According to the organizers:
Lemongrass, sometimes called citronella, is a key ingredient in many Southeast Asian dishes. The unique zesty flavor makes lemongrass a versatile ingredient for appetizers, entrees, desserts, and drinks.
In this 2-hour class, you’ll learn the best ways to prepare lemongrass for cooking, and work with other ingredients that are natural companions for this aromatic ingredient, including kaffir lime leaves, galangal, and red chilis. We’ll make a delicious dinner of:
- Thai red curry with chicken using red curry paste* that you’ll prepare in-class
- Javanese lemongrass and coconut rice
- Fresh lemongrass iced tea
*This class uses chicken and shrimp paste. Unfortunately the curry can’t be made vegetarian and we are unable to accommodate anyone with a shrimp allergy. Class is a mix of hands-on and demo.
