This class is an amazing immersive experience from the kindest host imaginable. She welcomes you into her world of Korean food and walks you step by step from the comfort of her home through each part of the meal. I’ve never had such a welcoming and heartwarming experience. If you truly want to experience the joy and comfort that Korea has to offer, do yourself a favor and take this class.
The best travel souvenirs are home-cooked recipes and fond food memories!

Where do I begin?

Junghee is a phenomenal host and such a natural at teaching. After the cooking class and local market tour, we felt that every single minute and money spent was incredibly worth it.

We started the class with a tour of one of the local markets in Seoul. She educated us on all of the market stalls - we learned how to pick the spiciest chilis, the best garlic, seaweed, sesame seeds, and more. She even stopped at a few of her recommended stalls to try their food, and they absolutely did not disappoint! She immediately made our class of 10 feel comfortable, telling stories and helping us open up to each other. The market tour was so good, we went back another day (and ran into Junghee again! Seeing a familiar face was such a joy on our trip). She also taught us a few essential phrases in Korean, which we used later on our trip!

The cooking class was fantastic as well. Junghee welcomed us into her home, where we met her family and learned more about her love of cooking. She ensured everything was sanitary, ensuring we all washed our hands before cooking and we didn't need to handle raw foods. We cooked many recipes and Junghee's instructions were easy to follow even for beginner cooks! Junghee even made sure to take lots of videos and photos of us cooking that she shared with us afterward. The food we made was delicious - my favorite was the seafood pajeon, which we will be making lots of! The class didn't stop there. Junghee is so supportive with any follow up questions we have for her when we shop for ingredients or start cooking any of the recipes.

On top of all of this, Junghee prepared a dessert for my husband, whose birthday fell the same day as our cooking class. Absolutely blown away by our experience. Gamsahamnida, Junghee!
So tasty

This was an amazing birthday present. Very well explained, delicious food and a lot of fun. I can totally recommend it. We have already cooked the meal back at home for our families. They loved it.
Great tour and experience with a great guide

Junghee picked us up on time at the station and took us to the market where we got an insight into Korean food culture. We got to try some fruit and some traditional street food too! After that we all had a great time at the cooking class where Junghee was fun, funny and informative and were very full after a big meal. Would recommend if you like cooking classes or interested in Korean food culture.
Amazing time a must go for your time in Seoul - accommodating of allergies (gluten free/Celiac) and bubbly kind host!!

Junghee was lovely and knowledgeable she did a brilliant job of teaching about Korean customs and food.

She accommodated my Celiac (strict Gluten Free) needs and took great care to avoid cross contamination. I finally got to eat some Korean Food!!

She welcomed us in to her home and delivered a great session, would recommend to anyone who is on a visit to Seoul!
