Hello,

I have been to many countries to travel and also worked as a chef for around 9 years. I've been to Mongolia, Brazil, Germany, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand to name a few. After my long travel, still I would like to meet travelers and foreigners and loved to cook Korean food for my foreign friends when i was traveling. That's why I started cooking class in central of Seoul and want to share my recipe.

My most experience is Korean food and I have abundant experience in the kitchen so I can teach you how to make and prepare traditional Korean food.

My idea of cooking is heating up pre made dinners from the supermarket. I love Korean food and when I found Joungy’s cooking class, I knew I wanted to join her class while in Seoul. I picked her class from the others on the list because of the small size, her unique home, and all the 5 star reviews!!
i had a excellent experience with Joungy and she deserves 10 stars. I was lucky that I was her only student during the lunch class so I got to ask her a lot questions about cooking,recipes, ingredients and Korean culture in general (even about Korean drama and stars) She is such a kind person, an excellent teacher and speaks English too! She was so patient with me as I kept messing up cutting the vegetables! Her home is so warm and inviting that it felt like I was visiting a good friend and we were cooking lunch. The food was delicious of course and I was so full when I left. The best part is you get to take home a small jar of Kimchi. I enjoyed going through the market with her and trying to identify what the items were, while she was shopping for the fresh ingredients for the class.
I can’t say enough positive things about Joungy and her cooking class. I enjoyed it and will definitely try the recipes at home. As I said she deserves more than 5 stars. She was so gracious that she offered to contact her if I had any questions while in Seoul and gave me tips where to but cheaper souvenirs.
Next time you’re in Seoul, join her class. Even if you’re not into cooking, go for the delicious food served in an authentic Korean Hanok! Thank you for everything Joungy!

My cooking class with Joungy was even better than expected! The location was inside a market next to Ahyeon station. There was only one other student allowing for lots of personal attention.
Joungy showed us the ingredients she was buying from the local merchants and then took us to her teaching area in the market.

We made an appetizer(stir fry glass noodle and vegetable), main dish (spicy stir fry pork), dessert, (crepes with nuts) and kimchee. The recipes were easy to follow and I think I could easily re-create them at home. Some o the ingredients will have to be purchased at an Asian market but I live near plenty of those.
After preparing each dish we paused to eat it at her dining table. Delicious! She gave us our kimchee in containers to take home.

Joungy is a great teacher. Her class is very well structured, the explanations very clear. The dishes we prepared were delicious. A brief introduction on Korean cooking basics would make the class even more perfect, but this would also require more time. The Namdaemun market tour at the end was also very informative. Highly recommended.
