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.

I received this class as a gift from a dear friend for my "big" birthday during lockdown and it was the perfect present. The teacher Dylan was very clear, and went at a good pace. The class was for 2 hours but it felt like 30 minutes, as very engaging. I regularly make dumplings but have never made the wrappers and this is what I was most excited about and believe was the highlight of this class. The instructions were great, and Dylan made sure we were all keeping up and showed us clearly with his camera so we knew what ours were supposed to look like. I will never buy wonton wrappers again. I also enjoyed learning to make the different dumpling shapes, and to top it off the dumplings were delicious along with the sauce.

Dylan was very clear in his instructions, waited for the class to keep up and gave lots of little tips along the way.

Patrick Farnan Oct 2021


Great Experience virtually, had some tasty dumplings, was super quick so a bit slower would be awesome

Shauney James Oct 2021


Such a great time! Thank you so much

Trudi Ross Oct 2021


The class was fun, it was great to learn and doing something totally different, the host was lovely and very informative and his instructions and demonstrations were really clear. At times I felt some of it went a little fast but that is me being very new to it, as it all came together really easily at the end and we could continue on our own afterwards which I did with confidence. thank you, I am keen to do an in person cooking class again!

Celestine Radford Oct 2021


Did I miss the part where we were told to buy mince? It wasn’t on the information sheet in the box- I didn’t complete my dumplings because I had no mince

Tom Newbold Oct 2021


Dylan was really friendly and easy to understand. Is was awesome, very enjoyable and the dumplings were so tasty I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to give it a go

Ineke Mast Oct 2021


Had a great session with Dylan and learned so much! Thank you

Renee Mariette Oct 2021


Brilliant. Thoroughly enjoyable

Hayley Tan Sep 2021


Class was great but some feedback - it would be nice if we were informed that not all ingredients will be used before we were told to soak all the stuff so I'd be able to store these easily after if not used entirely. Apart from that, great class - lots of fun!
