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.

Gina Fiske Oct 2021


Overall the preparation was good, l couldn't find the video link before the class.
Techer chef was experienced and answer all questions . It was a little fast to keep up at every step but l managed to make tasty basic moon dumplings.
1 person had difficulty with the Dough and dropped out and l think should have been helped to start a new batch with his help as there was a small group .

A bit too fast and the camera work needs improvement . It was hard for him to show up with the cameras provided. Not enough editing between steps and not enough social interaction

Victoria Talaina Sep 2020


This class was great! Being the first of hopefully many, this was also my first time taking a class via zoom and overall cooking class. I think it really happened being sent a video and recipe prior, just so I know exactly what I’m getting myself into. Great job everyone! Hope to take more classes soon.
