@Alex: Many people who don't like cilantro are so-called supertasters, whose sensitivity to certain flavors, particularly bitter ones, is unusually strong. See, e.g., http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=98695984

A predisposition to find cilantro revolting has been found to be genetic. My mother, sister and daughter share my distaste for it. My mother will get violent with a waiter if cilantro is a dish she orders having first asked if it contained the herb. My wife thinks we're all crazy and loves cilantro.

Cilantro is one of those hotly debated tastes that, upon tasting it, made me wonder where all the debating heat and adamancy comes from. It's not like Icelandic hákarl or sumthin'. It's that "no accounting for" thing...in decorating, art, music or herbs.
  Fri. 3/6/15 11:28am tr//sh:

@b/p What does hákarl taste like??
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/6/15 11:28am Alex In Illinois:

@Doug: the NPR article does not conclude that Supertasters are the ones that hate cilantro. Instead in concludes that it is the smell that makes a difference, and the cilantro haters are not detecting the aromatic compounds, but are detecting mostly the malodorous unsaturated aldahydes compounds. The article does conclude that it is genetic.
