This cooking experience in Melbourne is like no other! Not only will you be able to explore Queen Victoria Market with an informed tour guide, but you will also participate in our relaxed and playful Asian cooking class!

The day will be broken up into two parts:

Queen Victoria Market tour
Our experience kicks off at the entrance to Queen Victoria Markets where you will meet up with your tour guide and explore the delightful food culture and rich history of the area. After an hour of tasting and shopping, we will head downtown to Otao Kitchen to begin your cooking journey!

Cooking class
You will be introduced to and guided through classic Asian cooking techniques and flavours, whilst enjoying a glass of wine (or two!). Together we will share our completed dishes, paired with selected beers and wines. As you enjoy your lunch, our chefs will share stories about each of the dishes. Plus, no cooking experience is needed!

In the Asian cooking class, we will make a selection of dishes including sushi, dumplings, spring rolls, noodles, and more! Each guest can enjoy two complimentary wines and purchase additional drinks if desired.

Gain confidence in Asian cooking and become involved in the food and culture of Melbourne. Learn how to appreciate and work with new ingredients and techniques, all in a fun and interactive space!

This food experience is perfect for corporate entertainment, team-building events and social get-togethers.

ABOUT US

Otao kitchen is a cooking school and event space with a mission for people to come together to cook, connect, celebrate. We believe cooking and eating should be an experience, not just a meal. We created Otao kitchen as an extension of our passions to cook, share and inspire.

EXPERT IN COOKING CLASSES

Otao kitchen was launched in Melbourne, Australia in July 2014, with the goal of celebrating the rich and varied cooking experiences of Melbourne’s immigrant multicultural communities. Its founder, Chef Ha Nguyen, originally from Hanoi shares his passion for food, instructing customers in the exotic diaspora of Asian and around the world cuisine.

WHAT WE DO BEST?

Today our guests can get inspired by cooking with our local and international chefs, listen to their cooking and travel experiences in Asia and around the world and bring some cooking and cultural tips and tricks home. With the nods at the diversity of communities within Melbourne, Otao kitchen features an array of global food experiences from Indian to Japan to Mexico and more.

In 2020 with the challenge of global Covid 19 pandemic, we set out to capture the curriculum of our hands-cooking classes and deliver it online to home cooks in Australia and across the world to guide you to cooking success and better health.

Products and services: cooking master classes, private and corporate events, catering and event services, kid and school programs, and gift vouchers.
