Never short on style or grace, Meghan Markle has become the latest object of the world’s affections and – since all eyes are on her – Meghan is making the moment count. The former actress, now Duchess of Sussex celebrated the launch of her first independent project as a royal, a new cookbook titled Together: Our Community Cookbook.
The collaborative cookbook was written in partnership with the Hubb Community Kitchen, a group of women who came together after the 2017 Grenfell Tower fires in West London to cook free meals for the families of those affected. It features a heartfelt forward by Meghan, and dozens of recipes that she helped to select. A portion of all cookbook sales will “help the Hubb Community Kitchen to strengthen lives and communities through cooking”.
“Working on this project for the past nine months has been a tremendous labor of love,” Meghan said in her speech at the launch celebration. Megan’s former lifestyle blog, The Tig, elegantly showcased this California native’s passion for food, cooking and the sense of community that it can cultivate.
Recipes in the cookbook come from one of London’s most diverse neighborhoods and many of them have been handed down over generations. From coconut chicken curry and koftas, to babaganoush and caramelized plum upside-down cake, recipes originate from the Middle East, North Africa, Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean. We’re especially eyeing the green chili and avocado dip and can’t wait to plate up recipes from the pages of this deliciously diverse cookbook all autumn long.
We love that Meghan is using her power of communication — and good taste — in such a meaningful way. What do you think? While you wait for your copy, check out Meghan’s favorite green beauty products here and her go-to coconut smoothie recipe here.
