common cooking herbs:


parsley Common curly-leaf parsley has an extremely mild (read: virtually nonexistent) aroma and flavor, and is primarily used as a garnish and breath freshener (just chew on a sprig). For better cooking flavor, go with flat-leaved Italian parsley or French parsley (chervil), which has a slight hint of anise flavor and combines well with other herbs. Donít even bother with dried parsley.

classic uses: garnish, filler for pesto, bouquet garni (classic French trio of thyme, bay leaf and parsley, tied in a bouquet to flavor soups)
