Attainable, delicious home cooking to help us feel good and protect the planet.

Next Season to be announced. Join Puneeta at other workshops and events.

Join the Sunday Cooking Club to learn to cook delicious, good-for-you, good-for-the-planet food, learn about its connection with our physical health and mental wellbeing, and to HAVE FUN!

Together, during the 1-hr workshop we will make yummy, accessible dishes, and I will unravel the secrets of good mood foods. I will also show how through simple steps we can all use what we have and reduce our food waste. Above all, I will share ideas and tips to ease the burden of every day cooking.

People who cook with me say...

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.

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!

I just adored your Sunday cooking class. You have a real talent for keeping things interesting in the kitchen! The daal came out delicious and I am so pleased with my leftovers for dinner this evening.

I felt energized by the grounding exercise at the start of the class and extremely proud of myself for the meal I created with what I had in my kitchen!
