Overview
Learn how to cook a traditional Korean meal with help from a local during this 3-hour, small-group cooking class in Seoul. Take a short walking tour through the city as you make your way to a nearby market to pick up some ingredients to use in your recipes. Then, head over to a traditional Korean house, and learn to cook Korean dishes. Once you’ve finished in the kitchen, enjoy eating your meal with the company of your group.
What to Expect
Meet your small group at Jegidong Station Exit 2 (Line Number 1, near Dongdaemun Station) a little before 10am to get your 3-hour experience underway.

Your guide (who later becomes your cooking instructor) takes you and a small-group limited to seven on a short walking tour through the city to a local market. At the market, following the lead from your guide, your group picks up all the ingredients needed to make the recipes that have been planned out for the day.

Please note your meal has been planned differently by the day you chose for this experience. On Monday, you'll make samgyetang. If you chose a Thursday class, you’ll make kimchi. If you chose a Tuesday or Saturday class,you’ll make bulgogi, japchae, and deonjang jjigae. Fridays are reserved for bibimbap, and Sunday classes involve making a variety of Korean desserts.

After the market, your guide shows you the way to a Korean-style house in a local neighborhood. He or she sets you up in the kitchen with the others, and class begins. Learn how to make the popular Korean dishes on the menu for the day.

Once everything has been fully prepared, sit down and taste what you’ve created. Chat with your group members and cooking instructor before they bring you back to the station exit you were picked up from. Morning tea is included on all of the tours.
