I’m sitting in my office with my dear restaurant manager friend, M, and we’re bs-ing through the end of the day. I had a random food memory pop into my head. I was just chatting about my dinner of guacamole, and I remembered the VERY first time I made guac on my own. I kept thinking, “Something’s missing.. Something’s missing.” You know, three years later, I discovered Cilantro!? THREE YEARS! I went without cilantro in my guac for THREE years. M and I agree… cilantro is delicious!
I heard there was a genetic disorder where people believe cilantro to have a soapy taste? Ah… bless you google! http://www.yumsugar.com/Cilantro-Preferences-May-Genetic-2836241
I asked M what his favorite food memory was, and he said, “My Polish mother makes like 14 traditional Polish dishes for Christmas.” That’s incredibly dope. I hope my babies think of me when someone asks them about their food memories 🙂
