Philippe Avril           Home Economist                                      Howwood, Scotland 

Philippe Avril is a home economist, based in Howwood near Glasgow in Scotland. UK

I am originally from Marseille, France, but I came to Scotland in 1992 and fell in love with the country and the people so I stayed here to live and work....

After a successful career as head chef and restauranteur, and a wee accident in 2014, I found myself working as an assistant greensman for the TV series Outlander 1.

One day, I was asked to do some food to display on-screen...the rest is history.

From then on, I decided to take my skills and knowledge forward to the film, tv and media industry as a home economist.

As well as researching, designing, making and dressing food for display on-screen, I also provide actors and S.As with great edible and tasty food while filming, looking after continuity and repeats using my knowledge to follow hygiene rules.

I can also provide advice on kitchen dressing and restaurant service operations if needed, and supply some kitchen props....

I am fully insured, possess a valid hygiene certificate, a covid19 awarness certificate, a clean driving licence and can travel anywhere.

I also try to promote food recycling and minimum waste on set whenever possible and give edible unused food to local food banks.
