Rolled With Love

My girl Sarra has been hosting a few dinner over the past few months. The idea is good friends, good food, and good fun. We gather a few friends together, stay in, save money and enjoy time together over bottles of wine and wonderful homemade food. Sarra, who loves to cook, is half Palestinian and shared her grandmother's recipe with us this week, Stuffed Grape Leaves (Warak enab mehshi). These grapes leaves are very different than the Greek Dolmas and are served as the main dish because they contain meat. They are carefully wrapped by hand (taking up to 2 hours apparently) and filled with ground beef. She also served up labne, hummus, pita and a lovely arabic salad... it was amazing! I've been dreaming of these little rolls for days now.
