About Johannes Riffelmacher | Thomas Kosikowski

Johannes Riffelmacher and Thomas Kosikowski

Johannes Riffelmacher discovered a passion for cooking growing up in his parents’ kitchen in Bavaria. His second greatest passion is surfing, and he’s traveled to various surf spots around the world since he was a kid. He most recently worked as a senior art director at Jung von Matt, a German advertising agency, where he developed campaigns for Mercedes Benz, MTV, and Ricola. Thomas Kosikowski is a photographer whose style has been most shaped by skateboarding, rap, and graffiti. He and Riffelmacher have been cooking together for friends, family, and anyone else who wanted a taste for years. Their desire to work together on a project that included both cooking and travel led to their first cookbook, Salt & Silver. @saltandsilver

Black Bean Burger

Easy. Healthy. Spicy. Vegan. And satiating as heck. That’s what you get from this inspired collision of ingredients that come together in the form of a veggie burger.
