July Herb of the Month: Chervil

This delicious herb is a mainstay of french cuisine and is one of the herbs in mix of fines herbes that is so important in French haute cuisine.

The delicate flavour of chervil has a faint taste of aniseed and is delicious with eggs, seafood (especially scallops), chicken and when added as a garnish to soups, stews and sauces. For best results and a full flavour add last minute to your dish.
