Chervil

         
 
2 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
(Anthriscus cerefolium) Traditionally used in French cooking, where the slightly anise-like flavor of the leaves is appreciated when added to eggs, vegetable and fish dishes. Leaves are added at the very last minute of cooking, to preserve the delicate flavor. Small white flowers atop 15-20 inch stems. Also known as French parsley.

Review:

I wish chervil were as easy to find on American farmer's market or grocery store shelves as it is in France, but since it isn't, boy am I relieved that Baker Creek carries the seeds every year. I try to keep a generous supply going because it, along with cilantro and shallots, bring together my weekly salad dressing into a perfect blend (something's always missing in the winter when I don't have my chervil around). Parsley and fennel/dill/tarragon can kind of substitute, but there's really nothing like chervil. If you enjoy using light dashes of the "anisey" herbs (tarragon, dill, fennel, basil), you're going to flip out over chervil. It takes longer to bolt than cilantro but does eventually bolt (unlike first-year parsley) -- more like dill in lifespan. It self-seeds somewhat reliably if you let it mature -- less weedily than dill, but more reliably within a single season than cilantro. I buy seeds annually because I want a lot fast so I can cook with generous portions.

Review:

Great herb, used as a substitute for parsley as I looked the taste as well as my family and friends. Soil conditions were not tested so no comment. I noticed that it did seem to spread a little, but that may be because of how it was planted. Will be planting again, grown in herb garden surrounded by sage and basil
