My wife and I came from Singapore for our belated honeymoon and we're greeted with our very friendly trainer. All the ingredients were well prepared and every step of the cooking was elaborated with clear reasonings. At the end of the lesson, the trainer also surprised us with a pair of honeymoon keychains and we totally love the dishes we cooked! The entire session was delivered with high quality and I will return for more when I visit Korea again!

The traditional cooking experience was a highlight of my time in Seoul. Yoonji and co were really clear, helpful and friendly. Yoonji even helped celebrate my birthday that I hadn't shared previously.

The experience was informative, fun and so so tasty! I'd recommend this experience to anyone who enjoys cooking, is curious about South Korea and wants a genuine experience. Thanks Yoonji for a memorable birthday experience, great pictures and I love the new cooking studio.

We had an amazing time on this tour! The food was delicious and our host told us so many fun facts about Korean food and culture. I highly recommend this and I’ve already looked into other days because I’d like to go again and cook something different. You won’t regret going!

Mrs. Min Seon is a phenomenal teacher. We walked through the medicinal market and bought some ingredients for our cooking class. She explains the purpose behind each ingredient and how all of the food melds together to create a special meaning. She is knowledgeable, kind and creative. Highly recommend!

Wonderful experience because 1) the food and instruction was amazing and 2) Yoonji and her helper were very kind, fun people to be around. In 2 months in Seoul, this was one of my wife's and my very favorite activities. We also enjoyed her personal guide around a local market before cooking, such a great afternoon!

Jihee and the OME's cooking class team were so nice! We had a great time meeting people from all over the world, discovering Korean market and typical ingredients. We had the time to do many meals, and the lunch then was very satisfying. Jihee also explained Chuseok so we left with so many insights about KR! I've made the recipes a couple of times already, such good memories! Thank you!

Jihee met me at the subway stop and took me on a tour of the medicine and food markets, pointing out Korean staple foods, explaining how they're used, how they're made, and why they're important. We went on to the OME kitchen where all the ingredients were ready, and we got to slicing, dicing, and sizzling up some awesome food, including kimchi stew, Korean pancakes, japchae, and bulgogi. Jihee was a positive and encouraging teacher and lots of fun to learn from, and thanks to her even a kitchen novice like me was able to turn out a solid meal. Great time, highly recommended.

My friend told me about OME and invited me along to join her on the cooking course and I'm so glad she did!

Minseon is a great person and great instructor. We unfortunately were not able to do the market tour, due to the corona virus, however, Minseon has kindly offered to do this later in the year.

We were taught how to cook and prepare many dishes. The whole day was very informative and fun. Minseon explains everything clearly and makes the class fun.

Would highly recommend the class to anyone that is thinking about it.

I look forward to experimenting with the instructions given and the menu booklet provided.

Thank you!!

My friends and I did a cooking class with Yoonji. It was super fun and insightful and the food was soooo delicious! I can highly recommend this cooking class! Yoonji is very kind and funny and she did a great job at showing us how to cook typical Korean dishes! We enjoyed the whole experience and can’t wait to share what Yoonji taught us with our friends and family in our home countries. Thank you Yoonji for the beautiful and fun experience! ❤️
