Patrick Williams is a chef with a mission – to introduce the British public to the tantalising smells and tastes of the Caribbean and change the misapprehension that Caribbean food is searingly hot and too stodgy. In his kitchen he creates delectable lightly spiced twists on British classics. A rising star of the London restaurant scene, Patrick has written The Caribbean Cook and has appeared on many popular TV shows.
Before opening his own restaurant, The Terrace In The Fields, Patrick worked his way up in the kitchens of some of the most prestigious and demanding names in British cooking. His baptism of fire came at The Canteen under Marco Pierre White; he would return later to work with White again as Senior Sous Chef at The Criterion and Titanic, after stints at The Ivy and Green’s Oyster Bar and Restaurant.
