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.

The chef was amazing and so informative! Definitely recommend. I learnt some great new ways to wrap my dumplings, making them look like restaurant quality.

Really enjoyed the Dumpling cooking class. Very easy to follow instructions. Instructor was friendly and very helpful. I have a disability and found this class very easy to do, with a little bit of help from my support worker.

Would have like it if the chef had gone a bit slower - we needed more time to accomplish each step

Very easy than I thought. The teacher has shown different ways to shape dumplings which is great. Highly recommend the class to my family and everyone.

David Henry Dec 2021


Thanks for the class. It's was a lot of fun, and the dumplings were delicious!

Daniel Ng Dec 2021


I didn't receive my ingredients/box in time, so I was unable to participate with the rest of my group.

Robyn Hodge Dec 2021


I found this a fun and informative 2 hours! Even though it was a remote session (and would have been more fun if we were all together in the same room), it was engaging and the instructions were clear and very helpful. It was fairly intense and so you couldn't afford to miss any of the steps as there was quite a lot to get through - this reduced the time for team banter and conversation. However, I now have the confidence to make dumplings on my own

Szeman Leung Dec 2021


The lag in connection over the course was a little disruptive. Great passion by chef. Thank you

Cecily Ducksbury Dec 2021


I enjoyed the class. Easy to follow and chef was kind.

Clara McMullin Dec 2021


Great class, informative and engaging for a work team virtual cooking event. The speed of the class was very fast for the amount covered! Delicious end result, for my first time ever making Dumplings!

David Roberts Dec 2021


Great session. Easy to follow, very tasty and something I will be making at home.

Fantastic communication.
I thoroughly loved the package that arrived. I really like that it came with a paper and video version of the recipe as well for later or if you couldn't make it on that occasion. I think this is a really good class for people who are beginners or even would like to broaden their skills and styles of cooking.

Matthew Sheers Nov 2021


Thanks for a great class. I recommend this as a fun class for anyone to try.

Julie Pike Oct 2021


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.

Kerryn Plummer Oct 2021


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!

Kay-Jay Earl Oct 2021


Great class and awesome teacher. Thank you !

Jo Morrison Oct 2021


Fabulous now have total respect for dumpling makers!

Carla Williamson Oct 2021


A fun class, great explanation of the process & interaction from Dylan, Thankyou.

David Shaw Oct 2021


Great package and instructions, everything arrived promptly.

Luke Hyde Oct 2021


Great fun, engaging, easy to follow and delicious.

I would 100% recommend this to anyone

Cienna Glynn Oct 2021


Was way too fast to follow.

Howie Hill Oct 2021


Lots of fun and very tasty! Thank you!

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!
