Currying Culture: The impact of South Asian food on the larger cuisine of  the the multi-ethnic Caribbean
In the fabric of culture that is Trinidad, Guyana, Suriname many cultural  strands weave together to form a tapestry of larger ethnicity. Nowhere is  this more apparent than in the multiethnic cuisines of these societies.  But it is the South Asian/East Indian influence on the foodways of the Caribbean that is the gold thread shot through the design, shimmering, constant, and 
alluring. In Currying Culture, the third installment of the SAJA 
discussion series on Indo Caribbean peoples, moderator Ramin Ganeshram, will lead a panel discussion of chefs, food writers, and food entrepreneurs to discuss the larger social influence of East Indian cookery on the cuisine of the Caribbean.
