A Story by Cappi

It was a few years ago. I was making homemade guac with my family when the subject of cilantro came up (we weren't actually putting it in the guac, but it came up). My younger brother asked "What...



A Story by Aaron

First off, let me say that I have been a lifelong hater of the evil demon weed known as Cilantro... I have felt so alone in California among all the wonderful Mexican food RUINED by this abomination. ...



A Story by Beth

I always thought that cilantro tasted like soap. No one I know agrees with me. I just read the book Turkey Flambe by Nancy Fairbanks. In it, her main character Carolyn Blue mentions that 10% of people...



A Story by Carol

I've always loved Mexican food - the nachos, the enchiladas - you get it. Then years ago I went to a Hispanic Heritage Festival in the next town over. They had all kind of food for sale. I decided ...



A Story by Nicole

Here goes:
I was a senior in high school. I already knew that I disliked cilantro. It was the day before our winter formal, which of course meant that all of us that had been chosen to be on the c...



A Story by Kristin

You know, I never used to hate cilantro... I know, crazy, right? I certainly knew I didn't like it, and thought it tasted like mild dish soap... Yet being a child who was oft punished with the dab of...



A Story by Chromasnake

I didn't want to hate cilantro. And it didn't used to be as popular as it is now. I guess it started for me back in the late 80s. I was growing an extensive herb and veggie garden, and I loved salsa ...



A Story by LCY

I'm Asian, but I never liked the taste of cilantro even when I was young. When I tasted it in my Mom's cooking, I always spit it out because it created this atrocious flavor in my mouth. My first REAL...



A Story by Joy-Lyn

My first experience with this noxious greenery, I was maybe 20, and was trying a new mexican restaurant. I couldn't have told you what was in my food (soapily tainting every bite) then...and to be qui...



A Story by Alisaurus Rex

Just read the top page of stories here and Lol'ed at Don Koch calling it the "retched weed". I'm sure he meant "wretched" but the first time I tasted it I DID retch it up!


A Story by Pugmalion1

I hate wasting food. In my opinion, wasting food, either by letting it spoil in the fridge, cooking something incorrectly rendering it inedible, dropping it in the dirt, etc, is akin to throwing mone...



A Story by Edie

It was my birthday party--a potluck--and my sister and I noticed something that tasted "off" in the potato salad. The cook mentioned that she'd used some cilantro from her garden. (Who in th...



A Story by Jessica

My first time (I'll try not to weep here) was when my dear Mama made tortilla soup for the first time. I think I was 10 or so. "Oh dear GOD, why does it taste so bad?" I asked. I was a polit...



A Story by Christin

Like many of the submissions, mine is of my first experience with the dreaded weed. When I was about ten or so, my mother made up a dinner salad. Unbeknownst to me, among the regular vegetation was a ...



A Story by Rose

There was always something in Mexican and Asian foods that I didn't like, but I never knew what it was until about 8 years ago. I was working in a natural foods store and one day I walked into the pro...



A Story by Christa Hernandez

First time I tried cilantro was in my grandma`s caldo de pollo (chicken soup). Shortly after I got a fierce stomach ache. I swore off grandma`s soup. Next I was offered cilantro in tortilla soup. I ha...



A Story by Wigwam Jones

I have a coworker who is from India, he is a Sikh. He wears a turban and all. His name is Garm, and his wife is named Binkle. They're great folks, and Mrs. Wiggy and I like them very much. Last summer...



A Story by Florence

I remember the first time I saw cilantro in the store. It was 1992.

I took it home and went to put it in the fridge. When I was closing the door of the fridge I could smell an unpleasant hor...



A Story by Miranda

Every once in a while, while eating at a Mexican restaurant, I would taste something bad. Subtle, but soapy sometimes, and other times almost like that taste chocolate gets when it goes stale.
<...



A Story by Joseph

I'll try to tell you my story but just the thought of it makes my skin crawl. I went to a barbique at which was served a shrimp cocktail LOADED with, you guessed it, the-C-word. Well, one taste and ...
