Botanical Name: Anthriscus cerefolium

Chervil is an annual that grows well during the winter months here in S.E.Queensland. The plants grow to 40-70cm, with tripinnate leaves. The small white flowers form small umbels, 2.5-5cm across. The fruit is about 1cm long, oblong-ovoid with a slender, ridged beak. As the plant matures, the leaves tend to turn a purple, bronze colour.

Chervil looks like carrot tops it is lacy and delicate with a slight parsley taste and subtle anise flavour.

Use the nutritious leaves to flavour cheese, egg and fish dishes. The leaves can be sprinkled through a salad or added to a white sauce. Mix chopped leaves with a little butter to top vegetables, particularly carrots and potatoes. A staple of classic French cooking It is one of the herbs in the classic French mix - fines herbes – includes equal parts of Parsley, chervil, chives and tarragon. When a recipe calls for ‘Pluches de cerfeuille’, it is leaves of Chervil that are required. Chervil is what gives Béarnaise its distinctive taste. Much of the delicate flavour of Chervil is lost when cooked or heated to a high temperature, so it is best to add chopped Chervil at the end of cooking time or when serving the meal.

Some quick ways to use Chervil.

- Mix a handful of chopped chervil with sour cream or crème fraiche, season and serve with baked potatoes.

- Mash some chopped chervil into softened butter to serve on seafood, mushrooms or steak. Stir through vegetables such as carrots, peas, corn or baby potatoes.

- Replace basil with chervil in a pesto recipe, and use to spread on biscuits or stir through pasta.

- Mix with whole egg mayo and some Dijon mustard and spread over thinly sliced chicken before grilling.

- Mash some boiled eggs and stir through chopped chervil.

- Roughly chop or tear handfuls of chervil into salads.

Great plant selection

All my plants were healthy and strong. It's so great to be able to get herbs that are not available anywhere else.

Best way to buy herbs

I live in country NSW and was worried my herbs would be in the post too long which could damage them. No need to worry. Herbs were in great condition and have survived the transplant no problems. I could also buy exotic herbs that I can't find in the country. Hardest part is limiting myself to a monthly order. Personal, family service was really nice. Even received a handwritten thank you note.

Five star! Great plants, good packaging, appropriate information. I was really pleased with the plants and even after a few days, they seem to be doing very well. Thank you, I will come back again.
