Meghan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex, has given her first project and it is for a great cause. Meghan has been continuously winning hearts on netizens.
Recently, she was seen supporting a cookbook that brings several communities together. This is her first solo project since the time she has become a member of the royal family.
According to a report by a leading daily:
In January this year, Markle met a group of women who gathered to cook twice a week in a communal kitchen at the Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre in London.
"I immediately felt connected to this community kitchen; it is a place for women to laugh, grieve, cry and cook together," Markle, who then continued to make regular private visits to the kitchen, said in a statement. The women who gather at the kitchen, call it the Hubb Community Kitchen. "Hubb" is Arabic for "love." The foreword to the cookbook which is being published soon by this community kitchen is also written by Markle. This move by Duchess of Sussex is winning hearts again, on the Internet.

Describing her first visit, she wrote that she asked how she could help.
“An apron was quickly wrapped around me, I pushed up my sleeves and I found myself washing the rice for lunch … All the aromas percolating in a kitchen filled with countless languages aflutter remains one of my most treasured memories from my first visit to the kitchen.”
She also added:
“I immediately felt connected to this community kitchen; it is a place for women to laugh, grieve, cry and cook together. Melding cultural identities under a shared roof, it creates 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 – something we can all relate to.
“Through this charitable endeavour, the proceeds will allow the kitchen to thrive and keep the global spirit of community alive.”
Describing her lifelong interest in the story of food, the Duchess revealed:
“One of my own favourite meals is collard greens, black-eyed peas and cornbread – a meal I would look forward to throughout my childhood: the smell of yellow onions simmering amongst a slow-cooked pot of greens from my grandma’s back garden; the earthy textures of peas; and a golden loaf of cornbread puff-puffing away to a browned peak in the warmth of the oven.”
