When I started gardening I decided to have a herb garden so bought and planted seeds for all types of herbs. One was coriander which I see is also called cilantro. It grew so profusely and smelt awful. Nevertheless I tried cooking with the leaves and later the seeds and my meals were really spoiled to me by a vile taste. I have kept quiet about my extreme dislike of this plant until today when I stumbled upon this site and find I am not alone!! In fact I just cannot believe how many people dislike this plant and wonder why it is put into so much food.
