Vine Leaves (Dolmades)

The video shows the preparation of stuffed vine leaves with rice (dolmades).

The film made in 1993 and there is no voice over only music.  In the initial stages it shows you the list of ingredients, the proper method of wrapping and the plate to cover the dolmades before cooking.  This is important to keep the leaves from unwrapping.

For more details on the preparation of dolmades, read the book written by Spyros Peter Goudas in the Books and Articles Section.

It certainly seems like a lot of work, but if you enjoy cooking, you will find that it is also quite creative, entertaining, and according to Mr. Goudas, quite relaxing after a hard day at the office. In fact, even executives, lawyers, or business owners, who undergo lots of stress everyday, will find making these treats as a therapeutic retreat from the busy business world.
