We all know that Meghan Markle is a bit of a foodie. She was crowned ‘the avocado whisperer‘ by her friend and former hairdresser, Daniel Martin, when he popped over for a little brunch with the Duchess of Sussex recently, and she has reportedly created an organic garden on the Frogmore Cottage grounds, filled with fruits, vegetable and herbs, so that she can pick her own food fresh from the garden.
‘I love to cook,’ she previously told Marie Claire.
‘I grew up with that farm-to-table dining before it was sweeping the nation. I do think there’s some value to really throwing yourself into food and embracing where it comes from.’
And this week an interview with the Duchess talking about one of her go-to comfort foods has resurfaced – although not everyone is convinced by her choice of snack.
During a chat with blog Eye Swoon in 2017, Meghan was asked about what she ’embarrassingly and secretly loves to eat’.
She said: ‘I love a french fry, but there’s no shame in that. But you know what I do really happen to love is that boxed macaroni and cheese.
‘I now buy the Annie’s organic one if I’m craving it, but I throw some frozen peas into it and have this gooey, simple childlike meal.’
Not everyone agrees with the former actress, however, and some people on Twitter have been airing their opinions.
‘Annie’s MAC n Cheese is gross,’ one person tweeted.
‘Do you think Meghan Markle, being American, will allow her royal baby to have Kraft Mac n cheese?’ another wrote.
Meghan has spoken about some of her other faves, including Filipino-style chicken adobo.
‘Whether we’re eating lamb tagine, pot roast or a hearty soup, the idea of gathering for a hearty meal with friends and family on a Sunday makes me feel comforted,’ she told Today.
‘I enjoy making slow-cooked food on Sundays, like Filipino-style chicken adobo.
‘It’s so easy—combine garlic, soy (or Bragg Liquid Aminos), vinegar, maybe some lemon and let the chicken swim in that sauce until it falls off the bone in a Crock Pot.’
