Pippa Middleton said she was "delighted" to become a columnist for Waitrose's monthly magazine.

The Duchess of Cambridge's sister will pen a column called Pippa's Friday Night Feasts which will feature "casual dining ideas and recipes".

The first column will appear in the April edition, with Pippa featuring on the front cover.

Miss Middleton said: "I'm delighted to be writing for Waitrose Kitchen, a magazine that's always been a source of inspiration to me, for its extensive spectrum of food and beautiful style.

"My column, 'Pippa's Friday Night Feasts' will be an exciting opportunity to share my own passion and enthusiasm for food and entertaining and I can't wait to get started."

Waitrose emails customers after pork found in beef meatballs

Waitrose Managing Director Mark Price wrote:

We have now done tests on 40 of our meat products. No horsemeat was found in any of these tests.

We did, however, discover that in two batches of our essential Waitrose frozen British beef meatballs (480g), some of the meatballs may contain some pork.

Although the meatballs are safe to eat, pork is not listed as an ingredient and should not be part of the recipe.

Like me, I'm sure nothing is more important to you than the safety, quality and taste of the food you give your family and that is why I wanted to write to you directly in this way.
