Otao Kitchen are here to fulfill your dumpling dreams

In true Beat fashion of offering you free shit each week, we’ve partnered up with Otao Kitchen to offer you the mother of all free shits – a dumpling making experience for you and a friend.

Let’s face it; if you’re from Melbourne, no doubt you’ve indulged in more than a few dumplings. Heck, those little parcels of goodness are near the backbone of this city. But how are they made? Ever wanted to try doing it? Well, in true Beat fashion of offering you free shit each week, we’ve partnered up with Otao Kitchen to offer you the mother of all free shits – a dumpling making experience for you and a friend. Or love interest. Or your mum. We don’t care who.

Otao Kitchen is a catering service and cooking school located on Melbourne’s premier street for all things dumplings and Asian cuisine – Victoria Street, Richmond. They’ve been doing this business for years and are experts at offering in-depth and hands-on cooking classes for all levels of experience.

The institution is helmed by chef Hà Nguyen, who began his career in local restaurants in his native Vietnam, including the Hilton Opera Hotel Hanoi, before travelling to New Zealand to work and further study cooking and hospitality management. Since taking the plunge across the Tasman, Hà has worked with the Twelve Apostles Lodge Walk, developing the menu for Alkina Lodge along Victoria’s Great Ocean Road.

And while now in full swing with his Otao Kitchen project, Hà’s mission remains the same: to increase the accessibility of healthy food options and to build awareness of Asian cooking and cuisine. Otao’s classes are rooted in this mission and promise a thoughtful, authentic and adventurous experience from a team of experts.
