I’m sorry to say that preliminary field trials of the Cuisine Perel cilantro citrus oil were a big disappointment and I withdraw my endorsement of this product. It in no way compares in flavor to the Consorzio cilantro oil in flavor, and when I said it was delicious I was fudging the data, embarrassing as that is to admit, in much the same way as those Pitt researchers did recently.
But I’m making a clean breast of it now; don’t waste your money on Cuisine Perel cilantro oil! I admit I was overexcited when I bought it and couldn’t wait to share my discovery with all my readers, so I reported on it before I had actually tasted it. It’s the Consorzio cilantro oil that smelled and tasted so strongly of fresh cilantro and imparted the flavor to everything I used it in, both cooked and uncooked. The Cuisine Perel, at least so far, smells and tastes only slightly of citrus and not at all of cilantro. Huge letdown. Perhaps a write-in campaign to the Consorzio folks begging them to reconsider the discontinuation of the cilantro oil is in order.
