“Wanting to share my passion and knowledge of Korean cuisine is what sparked the idea of starting The Korean Pantry.
Something fundamental in Korean cooking is knowing how to balance everything. How one dish enhances or cancels the effects of another. And I truly believe that it is something missing or forgotten in Western food culture.
Probiotics, and therefore kimchi and other fermented Korean dishes, are now proven to have a beneficial impact not only on your gut health. but also on your mental well-being.
Korean food is more than a fabulous mix of delicious dishes. It is food that is good for your health and your soul.
By showing you how to make kimchi and other dishes, I will share more than recipes with you. There will be culture facts, history, personal anecdotes, travel stories and above all, great fun.
I will soon share below the different classes I organise, from making kimchi to a full 5 courses Korean meal. Stay tuned !”
My classes are taught in the comfort of your own home, for up to 6 people (depending space).
I can travel all around London or close to the South East London area. Other locations might incur additional travelling expenses.
The classes last about 2 1/2 hours and are fully hands on. Expect to chop chop chop ! They are followed by a lunch or dinner made with the dishes we’ll create together plus some additional dishes I will bring or cook in front of you. All ingredients are included in the class price and you will receive the full recipes afterwards.
Class prices vary depending the menu chosen. The minimum charged is £200 (for 1 or 2 people) and then £90 for each additional person.Full payment is requested on booking. If you were unable to attend the class, I offer either partial refund (75% refunded) or a reschedule of the class if given more than 7 days notice. The class will need to be reschedule in the following 3 months.
Team building events, Christmas parties, stag/hen do, birthdays, Kpop fans, I can organise a group class for you. I work with a selection of restaurants and kitchens available for private hire. Get in touch and I will tailor something especially for your needs.
