Description

JAPANESE COOKING ONLINE

The food of Japan is often based on the freshest seafood, seasonal vegetable and Japanese ways of simplicity. So we will present you with a focus on fresh seasonal produce, prepared meticulously and presented beautifully. Japanese Inspired dining is a memorable experience. Too many beautiful dishes to prepare, we will work on something you can make at home. Most ingredients can be bought locally, such as everyday groceries and vegetables. We have chosen recipes for this series, that do not require hard to find, specialist ingredients or unique kitchen equipment. That said, Japanese food does rely on a few core ingredients, and you will need the odd jar of miso, dried shiitake mushroom or bottle of soya sauce. Once bought these core Japanese ingredients can be kept in store for use again and future meals.

HOW WE RUN THE CLASS?

  • Learning by doing! You can start cooking at your own pace before and after actual zoom class because we email you ingredient list, recipes and video. 
  • We will answer your question pre and post-class by email and telephone. If you made the recipes, you would have more questions for us, and that's great. We hope this is one of your favourite dishes for some time!
  • We recommend you to watch the pre-recorded the video below to understand the dish before you start making and cooking. We know it might be difficult to find ingredients, and it is better to build up the pantry slowly. 
  • The Live Cooking Demonstration Webinars are advertised here for ZOOM class. You can also join us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/otaokitchen.  
  • While our kitchen studio is a licensed venue so our staff can be there to oversee the liquor consumption, in this online cooking class, you are welcome to BYO your wine and beer. However, for safety, please focus on cooking, and you can drink with the meal later.

WHAT TO BRING?

We recommend for you to measure and put all the ingredients on a dish/tray to be ready to cook. This way, you can enjoy yourself while connecting to others. If you tell us about your dietary requirement, we can suggest some substitute ideas. We will do our best to help you to cook the dishes on the menu. We might be able to organise an ingredient pack for you and your guests for an extra cost if you are within 5km from Richmond, Melbourne.

Otao kitchen was launched in Richmond, 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.

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 food experiences on Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Dumplings, Indian, Korean, Indonesian, as well as French, Italian, Spanish, Mexican cuisines 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. 

Otao kitchen is named after Ông Táo, the Vietnamese Kitchen God. Ông Táo is regarded as the advocate of Vietnamese families to the gods and a messenger between Heaven and Earth. In preparation for a prosperous year, Vietnamese families clean their homes and polish their silver. During the New Year celebrations, Ông Táo comes to serve as the Kitchen God to Vietnamese families. As the old year ends, he flys back to Heaven on a magic carp reporting on each family’s life and experiences over the past year to the Jade Emperor, the King of Heaven. Ông Táo is regarded as a family member and various prayers and offerings are brought to him at the family altar. 

Otao Kitchen aims to increase the accessibility of healthy food options with hands-on cooking. Our cooking classes offer you an intelligent, thoughtful and authentic cooking experience - that is fun, adventurous and suitable for people of all ages, teams, work party, backgrounds or levels of cooking skills. The skills you will learn are fully transferable to your own kitchen and we look forward to hearing and seeing what you create at home after the classes.
