The White House pastry chef will soon be leaving his prestigious job at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in D.C. Bill Yosses has decided to go to New York, where he plans educate children and adults about eating healthy.
The person who served as a great inspiration for Yosses’ next endeavor is Michelle Obama. The First Lady is the one who pulled Yosses away from creating sugar laden desserts.
She directed him to make small portioned, delicious tasting goodies that are entirely healthy. Over time, the healthy eating mantra became a passion for Yosses and now he’s hoping to spread his knowledge to New Yorkers.
Yosses was hired in 2007 by Laura Bush. Back then his job involved making plates filled with cookies and sugar sculptures. When the Obamas took over the White House and Michelle had a talk with the chef, Yosses began switching out butter for fruit puree.
Healthy versions of oatmeal bars and fresh baked apple cobblers soon replaced the cookies and cakes. Yosses’ will be leaving his position in June.
That will give him an opportunity to spend time with his husband who has lived in New York for years.
Yosses' successor has not yet been chosen.
