Are you looking for a gig? Can you make a mean pie? Well, Michelle Obama is hiring. The New York Times reported that long-time White House pastry chef, Bill Yosses, is leaving in June.
Originally hired by former First Lady Laura Bush, Yosses has been in the post for seven years and has made plenty of pastries, pies, Gingerbread houses and other baked goods for the Obamas and their guests.
Yosses, 60, is best known for his 300-pound gingerbread house that was a popular holiday item. President Barack Obama was a big fan of his pies, dubbing him the “Crust Master.”
Yosses is moving to New York to teach healthy eating and to be with his husband, Charlie Jandusay Fabella Jr., a teacher. While working with Michelle Obama in the White House, Yosses was tasked to make smaller, healthier desserts and to use ingredients, including fruits and berries, from the White House garden.
“I am also so grateful to him for his outstanding work, not just as the White House pastry chef producing the most delectable creations for everything from birthday celebrations to state visits, but also as a key partner helping us get the White House Kitchen Garden off the ground and building a healthier future for our next generation,” Mrs. Obama said in a statement.
