Chef Biography


Patrick Mould was born in Paris and bred in Crowley, Louisiana. After attending culinary classes at Lafayette Vocational Tech, and continuing educational classes from the American Culinary Federation during the day, and working in restaurants at night, he became a certified chef.  His first chef job was at Cafe Vermilion where he stayed 5 years until he was offered a position as executive chef at Charlie G’s by owner Charlie Goodson.

In 1991, Goodson was expanding his Charlie G’s chain to the New Orleans area, but Mould wanted to stay in Cajun Country, so the two of them opened Hub City Diner.  Great Chefs taped Chef Mould there for the first Great Chefs Discovery Channel series, the Louisiana New Garde.

Chef Mould went on to become corporate chef and spokesperson for many organizations and off shore oil facilities, including Doerle’s Foodservice and Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning. Chef Mould then became executive chef at the City Club at River Ranch in Lafayette, Louisiana, which he left in 2011. Back in 1999, Chef Mould had become chef-owner of his Louisiana Culinary Enterprises, and in 2003, Cajun and Creole Culinary Adventures, both of which he still runs today.
