Chef Luciana “Uchi” Davidzon was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

A dessert writer and editor at About.com, a digital property of The New York Times Company, she also publishes the Latin Food Lovers blog, which was awarded the best food blog by Blogs By Latinas Awards 2011, and writes a column for The Huffington Post.
