THE HAPPY HOUR TEAM BUILDING 

We will be cultivating a fun and imaginative atmosphere, making delicious food and drinks to share in this virtual team-building ‘happy hour’. Through an approachable back-to-the-basics style of cooking and hospitality, we empower people to connect and develop as a group. Our chef instructors have structured a fun, engaging, and interactive program using food and beverages as a vehicle for inspiring deeper connections. We provide a variety of food-based experiences like home cook-offs, cocktail workshops, cooking classes, contests, and challenges.

ONLINE COOKING CLASS 

Allow 1.5-2 hours from $390 for 10 pax. Extra $15pp
In this online cooking class, your team members can cook, connect and celebrate together. This virtual cooking event can be hosted by our chef in Melbourne to the comfort of the participants' kitchen anywhere via Zoom. You choose the menu, we may change a little to reflect the timing and send you a list of ingredients, so your members can include them in their normal shopping. Our menu below has been customised to use your local supermarket (Australia - Coles, and Woolworth) or (New Zealand - New World, Countdown).   We can modify recipes and ingredients to suit any dietary requirements. The virtual cooking events can range in duration from 1 to 2 hours and are for a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 40 Zoom connections. All you need is a laptop, tablet, or mobile phone, a functioning kitchen, and a few pantry basics. Check the ingredient list before booking classes in 

ONLINE COOKING CLASS + MAGIC BOX OF INGREDIENTS

Allow 1.5-2 hours from $119pp-$165pp

Online cooking classes with our magic box of ingredients are the best activity to do with your team or clients? Perhaps an alternative to your end-of-year party or a gift? Live private cooking classes with Otao kitchen chefs are the perfect way to enjoy great food, learn new tricks, and get together when it's not so easy to physically get together. We'll deliver everything including some stool (no meat/seafood) so you and your guests need to cook along at home, so all that's left is to log on our Zoom, hone your cooking skills, eat delicious food, and have a great time. Generally, we need 7 working days to deliver your boxes to a metro city, and it will be more for regional cities and towns in Australia. The meals will be vegetarian, and we will include in your note if you want to have the option to add meats and seafood.  Check the menu here

A great way to spend time in iso. Instructions were clear and everyone worked at their own pace. The family was very impressed with my new Vietnamese cooking skills. Loved it.

Mandy M . Nasdag Australia

I booked with Otao Kitchen for a corporate Zoom-based dumpling-making class. Chef Ha was a pleasure to deal with and very professional. He sent clear instructions prior to the class on what the attendees needed (or alternatives for dietary), his instruction during the class was perfect with great use of multiple cameras so all could clearly see what results in we needed. Chef Ha made it a very fun and informative experience, our staff is very pleased with the new skills they learned during the session. I look forward to booking more online classes with Otao kitchen.
