Lemongrass is absolute staple in Thai cuisine, so I made a video to hopefully answer all your questions about it! Here you'll find info on everything from what it is, how to use it, how to store it and what your options are if you cannot find fresh lemongrass.

H Pai, I love your site and recipes!
I live in Dublin, Ireland. I used to cook a decent enough Tom Yum but... in my last attempts I am getting no flavour/aroma from the lemongrass and galangaI at all, which means that it does not taste like a Tom Yum anymore
I buy both from the Chinese supermarkets I have access to. Not sure what has changed in the delivery from Thailand
In this case, would it be best to buy it frozen? I assume they would freeze them straight after harvesting?
