Steve Young was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1964 and began to cook as an apprentice in the Central Hotel, the Grosvenor Hotel and the Royal Scottish Club in Glasgow, before moving to Jersey, UK to work at the Grand Hotel and the Hotel de La Plage.
In 1986, he moved to Bermuda and began working his way up the kitchen ladder at the Four Ways Inn, finally becoming executive chef in 1995. In 1999, the television crew for Great Chefs television arrived to tape Chef Young at the Four Ways for the Discovery Channel’s Great Chefs of the World. (Chef Young appears in episodes 188 and 215.)
In early 2000 he moved to Charlotte, North Carolina to become chef de cuisine for The King’s Kitchen. The restaurant features new local southern cuisine, and their mission is to donate 100% of its profits to the poor in the Charlotte area. Chef Steve Young is still doing this today, in 2016.
