This was a great cooking class. Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable. They showed you how to make a dish and then sent you to your very nice, clean personal workstation to make your own. Slicing, dicing, mixing, cooking, was all done by the participant. At the end we ate what we prepared, so you were able to adjust spices if you wanted. It was delicious! Definately a must do when in Seoul.

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.
