Legendary Indian chef and food writer Madhur Jaffrey once said that lemongrass is one of the aromatic seasonings that gives Sri Lankan cuisine its “special je ne sais quois.” Our lemongrass comes from Matale in the island nation’s central highlands, where two brothers from a multi-generational farming family harvest the stiff stems in the early morning so that drying can take place under the full strength of the tropical sun. Dried lemongrass is then ground in small batches, on-demand, to preserve the potency of its gingery, floral flavor.
