It goes wonderfully with all dishes of Mediterranean origin, based on tomatoes, fresh cheese such as mozzarella, olive oil ... It is essential to the famous Neapolitan pizza, as much as to Provencal pissaladiere. It perfectly picks up the black olives for sunny aperitifs and it excels on grilling, especially lamb chops. It is also used in cold meats, to flavor sausages or stuffings.
Little anecdote : In Egypt and India, it was considered as a sacred plant. Greeks and Romans attributed to oregano aphrodisiac virtues: it was thus the plant of happiness and love, that was offered to the newly weds. It was also in Antiquity that its medicinal properties were discovered, and, in the Middle Ages, its infusion was frequently recommended.
