Kukia’s Cookies

Posted by TIF 20 Jun 2011 No Comments

There are cookies. And then there are COOKIES. And then there are COOKIES with a conscience. Kukia’s Cookies, owned by Durhamite Kifu Faruq, are a different kind of cookie—different in all the right ways. Infused with lavender essence, Kukia’s Chocolate Chip Lavender Cookies (with or without pecans) have a concentrated, wholesome flavor and almost seem to melt stress away with each bite. A testament to the culinary lavender that laces each batch, once you go Kukia’s, you’ll never eat another chocolate chip cookie again.

More than a cookie company, Kukia’s Cookies is a mission to synthesize one woman’s passion for making organic and delicious food accessible to the masses and her dedication to a sustainable lifestyle. The way I see it, Kukia’s Cookies is best represented by two old adages. The cookies are made with 100% organic ingredients, hormone-free dairy, and local, farm fresh eggs because, after all, “You are what you eat.” Kukia’s Cookies also donates to local non-profits, such as Green Space Initiatives, an organization that opens access to naturally grown food in communities of color—after all, “I am, because we are.”

Charged by convictions for food justice and satisfied taste buds, Kukia’s Cookies is an admirable company that is undoubtedly going to blow up in our lovely foodie town in no time. Most importantly though, the cookies are chewy-fragrant-chocolatey-lip-smackin’ good—just like grandma used to make. (Just in case you were wondering, Kukia is a blend of two words, Kuia and Kuku which mean grandmother in Maori and the Mapunzugun languages). At present, Kukia’s Cookies can be ordered online at kifu@kukiascookies.com. They are $15 a dozen (which comes out to be $1.25 per cookie, less expensive than any non-organic cookie you can buy in any bakery or coffee shop in the area). Orders can be picked up each Saturday in the old Durham Bull’s Stadium Parking Lot.
