Culinary arts

Sometimes referred to as "gourmet's parsley", chervil is used to season poultryseafood, and young vegetables. It is particularly popular in France, where it is added to omelettes, salads and soups. More delicate than parsley, it has a faint taste ofliquorice.

Chervil is sometimes used to repel slugs

 

Medicinal

Chervil had various traditional uses. Pregnant women were bathed in an infusion of it; a lotion of it was used as a skin cleanser; and it was used medicinally as a blood purifier. It was also claimed to be useful as a digestive aid, for lowering high blood pressure, and, infused with vinegar, for curing hiccups.[2]

Chervil has also been implicated in "strimmer dermatitis" due to a phytophotodermatitis due to spray from a weed trimmer. Other plants in the parsley family can have similar effects.

    I'm very happy with the product,I have actually ordered more than one product and will order more.My order was shipped right away by the distributor with a tracking number,very professional! The only thing is that the usps held my order for 5 days at one location...I don't understand why but it's not the distributor's fault.Oh...I also got a gift :))
