Kiki Johnson – Cookbook author, Recipe Developer and Food Photographer
My name is Kiki Johnson and I am a Calgary based freelance food blogger, cookbook author, recipe tester and recipe developer.
I was born and raised in Germany and spent a few years traveling Europe, Australia, Asia and Central America to broaden my culinary horizon and take cooking classes before I came to Canada with my husband.
I´m a trained language teacher and history major but food has always been my biggest passion. Now my career is to serve as a culinary translator/interpreter between my German and my Canadian readers.
I started my German-Canadian food blog “Cinnamon and Coriander” about three years ago.
The cinnamon speaks to me of my childhood, growing up in Germany with its rich baking tradition. It represents everything marzipan, and poppy-seed, and Christmas! The coriander represents the life I have lived since leaving Germany to go explore the Central American and South East Asian Kitchen. My life resembles one big culinary bucket list with more empty boxes than tick-marks, but then, that’s always the case when every time you experience something new you’re forced to add five more things you have to try to the list. Both in cooking, and more generally, in life.
In my recipes, I try to merge my European culinary heritage with New World influences.
