Our Rumanian super gave me some lovage and said that this was an essential ingredient in Rumainian soups; anyone out there have any experience either cooking with, or growing lovage???

I've heard of lovage but that's about the extent of it. I went to Gernot Katzer's pages first just to see what it looks like:

Googling for recipes with lovage results in zillions of pages about lovage, but here is an interesting one:

The tiny bit of lovage I had tasted a bit like celery, with darker undertones. I'd taste some before putting it in your garden. It gets a bit out of hand I gather, reaching heights of 4-6 feet!

I live in an area where Lovage grows wild. It seems very strange now that I come to think about it but I think have I have only ever eaten it once, in soup. As I recall it was very much like celery soup.
