I almost cried with joy when I saw this website mentioned in the Baltimore Sun over the weekend. I thought I was the only cilantro-hater in the world! If there is any chance that cilantro will appear in or on my meal, I tell the waiter/ess to keep it away. There's not really an "aha" moment for when I realized I hated cilantro, just the realization that something tasted really shitty in my food and by process of elimination (no pun intended) figured that was it. My husband and teenagers have had hours of enjoyment watching me pick flakes of cilantro out of my food when necessary. In fact, in deference to me, call it the "C word." Another "C word" thing I hate is capers. Anyone else out there want to be in THAT support group with me?
