Chris was amazing. Did a nice little tour of the market to start off with. Learned about some Korean food culture and even got some choice in what we bought for our meal. The cooking class was simple and Chris gave easy instructions. The food itself was exactly what we wanted and we even had enough to take some home. Overall everything was very well thought out with lots of personal touches. We appreciated the short informational video about Korean food, the little country flags and how Chris set up the table for us to enjoy as a group. Highly recommend this tour.

Hands down the best cooking class my wife and I have ever taken. Chris had everything meticulously planned, you are in a professional style kitchen while in the comfort of his home. He takes care of every detail imaginable. There were many thoughtful touches that he provided in addition to what’s listed, I don’t want to list them here because it was awesome being surprised during the class! The food you make is incredible and he gave us additional time to ensure we understood everything. We will 100% take this class again next time we’re in Seoul. I would recommend taking it early on in the trip because he gives an in-depth market tour which is super helpful for future visits and then you know what everything is that the markets of Seoul have to offer.
Perfect activity!

Chris gets 5 stars, 6 if I could. He is so dedicated he held the class even though I was the only student. We visited a local market and made delicious Korean dishes. The class was very entertaining and I learned so much. Thanks Chris! Enjoy!

This class was wonderful. The chef spoke clear and precise English and was easy to understand. The tour of the market was great being able to see local and fresh food. As a cook in America I found the class to be very informative. The dishes we cooked tasted amazing and the experience was wonderful. It was an experience I'll definitely do again on my next trip to Korea!
An excellent and friendly Korean cooking class

We liked the cooking course by Chris very much and highly recommend it! Chris is a very friendly and skillful teacher, who speaks English fluently and has an excellent pronunciation. He met us at the subway station and made a brief tour through the local market explaining some principles of Korean cuisine and typical dishes. The cooking class was done in a beautifully decorated room and was very well scheduled. Given we are vegetarians, Chris readily offered vegetarian alternatives to the dishes that were initially planned. We cooked a light salad (with Korean dressing), a popular Korean rice dish bibimbap, tteok-galbi (with tofu) and a vegetable pancake. One could see that Chris has excellently planned the time course of the class, so that time was efficiently used. After cooking, we enjoyed the dishes in a traditional Korean interior. Finally, every participant got a photo and a copy of recipe, so that we can reproduce these new dishes at home. Summing up, that was a very interesting experience both of learning to cook as well as as learning an important aspect of Korean culture. Thank you so much for that, Chris!

I believe that food always brings people together and if you want to start to feel at home in South Korea and have an idea about Korean cuisine...its an absolute definite with Chris at his K-cooking class studio in Mangwon. So much fun as he shares his lovely cooking studio with his guests. Before reaching the K-cooking studio, Chris walks you through the Mangwon Market, pointing out foods that are used in Korean cuisine. You can select the veges for your Bibimbab and dessert! Chris opens the door to a beautifully adorned dining room with Korean masks and dolls where you will dine after preparing your meal. Before you leave, Chris gifts each participant with the recipes for the dishes you prepared and a personal picture for your memories in South Korea! 많은 감사Chris, for a wonderful evening and dinner! I'll be back!

Before my solo trip to Seoul I knew I wanted to sign up for a cooking class. I was so lucky to run into Chef Chris Korean Cooking Class because it was much more than I expected it to be. He was so friendly, knowledgeable, easy going and made a friend for life. Besides the cooking and delicious food that we ate, I think my favorite part was going to the local market and learning about the culture and history of Korean food. It was so much fun overall and would highly recommend it. VLOG on my channel, Kuya Jep Eats and Travels, will be up soon. Thanks again Chris!
