Korean food Cooking Class Tour
TAGY Travel Korea
It is said that to truly understand a country's culture, you must first experience its food. If you want to learn more about Korea's traditional food, there is no better way than to try your hand at making the food yourself. In Seoul, a variety of cooking programs are available for international visitors, offering lessons on how to make popular dishes like kimchi, bulgogi, bibimbap, tteok, and even royal cuisine. The length of each program varies depending on the menu, but most programs can be completed within half a day. Joining one of these programs will make your trip to Korea even more memorable, so give it your all to make some tasty traditional Korean food! We take you for a pleasant walk from venue to venue to explore tastes, culture, and history of Korea and Seoul after cooking class. Our main goal is to offer a variety of domestic dishes, snacks and beverages served in authentic places, talk about and show how life in Korea is today and how it came to be.
Discover Korean culture through a hands-on cooking class and learn recipes that you can recreate at home. Shop for fresh ingredients at a local market. Whip up Korean dishes with professional chefs.
You will have all of your own equipment, prep tables and a stove station at your disposal. At the end of the class, all participants sit together at a communal table and enjoy what they created. Sit back and enjoy as we transform from cooking school into a restaurant ensuring you and your new friends have time to chat and relax.

Galmaegisal alley at Jongro-3ga
As dusk falls, people start to gather in the small alleyways, filling the empty seats. Soon, the smoke from the grilling meat and chatter about the day's work fills the air. This is the scene during the afternoon rush hour in Jongno-3-ga's "Gogi golmok," or "Galmaegisal Alley." There are many meat
restaurants in this alley, and they are famous for their delicious Galmaegisal(pork skirt meat). The quality of the meat really stand out, redder in appearance similar to beef and having a definitive beefy texture. The thick metal grill cooks the meat evenly without any flare-ups, and the stand-out sauces (ground perilla seeds, nutty bean flour, and lemon-infused soy sauce) were perfect.
