Writers Abroad Announces Publication Of Their New Book (Hello Stocking Stuffer!)

This week the virtual writers’ group, Writers Abroad, announced the publication of their second anthology Foreign Flavours, which contains 64 contributions, including 33 recipes, from ex-pat writers from around the world.

If you’re not familiar with the group, Writers Abroad is an online writing group, founded in 2009, which provides a forum for ex-pat writers to exchange ideas, views and news on writing and to offer support and constructive feedback on each other’s work (Writersabroad.com).

All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to The Book Bus, a charity whose aim is to bring literacy and the joy of reading to children in the developing world. And if that’s not enough for you, Alexander McCall Smith, acclaimed author of The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency Series, has written the preface.

The book is available now for $14.83 here.

    This is THE book of the year. You must have a copy – or two – give to friends or family that way you give twice! What could be more satisfying?

    A culinary delight for lovers of good food and good reads all over the  world. Three copies on their way to me – one for our reading club, one to donate to the Almanzora Friends, our local ex-pat group and, by no means least, my very own copy.

    Looking forward to purchasing my copy (and some for Christmas gifts).  Look for my story about “Arni Kleftiko” (Bandit’s Lamb)

    In Ireland there was an old tradition of ‘Seanachai’ (Gaelic term pronounced shanakee meaning storyteller).  They would wander from place to place telling stories, reciting poetry and singing songs in return for bed and lodgings for the night.  A magical experience for those living in simpler times.  When I travel, I never tire of listening to other people’s experiences and soaking up stories full of human charm.  That magic is reproduced here with ‘Foreign Flavours’ by Writers Abroad.  I’m convinced they must all have a little of the Seanachai in them.

    Christmas is coming and this is the ideal present for foodies, armchair travellers and those who have been there and done that. A mouth-watering collection of stories and recipes.

    Got my copy yesterday and can’t stop dipping into it every since. Some very well-written short stories, great articles and I’ve already bookmarked some recipes. I’m going to order some more for Christmas presents.

    Stroll from a butcher’s shop in Spain to a tea-stall in Bangladesh; taste nsima, the staple Malawian dish, or futuristic olive substitutes from another planet; meet Mrs Garcia who sells the tastiest tomatoes in the south of France; discover bhelpuri from India and vincisgrassi from Italy…this beautifully illustrated collection of fiction, non-fiction and recipes is a true feast which has something for everyone.

  • Vanessa Couchman

    This book will make a great Christmas present – there’s something in it for everyone. And it’s all in a good cause. My copies are on their way: I can’t wait!
