Foodie Pseudery (24)
Coriander as life lesson:
Cilantro, I have realized, has always held a certain power over my life; before because I feared it, and now because I love it too much. …
And so it turns out that my mother was, in fact, right when she said that cilantro would be my coming-of-age, that in embracing adulthood and all its shades and shadows, I would love it too. I can begin to forgive my parents for the lies they told me in my childhood, and to realize that some of the most important parts of life are not necessarily the ones that are the most moral or the most clear.
