  1. Hey Parveen,

    Thanks for the awesome cookies. I sure they will go down as delicious treat for my flatmates. It was very encouraging to read your story. Remember it’s not the individual with impairments that needs to conform to society rather it’s society that needs to accommodate diversity this includes different individual’s abilities. Often people look at individual and say the problem lies with them but actually the problem is with the environment that doesn’t allow for diversity! Keep up the good work and never allow people to tell you that you can’t because you can!


    1. Thank you. Glad to hear that you enjoyed the cookies. Don’t forget to buy some more hehe 😉

  2. Dear Parveen,
    Enrique just gave me your cookies, the cookies made it all the way to Saigon in Vietnam. My team and I operate the Noir. Dining in the Dark, employing blind staff. We also have a restaurant and a flower shop employing deaf staff. In October this year we start a spa with blind therapists.
    Your cookies are awesome and my team and I are halfway the bag already. Just delicious or as we say in Vietnamese; qua ngon!
    On my next visit to Auckland I would love to pass by and say hello in person.
    Until then, xin chao!

    1. Xin chào Germ, cảm ơn bạn rất nhiều. It’s good to hear that you also employs people with disabilities, and I’m working as a part-time guide waiter in Dans Le Noir restaurant at the Rydges hotel in Auckland. I’m looking forward to seeing you in NZ at The Cookie Project Kitchen.
