Today's Food Query

Fennel
How much of the fennel does one use? I love fennel it offers this marvelous taste twist. Looking for food layers and the fennel sautéed with a bit of butter, onion and garlic makes a delightful ‘relish’ to top anything! BUT how much of the fennel can one use? Is it like leeks, where all the bottom portions are tasty but the higher you head in the green it tastes like wood? Or is it an onion like entity where one can gobble the whole thing without a change is taste? (well not the stringy root part but you get what I’m saying right?)
My mission is to seek flavor so I’m a wonderin’
