If you love Korean food, here is a great way to learn. OME Cooking Lab is in Seoul and chef Min-seon Kim provides daily classes. Classes are in English and small, up to six per day. Chef Kim will meet you at the Yangnyeong or Gyeongdong market to pick out the ingredients for the day. She then takes you to a Korean traditional home, prepares the meal together with the class participants and enjoys the meal at the end of the day.
Ome means five tastes in Korean. Chef Kim has had many foreigners visit her classes from all over the world, such as U.S., Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, the Netherlands and Russia. Her classes are sensitive to religion and allergies.
Classes are about $50, which include the meal. The daily classes prepare not just a single dish but a meal, usually three dishes, a soup, an appetizer and main dish. For example, a menu could be: bean spout soup, pajun and boolgogi.
Kim was recently featured on Arirang TV. She is also trained in Korean traditional deserts. If you ever visit Korea, book in advance. For more information visit her website: 5tastes.modoo.at.
