Found this page a few years ago after my first real shock like encounters with cilantro. I was backpacking through the US and down through central america and never ever had I given that uncanny herb another thought. Not before each and every meal I had was overflowing with the dreadful green stuff. Kept expecting to have soap bubbling out of my mouth every time. Horrid, horrid experience, but I got through it. For some reason my sister seems to have overcome the soap experience and doesn't mind cilantro anymore. I don't get it...
Recently been asked to describe cilantro as one would a wine. Can't get passed " austere and intense flavour of soap..." nah can't do it
