Do you take a deep interest in authentic Korean culinary adventure at an exotic place?
Here is the perfect place for you! I lived with extended family from diverse cities in Korea so I could get amazing knowledge about various local food from them. I run my own restaurant for 7 years based on the knowledge and experiences. Also I've shared the K-cooking with Koreans & foreigners. I can help you to take the passion of Korean traditional cuisine into your kitchen.
Come and have a great time at my lovely place :-)
This class includes fun market tour and food tasting, cooking class. It's the great way to know authentic Korean culture through food.
1. Local market tour and taste of street food at Mangwong mark...
Walk through the market was very informative and Sarah made it fun, explaining things as we went. The food we cooked was amazing and plentiful. If your looking for something to do in Seoul...would definitely suggest taking Sara's class.
Sara is a lovely host that basically made us smile from second one onwards. The market tour was super interesting and the food was amazing. It was our first time taking a cooking class in a foreign country, and oh boy was it a good idea.
The experience with Junghee was simply amazing! She was a very upbeat and passionate host that asked all of us in the tour questions to get to know us better. It felt very personal and we learned many things about Korean food and culture while going through the market together. While going through the market, she told us many personal anecdotes and bought delicious snacks to try. Everything was nicely prepared for the cooking portion of the class, making the experience not only very educational, but also smooth. The detailed instructions she gave made the cooking very easy to do and enjoyable. We had a lot of fun and this class is definitely recommended to anyone who wants to experience Korean culture!
Wowowow! Loved this! First off, my girlfriend is vegetarian, and with Korean cuisine being so meat-and-seafood heavy I was worried he wouldn't be able to eat anything, but she made good substitutions for him and he left feeling just as stuffed as the rest of us! Second, we stupidly wrote down the wrong date on our calendar and missed our class (gah!), but she was so kind and understanding and helped us reschedule. She was warm, meticulous, very organized, and was interesting and full of information! We loved it!
Spent a great morning cooking and chatting with Junghee; she explains all about the ingredients but also adds personal touches about her own experiences - it felt like hanging out with a friend who loves cooking! And of course having a tasty dinner afterwards makes it even better. Would definitely recommend!
We really enjoyed Junghee (Sara) cooking experience! Not only did she provide us an experience of a lifetime, she provided us insight of Korean food culture and traditions! Junghee was very personable, sweet and funny! She kept us laughing all the way while we did the market tour and during our cooking experience! Thanks again Junghee for pics of experience and giving us a memory of a lifetime to treasure forever!
I meet good friends (Peter family from Amsterdam n Mrs. Emily from US) ,we have enjoyed whole wonderful time with Junghee. She is very welcome to us n very friendly, outgoing and helpful. Location is so easy to meet up, just outside the metro exit 2! Pretty good mangwon market tour experience, and learn some simple recipes in Korean foods, also yummy traditional dishes and side dishes ! Junghee always take care us, keep talking with us! let me feel at own home n make us happy together! I Will recommend to our friends!!!
Sarah’s cooking class was very well organised! It’s perfect for complete beginner like me. We started off with a market tour (Mangwon market) to get some ingredients for the class before we head over to Sarah’s place for the class. The way she conducted the class was easy to understand and fun as well. Highly recommended for families and anyone who would like to have a try on Korean cuisine.
From tour of the market to the cooking preparations, everything was well-planned and crafted. Her house was very clean; she streamed Korean music while we cooked; she knew the vendors at the market; the ingredients were fresh (some she bought during the market tour); she took photos of her guests so we can fully focus on cooking and eating; and the menu was so satisfying. No matter how many restaurants I go, I am perpetually longing for homemade food, so the four dishes we prepared really hit the spot. Although I love cooking, this was my first time attending a cooking class. Junghee made me feel welcome and answered all of my questions. She didn’t rush through anything, and her hospitality was impeccable. Because Junghee is well-traveled, she can give you recommendations not only on Korea, but also all over the world. It was so special to meet her baby and her husband. I highly recommend this experience. It is well-worth your time and money.
Junghee’s class was our favorite thing during our trip to Seoul! It was very easy to find her, and the market tour was super fun and informational. She showed us the best street food and explained the history behind everything there. Her home was very warm and inviting, and the cooking class itself was (of course) very delicious and thoughtful. We had such a good time with her and the other guests! She’s a very charming, knowledgeable, and talented host :)
Junghee's cooking class is amazing! She's a wonderful host and we had a great time with her. She showed us around a market, pointing out how different ingredients are used, how things are prepared, etc. while also giving us a chance to try some snacks and street food. Then we walked a couple minutes back to her apartment and had a great cooking lesson, learning how to make 4 dishes and then enjoying our food together in her lovely home. She taught us some basic Korean words/phrases and was able to answer all of our other questions about Korean cooking/culture as well. Junghee is a wonderful, welcoming host and we loved that this experience was basically a 2-for-1: a market tour and a cooking class. Delicious and very highly recommended!
Junghee was an outstanding host with exceptional local knowledge. It was great to interact with the local food vendors and learn a few Korean phrases. The cooking class itself was so much fun and well guided and organised by Junghee. The food was delicious and plentiful and we left feeling extremely satisfied. Strongly recommended to anyone visiting Seoul!
This was one of the highlights of our trip to Seoul. We did the market tour and cooking class combo. Do both... seriously. The market tour was great because you got the insider scoop on the market and different ingredients and food there. The cooking class was great because you got to apply what you learned from the market tour. The class is a small set up in Junghee's home! It was great. You'll walk away with a couple of things you could actually see yourself making at home. This is one of those things that I would recommend to anyone visiting Seoul.
Belajar masak yang sangat seru untuk mereka yang suka dengan pengalaman lokal di Korea. Host nya sangat baik, sangat ramah dan bisa menjelaskan dengan sangat mudah.
it was good
The host was really friendly and willing to show us around. Really enjoyed the market and cooking experience. After the experience was completed, she provided the recipes from the cooking class, which was great and can use those recipes for the future. I will recommend this experience to family and friends. Suggestion: Having no more than 8 people would be preferable. Felt having 11 people was crowded and everyone could not see the market portion.
I had such a good time and loved every minute of my cooking class. I cannot wait to show my family my new cooking skills😁
I can only recommend this class! We had a very nice evening, first at the market and then cooking and eating at home. We learned a lot about Korean (food) culture and could ask our lovely host all the questions we had. And of course - food was delicious. Thanks a lot!
I had so much fun! The guide was super sweet and funny! If you want to experience local market and enjoy a cooking class this is the right choice for you.
The evening was great and we had a mountain of delicious food! I just wish I had a larger stomach to eat it all. We learned about Korean spices and now I understand a bit more how Korean spices are mixed and foods are prepared. Junghee was a super host and very friendly. It was wonderful to meet her family, visit a Korean home and learn more about the culture.
We had an awesome and fun cooking class. Thanks a lot to our lovely teacher Junghee. She's so accommodating and made us comfortable. We really enjoyed it a lot and loved our food we prepared ourselves...masiseoyo!!😋 She also taught us some korean words too. This class is highly recommended.
I really enjoyed the cooking course, the host was fantastic, she was warm and funny and lovely to spend an evening with. I tried lots of delicious street food in the market and got a great insight into Korean flavours. I would highly recommend 😁
We had a great time. Our host met us at the market and took us around, answering all of our questions. We went back to her house for the class, and it was well set up and a lot of fun. The food was delicious and we found out we were experts at flipping pancakes (the pressure was on). We learned a lot about Korean culture and food. An excellent experience we would highly recommend.
Junghee had so much knowledge to share about Korean food and culture. She was a lovely host as she gave very clear instructions. Recommend this cooking class adventure for anyone coming to Seoull.
Sarah is very lovely and we had an gret evening with fantastic self-made korean dishes. Thank You Sarah!
My boyfriend and I got the chance of taking part in this wonderful cooking class. Junghee was such a friendly, open-minded and funny person. She was also very excellent and kind in showing us how to cook taditional korean food, which was at the end soo good and soo much! The whole three hours (nearly more because we ate very slow) were really worth doing as we not only learned how to cook but also learned about the area, the market, trying out street food and learn a lot about the korean culture. Definitely recommend it to everyone who loves to cook and who is looking for a very fun day with a real local who makes your trip more special! Thanks again Junghee for all your stories and laughs :)
This was a wonderful experience! Thanks to Junghee's recipes and guidance, the dishes tasted just as I hoped them to, even though I'm not the most talented cook, and she was so nice to send me all the recipes afterwards! She is super-friendly and eager to keep the conversation going, and even though I was solo traveler, she made me feel very welcome and prepared an amazing selection of side dishes for me, even adding some that caught my attention during our market tour. And she adapted her explanations at the market and about the Korean language to the fact that I already had some knowledge (since I've been living here for 4 months), so she told me several interesting things that were new to me. The cooking itself was fun too, she had prepared everything very well so we could use the time for the most important steps (rather than having to peel the vegetables first etc.) I highly recommend taking a cooking class with her! :)
I had such an amazing experience with Junghee and her cooking class. From the moment we started our market tour I instantly felt at ease, she was so friendly and kind. We explored the market and Junghee explained how many local foods were made and we sample a few things on the way to her house. I have been to some of the markets before but it was so interesting learning the story behind the food. Once we got to her house she had everything ready and took me through the dishes one step at a time. It was a great experience and I learned so much. After we cooked the dishes we sat down and had a lovely dinner. It was a great experience and a wonderful way to kick off my trip to Seoul, I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking of taking a cooking class!
We loved the market tour and the cooking class! It was so much fun, and the food was delicious. The ingredients were really fresh, and our instructor was so lovely and helpful. She made sure we all had a great time, and our overall experience was perfect.
I took this class with my mom and my partner (both love cooking, it’s their passion). We love korean food so it was a must to do this. It has been one of the best experiences we have had, from learning to differentiate vegetables, smells and foods in the market, learn basic Korean words to survive in the city and even try, mix and prepare the traditional dishes correctly. Her passion for transmitting her culinary knowledge and love for it makes the class very pleasant and enjoyable the whole experience! Thank you very much for everything, the food was delicious and we can not wait to put everything into practice! We take an unforgettable memory of korea and we hope that many more people will be motivated to try your classes! We recommend them 100%!
I loved this experience - Sarah was incredibly helpful and calm throughout the process. It was great getting to know about the different kinds of foods throughout our walk across the market as well as learning the recipes for those wonderful meals. My favorite part, however, was actually just getting to talk to Sarah. She was incredibly relatable and nice and a general sweet human being. I recommend this class to anyone visiting Korea! P.S. She teaches you helpful Korean as well.
