This cooking lesson was a wonderful experience and I recommend it if you want to learn how to cook authentic Korean food. Ive tried to make bulgogi back in England but could never get the taste quite right. This lesson made me learn how to get the correct flavours and we even got to eat what we made at the end. It was also fascinating seeing the underground market, which you can see if you arrive 30 minutes earlier. I recommend you do this, as you learn a lot about Korean food culture. The cooking teacher who I think is called Rana was amazing. Her English was good and she kept an eye on us to make sure we were keeping up and if we needed any help. She was very professional at cooking and was very friendly. Thank you for this wonderful experience and insight into Korean food culture and I hope I can now develop my Korean cooking skills in the future.

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 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.

We had a great time and the class was just what we where looking for. On top of a great class the instructor and staff were very helpful advising my wife on what foods to avoid with her food allergy. All in all it was a great experience.

I truly recommend this cooking class. I am a solo traveler who enjoys lots and lots of food lol. So not only was I able to learn how to make kimchi, I was also able to meet some good people. The class I took was a beginner class for kimchi and bulgogi. The bulgogi recipe they have is very easy and very good. I'm not a kimchi expert, but I've had a lot of kimchi from different places, but never attempted to make it at home. They made it so simple to make kimchi so now I can confidently make it home. The market tour was a little lacking though I thought. But that could just be because I visited bigger traditional markets prior to the class. All in all we had a great instructor/chef that day so I had a very enjoyable time.

I liked very much.
Everything was shown and explained and at the same time I got to do everything by myself and I loved it!
I ate what I cooked and also a very tasty kimchi pancake made by the chef:)
Thank you!
