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. Young has also written extensively on the science of food and cooking for The Fat Duck Cookbook and has published scholarly research in the Journal of Agricultural Chemistry and Food Science.
