  • Korea. A typical Korean meal consists of several small dishes that are seasoned with ginger, soy sauce, sesame seeds and other lovely flavors. A signature for Korean cuisine is the generous use of different spices compared to its neighboring countries China and Japan. During the cooking class we will prepare e.g. bulgogi beef, bibim guksu noodles and bindaetteok pancakes. Come and fall in love with Korean flavors!
  • Tuscany. Traditional Tuscan cuisine is famed around the world for a reason: the simplicity of the dishes brings out the natural flavours of seasonal quality produce.
