When Northern Michigan University graduate student Katherine Belliel first visited Turkey, she said her “soul felt like it had come home.” The Grand Rapids native ended up living in the country for 15 years, until a failed coup attempt convinced her to return with her family to the United States. Her time abroad inspired Belliel to co-edit Expat Sofra: Culinary Tales of Foreign Women in Turkey.
