About This Food

Description

Chervil is a light-green, lacey, fern-like leaf of Annthriscus cerefolium, a low-growing member of the Umbelliferae, or parsley family.

Chervil is grown in California and New Mexico and is one of the classic components of the popular French herb blend, fines herbes. The leaves of this aromatic and sweet herb bear a slight resemblance to parsley; however, the flavor is more distinctive with a trace of anise.

Crush chervil in your hand or with a mortar and pestle before use.

Selecting & Storing

Store fresh chervil, loosely wrapped in the crisper of your refrigerator. Store dry chervil in a cool, dark, dry place.
