About Chives


The most delicate and diminutive member of the edible onion family packs a mild yet tangy punch. Chives offer a subtle onion taste, combined with the unmistakable oniony aroma. The mild flavour is reminiscent of baby spring onions or young leeks and makes chives a great additional ingredient in a variety of dishes ranging from soups and salads, to omelettes and cheeses. Chefs looking to retain the delicate onion flavour and deep green colour tend to use chives raw – or added to a dish, just before serving.
