Kensington Palace has confirmed that the Duchess of Sussex is supporting a charity cookbook featuring recipes from women whose community was affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.
On Monday, 17 September 2018, Kensington Palace announced via its social media pages that the Duchess of Sussex, formerly known as actress Meghan Markle, has chosen a new charity project undertaking.
The Duchess will be supporting the publication of a charity cookbook, titled “Together”, which has been compiled by women of The Hubb Community Kitchen in West London.
Kensington Palace posted photographs of the Duchess cooking alongside these women, as well as a short video promoting the cookbook. They wrote, “The Duchess of Sussex is supporting a new charity cookbook, which celebrates the power of cooking to bring people together… ‘Together: Our Community Cookbook’ showcases over 50 recipes from women whose community was affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.”
They later added, “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.”
Prior to her marriage to the Duke of Sussex, Markle ran a lifestyle blog, titled ‘The Tig’ which regularly featured restaurant reviews and a few of her favourite recipes.
