Here’s What People are Saying

I absolutely love this hour of cooking. The professional approach and presentation of the teaching is superb. Engaging, fun & excellent for anyone. Every step, ingredient, spice, how to reduce waste, how to use items from your pantry etc. is all explained in great detail.

At the end of the session you leave with not only your master dish, but with more knowledge about making sustainable changes and better food choices.

I highly recommend this club!

I am really enjoying the Sunday Cooking Club with Puneeta at Maple and Marigold. She makes it so easy to follow along and make these fantastic foods with minimal effort.

Bonus.. these foods are also mood enhancers.
The whole class is a mood enhancer. I was afraid of cooking with sweet potatoes and voila.. the cook along helped me get over my irrational fears and I created something delicious.

Thank you Puneeta! I can’t wait for the next one.

The Sunday Cooking Club with Puneeta was such a joy to attend. It felt amazing to prep some healthy and delicious food for the week and to use flavours and ingredients that are out of my usual rotation.

Puneeta is a wealth of information and an absolute joy. I love her approach to making cooking easy but still yummy!

Hi, I’m Puneeta!


I’m the founder of

My goal is to reach a million people and help them create positive change in their kitchen every day. How? It’s all about small, individual changes in the way we cook and eat that can collectively have BIG impact.

I am a blogger, better food advocate and Toronto mom of two. I believe food is more than fuel and that the heart of the home beats in the kitchen. My blog started out as a love letter to India and Canada. Maple represents Canada and our life here, and marigold with its colour and significance in Indian culture represents my roots in India.

In 2020, I completed a Food & Mood certificate from Deakin University in Australia. Today, through my writing and work, I help families reconnect with what they eat, reduce their food waste and live in harmony with nature.

My food (and I) have appeared on a number of national and international media platforms like CBC Life, CHCH TV, The Social on CTV, Global News, Martha Stewart and CBC Radio.

Join me as we cook and meal prep using ingredients that are proven to boost our mood.

Not able to cook along? Bring your favourite cuppa and your questions to the Q&A and we will chat as the food bubbles away on the stove.
