Meghan Markle, the Duccess of Sussex, helped release a new cookbook and even wrote the forward for it.
According to Kensington Palace, the book is really a collaborate effort: Together: Our Community Cookbook features recipes and photographs from the Hubb Community Kitchen, a group of women who cook together twice a week at the Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre. (Hubb means “love” in Arabic.)
The group formed after their community was shattered in the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire, which caused 72 deaths. Needing a new place to cook when so many of their homes had been destroyed, their bi-weekly cooking fests helped the whole community heal in the wake of tragedy.
Meghan Markle has joined the women several times, sharing in their cooking and feasting, and befriended many in the group. While there she decided that they create a cookbook to show off their recipes and show what they are doing.
Proceeds from the book’s sales will go directly to the Hubb Community Kitchen.
The cookbook is a best seller in the UK but will be on sale in the US September 25th so pre-order it HERE
