Lovage (Levisticum officinale) – The French call it celeri batard (false celery) because of its many similarities to celery, and it’s also known as sea parsley, smallage, smellage, and wild parsley. This tall (up to 8 feet, 2.4 m) perennial has an extremely strong flavour of celery and may be used as a celery substitute. The leaves may be added to salads and stews, and the slender hollow stalks may be braised like celery or candied like angelica. This is also the plant that provides us with the spice celery seed.
