Chervil is an annual herb similar to parsley in appearance, but with a more delicate, lacy leaf structure and slight anise aroma. It is a staple in the French kitchen and is often called “the gourmet’s parsley. Due to its delicate aroma, chervil is hardly the main herb flavor of a dish, often being combined with tarragon, parsley and chives to create the traditional French fines herbes blend. It is often added to salads, sauces, and vinaigrettes, and traditionally paired with salmon, trout, potatoes, spinach, asparagus and green beans. It is best to add chervil just before a dish is removed from the heat or just after, since it won’t stand long cooking times. Naturally vegan and gluten-free.
