Pastry Chef and Cake Making Services
I've ordered Zefir pastries for the Bridal Shower. They were amazingly good, delicious! Everybody enjoyed them. Kateryna is very skillful and knowledgeable Chef. She also have a very interesting and informative web page, which has been a big inspiration to me. I like that she does not just provide recipes, but explains chemistry of cooking.Apr 26, 2016Verified
Private Cooking Lessons
This was such an incredible experience!! I highly recommend hiring Kate for any and all occasions. We did the Sushi class for 2. She spends time ensuring you have the best experience possible. She is so knowledgeable and is incredibly talented. We enjoyed chatting with Kate about our shared passion for food. Can’t wait to take another class!!!Mar 30, 2019Verified
I hired Lyukum Cooking Lab to do a Japanese cooking class in my home. Kate was easy, creative, and helpful to work with. She was very knowledgeable about Japanese ingredients, preparation, and customs. She tailored her presentation to our group as she went along. And best of all...the food was amazing. She even supplied beautiful authentic plates for serving. I would highly recommend Kate for any entertaining or class you might be interested in.Jun 7, 2019Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?1. I talk to my customers to discuss all the details. If needed, I invite them to my free demo. 2. We set the date and time. Two days before the event, I expect my customers to confirm the date, time, and a number of guests. Two days before the event is the last time when my clients can make changes, including cancellation of the event free of charge. 3. After confirmation, I provide my kitchen address and final instructions. All changes related to the event made after confirmation are subject to a fee. Last minute cancellation should be paid 50% of the price.
