Amazing cooking class!
, Aug 2021
The best cooking tour in Seoul. Hello K shows you an all around Korean cooking experience. Starting at the market choosing your own vegetables, then you learn how to cook them the Korean style. Finally you have a great full dinner. I'm surprised with this cooking class and definitely recommend Hello K.
Home cooking class
, Aug 2021
I learned quite a lot about the culture of Korean food and cooking. The instructor was able to flexibly discuss cooking after I shared my Korean experiences and I was able to cook some of the best dishes I tasted during my time in Korea. I liked that it was a home cooking class, aka, you don't need a fancy kitchen to cook the meal.
Cooking delicious food in a joyful and welcoming environment

I sincerely enjoyed the whole evening, from an informative stroll through the market to being able to enjoy a homemade meal. Junghee is an incredibly welcoming and passionate host, who has created a wonderful atmosphere to learn and enjoy. Although simple, this was surely the best bibimbap I had so far. Junghee will take care of everything from clicking photos for the memory to sending you the recipes, so all you need to do is to enjoy the experience! All in all, it was a wonderful experience and I would definitely recommend taking Junghees course.
A must do while in Seoul

I had a wonderful time exploring the market and cooking with Junghee, an amazing guide and chef. With just a few key ingredients we made a great Korean menu!

Sarah was very engaging. We first did the market tour and she was very knowledgeable and explained the tradition behind the food. Next we did the cooking class and that was so fun. I recommend her class to anyone.
A Sunday night in Seoul
, Nov 2019
On a rainy, cold Sunday night, alone in Seoul, what do I do but join a cooking class. While I signed up for the experience of learning about the culture and cuisine, I came away with friends. Our host was most energetic and enthusiastic, and knowledgeable - in short she was fireball of fun as we toured through the local markets, meeting the merchants, sampling the wares, and buying our ingredients. Three Swedes, two Venezuelans, one Chinese, one Hong Kongese, and this Yank, all gathered together, cooking, laughing, sharing our stories, and drinking in of the hospitality of our host. I have done classes in NYC and Barcelona - and this outshone them all!

This was exactly the kind of class I was hoping for. The instructor was super friendly and gave us a truly authentic cooking experience. Its more like being in the home kitchen of a Korean friend. And she answered all the questions I have been dying to ask, so that aferwards I was knowledgeable enough to shop for the ingredients and recreate the meals myself. Perfect!
Great fun!

We had a great time with Sarah and learned a lot. I really enjoyed all the colours and smells in the market. Thanks for a fun day!
A memorable evening

My teenage daughter and I both loved this activity. The host was very friendly and the evening was really well organised. The market tour was interesting and we enjoyed being encouraged to try some samples. The step-by-step cooking instructions were easy to follow. The dinner tasted amazing and there was so much food! It was a really great night.
Nicht verpassen!
