Flat Leaf Parsley Vs. Curly Leaf Parsley


Italian, or flat leaf, parsley has flat leaves as its name suggests, and many cooks prefer it for its more pronounced flavor, as it contains more essential oils than the curly leaf variety.

Curly leaf parsley is most often used as a garnish to add color to plates of monochromatic food or to dress up seafood displays.

While parsley is generally used for its leaves, parsley stems actually contain more flavor. Finely dice them and add to stocks, sauces, sautés and other preparations for added taste and vitamins.
