I have always disliked the taste of cilantro and refused to eat anything that contained it--why not just grate soap onto a salad or salsa? In any case, imagine my excitement when a Washington Post food writer (some years back) wrote about HER distaste for the herb and said that, figuring she was not using it appropriately, she called JULIA CHILD to discover the proper use of it. Julia Child reportedly said she NEVER USED THE STUFF because she hated it. Vindication is sweet.
Couldn't we have little cards made to hand to waiters, saying "NO CILANTRO, PLEASE!"?
