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.”
