“If food is the new rock ‘n’ roll I want flavors that soar, harmonies that hum. I want foods that hook you for good.”
– Daniel Young, the Young in Young & Foodish
Daniel Young is the London pop-up pioneer behind youngandfoodish.com and its BurgerMonday, PizzaTuesday and SpagWednesday event series. He is the author of Where To Eat Pizza, the new 576-age guide from Phaidon to the best pizza places in the world.
With everything he does, from exclusive pizza tours in Naples to pizza festivals in London and around the world, Daniel follows the same two-prong strategy:
- Find great things to eat.
- Share them with you in imaginative ways.
His selective pursuit of the food classics we love most inspire everything Young & Foodish: The events. The blog. The community of likeminded food obsessives. The mindset. His discoveries have formed the basis of five cookbooks, including The Paris Cafe Cookbook and Made in Marseille; three restaurant guides; dozens of magazine articles; and 100s of newspaper restaurant reviews. From 1996-2000 he was restaurant critic of the New York Daily News. He has written about food for The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Times of London, The Guardian, Conde Nast Traveler and Bon Appetite Magazine. He was named Online Writer of the Year at the 2013 Fortnum & Mason Food and Drink Awards.
As a guest speaker Daniel has headlined dining and tasting events in London, Paris, Marseille, Toronto, Montréal, New York, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Naples (Italy), Yountville (Napa Valley), Philadelphia, and Washington, DC.
