I worked 10 years as a travel writer, and have been to more than 50 countries. While traveling to South East Asia for 5 months I took a Thai cooking class which changed my life. Taking cooking classes during a travel is not just a way to learn cooking skill, it's also a way to discover a culture and make friends. I am now a certificated Korean cook and run authentic Korean cooking class, Kimchi making class, tofu making class and Banchan ( side dish ) class around Hongdae area.
