haha, no! It came up on top under the discussions section. maybe there isn't enough happening so that angloinfo recycles old posts? Still the same problem: people looking for lemongrass ;-)

I saw some at the local E.Leclerc supermarket the other day, in a pack of 4 or 5. It's a standard product at supermarkets, especially the big ones.

Happy cooking, sounds delicious!

Nikki just saw this exchange So you are in the VAR and cooking with Lemon Grass? ..I too am in the VAR, near the village of Le Beausset and sometimes cook with lemongrass too....AND you even speak English perhaps we have the minimilist expat-type underpinings of a Hello coffee? My mom was born in Korea, raised in Japan by German expats that perviously lived in Omsk Russia for five generations...She married an Irish-Texan when living in Bavaria and cooking was the way she showed love...and such GREAT international food too!Deborah Lee Marlow04.94.32.87.2106.22.08.51.21Marlow@tiscali.fr

I'm not a great cooker but it looks like we do have "citronnelle en poudre" in France so that's what you should look for. (I've checked on French Cuisine websites)

Further research has told me that in fact the word 'citronelle' is used in French to describe almost anything that smells of lemon.  Apparently to be more precise lemongrass would translate as 'batons de citronelle' - don't really want to end up with mosquito repellent in my wok!

Take care, "citronnelle" is also a repellent for mosquitoes and this is the most common sense we use here...

Am indeed in the Var and very grateful for all your help. 

No new challenges yet, but I'm working on it!

Nikki, You could try the market or some of the places on this page.

Assuming, of course, that you are in Toulon in the Var and not Toulon, Illinois.

keep the challenges coming ;-)
