Celebrating the half-year anniversary of the Royal Wedding
How time flies.
On May 19, Prince Harry and Meghan Markell were married in England and six months later we celebrated the halfyear anniversary with a very special lunch in River Hebert.
In the fall, it was announced The Duchess of Sussex was promoting a very special cookbook named TOGETHER - Our Community Cookbook. It tells the story of women in the Grenfell community and their response to feeding the community after a terrible fire. Markell was in Canada when she heard about the fire. The book show pictures and tells the story of her visit to meet the women. In the first week, the book sold 11,000 copies around the world.
I purchased the book, read the wonderful story and then circulated it to friends. They were invited to select a dish they would make and bring to lunch at my home on the half anniversary of the Royal Wedding.
The food was interesting and most of us needed to buy spices we had not used before, which made every dish a new taste.
At the end of the meal we discussed our response to the food and determined there were several we would enjoy sharing again and others ‘no need to make again.’ We also offered guesses on the birth date, gender, weight and name of the new baby.
A great day with friends enjoying a response to a global invitation - “let’s eat.”
