REVIEWS


Great Hands On Family Friendly by Sazzle Daisy

On July 7th my two children (age 8 & 9) and I spent a lovely afternoon learning the basics of Vietnamese cooking with Ha. We made simple but delicious chicken dumplings, rice paper rolls and sesame sweet rice dough balls. Ha also introduced us to a range of Vietnamese herbs, seasonings and fruits. Ha is clearly very passionate about sharing his craft and nurturing a love of cooking in children. Parking was free and easy directly in front of the shop (beware of the clearway times though), allow extra time to get there though because Google maps has clearly never travelled along Punt or Victoria St!

I really enjoyed being able to share this hands on experience with my children. And whilst I felt that the cooking skills taught were perhaps a little too basic they described it as "EPIC" and frankly, they're the ones who count! Highly recommend :)


Best Kid Party by Linda W

I would highly recommend Otao Kitchen cooking class. Ha is a lovely friendly chef and his cooking class was very enjoyable for our kids. The mothers dropped off the kids and I was only one who stay. From there the kids made different dumplings with meats, vegetables and spices.

The kids love their own creations. I Would highly recommend Otao for kid party. No clean up and great fun too. 


WHY COOKING WITH KIDS?

Using our natural fresh ingredient method we have coined the phrase “I Tried and I Liked It”. We found that when kids are involved in the preparation of their own meal, they will try and like foods they would not have otherwise given a chance.​ 

Children and their parents can learn in a range of classes from sushi classes to dumplings. Children’s baking classes are taught by expert chefs with experience in child friendly settings so that your children are helped to become mini cooks.

If cooking and eating is one of life’s greatest pleasures, teach them young. There’s so much to learn through cooking skills which goes way beyond the aesthetic value of food. Measuring, weighing, estimating, guesstimating, socialising, learning about tastes, textures; the list goes on.

Whatever the case,  with expertise in cooking on family food programmes, we have seen and helped hundreds of families become better at teaching food at home. Our chef has working with children check.
