Instructor: Maggie Johnson, Cooking Instructor

My name is Maggie Johnson. I was adopted from South Korea with my twin sister at a young age to a wonderful American Family in Minnesota. My adopted mother was a fantastic cook who made delicous food from many different cultures. My adopted parents lived in and traveled to many different countries throughout Asia and Europe before they had children. My mother liked to expose my twin sister and I to the cultures and foods of the different countries she enjoyed experiencing. My sister and I grew up eating, Curry Chicken, Gazpacho and Tempura among many other types of foods. My mother exposed my sister and I to our Korean heritage as well by putting us into Korean Dance and buying Kimchi by the pound from the local Korean Deli for us. My twin sister and I also had a close circle of friends who also adopted from South Korea. Our Korean cousin Kim Johnson who married into the Johnson family and also some Korean friends of ours taught me how to make the traditional food from my original culture which has allowed me to share this tradition and cuisine with others!
