Our menu (read: Peggy) has been known to lead us to many unusual places, but this week it led us right out of the kitchen and into the magical backyard garden of an old friend. In pursuit of a fresh yet subtle flavor to compliment our blanched greens and local shiitakes, we wandered right up to a lovingly constructed garden gate. This is what we found...

Chimes singing softly at the entrance made us feel right at home.

A vibrant bed of chervil awaited us. The mild herb is still thriving, despite the fluctuating fall weather. Peggy respectfully harvested just what we needed, so as to avoid lessening the plant's chance of survival.

Our final basketful of beautiful chervil! A member of the parsley family, chervil will brighten our meal and aid digestion. 

Back to the kitchen we go!
