salsa and all indian food - i LOVE both but cilantro RUINS them.
Do people in your family hate cilantro, too? Who?
no. they all love it but they know i'll complain endlessly if they use it in something they're planning on serving to me. my best friend and i are both "allergic" to cilantro; itchy throats and the taste of a mouthful of soap. she says it tastes like pennies.
If cilantro were a historical malevolent dictator, who would it be? Why?
george w. bush. because cilantro sucks and is stupid and worthless.
My cilantro story, first experience, recent anecdote, rant, etc...
i had never even heard of cilantro until sometime in 1986. my parents owned a restaurant and hired a new chef who put cilantro in EVERYTHING. omelettes, french cuisine, everything mexican, MASHED POTATOES (evil!)... everything. it took me a while to ascertain what it was that tasted like soap in everything i was eating, but when i finally pinpointed it, there was no looking back. i was on a mission to spread the gospel about the evils of this vile weed. the first time i met another person who thought cilantro tasted like soap, i think i squealed with glee because i didn't feel like such a freak anymore. i would say that cilantro gained popularity in the mid 80's here in the states and it's gotten completely out of control and must be stopped. interestingly enough, i don't mind coriander seeds at all; as a matter of fact, i eat and cook a lot of indian food and use coriander regularly, but always ALWAYS omit the cilantro without any apologies. i don't even serve it on the side. i don't want it in my home, in my refrigerator, on my table or in my guests! my home is a NO CILANTRO ZONE.
More about me:
I hate cilantro. my boyfriend loves it, but he knows better than to try and sneak it in anything i'm going to consume.
