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.

This was the most wonderful experience and a real highlight of my time in Seoul! Junghee is the most marvellous host. She is full of energy and so funny and entertaining. She was great at getting the whole group chatting and interacting with one another. Junghee gives great clear instructions and we made the most incredible feast - mashisoyo!!! Also met some incredibly lovely people on this course. Thanks Junghee for an amazing experience! :-)

Nice experience with Junghee who shared with us, with a lot of passion, his culture! The prepared meals were excellent, everything was perfect! We warmly recommend this activity which allows you to discover Korea in a different way. Junghee speaks perfect and very understandable English even if we are not bilingual.

The market tour and class were so much fun. Junghee has so much energy and makes cooking the dishes so easy anyone can do it. In the beginning I was nervous about being a solo traveller but those feelings melted away so fast and I got to cook with a great group of people!
