Online Cooking Class - Tumami Spices Lemongrass Chicken

Online Cooking Class - Tumami Spices Lemongrass Chicken


South West Vietnam [or referred to as “Miền Tây”] contains small populous provinces in the Mekong Delta. Mekong Delta is a river that runs through Western China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, and last Vietnam before ending its river’s journey in the South China Sea. Historically, Miền Tây was the pinnacle of the east of the Silk Road. Naturally, the abundance of foreign (and exotic) ingredients is reflected in the region’s dishes. 

And eventually,  those myriad ingredients came together to create Lemongrass Chicken, one of Vietnam’s many national dishes. 

This is Chef Tu’s version. Learn how to roast a whole chicken, spiced with lemongrass. And expertly seasoned with artisanal fish sauce.

Why I love to make this at home

  • Honestly, chicken is pretty boring. Here’s a great recipe to bring excitement back to your weekly chicken dinners. 

  • It’s low cost and easy recipe to make for big dinner parties and/or families

  • I use this same marinade for Turkey during Thanksgiving. AND IT’S AMAZING!
