Looking for fun team building activities in Melbourne? Join this interactive team cooking challenge with Otao Kitchen!

Together we will help support homeless people's basic needs. Explore your team's true reasons for giving, make it a core part of your culture and encourage your employees’ involvement with team building activities. Plus we will give 10% on behalf of you to the charity we support.

Besides just being the right thing to do, giving brings positive energy to your team culture and boosts morale. It’s a way to better lives throughout our community, and it provides a greater purpose for the work your people do daily.

Not to mention, participation in community service activities can help to recognise top team members within the company. This improves its employer brand and creates better team work and engagement.

In this class, your group gets together to enjoy a hands-on cooking experience with plenty of entertainment to prepare a social cook-off party. This class is perfect for clients or work colleagues cooking together looking to ignite their culinary passions.

Located conveniently in Richmond, our facility is a purpose-built space offering a range of hands-on and demonstration-style Asian cooking classes to suit your event. Our training kitchen is fully equipped, using the latest induction cooking technology which is efficient and safe for you and your group.

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.
