Pastry Chefs, fire up those resumés. Bill Yosses, White House Pastry Chef since 2007, is moving on, citing a desire to relocate to New York to teach children and adults about the relationship between food and health. Just how and where he’ll do that is something of a mystery as of right now, but I’m sure there’ll be no end of opportunities in the Big Apple for the America’s former First Baker.
There’s been a dustup in the media over the meaning of his statement that he doesn’t “want to demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs.” Some have taken that as a swipe at Michelle Obama’s fresh food initiatives. Me, I just see it as a sign of a healthy outlook on life. Best of luck, Mr. Yosses, a grateful nation thanks you.
