Winner of the U.K.'s André Simon Special Commendation Award

celebrates the power of cooking to connect us to one another.

In the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower fire in London, a group of local women gathered together to cook fresh food for their families and neighbors.
Over the chatter and aromas of the kitchen they discovered the power of cooking and eating together to create connections, restore hope and normalcy, and provide a sense of home. This was the start of the Hubb Community Kitchen.
Together is a storybook of this West London community, showcasing over 50 delicious recipes from the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen and including a foreword by HRH The Duchess of Sussex.
The women invite you to make their favorite simple dishes—many handed down over generations— from the Middle East, North Africa, Europe and Eastern Mediterranean for you and your loved ones.
Every dish tells a story of history, culture and family, and each has been developed to use few ingredients and easy methods so that anyone can cook these personal recipes.
Together features mouthwatering recipes including Green Chilli and Avocado Dip, Coconut Chicken Curry, Eggplant Masala, Persian Chicken with Barberry Rice, Caramelized Plum Upside-Down Cake, Spiced Mint Tea and lots more.
This stunning charity cookbook is a homage to life, friendship and togetherness.
A portion of the proceeds from the sales of this book will help the Hubb Community Kitchen to strengthen lives and communities through cooking.
The Hubb Community Kitchen in London is a group of women who have come together to prepare fresh food for their community.   After being displaced following the Grenfell tower fire, some of the local women needed a place to cook fresh food for their families. They began to use the kitchen at the Al-Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centr...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this cookbook Received this book as a gift, working my way through it. Really like reliance on fresh vegetable and different spices. Will never buy store hummus again, and we are addicted to the tuna, olive and sun dried tomato loaf. Some of the ingredients can be a challenge to find, such as dried Persian limes, but I found an ethnic grocery store in a nearby city where I was able to source ingredients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great concept, great recipes. I work in a multicultural school and am always asking for advice/recipes from the staff and parents when it comes to cooking authentic recipes from the Middle East, Indian regions and Asia. This book has some lovely recipes, easy to access, savoury and spicey. It is a tribute to the strength of the women who survived the Grenfell Fire and continue to heal as a community. The Duchess of Sussex gives it the attention for sales, but in the book itself, she steps back and the women take centre stage. If you only purchase groceries in a large chain grocery store, the spices in the tiny bottles will be expensive, so walk away because those spices are usually old as well. Go to smaller Asian, Indian or Middle Eastern grocery stores to find them. Bring the book to show what you are looking for if you aren't sure. They will know. Avoid buying large bags unless you are cooking with them every day. Or go to bulk supply stores that are busy (regular overturn). Spices are fresh and you can buy what you need. Cook as long as the recipe says. Spices need to be cooked thoroughly. I have already made the Spiced Lamb and it is delicious. You could easily substitute stewing beef in the recipe. Our community has recently suffered a fire in a high rise and this book has inspired us to bring in the families to our small school kitchen so they can cook their own meals instead of constantly eating out while living in hotels and community centres.

Editorial Reviews

Notable Press & Accolades:10 Celebrity Chef Cookbooks for Everyone on Your Gift List —Bravo TV: The Feast “Together touched the core of my soul. These women came together after the Grenfell tragedy to cook for family and friends. Their stories are ones that are never usually heard and their food – beautiful and delicious home cooking – is not ordinarily seen. It’s a rare and beautiful book which shows the power of cooking and eating together as a way to connect, share, love – and in this case, grieve and heal."—Meera Sodha, André Simon Awards assessor and author of Made in India
