A hardy annual herb of the umbelliferae family, native to the Middle East and Southern Russia. It resembles parsley in shape, but with more delicate pointed leaves. It has a slightly aniseed flavour, and goes particularly well with fish. Wild chervil is called "Sweet Cecily".

Chervil belongs to a group of herbs called ' fines herbes'. See 'Fines Herbes'
