Chervil is a member of the parsley family and has a mild flavour with hints of liquorice or anise. In appearance, it resembles flat-leaf parsley, with fine, dissected leaves that are a pale green colour. 


Culinary Uses

Chervil is one of the herbs used to make fines herbes (the others are parsley, tarragon, and chives), a delicate herb blend used in French cooking. Chervil is a good accompaniment with egg dishes—either added to an omelet or sprinkled on scrambled eggs, and lightly dressed salads.


Selecting the best produce

Fresh, quality herbs, will appear as though they have just been picked with plump looking leaves.  Look for produce that has healthy stems with no signs of yellowing or wilting.


Storing

0 degrees celcius at 90-100% relative humidity.


Harvesting & Packaging

Chervil is a spring herb. Like parsley and coriander, heat will cause plants to go to seed and become bitter, so it is important that chervil is picked at the just the right time to ensure product freshness and taste.

Fresh Please Chervil is hand cut and tied into 200g bunches or packed into Fresh Please ‘travel friendly’ pre-packs.  Pre-packs are available in a range of sizes from 20g upwards dependent on your requirements.


Availability
