In Young & Hungry, two worlds collide when Josh, a wealthy young tech entrepreneur, meets Gabi, a feisty young food blogger, looking to be his personal chef. Gabi is desperate for the job and must prove herself, mostly to Josh's aide, who prefers a famous chef for the job. When Josh enlists Gabi to prepare a romantic meal for him and his girlfriend, the dinner goes awry and Gabi finds herself in a very awkward position. With the help of her best friend Sofia and Josh's housekeeper, Gabi turns a difficult situation into an opportunity for employment and maybe even love.
Young & Hungry is nicely paced, and even in the first episode, the humor is character-driven. It's as uncomplicated, and tasty, as a good grilled cheese.St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
A more than occasionally funny show in which Gabi (Emily Osment), an appealing but financially challenged food blogger, becomes personal chef to Josh (Jonathan Sadowski), an appealing but romantically challenged tech-ionaire.Los Angeles Times Full Review
Everything in Young & Hungry is predictable, including most of the jokes.Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
Unfortunately, that suggestion of recklessness doesn’t extend to the dialogue, which feels like a focus group’s idea of what young people do (propose, have jobs) and joke about (Google), and borrows liberally from long-familiar punchlines.The A.V. Club Full Review
