Title: Curry: The Spicy Story of the World's Most Popular Dish


Speaker: Colleen Sen


Description: Although curry had its origins on the Indian Subcontinent (where, ironically, the word was not widely used until recently), it has become global food par excellence. Its many incarnations include the elegant, curries of Thailand; the exuberant curry/rotis of the Caribbean; kari/raisu, Japan's favorite comfort food; South African bunny chow; Indonesian gulais and rendang;  British pub food and balti cuisine; Norwegian curried herring on toast; German currywurst; even Punjabi-Mexican-California pizza.  Colleen Taylor Sen will discuss the origins of this popular dish (while debunking some myths about Indian food), explain how and why it spread so far and wide, and speculate on the reasons for its continuing popularity.


Speaker’s bio: Chicago-based food historian Colleen Taylor Sen writes about the cuisine of the Indian Subcontinent. She is the author of the books  Food Culture in India (2004); Curry: A Global History (2009);  and Pakoras, Paneer, Pappadums: A Guide to Indian Restaurant Menus (2010).  Her articles on travel, food and restaurants have appeared in Travel and Leisure, Food Arts, Chicago Sun Times, Chicago Tribune,  Toronto Globe and Mail, and the proceedings of the Oxford Food Symposia.  She is currently writing a history of Indian food.
