Adele posted a comment on my previous marjoram post and mentioned "a hilarious piece" by Australian food writer Terry Durack. Well, hooray Google, because I managed to track down his book, Hunger, on google books (check it out here). The piece is called "The Unsung Herb" and it IS hilarious:
"... in the meantime, prim and proper miss marjoram is forced to eke out a living in odd jobs like being scattered over a light cheese omelette..."
Hee. I think I might get to use marjoram tonight (yes I still have some and yes it's still green). I'll keep you posted.
