Course Coming Soon!

Welcome friend, I’m Chef Maitri! For 20 years, I was a scientist researching cancer, Alzheimer’s and women’s health issues – all of which run in my family. I also started and sold 2 biotech companies, and raised 4 kids. After seeing the overwhelming evidence for a whole foods plant-based diet and meditation to help all of these diseases, I became a chef and zen practitioner. I make plant-based food that loves you and heals you, like a warm hug. If you’re new here, you might like this quick guide on where to start with plant-based food.

“We should consume in a way that helps to reduce the suffering of living beings and that way we can preserve compassion in our heart.”

— Thich Nhat Hanh

All proceeds from maitricooks.com go to the Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation to support the work of Plum Village, which has been such a huge help to so many people during the pandemic.

We are all connected. You are not alone. There is a way to transform suffering and fear into compassion and love.
