For most of us, the idea of South America food sparks notions of adventure, diversity, vibrant colour, fun and passion. Nearly all of which can be experienced through its unique and ancient local cuisine.
This South American cooking class will take you on an adventure from Lima to Buenos Aires, exploring new ingredients and flavours, which perhaps have never graced your pantry or your palate, but will open a door that will leave you wanting more.
If you're looking for fun things to do in Melbourne, join us for an interactive and hands-on cooking class featuring the fresh flavors of four Latin American countries. Start with Peru where you'll make a ceviche appetizer filled with coriander, lime, cucumbers and tomato.
Next, you'll make a stop in Mexico with a jicama and avocado salad. Argentina is next with a chimichurri churrasco steak and papas bravas (potatos). Plus you can try the famous plantains in Bogota and end with the sweet tastes of a Cuban upside-down guava flan for dessert.
So what are you waiting for? Join us for this unique culinary experience!

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.
