Fresh Cilantro

I have been growing fresh cilantro outside for a few weeks. I bought it as a plant, not seeds. It is very tall and the taller parts have flowers. Does this mean that part is not usable anymore. What should I do?

The flowers mean that it has bolted, which means that the leaves’ flavor is not as good. But, as a consolation with cilantro, the seeds are also the spice coriander.
