Parsley is an aromatic herbaceous plant among the most widespread and used in cooking. It was already known in ancient times and appreciated for its medicinal qualities. It has a thin stem and jagged, deep green leaves.
Parsley is used to flavour sauces, soups, meat, fish and vegetables, but it is great even in the preparation of compound butters and garnished bouquets. There is also a less fragrant curly type.
