What is currying?

Currying is similar to partial application but takes a slightly different approach.

The term “currying” derives from the name of Haskell Curry, the mathematician who did a lot of work on the theory behind currying. The Haskell programming language is also named after him.

The Python term “pickling” (serializing an object for later retrieval), is vaguely analogous to the culinary process it is named after. However, the term “currying” has nothing to do with food. Searching for parallels there will only lead to confusion.
