterly magnetic, both together and in their later soul-tearing anguish. This is all a long way from the cramped stagey versions of the past, in fact most of the scenes and iconic monologues are played like nothing you’ll have ever seen before. Some are quite steamy; there’s no chance this version will be shown in high schools! CTC from Oct 1 at Palace Norton St. The Diary of a Teenage Girl “I had sex today. Holy shit!” announces 16-yearold Minnie (Bel Powley) into her audio diary. The man involved is her pot-smoking mum’s (Kristen Wiig) 35 year-old boyfriend (Alexander Skarsgard), a fantastic worm. Marille Heeler’s intoxicating debut unnerved US censors and it’s hard to imagine a film set today doing this without being hysterical, judgmental and prurient – most likely all three. But the '70s were different (just ask your parents). And so is this funny, heartfelt, honest, tender and altogether terrific film. MA15+ on now at Dendy Newtown. Friday 2nd October Gods and Monsters 25 years in the business and this is the first time that Gods and Monsters are coming down to Australia. Why? Because they are involved in a Tim and Jeff Buckley tribute. Well, any reason is a good reason, at least for the fans. The Factory Theatre Saturday 3rd October Denis Villeneuve’s newest film, his darkest yet, is that rarest of cinema beasts: a really brainy action-thriller. Emily Blunt plays a FBI agent in the most brutalised place on our planet right now, the drug-trade devastated borderlands of the US and Mexico, and we see the barbarity, the mutilated corpses and the casual savagery with her agonised eyes. She’s totally out of her depth after being assigned to a mission to Juárez with mysterious anti-cartel enforcer Matt (Josh Brolin) and the even more shadowy Alejandro (Benicio del Toro). “Nothing will make sense to your American ears," he tells her. “And you will doubt everything we do.” Many will argue this exposes the insanity of our drug laws, and maybe... but without Western drug-users’ wallets pulling all the strings, none of the insanity would even exist. Alejandro puts it better in the chilling final scene, which shows just where our society’s casual drug use has taken us. “We’re in the land of wolves now,” he tells a stricken Kate. “And you’re not a wolf.” MA15+ on now. Far Away Stables I thought emo was pretty much entirely dead; maybe that's why these guys call themselves punk rock. But don't be deceived, as every lyric is a complaint, but without being poetic, and the instrumentals are just meh.

Child 44 Mad Max’s Tom Hardy proves yet again that he can do anything, and here he takes several beatings and still sees off hit-men while all the time maintaining a borscht-thick Russian accent. Gary Oldman also speaks that way; everyone does in this adaption of Tom Rob Smith’s best-selling crime thriller set in the Stalin-era. Even Noomi Rapace, who also flashes us a bit of Lisbeth Salander by knifing a thug. The premise is brilliant, for according to Marxist dogma, crime was a capitalist construct and “there is no murder in paradise”. Let’s see how police investigator Leo Demidov (Hardy) deals with that when faced with a real serial killer rather than his day job of locking up thousands of class traitors. Nostalgic anti-capitalist fans will love the corrupt bureaucrats, clanking steam trains, grimy snow-bound streets and dark pokey flats. Great stuff, with quite a few thrills too.

n Your say n Sustainability n Local news Have your online interactions helped facilitate actual community engagement? “Yeah I think it has. I have met lots of people from the community and I have also given people some information about the area of work I am involved in.” Sophie, Newtown “After moving to a new city and really not knowing anyone my age, I found that online community interests groups were a great way to meet people with similar interests.” Angeline, Ipswich “Yes, I found my current share house and housemates on an online community group.” Pete, Newtown “I am a member of an online wine and dine community group for mums in my area and I’ve met up with a group of mums a handful of times. I’m a member of other Facebook groups which I use for ideas such as recipe suggestions and playgrounds to visit outside of my area that I otherwise wouldn’t know about.” Angela, Killara "I am in a Facebook group regarding feminism and find it's helpful keeping up with news, protests and hearing other takes on political issues." Lena, Five Dock The incredible rise in popularity of pay it forward groups (basically people who give away their stuff) reduces landfill, brings communities together and helps people declutter and get rid of crap they no longer need. The sudden surge of interest in groups such as Marrickville’s Pay It Forward has left administrators stunned, and some patrons are using their parents 2020 postcode address just so they can be accepted into the new 'cool group'. But when you hear that someone paid forward a car, why wouldn’t you want to be included in this fabulously generous (and no doubt well-heeled) community. The closed group has around 6500 Facebook members with many more on the pending list. Sarah McGregor, Kathy Bader, Fi Robinson and Samantha Molyneux started the group after successfully administering the Marrickville 2020 group (which discusses local issues and events). The idea was built on the model commonly used in New Zealand, where the group is geographically limited, and members have to abide by a strict non-commercial, polite and friendly code of conduct - and give away quality stuff. People have been known to giveaway all sorts of things from personal services to worm wee to a whole house for a family fleeing domestic violence. Samantha says, “We don’t allow large organised charities to promote/collect on our page, not because we don’t think they’re important but because our focus is to help the smaller, unsupported causes and just our local community in general” (whatisthehaps.com). So will charities lose some of the “trash” pie to PIF schemes? After a recent visit to our local Salvation Army depot, otherwise known as Tempe Tip, there doesn’t seem to be any shortage of stock. Charities also charge for their stock, Waste Watcher Big fish gets feather in cap Sydney’s ubiquitous De Costi Seafood was awarded Best Seafood Business Award this year at the Sydney Fish Market’s Seafood Excellence Awards. De Costi seafood was started by two couples in 1981, George and Andrea Costi and Harry and Helen Demetriou. De Costi is now the largest independent seafood supplier in NSW. Earlier this year Tassal (a Tasmanian salmon producer) offered to purchase the family business in two stages, the first comprising of a pay out of $50 million. Despite the buy out George Costi says he hopes to stay involved with the company as long as possible. George said. "No one thought De Costi would grow the way it did. We've had a good run!" On Wednesdays we wear secondhand fur and although in most cases it is very cheap (my first uni lounge was $20), it is still not free. Items at Garage Sales and secondhand shops might also be really cheap, but again, they are not free. The PIF scheme is the trash to treasure model of the future, with consumers getting the benefit immediately. And the 'feelgood' factor of buying from a charity (where you know your money is being put back into funding programs to reduce homelessness, domestic violence etc) can still be attained when you PIF. The Inner West Freecycling group has around 1900 Facebook members. Started by Inner Westie Nicole Coombes, the group took off and regularly provides new homes for everything from frocks to furniture. Again this group is limited to those in the Inner West only. For those who don’t have the right address to get into these newfangled groups, maybe you'll need to create a fake ID (or steal your friend's). n Image credit: Salvation Army Seafood specialist's swansong Blessing of the Fleet Sydney Fish Market is hosting a day of family-friendly activities to celebrate the Blessing of the Fleet on Sunday 27 September. The festivities, including a blessing ceremony, are held in partnership with the local Italian group, Association Bangara Calabra Sydney. Following the blessing, the festivities will showcase an array of Italian-themed celebrations including performances from Italian singers Chris Ninni (The Voice), Natalie Colavito (XFactor) and Alfredo Malabello and a very very competitive spaghetti competition. n  For more info go to www.sydneyfishmarket.com.au Petersham resident and street photographer Lyndal Irons is coming to the tail end of an ambitious project – to shoot the comings and goings of Sydney’s Parramatta Road. Over the past four years, Irons has been interviewing and documenting the people who work, live and play on Sydney’s oldest (and most hated) road. Irons estimates her photographs of the thoroughfare run into the thousands. “I definitely wouldn’t describe it as ugly,” Iron says. “Difficult, perhaps. It is difficult to enjoy, but if you put the time into enjoying it, I think it’s the best road in Sydney.” Irons says she has run into many unusual characters while shooting her subject. “Just the other day I was in Downtown Music [in Annandale] and Mark Evans from AC/DC was there. I’ve also interviewed Nikki Webster at her Parramatta Road in Film dance school.You don’t expect that the closed doors you open will lead to amazing worlds and people.” Irons hopes to exhibit her final collection of photographs next year. Currently, Irons is working from an Annandale shopfront, collecting stories about the road from passersbys as part of Leichhardt’s Beyond the Fringe Festival.“Meeting people helps me get ideas for a shoot, usually with a lead someone gives me or a place I didn’t know about,” Irons said. Is she nervous about ending her artistic road trip? “I think so. I suspect it’s a subject that will haunt me until I return to it and I suspect I will want to return!” n You can share your Parramatta Road tales with Lindsay until the end of September at 121 Parramatta Rd.

Arabella Restaurant stays strong Arabella Lebanese Restaurant on the west-end of King St in Newtown was the target of two vandalism attacks this week, believed to be racially motivated. Early on Monday morning the 12 metres of glass along the front of the restaurant was smashed in. On Wednesday morning at 1am, owner Mohamed Zouhour caught a man smashing a basin at the rear of the restaurant. The man was arrested by police and will appear at Newtown Local Court next Wednesday. Zouhour has since hung a banner over the damaged shop-front reading, “No racism down under: live the dream.” The restaurant reopened for service on Wednesday night and is expected to stay in Newtown despite ongoing abuse. Men's Shed in Leichhardt Leichhardt Council will be running a Men’s Shed from this October at Lilyfield’s Blackmore Oval.

in the kitchen Char siu pork belly Method  with Olivia Mackay, n www.scoffandquaff. wordpress.com The sight of glossy, sticky, pink char siu (Chinese barbecue pork) does things to me. There’s a reason restaurants hang strips of it in their windows: I don’t believe it is possible to walk past one of these displays without salivating. For a wonderfully simple meal, serve either hot or cold with boiled white rice and steamed Asian greens. 1. Cut pork lengthways (with the grain) into long pieces roughly 3-5cm wide. 2. Combine all other ingredients except honey. 3. Massage marinade into the pork then marinate in the refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours – overnight is ideal. 4. Remove pork from marinade and allow to come to room temperature and preheat oven to 180C (or 160C fan-forced). 5. Place fat-side up onto a wire rack over a tray filled with 1cm water. (The tray catches the excess sauce and juices that drip away while the water prevents the sauce from burning in the tray) Wine with Winsor n www.wdwineoftheweek.blogspot.com Calabria 2013 Private Bin Montepulciano The Calabria family in the Riverina are enjoying great success with several Italian grape varieties and this take on Montepulciano, originally from the Abruzzo region of Italy, is a real winner. It’s a juicy, vibrant and slurpable soft red that has already won a show gold medal – a real accolade for a budget offering. Deeply coloured and brightly flavoured with savoury undertones, this would be a wonderful match for richly sauced pasta dishes. $15 European quality Portuguese accent Tulloch 2015 Vineyard Selection Verdelho Family-owned Hunter Valley winery Tulloch makes a wide range of high-quality wines, but is probably best known for its hugely successful takes on the Portuguese grape verdelho. This is a very good example with fruit selected from three premium vineyards to produce a very fruity, fresh and zingy white with a high refreshment factor. There’s a few grams of sweetness on its palate, fresh tropical fruit flavours and some crisp acidity. $18. Invest in pork bellies! 6. Bake for 20 minutes, basting with leftover marinade halfway through. 7. Combine leftover marinade with honey and baste pork once more. 8. Turn the oven to grill mode and cook for 2-3 minutes or until pork is slightly darkened and caramelised. 9. Leave to rest for ten minutes before slicing into 1cm pieces. 10. To make a sauce, heat extra juices in a saucepan with leftover marinade until cooked, syrupy and hot. Serves 4 Ingredients • 1 piece skinless free-range pork belly, approx. 500g • 2.5 cm piece ginger, finely chopped • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped • 3 tbsp hoisin sauce • 1 tbsp tomato sauce • 1 tbsp light soy sauce • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce • 2 tbsp Shao Xing wine (you can also substitute dry sherry) • 2 tbsp palm sugar (or brown sugar) • 1 tbsp honey • 1 tbsp sesame oil • 1 tsp Chinese five-spice Something stylish Brachetto d’Soumah 2015 Brachetto is a red Italian grape variety grown mainly in the Piedmont region, often used to make sweetish sparkling wines. This is the new-wave take on the variety by Yarra Valley winery Soumah, a still and aromatic latepicked, dessert wine with 50 grams of residual sugar bursting with rose water and strawberry flavours. Bright pink, it is both sweet and brisk and would be fabulous with anything from Portuguese tarts to pavlova. You’ll find it at Annandale Cellars. $29 for 500mls. www.gourmetontheroad.blogspot.com MARKET UPDATE n Fruit: Celebrate the mango season’s start with these tasty faves coming in at $2-5 each, while the last mandarins go for $2-4/kg. Green and golden kiwifruit are both wonderful at $3-5/kg and $5-8/kg respectively. at $1.50-2.50 a bunch and all Chinese veggies around $1-2 a bunch. Artichokes and fennel fans can rejoice, grab one for as little as $1.

AT HOME WITH JJ Grey Frontman JJ Grey of funk/blues outfit JJ Grey & Mofro has travelled all the way from Jacksonville, Florida, to clear up some misconceptions us Inner Westies have about Southern Soul Food... Oh, and to play a gig. MELISSA Leong Please put the DSLR down, for your own good Food and the sharing of it is, by definition, a social experience. It tastes better with others and facilitates conversations, even if some of those chats aren’t always agreeable. (Hello family!) Our desire to share is so insatiable these days that we feel the need to do so with people who aren’t even seated at our table. And so Instagram and their cohorts have become platforms to show the world what we eat for every meal…and then some. This obsession with sharing, however, has the ironic side effect of alienating those we are actually eating with. A few days ago, a friend and veteran waiter posted a photo of a new restaurant she’s started working at. It depicted two people shooting dishes of food, one dish on the ground and the other on a chair by a window. If you didn’t know it, you would think Broadsheet or Concrete Playground were in to shoot the dishes for a story, but as it turns out, it happened to be a couple of food bloggers who had come in for lunch. Now, I cast no aspersions on the past-time of blogging; I dabbled in that pond before finding my words in print rather than online. Blogging is a wonderful way of sharing your thoughts and ideas with likeminded people, but where it goes a bit pear-shaped is the scene illustrated above. In the old (i.e. pre-social media) days, you’d go to dinner with some friends and look them in the eye when discussing the confit de canard. You did not get up with your plate of food and PUT IT ON THE FLOOR to snap off a few frames and then sit back down to a dish of cold food you plan to wax lyrical about later. I mean, who are you kidding? I do this for a living and even I don’t do that with food I actually plan to eat. There’s a school of thought that says, “You bought it, you own it”, and so if you wish to take pictures of your food before you eat it, then go right ahead. There is also something to be said about respect for your dining companions, not to mention your waiters and every other diner you are subjecting to your slightly odd and obsessive behaviour. So, consider this: sharing may be a way of connecting with people who love the same things as you, but at what expense? If it’s at the sake of friendship and hot food, perhaps it’s time to put the DSLR away and pick up a fork… or consider a new profession if such a past-time is your greatest passion. What did your diet consist of as a child living in America’s South? We ate a lot more out of our own garden back then. We also butchered a dozen or so chickens, one cow and two hogs a year. That said, meat was the smallest portion on the plate. People always think everything is fried in the South and a lot of it is, but not always. It also definitely depends on where you are in the South. The further south you go, the more there will be a West Indian influence in the spices and general amount of heat in the food. What spice could you not live without? Cayenne pepper and Trinidadian sauce. What don’t Sydney-siders know about Southern food? Y’all only have BBQ food. It’s Southern and it’s great but there’s a whole other side to Southern food. There’s all the veggies like greens, snap peas, silver queen corn, okra, butter beans and there’s all the goodies like hot peppered jelly (for the greens), hot sauces and spices. In your travels, where has the food culture really inspired you? I love Trinidadian food! It’s a lot like 12 Good ole boys Southern food where I’m from but with a lot more East Indian spices! Are you into the whole organic thing? What are your food ethics? My family and I pretty much only eat organic; we call it plain old normal food. Don’t even get me started on the giant chemical company that’s steadily been trying to corner the world food market through gene work! They’re playing with fire at all of our expense. What is the perfect meal to have whilst listening to Mofro’s music? Fried shrimp or catfish with hush puppies (fried balls of corn bread), cheese grits and baked beans! Another Southern classic! What have your food experiences in Australia been like? I had one meal in Ballina that sticks out on my all-time favourites list. It was a seafood joint and I had this lobster-looking thing that y’all called a “bug”. It was incredible! Hope to score that again at some point! Ho Cake This is a kind of cornbread made like a pancake. You can eat it with sweet syrup or jam, or serve as a side to a savoury dish like gumbo. Ingredients • 1 cup of meal • 2 tbsp flour • 1 egg • 1 tsp sugar • 1 cup buttermilk Method Heat frying pan with grease. Now cook on top of stove on a low heat then flip and brown the other side. n You can hear JJ Grey & Mofro song Ho Cake, all about JJ’s Granny cooking it up, on the band’s YouTube channel. JJ Grey & Mofro are playing at The Factory Theatre in Marrickville on Thursday October 8th, tickets available at: www.factorytheatre.com.au.
