Refugee Women’s Alliance
Recipes for Refuge is a delicious and unique collection offering readers an experience that transcends mere cookery. These are the recipes that are passed down from mother to daughter, father to son, recipes that connect these global refugees to the place they once called home. Included too are the journey stories of these transplanted cooks, tracing harrowing flight from Saigon as it falls, years spent in Kenyan refugee camps, and dangerous border crossings to escape the Eritrean-Ethiopian conflict. Most importantly, Recipes for Refuge celebrates and supports Refugee Women’s Alliance, founded by and for refugee women, including many of the cooks featured here. Established in 1985, ReWA is a non-profit, multi-ethnic organization that promotes inclusion, independence, personal leadership, and strong communities by providing refugee and immigrant women and their families with culturally and linguistically appropriate services.
We are honored to be celebrating Refugee Women's Alliance and their cookbook Recipes for Refuge. Seattle Times food writer Rebekah Denn will be in conversation with Mahnaz Eshetu, executive director at ReWA, and one of the recipe contributors. Please note the author will sign copies of the book purchased at Book Larder.
