This dish comes from the area around Trieste. It originated in neighbouring Yugoslavia, where stuffed cabbage leaf recipes are popular. There are many variations on the basic theme. Here is my favourite - it’s very easy to make and might even persuade your children to eat cabbage! The important thing is to start off with a very fresh, green, crisp Savoy. Mashed potatoes, red cabbage and sautéed mushrooms are nice with this.
