Peter's Palate Pleasers

Peter Howard has Queensland’s original food and wine matching palate and is an audience favourite. So he will be again at the Granite Belt Flavours event in Little Stanley Street, South Bank from 10am to 3pm.

In a series of five free sessions at South Bank this Sunday, Peter will present classic red and white wine varieties, plus some exciting alternative varieties from the Granite Belt with food suggestions.
