                                             refugee crisis




                                             Husband and wife team Alan and Katherine Strang were serving in the
                                             Refugee Support free shop in the Katsikas Camp in Northern Greece when
                                             they became inspired to create a cook book re lec ing the diversity of the
                                             refugees they met.
                                                “We got to hear many stories about the unimaginable terror and hardship
                                             these people have experienced that have made it impossible for them to remain
                                             in their homelands,” explains Alan. “We were amazed at the diŽference in food
                                             that was selected by the many naionaliies and cultures and so we began to ask
                                             what they planned to cook for themselves and what food they most missed.”
                                                Tastes & Tales From a Distant Homeland is a collecion of over 80 authenic
                                             homestyle recipes, inspiring thoughts, and heartfelt stories. The 192-page,
