Traditionally used in French cooking, chervil is considered to be one of the four traditional French fines herbes, along with tarragon, chives, and parsley, which are essential to French cooking. The leaves impart a subtle anise-like flavor when added to eggs, vegetable and fish dishes. Chervil's taste is perhaps best described as a toned-down, fine and delicate version of a cross between tarragon and parsley with just a teeny tiny back-note hint of a bit of anise or mint, without either of those flavors really coming through too much. 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. It is often hard to find in most stores and is generally only available at specialty stores or farmers' markets.
Sow direct when weather is settled but still cool. Plant in filtered sun or light shade in hot climates. Sow seeds 1 to 2 inches apart in a well-worked fertile seed bed. Cover very lightly and keep evenly moist while awaiting germination. Likes rich, moist soil. Thin early and keep well weeded and watered. Harvest leaves sparingly once plants have 8 to 10 leaves. Use leaves fresh. Grows well indoors as well in windowsill planters.
