Chloe M “Incredible Experience!”
We had the most wonderful time at Celine's class. It was such a different cooking class experience as we were invited into Celine's home in Seoul, which allowed us to experience the home life in South Korea. She is very knowledgeable about Korean food and made it so much fun to not only cook in her kitchen, but to enjoy a traditional South Korean dining experience. She is very kind and funny and keeps her classes small and intimate so you have the opportunity to get as much help as you need and to ask lots of questions. I would highly recommend her class to anyone looking for a difference cooking class experience!
Loma R “Excellent take home gift.”
After having done quite a few cooking classes all over the globe I have to say that Celines class is by far the best one. By keeping the groups small she can truly let you appreciate and experience the joy of cooking korean cuisine. Her knowledge and overall aesthetic is very pleasing. My favorite thing was her recipe gifts she offered when we were finished. Instead of the usual sheets of paper that get lost she provides a set of recipe postcards with lovely photos of the meal and simple recipe instructions on the back. She mentioned that they are easy to pop on the fridge with a magnet which I have in fact done. They also make a lovely gift if you happen to ask for an extra set . Overall I highly rate the whole experience and really appreciate the thoughts and effort celine has put into her class. I will recommending her class to anyone who travels to South Korea. Also her Instagram account four_seasons_cooking is worth following if, like me, you miss the food and culture! So thank you Celine! All the best.

Celine is an excellent teacher, and her home-based cooking studio is serene and lovely backdrop for an an informative and engaging class. Food preparation was hands-on, the explanation was well-organized and well-paced, and I feel quite confident about being able to prepare these dishes in my own kitchen in the near future. Celine's choice of dishes for this class was excellent: we were able to complete all four dishes without rushing, and the end result was a selection of truly delicious and authentically Korean foods that are sure to be favorites. Although the primary focus of the class was cooking (and eating), we also learned a lot about Korean food culture. Celine and her mother are delightful and made the class a great experience for a foreigner interested in learning more about Korean kitchens, and the trip to the market afterward answered many questions about unfamiliar ingredients.
Phoebe F “Amazing”
Being that we arrived during the Chinese New Year, the outdoor markets were closed, so Celine kindly added another course to our class which were to die for. Celine picked us up form the subway an dropped us back off after our course was complete. Celine really took her time with us explaining every dish in detail, her knowledge with regards to Korean cuisine is extensive making her the perfect teacher for this class truly a wonderful time and I wish Celine and her sister nothing but the best. If you are in Seoul you should absolutely take this course you will not be disappointed. We were also given recipe cards at the end of dinner so that we can try the dishes on our own back at home. Thanks again for a great experience!
