The class uses pork in one dish. If you or anyone in your group require ingredient changes, please let us know. We can arrange different dishes according to each person's dietary requirements. Knife usage is required. We will guide you through safely.

We love this cooking class very much. It is a good idea to put our hands on to make kimchi.
Simon let us know every step and reason behind. He thoroughly explained the difference among Chinese, Korean and Japanese methods. We also made delicious dishes with their pre-made kimchi. Now we are eagerly waiting to taste our own kimchi at home.

Of course, we tasted their delicious homemade pickles. We will definitely back to learn another pickled vegetables class to explore all three countries ways.

Teacher's response
