White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses is resigning after First Lady Michelle Obama fundamentally changed his job duties to focus on healthier food.
Yosses is leaving the White House in June to work on a new project focusing on food literacy and The New York Times says Michelle is partly to blame. The openly gay chef was hired by Laura Bush in 2007 to make his trademark cookie plates and sugar sculptures. Mrs. Obama took over in 2009 and ordered Yosses to make healthier plates in smaller portions.
Yosses began replacing butter with fruit puree and sugar with honey and agave. But Yosses was never fully committed to the new policy.

Whe need to get to the Hate Crime that’s at the heart of this story.
I think there’s a verse in “Walk on the Wild Side” that applies.
Way to go, Bill!! No sugar tonight for moochelle.
“Whe need to get to the Hate Crime thats at the heart of this story.”
The MSM would if it was a Republican administration.
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. I wish Bill and his husband, Charlie, all the best in their future endeavors, Michelle Obama said.
The openly gay chef...”
...I’m openly straight and nobody seems to care! How “openly gay” is he anyway? Does he attach “I’m gay” to everything he says?
Telling a world class pastry chef how to make pastry takes a lot of crust.
A gay pastry chef....Now there’s something you don’t see everyday.
Exactly. Where was the media trumpeting this back then.
You can bet it would be a big deal now though that he is quitting because of the first lady.
I’ll bet the real reason is that he knows that she’s scarfing down “bad” food on the side by the truckload and has had lipo suction to hide it.
The openly gay chef was hired by Laura Bush in 2007”
...YOU’D THINK THE BUSH’S WOULD GET A LITTLE CREDIT FROM THE MSM FOR THEIR “TOLERANCE AND DIVERSITY”.
He really wants to focus on seducing Ron ben-Isreal away from his ...um...boyfriend.
When this first caught my eye I quickly looked at who was posting it, thinking it was John Semmons.
If this were fiction, no one would believe it.
I just assumed he was a very happy fellow...
This would actually be news if he was a “straight” pastry chef.
An artist should use the best tools for his work, not the choice of some opinionated outsider.
I stand with his decision.
I’d like to know why the writer thought the chef being gay had anything to do with why working for that harpie justification enough for leaving.
He should start a wedding cake business.
