    I don’t mind coriander, but I can’t stand cilantro. The smell is bad, the taste is worse!

    @traveller:  Yeah, the leaves are cilantro, the seeds (whole or ground) are coriander. I cook with coriander sometimes, and it’s never bothered me, but just the smell of the leaves makes me gag.

    @traveller:  As a passionate Foodie & Wine-O, I can tell you that everyone’s Taste Buds are very different.

    The people who get a soapy reaction to Cilantro do so because of a specific enzyme.  Not everyone reacts the same to this chemical.

    Same with other food stuffs… just like everyone else in the world, there are things I love that others do not… our tastebuds are quirky “individual” things.

    I am one who loves all kinds of cuisines, but cannot tolerate Cilantro at all.  It is a pity I suppose, but then again, there are many things in life I enjoy in the Wine Category that others haven’t developed a taste for… so to me it all evens out in the long run.

    I don’t think it tastes like soap, but whenever I eat it I feel like a dog that realizes it’s just been fed a pill…it needs to be spat out immediately.

    @BlondeMissMolly: I have never come across a pre-packaged salsa that had cilantro in it. I do avoid house-made salsa in restaurants though because they always try and sneak it in.

    hatehatehate.  I believe it is genetic…. I wish I liked it as it gets shoved in EVERYTHING.  I find fresh worse than cooked.
