Rosemary has a very strong presence in the Greek ...gardens. As strong as basil has.
BUT in the same mysterious way is not widely used in cooking.
As I have written here, in other posts, basil is strongly related with religion, the same is for rosemary so maybe this is the reason that Greeks do not use them so much in their dishes.

I find the taste of rosemary overpowering and I am not a great fan of rosemary in cooking.

I have tasted baby goat stuffed with rice, cheese and rosemary on the island of Amorgos in cyclades.
We also use it in some marinades and some sauces of Venician origin, like the sauce of fish savorro.

The word rosemary brings to my mind Italian Kitchen and a Easter dinner in Rome some years ago :)
