oil and coriander

Hi all,
I came across this site by chance,when I was looking up one of Jamie's recpies for my dinner party next week-end. I am not sure whether I will post much on the forums,unless I have something I would like to add,such as recipe ideas etc. In this,my first post,I would like to say something to jamie.
Jamie,in my humble opinion,you are the best chef in this country.There is one thing,I just have to have a little rant about.I think coriander puke  is the most disgusting herb on the planet. There are people I know,including myself,who puke when they smell it,never mind taste it. This and the fact I can't stand drizziling anything with oil and use it very sparingly for cooking only. I do love your food Jamie,just ditch the oil and the coriander!!! AS IF, lol

Re: oil and coriander

I'm with you with coriander (the leaves, that is, the seeds are a great spice). It's genetic, some peoples bodies reuse to recognize it as something that's edible, let alone palletable.

But how can you not like a good extra virgine olive oil? I'm not a fan of oily foods, but I'm crazy for the taste and aroma it brings to a dish. And I feel better knowing it's a bona-fide elixir of health, but to be honest, I would probablly drizzle it if it was toxic!

Re: oil and coriander

Hi TSR,
Coriander,seeds,leaves,dried or fresh, makes me physically sick when I taste it. I agree it is genetic,my son is the same. lol Absolutely love a good curry,when I make it myself,minus the coriander! When i cook with my own, or Jamie's recipes,guess what I leave out!
Yes extra virgin olive oil is fantastic to cook with.Again,both my son and I cannot stand any form of oil on our plates, or on our salads. I do love olives,although in my household, the oil is used for cooking only. SPARINGLY!   lol

Re: oil and coriander

I crunched through coriander leaves in a takeaway sandwich today and I was moved to log in regarding a thread I started a while ago.I am surprised there haven't been more contributions to my thread oil and coriander. There are so many people who are physically sick if they get a hint of coriander in their food,including myself. This vile herb ruins food due to its ability to overpower anything in its wake! There is actually a website named I hate coriander (cilantro)Guess who is a fully fledged member. A plea to all cooks,just stop it. I am so sick of picking coriander leaves out of everything in restaurants. Rant over, although I know I speak for a great majority of people.  puke

Re: oil and coriander

I love, love, love coriander. Agree that it's a case of love or loathe it, though. I always ask clients if they (or their family/guests) have any known food allergies/intolerances or dislikes.

I can't do much more than that smile.

Re: oil and coriander

Don't even think of eating Thai food. Everything appears to be laced with fresh coriander leaves (added at the end of cooking generally) or incorporates coriander root (e.g. Tom Yam). Luckily I don't mind the taste.

I tend to add chopped coriander leaf to most things I cook, whether it be Western, Indian or Thai. The advantage here is that if I run out, it's available everywhere (generally at no charge in my village).

Re: oil and coriander

I hate to admit it but i'm coming around to the nasty soap tasting leaf. Even going to grow it. At present I am able to tolerate it cooked into foods.

I find that it grows best in the cooler and less humid weather, Rabbit. Otherwise it bolts to seed. It's been terribly humid the past week. I'd wait until the humidity drops.

Suggest you grow from seed and stagger the sowing every three or so weeks (ie don't use all your seed at once).

Seed seems to grow (and last) better from seed than from planting out seedlings from the nursery/DIY mega-barn.
