A Story by Karen

The first time I had cilantro was in a Mexican restaurant in San Francisco about 15 years ago. I was in college and visiting my uncle on a trip with my dad. I was starving and had just dug into my fir...



A Story by Joel

I first ran into cilantro cooking at a kosher-vegetarian restaurant in the mid-80s.

The restaurant owner wanted to add a different flavor to our tabbouleh salad and order a huge bunch of cila...



A Story by Travis

I live in Virginia in the USA which, thankfully, seems to be relatively cilantro-free. When I was 19 years old, I left home to serve a 2-year mission for my Church in Brazil. When I first got there,...



A Story by Jeff

I was in a Mexican restaurant with my wife and friends. I loved Mexican. I ordered a burrito. When the food came I tasted mine and found that it wasn't very spicey. I like hot food so I asked the ...



A Story by Diamond

It seems that within the past five years cilantro has been added to more and more dishes when I eat out. I can't stand it!!!! Why do the chefs do this???? What has caused this??? Noone asked me if ...



A Story by Mac

The same restaurants that served "staple" dishes for years in the DC area have chosen to put cilantro in these menu items.
If it's not broke don't fix it!!!
Most recently, the occide...



A Story by Mazapegul

I grew up in Italy, a cilantro free country (trust me, I spent 33 years there, and I never had to eat it, I didn't even know that such thing could exist).
Then I moved to USA, and I was soon invit...



A Story by LF Wade

My father will not chop cilantro while I am in the downstairs of the house - the odor is just too strong for me. I guess it proves he loves me....

The first time I experienced cilantro was at a Mexican restaurant (I believe "Uncle Julio's") about 15 years ago. I was there with a party of about 10 people, family and friends.

A Story by Margherita

I feel I was tricked into trying cilantro, as I was just getting into gardening, and deciding which herbs to plant... at the same time had been reading my recipe books which seemed to contain an ungod...



A Story by Kelli

I learned to despise cilantro at a young age. My family lived overseas for many years, where markets are unreliable, and vegetables poorly labeled. My mother, seeking parsley for a recipe, wasn't su...



A Story by Maria

It tastes like soap! It's bizarre that people like this vile stuff! My mom loves it, and used to put it in everything she cooked, despite my pleas, until she heard somewhere that if cilantro tastes li...



A Story by Margherita

First off... here in New Zealand, we know cilantro as "coriander", so obviously this little herb has adapted to survive in many far-off countries. I first came across "cilantro" w...

My 2nd anniversary and my husband spent all day and lots of money creating the perfect anniversary meal which consisted of crab cakes (main spice - cilantro) and morrocan trout (covered in cilantro). ...



A Story by Marc Iturriaga

When I was 5 years old, we went to visit family friends whom we visited on a regular basis. My father is from Chile, and the parents of whom we were visiting were from Chile (father) and the Philipin...



A Story by Leslie T

I don't know really if I hate the taste of cilantro when mixed in foods, but the smell of the fresh variety is the worst!

I was making cheese trays for a party once and the supermarket did no...



A Story by Jen

I have had a deadly garlic allergy since I was 8 years old, so I am very accustomed to checking with chefs and hosts what the ingredients are in the food I am offered. About 10 years ago, I attended a...



A Story by Dan

It was a party, in my teenage years. My aunty had lovingly made all her own appetisers. There were these small rice balls which looked quite appetising. I popped one in my mouth and started to chew, b...



A Story by Laurie

The first time I remember tasting this gross crap was about 5 years ago. I had knee surgery and a kind(?) coworker brought me dinner one night. I was soo hungry, because I was depending on my husban...



A Story by Lindsay

I didn't know I hated cilantro. I thought I hated Mexican food. This didn't occur as odd to me until I remembered that I used to love Mexican food as a child, and now all of a sudden I hated it. Af...
