There seem to be so many food-related events happening over the next few months that it's hard to keep up with them all.

The next one to plonk into your diary is Paniyiri. Paniyiri is one of my favourite Brisbane festivals, and I always try to get along every year. Its a great way to spend a lunch or afternoon - munching on some great Greek food, with some kind of music or dancing going on in the background. I think the other reason I love going along is because it reminds me of the fantastic time we had in Greece, especially the amazing food and friendly, welcoming people.

If you haven't been before, make sure you get along this year. Buy yourself some Greek wine or beer, and then graze on dolmades, grilled octopus, calamari, haloumi, souvlaki and loukoumades. Last year there were even a few sideshow alley type rides, for those with iron stomachs.

The Greek Club's website hasn't been updated yet with the information for this year's Paniyiri, but hopefully that will happen soon. In the meantime, there's a few details here, on
