Panmedia TV Presenters Agent


When Peter Gorton is not busy in his kitchen at the ‘Horn of Plenty’ concocting yet another culinary masterpiece, he can be found with his family enjoying an energetic run in the beautiful Tamar Valley, or relaxingly painting and drawing the local stunning views.  Additionally, he assists The Children’s Hospice South West and this year raised quite a large sum for the children, by taking part in the London Marathon and orchestrating the Tavistock Food Festival for the fourth successive year.

Being Welsh, rugby is in the blood and Peter follows the sport passionately, but is more often relegated to watching it on TV due to his hectic schedule.

Peter is a Fellow and Vice Chairman of the Master Chefs of Great Britain and is a member of the Euro Toques, representing the South West of England
