They seem to belong to the I-don't-care kind, to my utter dismay. We never had some though, as they are Good people.
If cilantro were a historical malevolent dictator, who would it be? Why?
It would most definitively be Adolf Hitler, given its outrageous imposition of its atrocious taste upon any food you blend it in. Probably even poo would taste like coriander if you put some in.
My cilantro story, first experience, recent anecdote, rant, etc...
I could rant all day on coriander - I have witnesses - but I will summarize by just stating I F!$%!*ING HATE CORIANDER.
My fist experience has been a nasty one. I actually spend - happily - a good 20 years before even knowing that horrendous taste, until after visiting a marketplace where coriander was on display (bushes of...), I realized the mere smell of it made me feel sick. I left the place (because of the coriander, yes) and mentally engraved the name 'coriander' as a no-go. Then a few years ago, I came to the USA as an intern in a company and tried with some colleagues a funny green sandwich... a "cilantro sandwich". I had no clue as to what "cilantro" was. The horror... The bread was baked with 'it', the sauce was made of 'it' and fresh leaves of 'it' were sprouting all around. And there I was, French freshman in a strange country, surrounded by people obviously enjoying their meal, and me, gagging silently and trying hard to look civilized. I had it all, and spent the rest of the day feeling nauseous and 'dirty'.
I made an oath to myself that day : NEVER AGAIN.

That's pretty much anything worth knowing about me.
