My name is Mama Bongi and I make the best choc chip cookies! What makes me happy is to see people happy when they are enjoying my cookies.
I live at and work in the kitchen at my mentor’s office in Wynberg Chelsea (which is a house). Working for Amazing Spaces is my other job when I am not baking, and the ‘gals’ there have helped me to grow the Mama Bongi cookie business. This allows me to send money home to my children (who I had to leave at home in Zimbabwe).
I always dreamed of being a teacher and this cookie business allows me to lift up and teach others to cook with me. I am now able to improve my kids’ lives as well as those around me. This is a dream come true for me. I have also always loved cooking.
I started by making cookies for Amazing Spaces’ clients and they loved them so much that they started asking if they could buy them. This is how the idea of Mama Bongi’s cookies was born. I am grateful every day for the opportunities and love shown to me, and want to be able to pay it forward to others.

Thank you Mama Bongi for the most delicious choc chip cookies. Soooo yummy! ? Think I’m hiding them from the family. ? Please support this wonderful lady from Amazing Spaces.
Mama Bongi’s Cooking amazing chocolate chip cookies! So Delicious! ? Perfect for Mother’s Day tea and basically any day. I will be back! ❤️
Best Choc chip cookies I’ve ever had by a long way. Store-bought don’t even come close to these. What a pleasure meeting Mama Bongi as well!
I work long hours so having someone else cook dinner is a necessity. Mama Bongi arrived last week and taught my amazing Nanny how to make a quinoa salad and a chicken curry. The food was delicious and Precious says she really enjoyed it. I’ve already booked Mama B again for another two dishes.
