  2. What is cilantro & where can I get it in the UK

  3. Cilantro is also called coriander and Chinese Parsley it is a leafy green herb that looks similar in appearance to flat leaf parsley but taste different. It is one of my favorite herbs. Sorry I've never been to the UK so I don't know where to buy it but in the US it is in every food market.

    Here is a link that includes info about the herb including the name in various languages:
