This is one of the few areas where the clappyfats have improved our language actually. The seeds and leaves of the coriander plant serve totally different culinary purposes, and by referring to the seeds as coriander and the leaves as cilantro they remove the possibility for any confusion.
Every holiday my sister and mom use an entire packet of rosemary and an entire citron on their poultry.
They picked it up from god knows where that it's healthy and helps you lose weight.
They invite me over for dinner and I have to dance around asking what they made so I can avoid it.
It's so fucking bitter.
It's very frustrating because they're decent cooks, but are very touchy so you can't give your opinion. In their minds no one can cook better than them.
I heard that more often than not that's sort of a self-fulfilling prophecy. People hear "some people are genetically predisposed to being unable to appreciate cilantro", then they try it, don't like it and think "oh, I must have that gene." Fuck that, man. Cilantro is one of the best tastes on the whole planet. I wanna be mummified and have my whole guts packed with that shit.
I like cilantro, doesn't taste like soap to me. Does that mean I have hispanic in my ancestry? I'm whiter than white.
Yknow when a Ladybug lands on you?
And you let it crawl on your hand/arm for a little?
And then you smell it?
Thats what cilantro tastes like.
>Exposure, plain and simple. Scientists tell us that aversions fade away when we eat moderate doses of the hated foods at moderate intervals, especially if the food is complex and new to us. (Don't try this with allergies, but don't cheat either: few of us have genuine food allergies.) Exposure works by overcoming our innate neophobia, the omnivore's fear of new foods that balances the biological urge to explore for them. Did you know that babies who are breast-fed will later have less trouble with novel foods than those who are given formula? The variety of flavors that make their way into breast milk from the mother's diet prepares the infant for the culinary surprises that lie ahead. Most parents give up trying novel foods on their weanlings after two or three attempts and then complain to the pediatrician; this may be the most common cause of fussy eaters and finicky adults--of omnivores manqués. Most babies will accept nearly anything after eight or ten tries.
>le putting words in my mouth face xD
I like to try everything, popular and obscure. However I drink to drink, not to show people how sophisticated my taste is.
I'm under no delusion that the specific brand of indie label piss that is produced within 150km of one flyover town is better than every other brand of indie label piss everywhere else. I'm sure they're all nice but be realistic.
It's the same thing as sport teams. If that sort of that appeals to you then that's great but it's utterly meaningless.
Some supermarkets have packaged herbs for people who don't want to use dried or too lazy to care for a potted plant.
Either way using that amount of rosemary or any herb for one dish is absurd.
These are amazing, go die.
That texture though
>>raw bell pepper
Do you even salad?
Ok, not asian either.
What? this list gets pleber and pleber
Who? what? ok, agree there.
Meh. not that weird.
Who hates lemongrass? Did your daddy beat you with it or something?
>>raw ginger or very powerful ginger flavor
Dude, you'd die in Thailand or anywhere in east asia.
It's the worst of all possible hot sauces
you use very little of it for sushi and drench it in soy sauce, but it still tastes literally like shit. From a dehydrator.
I've tried so many of them. Even flavoured ones. Dried tomato tofu was okish. It's usually only edible when you deep fry it. which is stupid.
the bitter taste is in the peel
What would the difference be between the shit talker and the instigator?
>when you order a two ways and there are three pieces on the plate
Cantaloupe makes me retch. Always has.
But the other melons I remember trying were alright.
it tastes like soap to me
[spoiler] and i like it [/spoiler]
Prosciutto. Just stop. Stop eating it with your pinkie up in the air. It tastes like old cold cuts. You think you're fancy now. You think you got some class now, you idiot? Tch..it's like I don't even know you anymore, man. You've changed.
I've never heard of that meme, but my brother, father, aunt (on my dad's side) and I all really dislike it (that's everyone on that side, very small family). Everyone else seems fine with it. And it wasn't just because it was mentioned before the others tried it, this only came out recently in a restaurant and each of us was like 'I thought I was the only one who dislikes it, everyone else seems fine with it'. Maybe there is something to the genetics argument.
>drinking hot coffee with a straw
>overpriced tiny food served on a massive wooden block with a thimble of beer
how do they keep getting away with this?
