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!

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!

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 💖

We loved this class and market tour. The market tour was really interesting and we really enjoyed tasting some of the food. Junghee made us feel at ease right away and was very good at getting everyone talking. She created a really nice atmosphere during the cooking class and was the best teacher - the food was delicious! Would definitely recommend!

My husband, son and I visited Seoul, South Korea over the Chinese New Year Holiday and my son who is 29 and I decided it'd be fun to take a Local Cooking Course together to learn more about the food and culture. While in Seoul we went to see the Changing of the Guard Ceremony at the South Gate, visited Museums and Palaces and different Markets and Districts but going on this Market tour and participating in the cooking class was definitely one of the highlights of our time there.

We chose this cooking course based on Trip Advisor reviews and we think we made an excellent choice.

The transaction through Trip Advisor with the Chef Junghee Yoon was smooth and she sent us an email right after our booking to confirm our meeting location and times, etc. Getting to the Mangwon District from our Hotel in Myeondong District was easy and took about 30 minutes on the MRT. Junghee met us outside a set MRT station and then brought us first on a walking tour through the Mangwon Market which was an amazing experience. There's everything at the Mangwon Market from fresh fruit and vegetables to food booths, hand made noodles, fish, live octopus, seaweed, you name it! Junghee gives you a ton of information about the food you pass by and both my son and I loved the walking tour just as much as the actual cooking class itself. As part of your payment for the class Junghee also purchases a couple of snacks at the Market for you to try. So cool and so yummy!

It's a short walk from the Market to the cooking class located within Junghee's home and the atmosphere is bright and cheery as is Junghee herself. She has a great set up and can accommodate numerous students at one time. Turns out that the end of January is a fairly slow time for her so my son and I had her all to ourselves and had a one on one cooking experience which was a lot of fun.

Junghee supplies all the ingredients, give you a cup of warm barley tea when you arrive, and teaches you cooking techniques in order to produce a very lovely meal that you get to enjoy at the end of your class. This particular day our menu included Bibimbap, Dakgalbi (stir-fried chicken), a Seafood pancake, and a fermented soy bean paste soup which was incredible. We even got to taste the South Korean rice wine called Makgeolli, which was interesting.

I can't recommend this class highly enough and I wouldn't change a thing. Junghee took a few photos of us during the class which she sent to us afterwards along with the recipes for the items that we made that day. She's a really good instructor with a great command of English and it was a really positive experience. Worth every penny.

Thank you so much Junghee. It was a real pleasure to meet you and get to spend a few hours in your lovely area.

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!

Although the price was a little high, I feel like we got our monies worth. The walk through the market was a highlight. She patiently answered any question we had. She really could have her own talk show she was very charismatic and personable. Her English was near perfect making it easy to follow along. Once we arrived at the cooking location (her home) she and her assistant(her husband) had everything extremely organized. There was never any awkward down time. She included everyone to the degree they wanted to be included. When it came to e quality and taste of the food…..it was far better then any restaurant we had yet been to. Thank you!

Not only do we cook, but we also learn some basic korean and learn about the korean culture!
If you ever get the chance to go to Seoul, you should absolutely take this class!

What an awesome evening - every element delivered in spades. Food was outstanding, learned so much about Korea (both food based and generally) and Jung Hee was an absolute star, she made the whole evening great and her stories, personality and wit stole the show. 10/10!
