Chervil, also known as garden chervil and French parsley, is popular in French and German cuisines. Although the flavor and aroma is much more intense when fresh, the dried herb is an ingredient in the French seasoning blends bouquet garni and herbes de Provence. In Germany, chervil is combined with borage, burnet, parsley, chives, cress and sorrel to make a green sauce for roasted meats and vegetables. Because this sauce originated in Frankfurt, it is called Frankfurter Grüne Sauce and is locally known as grie soß.

Background: Chervil appears in ancient literature as a symbol of new life. Similar in aroma and taste to myrrh, it has the blended flavors of anise and parsley. In French kitchens, it is often the unidentifiable spice of fish recipes. 

Description: A hardy annual plant, Chervil has light green, fern-like opposing leaves supported by round, grooved stems. The slender white root produces plants reaching 26 inches in height. Tiny white flowers bloom from spring through mid-summer. The Chervil fruit or seeds ripen in late summer to early fall and have a long, thin, segmented appearance.
