Serena Williams praises Duchess Meghan's charity cookbook project

Duchess of Sussex launches Grenfell charity cookbook

Supported by The Royal Foundation and published by Penguin Random House companies, profits from the sales of the book will support the Hubb Community Kitchen, helping to keep it open for up to seven days a week and to widen its reach to others in the community.

Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle has thrown her support - and signature - behind a new charity cookbook as her first solo royal project.

"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".

Meghan first visited the kitchen in January 2018, before her May wedding, and has continued to make regular low-key private visits, according to the palace, which issued several never-seen pictures of Meghan cooking with the women at the centre.

They gathered together some favourite recipes in the book, with the proceeds helping to continue the work of the Hubb in supporting Grenfell families and others in the community.

The former Meghan Markle has written a foreword to a volume of recipes from the Hubb Community Kitchen.

Duchess of Sussex launches Grenfell charity cookbook
Meghan Markle has been making secret visits to women affected by Grenfell Tower tragedy

Meghan will be releasing a cookbook to raise funds for the families affected by the Grenfell fire.

Describing the atmosphere as "cozy and brightly lit", Markle writes, "The kitchen buzzes with women of all ages; women who have lived and seen life; laughing, chatting, sharing a cup of tea and a story, while children play on the floor or are rocked to sleep in their strollers". "At that time I thought it was a flying comment, and that was it, really".

The community kitchen is called "Hubb" which means love in Arabic. The proceeds will reportedly be managed by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Proceeds from the book, which will be released on Thursday in the United Kingdom, will support the Hubb Community Kitchen, helping it to stay open and to thrive, so it can widen its reach to others in the community and beyond.
