Cat’s tale continues

The Cat Empire mark 20 years of ska, jazz and other far-flung influences with a new LP on the way. The band chats ahead of its sell-out show in Castlemaine.


WINTER PLEASER

Bread and butter pudding, yes please!
Here’s a recipe your grandmother probably cooked. It’s stood the test of time, and for good reason too. There’s no better excuse to let the bread go stale than to save it up for this crowd-pleasing pud. Perfect for winter dinner parties, it’s cheap and cheerful and will feed an army. Then again, leftovers are oh so sweet. Bread and butter pudding for breakfast anyone? The raw ingredients qualify, so why not the hero dish? Delish.


THE ITALIAN JOB

When Fabrizio Soncin started kicking a soccer ball for fun as a young kid little did he know that it was the beginning of a life-long passion with the beautiful game.


Lessons In Life

Seven years ago Golden Square local Peter Thompson answered a call to help Buddhist monk and Karen refugee Ashin Moonieinda with his English skills. This year they celebrate Moonie’s completion of a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Community Development.

Pushing boundaries

Lisa is one of only a few females officiating at a senior level in cricket. Juggling her career and the sport she loves has proven tricky but she’s more than a match for the challenge.


Giddy up girls

When you weigh less than 48kg in your socks, and balance and steer a 600kg juggernaut over speeds matched only by a motor-driven machine, you can’t be too precious. It takes courage, strength and a determination that most of us can only hope for.
