With the nationwide launch of Lemon Grass Kitchen™, shoppers can now find flavorful, better-for-you Southeast Asian cuisine in the frozen aisle. Mai Pham, chef and founder of the award-winning Lemon Grass and Star Ginger restaurants in Northern California, created a line of authentic recipes using premium ingredients to deliver the bold flavors of Thailand, Vietnam and Korea to kitchens everywhere.

The cuisines of Southeast Asia are growing increasingly popular with restaurant-goers across the country, and Chef Pham’s Lemon Grass Kitchen creations, developed in an exclusive partnership with InnovAsian Cuisine®, allow diners to enjoy their favorite dishes at home.

“My family fled Saigon in 1975, and the culture and cuisine we brought with us is the inspiration behind my restaurants, cookbooks, and now, Lemon Grass Kitchen entrées,” said Chef Mai Pham, Lemon Grass Kitchen Culinary Director. “My life-long passion is to share the fabulous Asian flavors that I grew up loving. We prepare these frozen meals the same way we cook at home or in the restaurants – with love, passion and great care.”

Traditional ingredients such as lemongrass, tamarind, cilantro, Thai basil, fish sauce, ginger and gochujang are used to create the bold flavors of the six Lemon Grass Kitchen dishes:
