Hi! I’m Olivia Kaye, the blogger behind Olivia’s Palate. After dabbling in the construction industry after college and then pursuing a management consulting career, I decided to quit my job in June 2015 to spend time exploring the world and my passion for food and cooking full time.
I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, but spent the majority of my childhood summers in Brittany, France with my French mother’s side of the family. While in Brittany, I cultivated a deep interest in food and where it comes from. I would spend my summer weekends with my Mamie at the morning market in Larmor Plage, learning about the seasonality of produce and establishing connections with the food vendors. I also enjoyed spending time with my grandmother’s friends, Annie and Jacques, where I would gather fresh eggs and cherries at their farm. These memories have made a huge impact on my life and how I view the world around us.
I spend my spare time experimenting in the kitchen, exploring new foods, lifting heavy and traveling off the grid. By day, I am a full time traveler and have no permanent residence.
