The Duchess of Sussex has been busy in the kitchen

Life in the Royal Family is always filled with events and engagements, but despite her busy schedule, HRH The Duchess of Sussex finds time to do volunteer work. One of the projects she contributed to was a communal kitchen located at the Al Manaar Centre in West London. Last year, following the Grenfell Tower fire, a group of women gathered there so they could prepare fresh food for their families, friends and neighbors. Out of their efforts a cookbook was born

Our Community cookbook

The Duchess is supporting the new charity cookbook, Together: Our Community Cookbook (US edition, UK edition can be found here), which celebrates the power of cooking to bring communities together. The book showcases over 50 recipes from the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen and including a foreword by the Duchess.
The women invite you to make their favorite simple dishes-many handed down over generations- from the Middle East, North Africa, Europe and Eastern Mediterranean for you and your loved ones.  Every dish tells a story of history, culture and family, and each has been developed to use few ingredients and easy methods so that anyone can cook these personal recipes.  A portion of the proceeds from the sales of this book will help the Hubb Community Kitchen to strengthen lives and communities through cooking. 

Update: The Duchess's good friend, Serena Williams, posted her support and appreciation of this project.
