Best Korean Cooking Class in Seoul
If you’re thinking about signing up for a one-day Korean cooking class in Seoul but are not sure if it’s worth it, hear me out: it is! I’ve tried it, and there were a few things that I picked up that I don’t think I would if I just watch online tutorials. It’s more than just the recipe or technique; it’s the way you’ll be made to learn what tastes 100% Korean. Plus, the professional chef who taught the class responded to my burning questions about Korean food willingly, so I was really satisfied.
If you too want to learn how to cook tasty Korean dishes, check out the details of this Korean cooking class in Seoul:
1. Korean Cooking Class for Beginners
O’ngo Food Communications is a company that promotes Korean food to foreigners. They offer cooking classes that cater to different types of learners and food tours that will take you to all the good spots in Seoul.
If you have no background about Korean cuisine or cooking in general, I suggest booking the 2-hour Korean cooking class for beginners. Here they will teach you how to make two classic Korean dishes, which you may just call your next comfort food.
1.1 Haemul Pajeon & Sundubu Jjigae Class
If you want to learn how to make the savory seafood pancake (haemul pajeon or 해물파전) and the soft tofu stew (sundubu jjigae or 순두부찌개), here’s the class schedule: 10am-12pm on Monday, 2pm-4pm on Tuesday, and 10am-12pm on Saturday.

To learn how to make the iconic Korean mixed rice (bibimbap or 비빔밥) and the flavorful soybean paste stew (doenjang jjigae or 된장찌개), book this beginner Korean cooking class in Seoul on a Wednesday (runs from 10am-12pm).
1.4 Dakbokkeumtang & Japchae
The last beginner class option teaches how to cook spicy chicken stew (dakbokkeumtang or 닭볶음탕) and glass noodle salad (japchae or 잡채). It’s offered every Thursday and Friday from 10am-12pm.
