“Oh man, I don’t know which of Russel’s recipes I want to try first. I love stuffed vine leaves and these look so amazing. I’m not so much into nori and the salty soy sauce flavors, they’re ok sometimes. What I really love though is Mediterranean food. Hummus, pita, tabouli, couscous, olives, and especially dolmas! I have never come accross grape leaves though in the store, not even the canned kind. Maybe I haven’t been looking in the right isles or hard enough, or maybe you can only get them at special greek grocers or something. I would love to find the fresh organic grape vine leaves. I’ve been scouring the internet to see if there is a speciality source I can order from online. My search so far has turned out disapointing. All I can find is recipes or the canned kind. I guess you have to live near a vineyard and go beg them in the spring for their leaves. But anyways, if you can find some good vine leaves, this recipe looks worth trying." – Indulge
