RICE &... Series: Rice and Curry - Charting a Global Foodway in Asia

Join the Asian Studies Center and the Global Hub in exploring the foodways of curry. While people have been enjoying curry throughout Asia for centuries, the type of curry served in Japan is sourced from the 1850s as an import by British sailors and merchants who picked up their fondness for curry in India. Curry became a symbol of a modern, industrial nation and the preferred food at public schools, military academies, and the Japanese Navy.
