Kitchen Dictionary: lovage

Pronounced: LUHV-ihj

Lovage grows up to 7 feet high with large, dark green celery-like leaves. The flavor of the pale stalks is like that of very strong celery with parsley undertones. The Lovage has been used since Greek and Roman times for everything from seasonings to curatives for maladies ranging from indigestion to freckles. The seeds and stalks can be used (in small amounts) in soups, stews, and other dishes such as fowl or game. The stalks can be cooked as a vegetable. The seeds are commonly called celery seed, and lovage is also called smallage and smellage.


Season: available year-round
