My cilantro story, first experience, recent anecdote, rant, etc...
I was at a very nice, upscale restaurant. I ordered the chicken something. I started to eat it, and a nasty, soapy taste assailed my taste buds. Reluctantly, I sent it back, telling the food server that someone must have spilled some soap onto the chicken. A few minutes later, I got another dish of the chicken something, presumably soap free. Uh uh. The soapy taste was still there. I figured out that the little green particles clinging to the surface of the chicken were the source of the nasty soapy taste. This time, rather than waste food, I spent the next ten minutes extracting the green invaders. To this day, even the tiniest speck of that evil weed can ruin a dish. I am always on cilantro alert. I remember a time in our nation's history when I did not have to worry about cilantro tainting my food. Ahh, those were the days! Cilantro should be used as a weapon of mass destruction.
More about me:
I am a twin female, 54 years old. I am a gourmet cook with a well-supplied kitchen. I tell people, "If it's an herb or spice and I don't have it, it's cilantro." I like to write, mostly nonfiction. I am a grammar freak. I love words. I love animals and I contribute to several environmental and animal welfare charities. I strongly support regime change in Washington.

I am a Hays, Kansas, native and I too get tired of every mexican restaurant in town lacing their food with cilantro. It's a pain to did out!
