The spice I don't care for is cloves.

The herb is cilantro.

Interesting topic!


I like both dill and Tarragon, but find that I don't want to eat them too often.

Has anybody ever cooked with cervil? I haven't, which is why I am asking.

Spices and herbs are different, but oh well.

Regarding Chervil, you can treat it like a microgreen meaning that it's better to eat it raw in a salad or appetizer rather than cook it. Chervil is popular in French cuisine and is used in traditional Bernaise and other French sauces. For personal preference, I like the fresh uncooked flavor of chervil and because its flavor is less intense than that of a parsley, I like to use it in salads or raw seafood appetizers (such as Ahi Tartare) to give a nice contrast in taste and texture.

Roasmary & fennel are the only 2 I don't really care for. My FIL killed a batch of roasted potatoes with rosemary once & I can't stand it now.

That shows how tastes vary. I regularly make roasted potatoes with olive oil, garlic and rosemary!


Thanks for the advice concerning Chervil, also for the spelling check.

I don't like fennel or anise, either.
Soap or perfume!

i can't think of any herbs or spices that i don't like. my all time favorite would have to be rosemary and second would be fresh ginger root. the scent it gives off is great. if i had to pick one though i think it would be cloves.
