PIPPA Middleton is picking up a pen again - this time to write a monthly column for a British supermarket magazine.

"Pippa's Friday Night Feasts" will feature in the free Waitrose Kitchen magazine from April.

The column will include casual dining ideas and recipes, according to a press release from the publisher.

"Pippa 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," editor, William Sitwell said.

"Readers will love her relaxed and easy entertaining ideas which will help with the preparation for all sorts of occasions."

Pippa, the younger sister of Kate Middleton, said she's excited to share her "passion and enthusiasm for food and entertaining."

Pippa shot to fame after being watched by the world as the Duchess of Cambridge's bridesmaid at the April, 2011 Westminster Abbey royal wedding.

Her first book, Celebrate, a basic party planning guide, was widely slammed for its simplicity and has recorded struggling sales.

Among its tips is advice for the organisers of Christmas parties: "choose if you can, a Christmas-themed menu. A turkey, for example, can be perfect for large gatherings".

In a blog on The Spectator, Pippa admitted she has been "much teased" over the hardcover.

"But in my defence, let me say this: Celebrate is meant to be a guide to party planning and, as such, it has to cover the basics. If I were to write a cookery book, for instance, I would be compelled to say that to make an omelette you have to break at least one egg."
