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 Teacher was really kind and informative, even helping us catch up as we were late. He used the TV tool available well and was more than happy to repeat himself on occasions where we had fallen behind. He also came around to check in on everyone and make sure they were doing okay. This was also good because he wasn't negative or criticising at all while walking around and only offered assistance  + more

The first teacher did not explain things properly, there was a language barrier and difficult to follow. Second teacher was amazing very clear instructions and excellent. Disappointing that we didnt gook Prawn curry masala which was on the booking sheet. Also I came alone so to have to share ingredients and cooking with somebody where knew very little was difficult.

This was my first time attending such a class and I was already impressed by the very professional, as in the clean, spacious lay out.

Dylan the teacher was great, a lot of the food was prepped for us which was excellent, loved the social distancing, facilities are good, using a camera to project on a big screen allowed the entire class to see what was going on if you could not get up the front. Overall a great experience. Well worth the money and we intend to book another course.

Thai Cooking Class



This is my second Otao kitchen cooking class. I was amazed that something I cooked with my own hands could taste this good. We made corn fritters, green papaya salad and either red duck curry or green chicken curry, the flavours and taste were a great surprise, exceeding my expectations. The Brut sparkling was great and teachers very knowledgeable and friendly. Booked more classes.

Dumpling Cooking Class



We attended the class with 3 generations of family members - from 10 years old to grandparents. Everyone loved the class, learning to make dumplings from scratch. The teacher was great - demonstrating the making of the dough and filling, the different folds - and then came around giving individual assistance and guidance. It was a fantastic experience!

Mexican Cooking Class



I arrived early and was told to take a walk around the neighbourhood and come back which I wasn’t particularly partial to. But the class was excellent, we made tortillas from scratch, amazing chopping cooking flipping tortillas, really tasty food and there was plenty to take home too. They had containers and bags ready for us. Overall positive experience.

Really enjoyed my class at Otao Kitchen. The teacher, Dylan was very skilled and knowledgable. I liked how we had the option of gathering around, but also that the steps were live recorded and broadcast on the screen. The food itself was tasty and portions were great. My only suggestion is that at three hours it does go quite late, we went over and finished up at 9:45 and so I think it could have been  + more

Chef Hu was organised and social with a good sense of humour! All ingredients were supplied and food intolerances were catered for. The recipes were emailed through ahead of time. The venue is very well set up and comfortable to work in. Once we had finished making the dumplings we had a little feast accompanied by a beverage of choice. The dumplings were soo yummy!

Make Chinese Dumplings at Home with an Ingredients Kit



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

A little disappointed they started without us. Due to sudden onset of very wild weather and flooded roads, I felt they could have waited a few minutes. I’m sure we all remembered that night. Wasn’t our plan to be late. Loved the barramundi, disappointed there was no sweet. Kakadu plum fudge was on menu when booking. Really needed a sweet, would have been nice to finish off with a sweet dish. Teacher needs a microphone, echoes. And when the lovely helpers cleaning up after us were around it was really noisy.

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.

Pizza Making Master Class



Good class and Dylan was good but we felt a little more introduction of the other attendees would have been good as it felt like we were a bit divided.

Great class and great value for money. You definitely need to prepare all ingredients in advance so you can keep up. It's also important to start shopping for all ingredients early as they can be tricky to find.

Dumpling Cooking Class



our team got together for our End of year Christmas break up and did a dumpling making course. The venue was great and in a central location, our teacher Dylan was fantastic, didn't go too fast and made sure everyone was on track and most of all the food was amazing. Would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to get their teams together or even a group of friends.

It was a fantastic experience, they tasted amazing and the teacher explained everything really clearly. It was great having the recipe and video so I could practice before the class. I am only 13 and I feel like I could start a dumpling restaurant now, highly recommended :) Thank you!

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.

Thai Cooking Class



Had a great time learning to cook Thai dishes. The skill level was pitched well. Not too hard. The ingredients were fragrant and the teacher unpretentious and helpful. There were good options for different dietary preferences. It was fun and I felt very satisfied with the result. enjoyed eating our delicious creations and brought leftovers home which was a bonus. Time well spent. I would certainly take another Master class at Otao Kitchen.
