Do you feel like you need a third eye to decipher an Indian menu? And how do you even pronounce all those words that begin "bh"? Have you ever been yearning for that divine Indian bread, but the best you can do is to declare to the waiter/waitress "it was the puffy (flat) one", or "it was shaped like a horn". Has the image of Lassi the dog floated through your mind when you ordered your Indian yogurt drink?
Join Chowhounds for an Indian cuisine primer. Meet at the highly regarded Bombay Garden in San Mateo for lunch on Saturday, June 22, noon. We'll sample a large variety of dishes and desserts. You'll learn about:
* regional differences, most notably north compared to south
* religious influences, particularly Hindu and Muslim
* basic food vocabulary

Cost will be approximately $12. Please rsvp to me.
