The Duchess of Sussex has partnered up with a friend and chef for a new charity project, Archewell has announced. Meghan shared with Chef José Andrés the recipe for her Lemon Olive Oil cake for his new book, titled ‘The World Central Kitchen Cookbook: Feeding Humanity, Feeding Hope’.

In the books’ pages, she will be joined by former US First Lady Michelle Obama – who shared a recipe for Breakfast Taco – and celebrity chef Guy Fieri among others.

Mr Andrés, the founder of the World Central Kitchen (WCK), collated in his book a series of stories and recipes from famous fellow chefs, local cooks and friends of the non-profit organisation – such as Meghan and Prince Harry.

The Duchess and the other authors of recipes have donated their proceeds to support the emergency response provided in disaster-hit areas by the charity.

The WCK feeds communities and creates supporting hubs where natural disasters or humanitarian crises have happened.

The announcement by Archewell, the organisation co-founded by Meghan and Harry in late 2020, said the Duchess is “proud to have contributed a recipe”.

Meghan’s Lemon Olive Oil cake had already become famous in March 2021, when she sent one to a group of female restauranteurs who had decided to partner up with WCK to provide meals to their community at the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

The WCK has been one of the first organisations to have partnered up with the non-profit arm of Archewell.

Most recently, this collaboration has supported the development of four community relief centres around the globe, Archewell said, and meal distribution efforts in Ukraine.

Mr Andrés has vocally expressed his support for the Duke and Duchess in the past, including in a piece he penned for Time in 2021, the year in which the magazine included the two royals in its 100 most influential people list.

Praising the Sussexes, the chef wrote at the time: “That’s not what Harry and Meghan do, or who they are. They turn compassion into boots on the ground through their Archewell Foundation.

“They give voice to the voiceless through media production. Hand in hand with nonprofit partners, they take risks to help communities in need—offering mental-health support to Black women and girls in the US, and feeding those affected by natural disasters in India and the Caribbean.”

This isn’t the first time Meghan is involved with a recipe book, as she famously supported and wrote the foreword for Together, the cooking book released in 2018 to raise money for the Hubb Community Kitchen.

Meghan’s latest charity project comes a few days after she stepped out to celebrate International Women’s Day.

The Duchess, who campaigned for gender equality and women’s rights even before meeting Harry, visited Harvest Home, a Los Angeles-based organisation providing housing, mental wellbeing support and classes to expectant mothers overcoming tremendous challenges – such as homelessness or domestic violence.

During her visit, Meghan helped create a pop-up baby boutique, host a lunch and made a donation.

News of the recipe book also comes amid speculation the royal may be reviving her successful lifestyle blog.

Details filed with the US Trademark and Patent Office suggested the Duchess got the preliminary approval to bring back The Tig, which was founded in 2014 and closed in 2017, months prior to her Royal Wedding.
