Drummin’ Up Wontons is a small, local food company based out of Snohomish, WA that makes wontons; with uncommon fillings.
It all began at home from a sheer craving for some wontons. Growing up with a Korean mom (Nancy), Ed was able to have her wontons just about whenever he wanted; and they were always a huge hit at any gathering or party she brought them to. People would tell her that she should open up her own “Wonton House”, but she was already too busy running a business to take on such a task. Around 2010, when Nancy’s health was starting to fail, she was no longer able to cook, which is something she loved to do and was well known for. Ed and his wife (Amanda) got some of Nancy’s well known recipes, including her wonton recipe. Nancy’s four grand-kids enjoyed her cooking over the years, so Amanda took on the task of replicating some of her one-of-a-kind meals. After mastering what they named the “OG” (Grandma’s Original) and getting her stamp of approval, they started sharing them with family and friends.
After they both ate way too many OG’s, Amanda started to think about other things she could put into wontons. First, she made the Cherry Cheesecake, then Mac ‘N Cheese with Bacon; which were both amazing! After that she returned to the kitchen and just kept creating, and hasn’t stopped since…
They debuted their food at the Seattle Underground Market in October 2012. Thinking it would be a fun way to get some honest feedback from paying strangers, they were met with huge lines that lasted for hours. After that experience they decided to move forward with the business and you can now find Drummin’ Up Wontons at two farmers markets, local events, and they cater.
