A Story by Joe

when i was about 6 y.o. my divorced father had a guatemalan maid who cooked "authentic" meals, most of which prominently featured cilantro (usually in lemon juice, WTF? it's not bad enough a...



A Story by Marinasaurus

I read an article about 10 years ago that changed my life. It explained that people like me (intelligent, thoughtful, beneficent people who DESPISE the odious taste of the disgusting herb) actually ma...



A Story by Todd

I eat everything. I mean everything, except cilantro or coriander. When I was a teenager, my friends observed my eating habits and challenged me to eat a bicycle. I did it. I melted down all the p...



A Story by Jay

I eat anything or so I thought before a glorious two week trip to Cozumel about 15 years ago. One of those pre-paid eat and drink places. Anyway, first lunch was a buffet loaded with great looking M...



A Story by Nocrapfood

I made the totally F'd mistake of following a recipe from a really famous TV "COOK/CHEF" and managed to ruin about a Kg(2Lb) good beef plus multiple portions of other ingredients required to...



A Story by Amanda

I've got too many stories about this repulsive substance to relate, and I just absolutely cannot believe how some people love it, and actually pay money for it and use it purposely in cooking. It's s...



A Story by Phil

So I was about 18, eating a burrito, and chomped my way into a long sprig of green. Being of the voracious kind, I prompty pulled the foliage into my mouth. Then the foul weed made its true intentions...



A Story by Shannon

A few years ago I began experimenting with my cooking. Until that time I had only made the occasional hamburger helper for my mother. I decided to try something simple, like a chicken tortilla soup. E...



A Story by John

I suppose I should consider myself one of the lucky ones. I managed to avoid all contact with cilantro for the first eighteen years of my life. This is largely due to two accidents (or blessings, if...



A Story by Dave

I am a life-long cilantro hater, and, unfortunately, come from a Panamanian family. For those who don't know, Carribean and Latin American food, and specifically Panamanian food, always contains cila...



A Story by Rafaelo

I was about 5 or 6 when I first realized that cilantro sucks really big!! My Mom would use it when cooking Mexican food. I remember shopping with her at the grocery store and I picked up a bunch, and ...



A Story by Stella

My cilantro story began a couple of years ago during my first year of college. I had this little guinea pig who I would buy fresh produce for every once in a while to keep him happy. I usually got par...



A Story by Jay

I remember being relieved to see a "Cilantro - please taste before adding" sign at nearby Mongolian barbeque. That gave me comfort knowing that I wasn't alone. In order to actually make th...



A Story by Lisa

First time I tasted coriander/cilantro was in an indian restaurant. I had just received my meal, took a first bite, then this foul taste started spreading itself throughout my whole head....well thats...



A Story by Mike

I think the first time I had cilantro was in some salad. I had had salad before, of course, but I was pretty sure salad wasn't supposed to taste like that. But what could I say? It looked like lettuc...



A Story by Ahtami

Well on top of Cilantro being a foul tasting substance, it appears that I am allergic to it as well. I was at the Mall of America and I bought a taco from what looked to be a reputable establishment....



A Story by Alice Radley

All in all, cilantro and I had not tussled much ... until about 13 years ago. I had grown up with salsa, never noticing the green menace. Then when I was about 15, I went to eat my first Thai meal. ...



A Story by Kevin S

It's one thing to encounter the soapy, astringent, tongue-and-toe curling taste of cilantro in foods that are unfortunately designed to showcase the brutal flavor of this weed, but it's quite another ...



A Story by Satya

I never lived in a place with good Mexican food until I moved to San Francisco, so I was looking forward to a great burrito on a regular basis. But from the very first burrito,there was this weird tas...



A Story by Kristin

The first time I tried cilantro was over 15 years ago in Mexico. This was before the cilantro trend hit America. Mexicans serve what is basically salsa, which they describe as 'salad.' Personally, I ...
