    I really admire Meghan for staying true to herself and her passion, that she continued with the good work she was doing before. This project is a ray of hope in a very dark time the whole world is going through... I can't wait to get this book. If I adored her before, I truly love her now.

    This charity cookbook, an "homage to life, friendship and togetherness," and fund-raiser, was written by a group of women who cooked favorite dishes of their homelands (the Middle East, North Africa, Europe, and eastern Mediterranean) after the Grenfell Tower fire in West London and which killed 72 people and displaced over 223 people in June, 2017.

This community of women became known as the Hubb Community, using the kitchen at the Al-Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre, where the women who worked there had been using the facilities to cook for the community. They all shared the kitchen, socializing, swapping recipes and cooking for their neighbors in their time of need. The recipes are easy and delicious -- I made the Coconut Curry Chicken and a vegetable samosa (with some altered ingredients depending on availability) -- both delicious! Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, wrote an introduction for the book.

    What a great cookbook! I have started to buy more cookbooks these days because I love to just make something to eat at home. It seems every winter like clockwork I go into hibernation mode (due to the weather) and I want to be able to make something that is filling, that is not going to have 1,000 ingredients, and that for the most part I can get done in an hour or less. "Together: Our Community Cookbook" is pretty great. I loved all of the color photos that accompanied the recipes, the foreword What a great cookbook!

"Together: Our Community Cookbook" is pretty great. I loved all of the color photos that accompanied the recipes, the foreword by HRH The Duchess of Sussex, and also the community members who added little personal anecdote before getting into the recipes. It made it seem as if a friend is sharing a recipe with you. This cookbook is divided into the following: Foreword; Introduction; Breakfasts; Snacks, Sharing Plates and Dips; Lunches and Dinners; Salads and Sides; Desserts and Drinks; Index; The Royal Foundation; Cooking in the Community/Recipe Notes; and Acknowledgements. Not going to lie, I don't recall one cookbook I currently own that gets into breakfasts. That is seriously my favorite meal of the day. Most of the recipes I have for breakfasts I just find on Pinterest. I do own Martha Stewart's one cookbook that gets into the type of meals that you can make depending on your cookware (crockpot, dutch oven, cast iron skillet, etc.) The first thing I am going to try though is the simple chocolate cake recipe. I really want something like this to enjoy over winter with a nice cup of coffee.

    I am not a royal watcher, but it's hard to miss all the bad blood her family spills, so happy for this young woman, she appears so well grounded and generous that I wanted to support her first endeavor. A beautiful cookbook with so many shinning smiling faces, I hope she beats all expectations in profits. Me, well, I will be trying some new recipes this weekend! From such a horrific tragedy I hope a Phoenix can rise from the ashes.

    I love the foreword and stories behind each recipe. I look forward to making some of them.

    This is such a missed opportunity! Where this is such an awesome cause, this book (difficult to call it a cookbook) is not worthy of what it’s supposed to embrace. I am a food lover of all types of cuisine and have far tastier curries in my recipe box. Where the pictures are lovely, this is just a coffee table book to further Meghan Markle’s agenda. Disappointed!

    I can’t actually rate this book until I’ve cooked some of the recipes but I am so excited and so hungry.

    A lot smaller book than I expected. Recipes appear to be very straight forward. Plan to try a few over the winter.

    For anyone who loves ethnic dishes this is an awesome book, each recipe has pictures. We already made a few of the recipes & all were delish! Highly recommend for all who enjoy cooking at home.

    Got this book on Christmas Day and immediately started reading and planning meals to make in the new year. I’ve shown several friends and family members this cookbook and we are planning a potluck dinner, with recipes from this book, in 2019!! Also, I’m happy the funds for this cookbook are going to such a good cause!!

    Fabulous charitable cookbook featuring diverse recipes from all over the world and benefitting the survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire in London. The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, writes the forward and has become an integral part of the community. There are great stories woven in with the delicious recipes like all the best cookbooks!

    Everything in this book looks super delicious, so I can’t wait to get cooking,baking, and eating. Also, the proceeds from this book go to support the Hubb Community Kitchen, so this is really a win-win purchase.

    I really like this cookbook. I've made several of the recipes, and they turned out great. There are more that I want to try. What a great way to raise funds, and also peruse many great recipes.

    It’s a beautiful cookbook. But with a large Lebanese community in my city, I’ll pass on making these recipes and I’ll just enjoy dining on them at local restaurants.

    This is a colourful cookbook of various Mediterranean, Middle-Eastern and North African recipes, brought together by newly retired TV actor Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex. While I haven't cooked any of them yet, most of the dishes look achievable. A few require more specialised ingredients, for example "injera", a large spongy flatbread from Ethiopia to serve with Misir Wot (lentils) and Gomen Wot (greens). Profits from the book go to the Hubb Community Kitchen to enable them to serve more peop This is a colourful cookbook of various Mediterranean, Middle-Eastern and North African recipes, brought together by newly retired TV actor Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex.

    What a wonderful project and partnership! It’s wonderful to see a community come together through food and love. As an ELL teacher I really enjoyed reading about some of the traditional dishes of my student’s families! I really want to try some of these myself in my newly remodeled kitchen! I want to start with the avocado dip since it received such high praises from Meghan and an Ethiopian dish! Meghan is already proving what an amazing royal she will be! ❤️

    Loved the format, the stories that introduced the recipes, the clear directions for how to make the food. Photography was spot on. It felt like you were reading more of a community diary of favorite dishes than a "cookbook". I will definitely be adding some of these to my favorites list. Was happy to see that some already were. The one thing that could bump it up to a five star rating is the addition of the nutrition breakdown (calories, carbs, etc.) which is very important to many people.

    Loved this cook book - the intentions behind it (to raise awareness about and money for the Hubb Community Kitchen in England), the beautiful pictures, and the delicious recipes provided by the Muslim women who use the kitchen. I am more likely to visit a restaurant than attempt some of these recipes (many which call for ingredients not typically in my cupboards) but I still want this book for my collection!

    This cookbook is absolutely amazing. The recipes are delicious and easy to follow, my favorite is the coconut chicken curry. I loved the stories and the thought that cooking together has the power to unite people and their communities. I love the foreword by The Duchess of Sussex and specially how the funds from this book are for helping that community. I am a fan of Meghan Markle, she is such a smart woman, because of her I am now a royal watcher.

    After the Grenfell Tower fire in London the community came together at the HUBB (LOVE in Arabic) Community Center to cook. Before she was a duchess Meghan Markle visited the women cooking there and inspired them to write a cookbook to help fund the center so it could be open more often. This is that cookbook. While I may not make the majority of these recipes, I did enjoy the little stories before each recipe that talked about the contributor of the recipe.

    This is a book about community connections. These are recipes shared by women from many countries, collectively cooking after Grenfell Tower fire. Many of the recipes have some background to put them in context, and some have humour. This is a wonderful book to read, with many interesting recipes to explore.

    Back to reading cookbooks again! I found that I really love reading them and this on is special. Each recipe is introduced by the woman who gave it - so it is personal and tells a story about family, food and being together. Plus, the recipes look great! Got this at Kensington Palace in October and cannot wait to cook with it!

    This was just a really great charity fundraiser cookbook. It was done well (I’m sure having Meghan Markle’s people in charge of production helped), heartwarming story, gorgeous pictures, the food looks delicious. There are some recipes I want to try, and it gave me ideas for what to do with that bottle of pomegranate molasses. Also I have a renewed need to find fenugreek seeds.

    I have never reviewed a cookbook before. This is a good one nice and inexpensive. There are a lot of recipes but they all seem to have a lot of ingredients. I can't wait to try some of these. I will start with the avocado dip that Meghan recommends herself. I have never reviewed a cookbook before. This is a good one nice and inexpensive.
