Bring the taste of the Mediterranean to your kitchen with Onassis, producers of the finest quality hand made dolmades since 1962.
According to Greek mythology, Dolmades were first served with ambrosia and nectar on Olympus, the mountain of the gods. However, history suggests that the origin of stuffed vine leaves goes back to the time when Alexander the Great besieged Thebes. With little food to eat, the Thebans cut what meat they had into little bits and rolled it in grape vine leaves; hence the birth of the now famous dolmades.
Dolmades are made from tender, young grape vine leaves and are traditionally filled with minced lamb, rice and various herbs as spices such as mint, fennel, parsley, dill and garlic, pine nuts or raisins. Meat filled Dolmades are usually served warm with yoghurt whereas non-meat varieties are served at room temperature. All Onassis Dolmades sold in Australia are vegetarian and can be enjoyed as an entree, main meal or side dish. They also make the perfect finger food for entertaining.
Onassis produces an extensive range of traditional Greek delicacies from authentic recipes handed down over many generations. Onassis Dolmades are available in three flavours: Traditional, with a special, seasoned rice filling; Rice, Tomatoes, Roasted Eggplant and Roasted Peppers or Pine Nuts and Raisins.
