A Story by Kris Cline

I first encountered cilantro in some homemade salsa that my mom made. I couldn't get over how horrible it was and how I was the only one who seemingly noticed. At that time, I didn't know it was cilan...

When I was a boy some 40 years ago, we played in these caves. The caves had a rank odor and would leave an unpleasant taste in the mouth. It was caused by a large population of bats in the caves. Bat ...

I knew nothing about cilantro until that fateful evening at dinner. My wife makes the best soup ever, and I looked forward to her latest masterpiece. The parsley leaves looked a bit larger than usua...

The first time I "met" cilantro was in 1998 during a visit to California. We were eating at the swanky Mr. Chow's and I ordered a chinese tofu dish. I took a big heaping mouthful and almos...

I am Chinese, and my parents have used cilantro in many dishes I have had to eat. My parents never knew the English name for any herbs. They generically referred to all greens as "chai." <...

A Story by Lucy

Years ago it was fashionable to prepare food with balsamic vinegar. I didn't know what it tasted like, but it was in everything so I tried it and guess what? You can keep it! I hated it. What's worse?...



A Story by Anne

Ages ago, in an uppity sort of trendy Chinese restaurant, my father and I ordered hot and sour soup. Both of us marveled that in a nice restaurant like this, we would be served soup in a bowl that had...

I didn't know cilantro was the villain when I instigated a boycot of the school cafeteria on the basis that someone had put soap in the food. Others agreed that it tasted like soap in the food. We ref...

Cilantro wrecked a day on my vacation. My boyfriend and I were on a British Airways flight, and we were served chicken wraps for a snack. I took a massive bite before I realized the green leafy ingr...

For years I would have severe reactions when I ate certain chicken dishes. After taking about two bites of food I would have trouble breathing and become extremely lighheaded and dizzy. My face w...



A Story by Bride'

I guess I am one of the lucky ones as I can smell cilantro from about 10 feet away most times. My allergic reaction(s) have usually resulted in the cilantro being hidden inside the food. My first big ...

I figured out a few years back that I hated coriander. It felt good to finally but a name on the thing that had been ruining perfectly good meals time and time again with its putrid taste. On one of ...



A Story by Matt Dennis
