Olivia’s culinary odyssey is marked by a relentless pursuit of learning and creativity. From her humble beginnings in France to her globe-trotting adventures, she has shaped her culinary identity with a blend of generosity, locality, and seasonality. Her cooking is a form of “edible writing,” characterized by thoughtfulness, respect, and care, all infused with an artistic touch. For Olivia, the kitchen is a sanctuary where she expresses her creativity and finds fulfillment in the emotional connections her cuisine fosters.


Among Olivia's standout creations is the "Leek à la Passionfruit." Conceived on the fly during her time at a resort, this vegetarian fine dining dish emerged from necessity and ingenuity. Inspired by the classic French "Leek à la Vinaigrette," Olivia added a twist by infusing the vinaigrette with the tangy acidity of passionfruit. The result? A harmonious marriage of flavors that has since become a culinary masterpiece in her repertoire.
