Jacques et Laurent Pourcel

Region : 
Montpellier, FRANCE

Twin sons of a winegrower and equally enamored with the pleasures of taste, Jacques and Laurent Pourcel began their careers separately before opening Le Jardin des Sens in Montpellier together in 1988.

Ten years later a third star rewarded their dual talent, which serves so well the other cuisine from the South of France: that of Languedoc.

With their four hands, they have a talent for producing contradictory flavors, so that in their dishes the contrasts meld together, as when the almond delicately sweetens the bold flavor of a green olive tapenade
