    Cook's tips

    Before you start, soak the lemon grass in water for 10–15 minutes then crush it well to make it softer and easier to shred. Use tenderstem broccoli or shredded Savoy cabbage as an alternative to kale.

    Drinks recommendation

    Lemon grass and Thai flavours are wonderful with Viognier. This wine also has bright Sauvignon to pep up the blend: Doña Dominga Reserva Sauvignon Blanc/Viognier, Colchagua Valley, Chile.
