Oregano is sometimes called wild marjoram and is widely used as a culinary herb, especially in Spanish, Italian, and French cuisine. Oregano is also an ornamental plant, with numerous cultivars bred for varying leaf color, flower color, and habit.
Oregano’s most prominent modern use is Italian cuisine’s staple herb. However, its popularity in the U.S. began when soldiers returning from World War II brought a taste for the “pizza herb.” It is most frequently used with roasted, fried, or grilled vegetables, meat, and fish and combines well with spicy foods.
