A Cup of Culture & A Pinch of Crisis

Many people have been inquiring how we keep busy during the bitter cold winter months …. you know, those days not too long ago where it was an easy -20F outside and the pollution plus cold made outdoor activities a bit less appealing.

My solution was to find projects that kept me interested and indoors – sure, there was always work and teaching at the American University of Mongolia to keep me busy (and trust me, this winter it will for sure but more on that another day) but this past winter, I had the joy of working with an excellent group of editors from around the world in editing the first book published by the webzine Tales from a Small Planet.

And so we hacked away on our home computers with daily exchanges between editors in Mongolia, Mexico, Paraguay, and Turkey as well as with our writers from all over the globe and from all walks of life. Our book is now ready and available for purchase. I promise, you will not be disappointed – just read our press release below! And now, get shopping!

TalesTales from a Small Planet is delighted to present our first book of essays edited by our volunteer team and contributed by writers all over the world:

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.
