Pippa Middleton is making another foray into lifestyle writing.

The younger sister of Prince William's wife, Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, will become a columnist for Waitrose Kitchen, a monthly magazine published by upmarket British grocery store Waitrose.

The column, called "Pippa's Friday Night Feasts," will feature what's billed as "casual dining ideas and recipes."

Her first column will appear in the magazine's April issue, on sale in Waitrose stores starting March 28.

The 29-year-old, who helps out with her parents' party supplies business, last year launched her first book, "Celebrate," a guide to entertaining at home that included recipes.

The book received largely negative reviews, with many complaining that the tips she offered were obvious and unimaginative. Middleton defended it by saying she had to "cover the basics."

William Sitwell, editor of Waitrose Kitchen, said in a statement that Middleton "will be an excellent contributor to the magazine, bringing with her a wealth of experience of entertaining, gained in part from working at her family's party business."

Middleton added, "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."
