Market report: Thai lemon basil

Hosted by

With its uniquely bright and fragrant lemon scent, Thai lemon basil has no substitute in Thai cooking, and yet it can be difficult to track down. Lucky for Angelenos, it can be found at the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market. Laura Avery talks about its uses with Zach Hamel, chef de cuisine of Kasih in Little Tokyo, while John Her of Her Farms in Fresno explains how it’s grown.
