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.

They truly are the BEST chocolate chip biscuits ever. I love a something sweet with my coffee. I call it my Oprah Winfrey 5 star moment (from her book “What I know for sure”). I would stash them in my car and when I had my daily take away coffee I had the deliciousness in hand. Thank you to mama Bongi for making my daily 5 star moment all that much better.
