A Story

Hi, my name is Chris and I hate Cilantro.

I live in the UK and have hated Coriander for as long as I can remember. Recently I found myself travelling to the US and whilst in a 'Red Lobster' restaurant decided that I would like to try something new. I noticed that with my salad I could have a Cilantro dressing. Having heard this ingredient mentioned on US TV shows (apparently everything in California is covered in it). I decided to give it a go. Imagine my horror when I found myself with a mouthful of the poison that I had previously known as Coriander! After some wretching I was able to put the traumatic experience behind me. In future I will make sure I know the local name for this evil plant before any international travel.
