Learn the art of preparing a homemade Korean meal as a local food blogger shows you her secrets. Head to a private home for a tasty, hands-on lesson, cooking together to create dishes handed down through generations. At the end, enjoy good conversation while feasting on your accomplishments.

Make your way to the Gangnam neighborhood to meet Jessie, a local foodie who started a blog featuring traditional Korean dishes handed down from her mother. Get right to work as she shows you how to put together a complete home-cooked meal. Mix and season with essential ingredients not normally made from scratch, such as the thick soybean paste doenjang jjigae as well as gochujuang, a pungent condiment made with fermented soybeans, red chili, and glutinous rice.

Once your work is done, it's time to reap the rewards of your labor. Sit down to a meal starring the dishes you just prepared, all served on beautifully handmade ceramic dishes. Pick out the notes of Asian pear, ginger, and garlic in thin-sliced bulgogi beef, savor the flavorful broth of doenjang-jjigae (tofu stew), and munch on the perfectly sweet and salty glass noodles of japchae. Homemade kimchi adds extra spice, while ice-cold beer cools things down.

While you share your meal, Jessie offers her insights into Korea's culinary and cultural heritage. Leave with your belly full, a glimpse into a local's life, and delicious new recipes to take home.
