Daniel Young is the London pop-up pioneer behind youngandfoodish.com and its BurgerMonday, PizzaTuesday and SpagWednesday event series. In September 2015 he organised the first ever London Pizza Festival at the renowned Borough Market.
With everything he does Daniel pursues the same two-prong strategy: First find great things to eat and then share them with you.
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 and The Guardian. He was named Online Writer of the Year at the 2013 Fortnum & Mason Food and Drink Awards.
He has headlined dining and tasting events in London, Marseille, Toronto, Montréal, New York, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Naples (Italy), Yountville (Napa Valley), Philadelphia, and Washington, DC.
His next book, “Where to Eat Pizza”, a guide to the best pizza places in 48 countries, will be published in April 2016 by Phaidon Press.
