A Story by Julie

I'm happy to say I've contributed to the Coriander-hating moevment by creating new members - literally. I've hated coriander all my life and my friends and family mock my hatred. Well, recently we w...



A Story by Roving Thundercloud

I'm originally from Oregon, but we moved to New Mexico for a few years when I was a kid. There, "salsa" or "hot sauce" meant "pureed chiles," and I loved it. But by the...



A Story by Stephanie

For a long time I didn't know it was Coriander that I hated. I would sometimes smell or taste it and go, "what is that disgusting smell/taste?" The worst offender is my Mom's Spanikopeta. ...



A Story by John

My first, and only, coriander disaster occurred when I was 28 years old in 1986. There was an upscale Mexican restaurant near my home that my cousin wanted to check out. He was a manager over 5 rest...



A Story by Rob

I, like many of you first experience coriander in Mexican.

I could never figure out why I so detested salsa at "authentic" Mexican restaurants. As a child, I loved new and differ...

I was traveling with family in Hawaii about four years ago. One day we went to a Luau - you know, where they serve you all sorts of traditional Hawaiian food. I was quite dismayed to find out that a...



A Story by Janis Dodson

I was a chaperone for Hands Across the Border, a student exchange program in Arizona and Mexico. Us parents got to go first to scope out the situation. On the long bus ride down I looked forward to ...



A Story by Barbara C.

My first experience was many years ago, as I am 73, and buying it for a recipe. the minute I began to chop it up, I felt a bad smell in my nose and it smellled like my cat's box, if I forgot to clean...



A Story by Matt

Having grown up in Colorado, a veritable Mexican-food paradise, I can't go more than a couple of days without a burrito or a nice relleno. For years upon years, my addiction was fed easily and succes...



A Story by

When I was, maybe, 19, I went on a music retreat which was held at some hippie haven. They served burritos for dinner the first night we were there. I didn't think they were very good, but hey, I wa...



A Story by Rich

My first (and last, God willing) run-in with Coriander occurred not a week ago at a little place called Donny P's.

Also known as Don Pablo's, its a great Mexican chain restaurant. Fun atmosp...



A Story by James L

Wow..Where have you been all my life? I've been looking for a site like this for a long time. *sigh of relief*

So my first memory of coriander destroyed my childhood. Unlike most people who h...



A Story by Phillip Wade

I grew up in New Mexico in the 50's and 60's. As far as I know, this disgusting weed was unknown there. It was only when I moved to California, I discovered the foul taste. I had no clue as to why ...



A Story by Chris

Hi, my name is Chris and I hate Coriander.

I live in the UK and have hated Coriander for as long as I can remember. Recently I found myself travelling to the US and whilst in a 'Red Lobster' ...



A Story by Ross

I was an exchange student to Mexico in high school and loved the authentic food I had there; all except for one dish that I could not handle for a number of reasons...

Some may know "me...



A Story by Alan M

I never knew I had a coriander problem until 1995.

That was the year I started finding the stuff in ever-larger pieces on my ethnic food. And even larger pieces on my "modern fusion cui...



A Story by Rita

OK, so tell me how coriander fits into ITALIAN cuisine. The cook at this small Italian restaurant obviously did not possess an adequate sense of smell--or sight--when he picked up coriander at the ma...



A Story by Sarah

I never did understand why I would involuntarily gag after trying salsa at most Mexican restaurants as a kid. It wasn't until I was out for a romantic dinner with my husband (then boyfriend) at a Thai...



A Story by Kathi

Everytime I go out to eat, no matter what the cuisine (naturally avoiding Vietnamese, authentic Chinese - west coast, Mexican, Thai, Indian, Pacific Rim, Morrocan & anything fusion) I have to doub...



A Story by Yummy

Oh my - I thought I was the only one. I feel so liberated.

My friends adore this vile, putrid menance, and tend to sprinkly on everything we eat. Dish after dish of loveliness destroyed in a...
