    Curry is yummy and it is everywhere in the Bay Area.

    From the South Bay to North Bay, whether we are going out to eat Indian, Thai or Vietnamese food, chances are we are going to eat a dish filled with a lovely curry.

    It is that very reason that world-class chef Ranjan Dey, star of the PBS show "My India" and owner of New Delhi Restaurant, will break down the history and the stories behind curries from around the world.

    Dey will discuss the history of curry, including its spread and cultural effect on Southeast Asia.

    And the best part of the whole evening is that after the history lesson, there will be a large sampling of curries to try. Yum.

    The talk will begin Tuesday night at 6 p.m. in the World Affairs Council Building, 312 Sutter Street, 2nd Floor, in San Francisco. For tickets or more information visit the It's Your World Web site.
