Our mission

Our mission is to make Korean cuisine accessible to everyone. We often notice that our guests think that:

  1. Korean cuisine is extremely difficult
  2. Korean cuisine is only for advanced cooks
  3. Korean cuisine takes a long time
  4. Kimchi is hard to make

  • With our 3,5 hour Korean cooking class we want to show you that Korean cuisine can be very accessible, even for novice cooks.
  • Furthermore, we are happy to show you how you can prepare a full Korean meal in less than 2 hours.
  • We use ingredients that are often widely available.

Authentic Korean cooking starts with the right ingredients. However, you find many variants and brands of certain ingredients in the Asian supermarket or Korean stores. We explain which ingredients and brands are best to use, and why we use them.
