This was an excellent and well organized cooking class. The Chef has figured out how to arrange her participants independent with their own cooking ware and stoves and the hands on training is impeccable. You eat what you cook ! We enjoyed it immensely. We also had a great group with us with many different countries represented and it was great camaraderie! Highly recommended!

Extremely well organized, fun, and easy to follow cooking class. Went with my mom and we had a great time learning how to prepare traditional Korean foods. The teacher was fantastic are provided a lot of great tips; I am a huge foodie and still learned a lot.

This was definitely one of our favorite experiences in South Korea. My 16 year old daughter and I had so much fun learning about different local foods at the open air market. Then learning how to cook different types of Korean food, and getting to eat what we made. Such a fun and memorable experience! I would definitely recommend it!

We have done these kind of cooking classes in several Asian countries as they are always so enjoyable. You learn about food and culture, meet a lot of interesting people and can enjoy your own creations. This course was run very efficiently we cooked a Kimchi Stew, then some noodles and in the end spicy fried pork. Everything was delicious. There was a tofu/mushroom option for anyone who didn't want to eat meat. The tour around the market before we started cooking was also really interesting. Would def recommend.

We learnt about kimchi and its role in the Korean diet which was interesting.
Food preparation was quite easy, it was good to try some new ingredients and flavours.
Jomin and her staff were very helpful and the premises was well-organised and super clean.
Vegetarians are well catered for with mushrooms and tofu replacing the meat.
An excellent tourist activity, highly recommended!

We were supposed to meet Jomin at exit number 2 of Mangwon metro station, to start off the market tour. But the subway system in Korea was a bit confusing for us, and we were late for a good ten minutes.

During the market tour, Jomin was jovial and insightful. She was unflustered when I told her the kids lost something along the way, and we may need to backtrack a little to search for it. Jomin allowed us 5-10minutes, while she carry on the market tour with the rest.

Her patience and good humour was evident throughout the session. We thoroughly enjoyed the hands on cooking class. It's not just the food. But also the good conversation we had with Jomin and the rest of the participants.

RUN to reserve your spot! Jomin is an awesome cooking instructor, kind person, and was SO informative about how food is used in Korean culture. We loved this experience, from taking the subway, to walking the MASSIVE market learning about ingredients, to cooking and enjoying our dishes. 10/10! You don’t want to miss this!

They guided us very carefully. After about 10 minutes of fumbling, I had some understanding of how to make food. Everything went great. Very delicious and satisfying
