Following the Netflix documentary Harry & Meghan’s debut and the publication of her husband Prince Harry’s book Spare, Meghan Markle has had a busy few months.
The Duchess of Sussex is among a number of celebrities, including Michelle Obama, who are set to contribute to the Spanish chef Jose Andres’ cookbook, The World Central Kitchen (£25.77/$35). However, the former actress is continuing with her busy schedule.
A post on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Archewell Foundation website that read: “This weekend, longtime friend and partner of The Archewell Foundation, Chef Jose Andres announced the upcoming release of The World Central Kitchen Cookbook: Feeding Humanity, Feeding Hope” confirmed Meghan’s involvement in the cookbook.
The cookbook, which provides food to communities affected by natural disasters and humanitarian crises, is an engrossing collection of tales and recipes contributed by well-known chefs, neighborhood cooks, and friends of the international nonprofit.
“Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, is pleased to have contributed a recipe, and all author proceeds will support WCK’s emergency response efforts.
“The Duchess sent a Lemon Olive Oil cake, which is included in the book, to a group of female restaurateurs in March 2021 who worked with WCK to feed their neighborhood during the pandemic,” according to the book.
The Duchess of Sussex previously collaborated with The Hubb Community Kitchen, a group of women who were displaced by the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire, on the charity cookbook Together: Our Community Cookbook.
For the cookbook, which featured 50 recipes from the west London neighborhood, she wrote the foreword.
Cooking has always been a passion for the former Suits star, who frequently posted recipes on her blog The Tig, which was deleted in 2017 after she became engaged to Prince Harry.
One who “not only loves but also appreciates the art and skill that goes into making good food,” as Meghan put it before closing The Tig.
One of Meghan’s favorite meals is Sunday dinner, and she enjoys preparing a large meal for her loved ones.
“I enjoy Sunday suppers a lot. The thought of getting together with friends and family on a Sunday for a hearty meal, whether we’re eating lamb tagine, pot roast, or a hearty soup, makes me feel comforted,” she said in an interview with Today.
On Sundays, I like to prepare slow-cooked meals like chicken adobo in the Filipino style. Combine garlic, soy sauce (or Bragg Liquid Aminos), vinegar, and possibly some lemon juice, then let the chicken soak in that sauce in a Crock-Pot until it falls off the bone.
