      Fun class and opportunity to see the residential side of Seoul
      Fun class and opportunity to see the residential side of Seoul! Sarah also share recipes and pictures with you after the class. All the ingredients, she used are very common and easy to get in regular Korean supermarket. You’ll also get to meet other International English speaking visitors, who share their traveling stories! Highly recommend!

      So much fun!
      We had so much fun learning how to make bibimbap, seafood pancakes and meeting new friends! I highly recommend this class. Everything was delicious and our host Sarah was charming, entertaining and informative.

      Lovely Hostess - Part Tour, Part Class
      I thoroughly enjoyed her class today! We went to the market, and she explained many of the things we saw. She purchased a few snacks for us, then we went to her place (4th floor, no elevator) for the cooking class. We made bibimbap, seafood pancakes, and a chicken dish. The instructions were clear and simple. The food was good!

      Regular homemade food experiences
      Teenaged son and husband were happy about the experience. The menu included daily kind of homemade food - seafood pancake, mixed Vegetables and meat rice and stir fried chicken. The side dishes and soup were made by the chef. To be frank, I was disappointed as no New Year’s specialties, side dishes nor traditional food were included. I was also looking for more sharing in Korean culture, too.

      Fun cooking experience
      The tour guide showed us around the local market and the group got to see and learn about so many different foods and sample some of the items. The guide was very kind and energetic and her cooking instructions were very clear and easy to understand. Thanks to her I now have more confidence in flipping a Korean pancake. Thank you for the experience!

      Cooking class with Jung Hee 👍🏻👏🏻
      Jung Hee’s class was beyond amazing. She was fun, interactive, engaging, warm and sweet. My husband and I enjoyed the class thoroughly. Jung Hee brought us through a market tour which was really insightful as it felt like a short walk through a local’s life. She introduced korea cultures, and food products to us. One can really really feel the passion and joy from Jung Hee throughout the whole session. During the class, everyone had one gas stove each and Had a full hands on experience. Apart from that, the food turned out really amazing delicious. We really appreciate Jung Hee’s efforts and thou mi ghts that she put into each class. We really think that this is one class that shouldn’t be missed! Thank you Jung Hee for the amazing class and we hope to see you again!

      The Cooking Class to take
      This was a truly great experience. Junghee was an amazing host, both informative and entertaining. We very much enjoyed trying new foods at the market tour and cooking them in her lovely home. Everything was well organized and yummy. We take cooking courses everywhere we travel, this was one of the top ones!

      It was an amazing and inspiring experience
      I was the only one that signed up for the workshop, so I basically had a private cooking class. :) It was inspiring to me, especially since she shared her own story with me. I loved hearing about her passion and knowledge for korean food. The food I made/had was simple, easy to make and delicious as well.

    Jongyee led us with delightful energy through a locals market that was packed full of fresh food. We picked up product and snacks along the way before entering her home/cooking school. There she led us with enthusiasm making 4 dishes that all turned out delicious!

    After meeting at the Metro Station, we had a tour around the local market, before heading to the building where we were going to cook our food. The market was a considerable size, and we were able to try some of the local street food. Junghee knew so much! She was able to explain in detail about local produce, and quickly made you feel at ease when walking through the busy streets. Once we entered the building, we made our way to the kitchen stations and were talked through what we were going to prepare. The whole experience was amazing, and the food tasted really good as well. I highly recommend going on an empty stomach because there is so much to eat. At no point were we rushed, or made to feel that we weren't welcome. The group even got to meet the family's newest member! All in all, I had a fantastic time. The people I got to share the experience with were really nice as well, and I had a nice chat with Junghee before I had to leave to catch my train. Thanks for the experience!

    As everyone had a good review, Jonghee’s cooking class was great. It was organized and enjoyable. I recommend the morning class as the market is more active and has many products in the morning. She used to run a cafe, and her recipe is Korean but a adjustable according to the preference of joiners. She is also a traveler and has a lot of stories to tell. Do not miss her class when you have a chance to visit Seoul.

    I have been living In Seoul for 8 months and still hadn’t had much knowledge on cooking Korean food. Junghee was so kind and welcoming us into her home. She was funny and the whole experience was so educational. I feel very comfortable being able to cook these recipes on my own. The food was delicious. I would love to do this again and I highly recommend this to anyone visiting or living in Korea.

    I absolutely loved Junghee’s class. It was so fun & we prepared & ate really good food! I love Junghee’s passion for cooking & her knowledge of superb Korean cultural cuisine (to include her very simple yet friendly teaching style). She also possess a cute & warm/welcoming personality & her English speaking skills are superlative. The (4) menu items she chose for us to prepare that day were perfectly selected.

    I highly recommend attending her cooking class if you want to create a memorable experience while visiting Seoul & would like to indulge in some really good Korean food. You will not be disappointed, satisfaction guaranteed 🥰 She also takes you on a brief tour of Mangwon Market (probably one of the best & only markets you need to visit while in Seoul) allowing you to partake in some unique treats - (her treat to you) prior to the start of your cooking class. We travelled all the way from Hawaii & we left very impressed with our stomachs full of pure delight 💖

    Such a great experience, would highly recommend to everyone! Junghee makes the market tour and cooking class so much fun but you also learn a lot. And there is tasty food/drink to enjoy from start to finish!
    I also think you really benefit from going to Mangwon market vs one of the bigger ones - it’s less busy and Junghee really takes the time to stop, look at and explain things. You can get a real insight into what it’s like for those that live locally and shop in this market for their groceries everyday. Doing the cooking class in her home makes it feel so cosy and comfortable!
    Worth every (very affordable) penny!

    This was a wonderful experience from start to finish. Sara met my boyfriend and I outside the metro and off we went to the market. She showed us how to purchase fresh chili powder (ground on the spot) and identify different unfamiliar Korean vegetables. We sampled different tofus and relished in the amazement of the variety of fish, rice cakes, and fruits as well. Once to her apartment (only a block from the market) we were offered barley tea and a colorful Korean apron. She has a lively and welcoming set up in her home fully stocked and prepared to hit the ground running. She was fast paced, easy to understand and follow in direction, efficient, and excited. We prepared 3 of the 4 dishes, while she instructed us on a soup that was very simple for adding to the repertoire in the future. Bibimbap, seafood pancakes, bean curd soup, marinated chicken (dakgalbi) were on the menu. After trying our hands at flipping the pancakes (first time and we nailed it!), the spread was ready to eat along with rice wine that was offered. It was delicious! Come to this class very hungry. We had to roll ourselves out to the road to catch a taxi because we were so full!

    Overall, everything was perfect, well paced, delicious, and memorable. Please join this class and give Sara a big hug from the Americans! We hope to be back for the next menu.

    We visited Seoul in last December. Decided to include a simple cooking class itinerary for my family to experience something "LOCAL"! We have 4 adults and 3 kids (age 7yrs to 9yrs). Everyone had enjoyed themselves! The street market tour, tasting a few local snacks and hands-on on the cooking table. Although is "touch and go", but is good enough to fill a half day. Dishes are simple but we have a great time! JungHee speaks fluent English and she is such a bubbly lady, we had so much laughters! Thank you so much for such a great memorable time! My mum and the kids will still talk about it after the trip... *wrink*

    My wife, brother and I decided to do a Korean cooking class on our trip to Seoul and I am so glad that we did. Sara has a contagious upbeat attitude that we knew from the start we would have a great time. We started off with a tour of the Market where she talks about local ingredients and also teaches us some basic Korean phrases. She purchased some Korean street food for us which were super yummy! She then invites us into her lovely home where everything is set up and the cooking class begins. She is very clear with her instructions and the whole experience was really fun no matter what level of cooking you have. Our meal was delicious and we left with full stomachs and full hearts. I highly recommend anyone in Seoul who is interested in Korean cooking to book a session with Sara!

    The market visit was really awesome.
    Loved how she conducted it and told us all about the local Korean ingredients. On top of that she also made us try some local food items and taught us some basic Korean to survive in Korea. On top of that she also helped out on what places to visit and all . Would really recommend this.

    The way she decorated her house to make sure we are working in a kitchen . Also gave us traditional Korean aprons to wear. She gave us an understanding of the Korean ingredients and Korean cooking techniques. We learnt 4 different dishes all of them were very different from each other. She made sure we didn't get bored and in the end she set up the table in a traditional Korean way and also served us some SOJU .
    What a great experience it was.
