Former White House Pastry Chef Amps Up Flavor In New Dessert Cookbook
Bill Yosses was the White House Pastry Chef from 2007-2014, hired by First Lady Laura Bush and baking under The Obamas -- working with First Lady Michelle Obama on her Let’s Move! Campaign - specifically by increasing the use of fresh, natural ingredients and decreasing the portion size and amount of refined sugar.
Since leaving Washington DC, Yosses has operated The Perfect Pie in New York City and since February he’s provided the pre-show pies for the Off-Broadway production of Sweeney-Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street in New York City.
The Sweet Spot: Dialing Back Sugar and Amping Up Flavor is a new cookbook, co-written by Yosses and Peter Kaminsky and featuring wonderful photographs by Evan Sung.
