What to expect
Known for tender and perfectly grilled meat, as well as explosive flavors that pack a punch with every bite, it's easy to see why South Korean cuisine is making a big impact in the culinary world. Discover the country's unique yet diverse flavors, as well as their traditional culinary practices on a private cooking class or market food tour — or both! The two activities are organized by Janet's Cooking Studio, owned by the famous Seoul-native chef Janet who trained in New York City. Join the cooking class and learn how to create traditional Korean dishes. Watch the demonstration of an experienced chef and try your hand in creating the dishes, with tip and guidance from the chef from start to finish. If you'd like, book the market food tour as well to explore the maze of produce and interact with local vendors in Dongaemun Market. Taste savory and sweet snacks and long the way, and sample Korean liquores like makgeolli and soju. You'll learn that apart from its unique, remarkable taste, it's no secret that Korean cuisine is a celebration – from its seafood or meat entrée down to the vibrant and warm colors of the vegetables!
