All the World Loves a Curry
All the World Loves a Curry

Talk by Colleen Taylor Sen

Curry is one of the most widely used and misused terms in the culinary lexicon. Outside of India, the word curry is often used as a catchall to describe any Indian dish or Indian food in general, yet Indians rarely use it to describe their own cuisine. In her new book  Curry: A Global History,  Colleen Taylor Sen  answers the question, "What is curry?" by giving a historical and descriptive account of a dish that has many incarnations. Copies of the book will be on sale, with the proceeds going to the CHC.

In her illustrated talk, she will describe the origins of curry and how it has been adapted throughout the world. Exploring the curry universe beyond India and Great Britain, she will discuss the elegant, complex curries of Thailand; the exuberant curry/rotis of the Caribbean; kari/raisu, Japans favorite comfort food; Indonesian gulais and rendang; Malaysias delicious Nonya cuisine; and exotic Western hybrids such as American curried chicken salad, German currywurst, and Punjabi-Mexican-Hindu pizza.

Bhabis Kitchen is one of Chicagos most acclaimed  IndoPak restaurants, reviewed in the Chicago Tribune, The Reader, and the Smithsonian Magazine.
