Full description
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~ :)

Junghee hosted a fun, authentic, and yummy Korean experience. She was a blast to talk to and super knowledgeable. She let us stop and take photos, talk to vendors, and ask questions, while at the market. She then took us to her beautiful home where all the cooking supplies were already set up. She explained all the steps in detail and with patience, all while sharing interesting tips and fun life stories. She’s an amazing person, and created a fun excursion. This is great for the solo traveler, the couple, and even the whole family! Do yourself a favor and book this, don’t miss out!

This is an amazing experience! Junghee is a lovely host. She is so friendly and welcoming and she does an excellent job providing interesting insight. The market tour was really awesome, and getting to learn to cook Korean food at her house is an unforgettable experience. I loved the BIBIMBAP!! I highly recommend this tour!
