Coriander: you hate it, or you love it. One person cannot get enough of it, while the other thinks it tastes like soap. How this is possible, seems to be determined in our genes. For coriander lovers the herb has a typically fresh and still sweet flavour.
Coriander has been regularly found in many ancient civilizations over centuries. Coriander was grown in Israel long before Christ. The Romans already used coriander, as the Egyptians did. In the 5th century AD, coriander was also introduced and spread in Asia.
