LUKA began in 2009 as an Eastern European pop-up dinner series in Portland, Oregon. Founded by writer and veteran culinary professional John J. Goddard, the series now calls St. Louis, Missouri its home. Before the coronavirus pandemic took its toll on the dining and events industries, LUKA event menus changed frequently to represent the classic dishes of various Slavic and Eastern European countries.
Though all upcoming LUKA events have been cancelled, a new line of Eastern European food delivery services and educational initiatives is currently in development. We occasionally send out e-mail newsletters to keep you informed of menus, services, and new media. You can sign up to receive such bulletins below.
