Afrodite’s favorite!

Rosemary is a bush with fragrant, evergreen, needle-like leaves and white, pink, purple, or blue flowers. Its name “rosemary” derives from the Latin words “ros”, meaning “dew” and “marinus,” meaning “sea” – “dew of the sea”, as it’s often growing near the sea.

Its aroma and strong taste have been known to native civilizations since at least 500 B.C. Ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans used it on various occasions, such as in the decoration of buildings and temples or burning it as an incense and of course in cooking.

In Greek mythology, it’s said to have been draped around the Greek goddess Aphrodite when she rose from the sea. Another legend says that the Virgin Mary spread her blue cloak over a white-blossomed rosemary bush while she was resting, and the flowers turned blue. The shrub then became known as the “Rose of Mary”.

Rosemary besides the myths and legends about it is one of the key ingredients in Mediterranean cuisine. Especially here in Crete is one of our favorites. It is often used in marinades for meat, but it also goes well with fish, vegetables, and rice. Try it with legumes such as black beans or chickpeas or maybe in your soups, to add a spicy taste.

We highly recommend you to try it with hochlioi boubouristoi (burbling snails) and barbounia savoro (red mullet with savory sauce), and of course lamb, one of Cretan’s favorites meat.

Divined taste!

This “divine” herb will bring a Greek feeling to your meals with its strong taste and calming aroma, but it will also boost your wellbeing with its medicinal properties. Rosemary has long been recommended for strengthening the brain and memory. The herb contains substances that are useful for improving digestion and increasing circulation.
