Mrs. Patmore

Mrs. Patmore

Cook

As a mother figure to Daisy, Mrs. Patmore imparts her wisdom and guidance with barked orders and biting wit, but she cannot mask her tender concern about Daisy's unrequited affection for Alfred. She is proud of Daisy's accomplishments, and she willingly mentors Ivy and even Alfred. Smoothing the way for their growth and careers doesn't threaten her; it's the newfangled kitchen appliances that inspire her fear of obsolescence! Until such time, she will continue to produce culinary delights and dispense romantic advice.
