Chervil might be a lesser-known herb for herb gardens, but it is a versatile herb that can be used in many dishes. Chervil is a delicate annual herb related to parsley. The leaves have mild flavor with hints of licorice or anise. It is said that chervil possesses a flavor of mildness and subtlety not frequently found in other herbs. Traditionally used in French cooking, chervil is used to season mild-flavored dishes. Leaves can be added to salads and light sandwiches or sprinkled on soups and stews. Chervil also goes well with eggs, fish, and potatoes. Chervil prefers a cool and moist location and should be directly sown into the garden since it doesn’t transplant well due to its long taproot.
