LONDON — The Duchess of Sussex is giving her backing to a cookbook from a community kitchen set up in the aftermath of London’s deadly Grenfell Tower fire.

The former Meghan Markle has written a foreword to a volume of recipes from the Hubb Community Kitchen. It was set up by women displaced when fire destroyed the west London high-rise in June 2017, killing 72 people.

The recipes from Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, and beyond reflect the diversity of the local community.
