the "young" behind young&foodish

I’m Daniel Young and I'm taking comfort food
beyond its comfort zone.
My mission is to seek out the best, from burgers to
bolognese, pizza to pastrami…
…and then challenge great chefs like Giorgio Locatelli
to do better at one of my one-off events.
My London pop-ups have starred Lionel Lévy, up from
Marseille for a one-night-only BurgerMonday…
Arcangelo Dandini, Rome's pope of pasta, on a rare visit
to London for a SpagWednesday….
and Nigella Lawson, serving her delectable cakes and putting the "tea" in CoffeeSaturday.
"Daniel Young is a café fan obsessed with comfort food.
Big attractions are his pop-up events."
– The Times
"Mondays-Saturdays foodies are flocking to eat a specific meal,
cooked by a different chef, in a new place."
– Evening Standard
"Daniel Young has curated a series of dining events that
have become the toast of the pop-up scene."
– Stylist

London is One Hot Pizza Town

Competing for pizza glory at the 13th September London Pizza Festival the team behind Made of Dough chose to showcase its Chorizo pizza topped with spicy chorizo and piquillo peppers. The pizza dudes from Brixton clearly understood a factor that I, a Margherita man, have been slow to accept:

London is a hot pizza town.
