How to use: Marjoram has a protagonistic role in the culinary tradition of several Greek islands. In the traditional cuisine of Cephalonia, they use it to give a flowery, subtle spiciness to many of their tomato, fish or root vegetable recipes. In nearby Lefkada, it’s a must for lentil soups. Pleasantly intense, Daphnis and Chloe’s marjoram has a flowery and peppery fragrance with hints of citrus. It also makes a lovely herbal tea.
