1. Seoul: Korean Cooking Class at a Local Home and Market Tour

Experience the Korean cooking and street food culture in Seoul and join an educational session for you or your group. An expert native Korean chef will assist you in learning the culture, ingredients, and how to prepare and create authentic Korean dishes. Begin the tour with a visit to a local market to buy fresh ingredients for the class and taste some local street food at the popular, yet less touristy market in Seoul. Absorb the vibrant atmosphere of the market and with your guide, find the ingredients which are required for the cooking class. After the market tour, head to the venue of your cooking class and learn a few Korean phrases while sipping a delicious welcome drink. Then it's time to make a variety of traditional Korean dishes. Your experienced chef-guide will show you how to make 4 dishes including Bibimbap (mixed rice with meat and vegetables), Dakgalbi (stir-fried chicken), Haemul-Pajeon (seafood and green onion pancake), and Doenjang-Jjigae (fermented soybean paste stew). Then, sit down to a meal and savor the delicious flavors of your creations. Enjoy the unique art of Korean food with a Hanjeongsik, a traditional Korean course meal with more than 10 side dishes which will be provided by your local host along with seasonal fruits and rice wine.

Junghee's class was amazing! She is fluent in english and very fun! She made me feel like I had known her for a long time :) I have currently lived in Seoul for 2 years, and was looking for an english friendly cooking class. The tour of the market included some great information and was such a fun time chatting with Junghee while we shopped and looked around. The cooking class made complex dishes seem so easy! Junghee has thought out every possible part of the class wonderfully. She is a great teacher and storyteller. The food itself was delicious and I feel confident I can cook any of it at home! She also takes pictures and videos for you while you cook. I highly recommend taking this course if you are looking to learn some things about korean culture, including food and language and more! Even as someone who lives in Korea, I found this class to be an amazing experience~ :)

I absolutely loved my cooking class with Junghee. She took us on an amazing market tour and taught us about traditional Korean foods while answering all our questions. She even helped us try street food from some of her favorite stalls. After the market we got to prepare an entire meal with multiple dishes right in her home. As a study abroad student who missed cooking in a home setting, this class was one of the most special experiences I have had during my time in Korea. We felt so welcomed by Junghee and absolutely loved listening to her stories and knowledge of cooking. Whether you are in Korea for a week or a year, I highly recommend cooking with Junghee.

We had an amazing time with Junghee. The market tour was excellent. She confirmed ahead of time our dietary requirements (Vegan) and had a menu that suited us. The cooking session was fun and entertaining. Junghee also took photos and videos us while cooking and sent them right away along with recipes. We did this at her family home which added to the authenticity of the experience.

I booked this cooking class for the first day of my visit to South Korea and i’m glad i did! Junghee is friendly, enthusiastic, fun, explained everything and in the end all was delicious! Gamsahabnida ! 5 stars.

This was a great experience. The good was AMAZING! The host is super nice and welcoming. I can't wait to try out the recipes once I get back home. I highly recommend this class!
