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 dining time). You can start with a walking tour around a local market and a supermarket, where O’ngo food experts will give you tips on picking local, seasonal ingredients. The market tour starts at 9:30am and after 2pm beginner class at the school(beginner class only). You’ll continue your cooking experience after the tour. First you are given a 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.


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 lollipop, Hotteok: a cinnamon, peanut fried pancake and patbingsu: shaved ice topped with sweet red bean, sweet milk, and various toppings.  This class is great for kids and families.
