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.

This was a really fun event. It was a birthday celebration and included the birthday girl, her siblings, parents and grandparents through three Zoom connections. Dylan was a terrific teacher. He was very patient, repeated or clarified steps as required and made the whole experience so enjoyable. He is also a very accomplished dumping chef! Thank you Dylan

Loved this class, Chef Dylan paced the lesson well and we were able to make 3 dishes. All the recipes were provided in advance and all the ingredients were used. We made a noodle dish, fried rice and an amazing pork wonton soup. Dylan even showed us different ways to fold the wontons. Overall a great lesson and value for money.

Dumpling Cooking Class



Just visited Otao over the weekend for a Dumpling cooking class! It was fantastic! So much fun and so easy to learn from chef Ha. He was very kind and funny and showed you in detail how to perform each step. We weren't rushed at all. We made chicken and pork dumplings. So much flavour with only a few ingredients. You also are offered a beer or wine to have with your dumplings once they're cooked. Definitely  + more

Chinese Cooking Class



Such an incredible class that packed in a lot of delicious authentic dishes. Dylan was fantastic at talking us through the how and why for each step so make sure we took home traditional lesson and ended up with a delicious dishes to enjoy. 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.
