The son of a starred chef, Olivier Durand began his first vegetable garden at the age of six. After studying agricultural engineering, he decided to travel around the world to learn about techniques near and far. He returned from his journeys with a single-minded goal: to grow good vegetables. As a small Noah’s Arc, his vegetable garden is home to a palette of multiple varieties of plants that he cultivates with utmost care. Leeks, peas, and carrots grow alongside Japanese vegetables. Olivier Durand is a supplier and kindred spirit to Ze Kitchen Galerie.
