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

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.

It was a really precious experience to take this cooking class. Junghee helps you not only to be able to cook Korean food but to create an unforgettable memories. She is very friendly and interesting person. At first we had a nice walk around the market and then were welcomed in Junghee's house! The whole cooking process was followed by the exciting talk. And the food which we prepared at the end is the most delicious Korean food which I have ever eaten! And now I even can cook it!!! I am highly recommend not to miss the chance to be Junghee's guest :) Thank you very much for your hospitality!

What a wonderful experience! After strolling through an authentic market —and getting some true insider tips on the best ingredients— we were welcomed at Junghee’s home where we made some classic Korean dishes and swapped travel stories. Everything was really well taken care of and the food was delicious! Also great for all skill levels. Junghee is an extraordinary host who really makes you feel welcome, her English is great and she’s very accommodating towards vegetarians and/or those with allergies. We would love to come back sometime and cook some more great food with her! Highly recommend

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.

The chicken galbi turned out fabulously. I would have never been able to make something like that on my own. I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in learning more about Korean culture and cuisine.

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!
