Korean Wellbeing Cooking Class

I've been taking about it for a long time, but I finally got around to taking a Korean cooking class!  I ended up taking the class through the continuing education department at Jeju National University.  The class is going pretty well, and actually now is almost over.  I think there's only two more weeks actually after tonight.  The class I'm taking is kind of a class for never-evers, and we're really learning pretty basic dishes.  I really love Korean food and am learning how actually pretty simple it is to cook.  Sometimes it can be pretty labor intensive, in cutting vegetables into very small strips for Japchae, or Kimbap (California Roll).  It can also be relatively easy, such as Pa Jun (Vegetable and Seafood Pancake).  All in all it's going well.  I'm taking a break for a couple of weeks, but I'll be back next week to learn some Doenjang Jjigae and Sun Du Bu, two of my favorite soups!

    Dan! Still following your blog in New Zealand. You should post the recipe for Doenjang Jjigae once you learn how to make it. It's my favorite Korean dish. Ever.
