inner west whispers local gossip rumour hearsay and unsubstantiated fact it s been an exciting week in politics what will happen next l superior tactician anthony albanese is even closer to the top job not that he wants it our man albo as deputy pm can pave the way for that second airport we inner westies so desperately need and help out those poor land developers who bought near badgerys creek we re not sure if even a new parramatta rd or a second airport will be enough to save his party but at least he will be spared from the upcoming carnage his fellow contestants cedric spencer lib and hall greenland grn must be cursing ­ their election campaigns will struggle against the national tv coverage that will no doubt be afforded our new deputy pm l in case you didn t know leichhardt mayor darcy byrne works at anthony s office and is the perfect protégé if albo teaches darcy everything he knows well look out l at the time of print member for sydney tanya plibersek had not resigned thankfully one of the more sensible voices of the team has decided to battle on 2013 liberal candidate sean o connor who is waving the same sex marriage flag yes and he s a lib will have to campaign very hard to get any oxygen in what will probably be a plibersek victory l more staff changes at ashfield council must have the staff pouting their bottom lips after a range of job share programs temporary and contract positions falling by the wayside it is no wonder one of our most underfunded councils are struggling with defending their footpath policy and their street art policy think summer hill rainbow hosed away it is to their credit that they have managed to deliver a budget surplus for the year ahead kind of l don lorenzos italian trattoria on parramatta road in stanmore has closed after 40 years of trading we are c!ao i m right you re wrong righteous rightie ponders the now ex pm doth protesting too much when the subject of gay hairdressers raises its well-coiffed head dear rr ­ are you as appalled as i am by the sacking of howard sattler for daring to speak truth to power piers paddington rr replies i have indeed reached new heights of apoplexy over this disgraceful affair piers everyone knows that any man who chooses hairdressing acting or let s face it anything vaguely creative as a career is unarguably what my dear late father used to call a deadset horse s hoof and it goes without saying that any woman who wants to be prime minister instead of concentrating on finding then pleasing a husband is some kind of pervert let s just say it wouldn t come as a complete surprise to me if julia and christine milne get together to listen to the indigo girls and watch wentworth if you catch my drift so timmy can freeload his way into as many testosterone-sodden sporting events as he likes and julia can knit as many cutesy kangaroo jumpers as she likes but they are not pulling the wool over the australian public s eyes as the shamefully maligned cory bernardi keeps pointing out progressives are all for marrying those of the same gender or even of a different species so why all the confected outrage about asking the then prime minister of this nation to confirm or deny if she s involved in a sham relationship with a shirtlifter if anything those communists in the canberra press gallery should be asking the producers of

community life r oad test made in marrickville marrickville s semi-industrial area has become a hot spot for bargain hunters looking for quality products direct from the source and there s plenty more on offer than just food we visited a few of the factory outlets to see what we could find factory outlet doesn t have all the antipasti items the famous haberfield store has they still stock a huge range of cheese at great prices like a 1kg bucket of buffalo bocconcini for $30 and australian fetta for $10 per kilogram rant getting the wheels spinning on leichhardt s bike lanes leichhardt mayor darcy byrne offers his take on the bike lane debate that has fired up in leichhardt recently this month i learned that some cycling advocates have tunnel vision leichhardt council has adopted a budget that will deliver 30 minutes free parking in our main streets two new childcare centres eight playground upgrades and a new community bus available for older residents overwhelmingly local residents will welcome these long awaited investments but for bob moore the dour but committed president of leichhardt bicycle users group they were a step backwards in recent years council allocated much more money to building bike lanes than it was actually capable of spending so much so that last year there was $600,000 of ratepayers money that sat idle in the bank a majority of councillors shared my view that we could not afford to waste money in this way and decided to reallocate $400,000 of this unused cash to upgrading playgrounds and repairing roads everyone loves a bargain whether it be cheap eats or discounted services and one of the best places to find them locally is in the unofficial wholesalers district that seems to have emerged in marrickville r&s danube smallgoods 41-45 sydenham road these guys specialise in smoking things if you re after smoked pork ham beef chorizo or even kransky and knackwurst sausages they ve got it all with the brands they stock including the burgomaster byers and the blackforest smokehouse danube moved from erskineville to marrickville in 2008 but they have been around since the early `90s and import their own smoking wood chips all the way from germany at their factory outlet store all their products ­ such as their award-winning blackforest new york rare roast beef ­ are available at factory direct prices the art framing company 77-79 sydenham road jeremy and paula from the pasta factory a perfect example of the great non-food related businesses in the pasta factory marrickville the art framing company are 17 buckley street wholesale framers that will accept jobs of any my favourite stop on my mini-tour of marrickville proportions whether you re just a member of wholesalers was the pasta factory aside from all the public or a business hotel or gallery they do the brilliant pasta and pasta sauces they also everything from custom framing to laminating make frozen soups pizza crusts and antipasti printing canvas stretching or hanging work not only dry pasta either you can get frozen sydney rams homemade lasagna vegetarian or beef and 38-40 sydenham road quality `heat eat pasta meals with penne and as the winter weather sets in we all reach for our ravioli plus they stock italian biscuits just like furry slippers which is where this factory outlet nonna used to make duccio gelato nuts and comes in very handy they have discounted jams ­ just to name a few things this place is ugg boots on sale for almost half price in all a must-visit on the marrickville map sorts of styles and colours not to mention

that have been passed down for hundreds of years today their brand is stocked in shops all over the inner west and they are considered experts when it comes to cheese while their marrickville leichhardt is spending more per capita on bike lanes than just about any other council in australia but for mr moore and his most ideological supporters this is not nearly enough despite the fact that more than $4 million is still locked in for cycling infrastructure over the next ten years including $600,000 this year mr moore and the greens party councillors at leichhardt advocated that the playground and roads funding be withdrawn leichhardt is spending more per capita on bike lanes than just about any other council in australia but for mr moore and his most ideological supporters this is not nearly enough i have tried to suggest to cycling advocates that i think it is important that they put some energy into lobbying the dozens of sydney councils who currently spend next to nothing on bike lanes as well as supporting leichhardt s ongoing investment i had always thought that people s wariness of hard-core cyclists was based on their understandable dislike of middle aged men in spandex but if bike advocates want to include opposition to kids playgrounds as part of their agenda their legion of opponents is about to get a lot bigger n words darcy byrne mayor of leichhardt n if

n feature the business of owning your own business having experienced plenty of his own highs and lows jared ingersoll is uniquely placed to rate running a food business in the inner west i was asked to write an article about what it meant to be a business owner in the inner west and in the food industry ok sure but what angle do i take harsh with brutal reality warts and all or do i gild the lily and focus only on the positive i might start by breaking it down into separate parts being a business owner a small business owner is someone who works 60 hours a week in order to only work 20 hours some day this saying pretty much sums up the lifestyle of most small business owners thankfully it is not always the case but i dare say that most self-employed people who sell you flowers petrol clothes and food clean your house or fix your pipes would agree that it requires a lot of effort to get through a simple day unless you employ just one person and that person is yourself you are always going to be dealing with unforeseen problems and expenses most likely even if you are not your sole employee you will have to learn a multitude of skills in order to be able to do your own marketing book keeping plumbing and general handyman work not to mention brokering deals and controlling neverending crises in fact this very article was sent to ciao a day late because i had to completely re-write it after making a reference to a business deal that was perfectly fine a couple of weeks ago then came close to disaster yesterday and is back to life today it s not that these little challenges are necessarily bad for business often they actually turn out well but they can be incredibly stressful and all-consuming living and eating in the inner west inner westies rock there i said it stated my claim and i m backing it when i first got to australia i lived in paddington and over the years i have slowly moved further west until finally landing in marrickville why you ask because it is so beautifully diverse here the food is fantastic restaurants are un-fussy excellent and usually awesome value i love the fact that the coffee is starting to get pretty serious too cafés have gone up a notch with places like double roasters and the cornersmith going strong i love that my neighbourhood is full of just about every accent other than true blue aussie nothing against australian-born people i m married to one and my sons are one of you lot too but there is something rich and beautiful about the cultural diversity that i get to experience in the inner west furthermore i enjoy the fact that there is but a scant handful of hipsters when i walk down marrickville road and that i am not confronted by shirtless bronze-bodied beautiful actors like i would be in bondi and the backpackers i encounter are also slightly more sober than those you would normally find in coogee i love the fact that the inner west enjoys more than one easter i also love the fact that my greek neighbours cook a killer lamb on a spit my vietnamese neighbours have an awesome garden full of flavour and spice and my english neighbours are so very very quiet all in all it s a top place to reside and bring up kids but please don t tell too many people ­ we don t want it to become unnecessarily gentrified now do we 6 the food industry working in the food industry is hard i am a chef by trade it is my career and i know more about it than i do anything else i have worked in a multitude of kitchens all over the world for the last 27 years i have published three books received many awards and accolades and have even done the tv thing on and off for years i have also consulted for industry on numerous occasions worked with farmers primary producers scientists non-government organisations and governments and the one thing i know to be an absolute truth is that making a career in food is really hard actually the only thing that is harder than making a career for yourself in the food industry is if you want to be a chef and own your own restaurant the chances of making a decent living are extremely low you will spend all of your time working when others are not and when others are working you will be trying to catch up on odd jobs and patch together some form of home life or social life and that is only if you can be bothered getting off the sofa given how exhausted you will be no one will really understand the pressures you face nor will they appreciate the fact that you swear like a tourettes sufferer and find conversations not about food a complete waste of time in fact when you strip it all down and have a look at it it is a job for mad people with no obvious desire to ever embrace normality being a business owner living in the inner west and being in the food industry worth every moment so now i look at the whole considering the question of what it means to be a inner west food business owner and i realise that i am so very fortunate to live where i live so very proud to run my own business and so very blessed to be able to pursue my greatest passion ­ cooking i don t regret any of the difficulty my decisions may have caused because i now know what it means to be able to stand by what i believe in and make my own way in the world my life in the inner west is enriched by a diversity of culture diet and thinking i don t regret one minute of living here or my 27 years of feeding people n words jared ingersoll marrickville resident and the former owner and head chef of danks street depot.

virtuous about your sweet tooth then here s a gluten free refined-sugar-free chocolate brownie recipe for you amp it up with salted dulce de leche kitchen with melissa leong wine with winsor hunter star andrew thomas 2011 sweetwater shiraz there is no argument that andrew thomas is one of the most talented winemakers in the hunter ­ and his individual vineyard wines are of stellar quality the

fillet would be perfect 3 brown onions 6 ripe tomatoes mouth-watering meat andre is the owner of popular leichhardt restaurant braza churrascaria which was the first restaurant to introduce the true concept of brazilian `churrasco barbecue to the inner west what makes brazilian barbecues different from your typical aussie barbie this is quite a tricky question because both in brazil and also here in australia the barbecue is actually a celebration an event with family and friends a get-together to have a few extra drinks and sort of an `excuse for partying the main difference comes down to the cooking method and style and also to the actual cuts of meat in australia the barbecue is mostly done on gas barbecues and basically served as a meal in brazil we only use charcoal barbecues and the meats are served all day long i have actually been to barbecues in brazil that lasted for more than 10 hours which ingredients are essential in a brazilian kitchen definitely rice and beans they are the base of any brazilian meal what s your philosophy when it comes to food and cooking food for me is all about combining the right ingredients to create the right flavours i like to call braza a fine food restaurant simple honest when it comes to cooking i have several different cooking methods but i have to say that my favourite ­ and the one that gives me the most pleasure ­ is to cook a nice piece of meat over a charcoal barbecue and if you are vegetarian veggies do go very well on charcoal too the flavours that you get out of it are simply the best what kitchen utensil can t you live without my knives but i have to mention that a kitchen without tongs is nothing if you could invite anyone over for dinner whom would you invite probably the brazilian president so i could maybe teach her a lesson 8 saucy baked fish fillets with white rice as i eat a lot of meat in the restaurant i tend to cook more fishy dishes at home ­ this is a very simple but very tasty dish which can have many different variations as well you just need to use your imagination 1 lemon rice black pepper salt chillies optional extra virgin olive oil vegetable oil jared on being green local seasonal and sustainable ­ it s true that just one of these words alone carries weight when it comes to discussions about ethical food and eating but they can each have a raft of interpretations separately and without consideration they fall well short of any real environmentally-friendly meaning and miss the point and i for one am tired of all the misinformation and half-hearted claims businesses make about selling ethical sustainable or organic products for example if you only sell `ethical meat but don t care about the local seafood industry then what difference are you actually making or if you shamelessly sell and promote a respected ethical brand while actually selling another ­ how is that not fraud if a restaurant sells organic produce but also stocks imported bottled mineral water what are they trying to communicate claims like `all organic food tastes better no it doesn t how can excellent food grown harmoniously within its ecosystem taste bad because it does not have official organic certification then there are those who claim that eating meat is unethical and unsustainable without a care or understanding about those educated and skilled farmers whose husbandry and farm management play a crucial part in a bio-diverse eco system don t get me wrong i believe the local and global food environment to be a lot more conscious of their impact than ever before and i celebrate everyone s efforts it s truly an exciting time and we have certainly come a long way but i would caution those who make claims without being able to be offer transparency to instead concentrate on this issue transparency carries so much more weight than sensational claims so be straight up with customers stand by your claims but also be prepared to change your opinion when necessary recently i heard a very powerful phrase which i will now pass on to you dear readers it s not about having all the answers it s about being a part of the process eat well n jared ingersoll www.danksstreetdepot.com.au 1 red capsicum 1 green and 1 yellow 1 tblsp chopped parsley 6 garlic cloves method 1 slice 2 ½ onions roughly chop tomatoes cut all capsicums length ways heat up a medium-sized pot so you can fit all veggies in add vegetable oil wait until it s nice and hot then add onions tomatoes and capsicums put the lid on turn it down to medium heat and stir every now and then 2 pre-heat oven to 200 degrees while the veggies are cooking place the fish on a baking tray squeeze the lemon on top if the lemon is very juicy just use half crack some black pepper on top as well 3 when the mix of veggies becomes more saucy add 4 chopped garlic cloves the chopped parsley and the salt usually a teaspoon is more than enough cook for another 5 minutes you can add chillies if you want at this point as well 4 cover the fish with the sauce sprinkle the olive oil on top and put it in the oven for about 20 minutes or until it starts blackening the tips of the capsicums 5 for the rice add cooking oil in a pan with remaining ½ diced onion and 2 chopped garlic cloves let it fry a little always mixing so it doesn t burn and then add 2 cups of rice fry a little more mixing the rice constantly when it starts to stick to the bottom of the pan add 4 cups of water and salt turn down the heat cover and it s ready when all the water is absorbed by the rice around 15 minutes be careful not to burn the bottom a nice variation for this dish is to add some coconut cream with the veggie mix it gives it a great tropical touch n more information at www.braza.com.au.

sustainability n local news healthy food is a human right governments and corporations argue that genetically modified food is necessary to feed the hungry masses but food rights provide a better solution all over the world we are now hearing the call for clean drinking water to be a basic human right which is vital we also regularly hear talk of new water wells in africa water pollution and all these very important topics in media yet the question begs to be asked if water is very clearly a human right then why not healthy food and if healthy food is a right what about the right to farm on land without being indebted to multinational companies like monsanto internationally farmers who have farmed family land for hundreds of years are being taken over and forced into debt and adopting modern agricultural methods in this process we see a huge number of farmers committing suicide and at the same time we see people starving i can see no bigger question in relation to food if food is a human right then certainly the right to grow it must be as well the public discussion never seems to go into food as a right all that s discussed is the push for mass growth of crops like wheat soy and corn that will grow anywhere due to bio-engineering recently however i spent a bit of time talking to an old friend about gm foods water rights and a bunch of other nerdy food things the discussion hinged on the idea of food as a right and more importantly what kind of food what do we want food rights on one side you have a group of ngos politicians and governments pushing gm crops to create a world without hunger on the other side you have people talking about small scale sustainable organic farming being the answer to the world s problems but these arguments do not even address the problem of the reason for hunger in the first place which is distribution not quantity it s time we asked ourselves if the the problem is actually a food shortage or is it more likely poor distribution once this is discussed the talk around gm foods may not even be necessary furthermore if we begin to see that not just food but the right to grow clean safe healthy food is a human right we would get to the bottom of the problem much faster while there does not seem to be a whole lot of discussion around this the fine folks at the australian food sovereignty alliance are consistently

s e x dat ingand re l at io ns h ip s amore spicy inner west ciao asks inner westies answer what do you think about the increase in women getting surgery on their genitals for cosmetic reasons has the appearance of someone s genitals ever effected your romantic relationship with them i would never get surgery myself and no i m happy to say that i ve never seen something so bad it s turned me off anne drummoyne apparently some women have a really long labia which can be very uncomfortable so i think getting surgery is ok if that was the case lydia annandale i think all these women getting surgery on their genitals is quite sad and unnecessary ­ personally i ve never met a vagina i didn t like and i don t know many other men that have either joel croydon the mound of venus man i can t criticise these women because if i had a complex about my vagina i would have surgery if it makes you feel more confident then why not we need to solve the problem of why women are feeling this way in the first place at least surgery offers a solution for them as for male genitals i haven t seen a grossly ugly penis that affected my relationship i think the bigger issue amongst men is size not physical appearance frankly a small penis is a turn off for a lot of women jess five dock male and female genitalia aren t exactly `pretty by nature we should just appreciate that and not waste time worrying about such superficial things i have never broken up with someone because of the appearance of their genitals alex five dock it s scary that women are having surgery for no real medical reason because it can be dangerous what if something goes wrong i have never had a problem with any of my partners bodies `down there jarrad darlinghurst 101 lady gardens it s a book full of close-ups of female genitalia created by a man but it s not what you might initially think with `designer vaginas all the rage philip werner is trying to celebrate the everyday variety it s not surprising that some people may be put off by the idea of a coffee table book that consists entirely of nude photos of women s private parts each of which is accompanied by a message from the model herself simply put philip werner s book 101 vagina is confronting ­ but that s exactly the point one of the most successful ways to foster discussion and acceptance especially of a taboo topic is first through shock shock forces you to think to consider the issues while this book does not intend to shock it certainly gains attention and shines light on issues that desperately need to be confronted the issue that werner wishes to address with this book is the taboo surrounding vaginas and how to demolish that taboo without sensationalising or sexualising the issue he also wants to promote the belief that all women are naturally beautiful it s a hard task in such a superficial plastic surgery addicted society but it is through discussion of these two issues that werner hopes to create an indirect knock-on effect that will open up discussion on sexual violence and continue the fight for gender equality while the intention was always to create a photo book the project started out as a website where women could post about personal experiences they ve had with their vaginas ­ whether good bad or anything in between the idea was simply to start talking and because of the anonymous nature of the internet that was the best place to start considering the shocking rise in labiaplasty often sought out by teenagers the purpose of the messages regardless of whether they were positive or negative was to demonstrate that there is no such thing as an abnormal or wrong vagina and this idea has continued in the book ranging from short `letters to their own vaginas to retellings of past traumatic events related to their private parts the contributions of the models are real while perhaps only a small step this shows that the discussion of this taboo topic is entirely possible and werner himself has demonstrated that men are capable of being part of the solution in conjunction with the release of his book werner is holding an exhibition of the photos and stories from 101 vagina as well as related work by other artists the exhibition will be held at non-profit organisation 107 projects in redfern 12pm to 5pm until sunday 30th june with a voluntary donation at the door the exhibition also coincides with the festival of the vagina ­ an exploration and celebration of the female sex organ ­ being held at the same venue on saturday 29th june n for more info visit www.101vagina.com words
