Parsley - Flat Leaf - 100g

about

Many people think flat leaf parsley has a stronger flavour than the curly variety, and this opinion is backed by chemical analysis which finds much higher levels of essential oil in the flat-leaved. One of the compounds of the essential oil is apiol. In Central and Eastern Europe and in West Asia, many dishes are served with fresh chopped flat leaf parsley sprinkled on top. The fresh flavor of the flat leaf parsley goes extremely well with potato dishes (french fries, boiled buttered potatoes or mashed potato), with rice dishes (risotto or pilaf), with fish, fried chicken, lamb or goose, steaks, meat or vegetable stews (like Beef Bourguignon, Goulash or Chicken paprikash).
