I Hate Cilantro.
And this article in the New York Times, explains why and how I'm not the only one who thinks that it tastes like soap. Why, even Julia Child couldn't stand the taste!
"Flavor chemists have found that cilantro aroma is created by a half-dozen or so substances, and most of these are modified fragments of fat molecules called aldehydes. The same or similar aldehydes are also found in soaps and lotions and the bug family of insects."
*Sorry, Shannon, I know you loved that tortilla soup you made me but the reason I didn't want seconds is explained in that article. It wasn't your cooking, I swear!
