We had an amazing time at Joungy's cooking class, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a small group experience in a friendly and fun environment. Very well organized and structured, and Joungy's cooking school is located right within the market that you tour before hand and purchase ingredients for some of the dishes that you'll prepare. We made delicious seafood pancakes and bibimbap, and well as a special dessert dumpling with sugar and mixed nuts. And the best part - we got to make our own kim chi and Joungy makes you a care package so you can take it home with you! I made mine extra spicy and I can't wait to try it when we get back home! Also, her school is air conditioned and its a perfect escape on a hot Seoul summer day. I was so full afterwards, and I was also very happy. Joungy is extremely warm and friendly, and also very funny. She's a great teacher and made cooking a lot of fun. It was a perfect 3 hour experience and really complimented our visit to Seoul. Highly recommended - you won't be disappointed!

Chef Joungy is a wonderful teacher, a gracious and accomodating host, and a truly delightful person. I can't wait to take another class!
Really appreciated that the recipes chosen were simple, with ingredients can easily be found in our homeland. We will definitely try the recipes. We also liked that each one had there own cooking station. The food was healthy and so delicious, so was the tea.
Joungy provided an awesome package, which included a market tour to explain the different ingredients. The cooking classes are very personal due to the small numbers and the menus are authentic and rewarding. Overall great value for money and the food was delightful.
Joungy’s class is welcoming, educational, traditional, fun and so SO tasty!
Joungy is so friendly, knowledgable and patient! Her house is gorgeous, and right in the middle of the market, which makes for a great korean setting. The recipes she teaches are tasty, yet achievable, and she makes sure you can take the recipes to make at home. I cannot recommend her class enough!
Chef Joungy was an excellent teacher, she met us at the subway and we walked through the market. She explained different korean vegetables and how they're used. The class was small which was great, lots of one on one attention and a great atmosphere. Would highly recommend to experienced cooks and newcomers alike!!
This cooking class was amazing! Lots of cooking classes make recipes with 50 ingredients and it's something you'll never be able to make at home. This was perfect! You get recipes with simple ingredients that are delicious! We loved it! The house is right in the market place too and traditional. You get the whole experience! Would highly recommend.
Good overview of korean cuisine with a good teacher in a perfect setting
We could spend the wonderful time.The teacher is so kind and friendly.Eveey foods were very good taste.I recommend this cooking class.
I got what I expected at the class. The market which I visted is near Joungy's home so it means I didn't waste my time for going form the market to the home. Joungy is nice and it is good value for money.
I loved the whole experience, she was friendly and I enjoyed being with her .. and even took us more time to finish the whole class and she was completely fine with spending more time with us while chatting all the way about various things .
Youngy is so nice and talented, we recommend the experience 100%!
Great to exerience a traditional home and local market. The class was well prepared and Joungy was an excellent teacher and host, eager to exchange about Korean culture and gastronomy. At this price, it is very good value for money!!
Youngy is super nice and fun, she makes the recepie easy and you get to eat in a traditional home! It was great and I can't wait to cook bibimbap back home!
Great class, great food, great teacher ! Thanks
Great class. Joungy is so knowledgeable and we actually did the cooking. The market tour was nice prior to the class as it was great to learn about the veggies commonly used in Korean cooking. The Bibimbap we made was better than one I had at a restaurant. The dessert was delicious and I'm so excited to make it now. Would definitely take her class again.
The class was great!! We like to take cooking classes in the various countries we visit and I would have to say Joungy's class was one the best. I like how we made eat course and then had time to eat it while it was still fresh. Going to a local market beforehand was very educational and also a lot of fun. I can hardly wait to eat the kimchi we made.
Joungy's cooking class was one of the best cooking classes I' ve taken so far! It was authentic and fun! We went to a market to get our ingredients and she even help me buy chili paste and soybean paste in her free time after the cooking class, so I could recook the menu and showed me were to buy chopsticks. Thank you again Joungy :) Our menu was: - Seafood Pancakes ( I'm not fond of seafood, so Joungy bought more vegetables for my pancake which was really nice of her!) - Bulgogi with soy sauce and rice - korean crapes with nuts - and we learned how to make kimchi and could take a glass home ! This cooking class is definitely fun, even if you're not that experienced at cooking and a great way to learn more about the korean kitchen and culture.
We joined Joungy‘s cooking class in a group of 2 and were lucky to have a private lesson with her making seafood pancakes (heamul pajean), spicy roasted pork (jeyuk bokum) and bukkumi nut crêpes. Joungy offered an intimate experience at her traditional-style home near a local food market, patiently teaching us recipes simple enough to follow abroad, yet authentic in preparation and flavor. Her classes are, in our opinion, an insightful taste of Korean cooking and one of the highlights of our stay in Seoul!
Excellent morning with the very kind and friendly chef. The program is great to get a quick insight into the goods at the market, which we also use for the cooking. Joungy's recipes and instructions are easy to follow and the outcome was delicious. She was very helpful throughout the day. We had a great time, lots of laughs, tasty and hearty korean food with our lovely chef Joungy :) It will be one of our best memory of our visit to Korea.
Joungy細心親切。在這短短的3小時， 老師先帶我們逛地道市場，向我們講解一些韓國人日常使用的食材，然後她便帶大家回到她的廚藝教室。那裡麻雀雖小，但五臟俱全又不失雅緻。是日我們所學的是：韓式炒粉絲、辣炒豬肉及糯米合桃煎餅。菜式製作簡單，味美！ 而且還可以帶上自製的泡菜回家呢！ This is a wonderful and simply way to learn how to make Korean Cuisine. Chef Joungy is a nice teacher , she teaches us patiently!

Thanks to you we had a delicious dinner. I'm looking forward to cooking again the dishes at my home. And thanks for so the tip for the restaurant in Busan. It was really delicious.
It was a great experience, we had a lot of fun. Totally worth it :)
Chef Joungy親切和藹 耐心教導。 我們先逛了一個地道街市， 雖然面積不大， 但檔主大多友善親切，Chef Joungy 為我們介紹了不少韓國當地的食材。 然後我們便到了她在街市附近的廚藝教室上課。 今天煮的是韓式三味： 韓式炒粉絲 +辣炒豬肉+ 糯米合桃煎餅 過程不複雜 ，簡單美味， 值得一試！
Chef Joungy did a really great job of teaching the class. It was structured very well, she explained all directions very clearly, and demonstrated great enthusiasm all throughout. I loved the fact that her classes had an appetizer, main dish, and dessert to teach. I look forward to learning more Korean dishes to cook from her. Keep up the great work!
We were with a small group of two students, which was perfect! Joungy taught us how to make 3 dishes and kimchi, and there was plenty of room for nice talks and fun. I would definitely recommend the class.
Joungy is an amazing chef and teacher! We had a great time and are looking forward to incorporating the tasty recipes we learned in our cooking routine. If you’re visiting Seoul, Joungy’s class is definitely worth taking. She recommended great places to visit during our trip and it’s nice getting to know a friendly face around the city.
Had a great class. I am not a particularly talented cook but I had a lot of fun and made some great dishes. Joungy was very patient and taught me a lot of things on how to be a better cook in general too. Good for groups or singles (I went as a single). Would recommend, had a good time.
We had an amazing time with Joungy and her home! This was one of the best experience we had from our short trip to Korea. Great school! Amazing chef! Joungy was very friendly and accommodating. She has her own style in teaching that was intimidating but very concise and straight to the point. She taught us the importance of spices in Korean cuisine as well as the use of different herbs from the market tour. After teaching us the starters, main and dessert, we talked about Seoul and its culture. From a person who loves Korean food and wanting to try out being a Korean for one day, then this is the perfect place for you!
It was really lovely to learn more about Korean cooking and how to adapt it towards a vegetarian diet. Thank you!
We enjoyed Joungy's cooking class a lot! Starting with picking us up from the subway station and having a nice short walk from there to her cooking class including a stop by at a local market to get some insights about the groceries. Cooking the dishes which Joungy made easy to understand - made fun and were delicious! We loved the fact that you can eat each dish after preparation. All in all, the service, the food quality and Joungy's chef expertise were excellent! Thank you so much, we will definitely recommend! :)
I really enjoyed my class with Joungy, she broke down the process for each dish really simply and made a scary recipe really easy. I loved the fact that we could take our Kimchi home (which is now in my fridge in the UK).
Loved the class - and the chef! Learned a lot😁
