Story of Mamma Fong& Who We Are

My name is Daphne and I am on a mission to bring back the authentic flavours of Asian cuisine. By introducing Mammafong® - the new generation of classic cookwares. I am honouring my culinary heritage and teachers; my grandma and my mother - Mamma Fong.

My earliest childhood memories of Hong Kong are countless summer vacations spent at my grandma’s home. She was a genius cook and turned out an abundance of food for the entire family. I would watch with fascination as my grandma prepared these delicious meals with such ease and care. 

I vividly recall the aroma of sweet and sour sauces simmering in the wok and the fragrance of five spice powder wafting through the kitchen. I was hungry as soon as I walked through the door! 

In contrast, Mamma Fong who was working full-time was always looking for a way to get dinner ready quickly and easily. Her solution: A delicious stir-fry served over a bed of hot steaming rice. We loved it! It was simple, fast and nutritious. My mom skilfully tossed the wok with ginger & peanut oil. The carbon steel wok hummed and crackled, releasing a familiar gingery aroma. She’d then add my favourite Chinese sausage and bok choy. Voilà! Dinner was served in no time at all. My mom always said “A good carbon steel wok is all you need in the kitchen!”

Some 20 years later, I’ve relocated to Sydney, Australia. One thing hasn’t changed, my hand hammered wok is still an essential tool in my kitchen. It is well seasoned after many years of use. Its surface has turned to a beautiful black patina and has become naturally non-stick. I love my traditional wok but I found it increasingly difficult to find one in stores. That’s when the idea to start Mammafong® was conceived. I want to celebrate the classic wok, and mark its significant role in Chinese culinary history. As well as the evocative aromas and flavours of Asian cooking.

I now have a two-year old daughter of my own who also loves stir-fry just as much as I do. I created the Mammafong® wok, an authentic hand-hammered wok crafted from carbon steel to pass down to her. That way, she too can learn about Chinese cooking and be proudly connected to her heritage. 

I hope you too can share my passion for creating authentic, traditional Asian cuisine at home with your own Mammafong® carbon steel wok.
