Chervil: The Delicate Herb with a Punch of Flavour

Wild chervil growing in a meadow with delicate green leaves

Chervil is the super early spring green, that adds subtle wild flavours to your salads or a beautiful finishing touch for special dishes. 

Suggested uses

  1. Wash well before use
  2. Best used fresh, although it can be dried or frozen
  3. Use as a substitute for parsley or tarragon in recipes

Ideas

  1. Salad: Add chervil to any green salad to add a punch of flavour. Mix it with spinach, arugula, and kale for a nutrient-packed salad.
  2. Butter: Mix finely chopped chervil with butter and spread it over toast or use it to flavour steamed vegetables or fish.
  3. Eggs: Add a handful of chopped chervil to scrambled eggs or an omelette for an added depth of flavour.
  4. Pesto: Use chervil in place of basil in your homemade pesto. Mix with garlic, parmesan cheese, and pine nuts for a twist on a classic recipe.

Chervil is a delicate herb that can bring a fresh flavour to any dish. Try it in your next recipe and see how it can enhance flavours you didn't know where there.
