CHEF ROMAIN AVRIL
Born in Paris, France in 1985, Trademark Executive Chef Romain Avril discovered his passion for cooking at the early age of thirteen. By seventeen, he was working at a 1 Star Michelin restaurant in Paris. He obtained his Bachelor Degree in French and Chinese gastronomy in France while concurrently working at 1 and 2 Star Michelin restaurants, including Relais et Chateaux. At 21, Avril moved to London and began cooking at The Greenhouse in Mayfair, London. It was at this 2 Michelin Star restaurant that Avril had the opportunity to try his culinary hand at feeding important UK politicians, as well as celebrities, such as Tom Cruise. It was in England that Avril began moving away from his classic French training and towards fusion and molecular gastronomy. In 2010, Avril decided to move to Canada, a country he had briefly visited and vowed to come back to. He started as a Sous Chef at Colborne Lane Restaurant in Toronto, moving on to become a Chef at Origins North Restaurant and Bar and finally Executive Chef at the renowned La Societe Bistro.
