Marjoram is oregano's calmer, sweeter fraternal twin. Where oregano is zesty, peppery and lemony, marjoram is delicate, floral and round with sweet pine and citrus aroma and flavour. It grows wild in the Mediterranean. Lovely in marinades with oil and garlic on lamb, chicken, fish or pork for charcoal grilling. Excellent in a traditional Salsa Verde served with salt-roasted fish. Superb in vinaigrettes for traditional Greek salad and on roasted vegetables such as carrot and celery root and as a flavouring to braise artichokes Roman style.
