I had a weekend in Seoul and didn't know what to do. Luckily I stumbled onto Janet's page on Tripadvisor! She was warm, kind and generous - and speaks great English. I loved the tour of the traditional outdoor market, and the cooking was super fun. Four full hours and I got to take home a ton of leftovers! Thank you Janet : )

I spent nice four hours with my husband and 2-year old daughter. We´ve learnt four delicious Korean dishes (Jjimdak, Seafood Paejon, Mushroom Japchae and Bulgogi Salad). You can also choose other Korean dishes you want to learn to cook. It is possible for people with some dietary restrictions or specific lifestyle (vegan, vegetarian, etc.) as well. Janet was nicely outspoken, friendly, speaking English perfectly. At the same time she was professional and well-informed in terms of cooking. I would also praise Janet for quick responses and generally good communication.

I’m new to Seoul and are not familiar with Korean cuisine. A friend and I decided to book a day at Janet’s cooking studio. After meeting Janet at a cafe, my friend and I joined her on a visit to one of the local markets. The market was a fantastic experience. First you smell the wonderful food cooking at the different stalls, then the beautiful colorful fruit and vegetables everywhere. Janet speaks perfect English and could explain all the foreign (to us) fruit and vegetables. Not even the cloudy weather could dampen our spirits. After purchasing a few products, we left for the cooking studio. A beautiful, well equipped apartment where the teaching continued. Janet taught us 4 recipes. Each one absolutely delicious. I strongly recommend anyone to enroll for a cooking class. Not only do you learn about the food and cooking of it, you will also make a friend. Thank you Janet for an unforgettable experience!

I’m glad we opted for a session including market tour - what a great introduction to Korean food! Impressive variety of new fruit, vegetables and fish. Numerous opportunities for travel photography! Janet is a great guide, fun and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our cooking session as well as the delicious food that we cooked. Definitely recommended! Can’t wait for having new classes with her!

I had previously done Janet's market food tour and had a really good time, so I booked her cooking class to learn how to make some of my favorite foods from the market tour and a few others I was curious about. This session started a shorter market tour of a different market, then we went to Janet's cooking studio, where she had all the ingredients ready to make budae-jjigae, mung bean pancakes, and bibimbap. She is a fun, informative, and very positive cooking teacher, and all the dishes came out delicious. The dishes were a fair bit larger than she and I could eat on our own, though, so I left with a bag of tupperware containers and foil-wrapped goodies to take back to my hotel and enjoy in the days after. If you're at all interested in Korean cooking and want to give it a try, Janet makes it accessible, fun, and tasty.
