Any amount of cooking just destroys the flavor of chervil. Luckily, it's so tender to begin with it can be tossed into dishes at the very last second or even eaten raw. By the way, this includes the drying process: don't even bother with using dried chervil!
Try tossing whole chervil leaves into salad mixes. They add a fresh, sweet flavor to contrast bitter greens and spicy arugula. Or you can mix finely chopped chervil into a vinaigrette to pour over your salad. This is especially tasty when you add in the other classic "fine herbes": chives, tarragon, and parsley.
Chervil is also fantastic with eggs! We like to sprinkle a little over the tops of omelets right before serving or stir minced leaves into gently cooked eggs en cocotte. You can also chop the leaves very finely and mix them into butter to use with steamed vegetables, fish, and grilled meats. The residual heat from the food amplifies the aroma of the chervil without destroying its flavor.
Do you like chervil? How do you use it?
