Despite the fact that she's expecting a baby and has been traveling a lot, Meghan Markle has embraced several opportunities to cook for others. She recently whipped up her signature banana bread while in Australia with Prince Harry, and she hosted and cooked for her first royal luncheon not long before that. That party was in honor of her contributing the foreword to a new charitable cookbook called Together: Our Community Cookbook, which benefits the Hubb Community Kitchen, formed in the wake of last year's deadly Grenfell Tower fire in London.
She's maybe picked up an English accent, but she's still an American expatriate, so the new Duchess of Sussex rejoined her friends from the Hubb Community Kitchen last week to cook a Thanksgiving Eve dinner — for 300 hungry people in need.
Meghan worked on three recipes from the book for the occasion: a roasted rainbow vegetable medley made with potatoes, squash, and various root vegetables; an Egyptian lamb dish called fattah, served with rice and pita bread; and Persian chicken with barberry-studded rice. Together: Our Community Cookbook features recipes from all over the world, including Indian samosas, Ugandan eggplant Masala, Middle Eastern kofta (meat kebabs), and a caramelized plum upside down cake from Algeria.
The Duchess of Sussex's first six months in the Royal Family have already left a legacy of nurturing and caring for others, and surely there's much more deliciousness to come.
