He let behind his doctoral work for a job as commis chef at one of Seattle’s top-rated restaurants, and quickly earned a reputation for his ability to apply science and technology in the kitchen. At The Fat Duck, Young expanded the experimental kitchen from one to more than six full-time chefs. He also coordinated the work of several consultant scientists. Beyond developing new dishes for The Fat Duck’s menu, Young managed recipe development for the critically acclaimed first and second seasons of BBC’s Heston Blumenthal: In Search of Perfection.
