Chervil is a feathery plant resembling cow parsley, the leaves of which can be used in salads and vegetable dishes. The flavour is similar to parsley, with a slight taste of aniseed. Seed sown in February will produce chervil through the summer, while that planted in August will provide a crop in winter but it does not tolerate frost. If it becomes dry or hot it will bolt.
