YangChul is a real sweetheart! She is very personal and shared many cultural aspects of the cooking and food experience! I always take her class every time I visit Seoul and she never fails to amaze me!

The experience was fantastic! We learned to cook Korean traditional food and tasted different kind of sauces. The dinner was very delicious. Yangchul’s home felt very homely. If I had a chance to go back to Korea again, I’ll visit again!

We were very pleased. I live 8 years in Seoul, but for the first time I felt such an open and friendly atmosphere. The food was incredibly tasty and now we have a chance to cook it ourselves (well, or at least try it). She took into account all our wishes and allowed to shoot the process itself. I am delighted and advise everyone.

Absolutely superb. What brilliant company it was with Yangchul. Great care and joy was experienced at this cooking class. She accommodated my 100% vegan request. Thank you so much.
