Core cabbage and place it in a soup pot full of simmering water, core end down. Cover and cook until cabbage leaves pull off easily and are supple enough to roll without breaking. Then remove head of cabbage, drain well in a colander and set aside. In a heavy skillet, cook onions and garlic in margarine over medium heat for several minutes until onions become translucent. Add celery, salt and all seasonings except lemon juice. Cover and cook over medium-low heat, stirring intermittently for 10-15 minutes, or until celery is very tender and everything is well mingled. Meanwhile, transfer corn bread to a large bowl. Add the sauté mixture to corn bread. Add lemon juice and mix thoroughly. To assemble, break off cabbage leaves one at a time. Place about 3 Tbsp of stuffing at the core end and roll toward the tip, tucking in the sides. Arrange cabbage rolls in a 9- by 13-inch baking pan in rows, touching. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and then make sauce. For sauce, heat milk just to boiling point. Remove from heat and set aside. In a large, heavy skillet, sauté mushrooms in butter or margarine over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add brandy or sherry and continue to cook for about 5 more minutes.

Gradually sprinkle in the flour and mix it into the mushrooms with a wire whisk. Keep whisking and cooking another 5 minutes. Be sure the heat is not too high. Stir in hot milk. Cook over low heat, stirring intermittently until smooth and thickened, about 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, and remove from heat. Ladle half the sauce over the rolls. Cover pan with foil and bake for about 40 minutes, or until rolls are heated through and sauce is bubbly. Ladle extra sauce onto each serving. Serve hot.

Yield: 16 rolls
