It’s been sometime since I’ve shared articles here, but this one I simply could not pass by.
Cilantro is one of my favorite herbs. I use it all the time, and can only pity those that cannot stand it. I know these people, one of the girls I knew a few years back could not even stand the smell of it being cut, poor thing. So glad I am not like that.
That’s why I was happy to see this tribute to its Jewish roots. Actually, quite a bit of vegetables that are used these days all over the ‘Western’ world came to the table via Jewish wonderings. Would love to discuss more one day.
Additionally, the article mentions one of my favorite books about Jewish food history, where life and food get to influence each other to the end. Tragic and empowering at the same time.
Hope you will enjoy the stories as I do.
