Beginning in January, Dutchess Meghan Markle has been visiting women affected by the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire in London. The Duchess meets the women at the Hubb Community Kitchen to cook and share recipes.

The women will be releasing a cookbook entitled Together: Our Community Kitchen. According to a statement from Kensington Palace, Together includes 50 personal recipes featuring Middle Eastern, North African and Eastern Mediterranean dishes.
The book, which will be released Sept. 25, will feature a foreword written by The Duchess of Sussex.

The proceeds from the cookbook will go towards helping Hubb Community Kitchen operate seven days a week.

“Swapping family recipes and moments of laughter gave us a sense of normality and home,” reads the book’s introduction. “We named ourselves the Hubb Community Kitchen to celebrate the thing that we all feel every time we meet – hubb means love in Arabic.”

“It is a place for women to laugh, grieve, cry and cook together,” she the Dutchess. “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 is something we can all relate to…”

To celebrate the launch of the cookbook, The Duchess of Sussex will host an event at Kensington Palace on Sept. 20.
