Count me with Julia Child; I think cilantro is vile, and anything it has touched now tastes like soapy aluminum foil, except worse. This is actually something genetic, probably like most tastes are. From what I have heard, somewhere between 8% and 20% of the population similarly detests cilantro. I don't like guacamole, either, and think avocados are awful -- but not disgusting the way cilantro is. One more thing: I think I'm taste-blind. There are people who are "face blind" -- they can see faces and their vision is fine, but they can't recognize faces at ALL. Similarly, if my wife asks me if I like this version of chile versus last week's or last month's, or her sister's, I am utterly lost. Only when it comes to stuff I detest like cilantro or coffee (smells like skunk to me) can I seem to recall tastes in any real way.
