Daphnis & Chloe's marjoram arrives in small quantities from organic farms in Crete and Central Greece. Harvested by hand and dried naturally, it is 100% handmade. A close relative of oregano, marjoram has a legendary culinary heritage. Shakespeare has even immortalized it as “the herb of Grace.”

Sweet and zesty, marjoram has the fame of being one of the herbs that best maintain their full flavor and aroma after dried. It contributes a nice flavor to pork, soups, stuffings, and legumes. You can use it as a topping for hummus or toss in a beetroot salad. Excellent for seasoning veggie roasts.

In the local cuisine of the Ionian islands, marjoram is an essential ingredient for lentil soup. Some enjoy it the most as an herbal tea: Infuse 1tsp at 95C for 5mins, covered. Steep and serve.

Daphnis and Chloe was established in 2013, in a small workshop right under the Acropolis Hill of Athens. The team's dream was to see the limited batch terroir herbs of Greece in the kitchens of home cooks worldwide. 

Daphnis and Chloe come from a small country with a peculiar geographical distribution and variable micro-climates where Mediterranean herbs thrive. Studied by scientists and traded by farmers since the beginning of history, these little known ingredients have great culinary value. However, they rarely cross the borders of their places of origin. 

The D&C team's job has become to travel the country for superior herbs and inspire farmers to believe in forgotten, heirloom varieties. They source from small organic farms across Greece, and they know their growers by their first name. Curating their plants’ journey from sourcing to shipping, the team makes sure they’ll maintain their magical properties all the way to your kitchen!
