Back in January, Meghan Markle visited Al Manaar, the Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre in West London, where she met a group of women who use the centre to prepare food for their families, Kensington Palace has revealed. Fast forward 10 months and the Duchess of Sussex has announced their will be releasing a cookbook in collaboration with the women of the centre.

“In January 2018, when I was settling into my new home in London, I met a group of women whose community had been affected by the Grenfell Fire,” says Meghan in a video shared to social media. “I immediately felt connected to this community kitchen. Like these women, I am passionate about food and cooking as a way of strengthening communities."

The cookbook, aptly named Together, will feature 50 recipes from Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean, written and cooked by the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen, and a foreword from the Duchess of Sussex.

“We called it the Hubb Community Kitchen, because in Arabic “hubb” means love, and we share love in here,” explains Zahira, the founder of Al Manaar. Press play on the video to see more. 

The proceeds made from the cookbook will go to The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and will be put towards the families of the Grenfell fire Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre
