Well, new to me. Until recently, I only ever used them when a recipe called for them. After watching a lot of Jacques Pepin cooking show episodes recently where he uses them or chives in just about everything, I've been improvising and putting them in all sorts of things: pasta sauces, risottos, pilafs, pizza, sauteed vegetables, it's really endless. They bring such a fresh taste to dishes. Does anyone else use them a lot?
