    About me

    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 and restaurant operations if needed. and may be supply some kitchen props...soon.

    I am fully insured, possess a valid hygiene 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.
