Most commonly grown in Europe and south-west Asia, lovage (sometimes known as sea parsley) is a relative of the parsley family. The green (sometimes yellowish) leaves vaguely resemble parsley or celery and extend from tall, fibrous roots.
The flavour of the leaves is fresh, intense and quite unique – a little like aniseed with hints of celery, but a lot stronger. It is powerful enough to hold its own and add real lift to plant-based cooking.Already a member? Sign in.
