Michelle Obama's pastry chef resigns: More on the story

The departure of the White House pastry chef, Bill Yosses, shines a spotlight on the White House kitchen operation, First Lady Michelle Obama’s healthy eating drive and her garden on the South Lawn. Want to know more?

Obamafoodorama, the publication of record when it comes to the White House and food and food policy, has an in-depth article on Yosses and a picture spread of some of the pastry wonders he’s whipped up these past years.

Obamafoodorama editor and founder Eddie Gehman Kohan writes, “Yosses is the first kitchen principle to depart during the Obamas’ tenure. The White House pastry shop is equal parts high-volume bakery–some 25,000 cookies were baked just for last year’s Christmas holiday season, Yosses said, with dough-making beginning in July–as well as ground zero for fine sugar art. It is an exhausting if exhilarating place to work.”
