She defines herself with the words: cook, maker, humility and work. She was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and her taste for good food was developed very early, in the warmth of her mother's kitchen which overflowed with German pastries. It was through helping her mother that she discovered the delight of entertaining her loved ones with her creations.
She studied cooking in Buenos Aires and was trained under the attentive tutelage of the famous Argentine chef Francis Mallmann, with whom she worked for almost 10 years. She traveled the world, working in Argentina, the United Kingdom, France, Brazil, Canada, Chile and Uruguay. In London she staged at the acclaimed River Café.
Back in her native country of Argentina, she ventured with great success into different aspects of culinary activity. In 2008 she began to collaborate with El Gourmet, and as guest star in several programs, stood out for her warm, serene and very close communication.
As a businesswoman and entrepreneur, Juliana has developed several product lines that include: a line of gourmet preserves, vegetarian burgers under the brand name DELITAS, Spices & Herbs, and frozen cakes; all under the Juliana López May brand.
