Cole & Mason Lemongrass
Eat our Lemongrass with a hearty fish curry. The clean, citrus taste of lemongrass pairs nicely with coconut to offset a seriously spicy curry. Simple whitefish cubes will do for the fish. Use onion, garlic and your own favourite spices to heat it up.
Why not try adding a Thai touch to simple dishes. Lemongrass is most famous for use in Thai cuisine, working alongside coconut and rice. Try using lemongrass and coconut milk to add an eastern element to a classic British rice pudding. Or use ground lemongrass in chicken mince to make burgers, with a mix of spices and chopped nuts for a bit of heat and crunch.
Lemongrass is a food of many names – it's also known as barbed wire grass, citronella grass, silky heads, fever grass and much more.
It's originally from (and most commonly associated with) Thailand, where it's used as medicine and to preserve ancient manuscripts – as well as in plenty of dishes.
Along with its citrus taste, lemongrass has a sweet, almost rose-like aroma.
