Zac Young Opens "Flex Donuts"

Top Chef: Just Desserts contestant, Zac Young has been very busy since his appearance on the show.

In addition to the new pop-up donut shop, Zac is also filming new episodes of The Cooking Channel show, "Unique Sweets."

Life for Young has been a blur since the debut of Bravo’s reality television show “Top Chef: Just Desserts” in 2010, which brought him unexpected fame. Though already known in the pastry industry for his creative and quirky desserts, Young soon discovered that his new found fame meant getting recognized on the street by strangers, cutting the line at New York City clubs and flying across the country for special appearances for popular food festivals. The fame also means that he’s working harder than ever. While putting in 75 hours weekly as executive pastry chef at Flex Mussels he is also filming new episodes the Cooking Channel’s “Unique Sweets,” a show that explores the creative concoctions of pastry chefs across America. Despite all the publicity, Young says that he works hard to keep his ego in check, making time for his close friends and an occasional night out on the town. His continued popularity hasn’t gone to his head – at least not entirely.
