We did the Sunday class. Made a delicious 3 course meal (larger than we could finish In one sitting!) and tried many side dishes. Joungy was so lovely and answered all out questions. It was great to learn about Korea and its good. Thank you!

What an amazing experience. Joungy was incredibly helpful from the time of booking and throughout the class. We were lucky to be the only two people so were able to spend more time leaning about the Korean culture, how the dishes we made and how they have changes over the years.
