Maple and Marigold | Sunday Cooking Club by Puneeta

Hello and Welcome!

I’m Puneeta, a food writer and better food advocate and I offer practical, delicious solutions to individuals and families to improve their personal health and also the health and prosperity of the planet. This is my real-life, earth-friendly, accessible approach that I’ve designed to unravel the secrets of good food for all.

My work is inspired by scientific evidence around food and its connection with climate change, the extensive research done between food & mood, coupled with my own personal experiences of how the food that tastes good and is good for us as individuals is also good for the planet.

A delightful and inescapable coincidence!

But navigating the world of cooking and eating and being weighed down by everyday decision-making around *good food* can be hard. I make it easy to shift kitchen habits with my recipes, strategies, and tips that help people cook more, use what they have, feel good, and live well.

MapleandMarigold.com, my blog, started as a love letter to India and Canada. Maple represents Canada and my life here. Marigold, with its colour and significance in Indian culture, represents my roots in India. What started as a blog on culture and family has evolved into a mission: to help create positive change in our kitchen and homes and in how we feel, and to make cooking and eating delicious and fun.

My goal is to help a million++ people make easy-to-implement, good-for-us, good-for-the-planet changes in cooking and eating that have the potential for enormous personal and collective impact.

Thank you for visiting my digital home and inviting me into your real one. I’m looking forward to cooking with you!

With gratitude and optimism,

Puneeta

    CHCH Morning Live - How to Shop Your Pantry to Reduce Food Waste Do you ever buy groceries only to realize you already have some of those food items in your pantry at home? One of the recipes that Chhitwal-Varma shared was a turmeric mac and cheese topped with crunchy oats. What I do with this to give it that pantry twist is that I use canned, evaporated milk because that’s another ingredient that people said they have tons of and they didn’t know what to do with it. To make the crunchy oat...
