Discover a new world of naturally superior herbal seasonings and infusions.
It’s interesting that whilst the Mediterranean is home to a large variety of aromatic plants, the finest examples rarely ever cross the narrow borders of their native lands. You could hunt for Mediterranean herbs at food markets, spice stores and delis around the world, but even your best finds won’t compare to the hand-picked oregano bunches that Greek women dry on their balconies during the summer months, or to the wild thyme shrubs that fill the islands’ air with their dainty fragrance each spring. And this is what Daphnis and Chloe is all about; sourcing this genuine bounty that can only be encountered in the natural state of things.
Put simply, Greece is where some of the highest quality Mediterranean cooking herbs naturally prefer to grow. The varieties that grow in Greek soil can contain up to 30 times more essential oils (a parameter that defines their quality) than other typically available herbs sourced form elsewhere. Moreover, thanks to its immense diversity of microclimates, Greece is home to an infinite list of endemic plants. D&C are sourced from natural plantations and family-run farms where the produce is grown according to organic agricultural principles.
WHOLE OREGANO BOUQUET
DetailsOregano is not an herb but rather a name used to define nearly 40 plants available across the world that respond to the same flavor profile. Greece happens to be where the most praised varieties come from and Mount Taygetus is home to the most popular of all Greek oreganos. Rich in essential oils, pungent and peppery, this is what we call all-purpose oregano here at Daphnis and Chloe. Now available also in whole bouquets. Oregano is an essential seasoning for all things Mediterranean from pizzas to grilled meat and veggies. A wise old trick says that a pinch of oregano in your legumes can facilitate digestion. Here at Daphnis and Chloe we also love mixing it with coarse salt, black pepper and chili flakes. Net weight: 30 g|1.06 oz
