This tour was a great experience and chance to learn more about the Korean culture. We learned 2 step by step recipes (Japchae, chicken stew) and each ingredient's historical purpose in Korean cooking was explained to us. They hosts were extremely polite and helpful. I would 100% take another class!

We cannot say enough how wonderful this experience was. The food we cooked was excellent and the chef was funny and friendly. This was one of our best cooking classes that we have taken. Excellent experience. Granted, it is on the third floor of a building with no elevator, so stay hydrated on your way up and have fun. It is an excellent experience.

What a fantastic introduction to Korean cuisine! First, I would highly recommend that you arrive early about 30 minutes before the listed time to get a tour of the local underground market. It's definitely a different way of shopping than in the US, so it helps to have a local's perspective on how they purchase the ingredients. Next, and probably the reason you are signing up for this, the cooking portion is excellent. We were lucky to only have 4 people, so we got a lot of personal intention from the instructors. They strike a good balance of doing the not-fun prep ahead of time while still letting you chop, dice, grind, and mix. Our instructor, Ran, was a lot of fun and took her time explaining each step. Her and her colleagues would then float around and help you as you did the steps yourself. We made a soup good and bibimbap excellent!. Come hungry. You'll definitely leave full! Would have loved to take another class from these folks if we were in Seoul longer.

This was an absolutely amazing experience. I have zero cooking skills but the teacher was incredibly clear and informative. The meal was delicious and really helped me appareciate Korean food from an entirely new angle. The market tour before the class was also fascinating. Would strongly recommend.
