A Cup of Culture and a Pinch of Crisis

Tales from a Small Planet: The Food Edition

Edited by Leah Evans, Katie Jagelski, Patricia Linderman, and Nicole Schaefer-McDaniel

A Cup of Culture and a Pinch of Crisis is a collection of essays from expats around the world who share their insights about food, personal growth, and the adventure of living abroad. Delve into new countries, traditions, and cuisines, from Mexico to Mongolia, as you learn how expats find the ingredients for their next meal, learn to love strange new dishes (like camel meat!), and bond with the people they meet over meals both exotic and humble. This book will make you hungry to travel abroad, or at least to settle for a taste of a different culture by trying one of the many included recipes. This is the first book published by Tales from a Small Planet, the web magazine where readers learn “what it’s really like to live there” in countries around the globe.
