I have come to learn that people are divided into two contrary and irreconcilable camps.  Those who love curries and those who do not.  A simple test of where one lies in this divide is based on their willingness to travel to India, the land which has provided us with the vast array of flavors found in curries.  Those who tend not to favor curries are unlikely to make the journey.  The Frenchman Jean Baptiste Tavernier proved to be the exception for although he made five trips to India he found the food disagreeable as it was ‘so full of ginger and pepper and other spices.’
