French Cooking Classes with Chef Zivko

After moving to New York City in 2010, Loza’s chef and founder enjoyed working in several distinctive restaurants, such as Geisha, Jung Sik, Picholine, Eleven Madison Park, Daniel, Juni, and Contra. While he was learning from chefs with Michelin-star backgrounds on his gastronomic journey, he returned the favor by bringing European cultural heritage and its taste to their kitchens.

And now chef Zivko wants to share all his rich experience with you, revealing culinary secrets easily with no regret! What a privilege! So hurry up and join us to explore the French heritage together and get valuable culinary tips and tricks from our Chef!

It’s not only experience that makes Zivko a great chef, but his family heritage as well. He comes from a long line of professionals in the world of gastronomy, including his great aunt who was a pastry chef to the Yugoslavian President Josip Broz Tito.
