    greek oregano in flower

    Favorite thing: Chios is known for the quality and aroma of its wild herbs. Before you leave the island make sure you buy some of the local wild oregano. It is by far the best in Greece. You will most probably not find it in super markets but at individual small grocery stores. Ask around. They will probably be sold with the stem. This is no problem. When you get home rub the oregano with your fingers off the stems.

    Not only you will have this exquisite aroma on your fingers you will have a top rate herb to add this extra taste to your meals.

    Favorite thing: Nea Moni, this was a fantastic site to visit.

    Fondest memory: So many ! buying a falling down house and spending Greek easter in the village this year.Going for bread every day from the woodburning oven in the village to eat with beautiful eggs.only hearing the sound of children playing and the clock striking the hour.
