Chervil

CHERVIL

Chervil is a feathery, fern-like herb and a member of the carrot family, Umbelliferae. This family of herbs is classified by aromatic plants with hallow stems. Chervil clearly qualifies as a sensory herb with aromatics of anise and parsley with equivalent nuances of flavors that warm the palate. Once chervil plants mature, they produce small, white, edible flowers that resemble the shape of an umbrella

The herb pairs well with eggs, fish, asparagus, potatoes, light sauces and vinegar based-sauces. Process fresh chervil with garlic, pecorino, toasted pine and olive oil into pesto and toss with hot pasta. Blanche diced potatoes and dress them with vinaigrette while warm, cool to room temperature and toss with chopped chervil. Add minced chervil and shallots to olive oil and vinegar, then whisk to combine and toss with baby lettuce, asparagus and almonds. Chervil will keep, dry and refrigerated, for up to a week.
