Chervil
(Anthriscus cerefolium)

With an abundance of uses, chervil is a mist of any culinary or medicinal herb garden. It is considered one of the 'fines herbes' of French cooking (along with chives, tarragon and parsley.) Chervil leaves are perfect mixed with salads, sprinkled on fish or meat, added to cold drinks such as tomato and fruit juices, blended with cottage cheese and in omelets. It's a pretty addition to flower arrangements and can be grown in containers in the winter. Prefers a shady, cool location.
