Meghan Markle’s first solo project as a Duchess features things that she’s worked with in the past: cooking and helping out fellow women. The Duchess of Sussex will help put together a cookbook that features recipes from women affected by the Grenfell Tower fire, a devastating tragedy that took the lives of 71 residents.
The book called Together: Our Community Cookbook celebrates the healing power of cooking, and it’ll be released on September 25th. It features a foreword penned by Markle and over 50 recipes from survivors of the fire. Kensington Palace explains that the proceeds of the book will be donated to the Hubb Community Center, who in turn will continue to feed and serve the families affected by the fire.
The Hubb Community Kitchen is a place for women to laugh, grieve, cry and cook together. Melding cultural identities under a shared roof, it creates a space to feel a sense of normalcy – in its simplest form, the universal need to connect, nurture, and commune through food, through crisis or joy – something we can all relate to.”
Markle first started visiting the Hubb Community Kitchen when she first moved to London on January 2018. According to Kensington Palace, she still makes regular visits and is very interested and inspired by the women’s work.
