In this hands-on cooking class you'll learn how to make Chinese food the authentic way.

Chinese cuisine has been around for thousands of years and is ingrained in Chinese culture and philosophy, with different foods often used to balance the body's yin and yang. In this social cooking class, you will learn all about Chinese cuisine and how to make some Chinese dishes yourself.

Led by a hands-on instructor you'll see a series of cooking demonstrations and be taught about best practices for keeping your knives and kitchen equipment in top shape. You'll have some hands-on practice chopping, rolling and preparing the dishes while you learn about different ingredients, spices and how to create the right flavour balance.

The cooking lesson will conclude with a sit-down meal where everyone can enjoy a glass of wine and the delicious Chinese dishes you have created.

The menu:
Mapo Tofu - Tofu with Chilli Bean Paste
Ganbian Sijidou - Dry Fried Greenbeans
Dong Po Rou - Braised Pork Belly
Chao Shuo- Sichuan Wontons
La Yu- Chilli Oil

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.

Such an incredible class that packed in a lot of delicious authentic dishes. Dylan was fantastic at talking us through the how and why for each step so make sure we took home traditional lesson and ended up with a delicious dishes to enjoy.
The only suggestion I have for the ingredients for each meal to be better segregated, many participants got confused over what the quantities of garlic and ginger were for! Didn't impact the dishes, just created some frustration.
