Meghan proved her love for cooking again this year, when she created a charity project with community members affected by the Grenfell Towers disaster.
The book, Meghan’s first solo royal project, features 50 of the Duchess’ favourite recipes created by women from Grenfell’s ‘Hubb Community Kitchen’, set up in the wake of the devastating blaze in June last year.
Meghan met women from The Hubb Community Kitchen who were using recipes passed down through generations to cater for families made homeless by the fire. It was this which gave her the inspiration for the book.
