what does cilantro taste like to you?
for every cilantro lover who basks in its citrusy flavor, there is an equal voice that denounces its soapy taste. supposedly there is a cilantro gene that determines what it tastes like to each individual person. julia child was among the many who hated cilantro.
i could eat mexican food every night, but it has become such a chore! we have learned where to eat and not eat based on the chef's flare (or lack there of) for cilantro. some day i swear i am going to tell the chef to stop wasting his time chopping the cilantro and just pour ivory dish soap over my fish tacos. yummy.
