You think you've got it tough? Pcheh, in Norway, black pepper (the strongest of such strange apothecary's herbs) is only ever used in sparing amounts, if at all, so as not to damage one's sensibilities. My grandmother, bless her strange soul, cannot eat onions because they are too spicy.

I have managed to get some Thai hole-in-the-wall to give me proper spicy food. Asking for "Thai spicy" rather than very hot seems to help, despite that being a very white people thing to say. Learning enough to actually approach something resembling a correct pronunciation of the dish also goes a very long way.

I, for one, actually haven't seen Demolition Man. So now I'm included in that conversation too.

In spice, no one can hear you steam (your veggies).

Y'all talking about spices like us white folk don't have any. Flour is far and above the best spice, with mayonnaise a close second. Nothing compares.

I know you're joking but a dusting of flour over fresh baked rolls is pretty spice, tbh

And black pepper is overrated here, at least IMHO.  It's good in some things, sparingly... kinda like oregano actually.

Some spices must be used in moderation.

For everything else, there's parsley~

... uh, I'm not sure flour is generally considered a... spice. It's certainly not a spicy one unless you've blended in peppers or somethin'. Not sure how legit sauces/condiments are in a spice competition, either, really...

There is white pepper, though, if you're talking coloration. Dunno what they do to peppercorn to make it but eh.

A relative of mine would say something like "make it as you would at home".

Thank you for the Splatoon memeage.

And I think white peppercorns are actually a different plant or something. Apparently they're used for people who are allergic to black pepper.

Lets talk cilantro. People are either pro-cilantro or anti-cilantro.

I don't really give a damn about cilantro either way. Don't try to use it, don't tend to care if someone else does.

I care a bit, and say I do care.  I like cilantro.
It's like oregano, too much is too much.

I know a couple other people with that. Nothing's helped by me saying that it's a shame and you're really missing out, but yeah... Sucks, man.

And I'm probably a bit on the overenthusiastic side when it comes to cilantro. My salsas generally have a large percentage of their mass attributed to fresh cilantro. Parsley wishes it had moves like these.
