Majed Ali, a Dubai-based self-taught baker, food blogger, photographer, and recipe creator’s growing influence in the culinary world with multiple eminent awards and recognition, has brought him to the industry’s forefront.
There are a few people who believe in only running behind their personal gains and success, whereas a handful are those who work towards a greater purpose, putting in every possible effort to add more value to people’s lives through their products/services or work. It is essential to put more light on the journeys and success stories of all these individuals, who leave no effort untouched to bring their creative visions into tangible reality and offer the world to “savor” something unique.
One of the finest examples of a self-driven and determined professional in the culinary world is Majed Ali, the man who created “The Cinnaman,” which is today one of the most loved food blogs for food lovers and budding chefs.
Majed Ali is a Dubai-based self-taught baker and recipe creator who always wanted to add more value to people’s lives by creating recipes that could easily stand out in people’s favorite recipe list by adding a twist of his Middle Eastern influence.
Over the last ten years, he has created a noteworthy journey in the culinary world for his love for baking and recipe creations, which has excelled with his food photography, styling, and blogging skills.
Right from his introduction to a banana bread by a colleague to his self-discovery and exploration of the world of food, he remained committed to finding his path in the culinary industry and delved into varied online videos, cookbooks, and more to sharpen his skills in creating the delectable recipes he has to his credit today.
Even when he knew that culinary education wasn’t easily available for everyone and that females had a more dominant space in the industry, he chose to give it his all and blindly followed his passion for baked goods to become the remarkable male baker and recipe creator he is today. The accolades and awards he has received, like three Saveur Blog Awards and features in top media outlets, are a testament to his unwavering commitment to his craft, resilience, and pure love for creating varied recipes.
As he saw his confidence in his palette rising, he started his YouTube channel and ensured to imprint a part of himself with each recipe by incorporating his Middle Eastern influence. This helped him take steps further and improve his food presentation, paving the way for a side hobby of food photography, styling, and blogging.
Majed Ali became more determined to help reach his recipes to world audiences and food lovers, and that’s how The Cinnaman became a bilingual food blog in Arabic and English. “My food blog is for all those who love to express their personalities. For me, ingredients are not only about creating meals; they are about feeding the soul.”
The Cinnaman stands different as a food blog because it is driven by Majed Ali’s commitment to sharing his Middle Eastern flavors with the world.
