Bringing Innovation to Cuisine


Born in Paris, France in 1985,  Chef Romain Avril discovered his passion for cooking at the early age of thirteen. By seventeen, he was working at a 1 Michelin Star restaurant in Brittany (France). He obtained his Bachelor Degree in French and Chinese gastronomy in his native land of France, while concurrently working at 1 and 2 Star Michelin restaurants as well as Relais et Chateaux venues. 
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 well known celebrities.  
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 when a teenager, and vowed to come back to. He started as a Sous Chef at Colborne Lane Restaurant in Toronto, then moved on to open Origin North Restaurant and Bar as the Chef De Cuisine. Finally, he achieved Executive Chef at the renowned La Société Bistro.
He then took on the big project of opening Lavelle restaurant as well as Goldie Bar. His latest project was  opening Neruda, in the Beaches area of Toronto.
Chef Avril is the Canadian ambassador for Nespresso and Monogram. He had also represented brands such as Google, Club house, Goose Island, Circle K, Club House, Ace Bakery, South Paw Era and Zwilling, to name a few.
He has appeared on TV segments and shows on numerous occasions, including the Food Network channel. He has been featured in multiple food, lifestyle, home and fashion magazines.
In 2017 Chef Romain created his own company “Romain Avril Inc” and is currently  working on opening few restaurants as well as the writing of a vegan cookbook.
