In the traditional cuisine of Cephalonia, oregano is substituted by a local variety of marjoram that grows abundantly on the island. The locals call it “Sampsiho”, and they use it to give a flowery, subtle spiciness to many of their tomato, fish or root vegetable recipes. To them, oregano is a must for lentil soups.
Intense flowery and peppery fragrance with hints of citrus. All dishes and foods that traditionally pair well with marjoram will taste even better with this rich varietal.
