What Kind of Parsley Do You Cook With?

Do You Cook With Flat-Leaf or Curly Parsley?

The other day I was at Whole Foods when I witnessed a very interesting conversation between a customer and one of the produce section's employees. She asked him where the parsley was, and when he pointed her toward the Italian flat-leaf parsley, she said, "That's not parsley!" I was surprised that she had never heard of Italian parsley. It, naturally, got me thinking about parsley preferences. I always cook with flat-leaf. How about you?

I don't use parsley at all, I hate it actually :-)

Neither for me. But I see both kinds everywhere, well at my usual haunts. I never tried a recipe that calls for one. Am I missing something?

I've never seen curly parsley before!

I rarely ever see curly parsley anymore. Seriously, does it still exist?!

both- if i buy individual packets, they tend to be flat-leaf, but if a buy a huge bunch or a little plant, it's curly-leaf because it's much hardier; i also think the curly variety has a more robust, almost grassier flavour which some don't like

I also have a curly parsley plant. It grows like crazy! And honestly, I like the flavor much better than the flat leaf.

I use both. We have a curled parsley plant so when it is going strong we use that. When we buy it we usually get flat leaf.
