We booked a food tour with Janet, and we couldn't have wished for anything more. Janet was passionate, knowledgeable, informative, and we felt that she went out of her way to make our tour special and personal. We got to taste Food that we would never have bought if it wasn't for Janet. Delicious Korean pancakes, Soju, chicken feet, blood sausage, Korean "sushi roll" + + We learnt lots about the fresh food at the market, but she also took us to other markets and streets nearby to show us more, and we ended up with a delicious dessert at the final destination. Now I wish we had booked the cooking class as well. Next time for sure!

Janet went above and beyond in her cooking class! We did so much in such a short time. I left the class with a full tummy, recipes and very practical knowledge for preparing the dishes. I highly recommend her cooking class for anyone, but especially if you want to make Korean dishes when you get home.

Everything about this whole experience was exceptional. Janet is delightful and is very knowledgeable about all forms of cooking. I eat all foods, but she can customize for vegan and vegetarian needs which is very unique. Her studio is beautiful and we were able to take away both recipes and left over food. Although this is advertised as a "food tour" it is so much more. Truly it is a market tour, cultural tour, cooking class, and dinner with a personal chef all combined! At the end of the evening she took us on a lovely walk by the river so that we could catch the most convenient train back to our hotel which was so, so appreciated. Having taken this class I would happily return to Seoul and do it all over again so that I could spend more time learning from Janet.

It was a pleasure to take Janets cooking class about Korean food. She showed us how to make authentic Korean food while using ingredients that can be easily found even in other parts of the world. So we will definitely be able to cook her recepies in our homecontries. Janet had a very kind and entertaining way of introducing the Korean culture and kitchen to us.

My family of 5 had the pleasure of participating in Janet's Market Tour and Cooking Class. She led us through the intricacies of Korean cooking during our time together, and really showed us step by step how to prepare several types of sauces essential to Korean and main dishes. She uses very light approach to make the food more appealing to a Western palette, and we started at 2 and ended at 8:30 and it felt like we were truly at some grand dinner party. This was a wonderful experience for my family, as well as the two lovely women we met from Hawaii who we took the class with.
