Around the new year I get nostalgic, especially for my Oma's cooking. She lived in a rent controlled apartment building along with many of her life-long friends for over 50 years. The whole building always smelt of cooking and mostly cabbage.
Stuffed cabbage rolls where my favourite. She never past on a recipe, and it's been many years since I have had them. Since grains don't do so well with my digestion I have substituted carrots for the rice, and everything else is fairly traditional about the recipe. —Sandra Ramacher
