    This cooking class and market tour absolutely exceeded my expectations!! Juno was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide as we went around the markets. I am so glad I went to the markets with someone from Busan, and I feel I learned so much more than I would have on my own. Then, he drove us to his cooking studio, which has a gorgeous view! He was a helpful teacher, taking it slow and telling us why we were doing certain techniques, as well as how to do them. Then we all ate the food together and had wonderful conversation! Juno also found out it was my birthday and surprised me with a cake at the end of the meal. So kind, and beyond what was expected. I would recommend this cooking class to anyone!! I want to go back and do it again in the spring.

    Would highly recommend the cooking class to those who love Korean food. JunHo was a a friendly and helpful guide plus cook. He explained to us patiently when we tour at the Jagalchi market. His cooking class was located at high hill with beautiful view. We learned how to cook our favourite Korean food from scratch. Thank you Junho for being such a great host

    My mom and I signed up for the cooking class in the morning with Jun Ho last week and it was one of the best experiences we have had in our 15-day travel around the south side of Korea. My mom has a lot of preferences when it comes to food, I communicated them through the form and then later through whatsapp with Jun Ho, and he was incredibly patient and tried to adjust the menu and flavours for us to the best of his ability. We ended up having a couple of dishes that were different than those on the menu scheduled for the day, and both of us enjoyed the food immensely! Since Jun Ho didn't have any clients in the afternoon, he took the time to walk around the markets with us (the ingredients he got for us were very fresh!), and invited us to stay longer if we wanted in the cooking studio. Even bought us some regionally special oranges, made us the yummy shaved ice at the end of the meal and gave us each a traditional Korean pouch as souvenir! Not to mention spending a lot of time answering our questions about the Korean society/ daily life. Jun Ho is extremely generous and passionate about giving the best Busan experience possible to his guests and not just through food. All in all, it was definitely a highlight of our trip, and we HIGHLY recommend it!

    The cooking class was amazing! Junho was great with communication prior to the day of the class. He shared lots of fun tips with us as we walked around the market. His cooking instructions were clear and the food was amazing!!! We had a wonderful time, thank you Junho!

    Our Husband and I enjoyed the experience! Juno was very warm, genuine, generous and enthusiastic in sharing about food as well as food places and things to do in Busan. He explained to us the 2 markets in Busan an even made us bingsu which was absolutely delicious. The food cooked was also really delicious and we look forward to replicating in our own home. We loved the fact that the cooking was done beside the gamcheon culture village so we could have beautiful views of the colourful houses while cooking. Pro tip: take a morning class with Juno and explore the culture village after the class to walk off all the food consumed :) If you only want a cooking class, look elsewhere but if you want a Busan cultural and culinary experience, and a new Friend in Busan, look for Juno :)

    If you are keen for a different kind of experience from the normal tours, this activity is definitely suitable for you. Despite the typhoon and my mother's inability to walk long distance, the tour guide goes all out to tailor the trip to suit our needs. The tour started with a tour of the market to shop for raw ingredients. The cooking environment is pleasant and the experience is refreshing. After all the cooking, we sat down and enjoy the fruit of our hard work. The guide patiently explain and demonstrate the required steps to me, who do not cook anything except instant noodles.
  • GUANLING 29 Sep 2018
    Juno can speak English and Chinese. We not only learn tranditional korea food, but also go food market to get our ingredient. I think I will book this class if I go busan next time.
