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.

Thai cooking class was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Very knowledgeable friendly teacher and great atmosphere. Recipes easy to follow and very yummy food.

Tony Wohlers Jan 2020


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.
