Beginner Cooking Classes

These beginner classes are introductory courses for those new to cooking or to Korean food. The cooking classes are taught in English. Classes last 1.5-2 hours (including lunch or dinner  time& market tour). For the beginner class, there will be a short walking tour of a traditional market near our cooking studio. The market tour starts at 9:30am for the morning beginner class. For the afternoon beginner class, the market tour starts after the class finishes(No market tours for Saturday classes and the Korean sweet desserts class). During the class, first there will be chef’s demonstration on how to make the dishes, and then you will make your own dishes. Beginner classes are held regularly – see the bottom of this page for the current schedule. The beginner class costs 65,000won and you must pay a 20,000won deposit (20USD) per class to complete your reservations. Reservations must be made at least 1 day in advance, by 4 PM of the day before the cooking class.  For the Monday classes, reservations must be made by 4 PM on the previous Friday.


Current beginner-level classes:

B1: Bulgogi and Seasonal Kimchi (Cucumber or Napa Cabbage)

Kimchi is Korea’s most well-known dish for its tantalizing spiciness and health properties. In Korea there are more than 130 different types of kimchi. In this class you’ll get to learn how to make either cucumber or napa cabbage kimchi (seasonal and depends on ingredients) and bulgogi, beef marinated with soy and sesame. Kimchi can be packed to go upon request.

B2: Seafood Pancake (Haemul Pajeon) and Soft Tofu Stew (Sundubu)

Sundubu has become a hit food among the young in cities like Los Angeles and New York City because of it’s creamy texture and spice. You will learn to make this soft tofu stew with seafood. It can be made spicy or non-spicy. To go with this dish, we’ll also be making a savory seafood pancake.

B3: Stone Bowl Bibimbap (Dolsot Bibimbap) and Seasonal Salad (Geotjeolri)

This is a classic Korean dish topped with various Korean veggies, meat, and egg served in a heated stone bowl. The stone bowl makes the rice (especially on the bottom) nice and crispy. With this class, you’ll also learn how to make salad made with seasonal greens.

B4: Spicy Chicken Stew (Dakbokkeumtang) and Glass Noodle Salad (Japchae)

These are two of our most requested dishes: a colorful glass noodle salad dish made with a mix of different vegetables and meat and a spicy chicken barbecue dish. This spicy chicken dish will show you how to use one of the most versatile Korean ingredients: gochujang (red chili paste).

B5: Korean Sweet Desserts Class

For those looking for something sweet and delicious, this class features Korea’s famous desserts. You’ll learn to make Bopki: a sugar, caramel candy, Hotteok: a cinnamon, peanut fried pancake and patbingsu: shaved ice topped with sweet red bean, dried fruits&berries and  roasted bean powder.  It will be served with milk. ( Market tour is not included)
