Television chef who started out as a television presenter, initially with HTV Wales, and then as one of the anchors for About Anglia and an Anglia TV announcer, in 1976 until the early 1980s.
His television culinary career began at About Anglia when he asked the programme’s bosses if he could demonstrate to viewers how an Irish coffee should be made. This turned into a regular slot on the programme – Patrick’s Pantry – and this in turn led to him making several food and cookery programmes for Anglia TV, and later for the BBC nationally.
Patrick also regularly manned Anglia’s continuity desk in the 1980s. In early 2002, Patrick returned to Anglia Television to present Take a Leaf, a new gardening and countryside show, which tells viewers how best to grow their own food.
More recently, Patrick appeared as one of the cooks on Ready, Steady, Cook.
