Parsley is one of the most widely used herbs in our kitchens. It harmonises perfectly with any other herb and works well with virtually all salty and spiced dishes. Connoisseur Tip: The most commonly used leaf parsley comes as a flat leaf or curled leaf variety. The two don't only differ visually – flat leaf parsley has a much more intense flavour. Parsley is a perfect ingredient in soups, salads, fromage frais, and many meat dishes, and creates a pretty garnish on your plate. The green leaves add a delightfully fresh look to any recipe.
