MARJORAM - has long been one of the most prized herbs. It is less robust, more sweetly scented and delicate than its cousin oregano. It can be substituted for oregano to achieve a more subtle flavour. Egypt is the principal source of marjoram. We select marjoram which has a pleasantly aromatic and minty-sweet flavour with a slight background bitterness. In modern kitchens, it is the herb with 1,000 uses. Pair it with beans, peas and spinach. It is also good in salads and stuffings.
